Several users have noticed that some of their videos they have posted no longer play when they used to before. They may just show the Replay or Share icon, or they just sit and won't buffer at all.
I have reported this to Ning Support, and they have asked for a bunch of examples of videos that have this problem.
Please cut and paste a link of your video/s into this thread, and I will ask Ning to monitor it, instead of me emailing them link after link.
Here are some of mine that won't play:
none of mine play after the first 10 on top . it seems they all stop playing after a few weeks or a certain amount of time , and the stopage keep moving up the list .
I kind of doubt it is a space issue, though anything is possible. They have developers working on it as we speak.

I removed all the vids that I had uploaded to CBN because they all stalled--it kinda took the fun out of posting for me--no problem with YouTube embeds though...Maybe Ning has a ninja critic...or maybe CBN's area of its' Ning server is too packed with vids and the solution would be to ask those with over 30 direct uploads to remove an old one for every new one they post...or free up some room by removing the accounts of 'zombie' members who haven't signed in in over two years? That may cost you 3000+ members though...which could affect monetization of the site and Ben's investment...Yeah, better to ignore it, get a YT account, and embed from there...
some of mine not working...
Damn this infernal technology...
Some of my vids have not played for months.
Just one example... http://www.cigarboxnation.com/video/bob-harrison-pickup-in
A real pi55er, as often I only post my vids on here, so dont have them backed up anywhere... hmph.
None of mine will play either, here is an example
Thanks for the help!
For what it's worth, all of mine are fine. They were all uploaded from youtube if that matters.
Yep the ones I directly loaded onto here have stopped, my youtube embedded ones are fine...
It seems to be only the ones that are loaded directly to the site. The YouTube ones are fine.
I have sent numerous messages to Ning, but no resolution yet. I may ping them again to see if they found anything, but last time I checked, their answer was to upload them again. But if you do that, you can't move all the comments from the old one to the new one.
i wish u'd all embed from youtube...
then theyd work on my ipad etc..
Yep, I have the same issue on my iPad, but also on my work PC. Sometimes, it's our network.
Can we send out a blanket "Hey, everyone who loads videos on CBN: please post 'em to YouTube first, then embed them on CBN" kinda message? Given that your hopes are not in an inflatable state?
dunno if Gitts pays for the storage or not, or if it has limits, but i see no reason why you wouldn't offload the video hosting to someone else if its free. If this problem is recent, perhaps its cos this network has grown so exponentioally?
Just embed ur videos from you tube pls folks. Theres only advantages to doing it that way as I see it.
