Anyone any idea of what's going on here?

I was going to post this the other day, but it seemed to have sorted itself out.  It hasn't, so (a picture painting not quite a 1000 words):

The same notice appears for other linked youtube videos in the thread too.Smiley Indifferent

Re: Anyone any idea of what's going on here?

It looks like:

1. Youtube is using Cloudflare for DDOS protection.

2. They don't like something about your IP.

I see the page as below

Re: Anyone any idea of what's going on here?

there was a thread in here somewhere about cloudfare issues in the past couple of days.
might be something to do with that, can't find the thread though.

Re: Anyone any idea of what's going on here?

BTW - I hate the word scientifically impossible!

Science looks for explanations for natural phenomena.  So if some places can't be explained by current science, then we need to look at asking different questions in order to come up with the answers.

Off topic I know but I just couldn't help myself. 😉

Re: Anyone any idea of what's going on here?

yeah "scientifically impossible places that exist" makes no sense.
if it exists then it IS scienfiically possible. it's just that the person looking at it isn't intelligent enough to understand why it's possible.

Re: Anyone any idea of what's going on here?

I was down the 'tubes last night and watched several videos without any problems, so I find this puzzling.  I thought it was "fixed" as some videos I'd linked to now/did show up correctly.  On the Gamer's Nexus channel it was mentioned that he was having problems uploading videos to the site. 

[edit] Was this the thread referred to above?  No, it wasn't.  There we go, I'm answering my own question.  Maybe I'm scientifically impossible and should read things properly.  Although it could be related...

That's unusual, some info at the cloudflare site https://community.cloudflare.com/t/403-forbidden-cloudflare/23798

Just a thought do you have cloudflare set for your DNS? that would indicate something broken at cloudflare

It's back again.  I'm not using cloudflare as DNS, but I believe it to be their problemSmiley Indifferent.

Re: Anyone any idea of what's going on here?

Tried Chrome just now; works fine.  Looks like it's a problem with Edge...

A search suggested that it could be something to do with HTTPS or HTTP.  http://support.proboards.com/thread/647826/403-forbidden-cloudflare
