Are you talking about a YouTube video capsule with a video that is no longer available? In that case, try to visit YouTube, run a search, and see if the video is still published, then get the URL or embed code.
If it is a link to a site with a defunct video, simply remove the link.
No its not a video. It's a link that is in blue writing , I think link to another article. How do I unlink it?
If it is a video, then follow the instructions that Web Examiner gave you.
The "broken link" can also be any link from your site such as in link capsule, news feed or in-text link where someone has deleted their hub or article. Just go to "edit mode" and look for the yellow highlighted portion in your hub.
Note: I have noticed several YouTube links broken lately. Seems YouTube is tightening up on it users for material used also.
Did what you said saw the yellow highlighted area but do not know how to unlink it.
just highlight the yellow highlighted area and then click "broken link". When you want to do a link, you click "link".. so when you when to unlink something, you click "broken link." I hope I made sense.

I'm cleaning up my hubs, repairing broken links, etc. The broken links aren't highlighted, which makes fixing them sorta tough.
