Hi,

Trying to access Youtube; and all I'm getting is an "500 Internal Server Error" page. Have tried a few different URLs and a fair few refreshes.

Is this just "me" (or perhaps a caching issue at my ISP), or a "bigger thing?"

As an aside: the error itself is fairly amusing, and contains a rather large blob of what is presumably base64 encoded stuff; has anyone ever bothered trying to decode that and figure out what it is?

sidefx: Seems fine to me and here:

http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/youtube.com

Yeah, I thought of going to that site; but wasn't sure how smart the back-end was - does it just connect and see if it gets a page back; or does it parse for errors, or ??

At the end of the day, the youtube "error 500" page is a page, and does imply the webserver is up...

At any rate, it does seem to be back - interesting, it was down for several minutes, and I've never seen youtube down before...  First time for everything, I guess!
