    How about you tell us what changed instead of linking us to a 4min video showing a bunch of other stuff?

    The YouTube app now allows ratings, in form of thumbs up or down. It also seems to be working better than before...

    From what I saw, I'm not impressed with iOS 4.2 and the new Youtube app is still not up to par with Android's new Youtube app. The new text tones are wack.

    When is apple going to make significant improvements? :rolleyes:

    But does the video quality match the web app? That's the major difference between the two now.

    It is kinda ridiculous that web app has better video quality than native app.

    Errm, how about you just watch the video? You're going to watch it to confirm anyway. :D

    I don't see any difference in quality between the mobile version and the YouTube app.

    Even in 3G?

    I haven't tested it yet. I have the Wifi model, but when I am on the road I use a mobile Wifi router that uses a 3G connection. I will test it with that.

    On my iPod touch, the native app has higher resolution even with HQ on web app.

    That's probably because in order for YouTube to work on the touch, you have to be connected to WiFi. If I remember correctly (I haven't used the stock app in a while), the iPhone's stock YouTube app's quality is pretty good on WiFi, it's just when you are on 3G it sucks. The Web App allows for "HQ" quality even when on 3G so it's much better then the crap the stock app produces on 3G.

    Agree the YouTube App sucks on 3G but its the best on wifi. The YouTube web app is good on 3G but not as good as the native app on wifi. Does anyone why Google hasn't upgraded it?

    The problem isn't with Google or YouTube. The problem is with the cellular providers and them not wanting their networks dragged down by YouTube.

    The app uses a gimped bitstream on 3G where the web app uses adaptive http steaming and html5. Thats why it's better
