YouTube users were in meltdown as the worldwide video sharing site has stopped working for around two hours.
“Our team is aware of the issue and working on a fix. We’ll follow up here with any updates,” YouTube said in a tweet.
The issue started about 11.53pm, according to the monitoring site, with users complaining about trouble in watching videos on the platform.
Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment about how many users were affected by the outage on the video-streaming platform.
The YouTube post said: “If you’re having trouble watching videos on YouTube right now, you’re not alone – our team is aware of the issue and working on a fix. We’ll follow up here with any updates.”
Users took to Twitter to vent their frustrations using hashtag #YouTubeDOWN.
One user said: “You think you are upset. I pay for YouTube Premium AND YouTube TV AND BOTH my services are down.
“We better get a free f****** month for the lack of entertainment. I spend $80+ USD per month for entertainment from YouTube and I can’t watch any of it right now.”
Another agreed: “Premium subscribers definitely deserve a free month for this, just saying.”
While a disgruntled mum added: “Please fix it ASAP! I have a child who will not sleep without watching her fave Ozzy Osbourne videos!”
Another said: “Guy I was watching a how to live tutorial but YouTube down help.”
And another: “Daily Motion now that YouTube has decided to crash.”
Though one boasted: “Lucky for me, I am lame and load up the videos I want to watch well in advance, I am sorry for everyone who clicks on videos spontaneously like a normal person.”
However, around 2am YouTube tweeted again to say: “And we’re back – we’re so sorry for the interruption. This is fixed across all devices & YouTube services, thanks for being patient with us.”
On November 3, the platform had also tweeted to apologise to any users “seeing errors” in YouTube Studio.
