Neither the site nor embedded videos are working at the momentYouTube is acting up again, it had a few problems earlier this week and it's happening again. This time around it's dead for good, the site only retrieves a "Http/1.1 Service Unavailable" if you try to visit.
Even embedded videos aren't working, so it's obviously a bigger problem.
The embedded videos get a standard error message "500 Internal Server Error. Sorry, something went wrong. A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation."
YouTube's been down for an hour now, judging from Twitter reports and it seems to be down all over the world. There's no official word on what's going on or how long it's going to last. It's night time in the US so it may take longer for the problem to be fixed.
