YouTube Down – March 25
As of about 7am Eastern time this morning, YouTube went into “Http/1.1 Service Unavailable” mode. In our testing, embedded videos appear to be working a-ok.
There’s a bunch of chatter about the outage over on Twitter. In fact questions about YouTube’s outage are coming in so quickly that the instant you hit submit, there are already a batch more in the search queue!
One Twitter user noted, “I’m going to die without YouTube ):”
I understand there are several people visiting local hospitals because they are unable to watch the latest cat videos. People, please remain calm during this unfortunate time.
As always, please report in if YouTube is down for you as well.
Update 7:13am – the current error message shows a 500 Internal Service Error.
Update: 8:15am – still down – Check out this good list of alternative videos put together by Zee at NextWeb.
Update: 8:45am – YouTube is back! Resume cat video watching!
