All my Vimeo videos gone! Copyright bollocks.

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness » 22 Feb 2018 12:01

This morning, I had my first copyright infringement notice from Vimeo. But I was surprised that they had highlighted ALL 270+ of my videos as containing copyright infringements and have deleted ALL OF THEM!!

I was not aware that Vimeo went after this sort of thing as vigorously as YouTube, but maybe they do, or maybe they are beginning to.

I also recently had a block put on my account as I had uploaded far too many videos. They said I had actually exceeded my upload limit by several GB! Funny that they let me in the first place.

I have written to Vimeo, but I do not expect to hear from them. If they do bother to reply, I expect there is nothing I can do about anything as each video contains snippets of music. But only snippets.

So many hours, days, etc. of DX videos are no more. This includes videos of antennas and many other things.

Small lie there. It's my new Vimeo page which has had all the videos removed. ALL the videos with my first Vimeo account have been marked with copyright infringement notices. Many are still visible to me. Not sure is they are visible to anybody else.

The original question still exists: If they are going to mark the briefest snippets of 'below-noise' audio as blatant copyright infringement, how come there are still countless user pages, many containing hundreds of full songs, videos and entire albums on there? Some of them have been up there for years and years.

Even when I have uploaded videos with non-copyright, royalty-free music as a backing, they have been flagged the same. I guess the recognition system is far from perfect, so why don't they employ real people to do the analysis? They can certainly afford to with all that money they've saved through not paying taxes.

Today, I discovered that you cannot delete videos from Vimeo. You have to buy their premium service to do this. Worth remembering if you are uploading temporary files.

Have uploaded lots of my vids here

they do not seem to care much they have music on and do get more views than twitch plus no muting.
but you cannot do playlist yet.

Thanks for this.

We definitely need to find something more suitable for our needs than YT and Vimeo.

By the way, how did your trip go to Skegness? Looking forward to reading about it elsewhere. Did you get a log?

Thanks for these.

Good job that you are coming to Skegness in May. Conditions right now are quite useless. Having said that, I hear a few regular Germans on FM, some peaking noise-free.

well vidlii.com seems OK so far had a few views only thing is poor playback and 15 min time but should be OK for DX videos.
Even this gives me more views than twitch to.

Looks like vidlii may end up like most the other sites now and also may be closing as they have disabled registrations.
Just seems no one can compete with youtube though my BitChute still seems to be going.

As I just posted to in another thread, Vimeo are no longer blocking my videos. The total ban has been lifted!

Don't ask!
