I have just tried to (re)view a youtube video I last looked at a couple of weeks ago from a link that a friend sent me in an email. On clicking the link I got the message: “This video is private. If the owner of this video has granted you access, please log in.” On clicking the link, I was taken to a google sign in page.
No google, I won’t sign in just to view a youtube video. But walling off bits of the ‘net may yet be your downfall.
