It's a nice feature of HubPages that they alert us to broken video links, but that should not lead us to depend on them to always let us know when we have a broken link. I have quite a few music hubs, and they all have video links in them. I occasionally check back on them, and I almost always find a few broken links that I didn't know about. It's frustrating for a reader when they try to watch a video that is not available.
Hi Sherry, it is frustrating, especially if the link isn't actually broken. Have you tried clicking "ignore" and see if the link is fine? Sometimes it's a glitch. This was happening a lot around a year ago. I'm not sure if it was resolved completely.
The broken link works now but is not always reliable. That is why Sherry checks them manually.

It is of a piece of art that was auctioned at a record breaking price. The question is: is it all right to leave...
