I am not able to Like or Dislike comments on YouTube videos.

The buttons appear but when I click them there is no highlighted green thumbs up. I've tested liking a comment on one of my videos that was unlisted with a friend and it still didn't work.

I can Like or Dislike videos it just seems to be comment that are an issue.

Does anyone know what this problem could be?

When you like a comment on Youtube, unlike when you like an actual video, the like registers, but does not actually display (presumably while it undergoes security measures to ensure the like was valid). Don't worry: it is working.

  • A while back I tested liking a users comment who commented on one of my videos. I waited little and checked back and the comment still had no likes. This was a while back so I will try again and report back if this is true. Commented Jul 19, 2012 at 15:45
  • Okay I tested it and I do not see it appearing yet that the comment was liked. The little thumb icon highlights but I do not see that the like count has been increased. Commented Jul 19, 2012 at 16:27
