YouTube Problems

You can be sure server status problems will stretch between many platforms that include Smart TVs, PC and Mac, iPhone and iPad, Android devices, and a lot more when watching Youtube. However, with this platform being completely worldwide and millions of users using it on a daily basis, there’s going to be many problems with the website or app and in previous reports, there’s been many explaining their video has frozen, they’ve lost subscribers or with it simply not working and are unable to gain access to YouTube in general.

  • Chess of Confusion

    Ok of me, things started happening around about a week ago, when i randomly click on a video it would say an error occurred, please try later. (playback ID followed by some random letter’s. Then after a few seconds later the video then would start, I’ve gone to my channel and i’ve been signed out, i’ve uploaded a video today on 9 of June and it said error and something about the server and please try again later. I’ve click publish again and it’s then worked I don’t know what’s going on.

    When using YouTube Premium all that I can see when playing videos is ADS, which tells me premium is NOT blocking them on YouTube App using Android. The ADS are getting blocked on browsers but cannot use the play in the background feature.

And looking at the number of reports it appears to be something that happened this week as almost all of the reports of it not working this year so far have been made in the past week.
