DailyMotion Problems [en]

[fr] Un problème avec DailyMotion, heureusement réglé. Si vous n'avez pas pu voir la vidéo où je fais la bobette derrière Robert Scoble, c'est le moment d'y aller!

You probably know I like [DailyMotion](http://dailymotion.com/Steph “See my videos there.”). I posted some [feedback about DailyMotion](http://steph.wordpress.com/2006/02/05/dailymotion-feedback/) yesterday, and bumped into some naughty problems today.

The problem with DailyMotion is that it doesn’t have a nice forum or a real devblog like [coComment](http://cocomment.com) where we can leave feedback. So I’m posting it to my blog and tagging it in hope it will be found. By the way, I’ve been wondering [what the best place is](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2005/12/18/split-identity-crisis/) for this kind of feedback: here or [on the Cheese Sandwich Blog](http://steph.wordpress.org/tag/geek)? What’s your take?

After LIFT’06, I put [this video of Robert being interviewed](http://www.dailymotion.com/Steph/video/39332) online and [wrote a post about it](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2006/02/04/wild-videocast-of-robert-scoble-interview/) here. Unfortunately, it seems at least one of my readers is [not able to view it](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2006/02/04/wild-videocast-of-robert-scoble-interview/#comment-54798) . (I guess there are at least 20 of you out there who just didn’t tell me about it.) The message says something about a key not being valid for this blog.

DailyMotion allows you to [blog your videos directly from the site](http://www.dailymotion.com/doc/faq#section_15). That’s neat, but as I’m a control freak, I like dealing with the code myself. Back in November I had [posted a video to my other blog](http://steph.wordpress.com/2005/11/27/youtube-or-dailymotion/), so I grabbed the code from over there, adapted it (video id), and it seemed to work. Actually, that was because I was still logged in to my DailyMotion account.

I first tried adding CTTS to my DailyMotion account, as a second blog. That failed (error message, just doesn’t work). As I was writing this post, I tried logging out of DailyMotion, and actually saw the message all my poor readers have been seeing these last days! In a click of my trackpad I was able to fix everything.

So, if you haven’t seen me [goofing off behind Robert Scoble as David and Marc-O try to podcast him](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2006/02/04/wild-videocast-of-robert-scoble-interview/) (red wine and Apple hardware involved), now’s the time to do it! Sorry for the buggy post, and thanks a lot to [Raphael](http://www.electronlibre.ch/electronnews) for pointing out the problem to me.

  1. You mean you get the error message instead of seeing the video? Dammit, I’m logged out of DailyMotion and I see the video. Anybody else?

    Oh. As soon as I click on it I get the error message.
