    Okay, the new version is to "blame" for that ... sort of. The old "new" vids don't leave that area now until after you view them, click through each one. That is if you are talking about the "Subscriptions" page you get to by clicking on your name. Again, they are currently making upgrades a little at a time, so they can test each one instead of having the whole thing crash or wind up with a million errors, it's an old programmers technique, tried and true, and may be a bit annoying to see things change a little at a time, but trust me it's for the better. So, just go to your account page, the Subscriptions sub page, and click through each one, annoying but I am sure they will have better ways soon. They are in the process of updating channels, and that may be what's making it not work how you are use to.

    That doesn't do much right now, actually click on the video like you are going to watch it, once it starts to load (the little red bar is at least a little visible) click your subscriptions link again to go back to the list again. Don't use the "back" button, that doesn't refresh it for some reason.

    Oh ... ouch, yeah, that's a lot. Let me check a few things and see if I can find something out, I don't get much in my subscriptions so didn't expect you to have so many.

    Okay, I was right, their upgrades changed it, they are preparing for some seriously awesome new features, but since the upgrades need to be tested they are interfering with the current set up. There is nothing you can do right this moment except wait until they are done with that part, and they have no timeline posted yet. The subscriptions module is just working on defaults right now, meaning you can't do much with it. Sorry, but there is just nothing I can help you with until they are done with the upgrades. They started it on Monday and many people started noticing that their subscriptions were not working right on Tuesday. Usually this process takes them a week ... so just be patient.
