Why most of the Youtube videos carry the banner of broken links, while they all work.

Yes, they are false warnings. You need to simply click the retest button to make them disappear.
I've found that clicking the "Retest" button doesn't work. I have to click the "Ignore" button to make the false warnings disappear.
Sometimes, it's like that. You can first retest and, when satisfied, click the ignore button. But, see whether it disappears automatically when reloading the page after testing it.
The notification disappeared after pressing the retest buttons. All the links were found to be good. Thanks, Venkatachari M and all for the help.
I don't think so. The broken links can result in poor performance such as higher bounce rates.
And as per reports, 88% of online consumers are less likely to return to a site after a bad experience.
A broken link may not seem so bad. But it can do some serious damage to the website, the reputation and the business. It can hurt the search engine rankings and the site’s user experience. It can also result in lost customers and revenue.
That's true if the links are actually broken. There has been an issue with broken links reports on links that are actually fine. In those cases it won't affect the user experience.
