Make sure you are connected to the internet. Go to Settings>General>Network>Enable Cellular data (for iPhone) For iPod Touch, make sure you are connected to an operational WiFi network. You can do this by just going to the Safari application for example and doing a google search to check and see if you have a usable connection. If these do not work, quit the running apps by double clicking the home button then holding down an icon at the bottom of the screen then exiting out of the apps one by one. If this does not work, restart your iPhone or iPod Touch (it is okay to restart because the jailbreak on iOS 4.2.1 is untethered, meaning you can turn off your device without having to re-jailbreak) Try to open youtube when the device turns back on. If this does not work, go to Safari and search "youtube mobile" and click on the first link. This will direct you to the browser version of YouTube. Once on that page, tap the + button at the bottom to add this page/link to your home screen. It will function like the regular YouTube app, and in my opinion, its faster.

How do I download from utube on my 3gs iphone?


If your iphone is not currently jailbroken, then I am afraid to say that it is not possible. If your phone is jailbroken, go to cydia, add the ihacks repo, then install yourtube 2, it is a built in youtube video downloader for your youtube app.

Iphone 2g. Had cannot connect to you tube message and sorted this through cydia. Now cant receive emails and in cydia message says error refreshing data. Please help!


This can happen with Jailbroken iPhones.
Try this: http://iphoners.org/cannot-connect-to-youtube/
or Google search "cannot connect youtube jailbroken" There are several reasons that it happens.
You can load MxTube instead.

I have an unlocked iphone 4 but my computer doesn't detect my iphone 4 anymore.


Hi panggalory,
Is your iPhone 4 factory unlocked or jailbroken then unlocked?
Either way, please read the following:
  • Make sure that the USB cable is in good condition
  • Try connecting in different USB ports of your system
  • Reinstall iTunes to the latest version http://apple.com/itunes
  • Try connecting your phone in some other computer

The above solutions should work because I myself have faced this problem and these have worked for me. If it still doesn't work, the please let me know.

My iphone is not alowing me to play youtube videos??


Hi Leon6253, Ive been having the same problem, noticed it about 4 days ago. On my iPhone 3Gs, 32gig, I have 2 pages of "saved to homescreen" icons of specific & individual music videos at YouTube. Previously they all worked FINE!! (I loved having the tiny pics/icons of whichever singer & their specific URL Direct to their song on my home screens). I would simply tap the icon/pic & YouTube would automatically open up & start playing. NOW, ZILCH !!! Instead it takes me to a YouTube page for that particular song but there is NO VIDEO window & NO BUTTON to "play video"!! Just a white square where the video normally is. SO WHO SCREWED THIS UP? YOUTUBE & GOOGLE, or what??? This is very distressing. Not only does the video NOT PLAY, but it also automatically changes my prior icon/picture into a RED icon with a "play video" type button. But if you tap on it, STILL NO VIDEO, but it merely goes to the page for the video &, as described above, there is NO VIDEO not PLAY button on the webpage!! Grrrrr. Sorry, I don't have a solution, just wanted the world to know you are not alone.
