Video site YouTube experiencing a worldwide outage

Yes, YouTube is down — it's not just you

YouTube experiences widespread outage

YouTube says they are working to resolve the issue.

The reports started coming in of YouTube's outage around 9:15 p.m. ET on Tuesday. "We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated", it said in a tweet.

The outage apparently also affected YouTube TV and YouTube Music access.

As yet we have no word from YouTube on what the problem is related to or if there's an estimated time on a fix.

YouTube is among the most popular sites in existence.

Damage included smashed windows, a spray-painted door and a keypad lock covered in glue, according to state party officials. Officers did arrest three people immediately following the Friday night incident, but none of them was a Proud Boy member.

Many people did not take the outage well.

YouTube was created in February 2005 by three former PayPal employees who needed a way to share a video with each other.

And now a YouTube support team on Twitter have provided the latest update on what is happening with the Google Video Service tonight.
