      There is nothing to stop us posting on YouTube,
      but what is a shame is that when the links become dysfunctional
      it makes the contents of our YouTube forum look poor!
      Hopefully to avoid this, we may periodically
      need to go back over our uploads, check them
      and if necessary seek a new source for the video


      About the video removed, perhaps it would be useful to create a post that would indicate these videos and allowing authors to correct it by giving a new link or by removing the existing invalid link.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

      Romy,
      We have asked for the author's too check their links,
      and have met with no response.
      It would be too time consuming for the admin team
      to check each individual link, as indeed I tried,
      but quite frankly had enough after a couple of hours!
      There seems no requirement for another thread highlighting this problem,
      as indeed, this is the the reason for this one.
      I also have reposted Chester's initial post making the same point.

      I was noticing that it is not uncommon for YouTube videos to become 'unavailable' for any number of reasons (usually due to a claim of copyright infringement). It is also not uncommon for the same clip to be available either again or elsewhere on YouTube.

      If you notice that has happened, and you posted it, there is an "Edit" button you can click and go in and replace the old information with new. If you are unable to find a new link, you also have the option of choosing to delete the post.

      If you come upon one that you have not posted, please let me or one of the other moderators know, and we'll see what we can do to fix it.

      I've gone through and fixed a few, but it is a little time consuming. I will do a few at a time, as I am able.
