How to Fix the Error
You may encounter the error “YouTube sorry an error occurred your video edits could not be saved” when trying to edit a YouTube video. This can be frustrating, but there are a few things you can do to try and fix the error.
Check Your Internet Connection
Before you start troubleshooting the “sorry, an error occurred” message, make sure that your internet connection is active and working properly. This error can occur if you’re trying to edit a video offline or if your internet connection is weak or intermittent.
If you’re confident that your internet connection is stable and working properly, move on to the next step.
Check for Browser Updates
One of the first things you should do if you’re encountering the “Sorry, an error occurred. Your video edits could not be saved” error on YouTube is to check for browser updates.
If you’re using an outdated browser, that could be the cause of the problem. YouTube currently supports the latest versions of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Apple Safari.
To update Google Chrome, click the three vertical dots in the top-right corner of the browser window and select “Help > About Google Chrome.” The About page will automatically check for updates and prompt you to install them if any are available.
For Mozilla Firefox, click the menu button in the top-right corner of the browser window and select “Help > About Firefox.” The About Firefox page will automatically detect any updates and prompt you to install them if they’re available.
Edge users can check for updates by clicking the three dots in the top-right corner of the browser window and selecting “Settings.” Then, under “App Updates,” click “Check for updates.” If any updates are available, they’ll be downloaded and installed automatically.
Finally, Safari users can check for updates by clicking on the Safari menu at the top of their screen and selecting “Preferences.” Then, under “Software Updates,” make sure that “Check for Updates” is selected.
Check for YouTube App Updates
The first step is to check for updates to the YouTube app. Open the App Store on your iPhone and go to the “Updates” tab at the bottom right corner of the screen. This will show a list of all apps that have updates available. Find the YouTube app in the list and tap on “Update” next to it.
If there is no update available, or updating the YouTube app doesn’t fix the problem, try restarting your iPhone. To do this, hold down the power button on the side of your device until you see a slider appear on your screen. Drag the slider to turn your iPhone off, then turn it back on by holding down the power button again.
After restarting your iPhone, try editing a video on YouTube again. If you’re still seeing the “Sorry, an error occurred. Your video edits could not be saved” error message, move on to the next method below.
