Yep this really really sucks. There is an option to dispute the copyright claim but eventually the video will get muted again :thumbsdown:

Yep, I stopped using YouTube to host the trailers and promos nearly 2 years ago now after they deleted over 300 on my vidoes.

Can't blame them to be honest, as they can get sued millions for hosting illegal content.

I use Vimeo.

Acronym the name of the vid, don't use tags or a description and I've yet to have one deleted. I've never even looked into their copyright policy. They host High Definition too.

The copyright stuff is killing the beauty of the internet. One thing is to illegally download music, another is using music for creative, fun purposes. I mean, it's not like anyone is getting a monetary benefit out of those videos. ¬¬

I tried vimeo, and they pulled my first video within 30 mins of it going live last year... probably to do with the fact they it got 19,000 hits in 30 mins lol.

Definitely! I hate so much when I go to Youtube and click on a video and they tell me: 'We can't show this video on your country' What the...! :cursing: I have tried proxies and all, but there's no way I can watch them. ¬¬

And what about Viacom suing Youtube? :cursing: They suck so much! Many of the Mtv, VH1 videos you could watch over there were the old ones, nothing they pass anymore on their new, crappy program schedule that has nothing to do with music. Now they created http://www.mtvmusic.com to watch full length videos... Yeah, right! Only if you live in the US. GFY, Viacom! :mad:

:cursing: That's the reason I started randomly naming my vids and posting them on YT, that way they can't pull them :lol: I can understand that they don't want to get sued but some of those vids are a creative outlet for the majority of us!
I *warned* you, but did you listen to me? Oh, no, you *knew*, didn't you? Oh, it's just a harmless little *bunny*, isn't it?

That's the only reason I even visit YouTube. For music vids and TV show clips etc. I know it's called YouTube, but personally I think waaaay too many people believe their random musings and mediocre cover versions are worth actual minutes out of someone else's life ¬¬

Yep, that works for me too :D

But I guess for someone like Dark who's vids take thousands and thousands of hits, that's not an option :|
