Upwork does not support new Youtube "short" links

HI! I was trying to upload videos from Youtube to my portfolio. They have recently added 'shorts' to short vvideo urls - the Upwork doesn't recognize those links and they can not be uploaded. Please fix.

Hi Ivan,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would like to clarify that you should be able to use YouTube short videos in your portfolio. Could you please clarify if the video you are trying to use is public so that we can assist you further?

Here is what fixed it for me: in the Youtube shorts URL, replace "shorts/" with "watch?v=". Then use the link in the Video Introduction slot on Upwork.

Thank you so much, it worked!!!

I'll try this later. Thanks for this.

Yeah, it doesn't work. I tried it last week and had the same problem. Had to upload an actual video file.
