Hello,

the sitemap is empty (no videos indexed) from what I see, hence the error message.

Note that only videos from this sources can be detected by sitemap generator bot:
http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/video-sitemap.html
YouTube, Google Video, Vimeo, Dailymotion, MTV

(since they provide API that allow to get video details like play duration/thumbnail etc)
