    thanx a lot people
    I was kind of thinking the same.
    I was happy for a moment that if flash is supported in youtube app maybe someone can build an app that allows flash content to be downloaded and played on the ipad if not streamed directly.

    Apple should not be let to do such injustice to all the other vendors.
    Most of the websites are heavily dependent on flash.

    The youtube app doesn't have Flash on it. That's why not all the videos work in the app. All the videos you watch on the YouTube app are in the h.264 codec and the iPhone OS supports that. So they're not being unfair, it's just they don't want to Flash to be a power whore like it always is...

    There's already a Youtube app for both the iPad and iPhone, so Youtube is accessible via that.

    Additionally, youtube (and probably most other video sites) are experimenting at transitioning into HTML5, which is a vastly superior format anyway. When that happens, the sites will work within the browsers of the iPad and iPhone without any apps being required.

    So short term solution is the apps, longterm is the fact that Flash is dying and the devices do actually support HTML5.
