Hello people,

I have a question that some of you tech-heads may be able to answer. Why is it that I can visit youtube on my home or work computer and search for say "Flight of the conchords - Sexy Lady" and it will find me clips from the TV show.

But when i type the EXACT SAME search into my youtube app OR the youtube site on my Ipod/Iphone it will only find me live clips and nothing from the TV show itself? (Just an example, happens with other shows).

Infact i find that the search often gives different results, or the same results in different orders even when searching user made non copyrighted stuff.

Anyone know why? Is their some kind of setting i can adjust to give me the same results as a PC would get?

Thanks for the time folks.

I'm not sure if this would apply here, but I am aware that Youtube filters search results to only include those which are compatible with iDevices. Some videos are not encoded to play on iDevices. Again, not sure if this still happens, but that could be why.
I actually think you might be right with the copyright issues, I know music videos for example are filtered out of Youtube search results as they try to get people to move to Vevo.
