Adding Google Drive Link (In Edit Video Info) Not Working

Post by l_Tic-Tac_l » Sun Dec 29, 2019 10:53 pm

Just trying to add a direct link to the video info entry for my AMV in the form of a google drive share link, but I keep getting this ERROR message:

ERROR: Link is not valid: 307 - OK

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. :-)

WHAT I HAVE TRIED/CHECKED:
-The link is valid & shared
-It works from outside my own google account (got my friend to check it)
-It is typed correctly
-Have messed around with / and various http:// vs https://
-I have tried it on chrome and edge
-Have also tried adding a different video with a different google drive link (didn't work either)
-It allows YT links but not google drive

So I'm not sure what to do? I searched the forums and the only other forum didn't have a resolution.
Any help would be appreciated, cheers ^-^

Nvm I figured it out, you have to click sharing settings in google drive then copy "that" link, as the link that automatically gets copied when you click get shareable link, apparently isn't complete and this site hates it.

You can close the thread if you like admins.
