Go to Tools. Hit Options. Hit the Privacy button. Press "Show Cookies" in the middle of the page. Go all the way down to Youtube.com and double click on it. Click on the first one. It will tell you something in the space called "Content".in the description. On the server problem on You Tube, look at what is says. It will say stuff like :

EXAMPLE:
(First part)ViSITOR_INFO_1KittyKat (Second part)133bd4455...

you look at each cookie description content and find the 2 that match the first and second part of the error.
Delete those cookies. Refresh the page. IT will work find, AND WILL LET YOU LOG IN.

The reason behind the error:
This is something that happens when a user signs in and out of their youtube account constantly or sees many people's channels nonstop.

Depending on which browser you are using try the following:

Internet Explorer 6:
Go to Tools then Internet Options
Select Delete Cookies then click OK
Select Delete Files then click OK
Select Clear History select Yes then OK

Internet Explorer 7:
Select Tools, Internet Options, Delete
Select Delete files and click Yes
Select Delete cookies and click OK
Select Delete history and click OK
Close (browsing history window)
Click OK

You should also empty your temp files as they can waste a lot of space.

Every time i go 2 youtube it says 400 bad request.


CauseThe 400 Bad Request error is an HTTP status code that means that the request you sent to the website server (i.e. a request to load a web page) was somehow malformed therefore the server was unable to understand or process the request. Resolution
  1. Check for errors in the URL. The most common reason for a 400 Bad Request error is because the URL was typed wrong or the link that was clicked on points to a URL with some kind of mistake in it.

  2. Though it's rare, the 400 Bad Request error could be an issue with the web site's server that you are trying to access. You may want to attempt to contact the webmaster or another site contact and inform them of the error message. The webmaster of most Internet sites can be reached via email at webmaster@website.com, replacing website.com with the actual website name.

I too was getting the "400 Bad Request" message in Chrome but other browsers could go to the same web page without problem. I found the it was the DNS pre-fetching causing my error. I went into Options, then "Under the Hood" and unchecked "Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance". Immediately my 400 error went away and hasn't been seen since.

400 bad request




clear the cache and delete the cookies from site(s) that cause problems:
Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"
Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"



If that didn't help then try to rename or delete cookies.sqlite and cookies.txt (if it exists) in the profile folder in case there is a problem with the file.

My youtube isnt working


Clear all private data cookies etc first then retry. My Firefox does this from time to time until I clear the private data for that session. This needs to be done by hand in the tools menu as the auto clean up usually misses stuff that is causing this.
