    Hello, I was wondering if the youtube app will display all the youtube videos available or just some of them since I heard that the videos had to been encoded in H264 to e viewed?

    I haven't encountered any that wouldn't play, but that doesn't mean ones that won't play aren't out there. Most videos worth watching are available more than once, so finding one you can watch wouldn't be too hard.

    All new videos uploaded since they announced supporting H.264 video (the format the touch & Apple TV use) are already viewable on the touch. All old videos that were uploaded before then will need to be reencoded by Youtube, a looong process that they are currently doing now.

    I think we just need to wait a bit. i forgot where i read it but i believe they are still working on bringing the entire database to the youtube.app. so it probably takes longer for recently uploaded videos to come out on the ipot or iphone currently.

    nvm the guy above me who just posted probably has the closer answer

    i watch mostly the japanese version and it takes a couple of days(or more) to take down anime such as bleach and naruto so as long as somebody upload the videos the same or next day they come out ill be fine, lol but I like to watch english shows too.
