My iPad won't play YouTube videos.

I order to solve the problem I have tried:

  • Turning the iPad off and back on.
  • Refreshing the YouTube webpage in the browser.
  • Open the webpage in a new browser tab.

None of these actions have solved the problem.

What else can I do to get the YouTube videos to play?

  • What browser are you using? Does this happen with all videos? Are you able to play videos through a YouTube app?

  • I've inferred that you're using Safari, but feel free to edit your question to clarify.

  • The YouTube app won't even download and trying the HTML5 player
