I've tried several times to upload a youtube video to my mod and each time I get the same error message about it being 'timed out'.

Issue on my end or server issue, or something else?

Anybody know how to fix?

Thanks for your report, this issue was already fixed some time ago. Sorry that nobody left a message that it was. If anyone spots any issues or bugs, or if any of you suspect that something does not work as intended, you can report it here in this subforum, any assistance is greatly appreciated!

I can never seem to upload a YouTube video, says the same 'timed out', I know a direct url is needed but still does not seem to work.

Damn, yes, it seems broken. Other videos pop up filedata errors.

It depends on the video, unfortunately most work but some just don't. If you give me the youtube video link of the one you are struggling with I can take a look.

Yeah ive had this issue for many months! Recently tried again hoping I could upload but it still fails with a time out. The odd one did work though out of the 5-6 or so I tried.

Here is one that didn't work:

Hi Scott, I did paste the link in my previous post, I see it named it so not so obvious.

I've been using IndieDB for years now and I never had this issue before, i could any link and it would work, i could also paste it in various ways (long link, short link, etc.) and it would grab no problem. I started encountering an issue id say 6 months or so ago and never really bothered with it until a few weeks ago when trying to upload multiple videos.

So in all technicality, it should still function the same as it always did, the real question is what happened in that time that made the youtube link grab break so badly?

Here's my video that won't upload (any videos from this channel won't upload, i've had it for a while):
