I am absolutely distraught. Some of my best hubs contain youtube videos. I have found that anyone logged into hubpages can see my videos without any problem. Today my Dad happened to be looking at my hubs and said "there are no videos here". Stunned, I went onto hubpages and logged out of my account to see what the pages look like to everyone else. Incredibly, the videos are gone when I log out! I've been completely unaware of this, and I'm very annoyed at hubpages for not making it clear this would happen.
I just checked and they only disappear for my "Top 10" football hubs where I put a youtube video for each entry in the top 10 (so 10 videos). In hubs with only 1 video, that video appears fine. Is there a limit on the number of youtube videos you can use, and if so, why wasn't I told?!?!?!
What the hell...I just checked one of my hubs with 5 videos in it. They're all missing. Needless to say, I'm not happy. I've got no idea why this is happening, but I can only assume it's a bug. Hopefully it'll get fixed sharpish.
Yep, you seem to have the same problem. I logged out and went to your "The Killers" hub, and all the videos that had been there were gone, so no-one other than hubpages users can see them.
So we've established the maximum embedded videos is somewhere between 1 and 4.
I don't think this is a bug because my recipe hub with 1 video in (Tuna and Avocado Wraps) works fine when I log out. It seems that someone on hubpages has set an arbitrary limit on the number of videos you can use, and not told anyone (as far as I know).
Although I'm not sure why hubpages users can see 5 or 10 videos, but no-one else can.
I'm inclined to think it's some sort of bug for 2 reasons. Firstly, I've never read anything from HP about there being a limit to the number of videos. It seems like something they'd tell us, especially when we tried to put 5 or more videos in a hub. Secondly, I've seen hubs in the past with up to 10 videos. No problems there.
Hi Thomas, I emailed the staff this morning so will just await their reply since the issue hasn't been fixed. I expect it has affected far more hubbers than just us three on this thread, they are probably just unaware.
I just randomly checked some hubs in the entertainment category. They were described as music hubs with videos, but no videos are showing so I guess they have the same problem. My hubs look worse because I tend to put titles on the video capsules, so you can now see the title without the video. It's very tacky and confusing for readers. Still, I'm sure it will be sorted soon.
Thomas - Please thank your dad for the heads up from the Hub community. This is a big problem. Most of mine have gone, and my hubs depend on the video being there to make sense. Only the youtube ones seem affected (most but not all of them for some reason). The Hubpages video hubs seem fine. As I don't know how long this will continue, I've started editing the affected hubs by supplying the Youtube link along with this notice:
IMPORTANT Due to a temporary technical issue on HubPages, the video below may not be visible. If you can't see the video, click the link below to see it on Youtube.
Are you sure it's not a browser issue? I had trouble on Mac when Safari made some changes a while back & had to tweak things (can't remember what just now). I viewed some videos on my hubs just a while ago today.
Hope the problem has been resolved for you - with all the updates & changes here, it is indeed stressful.
Definitely not a browser issue (tried IE and Chrome). Is your video a youtube video? If yes, did you log out before viewing the hub with the video? For some reason the youtube videos show up when we're logged into hubpages. When we're not logged in (like any visitor to hubpages who's found your hub in google), the videos are simply not there. The hub comes up minus the vids.
It seems that the only people who can see youtube videos on hubs are people signed into hubpages.
Not sure where tech support is on hubpages, but I just jetted off an email through the "contact us" link. TBH, I was expecting staff to read this forum thread, but it's been 2 days now, so emails away!
I noticed the problem today too when I logged out. At the time I was on Firefox and there were no videos on the few hubs I checked. Then I switched over to IE and the videos were all there so back to Firefox and they were gone.
Are others having the problem with Firefox or another browser?
