YouTube & Google are giving me a hard time! (For the first time)


Unlink my YouTube Account from a Google Account

This may be out of topic for branding, but has something to do with Social Media. Let me explain: To get into my YouTube account I log in with my Gmail account. What I found inconvenient and somehow annoying is that if I log into another YouTube account (from any of my clients or the one from work) I get logged off my Gmail account, being unable to use my eMail services. Sometimes I need to use both as the same time, but i can’t! I found this frustrating, and not practical.

I look up for a way to unlink the accounts, and found a way to do it on Google’s youtube support page. http://www.google.com/support/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=183819 the only problem is that once that the accounts are unliked, Youtube immediately asks you to link the account to an e-mail address. the following message appears. Please relink your YouTube Account to a new or existing Google Account. Well ….I just have ONE Google acount.

Please Google, I only have one Google account and want to keep it that way. I just want to log into my clients Youtube account or the company’s Youtube account without being logged off from my Gmail. Am i doing something wrong?

    You can use 2 different browsers, in one you keep your personal email (Goggle) account and in the other browser you can login with your other (work) account…

    Thanks for the Advice, I will try that, I guess it is the thing to do, even if it is not a permanent solution.

    I wonder if Google will come out with a way to log in to Youtube without merging the accounts automatically.

    Still haven’t solve this issue. No one can seem to know how to manage the accounts.
