Youtube Petty Annoyance............

Postby AussieDodger » Thu Sep 11, 2008 1:57 pm

G'day


I had a handful of youtube videos bookmarked, Frank Zappa music on SNL from 1976 and 1978 (the Peaches And Regalia one rocks the house). I have found that NBC and/or youtube have had them removed.
What the hell is the point of them doing this? They aren't going to make any money from selling them, and I can't find anywhere to buy these particular clips, so are they hogging this classic footage just because they can?

I don't see the point of removing stuff like this if they aren't going to immediately turn around and sell it.

<Rant over> :-/ !+)

Interesting. There's a guy I subscribe to that had all kinds of recent complete matches of Dragon Gate and Pro Wrestling NOAH (both from Japan) and for some reason, Youtube suspended him while there are a few out there that have them around. Who knew Youtube cared about Japanese copyrighted work. :-b

Have you tried doing a hard refresh on that page?

I've had a video pulled up and refreshed it to get the "no longer available" message. Only after a hard refresh did the video reload. I think they have caching issues from time to time.

Nah, I deleted them from my youtube bookmarks so I can't. :-C

By the way, I clicked on a Borat SNL clip just now, and that's no longer available either. NBC are evil b______s. :-t

I'm not sure if this pertains to old SNL clips, but I think I heard/read somewhere that NBC is putting their stuff back in iTunes. They might have already, I don't follow the NBC happenings too closely. Maybe somebody can elaborate for me.

It does suck that I can't bring up my favorite SNL skits from time to time. That was the main reason I visited Youtube. :-t

It's still stuff that they hold the rights to and could sell someday. There are apps to actually download YouTube video so that probably influences their decision to take it down.
