Skip to comments.Youtube Went Down for Millions Around the World
Posted on 10/19/2018 1:40:33 PM PDT by Freedom of Speech Wins
Users worldwide reported that YouTube was down for many people for at least an hour on Tuesday night, October 16. The reason is not yet known, but reports came in fast worldwide. This is unusual for one of the most popular websites in the world. So far, YouTube hasnt issued an official statement about what happened except to note that they are working on the problem and to later note that it was fixed. Although the site may have occasionally had brief issues in the past, being down this long is very rare. Some regions are reporting that the site is beginning to start working correctly again as of about 10 p.m. Eastern, but others were still having issues. By 11 p.m. Eastern, YouTube had reported that the problem was resolved, without providing an explanation. By 1:30 a.m., YouTube was still responding to earlier tweets, explaining the problem was fixed, and offering advice to those with YouTube TV who felt they should get some kind of refund. It appears the site was down for about 90 minutes.

This censorship is like having the IRS audit all the Tea Party groups.
LOCK HER (Lois Lerner)UP !!!
Links, please. :)
Being in IT I can guess the cause:
It was an implementation of a modification that ended up having a glitch that had to be fixed. Usually a system works flawlessly until a change is implemented and causes an unforeseen problem. They then either roll back the change or try to fix it in place.
I use it all the time for instructions on how to fix, install, or otherwise complete work. If I had needed it at the time it would have been a serious problem.
I used youtube to find out how to DIY the brake line replacement on my crappy Z71 Chevy pickup.
I pick it up from the dealership tomorrow, $1,000 poorer.
Vegas? Rumor at the start on 8chan is that it was a video from the laptop.
And I bet they appreciated that!
One would think there would be lots of redundant server sites for something as big as Youtube.
If you saw the page delivered in its place, it was hacked... quite likely by a disgruntled employee or former employee.
Didn’t go down for everyone for 90 minutes?
A whole hour, huh. Earth shattering.
I watched a couple Mannix reruns with no problems.
My thought. Downtime needed. Unforeseen glitch.
Even if it is not a LARP, it does not automatically follow that it is entirely accurate and reliable (even if sincerely intended).
Trust what you choose. I will distrust what I choose.
123tv.live works too.
