I have noticed that I can not play YouTube videos posted in this forum from my iPad. I can play them from other places such as Facebook.
In this forum I see the picture and the play arrow in the middle but it reacts like a fixed graphic.
They play from my iPhone 4S with the latest iOS just fine
This a third generation iPad with the latest iOS.

I just checked again and went to 2different postings. One is titled "don't be mundane". The other is "hurricane sandy 2012". Both appear to have YouTube video postings neither will play for me on my iPad. Both play on my iPhone 4S.
- Hope they can get this working.

The hurricane sandy post did have a text link that did take me to the video on the YouTube page.

You tube is always a good and best online vidoe portal and can get the best from there.

Any update on getting YouTube links on this forum to work on the IPad

I've seen this issue before, but I can't replicate it today on my iPad. Do you have a link to a specific forum topic that isn't working?

I'm not at home where my ipad is but if you look at any of the color correction posts that are you tube. None of those will play for me. If I touch the play arrow in the lower left corner the word play comes up above it but nothing will happen.
Funny thing is they play on my iPhone.
Someone had a Vimeo video posted and it played fine on my iPad.

Those are the videos I tested on my iPad and they worked fine. I also checked "Don't Be Mundane" and "Hurricane Sandy 2012" and tey worked as well.
Are you running the most recent version of iOS? Apple gave the boot to the official YouTube app with iOS 6, which may have something to do with it if you're still on iOS 5.

i think you will find this interesting. I got the email with your post. So I opened up the forum and searched on don't be mundane and it played. So I went to another post I knew that had not worked and it played. While I was there I realized it said to comment log in. After I logged into the forum I couldn't play the YouTube video.
FYI I am running IOS 6.0.1. On the Latest IPad

Just wondering if there was any update on this issue. YouTube still plays as long as I am not logged into Video Maker

Connect your iPad to the Internet. Turn on Wi-Fi by selecting "Settings," selecting "Wi-Fi" and turning Wi-Fi on. Join a Wi-Fi- network by choosing "Settings," choosing "Wi-Fi," waiting for your iPad to detect the networks within range and choosing a network. Enter a password if necessary, and tap "Join." The Wi-Fi icon located in the status bar shows the strength of your connection.

Thanks but it has nothing to do with the problem since I have to be connected to post here.

Any update on the YouTube issue on IPad ? YouTube still only plays in the forum if I'm not logged in to the forum.
