That's a point, I think I remember they played OK when I first got the iPad. But now - the worst shade of crap!i have the same issue i dont know whats up. it seems like when i first got it videos seemed to play really fast but now its impossible. sometimes i leave a video loading for what seems like forever but still nothing
But that means no high quality versions, even on a desktop Mac. So that's no good!I trie d everything but in the end, what worked was this:
Go to YouTube.com
Login your account
Go to playback setup and select I have a slow connection.
No problems since then.
But movies embedded in apps and sites can't use this. So it's not a solution. And anyway, the Apple app should work without fannying around. I thought the iOS and iPad were supposed to be easy to use? Having to find work arounds for a multitude of issues (the YouTube issues is just one) shows a lack of attention to detail by Apple. (Which other issues I hear you say. Well try printing directly from an iPad Pages document.)Are you guuys using the YouTube app or m.YouTube.com? M.YouTube.com will load faster (slightly) and give you better quality according to google
They are identical, iPad-iMac on BT Broadband. Already been through all of this. I'm hoping for some fresh ideas, especially from Apple.What are your download and upload speeds on the iPad? (You can use SpeedTest.net) And what are you getting on your computer? It may be your router. I had the same problem with my iPhone, but it was happening with everything, it just showed up best in YouTube. I was getting 0.6Mbps down on my iPhone and 30Mbps down on my computer, it turned out to be a few settings on my router. Now I get 10mbps down.
Here are the settings:
Beacon Period - 50
RTS Threshold - 2305
Fragmentation Threshold - 2304
DTIM Interval - 1
Of course Google says that, Google owns YouTube...Are you guuys using the YouTube app or m.YouTube.com? M.YouTube.com will load faster (slightly) and give you better quality according to google
I don't really see how this could be an issue. Especially as, when I updated to iOS3.2.1 there was an update stall (yet another iPad issue!) and I had to restore the iPad and reinstall the Network with concomitant renewal of the Lease. But, notwithstanding that, my iPhone setup was uneventful so why shouldn't the iPad have been?Could it be your DNS?
I had tried this before, but tried again now - still no go! Getting bored with it now. No so magical, eh?Go to WI-FI and click on your network. Change your DNS to "184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11" This helped make it load faster. It still does stop sometimes but when it's not stopped it will load faster then the video.
My speed is 5.44 Mbps download and 0.90 Mbps upload.
