Its too much to handle for YouTube now : Finally its down

Hi,

Well I was just doing the daily maintenance of one of the sites I own where I have several youtube videos embedded. I noticed that I wasn’t able to embed some videos successfully which were there before yesterday. I tried changing my script 2-3 times, tried different method. Finally I thought of opening the video directly in the browser.

Bingo! Youtube is down for the first time in front of my eyes. Am I dreaming?

I did a quick:

  • ping youtube.com (Failed)
  • tracert youtube.com (Failed)
  • ping google.com (Success)

So indeed it was youtube that sucked for the first time. Find below a snap shot of the same.

You can clearly see that:

  • Server not found on browser
  • Top right window shows successful ping to google.com
  • Below two command line window shows failed ping and tracert of youtube servers.
