On Wednesday afternoon (PT), some YouTube users are reporting issues with the video site. The primary issue is an empty homepage.
“There was a problem with the server ” is one error that users are seeing on Android with the retry button not helping. This is also impacting the youtube.com homepage on desktop web.
Three people in our team (US + France) are having issues, but video playback and other parts — Library, channel pages, etc. — continue to work/load. Not all users are seeing this issue.
TeamYouTube has since confirmed the problem on Twitter.
Update: The problem was fixed at 6 p.m. PT.
