Hi, I got the same notice last week when trying to upload a video. I supposed it might have to do with me being from the Netherlands. Didn't get to asking the website magician yet, now I see I'm not the only one.

The video area has a note to say "For your video to display correctly you must insert the correct YouTube URL INCLUDING ALL THE CHARACTERS AFTER THE = SIGN e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNPYyRv8nms"

From that I infer that you have to upload your video to YouTube first, and cannot simply load your video directly to our web-site.

If I am wrong, I am sure someone will correct me!

George sorry my poor description I was linking to YouTube, this site refers incorrectly to uploading, it is blocking me from linking. I seem to remember this happening before and something needed resetting   

This is the error message

Hi Guys it looks as thought we may have a problem at server level, have contacted them to try and sort it out. IT will not matter about your video from the Netherlands or whereever as long as it has a utube address.
Will get back to you asap when problem is sorted.

Cheers

George

Sorry about this but I am trying to load a video onto the website for the first time and am failing miserably.  I remembered seeing this post from last year but nothing I try seems to work.
My url is https://youtu.be/tpYP6elQP7U and if I click on that from an email it all works fine but it always gives me an error on our website.
When I go back in to edit it comes up as follows. (Screenshot).   Anyone got any ideas please.  Pete King

Hello Pete

I opened your video in u-tube. Copied the complete url (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpYP6elQP7U&feature=youtu.be) and tried it on here. Result! I'll take it off again if you wish to post it with comments.

Hello Pete
I copied your "https://youtu.be/tpYP6elQP7U" and pasted that into my browser search bar. Ran the you tube and the search bar changed to the long url.
Hope it works for you!
Best wishes,
George
