  • Mark Dawg

    YouTube failed for me on Friday 10th March 2017 in the UK…. I have spent hours with my ISP to no avail.
    Even at 144 low resolution it still buffers a 3 minute music video for 30 minutes and then fails completely.
    Still not viewable Sunday 12th March 2017.
    I can connect, but nothing more.

    Youtube has never been down for me. Until yesterday it wouldn’t work. It came back up eventually but now it’s happening again. Something must be up with youtube. And looking at the number of reports it appears to be something that happened this week as almost all of the reports of it not working this year so far have been made in the past week.
