Google+ and YouTube (SOLVED)
« on: September 13, 2014, 05:12:59 am »
I really enjoy using YouTube but have continually failed to post a comment to some of the channels i am subscribed to. I know it's something to do with Google+ but it is driving me off my rocker lol. Does anyone here know of an easy to follow tutorial so as to help out an old fella please.

You'll probably have to provide more info.....

What makes you suspect it's G+ related ?

How are you attempting to comment .. via G+ in some way ?

Are you signed in to your google account when attempting to post .. and are the Youtube and G+ accounts the same google account ?

What happens when you attempt to post .. is there some kind of error/message returned ?

I am in the process of trying to learn Bash Shell Scripting and i wanted to be able to post comments on the scripting channel i am subscribed to. I log into YouTube and try to link my YouTube account with Google+ but at each and every attempt i have made i fail. I have even disabled the likes of Adblock Plus and Ghostery but still no good. On the verge of giving up now.

Give it a shot in Firefox .. it wouldn't be the first time Google products and services haven't played well together .. but really this sounds more like an issue you'd need to take up with Google as they own both services.

You might try emptying the Chrome/Chromium cache .. but beyond that it sounds more like a problem at google's end.

Firefox is my default browser and i would only use Chrome/Chromium if it was absolutely necessary. Thanks for the help and advice PCNetSpec

Thanks for the solution .. maybe it's a problem with the latest Firefox then, the last time I posted anything on Youtube was ages ago.

And thanks for marking the topic solved :)
