issue accessing video file associated with my instructables Answered

Hi guys, Hi Instructable team(?) anyway, I went to look at one of my old(er) instructables about making a electronically programmable fireworks display and one of the files I have attached won't download, just give me an error. I have a video file attached and when I try to access or download it it just gives me an error "forbidden" and when I try to access it in the editor it redirects me to the CDN server and gives me the error

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
<Message>Access Denied</Message>

Any ideas?

Thanks for any help

That is one reason why I prefer to host my video files on Youtube.
Even if they get lost I can just upload them again and simply change the link in the Ible.
If you still have the original video then just delete the old one in the Ible and upload the video to your library instead of putting it directly into the Ible.
Use the link from your library in the Ible and all should be good.
