Home Entertainment YouTube went down for an hour on Wednesday

Twitter is awash with messages from around the world that YouTube is down.

Our own investigation suggests that while the static content will load in the browser, nothing dynamic is appearing.

This suggests a database crash – the web server is running, but nothing is being delivered from the SQL back-end.

A recent tweet from the YouTube team says they know about it and are working on the problem (probably frantically!).

Meanwhile, users are free to visit alternate services - pornhub springs to mind, as do any of the animated GIF services!

More information as it comes to hand.

Update: a short while after posting, it appeared the service had returned.  We will update once more information regarding the cause becomes available.

 

Further update: fellow iTWire writer DW speculates that there were issues with routing updates, however the true reason is yet to be communicated from Google/YouTube.
