Why would my videos from You Tube have disappeared from my hubs?

    They were there yesterday, and today they are gone. Can I just get them back, or do you think they are gone for a reason?

      this has actually happened to me a lot too.  whenever you add any video to your hub, your kind at the mercy of the person who's providing the video.  a lot of times like on youtube a person will put up a video, but then they can change it to private, which means the only place you can watch it is on the youtube site.  Or they'll have it removed because the user decides to, or it violates some copyright or content policy. 

      The best advice I can give you is to check your account page, as it should tell you which hubs that you might need to replace your videos.  However, if your like me and have a lot of hubs, then a lot of times even hubpages never show you which hubs need new videos, then if that's the case....you might have to just check your hubs periodically like I do.  trust me, i know it's a royal pain, but that's kind of the trade off of having videos in your hub.  sorry to have to tell you that.

        Thank you very much. I only have 9 hubs and all videos are gone. I guess I will see if I can get others to replace them.

        I can relate with what Stevennix2001 has said - nice explanation, Stevennix2001.

        I try to go to my account page every day and scan my hub list (I have quite a few, so this list is handy) and check for HP symbols to tell me there might be something wrong with a hub or two...

        Then I check the leftmost column of navigation links from my "account" page which has:
        traffic sources
        broken links    <---------------
        malicious links
        copied hubs

        Easy to do on a daily basis as soon as you log in. I've found that the broken links selection helps me find messed up vids 'cos essentially they are broken links in the video if someone deletes something at youtube. I find some messed up vids this way, anyway - and can quickly fix the hub/vid in question, find a different video, etc.

      My videos all came back on their own. Is this witchcraft? Probably broken links got fixed.

      Check the link of the videos.The videos would be deleted from youtube.So it is not finding the videos and seeing empty

    Thanks mythbuster. I have switched browsers from IE to Firefox. Would that make a difference? I already got one of my videos back, and there were no broken links.

    brakel, usually if it's the people who put the video (somewhere like YouTube) responsible for removing the video, there will be a "notice" "embedding disabled by request".   (Sometimes people put up videos on YouTube they're not supposed to.)  Anyway, usually there's that notice where the video used to be if YouTube (or anyone associated with it) is behind the removal.
