You Tube yanked my videos

I posted two videos from my cell phone this past weekend. Remember the 50-caliber and flame thrower videos? They are now listed on You Tube as "currently unavailable".

I read through You Tube policies and I don't see any violations. Any ideas?

Yeah, no. Don't worry. Either Youtube, Blogger, the link, or something therein fails from time to time. I really think the feds are monkeying with kill switches, propaganda, limiting specific information, and such too. They are... practicing.

Obama will be the last hope for socialism/communism in America for some time. If we make it to another election, and it is clean, they won't get this chance again for generations. I think they are... hoping for something to "give them just cause". They are tinkering with everything information-wise, now that msm is dead on arrival. For now it is just occasionally annoying.

Although... it could just be servers being repaired, going down, or whatnot as well. There is that too. :p

I have almost 40 videos on my channel. Only two are "unavailable". And those are the ones from last weekend.

I wonder if a view into America's heartland is more than the liberals can bear.

A situation where American Citizens are legally exercising their right to keep and bare arms is in no way obscene, advocating violence, racist (though I didn't see any black people in the video on the sending or receiving end), etc.

It sounds as if somebody is second guessing the people who live in fly-over country.

Oh! I see. I first thought it was just a feed that went down. And, yep. Lefties do little tantrum fits (which they often still end up losing, even with Youtube mostly on their side). Youtube is STILL made up of contributors and such. If they jingle the bars too much, their masters help remind them that they are not, indeed, the masters.

I'll be curious to see how your thing is resolved. There should be a way to fight it. Just the monkeys throwing poo through the bars, but when it seems personal it's a little problematic.

That's OK, we don't want 'em watchin' us anyway.

We used to have a neighbor across the county road that was involved in historical reenactment. He had a 19th century mortar, an old muzzle loader. Well, he figured out that a can of cat food fit the bore perfectly. Every once in a while we'd here the roar of his tiny cannon and we'd all look up. If we got real lucky we'd see a can of Nine Lives flying across the ridge heading for the pasture down in the holler behind me. Of course, we'd all raise our beers in salute at the majesty of the whole thing.

I guess that sort of fun is frowned on out there in sunny California, huh?

Am I late to this party? Everything is just fine Opie.

Opus #6 said...

Yep, the vids came back. Maybe they got pulled for review and passed.

Kid said...

Opus, I can't imagine. Compare yours to this for example.

Those are some kind of small animal being shot btw.

Personally, I run into the copyright police on a regular basis, because I make my own fan videos to artists' songs that lack videos or make videos to remixes or bootlegs of the songs. You may want to get a secondary account at Vimeo as a backup.

WoFat said...

I think LL is right.

Had the guys been wearing keffiyeh and the women wearing burkahs, you would have been fine. ;)

Kid said...

Opus, fwiw, I still see these videos and they'll pay on youtube.

Opus #6 said...

Kid, they are back down again. What is going ON at You Tube!

Kid said...

Opus, I just clicked on it and it plays.

What are you seeing specifically? Maybe your browser isn't playing it? I'm using Firefox 12 at the moment.

Opus #6 said...

It says "this video is currently unavailable" but all of the other videos in my collection play with no problem. I don't understand. I am using Safari.

Kid said...

Hmmm, Ok, it's getting late tonight, but I can still play both from your page. Let's see if we can sort it out the next couple days.

Kid said...

Opus, I downloaded Safari, and the videos come up with Safari as well.

Hmmm. Do the vids ever come up for you ?

This may be difficult to solve without me flying out to California and working shoulder to shoulder with you. No, I'm not serious.. But it would be fun !
