I have noticed that videos do not work on my hub pages or other pages that I have viewed. How can I get them to work?
HubPages supports a LOT of different video formats but you have to make sure you've put in the right URL and that the video you are linking to allows it.
Also, if you are trying to embed a video, that won't work. You need to use the video capsule to add a video.
I was using a video from Youtube and used the URL and tried to use the embed code. It was in the video capsule. It still did not work. I used the link capsule instead, and it brings the video up. I have just noticed the same problem on other hubs too.
Thanks for your response.
Just noticed !
You dont have to use the embed code provided by youtube in Video Capsule..thata HTML code ...not useful in case of hubpages
You are getting it wrong.
Just copy the Youtube Video url in your address bar( sometimes it may be long ....but just remember its something like
www.youtube.com/watch?v=5P6UU6m3cqk only & every thing else like www.youtube.com/watch?v=5P6UU6m3cqk&feature=popular is not required )and thats all
May be, about more on what & how to add/edit a video capsule, the following will help

I have one that did that, too. I linked the video on my Lizzie Borden hub. That video was especially long (over an hour -- full length docu-drama). I wonder if length doesn't have something to do with it?
No Youtube videos are working for me at the moment but not only ones embedded in hubs. Youtube itself is fine, just no videos can be viewed!
I just checked one of my hubs and the vids on that hub are fine. YouTube videos too.

I know that hubpages is strict about violations and copyright but is it a violation to post a youtube video in your hub, which you know includes copyrighted material, which the one uploading the video did not have...

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've tried both YouTube and Yahoo videos. When I enter either the link or the embed code, everything appears to be working except I cannot see or preview the videos in the capsule. I just get that funky little box with...

I would love to see an area for text or at least a caption added to the video capsules. In almost all the videos I've posted in my hubs, I've wanted to explain a little bit of this or that about what the reader is...
