Since about last Friday I can't login in YouTube. I've tried to fix it by cleaning the cache and the cookies, but the error shows up every time I login.

If I go to the home page in incognito mode I can see it, but if I try to login I see the error again.

The error message is:

500 Internal Server Error

Sorry, something went wrong.

A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.

If you see them, show them this information:

Already tried logging in with Firefox and Chrome and it shows the error in any of this browsers. If I login with a different account (Google Apps) all works fine fine.

  • Do you have any browser extensions installed? Try disabling them. – Vidar S. Ramdal Feb 19 '14 at 12:16
  • Also try with a different browser. – ale Feb 19 '14 at 12:53
  • I have the same problem with Firefox (I was using Chrome before), all extensions are disabled and I did after deleting the cookies and the cache. – Osvaldo Feb 19 '14 at 15:35
  • check for proxy – Pranay Bhardwaj Feb 19 '14 at 20:45
  • Thanks @Neo Surprisingly it works fine if I login with my Google Apps account... – Osvaldo Feb 19 '14 at 20:50

500 Internal Server Error means just that: Something went wrong on the server-side, not your fault. Waiting for a day or so typically solves it, if it doesn't, go to the official help forums and give them the following information:

  • Your channel URL
  • What you're trying to do (in this case: Log in)
  • The full error message, ie the full block of the "random" numbers and letters as text (not as screenshot).
