YouTube goes down: MedUX impact assessment

  • YouTube went down between midnight and 2AM UTC on Thursday, November 12th, 2020, which severely impacted streaming customer experience.

MedUX technology detected the YouTube outage, which has left millions of users worldwide without access to the video streaming platform, including YouTube TV, YouTube Music & YouTube Kids as well. 

Many of today’s digital applications come from OTT service providers, but if the services do not perform to the required level of quality, then it is usually the network and the Telecommunication operators delivering the application that are blamed.

In some cases YouTube displayed an error message, stating that “An error occurred. Please try again later. (Playback ID: [alphanumeric string]) Learn more).” As of now it’s not clear yet what the root cause of the issue was but we have determined the customer experience impact. 

MedUX presents an overview of our analysis and impact assessment of the service disruption from the end-user perspective, which significantly impacted customer experience, very specially in the Americas region. The service disruption occurred during the start of prime viewing time (peak hours) in several American countries, and has generated a lot of complaints on social media.
