If you’re seeing a 500 internal server error while visiting YouTube today, you’re not alone. The company confirmed via Twitter at 3:27PM ET that channel pages were down, though individual videos could still be watched.

YouTube initially said that the error was only affecting some channels, but it’s since pulled a tweet with that clarification. There don’t seem to be any channels that are still up.

Keep in mind this is only affecting main channel pages. All individual videos are still watchable and accessible. The errors started sometime around 3PM ET, and YouTube says it is working on correcting the issue.

Update April 2nd, 8PM ET: YouTube says it has resolved the error and channel pages are once again available.
