Original video source URLs redirect to unrelated su.pr video pages after link shortening with Su.pr. Any ideas/suggestions for a fix? 6.14.12

Hello,

Can you please provide an example url where this occurred, both the original URL and the the su.pr link?

Hi,

Original Su.pr videos URL shortened:
http://su.pr/2w9wid ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mjEiV...
http://su.pr/1DjGLS ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AomBk0...
http://su.pr/2fK9lU ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkOaeh... ; and
http://su.pr/2Eic4L ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mjEiV....

Each, created from YouTube URLs, however when clicked, 1) a different URL link appeared for each without any video image, only a truncated title and a redirect to YouTube.com with: 2) "An error occurred during validation," no matter how many different URLs were shortened.

Image uploaded; uncertain if visible on the getsatisfaction plaftorm?

the first three work fine - in the last example, the youtube url that you're trying to shorten, appears to be a bad url to start with.

As Ben said above, the only link that isn't working for me is the last one because it's incomplete.

Shortened URL video shows other video. Not the original video that you have shortened.
