    Hi Guys... first post!

    I upgraded to the new 3.0 OS late last week and I'm sure I have been on YouTube since but now it will not connect now. I have tried this on two separate Wi-Fi networks.

    If I log into YouTube via Safari - I still cannot view videos... are there any obvious settings I could have disabled etc?

    Your help is appreciated.

    Regards

    Jon

    Nope

    Syncing does nothing for me. I also tried restoring (both from a back up and creating a new setup), and switching the date back and forth between 2009 and 2031.

    YouTube isn't working in Safari, either.

    Nobody has any answers at the Apple support boards, MacRumors or macosxhints -- so please tell me (or not, either way I can get the message): am I wasting my time asking here, too, instead of taking it in to an Apple Store and possibly getting a new one?

    YouTube isn't supposed to work in Safari, unless you have a plugin for it.

    Actually if you go to YouTube in Safari it opens the YouTube mobile website and then viewing a video opens the YouTube app as normal.

    I'm having buffering problems with YT and OS 3.0 myself, same with iPlayer.
