In case you get a 403 Error when trying to fetch a video, please contact your instance admin and ask them to clear the cache of the apconf account like this:
Unfortunately, some unforeseen issues might have been triggered by the initial video publication.
@leah @rixx @eest9 Has this progressed and been resolved?
Example video is https://conf.tube/videos/watch/6289920f-4e35-4141-ab6f-379b357849ec
Background: When uploaded initially, the videos were posted with a DM-like visibility but without anyone on your instance being allowed to see them. For whatever reason, this Publish activity was still sent to all follower instances like chaos.social.
Mastodon now has this visible-to-noone property cached and does not support mutable updates.
