Update 2: We just received a statement from a YouTube spokesperson:
“Some users encountered errors, or a slower than normal experience on YouTube today. Our engineers worked quickly to address the issue and fixed the problem within minutes. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this caused our users.”
Update: It’s back, in time for the call.

We’ve reached out to Google for comment, and will update if and when we receive a response.
