For a while I got periodic messages on YouTube telling me to move my account to Google Plus and to change the name. Ever since I made that change I can no longer login to YouTube. I get the following error message: error screen

Which says "You are not eligible to create an account" and "Sorry, your login was incorrect".

This situation is very frustrating. I wish I never decided to change my YouTube account name! Does anyone here know how to fix this situation so that I can login to YouTube normally (like I could before the account name change).

My first suggestion is to go to the google login page like https://www.google.com/accounts/ and log in, and then go to http://www.youtube.com . Since you linked your account it should automatically showed you as logged in.

  • Also, please tell me what happens with these steps: 1) Can you login to google.com/accounts 2) Are you using a username or email to login to youtube.com
