    Yeah, suspect EMBC have just URL blocked. Our staff pointed this out to us as they'd just been googling the link and going direct

    This is due to the new 'Youtube for Schools' I believe. Try going to youtube.com/videos. Works for us here.

    I doubt/hope that isn't the case - I'd say EMBC (or anyone) would be fairly obliged to inform anyone of such a change.

    Netwseeper seems to be causing issues. We're on Netsweeper here and are having issues with it, and lots of other Netsweeper users are having issues too (there's another thread discussing it here - YouTube for Schools launched)

    There's mention of EMBC in there from @GrumbleDook

    I was just looking at the tube of you, to see if we have the same problem.

    OMG, Youtube is hideous now.


    Any clue on how to trigger the error? I was just hurping and durping around the site and it all seems fine here.

    Go to youtube.co.uk if you get the auth error... or any video link directly and it'll work

    We are near Preston and have the same error as well, was working the other day. They have updated the homepage, so probably something to do with that.

    It is a general fault and being investigated and EMBC have not made any changes to allow for YouTube for Schools yet ... so not likely to be linked to that unless Google have changed something their end.

    At least it wasn't on a particularly productive week Flicking through all the classrooms remotely and playing "guess the film" was at least entertaining!
