How to Fix YouTube Error 400

YouTube error 400 happens in many situations, when we browse YouTube website on computer, when we use YouTube app on mobiles, and when we open YouTube app on smart TV. So in the following we will list different solutions according to different occasions

SOLUTION 1 – CLEAR THE CACHE AND COOKIES FROM YOUR BROWSER

YouTube 400 Error may happen while you are surfing the video and you send a bad part of the YouTube server in the request, or if the browser tries to use something already cached. Just clear the cache and cookies and restart your system. This may be the solution to your problem.

SOLUTION 2: CHECK FOR ERRORS IN THE URL

The first important thing to check when you encounter a YouTube 400 error is caused by a typo URL (that is, anything other than spelling errors) or that the clicked link is the wrongly formed URL like missed Grammar problems

SOLUTION 3: CHANGE TO INCOGNITO MODE IN YOUR BROWSER / TRY RESETTING BROWSER SETTINGS.

If Youtube is unable to open the video for you, another easy solution will be to enter the incognito mode. While facing “Youtube 400 Error”, going incognito mode can help if there is a problem with your Chrome settings.

  • Try resetting it by going to advanced settings.
  • From the browser’s menu bar, go to settings.
  • At the bottom, you will find advanced expansion options. You will get a reset option at the very end of the advanced settings
  • Click here and confirm the reset.

SOLUTION 4: REINSTALL CHROME

If you try all four of the options above, it’s very unlikely that you will have to take a lot of steps to re-install the Chrome browser, but sometimes extensions or external programs can mess with your browser files. This may cause conflicts or cause file corruption and in such a scenario, installing a new browser is a sure-fire way to get rid of this annoying error every time.

SOLUTION 5: FIX YOUTUBE 400 ERRORS ON PHONES.

“When switching from an Android application that uses the webView and Intent functions to watch YouTube videos with the YouTube app, I get the error “There is a problem with the network [400]”

On this occasion, you can try to sign out of the YouTube app first and then sign in again. If that doesn’t work, you should try the best suggestions. You must replace the YouTube video link directly to be just a video ID. It works every time.
