Reasons: Why YouTube Vanced Throw Error “The Following Content is Not Available”
People are reporting the problem on YouTube Vanced while playing video with error saying “The Following Content is Not Available on this App. Watch on the Latest Version of YouTube”.
The main reason for this problem is that YouTube Vanced has discontinued its services, the original YouTube app has made many app updates over the past year.
The YT Vanced app is not able to load videos because several changes have been made to the original YouTube app. On the other side, the Vanced team is not able to match with the changes made to the original app.
Besides that, there could be other several causes. They are as follows:
Server Down: There have been reports from the users that there have been some server-side updates from YouTube which made the sudden video not available on the vanced app.
Location Restrictions: Some content is restricted to view in some countries, states, cities, regions or locations due to legal or licensing problems. If you are trying to view content from a restricted place, then you may encounter such an issue.
Content Restricted To Age: Some contents are available to users who meet the required age. If you have been logged in with an account that is not age-verified then you may not be able to see content.
Technical Issue: Weak internet connection, server problems or outdated app, may avoid the video from playing or loading properly.
