    Is there a way to change the quality of videos in youtube? They always play in the highest quality possible, and this is my problem. Videos take annoying long to load and i find myself ditching my ipad to watch them on my actual computer where i dont have to wait for the video to load in high quality.

    Is there any way to change the resolution of the videos on the ipad youtube app?

    If you have the 3G version, and you use 3G instead of Wifi, you automatically get downgraded YouTube quality. I'm assuming you don't have 3G? I hope someone else knows how to manually set this, because I'm curious too.

    Yep. Use the website. Safari on 4.2 no longer redirects you to the app whenever you click a YouTube link, so I believe the website is the way to go.

    Yeah the mobile website lets you select HQ or Standard quality and is better in features and speed then the app anyways.
