Youtube app doesn't work with 3G
« on: May 16, 2013, 12:33:33 AM »
what happens is the loading icon shows in the video screen but not next to my 3G icon in the status bar. as soon as i go back to wifi youtube videos will download. also browsing web 3g works fine.

Broken on my phone: GPS location. Youtube videos through 3G service; works with WIFI.

Is it possible they block video streaming with your carrier/plan?  Can you access youtube.com in Safari and watch videos that way?

nope it just loads and loads. i don't think it's a problem with my carrier blocking youtube, rather something wrong with the OS. it's been this way ever since i installed whited00r.

Try doing a hard reset (don't worry, it won't delete any data ;) ).  Hold the home/power buttons down at the same time until the device shuts down, and then turn it back on and try youtube again :)

I'm going to try the 3g unrestrictor ap. maybe the quicktime app which is loading youtube videos (not from youtube app but from browser) only works on wifi ?
oh no 
requires firmware >=4.0

Was it like this when you were on 3.1.3?  (Because 4.2.1 has more support for new javascript and stuff, which may explain the loading better).

So it likely isn't an issue with whited00r, but rather with 3.1.3 or possibly the way your carrier 'handles streaming data.

Hello, i found an alternative app for watching Youtube videos and it works very well. I found it from a user. The app that i'm talking about is MiniBrowser pro
If you want a Fast simple browser I would suggest Mini Browser or Mini browser pro its a simple fast browser and the latest version works fine on ios 3.1.3 it also plays youtube videos fine without lag.  ipa and appstore links: http://iapps-old.weebly.com
Just go to this link( http://iapps-old.weebly.com/downloads.html ) and you will find ios 3 compatible apps, there is the mini browser too. Just click on "download" and it will redirect you to a cracked version on AppStore, install and you can use it. You can watch easily Youtube videos in HQ and normal quality and works for all, in Safari you can watch only some of the videos because ios 3 don't have all video certs.
P.S. i was able to watch a google+ video on this browser too!!!
Hope i helped :)
