YouTube is proper broken

Has anyone else been getting a lot of these recently?

We’re sorry, this video is no longer available.

I’ve been getting loads. At first I thought it was that YouTube had withdrawn the video but it hadn’t come out of the search results and people’s profiles yet. But apparently they haven’t as many of the videos, including some of mine are still available.

Indeed, if you just hit refresh a few times on a video that is displaying that message it will eventually show you the video.

Having had a google around people seemed to initially blame it on embed code for videos which have since been withdrawn but based on what I have described above and the fact I have experienced it on itself, it would seem otherwise.

I did hear one blog blame it on high traffic and the servers not being able to cope. Seems a very plausable explanation. Maybe Google is letting itself go a bit?



Don't have time to check my blog? Get a weekly email with all the new posts. This is my personal blog, so obviously it is 100% spam free.
