Signing up to YouTube - impossible?

  simonjary 10:53 20 Jun 2008

I've just tried to sign up to YouTube, and it appears to be impossible from the UK.

I fill in all the boxes but it demands "Please select a valid post code" ...

Trouble is, there's no box to do so.

US residents do get a box to fill in for their ZIP code but UK has no post code box.

Any ideas?

Yes, maybe it's a browser thing but the postcode box simply disappears in Firefox and Safari, and we've tried on PC and Mac.

The only problem I had with signing up a few months back was finding a username it would accept. It seems just about everyting I could think of had been taken.

Well I have just tried to Signup again using a different email address, password and user name.

No go, it is as simonjary says. Please enter a valid Postcode.

Youtube belongs to Google now, but how do you contact Google by email?

I have contacted YouTube's press offcie in the US, so hope to get a reply soon.

Didn't believe it, so tried it - how bizarre!

Where's the box to put in the post-code? How can it check if there's not a box to put it in - it will allways be invalid?
