YouTube videos on iPad

Hi there...

Need some advice with regards to Youtube videos on the iPad.
I've tried playing quite a few vids using the app but many of them showed the message that the movie format is not supported.

When I got lucky after trying almost 10+ videos, the Quality was really yucky! Is there something which I can do to tweak? Or is it a HW prob?

Btw, can we view trailers frm apple site on the iPad? Again, am unsure if it's a tech ids on my pad..

Thanks in advance!

you using 3G to access the youtube site? the youtube app stream a lower quality when using 3G. one way to work ard it is to jb and trick ur ipad into believing its on wifi. another way is to go direct to youtube website and search video from there, quality is much better

What iTunes version are you using? I jailbroke using iTunes 9.2 and Spirit, and I can't get 3G unrestrictor to enable high quality YouTube videos leh.

Use m.youtube.com instead to view the videos. All the videos are HQ regardless of connection.

Yup I did.

I read Troubleshooting in 3G Unrestrictor, and they said that it could be caused by an unofficial jailbreak.

I jailbroke using Spirit and iTunes 9.2, so not sure if that caused something to go wrong. =\

EDIT: I installed Winterboard, the iPad rebooted, and it works now.
