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)I_D pageKittyKat (Second part)133bd4455.

My you tube has 400 bad requests !


Delete cookies by going to Internet options and try to re-log in the browser. Also try another browser if deleting cookies doesn't work. Some virus prevent you from logging into particular sites. Install a good anti virus software and scan for virus. I use kaspersky anti virus and haven't had any trouble in a long time.

Youtube will not work


Hello,
This problem would arise due to malware or virus in your browser or when you have large cookies.
Check you tube with other browsers. Run antivirus on the current browser or if you are using firefox go to TOOLS->OPTIONS->PRIVACY->COOKIES and clear youtube's cookie and try to use youtube. Similarly do it for other browsers.


Hope it helps,
Good luck!

Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit. Cookie: VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=5gcTVq-0wa8; PREF=gl=US


Hi there!

If "your browser sent a request that this server
could not understand" - and "size of a request
header field exceeds server limit", that strange
request may be a bad or "super-sized" cookie.

Simply delete all your cookies, and everything
should be fine.

While you're erasing your cookies, you should
also be deleting your "temporary internet files"
and "history" to make everything fresh.

Here's how:

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

Mozilla Firefox
→ Tools → Clear Private Data
[x] Browsing History
[x] Download History
[x] Saved Form and Search History
[x] Cache
[x] Cookies
→ Clear Private Data Now

Have fun!

*Your vote is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
