Avoid Ghost Town Posts

How many times have you seen a post like this, you read the exciting description and get to the video, and hit play and then…

This video is no longer available

“We’re sorry, this video is no longer available.”

Argg.. frustrating right.

Here is how to avoid this problem on your own blog. Each time you embed a youtube video, open up “Any DVD Converter” (or any similar program), and save the You Tube video as a flash file, and then save it, or upload it into a special folder on your blog. This way if your embedded You Tube video is removed, you can place your own copy on the blog (assuming there are no copyright issues). (Any DVD Converter is a free program, make sure you download the freeware version)
