    Youtube on the Iphone..are your videos blurry or clear?

    Hey guys! well i just wanted to see from yall what yall see when yall watch a video on youtube. I know when I first got my phone, the videos I would look at on youtube were BLURRY. The next day after having my phone I went back and watched the same video and it was clear as day! now, a week later I have tried the same video ever since and I have not seen it clear since that day. I was wondering if yall have seen this? or if yalls videos are clear all the time? or if they are blurry all the time? and what is normal..... Any info would be great!

    Thanks.

    Edge is slow so the video will be blurry a little if you go on WiFi it will be clear couse its faster. Test it out you might of been on WiFi when the video was clear..

    It appears that Apple actually did a great job with the YouTube application. Normally EDGE speed would not allow you to stream a YouTube video without waiting about 5 minutes for it to buffer. So instead of that, the application appears to adjust the quality depending on your connection speed. So whether you are on EDGE or using Wi-Fi, you will still be able to watch videos and not have to wait forever for it to buffer. It will simply not be as good quality, but certainly will be watchable.

    When you're on the EDGE network, the videos are lower quality.....when on Wi-Fi, they're much better. At least, that's my observation.

    The lower quality is probably so they stream faster when on EDGE.

    Say they put 3G on the iPhone. Do you think the videos will be clearer while not connect to wifi?

    As long as you have 3 or 4 bars, yeah. But like EDGE it will probably slow way down with poor reception.

    Very blurry on EDGE, even with 4 bars. Crystal clear on Wi-Fi. I watched about ten vids last night on the couch using my home Wi-Fi. That screen is just awesome.
