I clicked on a link on a website for my school, and then it opened in another page. idk if i clicked something or this happened on its own, but then a video tried to open from the image. I've messed around with my settings, and i can't seem to be able to get a youtube video to open on my ipod if it's from a website, i always have to go directly from youtube to find anything. So it says "could not load video", the only option is to click okay, so I do, and then it gives me the main ipod youtube page, with history and search and all that stuff. I give up and decide to just look at something else, and click safari, except it goes straight to the image, which goes straight to the unloadable video on another program, and then i have to close the page. It goes in circles, but it means that safari is unusable, and my computer is broken, so i really need it for internet.

Also, is there a way to make youtube videos viewable from a website link?

And why, when I search up a popular song on youtube on my ipod, and type in that i want the lyric video, i only get live versions, and there is never any lyric videos, and i usually detest live versions of songs?? and then when i search the same thing on someone's computer, i get my lovely lyric videos? Is Youtube angry at Apple or something?

aand why were the older ipods less crash-prone?

answers are very helpful, especially for the first question, because i am clueless about technoloy. Honestly, it took me a year to learn how to turn on my computer....


iPod touch, aaaaah

    A lote of sitesuse the Flash version of YourTube. no iOS devices support flash. The you have to either use the YourTube app or Safari to go to YouTube since Safari tells the YouTube site to use HTML5.

     

    For other problems withwith Safari try going to Settins>Safari and clear Histor, Cookies and Data.

    Also reset the iPod. Nothing is lost.

    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
