    My goodness the YouTube app sucks. The video quality is horrible, the sound is even worse. Some times videos don't even load, I have to select it two or three times. QuickTime videos looks great, actually showing off the iPhone's great resolution. I'm embarassed to show anybody a YouTube clip

    It has nothing to do with the YouTube app rather than the data cap (meaning AT&T does not allow YouTube to suck all the bandwidth creating that blocky look in the videos) AT&T or other carriers may restrict. If you are on Wi-Fi the videos in YouTube look fine.

    i find it kind of odd that if i'm playing vids on youtube just using Safari, certain vids will give me an error like.. "this movie is not supported"
    so i back out and go back into it and it plays just fine.
    anyone else seen this???

    If you are jailbroken you can get 3g Unrestrictor and watch You Tube vids over 3g like it was wifi.

    Never said it wasn't. But it was not needed regardless...

    I didn't know anyone even used the YouTube app. I used to use a lot of gimmicky stuff with my phone, but now I use it almost exclusively for productivity of one sort or another. It's good, I guess, that when the gimmicks get old you can fall back on the fact that the iPhone is actually a really competent business/educational tool.

    Yeah, I had a LG shine that went on youtube and i think it looked better on that little phone. Maybe because the phone was smaller.

    The youtube app needs an entire overhaul. It's slow, and videos don't load like you said.

    I tried to watch a couple of videos that I posted from my desktop, but the iPhone doesn't seem to support them. Is it because they were 3gp files originally?

    I use the YouTube app all the time bi am amazed at the video. However, I usually have a wifi connection. Videos come in crystal clear for the most part.

    Wait till you view a YouTube video on 3G or EDGE.... you'll be very dissappointed. They end up coming out really blurry.
