For some people, the website still works but it is impossible for them to load a video. Others have said that they were stuck in a perpetual loop when trying to load a video. YouTube TV and YouTube Music are also affected.
As for us, we couldn’t load the website or any videos prior to 9.45am but after that, we could play videos! Were you affected? Let us know in the comments!
