FOR BAD REQUEST ERROR:
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.

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 want to go to youtube but everytime I want to it says 400 bad request.


Sometimes when this happens its because of cookies that cause the 400 bad request.
Delete the cookies by going to tools on internet expoler (If its not a bar a the top just press alt) and go to delete browsing history and go to delete all the cookies and, delte them.

400 Bad request


hi,
If "your browser sent a request that this server could not understand"
and "size of request header field exceeds server limit", your request
is a bad or oversized cookie. (The same thing is true for "Error 400").

For some very strange reason, it seems 9 of
10 Bad Request messages implicate Firefox.

Simply delete your "Cookies" and everything
will be okay. Don't worry about erasing them;
nothing bad will happen. You won't lose your
internet browser's "Bookmarks" or "Favorites".
The worst thing that could happen is you will
be asked to retype your username/password
when you return to YouTube and some other
websites -- that's all.

As you're dumping your cookies, you should
also erase all your "Temporary Internet Files"
and "History". This will render your computer
totally "fresh" in YouTube's eyes. It would be
best if you shutdown / reboot after doing this:

Internet Explorer 6:
> Tools > Internet Options
> Delete Cookies > OK
> Delete Files > OK
> Clear History > Yes
> OK

Internet Explorer 7:
> Tools > Internet Options > Delete...
> Delete files > Yes
> Delete cookies > OK
> Delete history > OK
> Close (browsing history window)
> OK


Peace,
B

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.
