YouTube on 3G sucks but what I come to notice is that the loading is very fast and reaches to the end quickly. Now since it has finished loading the video it is still being played and got me wondering that within the time the loading finished why can't they up the quality to have it be close to the moving ball instead of surpassing it by so much?I have a few apps and websites I tried that keeps a great quality on 3G without having to wait on the loading.
I did a search and found a post from June so I apologize if it has been recently discussed. If I watch a video from youtube app with wifi it takes longer to load then with 3G but it is high quality where as the 3G quality is very poor. It is almost unwatchable on 3G. Why is that and can you change a setting or something to improve the quality over 3G?
Ok, so my iPad's youtube works. But, the quality is really bad. I know it's supposed to play in HD, so I tried playing videos that I know are in HD, and I still get bad quality. How do I fix this? And whenever I go to see my subscriptions, it constantly says "Youtube not available", even though my wi-fi and my service is working. Can someone help me?
Unable To See Videos In HD / Youtube Quality Over 3G
Jun 3, 2010
Is there any way to stream regular quality videos on youtube over the 3G connection instead of the godawful reduced quality videos? Im guessing this is to compensate for the slower connection, but im getting 2mb/s on my 3G connection, which is capable of loading higher quality videos without too much hiccups (my wifi speed is 3mb/s, btw).
For whatever reason, YouTube videos don't look quite as sharp as they should on my iPad (and iPhone). When watching a YouTube video on my iMac, the 1080 resolution really shines. But on my iPad, the same video comes across on the same network with slight grainy-ness. I wish there was a way for you set what resolution to play videos at like you're able to on a computer.
I tried to take a video of the kids playing in the family room (using the camera on the iPad), not too bright, not too dark. The first thing I noticed was that when pointing the camera at my subjects they looked very close-up and extremely grainy and out of focus. I can't find anywhere to pinch out with the screen to make it not so close up and no way to adjust the quality. It looks horrible.
I am planning on buying a iPad2 16GB or iPad 3 16/32GB. The main thing I will be using it for is to watch mainly DVD quality video. Is there any difference in watching this kind of quality video on the iPad2 compared to the iPad3? I would have thought that there wouldnt be but I just want to make sure before I buy one!
