How To Open Mms Links In Safari?
I have an iPad 3 and I'm trying to figure out how to get Safari to open an mms:// link. It's basically for an online radio streaming site that in Windows will open up Windows Media Player to stream the audio. I know iPad obviously doesn't have WMP, but does this mean there is no equivalent of WMP on iPad 3 that can play the stream? At the moment, when I try to open the streaming link (mms://......) in Safari, it tells me that it "Cannot Open Page - Safari cannot open the page because the address is invalid".

Can't Open YouTube Links
having a problem opening links to YouTube in wabpages. All it does is open up a new identical webpage with the same link. I could do it any number of times but doesn't make a difference. Whether it goes to the iPad YouTube app or stays in the webpage mode to play is secondary but I just can't get any luck at all to view these videos.

Why Does Safari Only Open Links In Foreground?
Safari in a search engine is nearly worthless. Links open in new windows that come into the foreground. An option to open new window in background would be good; even better: tabs in iPad Safari.

Its Screen Became Unresponsive And Open Links By Itself
My iPad open links by itself, it writes e-mail texts, it opens applications while I do not even touch the screen. I thought it was because of WiFi but I see that even when I turn off the wifi it is the same. It can be because if the touch, during this ipad "performance" it is unresponsive, I try to touch and close the app or link but it does not work.

Safari Can't Queue Links Or Open Them In Background
Has anyone found a workaround for Safari's lack of an "Open in Background" option? I assume Apple left that feature off since the iPad is a little light on RAM (presumably for cost and power consumption considerations), and can't preload too many pages simultaneously.

But a way to queue up links would be useful. As is, if I want to finish browsing a page before going to other linked pages, I need to:

1 Tap-and-hold a link
2 Choose "Open in New Page"
3 Wait a second for the new page to start loading
4 Tap the window manager
5 Tap the original page
6 If the original page has a lot of content, wait for it to reload
7 Repeat steps 1-6 for each link

Step 6 is the most inconvenient: large pages with lots of images take a while to load and almost always need to reload even if only one other window has been opened.

I'm surprised there isn't an "Add to Queue" option in Safari's tap-and-hold context menu (with the "Queued" folder available through the bookmarks button).

IPad 2 :: Email Doesnt Open Links
I cannot open any external links in my email app for some reason. it seems that the email adds the letter "o" at the beginning of every URL, making it invalid.

I really don't know why it does that. here's a screenshot: http:(url)notice the letter "o" at the beginning of the URL. this happens with any link I try to open.

Features Links/skortcut Links For Several Commands?
Is there a thread here for cool features/tricks/functionalities people have discovered with their ipads?

For instance, I just found that if you press and hold the dash key on the keyboard, you get the option for an em dash or a bullet for making bullet lists. If you press and hold the "e" you can add French accents.

Windows Links In Safari Tabs - Page Has Links To Windows And Hotmail Embedded In The Top
I'm a fairly new iPad2 owner and I'm really enjoying getting to grips with the device. I have successfully updated to ios5 and everything has been functioning well with no issues.

Something strange started happening yesterday, when I open a new tab in safari the new page has links to windows and hotmail embedded in the top. I'm not sure how it has happened, it doesn't seem to have any effect on browsing but I'm a bit concerned as it doesn't seem right.

No Executable Links In 'Contacts'?
When I did the initial sync with my PC, the stock iPad Contacts app downloaded the info from Outlook and at first glance all was well; however I had a large number of links in notes beneath some contact entries that were executable in Outlook, and these links are not executable on the iPad. They do not appear in the usual blue underlined text.

It's a total PITA to have to fiddle around with that stupid magnifying glass gizmo and the blue 'copy' box to select/copy the text of the link, close Contacts, open Safari, paste the text into the Safari address box and then finally execute, instead of just being able to execute straight from Contacts with a single click.

Just as annoying, in Outlook all these links were embedded in text to save clutter, and now the full hyperlink appears, resulting in mess of text which is nothing like as clear to navigate.

Any ideas/solutions?

Returning To E-mail From Web Links
Is there a way to directly return to the e-mail app after viewing a web link contained in an e-mail? Once the browser is opened it seems like you have to re-open the e-mail app, unless I'm missing something obvious (which I hope I am!).

