For apps that don't support two-factor authentication, such as iMovie, you need to generate an application-specific password. This is a computer generated password that can be used to give an app access to Google services, but is intended for use in a single app. Go here to manage your connected apps and application-specific passwords. Once you generate one ...

Yes, most YouTube videos are also available as HTML5 videos. You need to sign in to YouTube and join the HTML5 trial -- see http://www.youtube.com/html5 for details.

There should be a preference thing on YouTube to select HTML5, but they've reorganized the page so many times since I last tracked it down that I have no idea where it is now. Instead, I have ClickToFlash installed (it's under "Most Popular" in the Safari Extensions Gallery); open its preferences (Safari Preferences... > Extensions) and you can tell it to ...

With business class cable (10 to 30 Mb/s), even HD videos are basically instant on and play through completely. It's more a matter of selecting a smaller stream size by picking your web site or setting a preference if you can't getting a wider pipe to the internet. Latency isn't a big issue with streaming video - lots and lots of bandwidth is the major ...

Start the YouTube app on the iPhone Select ".../More" at the bottom right Select "Sign out" at the top left

There is no way you could do that, I have that problem also. You could try to send YouTube a feature request, but I won't think they will do that as Google now owns YouTube and Google and Apple aren't exactly the best friends... But you coud try :)

The fullscreen YouTube uses of its website, is not a "real fullscreen" feature. It just maximize the size of the video to the size of the webcontent. So unlike Vimeo (for example) you won't get a real fullscreen without YouTube updating it's webplayer (or you using the YouTube app) .

If you are updating from devices directly, you can only pull the most recent version of the app. In a slight change from the past, if the most recent version is not compatible with your device, it will now offer to let you download the most recent compatible version instead. If you use iTunes on a Mac to download copies of your apps into your library, or ...

The Swift Player app should be able to accomplish what you need, but it is $3.99, so that might not be an option.

No, even though you're only listening to the audio, the video will continue to be streamed to the device.

Yes! You only need to enter from safari and not from the app. You choose the song you want to listen to, press the home button, swipe up to multitask and press play!

You could use a different app for playing Youtube videos, which don't stop playing when you press the home button. YStream/Ystream2 is an example of such an application (amongst others). As far as I know there is no way to prevent the built in Youtube app from stopping playback when the app is "minimized". These are the ways I know of for resuming playback: ...

This is my latest method for MOV files. Maybe late in the day for some but anyone else landing here might find my solution handy. iPad2 via USB to Windows XP. Get yourself QuickTime installed on the Windows PC. My version 7 allows for Save As... Maybe you need Pro for that Save As feature. Plug the iPad's usb into the PC. If itunes opens up on the PC - kill ...

As the link you posted has several Pre-event streams scheduled, you can try things out before hand. I haven't seen a public announcement by either Google or Apple saying to tune in on your Apple TV, so you might plan on a second manner of streaming. I'll likely use AirPlay mirroring to get the content onto my large screen via Apple TV.

I had the same problem. Since I have signed up for 2-step verification I must use not my YouTube psw, but a application-specific password. You can generate an application-specific password on your Authorizing applications and sites page using a desktop.  http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=no&answer=184968  Remember to use your email ...

There's an iOS app called Photo Transfer App that should do exactly as you want. Transferring from iPad to Windows. Not sure I know the answer to why YouTube isn't taking it.

You will get lots of answers since basically two things are conspiring to prevent you from grabbing the file. The first is the iOS file size limit uploading to youtube. I don't have a hard limit, but it's been known for a while that past 5 minutes on most iOS devices, either the youtube API or the software declines to transfer a movie as a direct upload. ...

Slide to the right to bring up background audio controls. The icon on the ...

Video Downloader Pro Lite is the app you're looking for. To begin a download: Browse on the web. Select any video on any website, Click download. It works pretty well for me!

Hold Option while you double click on the file to force it to download instead of play. If you have something downloading already (or are using an older version of Safari), you can also copy from the activity window and paste into the downloads window.
