Your bit of France was obviously unaffected… lucky you.
Seems we were not alone… no-one in our commune could get YT for quite some time… some complained via various sites, other (like us) presumed it was the computer playing up.
I was edgy, as it was right in the middle of sorting out an Occitan carol for December 2018… I had heard it, found the words… went back to YouTube to check words against music… but … NO… Nothing !!! Arrrgh…
yes that might be the reason im just looking at the comments. seems mobile connect access was working fine it was home users using fixed lines that were having issues. atm im operating from my 4g phone.
maybe youtube updated some browser codes or something but seems to be all resolved now
