When I run the YouTube app on my iPhone 3G, I don't seem to get a very good stream?

I'm using WiFi, load the app, pick a title, when it grabs it, the downloading bar pretty much doesn't move at all.
Sometimes on a smaller file, like 59 secs , it moves about 2mm on the D/L bar and then sits there.
If I play the file, it plays for about 5 secs if I'm lucky and stalls, then stutters and doesn't run very well or not at all.

No better on 3g either.

If I try to surf the web using the same WiFi connection, it surfs fast as.


Any ideas?

Yes there is already a thread on this very topic.
Have a look for it in this forum.
I dont think anybody came out with a definitive answer either

Try MXTube - a great third party app available on Cydia/Installer on jailbroken iPhones. Lets you download in hi/lo or stream in hi/lo 

Highly recommended one of my fav apps over the past year.

a) the web browser on mac/pc may be loading a lower quality flv file with smaller file size.  iPhone does not have flash therefore must download larger mp4
a) the iPhone wifi connection is not performing as well as your mac/pc

I got home from work tonight and found an amazing discovery.I was playing with You tube on my Iphone and I found out that they were downloading with no lag whatsoever. Whereas before it was so slow. faster on the 3 G netowrk away from home.I then checked my general internet connection-WOW down load speeds dramatically increasedWe are with Ihug/Vodafone. Before were were lucky to get 1.5 mbit/sec tonight .We were averaging well ovr 2 mbit/sec and even 3 to London????So it seems something has improved on our broadband connection to notice the big improvement
