Youtube down for web users

Youtube has become unavailable in the last few minutes as we have received reports that our video embeds across our network have stopped working.

After logging on directly to Youtube the same Server 500 error appears. It is not yet known what the cause of the outage is. We have checked that our servers are working properly. If you are trying to access Youtube content on Film Industry Network and are unable to view any content or receive an error, this is being caused by an external outage.

This is a developing story..please read below for updates.

Youtube website currently displays an error:
