I am wanting to buy the rumored 3rg gen touch and was wondering if the Apple Component AV Cable will take the output of a youtube video played on the ipod touch and put it on the screen of the tv.

Any help finding out would be appreciated

should work fine. those cables are meant to output the ipod screen itself onto to the tv so whether that is music, videos or youtube, it will show up on the tv...

Do whatever you want to do man.

So far I have only seen one video on youtube that did this and I wasn't able to tell if it was jail broken. They are only made to output music, videos or podcasts not what is on the screen so i don't know

I haven't tried with an iPod Touch, but I did try outputting TV shows with my iPhone 3G.

The quality was not sufficient for my 40 inch 1080p LCD.  It looked terrible.

I'd recommend buying the cable from Dick Smith and trying it out.  They're great about "changed my mind" products.  As long as they can resell it, they'll exchange ANYTHING.

Maybe i will get the composite on then as it will output a lower quality output and look better upsized from what i have heard. Will apple take it back if i buy it online.

I will be using it on a 32inch tv and quality is not that important as long as it is watchable
