YouTube seems to be having some issues this morning (Thursday, 12th November).
If you can’t seem to load any videos at the moment, that’s because YouTube is currently experiencing some technical issues.
You can still enter the YouTube desktop website to browse and search for videos on the YouTube app. But as soon as you hit the play button, the video won’t load and an error message (as seen in the screenshot above) will appear.
Other reports share that the YouTube TV premium streaming service and YouTube Music are also affected. The video streaming platform has been made aware of the problem and have since issued a statement on Twitter, informing users that the team is working on fixing the issue.
If you’re having trouble watching videos on YouTube right now, you’re not alone – our team is aware of the issue and working on a fix. We’ll follow up here with any updates.
