YouTube Down: Http/1.1 Service Unavailable

By Peter Chubb - Mar 25, 2010

Millions of YouTube users will be waking up to learn that the online video website is down, and has been since 7am Eastern Time this morning. When I first visited the site I was greeted with the message “Http/1.1 Service Unavailable”, that keeps changing back-and-fourth, just now it read “Service unavailable”.

Center Networks found that all embedded videos still work, but we cannot be certain of that. Go check your embedded YouTube Videos and let us know if yours are still up?

Twitter is on fire at the moment with this story, and we have not heard anything from YouTube about what the problem is and how long it will take to fix. This outage is sure to become a nightmare later when the U.S. start hitting the website.

Let us known if YouTube is down for you, add your comment below.

    It is starting, meaning the shit is about to kickstart the fan. Most likely the Chinese as they have the ability to hack our systems and other as well. I wish you all a very fond farewell. See you on the other side.
