So, my college switched over to Gmail accounts for their email, so now my YouTube tries to log me onto my college email, which then tells me that it failed, because of administrative restrictions, and then it lets me sign into another account. When I do that, it puts me back onto YouTube and tells me to do that same thing. It's like a never ending cycle of it trying to log onto my college email. Dunno why. Any help?

Are you using Chrome that you have synced to your gmail account? If so log out of Chrome.

Using Firefox.

Also, I should clarify - after I get the notice saying that there are administrative restrictions, it tells me I am signed onto two accounts (My college and my personal) and then tells me to log-in. When I log in, it brings me to my settings page of GMail. Upon loading YouTube and attempting to sign in, it once again tries to log on to my college email.

What are you trying to do? Just sign into Youtube with whatever e-mail you want to use.
Why are you always smiling?
'Cause it's all so ****in' hysterical.

That's what I am trying to do. It will not let me. When I click the sign in button, it tries to auto-load my college email. Then after that...

When you go to gmail does it automatically sign you in? If you're signed into gmail it might store that for when you try to sign into youtube.

Have you tried signing OUT of your college email first?

Heh, I figured that just not signing into my college email would keep me signed out, but it looks like if I sign into my college account, it auto signs me into the email program. So I got that sorted out. Now I just have to figure out how to make it so I don't get signed out of YouTube every time I sign into my college account. >_>

You can sign into multiple accounts for Gmail. Click on the dropdown arrow next to your picture ID and just add another account.
