Earlier today we heard that YouTube suffered an outage which left users unable to access the popular video sharing website, apparently this occurred in the “early hours” this morning.
Just over a week ago YouTube was down for an hour or so with an error message which read ‘Http/1.1 Service Unavailable‘, however today’s error message left users with an error message reading ‘500 Internal Server Error’.
YouTube is now back online and seems to be fully functional, YouTube have not officially commented on the outage, however I find it quite odd that the site has been down twice in a relatively short amount of time.
Were you affected by the YouTube outage? If so where and when were you affected?
