YouTube is down for some as users report unreliable service for several hours

YouTube is up and down in various parts of the world. Users trying to reach the video portal are getting various errors, or are unable to reach the service at all.

I first saw the following “Http/1.1 Service Unavailable” error when trying to get to YouTube:

Martin Bryant got the following 502 error, before seeing the site again, and then getting the above error instead:

Refreshing like a madman sometimes gets me back to YouTube, though it doesn’t take long for the service to die again. DownRightNow is reporting a Likely Service Disruption:

A search on Twitter for “YouTube down” shows that users from all around the world are affected, and have been seeing issues for several hours.  Jon Russell says he has had trouble with YouTube all morning and afternoon (UK time).

Update at 11:15AM EST: DownRightNow has updated YouTube’s status to “Recent Signs of Service Trouble.” It appears the service is starting to stabilize again.
