    I'm getting the indication of broken links on many of my videos,

    though clicking of these links even within the hub opens the video..
    Is anyone else facing this problem?

    Yep, the same happened with me yesterday. But only with the YouTube capsules, everything else is working fine. I was waiting until today maybe it will get fixed on its own, but this morning I changed the links and the indication is gone. I don't know what caused this, but was annoying for sure.
    And I am happy that I was able to find videos similar to the previous ones.

    This can happen from time to time. It's usually easy to fix. Do the following:

    Click on the black exclamation mark that appears next to the hub in the stats page of your account.

    You will see a box giving you the option to 'retest'. Click that.

    Most likely this will resolve the issue immediately.

    Sometimes it is an unfortunate coincidence that there was a temporary problem with the link when the test was done.

    This should always be the first step as it is a lot more simple than re-doing all your links!

    Hope that helps. smile

      Well Arren123, you are very welcome. I had the same difficulty myself once and another hubber helped me out. I'm sure you'll be happy to do the same for someone else. wink

    I have had the same problem for a couple of days now. Hubpages have been notified. Click on the broken links icon and the video will come up click retest and it seems to sort it out. Good luck Rajan.

    Hi rajan, same here for 2 of mine. When I edited the hubs, the video capsule were empty. I clicked on it and it brought it back. The warning is still there when I view my account, but I know the links work so I'm assuming the warning will now disappear.

    Sometimes this could happen if you are using a video via YouTube and they had to take off their video due to the YouTuber violating some rules. Nothing on your part.

    I'm having the same problem with photos and links to other hubs. The broken link icon is popping up, but when i check the links, they all click through just fine. Must be an HP bug.

    Yes I had that problem yesterday with a YouTube video.  There was a broken link icon on one of my hubs.  I click on the video and it worked just fine so I deleted it and embed the video again.  The broken link icon would not go away no matter what I did.  I am glad you ask this question because now I can find help from some of these answers.

    This is has happened to many of my hubpages.  I have done RE-TEST (as explained by whowas) for such broken link hubpages.  After test, the message disappeared.
