When ever I try to comment I get an error.

 

 

"We weren't able to add your reply. Please try again."

 

Or I get

 

"Error try again"

 

Is the problem on YouTube's end? I never commented anything bad.

Here's what I found

 

If you want to comment now, you'll have to use either your existing Google+ account (which you likely linked to YouTube recently when Google did a large merge of accounts) or create a YouTube channel with a new name. ... It may help to think of "channel" as another name for a YouTube-specific account.

Once Google decided to retire Google Plus, YouTube set a new requirement for comments. One can neither comment nor reply to same or enter live chat unless you create an actual YouTube channel. You don’t need to upload videos to it, but owning a channel is now necessary for social interaction on YouTube.

I have a Google Account and I was able to comment before, it just stopped working. As far as I know my account is in good standing.

I can SEE comments I just can't post them. I also can't subscribe to channels saying I am logged out when I am logged in.

That seems to be related to Youtube. Some users has change to their older layout of YouTube as a temporary solution that worked for them.

I tried to do their method and the option looks so different, maybe I just have no clue what I am doing. I tried two extensions too, nothing. I don't know what to do.
