YouTube Is Down

CmdrTaco posted more than 3 years ago | from the what-it's-2012-already dept.

Youtube 152

A number of readers have noted that YouTube is currently giving back 400 and 502 http errors, and has apparently been doing so for an hour or more. I suggest you use this window of opportunity to get something done: the dancing kitties will still be there when you're done.

Hey, it's Slashdot here... by the time the news make it to the main headlines, any website downtime can be resolved.

Re:it's back.... (2, Insightful)

natehoy (1608657) | more than 3 years ago | (#31609406)

Until you get all the slashdotters going to check the see if the web site is up, then the site gets slashdotted. Self-fulfilling prophecy.

julesh (229690) | more than 3 years ago | (#31609190)

And in the UK.

So, basically, a single node in a CDN has gone down. Huge story, and /. has done well to be the first to (apparently) break it. 'Grats, Taco. ;)

It's back up, it was down from everywhere ... (2, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#31609308)

I checked via ssh -D into four of my machines, two in the US, one in Europe and another in India.

Now, I didn't check from the HK boxes, but I assume it was down for real.

And btw, It's back up now for everyone.

badpazzword (991691) | more than 3 years ago | (#31609404)

Considered that "Service Unavailable" is one of today's "tending topics" on Twitter, I'd say that's a bit more than one CDN node.

Re:Works here (1)

DerekLyons (302214) | more than 3 years ago | (#31610028)

With the huge number of websites out there, and with Wikipedia's outage yesterday... That "service unavailable" is a trending topic, proves little.

Re:Works here (1, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#31609240)

Also in Southeast US (North Carolina) and it works fine for me.

Re:Works here (5, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#31609282)

Yeah, working here from the midwest. Taco knows how the internet works. Why, exactly, do we have a "major site is down" story with no links? A major data center or backbone going down might be news. What we seem to have here is an unconfirmed and unsubstantiated anecdotal evidence that someone, somewhere on the internet might have lost access to youtube?

I think more coffee is required to process this story.

Re:Works here (1, Funny)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#31609842)

Here [youtube.com] is a link to the story. However I think it's already slashdotted.

Re:Works here (1)

jmac_the_man (1612215) | more than 3 years ago | (#31610090)

Why, exactly, do we have a "major site is down" story with no links?

Yeah, they should totally link to YouTube's response to it. Oh wait...

Dancing kitties will still be there? (5, Funny)

TSchut (1314115) | more than 3 years ago | (#31609160)

How does the submitter know that the dancing kitties will still be there? Maybe there's a big fire and all dancing kitties have been burned! ONOES. Or at least, their digital representation has been burned. Still onoes I suppose.

It's today's "and nothing of value was lost" entry.

Re:Slow news day? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#31609324)

You see, youtube.com is a very popular site on the internet and it being down affects lots of people.

Slashdot.org, another popular site, specializes in "news for nerds". Many of those nerds are often on the internet and might be interested in youtube.com being down and they might also be interested in speculation as to why that is (or was) the case.

I think the the reasoning behind publishing this as news might be something along those lines or something. Feel free to ask follow-up questions if there is anything more you'd be interested to know.

Just the frontpage is down (1)

csueiras (1461139) | more than 3 years ago | (#31609200)

If you go directly to a video link, youtube works. Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3sBBRxDAqk [youtube.com] for example. Happy Youtube Browsing! :)

Cricket/IPL Effect? (4, Interesting)

Gopal.V (532678) | more than 3 years ago | (#31609206)

Today Bangalore is playing in the IPL today and youtube is supposed to be streaming the match live [google.com] . The timing of this outage is almost coincidental. And not all of youtube is down, for instance, I clicked through to this video [youtube.com] which seems to be working.

Add to that, the fact that Airtel (my isp) has lifted the bandwidth limits for this particular Youtube channel (they have a local stream point, I guess ... it doesn't cost them upstream). [airtel.in]

So as soon as youtube is down, I head a groan all around my floor and people leaving their desks to go watch the match in the cafeteria. One of those odd situations when youtube going down probably caused a drop in productivity ;)

Re:Cricket/IPL Effect? (0)

Let me guess, you work for a three lettered company that starts with an I?

Re:Cricket/IPL Effect? (1)

natehoy (1608657) | more than 3 years ago | (#31609466)

No, because then he'd be asking Youtube for an RCA to explain the SLA. I'd add more TLA's, but I don't work for IBM any more and I don't have access to "whatis".

Re:Cricket/IPL Effect? (1)

elrous0 (869638) | more than 3 years ago | (#31609574)

I guess the billions upon billions of cricket fans waiting across the world with baited breath for this match will just have to be disappointed.

Re:Cricket/IPL Effect? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#31609758)

I think you meant "bated breath". And yes, cricket really does have billions of fans worldwide. Unlike baseball, which has really no expression outside of the US and Cuba, cricket is a true trans-continental sport, attracting interest in Europe, the Americas, Asia, Oceania.

Re:Cricket/IPL Effect? (1)

Who needs a link to go to YouTube?!? I mean, put a link to a wiki article, put a link to a specific news article, but on YouTube...

And anyway, a link to YouTube would only have confirmed that Slashdot is late, because clicking the link to YouTube would have worked, and the headline says it's down!

Amusingly enough, one of my professors attempted to show a YouTube video on UA Flight 232 not an hour ago. It worked after refreshing the page, however - doesn't seem like it was much of an outage. He did draw a cry of "Fail!" from one overzealous student, though. :)

Anyone else notice the slow responses from Google? (3, Interesting)

C_Kode (102755) | more than 3 years ago | (#31609418)

I've noticed lots of slow responses or no responses from Google servers lately. (Gmail, Google Docs, Google Search, Youtube, Google Maps, etc) It doesn't happen all the time, but many many times throughout the day. Has anyone else noticed this? If so, is anything known about it? DOS, etc?

Actually, yes.

Using whois on 3 different systems in 3 different locations.

Try it for any really big site (I mean Facebook big not Slashdot big). It's been like that for years. Just a stupid failure in how whois works. Can somebody explain how it works?

DOSa and China.

It's clear that the chinese govt. is getting back at Google for uncensoring their searches. Banning the 'droid phones from the chinese telecoms, cutting access to the HK Google site were the first salvos, and perhaps bombing Youtube is just one in a number of hostile steps.

... the first instance of a website being slashdotted before /. runs the story?

YouTube is down. And a million viewers from /. descend upon it like the plague. Yeah, that'll help bring it back up...
