502 Server Error: YouTube Down

There have been reports that YouTube is down and that users have been receiving a 502 error. I just visited the video website and had no trouble getting on, but it seems that this problem has been intermittent all day. This error was first reported this morning when users tried to access the homepage.

According to Post Chronicle, it is not just the 502 error that has been affecting YouTube visitors, other issues have been blank screens instead of the video content of an embedded video. This is not the first time, earlier this year a similar problem occurred, but that time users were met with an ‘Http 1.1 Service Unavailable’ message.

The last error was blamed on system upgrades; we are not certain what YouTube will say this one was due to?

Users have been on Twitter to say that YouTube has been on and off all day, as I say I have now been on the site at least ten times — getting on each time.

Have you been able to get on YouTube or have you been met with a 502 error?

well….its happening again. Probably youtube overloaded (too many searches at the same time) That could knock out there servers for some time. I know how huge and capable the servers are, but everything has its limits…

I've been getting the 502 error roughly 95% of the time today. The good news is that if you're YouTubing for music, as long as a video loads, you can always hit the "back" button and relisten to the previous song.

The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request.
Please try again in 30 seconds.

I have been able to get on but also have met the 502 server error. Plus the site has been really slow the last couple of hrs. Either they are updating the server or there is a problem with the current server that is being a problem that they trying to fix

Yes, it seems to only cause an 502 error when I try to access certain videos. I notice the advertisements still play on some despite access, maybe a breach in the advertisement codes.

A few hours ago when I tried to send a bulletin to my subscribers, the "We are performing routine maintenance" message was on my channel page. I'm able to view some videos while others give me the 502 error.

I was on Youtube a few hours ago and had no problems. I didn’t spend a lot of time while on there, but it worked fine.

I’ve seen the 502 error before, usually late at night. I try later when I get it too much. What’s going on today that there would be outages? Maintenance?

Why today.. as I've found a new favourite song and checking it on Youtube.

You can get onto youtube just fine, but the issue occurs when you attempt to play content. I've been able to listen to a video once, and then upon the next playlist entry, I'll get the 502 error. Hope that helps.

Seeing this issue right now. Every time the video changes to the next on my playlist. It's usually resolved by refreshing the page, but sometimes it takes a minute before it will come up again.
