    I have noticed that YouTube has sucked since 3.0.
    I used to be able to load a 10 minute video in about 30 seconds but now i can load a 30 second video in about 30 seconds. I know it's not my router because I can't laid videos on any router, I have two and I have tried my iPod on both. And we have like 4 different routers at school and i get the same results.
    I can browse the Internet and use any thin that requires wifi perfectly, all but YouTube.
    Anyone else have this issue?

    My brother has the 2nd gen iPod touch, before he updated to 3.0, (which means he was on 2.1) he could load YouTube vids pretty fast, no waiting at all. When he upgraded to 3.0, he told me he noticed YouTube vids loads slower.

    I have a 3rd gen iPod touch, when I load YouTube vids, I have to wait for a couple of seconds for it to play normally without buffering. Experiencing from my brother's iPod touch in 2.1, that was faster. So my conclusion is that 3.0 slowed down YouTube. (And maybe other features/Apps of the iPod touch as well, but I cannot commet on that.)

    3.0 introduces a new feature that detects what type of network you're on and adjusts settings accordingly.

    You can't downgrade if you're using a 3G (as it says in your iPod description). 3.1.1 is the lowest possible firmware.

    I hope they make a fix for it because I hate not being able to watch YouTube.
