This happens almost every time I try to incorporate a video into a hub.
I get the video into the capsule and am able to preview it just fine.
I press "done editing" and my hub goes into a never-ending "loop" of "loading."
Saving the hub should happen quickly and automatically.
If I try to press "preview" at that point I am told the hub I am looking for is no longer published (even if it has never BEEN published yet!). I have to log out and log back in. But in all cases the video capsule is not saved.
In some cases I have been able to overcome this glitch by logging out -- not just out of HP, but off my computer.
However, in the past 24 hours even that has not solved the problem.
Anyone know how to overcome this extremely annoying problem? I really like to include videos and it frustrates me A LOT not to be able to!

Hi Ixxy. Thanks.
I use Windows Internet Explorer through Yahoo.
Maybe I should try accessing HP through Firefox instead?
Still,that should not be necessary. Every OTHER capsule works fine!
When you say you don't preview the video until it's done and on the page, you mean you click "Save" on the capsule first and THEN preview to make sure the video is working?
I will try that. Hold on...
Ixxy -- You are a genius!
It worked. I've been living in friggin insanity for a long time, doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.
I was able to add 2 videos using your technique.
Don't want to push my luck:-)!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
Awe, shucks you!
You make me blush.
Not a genius, just adapt at working around issues maybe...
...and really, if you want to thank, just keep the knowledge close and help the next person along with this problem.
Information just wants to be free... ;D
I've not had any problems with video on Firefox, and I used IE the other day without any problems.
With Ixxy's technique I was able to resolve the issue. At least for today:-).
Old dogs and new internet tricks. Sometimes it takes a few tries:-)!
Hi Mighty Mom,
It sounds like you may have found a bug. I tried to reproduce the it but was unable to. Perhaps, I am not following the same steps.
I used IE7 on Windows Vista to try to reproduce it:
1. Went to an existing hub that's already published.
2. Added a Video Capsule
3. Added a YouTube Video link:
I used a url that I took from one of your hubs:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4HUBbRR … r_embedded
I did a preview.
Then I saved the capsule.
Then I clicked "Done Editing"
Everything worked fine for me. Is this problem that you are seeing happening every time? If so, which version of IE are you using and is there anything different that you do from what I listed above?
Once I am able to reproduce the bug, I can let you know how quickly we can fix the issue.
Thanks very much,

In order to add your own video to a hub, do you have to join youtube first, upload your video, then put it in the hub capsule? I wish I could upload my videos like I upload my photos.

I am working on a new hub, which will include video. I made the videos myself and uploaded them to the "my videos" section of my account. I began a video hub using one of them. I want to add...

I have been writing the full instructions to my recipes here on hubpages and I've also made a few step-by-step videos on YouTube. I recently tried putting my videos from YouTube in my hubs in a capsule but they don't...

YouTube allows a start time parameter that, when used in a link, causes the linked video to start at the specified time. For example, in:http://youtu.be/Y0t-RqjMH-A?t=2m40sthe ?t=2m40s should cause the video to begin...

I would really like it if we could upload one of our own videos in the video capsule like we can in the video hub format, but instead we can only use a video that is already on the net. It's not always convenient to use...
