    I have been having some serious problems with Youtube app ever since I bought my iPod touch 3 months ago. I was hoping 2.1 would fix it but it seems that it hasn't.
    I have an adsl2+ connection and youtube works fine on my sister’s laptop using wireless and my desktop computer also works fine I have even tried 2 different routers but still nothing. I get about 4.5mbs net connection wirelessly to my iPod. So the only thing I could see is a server issue for mobile devices but as my friends works fine, I kinda ruled this out.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers,
    Lewie

    I discovered an reason of that :> iPod touch have not good WiFi receiver and get many packets errors on high transfer modes (52MBit) . Try to reduce WiFi's TX Rate to speeds of your internet connection in your router, this may reduce WiFi range by result so watch-out :> this truly help me with DI-624 Router

    Not sure if the following is true or not for standard model routers but with my Linksys (w/ ddr-t mod.) I can set the TX speed specifically for the Ipod.

    Thanks for the tip Shadow.
