Can't link video despite its being in the Petrucci Library

Postby ReinyLegit » Thu Oct 22, 2015 1:29 pm

When I try to link this YouTube video
https://youtu.be/2W5h8CuvbkY

to this IMSLP piece
http://imslp.org/wiki/And_His_Cuff_was_ ... ani,_Karen)

the step that instructs me to "1. Type in or paste the piece you want to link with your video" is unable to find a Petrucci Library match and displays this error message: "This piece doesn't exist in the Petrucci Music Library!"

I suspect that this may have something to do with the fact that the main title of the piece is in Persian not English. I suspect that the search engine has trouble with non-English titles, especially if they are in the database in non-Latin alphabets.

Is there anything I can do to accomplish this?

I linked the IMSLP page to the YouTube performance using our template for this = {{YT|url|Ensemble or Performer}}, but we have no advice for you to make a link to the IMSLP page appear correctly on YouTube, apart from being sure to employ the full URL http://imslp.org/wiki/And_His_Cuff_was_ ... ani,_Karen). I'll try switching the titles to see if it helps you.
