UPDATE: Although YouTube suffered a massive outage early today (October 17), it was reported that the social media platform has now been brought back to normal. Users can now freely access videos through the website.


YouTube videos began returning errors around 9pm EST. The site infrastructure still loads, but the videos themselves do not play and are replaced by error messages imploring users to “please try again later.”

The video-sharing website is seeing a massive service disruption across the northeastern United States, as well as parts of West and East Coasts. Users in Australia also failed to watch their favorite videos. Mexico, Brazil, and EU countries have also been affected, according to reports on the Down Detector monitoring site.

The company has acknowledged it received many “reports of access issues” about YouTube, YouTube TV, and YouTube Music. “We’re working on resolving this and will let you know once fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated,” it said in a tweet.

Meanwhile, Twitter and Facebook erupted with traffic as users tried to figure out what was going on, but no one seems to have solved the mystery yet. Deprived of their ability to watch video clips, people did their best with GIFs.
