I have one year old iPod Touch. All of a sudden YouTube is not working. I have wireless network at home.

It says "Cannot connect to YouTube". I'm also facing this issue when I connect to Gmail. it says - "Cannot connect to imap...". but still I can see my mail.

I guess it shouldn't be issues with wireless or n/w connectivity because Safari browsing is working fine.

  • @HanuAthena I tried to change the title to better reflect the nature of the issue (I'm not sure I have though...). It is generally a good idea to be fairly specific with the title.

I had a similar issue for a few weeks. I found that the problem was with my firewall. Even though I had told the firewall to allow all traffic to and from my ipod, it still didn't work because the firewall slowed down the internet tremendously.


I always suggest Resetting Network Settings first for connectivity issues. Settings >> General >> Reset >> Reset Network Settings. Then connect to your network again. If that doesn't work, post back here.


My first suggestion on any problem with technical devices is to shut down properly and restart the device. To shut down, hold down the sleep/wake button for a few seconds until the iPod asks you if you want to shut down.
