    I have been working on a video letter and am having trouble with youtube. Here is the trouble:

    I signed up, received the email confirmation link and attempted to confirm, but everytime I try to sign in, nothing happens. Youtube says I have an account, but I can't get to it. I have changed my password a couple of times, but it doesn't get me in.

    Has anyone had this problem and fixed it? I have not found a way to get in touch with anyone at YouTube for assistance. If I can't find a way to upload to youtube, is there another video site I can use? If it matters, no, I don't have a google account and I don't use google.

    Thanks in advance. icon_biggrin.gif

    Apparently you are not alone. Here is an announcement posted by YouTube on June 17th, 2009:

    http://ythelpforum.blogspot.com/2009/06/email-address-is-not-verified-bug.html

    If you did click on the link in your e-mail to get yourself verified, maybe you should try step 2 and click on this:

    I used their directions in that forum and it still didn't work. I attempted to create a new YouTube account and it said I had a Google account. I did get further with the verification process, but for the last hour and a half, the email verification link has been redirecting itself to somewhere. I am going to search for another video sharing site. My videos are primarily going to be political in nature with what is going on in the gay community and gay rights. Thanks for the assist though. icon_biggrin.gif I will go back and try it again later.

    Any other ideas, please post!!!!

    As long as it's not commercial in nature, Vimeo is a pretty cool site. Not nearly as popular though in terms of hits.

    Oh cool! I use it exclusively at work since we just upload videos to Vimeo and embed them on our company web site. (So we really don't care if anyone else sees it or not outside of our company channels.)

    Good luck!
