    Youtube Not Working


    Hello everyone,

    So youtube in my devices are not working at all. I have tried different browsers so it is not a problem with any specific browser.
    All other websites just work fine. My internet connection is also working properly. I cannot access youtube videos on the main website, but youtube videos embedded on another websites work flawlessly. Also this problem happens in all the devices connected to my router ,i.e, a laptop and a computer. But youtube app and website both work fine in my smartphone (android) from the same router. This problem has been there for about 2 months now. The website sometimes works spontaneously like for a day in a week but most of the time it is unusable.

    This is what it looks like:

    Home Page

    Click image for larger version
    Any Video Page


    I have been unable to use youtube for a while now so any help is welcome and appreciated.

    Thanks in advance to you all whom i know will definitely solve my problem.

    May want to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider). Could YouTube not be permitted ?

    Just a guess, but perhaps a possible ban can't be enforced on mobile devices. See what your ISP says.
