Problems logging in to YouTube

I am unable to sign in via apple to You Tube after explicitly following Google/YouTube instructions to the letter. I still get an error saying “Authentication Failed”. If any one has idea about this solution please help me out.

Did you change your “Google password” somewhere else, like maybe on your phone?

I ran into that same problem sometime ago when I set up Gmail on the phone. I didn’t realise that the Gmail password became my Youtube password.

Somehow or the other I wound up with a Google Plus account too, and I have no idea how.
