I have a 16 gb iPhone 3g. I have broadband internet and a Linksys router. I can stream You Tube videos on my laptop. On my iPhone, the videos download brutally slow, often stopping completely at 1/4. I get similar numbers when running a download test on either the laptop or the iPhone. This is over a wifi link. :oops:

I think the picture on my YouTube videos is crappy considering the way a movie looks on my iPhone

Mine is fine even when not connected to any Wi-Fi :S
The video quality is poor but the sound is good =]

You have to remember that you're using a mobile device and not a full fledged computer. YouTube is always going to look better on a computer. Also, YouTube is compressed more on the mobile network versus wifi.
