    It seems that any video that I view on my iPad on youtube always seems to crash. It leaves my iPad frozen which forces me to hard-reset it and it then gives me the "Big iPod touch" mode. It's really bugging me how I can't sit through an eight minute long video without the iPad freezing over. I've done restores and everything but it doesn't work! Help?

    That is definitely not normal, I've been able to watch dozens of videos (long ones) on my iPad without any problems whatsoever.

    Are you jailbroken?

    Yes, and this has been happening everytime I jailbreak. I honestly don't know why this is happening..

    So you mean that when you aren't jailbroken, the problem doesn't happen? You can use the YouTube app normally?

    I never gave a chance of using it while non jailbroken. What really puzzles me is that I tried using MxTube and I downloaded the video. It still crashes.

    I'm jailbroken and I just finished watching about an hour or two of youtube on it. I don't know if that helps, but it would seem it is just your youtube app that seems to be glitchy [unless a reader has the same issue and hasn't posted yet].

    There was another topic about the same problem. What bugs me is that downloaded MxTube videos do the samething.

    It's unstable for me too! I'm not sure why it does this, but whenever I watch a video, it'll freeze a few minutes into it

    Seriously, this is crazy. I can't go through a couple of videos without the iPad locking up. Any fixes?

    Try the New Youtube mobile web app. I don't have an iPad so i don't know if youtube mobile works on it, but just a suggestion.
