link problem

Postby arcane eyes » Mon Mar 05, 2012 12:18 am

I'm trying to input a link for a video, and no matter what I try I get the same message

ERROR: Link is not valid: 403 - Forbidden

Common Problems:
* Protocal required: http://, https://, ftp://
* No closing / at the end of a directory:
http://www.site.com/video/directory should be http://www.site.com/video/directory/
* You just typed the name in wrong. :-)

i really hate being forced to make a thread about this. it's just a stupid youtube link. i pasted it exactly like it is but no go.

so it turns out it was just the one video that wouldn't link. still don't know why since the link works fine otherwise, can't figure out why this site won't accept it.

i got it to work finally. it wouldn't accept the standard address for one single video for some reason but I got it working by using extended link. Close thread please.

Try selecing "indirect" as the link type. When a link goes to a file (like directly to an AVI or mp4) that's "direct". If you're putting in a link to a different website, like Youtube, that's "indirect". That might make it work properly for you.
