    Hi,

    Im considering purchaing an Ipod Touch however I have some thoughts about the Zune HD as well.

    Currently I lean towards the Ipod for a few reasons one major point is the Touches ability to play "Youtube"videos however I have read something about touch doesnt play flash videos.

    Now my question is I spend a lot of time at you tube watching all sorts of video can some here help me understand what I can expect regarding my ability to view ...all..partial or no Youtube video if I indeed purchase a Ipod Touch 3rd generation.

    Thanks for you help & knowledge

    Although the youtube app is a great feature, From my experiences with it is that it only loads the video partially.
    Sometimes the whole video but not often.

    My wifi is fast so I don't know what the problem is there.

    YouTube Videos are great. It loads full, I've never had a Video load partially. The only flaw I see in the YouTube function is that new videos take An hour or 2 to process, then you can watch the Video.

    The iPod Touch cannot watch Flash Videos, such as Vimeo, etc.

    It's another video site like YouTube. 1 or 2 hours from when the video was first posted to YouTube for the MP4 file to be made by YouTube. Not every time you want to watch a video.

    What you bought a iPod just for watching videos??? Wow, thats king of... Stupid... Anyway YouTube issnt the only site to watch videos, by my experience, i saw that Apple site's videos can be watched on the iPod, so id say to find other websites where u can watch videos is something u gotta do by urself

    The iPod touch cannot watch flash videos, but there is a YouTube app preinstalled on the iPod that lets you watch YouTube videos (in a non-Flash format). I have noticed that it does often take a long time for videos to load, but it is not unbearable.
