SOTA Youtube Problem?-can't submit videos


#1

Has anyone else experienced difficulties submitting videos to the SOTA youtube group?

Neither the great SOTA film producer F5LKW nor I have been able to add videos to the group and I came across this thread on the Youtube site:

http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/youtube/thread?tid=183ddda31b3a1d09&hl=en

Are Roger and I the only ones affected from SOTA? Does anyone have a fix?

Since they did the redesign there has been issues, I had problems adding comments. This is now fixed. It looks like some people have managed adds to the sota group in the last few days, so it maybe an isolated issue … one can hope.

Andrew or anyone else who can add videos to the SOTA group:

Roger, F5LKW has made a set of SOTA activation videos recently that he has on his Youtube site http://www.youtube.com/user/F5LKW

Could someone go ahead and add those videos to the SOTA group? Roger and I can’t.

Sorry to hi-jack this thread, but it is sort of related.

When I try to join the group it says I have to login with either my Google or Youtube account, but if I logon with my Google one (as I don’t have a Youtube one) I get another silly page about creating a Youtube account - so what is the point of signing in with a Google account if I need a Youtube one ?

I just tried and it errors out asking for a topic … But I don’t usually submit videos that way.
Just add the tag ‘Summits_on_the_Air’ to the video and it should appear in the SOTA group automagically.

Hi Andrew.
I tried to add the tag: Summits_on_the_Air but still the same errors.

Anything wrong with my browser ?

In reply to N2YTF:
Ok, I too just tried to add your video… I could not get it to add by clicking the ‘submit a video’ button.

For some reason if you click on the link to ‘Featured Group Videos’ and then click on the same ‘submit a video’ button… it accepts the video without complaining of a missing topic … weird !!! … but a work around.

YouTube was bought by “The Google”, so you can use their login for YouTube now… Not sure why it asks you to relogin though.

Holy cow…do I have to click my heels together and say “theres no place like SOTA” three times too??

At least it works (seems to work for me too)…nice job Andrew!
