Fortunately, the folks at YouTube are on the ball and have already tweeted saying “our team is aware of the issue and working on a fix.” Until then, maybe try…uh, is Vimeo still around?

Update (8:35 PM ET): There’s no official update yet, but it looks like videos on YouTube may be playing again, feel free to use our channel to confirm.

Update (9:13 PM ET): YouTube confirmed services have been restored worldwide. It did not provide a reason for the outage.

…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 ❤️
