My YouTube account, which I use actively (both for watching and posting videos), is currently associated with my old AOL address. When I sign in to YouTube, that's what I use in the "username" field.
I just got a new Google account, which I am trying to centralize everything around. It is associated with a single Gmail account.
I'm trying to re-associate my YouTube account to this new address. However, trying to change it via the "Email Options" tab of the "Account Settings" page redirects me here. After submitting
MyFancyAddress@gmail.com, it tells me that "a Gmail address isn't allowed to be the primary address of this account."
Is there any way around this, other than making a whole new YouTube account? I don't want to throw away all my favorites and subscriptions, and I don't want to lose any subscribers.
