While I am trying to access youtube using chrome 22.0.1229.94 m(I am on windows 7), I am getting the following error,

<wml><card id="error" title="Error"><p> Service Unavailable, Please try later</p></card></wml>

I can access youtube using IE and FF.

My question is purely from a technical standpoint,

What's the meaning of this error? and how can I solve it?

wml...? do you have some kind of mobile emulator/extension or something else that would make youtube think you're using a mobile phone? – eis Oct 15 '12 at 12:24

Some chrome extension is probably changing your request so that you're asking for mobile content..

One possibility is that you're running the user-agent switcher. You can check what user agent you're sending with It should show something like Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/22.0.1229.94 Safari/537.4 for regular chrome in windows 7 in 64-bit environment.

You can check which extensions you have from menu -> settings -> extensions.

whatsmyuseragent result - Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/22.0.1229.94 Safari/537.4 Here is a list of plugins that I am using. I tried again and even in Incognito, I am getting the same error. – iamcreasy Oct 15 '12 at 20:20
um, didn't you just tell in another comment that you don't get the error there? – eis Oct 15 '12 at 20:59
Yeh, I tried later and it wasn't working. Deleting my comment to avoid confusion. – iamcreasy Oct 16 '12 at 11:48
