So it seems that the links to the game clips on TA change from time to time. I'm not sure what triggers this, but it is rather annoying to link game clips from TA in solutions because every now and then the solution is just left with a "this link is no longer available" exclamation, even though the video is still in my clips.

Sure, I could host the files on youtube or something but it would be nice if the links could become more permanent and stop changing every now and then.

I can vouch for this as well. Several of my older solutions have broken embeds due to the links changing.

for example. Those clips still exist, you can find them on my profile, but the links are not the same as when I made the solution.

Yeah, I don't have any specific examples since I just fixed my two links last night, but it's exactly what Awoo shows in that solution.

It happened in my Shadow of War solutions. I only noticed due to a down vote.

No problem. Wish I could be of more help. If I see it again, I will post it here before I fix it.
