Can anyone figure out why I can't get this video xml Sitemap to be accepted by Google Webmaster Tools? I edited out some of the optional fields and am now down to the basics... and it still gets the red X:
If the code isn't accepted on this post (TOS?) I would be more than happy to provide it for inspection... thanks :-)
