    This is ******** me off.

    Before upgrading to 2.1 it was find and loaded fast, now, it's slow as a tortoise and I'd just give ip trying to load it. FFS is there a patch or something via cydia I can get to fix this? Everything else is working fine like browsing sites, pics n such. Only movie filed r slow. I don't think it's anything with my router bcus I havnt touched it since I had 1.1.4.

    My 2.1 is jb'ed.

    i think its because you guys are jailbroken and some of your apps go on in the background or something

    MxTube

    if your ipod is jailbroken just use MxTube from Cydia (search for it)

    You can still stream videos from mxtube...AND you can save the videos directly to your ipod

    I've actually don't even use YouTube anymore because MxTube does everything youtube does...and more

    I've heard such complaints from people in other forums too.

    At first I was skeptical, but now I'm convinced.

    I'm currently on a JAILED 2.1 firmware iPhone 3G, and streaming videos off safari is indeed much slower than before, on my home wifi network. (No there is no problem with my network)

    I suggest more people try it out.

    I don't reckon it having anything to do with jailbreak.