Wi-fi Router Links To MAC Book
I can only get the airport symbol up if the Cellular Data is turned off, and even then I can't access the internet even though the wifi is showing as connected and 2 bars - I am within 4 feet of the router. When I turn the carrier on again, although the wifi is apparently connected (settings), the airport symbol disappears. What can I try now? Without the 3g I would have no internet access at all. Macbook links to router no problems.

Links Not Opening In Safari IOS 5 GM?
Im running iOS 5 GM and clicking on links inside of posts opens a new tab but nothing comes on the screen. Oddly clicking on posts in any board works fine, just clicking on a link inside a post, like a link to an article or a YouTube video. Copying the link and pasting it into the address bar takes me to the site as expected.

YouTube Links In Email Won't Play
My wife took her brand new iPad on a trip this week. While she was away I emailed her links to some YouTube videos of the kids I had uploaded. The videos play with no problem when we click the link in her email on a "regular" computer, but clicking the link through the iPad's Mail program results in a "YouTube Not Available" message.

Youtube Embedded Links In Emails
I am having trouble with embedded links in emails that should fire up a youtube video. Works fine on computers (windows) does not work at all on iphone 4 or iPad. Starts up Safari but page just stays black. No error message or anything. The youtube app works fine and I can actually search and find the video on the app but can't get there from the embedded link. Is this just a problem of the embedded link being a flash version of the video or is something else going on?

YouTube Downloading Links Are Required
I was just wondering if anyone knows a way to download YouTube videos on an iPad.*I've been using an app called MiTube for a long time now, I've found it to be very useful, when I need to watch a clip for a meeting but know I won't be near wifi,or even when I just want to avoid buffering.*The app was pulled from the app store, so it is no longer being updated. It seems a week ago, YouTube changed things a little, rendering the app useless.*

I know I can jailbreak my iPad and install MxTube or something, but I really don't wantto jailbreak. Is there any way to do this with apps in the app store?

I use an app called Filer to save and organise files, the help file for it hints at the ability to download YouTube videos, it mentions that it can't do it, however there are ways (bookmarklets etc) to get a download link. Theoretically once I get a download link I can download away.

I tried a few services which give YouTube download links, but the ones I found need java, so I can't use them on my iPad.

Copying Links From Twitter To Email?
I have just tried to copy a link from the native twitter app using the 'copy link' button which appears at the bottom of an open page when you open a hyperlink direct from a tweet, my iPad does copy the link but I cannot then paste it into the body of an email, I can however paste it into the subject line. I am using the normal mail app. why is this and is there a way around it other than opening the link in safari, copying the link and pasting again.

Interactive .pdf With Sound, Links With Actions, URLs?
I looked in the discussions here and couldn't find anything addressing this. I am looking for an App (if they make one) that supports many of the interactive tools in a .pdf when creating it in Acrobat. (I do not need markup ability, annotations or editable fields).

I currently have PDFReader Pro and GoodReader on my iPad, using DropBox to transfer files - both Apps discard any interactivity that I have built in the .pdf (zoom links, URLs, clickable sounds, page advancing) and merely allow it only to be viewed, read and scrolled.

We are looking to create a way to present material to a viewer where they can read, listen and view material at their own pace, but in a portable fashion (which is why we are experimenting with the iPad)

Safari On Not Saving History Of Links Clicked
I am having a problem with safari on the iPad.

All of my link history isn't being saved. For example, i will open linked on this board, exist safari, and return with it appearing that i never clicked them. Moreover, if i turn off the iPad, all of my history seems to reset. Now, logins and passwords seem to stick, so while i don't have to have to keep logging in to sites, i have to remember what i clicked so i don't keep reentering threads.

I tried doing a hard reset, and resetting the history, cache, and cookies from the settings app. None of this seemed to work. Is anyone els having these problems? Any suggestions on how to fix it? Thanks.

Google Search Results Links Hijacked?
I'm trying to understand a new problem I have run into with my iPad. Recent google searches have not been able to direct me to the link given by google. Almost all results are redirected once they are clicked on. I would understand if these were some of the smaller less reputible websites but this is happening with pages like Cnet. Has anyone else run into these problems?
