In yet another outage this year, Google-owned video service YouTube suffered a serious downtime in the early hours of Wednesday. YouTube has had similar issues in the past, but they aren't common and rarely last as long as Tuesday's - more than 50 minutes. YouTube acknowledged the outage in a tweet at 9:41 p.m. EDT, noting that it affected YouTube, YouTube Music and YouTube TV.

YouTube video service went down late Tuesday night for more than an hour, sending the online community into a tizzy.

"We're back! Thanks for all your patience", it said on Twitter. "We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated", Team YouTube posted. "If you continue to experience issues, please let us know", tweeted Team You Tube. The company said it is "working on resolving this".

According to user reports and outage-monitoring sites, the YouTube outages began sometime around 9pm on the east coast of the United States and 11am in Sydney.
