    I thought I could view YouTube videos in HQ. It seems to only work in the YouTube app, not when video is directed by Safari. I even have Safari turned on in My3G app. What am I doing wrong?

    I don't know I watch HQ youtube videos by going to m.youtube.com in safari and pushing the little HQ button.

    Then click play and it loads in the youtube app and looks great (like wifi).

    Honestly new to all this jailbreaking thing so thats about all the info I can give you.

    I know about the YouTube web page with HQ. What I say is when I read something on a website that has a video, I want to watch the video in HQ without leaving the page and go to YouTube site.

    That's what I do too, and you can also add it to your home screen.

    It's a bug with My3G with Youtube app at the moment.

    However, a piece of advice from me is that Youtube Mobile WebApp is a much superior place to browse youtube. And you just need to click HQ to force it to go HQ even on 3G ;)

    I haven't used the native Youtube app in quite a while now

    But when you're on Safari and you read a page with a video, you don't know what the title of the video is to search on YouTube. And you have to leave the web page. :(

    And again unfortunately My3G has Youtube app bug at the moment. Your real option for now is to use 3G unrestrictor and uninstall my3G

    3G unrestrictor can do it? Does it do FaceTime too?

    From what I have experience.. It seemed that I get better quality when I am on wifi, but usually low quality when I use 3g.. Anyone see the same thing?

    Maybe it just got to do with the 3G signal.. When you have low 3G signal the iPhone automatically adjust itself.

    Do I turn Safari on in 3G Unrestrictor to get YouTube to play in HQ inside Safari?
