There are many YouTube user reports encountering the error “Invalid request, expired authentication” when trying to publish one (or more) video on the video sharing platform. The problem is usually reported when the user tries to publish it by publishing the video.

When downloading, do not connect to another Youtube account.

As several users have pointed out, this particular problem can also occur if you have logged into another Google Account from the same computer while downloading the video.

Although we could not find an official explanation for this, users believe that this behavior is probably a Youtube security mechanism to protect against abuse.

As you might expect, the solution in this case is quite simple. You will need to download the video again and make sure you don’t sign in to another Google Account while the video is loading.
