[qi:_newteevee] Googlers probably can’t wait for this week to end. After a rash of problems with search, GMail and Blogger — now YouTube has gone on the fritz (Update: YouTube search is back up and working). What’s got to smart even worse is that the problem is just with YouTube’s search; videos have so far been playing just fine. A YouTube spokesperson contacted NewTeeVee, writing: “We’re aware some users are having trouble searching on YouTube. We’re looking into it, and we’ll update everyone soon.” As always, the Twitterati are all over the issue, tweeting about the #youtubefail.

  1. We’re back up!

  2. i bet ther doin this on purpose, ther preparing for all that monoply charges,,,, when they stop the search engine people will automatically shift to yahoo and windows live, that would be a helpful evidence that google could use to show that using ther services is just a habit and that ther just a natuaral monoply,,, and as they say: competition is one click away!!!!

  5. You Tube worked allright on North West Uk up until 6 pm, on 16 th MAy. Since 6 pm, I’ve been trying every hour and it just comes up with the ‘Error- try again’ message.
    WTH is going on?
    I have top broadband connection and provider, I can see videos in metacafe and others, but not on YT. It’s becoming annoying as I saved most of my top faves in there.
    I hope Google is ashamed of themselves, I despise them for this mess.

  9. I cannot search on Youtube. It’s July 3. When I do a search, I get a single column of words on the left of my screen with links that do not work and can’t pull up any actual videos to click on. Using IE8. Anyone else still has this problem?

    1. I am having the same problem too on YouTube. It’s all messed up. When I use the search engine, I just end up getting a single column with words. And I am using Mozilla Firefox.

      1. I have noticed that sometimes the search engine works on a PC but if you do it rhough a Mac or Linux box it produces the one column with words crap. Using Mozilla Firefox and Safari on the Mac and PC.
