    I have the same problem, created my account with a hotmail email address, uploaded loads of videos, then when google bought youtube, afterwards they dropped support for hotmail users and asked everyone to switch to a google account. The problem was that they didn't transfer any videos to the new account, as a result I have loads of videos that I cannot delete or moderate the comments for because when I try to log in, it doesn't recognize the email because it's hotmail, not gmail. Of course, I created a new gmail account but all the content, comments and ratings are completely separate to the old account so it doesn't help by saying things like "just create a google account". It's like if you had a bank account with $4,000,000 inside and the bank doesn't recognize you pin and someone saying "Just open another account". Sure, good idea, but what's the point if you can't transfer your money from the old account to the new one!? Even linking an account doens't give you access to upload new videos or moderate the comments, it's completely pointless. I've lost two accounts with loads of important videos because of this and it seems like the channels will just be up there, in Limbo, forever and unrecoverable. Seems like most people on here are fairly new to youtube, hence comments like "you can't create a youtube account with a hotmail address" and "Duh - google don't allow you to use hotmail addresses" etc.

    I did the same thing, my youtube account was created with a hotmail address BEFORE gmail came about and bought youtube. Then they stopped people using youtube if they had a hotmail address so most of the old (legacy) videos you see on youtube cannot be accessed by their rightful owners any more. That's why no-on replies to commentson older videos any more or deletes out of date videos - because they cannot access the account any more, they just had to make new google accounts and lose their old work.

    You can still but you should make Hotmail or Yahoo email addresses into Google accounts before you can proceed. As you can see email now comes with a new Google account as standard but that you can remove it from the Google account once you have created it and then your preferred email (Hotmail or Yahoo) becomes the email username of the Google account.

    Just create a Gmail address and add it your existing account.

    I can't log into the existing account because it was created with a hotmail email address before google bought it out and dropped support for hotmail login.

    To use all services controlled and maintained by Google, you must have one google id, which can be used into any Google related services.

    Thanks in advance !!
