    So before my iOS 6 update (downgrade) my ipad worked seamlessly and ALL YouTube vids would play with no problems,,,,,,right after installing IOS 6 things are much different,,,,,,, I'm lucky if 10% of the YouTube video's I select will play now.

    Sometimes I get the red strip across the black box were the video is suppose to be saying " I need to install flash",,,,,,, but most of the time I see the still frame of the video I have selected but it won't play.

    For the last week I have been reading and reading and reading online tring to find a fix,,,, yes, I have read about doing a reset, deleting cookies, resetting Safari.

    I have installed the Google YouTube app,,,, I have done the mobile app,,,,,,,,, NOTHING WORKS,,,,,,, iOS 6 has turned my ipad into a paperweight.

    I joined this forum just to try and find a fix as I have exhausted every idea.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Cheers

    I use the YouTube client called Jasmine. I absolutely love it. I recommend giving it a shot.

    Hey Brad,,,,, thanks for the assistance,,,,, I downloaded Jasmine and it seems to be working so far,,,, not really crazy about the user interface but at least the vids seem to all be playing,,,,,, thanks again Brad.

    On a side note,,,,, I think I am going to get a Nexus 10 this week,,,, the recent choices by Apple have soured my feelings toward their products,,, I just sold my iphone 5 and got the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S3 and so far I'm not missing Apple too much in the phone department,,,,, the tablet switch is next,,,, I've been a die hard Apple fan since day one, but no more.

    Well it seems you are unloading ALL Apple products because of You Tube just cause you are having trouble at least it seems and since you have already left IOS and gone to Samsung, We wish you luck and sorry to see you leave. Android Central will serve you well.

    Try removing the Youtube app and re-installing and see if that helps. Make sure you also restart the iPad.
