    I know the iPod Touch can go on youtube so I was wondering if it can go on other youtube-like sites such as:

    http://www.youku.com/
    http://www.tudou.com/

    I'd love to know because I was planning on getting an iPod Touch.

    For sites that host videos in the flash format, you can view many of them by signing up at videohamster.com from your iPod.

    It takes a movie and converts it so you can view it on your iPod or iPhone.

    As of now, there is no flash on the iPod touch/iPhone. Some services such as videohamster can convert it into a playable file, only sometimes though (if it has a javascript backup, I believe).
    I wouldn't rely on that.

    The only reason the iPod touch can browse Youtube videos, is because there is a seperate application for it, where all the videos are converted to an iPod-readable format.

    The websites you listed above aren't playable on the iPod touch, although it may be possible to convert the videos into iPod-readable format using a service such as VideoHamster.
