I have a query regarding playing you tube videos in iOS devices (like iphone,ipad).I can able to play youtube videos in safari browser in iphone on 3G data connection but can not play the same video on WiFi.

I am facing the same issue in the youtube iOS application also. Is it possible to play youtube video on WiFi in iOS devices ? Please help me to fix this issue.

Please refer this stackoverflow question also for the same issue.

    Why wouldn't this be possible? I am doing it as we speak. When you say not playing do you mean it won't load. Probably a WiFi issue rather than an Apple issue.

    Are you using Wifi at home, or at school/work? If you're having the same problem in the app and the browser but only on Wifi, it sounds like your wifi provider is blocking youtube.

  • Thanks for your replay. I can able to play the youtube videos on android devices on the same WiFi but can not do so on iOS devices. My WiFi is working fine and open all websites even youtube also and got the youtube video playlist also but when I play the video the loading appears on device continuously. I think the are some terms and conditon issue to play youtube videos in ios devices. Same issue on ipad also. Do you able to play youtube videos in safari in iOS devices on WiFi ?

Yes it is possible. I am doing it as I write this answer. There shouldn't be an T&C issue as I know it, just check whether your WiFi is properly connected and has enough bandwidth to stream video. Also you can cross check this by streaming something else through one other application.
