This generally happens when your server uses security add-ons like "mod_securiy - Apache module". Kindly email us your Joomla! admin access details to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. So, we can check and let you know the exact reason that causes the issue. So, you can report your Host accordingly and get this solved.

Hi,
I'm facing the same issue after upgrading from 3.3.0 to 3.4.0.
The following message appears while adding new video:
An appropriate representation of the requested resource could not be found on this server. This error was generated by Mod_Security
Appreciate your help.

@Mohammad Al Awadhi,
It seems your host had installed or activated MOD_SECURITY Apache module and this is causing the issue. It prevents any form submissions with HTTP or HTTPS URL. Kindly contact you host and ask them to allow URLs in form submissions.
