"Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? nicepaul 4/22/12 10:32 AM
In my video's "Claiming Options" tab, I'm trying to change the Ad Formats settings. My videos have been earning significantly less than normal recently, and none of the Ad Formats options are checked, so that may be why.

When I check all the options (see attached screenshot) then click "Save" I get the error:

Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error

Any thoughts?

thanks,
Paul

I see you are in CMS.  Is this your CMS or are you part of a Network.  If you are part of a Network you need to contact your Network admin to solve this issue.

If I were to take a guess, it may be due to your video description being to long and not anything to do with your ad settings.

Glad to know im not the only one!
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? techbytigz 5/1/12 1:55 AM
Yes. Me too, im also getting the same error message. Why cant youtube have phone support?
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? Brons 5/1/12 2:02 AM
Same here. Knowing Youtube this will probably take a few weeks to fix.
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? Alarikun 5/1/12 2:07 AM
Same damn problem.  Can't monetize, but managed to do everything else.
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? Lifewithnick 5/1/12 2:09 AM
Yup, im uploading a video, when i check the box for monetizing it will give the error.

I already tried to go to my monetized videos, UNCHECK that monetizing box, save, then check again to monetize, also get the error.. So this is a major bug that youtube has to fix NOW

Me too - I noticed a few of us have posted within the last hour so maybe a temp issue that was fixed since the original post and broken again.
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? Lifewithnick 5/1/12 2:40 AM
yeah could be, hope they will fix it soon!
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? jgpolitics 5/1/12 2:50 AM
I have been having this same sort of error. It won't let me save the video description or anything unless I have the Monetization unchecked. gives this error "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" just going to have an wait and see I guess.
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? epictreasure 5/1/12 2:59 AM
yep happening to me too.. monetization is NOT allowed for ANY of them either.. :(
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? perfectsol 5/1/12 3:16 AM
I also have the same problem! What happens with youtube today?
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? interweaver 5/1/12 3:19 AM
Most of my old videos are monetized but it won't let me monetize new uploads.

But some of my old videos don't even have the monetize tab at all!

So annoying that there's no way to contact service to resolve the issue..

Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? JTMitchell87 5/1/12 3:23 AM
While I'm glad to see it's not only happening to me, this makes me even more worried since it seems to be happening to so many others.

First noticed it about four hours ago, tried all I could think of including deleting and re-uploading then switching back to the "old" edit page layout where I got this error after trying to monetize my video.

Sorry, we found some errors:

    Failed to submit video for review, please try again later.
    It appears that video is already claimed. You cannot claim it again.

I have a feeling that everyone is having the same problem. Hope YouTube can fix it!
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? Hertog 5/1/12 3:35 AM
Same here, really frustrating!
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? Giox3 5/1/12 3:37 AM
glad that i´m not the only one!
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? epictreasure 5/1/12 3:46 AM
same issue with me, so sad
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? epictreasure 5/1/12 3:47 AM
AS SOON as i click monetize , it reads "Your video settings could not be saved: Cannot edit claims made by third parties"

and other times it simply says it cannot be saved...

wth

Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? Brons 5/1/12 3:55 AM
I don't want to be a negative nancy here but I'd be prepared in case this takes a very long time. As far as I know Youtube staff doesn't read this forum (they only post) and it takes them about a month to reply to e-mails. If there is no error detection on their side it will take a long time before the respond.
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? Hertog 5/1/12 4:03 AM
When i switch to the old design i get:"It appears that video is already claimed. You cannot claim it again."
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? Kris Patrick 5/1/12 4:27 AM
Same problem here..

Its a shame, every video I have uploaded to you tube so far has had some kind of problem :(

Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? utahactor 5/1/12 4:57 AM
Same is happening to me.  I uploaded and monetized three videos successfully before midnight.  My first video after midnight on May 1st, 2012 gets the error, "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error."  Is this a May 1st bug with YouTube?  Wish I could have beat the deadline.....
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? utahactor 5/1/12 5:00 AM
Not true with me.  I sometimes have very long video descriptions and I am not part of a Network.  Nothing changed with my computer except the date - May 1st, 2012.  I had just finished uploading and monetizing a video at 11:55 PM on April 30, 2012 according to YouTube.  Next video finished at 12:46 AM and that is went I clicked Monetize and got the error message.
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? creationsceecee 5/1/12 5:30 AM
same thing here. i'm reuploading without monetization and hopefully i'll be able to do it later. and i'll assume that youtube is aware of the problem and working on a fix!
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? svartling 5/1/12 5:43 AM
I have the same problems at the moment. What's wrong?
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? svartling 5/1/12 5:47 AM
It must be a May 1st bug. Very strange. I hope Google sees this very soon.
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? jasminabbq 5/1/12 5:57 AM

Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? DjKoolaide 5/5/12 5:06 PM
All I did was upload my video and it said the same thing.  I didn't even try to monetize it.
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? utahactor 5/5/12 5:45 PM
They fixed it on May 1st, I sent an email to partner...@youtube.com
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? bardofely 5/15/12 7:33 AM
It has just happened to me twice. I tried re-uploading but it happened again. I thought I would search to see if anyone else has this problem!
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? orb8 6/18/12 8:03 AM
This has started happening to me too today. Can't upload anymore. Come-on YT!!
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? leokimfail 6/29/12 10:09 PM
yes happened to me yesterday, seems it's a recurring bug....nasty one as it really affects a upload
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? Ddelz 7/1/12 11:00 AM
This is happening to me also, and it's not even monetized! I can't put in a video description or title or anything! This is bull!
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? leokimfail 7/1/12 4:39 PM
now I am seeing more posts about this problem it's clear re-uploading does not work, it's got that feeling this problem will take some time to be resolved as it really seems like a fairly small scale problem as annoying as it is, the other problem is there are a number of split threads on this subject and what I can see is a few more people come forward every day with the same story
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? AbuMasood 7/2/12 8:40 AM
Same here. Started yesterday ... Does anyone have an update? Is this a bug being worked on?
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? XKUNXEntertainment 7/3/12 10:17 PM
I am getting this problem too, I am not even monetizing my videos,
"Your video settings could not be saved : Cannot edit claims made by third parties"

What the fuck is this bullshit, I make videos to drive traffic to my website, and now i can't even post my website in description???

Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? flatgrave 7/5/12 12:11 PM
Go to Video Manager, select the videos (checkbox next to the video), go to actions, and select the setting you want.
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? exotichugz 7/6/12 8:08 PM
I still have the same problem!!!
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? Nagidal 7/7/12 6:37 PM
I'm troubled by this, too. Is there any explanation for it? I'm not monetizing the videos, just trying to upload a new one. I get this error and then the upload is cancelled.
Re: "Your video settings could not be saved: Unknown error" – what does this mean? mg16 7/8/12 3:15 AM
Try to edit a description in basic info  and get the same problem:

Check out this YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVGR8l2AtNg
It works by changing everything on the view page (who knew?) and then saving it from there. I suggest going to full page on the tutorial.
