Video Hubs cannot be converted to non-video Hub

    My wife uploaded a hub recently.

    When she did, they asked her if she wanted to use an "article" or "video" template.

    Because she wanted to add YouTube videos, it made sense to her to pick the "video" template.

    Unfortunately, it looks like that template was more to upload video files from one's own computer, not YouTube videos.

    She doesn't have a real video, from her computer, that would be relevant to this article.

    When she attempts to publish, it says THIS:

    "Your video Hub must contain a valid video. If your video is being processed, you can save your work and come back after it's finished processing."

    Is there any way to convert the template from a "video" template to an "article" template?

    Not to worry! Unfortunately, while it is possible to convert Hubs to Videos, one cannot reverse the switch, so that Video will need to be deleted and a new Hub must be started.
