Hi as I am not in here very often lately (worst luck) I have noticed that all my utube videos are all becoming broken links. Does any one know why this happens.
If this has bee asked before sorry as I said I can not get on internet very much lately.
Sometimes YouTube users choose to remove a video and sometimes a media company orders YouTube to "clean house" on a particular topic.
I'm trying to diversify more with my video offerings, using videos from the various options that HubPages allows, as that helps cut down on having all the videos on a Hub suddenly become unavailable.
The broken links report makes it pretty easy to keep track of any broken video links.
O no ... we have to worry bout the videos we use on our sites now? o no! (running amok now) lol
Another thing I have been doing is making my own videos, which means these will always be there. Of course my videos are not high tech or sophisticated, but on my how-to hubs I can show what crafts I am making, which is a great visual. I also am able to put a link to my particular hub in the video description when I do this.
YouTube is fast becoming copyright police and rightfully so, I come across hundreds of videos clips with music from known artists who have not given any rights to the every day Joe and the clips are removed, I think that if you are going into your youtube account often, you have not used copyright material and not been flagged by another youtube user you will be ok,
two questions, are your video clips still on youtube and could it be the hub link is broken I wonder?
hope this helps and I hope this info is on topic I'm new and would not like to get in trouble
Thanks everyone, maybe I will have to try other videos when I get the time and stop travelling.

They were there yesterday, and today they are gone. Can I just get them back, or do you think they are gone for a reason?

I have two Hubs with broken links warnings but when I go to edit the hub to see the broken links none are highlighted and all the links are working. Is this just a glitch and is anyone else experiencing the same...

I have a number of so-called "broken links", but the pages they go to work fine. 90% of them are pages with scientific abstracts on, with web addresses from the APA (American Psychological Association) or...

There are too many things going on right now that shouldn't be, like banning an account for someone that was editing, and the new broken links coming up with 404 errors that should have been 301 redirects.So....are...

It would be useful to have the ability to automatically delete all 'broken links'. While sometimes I like to visit indivudual hubs to check the link, in most cases I simply delete the offending link.....
