    How come the searching isn't the same from Touch as it is in You Tube? When I search the same phrase, on touch i get 2 items online I get about 9?

    Thanks

    because the youtube app on the touch/iphone does not utilize flash since it's not supported

    because of this, the touch can only play back youtube videos that are encoded in mp4. That's why only a small number of youtube videos come up on your searches

    Actually, YouTube is encoding now for .MP4 so it's not just people that uploaded .MP4 files... but there are a lot fewer encoded for .MP4...
