    Hi, im new to the forum as you mighta guessed but ive always been redirected to this site via google when i have an issue with my ipod

    Please Register or Log in to view images


    Anyway my problem is that when i am round my friends house i am able to play videos via wifi on my iPod without hassle, but when im back at my house i cannot play any videos via wifi? I dont understand why, and whne i say videos im talking about the ones you can actually play normally such as youtube and bbc iplayer. When im at my house and i go to play it, it says loading for a while then a popup saying "this movie could not be played" and i cant view any videos.

    Any help would be appreciated because its rather frustrating as i like to catch up on the bbc iplayer in bed.
    if its any use..:
    iPod touch 3g
    latest software
    NOT jailbroken.

    I cant find anything related to this problem within this forum or even on google.
    Thanks!

    hmm...it may be your wifi connection?? ive found at times when the iphone cant stream at a high enough kbps rate it tells me that the movie format is not supported (when im downloading lots at the same time in particular) but thats just me.

    i found that when i stopped downloading uber amounts of files that it started working, so you may want to try ways of expanding the speed of your connection im not sure

    Something might be wrong with your router at home. Call a technician man.
