Youtube is really slow on my iPad
I got a 64 gig Wifi only version on release date. I love the iPad.
But I try to watch youtube videos on it, but everything takes forever to load, I even go to my university's wifi to try to watch videos, despite the fact that the internet over there is amazing, videos still take forever to load.
Is it because the youtube app automatically tries to steam at 720p or what?
Any answers to this problem?

It works fine on mine. Every thing loads instantly.
The picture leaves alot to be desired when you make it full screen, though.
I'm not sure whats causing your issues, just wanted you to know it doesn't effect everyone. Perhaps go into the Genius Bar and have them take a look at it?

I am french, living In France and I am having The same troubles. Videos starts then stops. On my ipad but also on my iPhone 3GS with the wifi. With 3G, it works but the video's quality is not the same. I am thinking (and hoping) that it could come from YouTube servers. As you are, I am ont having trouble watching vidéos on apple's web page or french vidéo site.
Hope somebody Will find an answer...

I called AT&T (my Internet provider) and asked about my Internet speed and they had me on the slowest speed when I asked for the fastest available. They fixed the problem and I tried YouTube and it loads fast now. Hopefully it continues to do the same only time will tell.

At home, I have optimal fibre and n wifi. 8+ mbps on my iPad.... But it freeze! And it works fine with my old unbundled ADSL that I still have for a few days...
I beleive it is a question of router but as Brian says it could also be a question of speed...
I also hope that Apple will come with an update!

I may have found a solution. I changed my provider DNS by statics DNS from opendns.com
Don't need to pay. Just register for a free account. I am not even sure you need an account...
Here are the DNS : 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199
Tell me if it works for you!

Not that it's much help, but I just wanted to chime in to say that I've been having this same issue. I've especially noticed it while loading in-line youtube videos through Safari, but I've seen it on the app as well. Really frustrating, there's no reason these videos should be loading so slowly.

Not directly related but...
I have noticed that my 3G connection seems slower, these days. I can't help wondering if AT&T is doing a bit of throttling - particularly to those of us who are grandfathered into the unlimited plan.
