It is possible that you are being denied access from your hosts file. Go to my computer and click on the hard drive (generally c:\). Go to Windows, system32, drivers, and etc.

In the folder etc, you will find a file called "hosts". Rename this to "hostsback". Now, open this file with notepad or wordpad and look for www.youtube.com or youtube.com in the list and delete it. Save this as "hosts".

Go to Tools and Folder Options. Click view, then make sure "Hide extensions" is not checked. If the new "hosts" file has .txt at the end, right click and rename it to "hosts".

Now try and see if youtube.com works.

If not, maybe check firewall settings. Or try it on another computer on the same network.

    If you have antivirus or internet security software installed on your machine such as McAfee or Norton, it is possible that either of these are blocking the site.

400 bad request


Clear your browser cache (temporary internet files) & cookie And again try to load you tube.
If that doesn't work, use a different browser. E.g. Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera. NOT IE.
If that doesn't work, then use Proxy.

400 bad request


Hi,


What you can do is delete your cookies by going to Tools, and then clicking on Internet Options. It will take you to a separate screen, and one of the buttons says "Delete Cookies." Click on that, and it should work after that.

On firefox :-

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.


Peace,

Every time i get on you tube it says 400 bad request


Hi,

If we talk about 400 bad request error, read the meaning of the same :-

http://www.checkupdown.com/status/E400.html

There might be several reasons :-

1. There server is down at the time when you try to access youtube.
2. Your internet browser might be at fault.
3. Your internet connection might be at fault.
4. Miscellaneous etc.

Now, as you informed me that you are unable to view youtube. Is that always or sometimes?

If everytime, there is an issue from your end.

Try to remove cookies from your browser. Go to tools on the top of our browser>Internet connection

You need to remove all the cookies and then restart your system and check.

If you are using Firefox and windows Vista operating system , check the link below :-

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/216740-firefox-minefield-fix-400-bad-request-youtube-cookie-error.html

General procedure to remove cookies :-

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

Any further help, let me know.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

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.

What web browser are you using? Clearing cookies seems to be the fix for it.

Youtube 400 bad request


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.
