Video is not showing up when I link to it

  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago
Hi, I am having trouble with linking to a video and it is not showing up on my timeline. I pasted the link to the video in the Video URL of an event- http://youtu.be/75VyoUycW7Y and clicked save. When I went back to check the event on the timeline the event opened but there was no video playing.

What do I do?

Thanks

Hello Katherine,

Thanks for letting us know and sorry for the inconvenience.

The problem could be caused by the permissions on the video. Many YouTube accounts set their privacy in a way that does not allow visitors to watch video 3rd party sites (like Dipity). In that case, a visitor would have to watch the video on the content holder's YouTube channel.

I would be happy to take a closer look. Can you provide me with a link to the event where the problem is occurring?

I hope that's helpful and thanks for using Dipity!

Yeah same issue for me. However it does show up in the newsfeed. Weird.
