I'm currently writing a hub which will use several videos I have on YouTube. I've imported these into video capsules on the hub, but when in editing mode, I'm getting a message come up on most of the videos saying:
'The specified URL is not working'
However, in preview mode, the videos show OK, and when I click on the play arrow on the videos, they play perfectly well. No problem with running the videos. All the videos on the YouTube site are available for public viewing. Can anyone advise if there is a problem or not, and how to solve it if there is a problem? I'm loathe to re-create the videos because that takes a really long time, so is this just a message fault? When the page is finally published, will visitors to the page (as opposed to myself, the page author) be able to see these videos?
I have run into this problem before and the solution which fixed my problem was to delete the video capsule and insert another. Sometimes, they malfunction.
Thank you Cagsil. I know what you mean! Sometimes something does seem to go wrong for no apparent reason, and I've deleted capsules (not just video) and started again.
But I do wonder in this case whether it was because there is a time delay in changes working their way through? When I first uploaded (or is it downloaded?) the videos from YouTube to my HubPage, I was keeping the videos private on YouTube. About 2 days after making them public, the URL message disappeared. I just published the hub - a music hub - today, and (fingers crossed) the videos seem to be OK. Cheers.

Earlier on today I saw that Hubpages bot let a message for one of my Hubs saying that the URL is not working. The URL is a youtube video and when I went to my hub it was working, so I could not figure out why it apparently was not working.

I am absolutely distraught. Some of my best hubs contain youtube videos. I have found that anyone logged into hubpages can see my videos without any problem. Today my Dad happened to be looking at my hubs and said "there are no videos here". Stunned, I went onto hubpages and logged out of...

I noticed this problem about 2 weeks ago and I was hoping it would fix itself. But it didn't.Many of my hubs, not to mention my blogs, have embedded youtube videos. Now they no longer show up. Just a blank square where they should be. Any clue why this is and how to fix it? Am I the only one or has...
