Hi,

If I understand you correctly, you:
  • used the scan preset before scanning the website?
  • say half the videos are missing? (only pages with videos are included, and a video can only be associated to one page, not multiple)
  • are already using version 4.1.4?

In that case, please email support with:
  • website address
  • specific examples of video URLs missing (+ page URLs where the videos are shown)

And the video has not been associated to another page? (From what you describe that would be the usual explantion.)

Video sitemaps only include pages to which videos have been associated as "best fit". If a video is located on multiple pages, A1SG tries to pick the best page.

For details check:

But please email:
  • website address
  • specific examples of video URLs missing (+ page URLs where the videos are shown)

http://www.microsystools.com/home/contact.php

That way I can take a look and explain/help you better :)

Note: Remember that you can upload and submit both standard XML sitemap, video sitemap etc. to Google Webmaster Tools


Finally, you may also want to ensure robots.txt, noindex and similar are causing problems:

I have my website in three languages

I know now that the video site map will include just one page with the videos but not others although they are in a different language..My question is : Is Google okay if I include the same videos in the index in pages in 3 different languages..

You can have the video in multiple pages in your website.

But when submitting video sitemaps, the video should only be connected to the "main" page for the video. (Probably English?)

You could, I guess get around it. If you scan each website/language/section separetely, you could create a video sitemap for each section. How is your websie URLs structured?

You can control how A1SG scans a site and what it includes in scans / generated sitemaps through:
