FIXED! You can unlink your YOUTUBE from Google+ and revert to your original YOUTUBE user name.
Deleting Google+ just reactivates when you want to comment on youtube etc. Go to http://www.youtube.com/account
In the left there are oprtion, you can find out how to revert to your regular old youtube login before google monopolized the scene.

"You have connected your YouTube channel to your Google+ profile. If you no longer wish to have these videos associated with your profile, you can disconnect accounts in your YouTube settings."

YouTube operates as a subsidiary of Google, which owns Google plus. If you register with YouTube, it is not a must for you to join Google plus, as much as both of them are connected. Google plus has its own sign up requirements and YouTube has its own requirements.

I am having the same problem you should be able to make seperate accounts for google plus and youtube. However I have invested over an hour trying to figure make a youtube account. It seems that they made google plus and youtube even more intertwined about 2 weeks ago. That option is either heavily buried or nonexistent. I am trying to make a youtube channel and don't feel like I would be legit without a real youtube username. Any confirmed information on this matter would be very much appreciated from me.

Go onto your Google+ Account Settings, scroll down and it should say something about deleting your Google+ profile, click on it and select the last option. Press ok and it should come up with a page saying why you want to leave google+. Type something in and press ok.
Then re log in on YouTube and then set up you channel, you can then choose a username! Hope this has helped!

That doesn't help. It then tells me that I can't upload videos until I join Google+.

Ok, After I deleted my G+ Profile, my Youtube account is still there. Neither can I chose a user name nor can I comment on any video but I can still like and add videos to the playlist.

Google plus explains it all here, and is works! :) http://support.google.com/nonprofits/answer/1669368?hl=en when it talks about typing in your name, click on the bit that says choose a business or other name. Hope this helps :)

Sorry brotha, this isn't getting me anywhere, this does not explain how to fix this problem, all it is saying is to how to create an accountor howto login nothing more, I cannot login after I disconnected my Google+ account from my youtube account. Are they trying to pissing people off even more. This is by far the worst. Whats next Youtube??? If they find out that people are moving there videos to other Video Hosting sites then they might delete your account all together. Communism I tell ya

As of October 1st you can create a youtube account without google plus, but now you cannot save videos or comment or add any videos to your youtube account, unless you agree to be forced to have a google plus account, there is no way out, it is a musrt. I guess I will be looking elsewhere for my entertainment. You can keep deleting that google plus, but every time you use something on youtube, they will force you to take google plus.

If you want an account with a custom name go to http://www.youtube.com/channel_switcher?next=%2F
then you type the name you want and fill out the other things in it and your done.
