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

Peace,
B
Internet Explorer 7:

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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!

400 BAD REQUEST error


This appears to be a communication problem between the YouTube server and cookies. Since deleting all cookies hasn't worked, try reducing the privacy level on your browser (Tools/Internet Options/Privacy tab). Maybe this is set too high. Medium setting should be OK unless you have high security issues.

If that doesn't work try changing to another browser ie if using Firefox then switch to Internet Explorer.

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.

Clear cookies and all other private data. You do not have to clear the passwords, just the cookies.

This should solve your access problem.
