Even the Youtube app is god-awful. The Youtube app on my iPhone is much slicker in every way which is shocking considering Google owns Youtube!
When was the last time you used an android device of any quality?

IPlayer and YouTube apps work without any issues at all for me. You also have the advantage of being able to use the real websites and not the app.

Also embedded YouTube videos work from the webpage.

What else do you want them to do?

IPlayer didn't used to work over 3G on apple which it does with Android.
