YouTube is down across the world and many people across the globe are panicking as they try to get their video fix.
Videos are not playing on the website and are showing an error message asking people to return later.
YouTube posted on Twitter to say that it was aware of the issues and working to resolve them.
People are taking to social media to react over the outage and the hashtag #YouTubeDOWN is trending on Twitter.
A live map shows YouTube outage hotspots across the United States; the northeast is hit particularly hard. Facebook also appears to be down for users in Australia and New Zealand.
It looks as though the outage began at around 2pm.
We at Flava have been affected as well with many of our videos posted from YouTube also not playing, so hang in there!
