YouTube is a lot slower (almost unusable) with 2.0!

    I have 2.0 on my Touch and before with 1.1.4 Youtube vids came up fairly quickly. Now they are pretty much unusable because of they're slowness to load.

    Has anyone else noticed this or is there a fix?

    I've found this. It used to be faster than my PC when I had 1.1.4, but now it's just stupidly slow. It takes about 15 minutes to load a 3 minute video fully. Its stupid.

    Hope they sort this out...

    YouTube seems to work as well as it did before on my Touch. I don't notice a slowdown at all.

    You need to consider that with another million iPhones recently sold, Youtube is being hit much harder as new users explore their apps. Obviously the favorites will be highest in demand. I suggest waiting a few weeks. I'll bet it will improve as new users grow bored with it.

    I find that YouTube works better than ever with the 2.0 update. It is not full of bugs and slowness like it was before.
