Original videos URL shortened: ; ; ; ; and ;

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 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.
