I have some hubs with a lot of videos in them and I was wondering if there was an easy way to monitor what I call "broken videos" in hubs. Like when the only thing that you see when you click on the play button is "This video has been removed blah blah blah."
Right now I have 8 hubs with multiple videos in each, and I find "broken videos" in them quite regularly because the videos have been removed from YouTube for whatever reason. I plan to make more of these video hubs, but it's a big hassle to go through each hub one by one and manually check each video one by one every day. It would be nice if there was some sort of automatic notification system that shows us if our hubs have "broken videos" just like with the "broken links" feature.
Thanks for your suggestion! :-)
We do currently check for broken videos.
You can see if any broken links were found by using this url:
which is the same as clicking "broken links" in my account.
If you find a broken video that was not caught, please feel free to let me know and I can see what's up.
I see. So the same feature that checks for broken links also checks for broken videos. I wonder why it always reported "No broken links at this time" even when I had broken videos. Anyway, thanks. I'll keep using the Broken Links feature and still monitor videos manually to compare results.
Reporting a broken video that was not caught:
I found one broken video in this hub of mine yet the Broken Links feature reports "No broken links found at this time":
The second video displays "This video is no longer available..." when you try to play it.

I've had a notification of a broken link on my hub 'Lest We Forget' but there is nothing highlighted. What is going on? I can't correct it if I don't know what it is!

This is curious:There is a particular comment thread I am following from one author, on an article on his page. If I see a notification on my feed (home page) that there was a new comment, and click that link, it will take me to the page, and drops me at the very top of the article.However,...

A couple of my hubs have icons indicating that they have broken links, but when I open them there is no such notification at the top of the page, no broken links are highlighted, and I can't find any broken links in the articles. (I clicked on the links, and they all seem to go to their...
