Cannot paste youtube links on MSN chats?

Question

Bryan84    1

Can you still paste the full link of youtube on your MSN conversation with friends?

I thought I was the only one but my friend can't too.

* The following message could not be delivered to all recipients:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtFMylC41VU

only when i removed the "www" and paste "youtube.com/watch?v=dtFMylC41VU" then it works.

Okay seriously WTF. This is starting to become utter bullcrap on MS's end. I just typed in 'www.youtube.com' and it's blocked.

I honestly hope it's not some hidden plan to block access to competitors' services under the disguise of 'oops, something's wrong with the network.'

edit: We're not the only ones: Click here.

I'm sick of them blocking ****. There should be an option "I'm smarter than the average bear, I'll protect myself, I don't need you to do it, now leave me alone"

Happened very very recently. I imagine it must be a temporary mistake of some kind. Surely they wouldn't block youtube, right?
