    I did a quick search on here and the google machine and couldn't find anything, so if this has been discussed post a link. I was searching for a music video on youtube app today and couldn't find the whole video or the official one. However when i went on the computer and searched the video was the first one on the list. So can someone explain to me why the app does this, is it a video quality issue or what?

    YouTube used to be Flash based.

    Upon the release of the original iPhone, they began converting their library to H264 (iPhone compatible).

    iPhone is only able to play the newer format, but not the older one. The search feature on your device is smart enough to know that it is not able to play the older format, and does not display it in your list.
