How to unlink your YouTube and Google accounts

This little problem had been bugging me for a while. I got myself a new e-mail address with G-Mail and wanted to link it with my existing YouTube account but I could not find anywhere to unlink my old G-Mail account from YouTube in order to link it again with my new one! (I hope that made sense).

A quick search revealed many other people with the same issue and finally I stumbled across this on the YouTube website which solved all my problems: http://www.youtube.com/my_account_unlink.

Google is planning on phasing out the old YouTube accounts by forcing people to link their existing YouTube accounts with a Google account, users will then have to login to YouTube using their Google account details. This Google account will then act as a master account for all of Google’s services including G-Mail and YouTube.

Thanks for reading.
