@ Millennium12 , youtube.be isn't blocked in my hosts file .
I know that youtu.be is an URL shortener & redirects to youtube.com .
I guess the theory of the hosts file sites & compilers is this redirect could be used by malware. No adverse effects for me on YouTube from my hosts file that I can tell .
@ skoville , You can only make a video public at YouTube is if your the one that posted it on YouTube. Don't feel like you the only one that's clueless . The only reason I know how to upload to YouTube & post a video is because of club.myce.
A while back there was a Myce accents thread. That was where I learned & posted my first YouTube video. I only have a few & all those are "unregistered". I've only posted them at club.myce . Of course someone can copy the link & post them elsewhere .
I guess I should ask where you got the link .
Since it seems to be private .
