YouTube DOWN? Users Reporting Problems With The Site and Unable To Load Videos

It is not uncommon for online services to go down for brief periods of time.

This has happened to numerous sites in the last week.

From Discord and EA to Xbox Live the day the Series X/S releases, it appears no one can catch a break as of late.

Now, the world's largest video sharing platform is having massive issues.

Here's what we know!

 

Server Issues

Twitter has been exploding with people citing issues with YouTube on the night of November 11th.

As well, sites such as downdetector.ca have noted a massive spike in user reports of problems with the site.

This is the first time in quite a while that YouTube has been experiencing issues.

Not only have sites been noting problems with YouTube, but the hashtag #YouTubeDOWN has been trending on Twitter.

As of writing, there seems to be no official statement from YouTube themselves.

We also do not know what could be the root cause of this issue, but it appears users cannot load any videos. 

We will be sure to update you if we hear any news regarding YouTube.

Hopefully, this issue becomes resolved as soon as possible and we can get back to watching all those videos!
