I swear that I was able to sign into a separate Youtube account (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Gmail (email@example.com) yesterday. I know this because I constantly check gmail and youtube (where I never really sign out/ never really remember signing out).
Because of the service changes months back with the whole
- Cannot change username
- Cannot unlink accounts
I thought my solution by signing with my custom (i.e. university) address would solve the trick and it for a while. Now today I cannot get back this trick.
This question is not about linking. This question is about getting a youtube account (I know I could do this with youtube account pre google acquisition) and a gmail session running at the same time under different usernames.
Solutions I am not looking for
- Use two different browsers / windows
- Just don't sign into youtube (I have subscriptions that I follow closely)
