Hi, I wanted to cleanup every "Video" in my wiki, but whenever I check WhatLinksHere for the video, it sometimes show that it isn't linked anywhere, BUT when I do delete it, it causes red links because it was actually linked somewhere. How can I effectively nit out which pages the Video: is linked to? And if possible, how can I disable "Video:" so that users can only use the <youtube> tag in my wiki?

If you want to disable the "video" namespace, you'll probably need to contact staff via Special:Contact/general on your wiki. Also, videos should show up in Special:WhatLinksHere. Could you provide a link to your wiki? --Dser (wall | email) 15:03, 3/10/2012
I've experienced a problem with "what links here" for videos in the past. I'm guessing that your wiki uses the <videogallery id="0"> tag. Videos used in that tag do not show in lists of file links. However, you can keep track of what pages contain video galleries at Special:TagsReport?target=videogallery. --Gardimuer { ʈalk } 19:47, March 16, 2012 (UTC)
