If you cannot see any videos on YouTube at the moment then this is because of a widespread fault with the system. Google is hopefully on the case, fixing the issue now.
Latest updates from the Twittersphere:
- sillysaucepan: I can’t watch any youtube videos. FML. Twitter – 14 minutes ag

I only noticed as I was editing a webpage with a YouTube video embedded and the URL was showing, instead of the video. I went to Youtube and although I can see the video thumbs none play.
One interesting thing is that I have a video open in another browser (a one hour presentation by Marissa Meyer, Google Search) and that still works.
I am sure it will all be working soon, and that Google has not deleted everyone’s videos in a crazy server malfunction.
