YouTube Down – Seems Like The Outage Bug Has Hit Today
This morning we reported on the outage at Technorati. Om reports that Yahoo had some issues today as well. Now it appears that YouTube is out of service as well. We saw a few outages with YouTube earlier this year but the site has been rock solid since.
There’s a bunch of chatter about the outage over on Twitter. 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 10:45PM: YouTube does appear to load now however the site loads without the stylesheet.
Update 10:55PM: As c187 notes in the comments, Google’s server "http://s.ytimg.com" appears to be the issue now – and the reason for the style and look not loading.
Update 6AM: Apparently YouTube was down because they decided to bring out a
awesome nasty looking new design update. Mike Arrington notes that they have also added a search bar to the embedded video option. My gut tells me they shrunk the header even further to allow for a larger ad space – but the text in the nav just looks like amateurish. I also noticed earlier this week they began trapping the referral url into the links inside the embedded movies. This will tell YouTube/Google where people are grabbing links from.
