    Default YouTube video "Unavailable" on this device (Firefox Desktop!)

    Just tried to watch the following video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fg9QiqGKV3E

    I get the error "This video is unavailable on this device."
    So does my friend, who tested it as well.

    This makes no sense.
    We are both on modern desktop PCs, myself on Linux with the latest Firefox, him on Windows 10 with, I'm sure, an up-to-date browser also.

    Is Google now blocking certain videos on desktops?

    Didn't work on my win 10 laptop using FF and it didn't when I tried Edge either

    Interesting, my Firefox is version 100 now. Wonder if there's some triple-digit version number bug going on?

    I had that error as well.

    Then I updated Firefox to the newer version
    Now your link works without issues
    Strange

    May have been a fault at YouTubes end. ?? Tried the original link again just now, the same three browsers that didn't want to work this morning are now working Fine. (Edge, FF, And Brave) And as a lot of my customers say " I didn't touch or do anything"

    Seems like it, it works now for me as well, and I haven't changed anything here. Must have been some glitch with that particular video.
