YouTube Down

YouTube has been reportedly down for over 30 minutes, as of 11-25-07 at 12:55pm EST, with the following error message:

Http/1.1 Service Unavailable

This seems to be affecting all YouTube sites including:

  • UK YouTube (uk.youtube.com)
  • CA YouTube (ca.youtube.com)
  • YouTube Blog (youtube.com/blog)

This is not the first time YouTube has gone down for an extended period of time. It experienced over 5 hours of downtime in August of 2006, with little explanation from the company.

More details to follow as they become available.

Update:

  • As of 1:20pm EST, YouTube is back up. No word yet on the cause of the outage.
  • On 11/29/2007 YouTube was again inexplicably down with the same error message. If you can’t take the traffic, get off the highway.
