Can't watch some youtube videos

Hello,

Just got an ipad2 and watched some youtube movies, but I can't watch all.

For instance, on my laptop, I can find and search this one:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mQVljB7JGw

On my iPad, this can't be found - and if I send the link via e-mail, open it on my ipad, it says it can't open the video.

Why is this?

Then what's message you got?
I also can't watch it, as got this message:
"The uploader has not made this video available in your country.
Sorry about that."

And many other videos you also can't watch?
Well, try download them for offline watching by using tools like iFunia Free YouTube downloader, which batch download, and works well for me.

to NaOH:

Thank you for the heads up. I was curious,
but I guessed that YouTube wouldn't want
people downloading the content on their site.


And to the forum:

How do people watch videos (such as YouTube
provides)? On my machine (MacBook with
2.4 GHz Core2 Duo, 2GB of SDRAM, fairly
empty hard drive) the feed stutters and
jerks along. I just give up. My connection
to the internet is wireless to an Airport Extreme
(new in 2006) router, which in turn is
connected to the phone line (DSL).

Any help much appreciated.

That's distinct enough from the original post here that I would suggest starting a thread of your own. For one, that's policy of the forums, but it's also to your advantage as it will help others see the thread for the issue you're experiencing.
