They Broke YouTube

Post by FourPart »

As some of you aware I do a bit of composing & arranging & publish my pieces on SheetMusicPlus.com. Whenever I do this I add a YouTube video, with a link to where the sheet music can be purchased as a Digital Publication. However, as I have now distanced myself from the sub account of the choir & set up an entirely new account I need to change the links in each of the uploads. Tedious, yes, but fairly straightforward. You would think so, but in their meddling with a new format YouTube seem to have broken it. While all of my pieces are active, searchable & playable, according to my own Video Manage, only 2 of them exist as my Uploads & as such are not editable.

Does anyone have any idea how to get around this?

If you go into the other pieces on You Tube who is shown as the author - is it still you?

Can you contact You Tube and get them to correct the links?

The problem is that all those uploads now have the wrong links on them to make the sales.

OK, given that they are all credited to the same author, how do they explain that? Can you ask them to list the channels for each of the videos?

Technical Support is not one of their better points.
