This video is restricted. Try signing in with a G Suite account error 1 Recommended Answer 1076 Replies 7624 Upvotes

When I try to watch certain videos I get the message 'This video is restricted. Try signing in with a G Suite account.' a few details...

It happens in Chrome and Firefox on Windows 10
It happens both for my personal Google account and my work G Suite account (I tested both)
It happens primarily when I click on a link from a search result and sometimes the videos work if I am in YouTube already and search from there (not always)
I have ensured that restricted Mode is off

Slightly off topic - my daughter got the message when i sent her a link from my phone (Android) to her phone (iOS).

Anyone know why? I cannot find a satisfactory answer anywhere else but I can see others are experiencing it, so assuming there is no fix - could it be Google trying to force people into using YouTube premium (tin hat time)?

Any help very much appreciated

Thanks,

Stephen

I have same issue when casting from my iPhone to our Roku TV.  Video plays fine on my phone but when the TV tries to pull up the video it says “this video is restricted. Try signing in with a G Suite account.”  I don’t have restricted mode set on my account and when I go to settings on both my phone and the roku app both say restricted mode is off.  Not sure what’s going on but it’s super annoying.
