[Resolved] YouTube not working? Fix in works confirms company

This story is being continuously updated….new updates are being added at the bottom…..

YouTube and ruptured features/functionalities is more like a routine. Every now and then, different issues come to light that gets the developers on heels to fix things up.

We ended the weekend by highlighting two officially acknowledged problems. First, wherein the comments section – i.e. ‘Held for review’ and ‘Likely spam’ – in the YouTube Studio (or Creator Studio) wasn’t displaying any results. Second, where ‘this video is private…’ error displayed on publishing content.

And now, to begin the weekend, we have at hand a bigger problem. YouTube isn’t working at all for many. While some users say YouTube isn’t working, other say, while uploading a video they get kicked out and then are asked to sign in again. However, YouTube just won’t let them sign in.

Take a look at how some of the complainants word the glitch at the official help forum as well as micro-blogging site Twitter:

My YouTube isn’t working keeps saying I am signed out but won’t let me sign in tried deleting and uploading it again didn’t work what’s going on YouTube?

Same here. It is not responding to the uploads only. Please fix it, we (all) need to upload videos



What’s good is, soon after the matter was reported, a Google employee, pitched in and acknowledged the issue saying:

We’re aware of this and the team is working on a fix at the moment!

Team YouTube also repeated something similar while reverting back to complainants on Twitter.


As for the latest development on the matter, Team YouTube has confirmed the problem has been resolved for many. But those who are still encountering the same issue, will also get it resolved soon.


So those of you who continue to face the issue should keep patience as it will hopefully be resolved soon. Rest assured we are keeping an active tab on the matter and will update as and when any new development comes to out sight.
