iTunes U and YouTube videos

New Contributor III

Does anyone else have teachers using iTunes U to manage their classes? A lot of mine are including YouTube links in the courses, but when they click the link to play the video they get playback errors and usually can't play the video directly from the iTunes U course; this is all usually while on AirPlay, mirroring the iPad. If they look up the video directly through the YouTube app or on the YouTube app on the Apple TV it will usually play, but this is of course an unacceptable workaround.

Unfortunately trying to search for this problem hasn't been easy since too many different key words are being picked up and I haven't been able to narrow it down in a way to find any useful information. I'm hoping someone here might be having the same issue so I know I'm not alone at least.
