This is the address: http://www.youtube.com/
If you are trying to get into anything other than this, it is not right.
If you think that you are using this URL and not getting in because of cookies, then you should go into IE - or whichever browser you are using - and clean out all cookies, Internet Temp files, etc., and start fresh, again, using this: http://www.youtube.com/ to get where you want to go.
Any other address, or URL, is incorrect.
Also, do a check for viruses, for malware, like spyware and things of that nature. Use Lavasoft's free product, AdAware, or use Microsoft's products, or Norton's free checkers. There are a large number of free checkers, to ensure your PC is clear of malware, so run those checkers then try it again: http://www.youtube.com/

Good luck.

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 requeston youtube! this is making me realy upsept. i dont just want to know the salution i want to find out why it keeps going 400 bad request


For some very odd reason, it seems that 9 out
of 10 error messages like this deal with Firefox.

If "Your browser sent a request that this server
could not understand", plus "Size of a request
header field exceeds server limit", that strange
request may be a bad or unusually big cookie.
(The same thing is true for "Error 400" codes.)

Simply clear all of your cookies and everything
should be fine. Don't worry about getting rid of
them; absolutely nothing bad will happen. You
won’t lose your internet browser's "Bookmarks"
or "Favorites". The worst-case scenario is that
you will have to type your username/password
again when you first revisit YouTube and a few
other websites -- that's all.

While you're erasing your cookies, you should
also be deleting your "temporary internet files"
and "history" to get them out of your computer
memory, and make everything fresh. After that,
it is probably better if you shutdown and reboot.

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

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 :-

I've 400 bad request from utube


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,

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.

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".
