This is a strange one. When searching for videos using the /api/search/ endpoint, some results are missing the low_url, high_url and hd_url field. The issue occurs regardless of whether or not these fields are included in the field_list query parameter. There doesn't seem to be a discernible pattern for which videos are affected and it's inconsistent even within the same search query.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Search for videos using the query "Hitman": /api/search/?query=Hitman&api_key=<api_key>&format=json&resources=video
  • The first result (Quick Look: Hitman: Patient Zero) is missing the video URL fields.
  • The fifth result (Hitman Solo Agent: The Fixer (and Friends) includes the expected video URL fields.

Can confirm, e.g. with:

- Worth Playing: 08/29/2014

- Playdate: GBE Playdate: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

- Mailbag: Giant Bomb Mailbag: JAMMA Edition

- Load Our Last Souls: Part 10

- Old Games: Encyclopedia Bombastica: Day of Defeat

This is still an issue.

Will it be fixed? There are quite a lot more failures apart from the tiny selection of examples I mentioned previously.
