I can't get any videos to play nonstop. They go for a second and then it's paused and I have to hit play again....over and over again so what is the point? I have wifi but it stays on EDGE even though the wifi once worked on it. What is the deal?

Sounds like you need to make sure you're close enough to your wifi device or either reset the phone.

Sometimes if the name of the WIFI network is the same as another network you use it will cause a conflict and the device will lose the original WIFI WEP key. Make sure this isn't your problem. For instance most people leave their Linksys WIFI named "linksys" by default. When you go to a buddy's house and he's got the same network name and you enter his WEP encryption key, it causes a conflict.

You might need to change the WIFI network name and then re-enter your WEP key in your phone.

Why not just wait until more of the video is loaded before playing it? Obviously, the clip isn't downloading as fast as you're trying to play it.

Make sure you are I range of your wifi connection . And make sure your phone is connected. If all is well and still no connection reset the network connection your iPhone. Go to general-->reset-->reset network connections and the reconnect to your wifi.

It's definitely all loaded...or appears to be.

I'm in my house when I have tried and the network name is unique. Resetting it doesn't help (I've tried for my other problems). It must be in connection with the wifi issues/EDGE taking over problems that I'm having. thanks.

oops, I misread, I hadn't tried resetting the network connections (just the phone). Thanks. I'll try that.

How much different is the iPhone's youtube vs. the regular youtube? Also, if there's a flash plugin update, would that mean that you can view the regular youtube on the iPhone?

Yes, its normal. EDGE is much slower, so instead of waiting for 5 minutes for a movie to download on EDGE, the videos will be heavily compressed.

I still would like an option to download the higher quality version though.

It's based on connection speed. IF downloaded over the edge network, the resolution is degraded to increase download speed. Over Wifi, it should be crystal clear. (that is, if the original video is crystal clear.)

You should have a choice on the quality of the video. I don't like that the iPhone decides for me how long I should wait to watch a clip. If I wanted a crappy clip I would have requested it. Or, if I want to wait forever, that's my problem.

Sorry, but it does that so you do not have wait a long time to stream in the download.

yes, I know that but I would have liked the option, say, a tiered system where you can choose the bitrate. Not a huge deal for me anyway.
