    Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum here.
    Two days ago, I was using my surfing for a product on safari and I clicked on a link which redirects me to the standard iOS YouTube app. However, upon loading the video, I found out the the video have no link to what I was wanting to see. It keeps showing this video about and from portable.nl reviewing some Samsung phone video I think. Overall the video is 33seconds long and soon I realize that there is a big problem. Now every single video I load as long as I'm on my home wifi would be this shitty video. I'm totally lost and this problems seems to be about my wifi. All the other idevice's youtube in my house works perfectly fine. Except for my iPhone. When I use 3G to load a video it will be the normal video but as long as I'm on my house wifi, all video will become that 33s clip from portablegear.nl. funny thing is I didnt even click on any videos like it cus I'll never even be intrested in a Samsung phone. Ive tried everything I can for my wifi including disconnecting and forgetting a network and rejoining and respringing and it is still playing that stupid video with that stupid music. I am going to take a screen shot and show you what I mean. And another problem is my battery. I have just gotten a refurbish set like a month a go 1week prior to end of my warrenty and the battery was great. I can watch hours of videos using wifi on my phone and only drain a small percentage of my battery, now as I took about 10minutes I type all these out, 10%have drained. Is my phone under some sort of virus sending out some information and thus draining my battery and at the same time make that YouTube app go haywire? Help needed. Thanks!

    Your phone does not have a virus. Sounds like an API error. but I am no developer.

    Try this:

    Settings> General> Reset> Reset All Settings.

    It will not delete anything.......you will just have to reconfigure your preferences in the Settings.app and rearrange your home screen icons.

    Okay... I'll try the restore settings. But my iPhone 4 16gb is running on ios5.0.1 and is jailbroken and heavily tweaked. Using things like infinidock and all. Will it all be gone and will my jb be gone too? Anyway thanks fr the help! I'm just confused. I didn't even watch that video! And suddenly all the video loads that way.
