I need to be able to log into Youtube with a command button in Ms Access. I have done this with other sites but Youtube i am having a problem. I either dont have the control name right or something else is wrong. I have attached the code, I took out the real user and password.  
Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim User As String
Dim password As String
Dim site As String
Dim objIE As Object
Dim strSql As String
Dim ClientLoginAddress As String
username = "user"
password = "password"

YouTubeAddress = "https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?uilel=3&service=youtube&passive=true&continue=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fsignin%3Faction_handle_signin%3Dtrue%26nomobiletemp%3D1%26hl%3Den_US%26next%3D%252Findex&hl=en_US&ltmpl=sso"
site = YouTubeAddress
Set objIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
 
    With objIE
    .visible = True
    .Navigate site
        Do While .ReadyState <> 4
            DoEvents
        Loop
 
        With .Document.Forms(1)
            .username.Value = username
            .password.Value = password
            .submit.Click
            
            End With
    End With
End Sub

You need to refer the controls by their ID's.

Here is the code which is tested and tried :)

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim UserName As String, password As String, YouTubeAddress As String
    Dim objIE As Object
    
    UserName = "User"
    password = "Password"
    
    YouTubeAddress = "https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?uilel=3&service=youtube&passive=true&continue=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fsignin%3Faction_handle_signin%3Dtrue%26nomobiletemp%3D1%26hl%3Den_US%26next%3D%252Findex&hl=en_US&ltmpl=sso"
    Set objIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
    With objIE
        .Visible = True
        .Navigate YouTubeAddress
        Do While .ReadyState <> 4
            DoEvents
        Loop
        With .Document
            .getelementbyid("Email").Value = UserName
            .getelementbyid("Passwd").Value = password
            .getelementbyid("signIn").Click
        End With
    End With
End Sub
