Can't Access Youtube - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as m.youtube.com, youtu.be

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Maybe someone can help me. The last few days, when I leave comments to people on YOU TUBE, I get like 3/4 through a lenghty message, the whole screen goes black. Everything that I typed is LOST. I thought that it was my computer. A friend checked my computer a few hours ago. He said that there didn't seem to be anything wrong with my computer. I have left many messages on YOU TUBE over the last few years. I have Never had the Whole screen go Black. Could it be that You Tube is at fault? Would appreciate hearing if anyone else has the same proble. It seems to Only happens with You Tube. Thanks

yeah just pause adblock, pretty sure Youtube is doing another work-around for adblock users

Cameron Dew · 15 January 2016 - 22:55
· · Chrome 47.0 on Windows

As others have stated, the problem is the current version of Adblock, to fix it just do this: Click on the Adblock icon>Options>Filter Lists>Update Now. The latest version of the filters list(s) works with YT.

Donnell Peters · 15 January 2016 - 22:30

I suppose it's an adblocker that is responsioble. Try making a temporary expection for YouTube.

If I may make a suggestion, If you are using Google Chrome and you don't like having ads or using IE to watch videos, download both Adblock Plus and the Original Adblock (Not Pro) from the Google Apps and then disable Adblock Plus on the Youtube website it works and you don't get ads.

Natalie Heningburg Johnson · 15 January 2016 - 16:41
· · Chrome 47.0 on Windows

It's a problem with the latest ABP update ( a filter was accidentally removed):
Go to your extensions, select the "Options" button for ABP.
Then go to "Filters", and add the following:

@@||s.ytimg.com.

Refresh, and you should be good
(solution by mapx on adblockplus,org)

Another option: remove ABP, and install the AdGuard extension (in the Chrome Store) I did this even though the above DID work for me. AG is rated higher, so I switched

Ian Stanley · 15 January 2016 - 16:40
· · Chrome 47.0 on Windows

I'm not turning off ad blocker just to watch videos on youtube. And I hate using IE, so I guess it's goodbye youtube for me!

Cathelyne Kemps · 15 January 2016 - 15:47
· · Chrome 47.0 on Windows

deactivate ABP, refresh page and afterwards reactivate ABP. Normally it should work

Natalie Heningburg Johnson · 15 January 2016 - 13:59
· · Chrome 47.0 on Windows

PSA: EITHER DISABLE YOUR ABP (ad blocker plus) OR SIMPLY USE EDGE (Internet Explorer) INSTEAD

Robert Nix · 15 January 2016 - 13:46
· · Safari 9.0.2 on Mac

I go to sign in and sends it into a tailspin - keeps refreshing over and over again as if it's trying to login but can't - can't upload video either . . .

Philip Caldwell · 15 January 2016 - 13:36
· · Chrome 47.0 on Windows

If you're using Chrome , it's an attack on the adblock extension. If you turn of adblock and reload the page it will work ok.
