Introduction
The Web server (running the Web site) thinks that the data stream sent by the client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) was 'malformed' i.e. did not respect the HTTP protocol completely. So the Web server was unable to understand the request and process it.

It almost always means bad programming of the client system and/or the Web server. 

400 errors in the HTTP cycle

Any client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) goes through the following cycle:
Obtain an IP address from the IP name of the site (the site URL without the leading 'http://'). This lookup (conversion of IP name to IP address) is provided by domain name servers (DNSs). 
Open an IP socket connection to that IP address. 
Write an HTTP data stream through that socket. 
Receive an HTTP data stream back from the Web server in response. This data stream contains status codes whose values are determined by the HTTP protocol. Parse this data stream for status codes and other useful information. 

This error occurs in the final step above when the client receives an HTTP status code it recognises as '400'.

Fixing 400 errors - general

There is a low-level program bug in the client or the Web server or both. If you do not have access to the source code for these systems, the only thing you can do is refer the problem to technical support people at the companies that developed the systems.

Fixing 400 errors - CheckUpDown

You should never see this error at all when you use our CheckUpDown service. It indicates that the two systems (our robot and the Web server) fundamentally disagree on the syntax of HTTP data streams.

Please contact us directly (email preferred) whenever you encounter 400 errors. Only we can resolve them for you. Unfortunately this may take some time, because we have to analyse the underlying HTTP data streams and may have to liaise with your ISP and the vendor of the Web server software to agree the exact source of the error.

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.

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,

I wanne have youtube searching without any problem


okay when you go to search it gives you as you say 400 request but you select what you want.
unless you want to change some sittings.
After you sign up, next to your name is your ACCOUNT click on it and in Customize the Homepage   you can select what you want others to see you can change it at any time. When you done click SAVE CHANGE .
When you done select HOME and thats it.
Your Ratings  is very important to me Was this helpful?

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.
