Re: YouTube Is About To Delete Independent Artists From Its Site

YouTube is going to choke on their own shit eventually. There's always an option to move away from YouTube and I'm sure all users affected by this will do it and only active people will be those big well-paid youtubers and massive multi-channel networks with their partners and their fandoms. It's getting worse with every year. People complain but it seems YouTube doesn't care and force to get used to it. This will happen, even how controversial it is, because they believe that majority of people still going to continue using YouTube, watch their favourite YouTubers and listen what is "hot" right now and dominates in music charts, it's a huge part of people daily basis.

adblock'd.

Also, if you delete your Google+ account you have no access to your YouTube channel, isn't that just silly? I've just found out about it.

Re: YouTube Is About To Delete Independent Artists From Its Site

Not breaking news but I'm interested to see the effects in a year.

Essentially, Youtube is paving the way for someone else to take up the niche of cool and independant and free. A lot of .com's will scrabble for it and in about a year we'll see who is winning.

Then that free and independant place will get bought over, someone will make a lot of short term money.

The cycle will begin again.

All of this has happened before and will happen again

I don't quite get this - I assume this only applies to channels that have an advertising/parnership contract deal? A musician uploading free tracks with no such contract will still be able to do so and the videos will still be able to be watched for free, no?

Re: YouTube Is About To Delete Independent Artists From Its Site

I wonder how many people complaining about this have donated even $1 to Wikipedia this week? Everyone wants shit for free but they're unwilling to donate a meager amount to something they use all the time. Not necessarily the people in this fine horticulturally influence thread (of fine silk. i make you a dress fool. wear it with pride) but it's a trend I've noticed elsewhere.

Strange comment . There's too much content available on youtube that I enjoy (podcasts, music etc.) for me to dismiss the whole of youtube like that. It's like not going to one of the biggest libraries in your town because the librarian smells like potatoes.

Re: YouTube Is About To Delete Independent Artists From Its Site

I'm not gonna lie, I sub'd to plenty of channels that I enjoy to watch. It involves comedy ones like FilthyFrank, Jackfilms, funny let's players like Cr1tikal, Vinesauce and Inside Gaming (love this guys), dumb cartoons from Oney and psychicpebbles... There are plenty of good contest in YouTube. Also, YouTube Poop. Those are the best thing in da internet. Especially with Hank Hill.

Re: YouTube is about to delete independent artists from its site.

It hasn't happened yet right? And this is just music? Sure that would kind of suck if you couldn't just pop any old song on yt and stream it. I agree with fid, they are just trying to make a dollar off their site and you cant really blame them. No more free candy, kids. (but then, it appears like it hasnt happened yet anyway)

I hate to say it, but I'd be fine if youtube went under. My local library won't, and that's what counts (for me anyway).

Re: YouTube is about to delete independent artists from its site.

The points made by Stercogburn made me realise it's not all doom and gloom, but it would still be a shame to have the amount of embedded YouTube videos on IDMf suddenly become unusable.

Almost as bad as the previous purging.

Re: YouTube is about to delete independent artists from its site.

YouTube has been on a steady decline in my opinion. I am really hoping for more alternatives. I must say for normal DIY videos and comedies and documentaries and stuff, Vimeo has nice features and no annoying ads. I would use it for my own videos, but I don't have anything uploaded yet. Another bone-us is that they don't censor stuff for sexual content.

Re: YouTube is about to delete independent artists from its site.

So just as SC goes down the shitter, and we all gradually move over to Hearthis, all the while keeping our SC's active "just in case"... so too does YouTube. Does this mean we all must gradually move over to Vimeo all the while keeping our YT's active "just in case"?

FFS, yet more sites to manage.
