Ok, I have two google accounts / mail accounts.
One I've been using for years and has almost a GB of mails and lots of stuff connected to it. The second one I just created but has a more desirable mail address.
I want to connect YouTube to the second account, easy right?
Well, no. My YouTube account is associated with my old Google account (oldie from now on), so there's no way to connect it to the new account (newbie from now on).
This brings a boatfull of awkward problems. For instance, I tried activating multi-sign in from Google Accounts, that's fine, I can see both gmail accounts, but if oldie is not loaded as the default account, I can't log into YouTube without disconnecting newbie. I can't seem to change this either. No matter how hard I try, I can't accomplish having newbie as the default account, and being logged into YouTube and oldie.
Anyone has come through this weird situation where you can disassociate a YouTube account from a Google Account? The only "option" that I have would be to delete oldie permanently, but that's not even close to being a real answer, since I used that mail address for years and I have far more services hooked up to it than just YouTube (feedburner, gTalk, blogger, calendar, social networks, etc).
I'd love a solution for this, or at least a reasonable explanation as to why this is happening. I feel so lonely here.
The weird thing is, I'm not even sure a Google Account can have a primary email address other than a gmail address...
