I just noticed that too. I think the only videos not affected are on GA's YT channel...which has me concerned.

I uploaded all your videos to your YouTube account for you when you PMed me. We also have transferred about 17,000 other videos. If there are other videos backed up, we can get them and put them on YouTube, but if they are not backed up then we cannot.

Hmmmm...I guess that makes sense. Guess I could reapply the lists that haven't gotten backed up then. Thanks for the explanation...and I haven't forgotten what you did for me. I'm still grateful for that/

Some of you may already be aware, there are some details of our video restructuring mentioned over here:
http://forum.gameanyone.com/index.php?topic=25523

In short, what is happening is we are dropping our video hosting system in favor of YouTube.

To restate what I said before:
YouTube has always been a great companion service to GameAnyone, and as YouTube expands it becomes even clearer. We are already behind on some features (4K, 8K, 360 degrees, HDR, 60+ FPS). There are many features that are still yet to come, some of which we don't have the infrastructure to support.

It will be impossible for us to keep up with YouTube in terms of video technologies, or to even maintain the hosting that we are currently offering. We currently host about 84,000 exclusive videos. You can imagine the cost to maintain this.

In comparison: we index over 1.5 million YouTube videos.

Our video hosting will go dark on October 17. It is important that if you have any exclusive videos on GameAnyone that you do not have backed up locally, that you download and transfer these to YouTube before that day. We have already transferred nearly 10,000 videos to the official GameAnyone YouTube channel, which will allow these videos to remain active. We will transfer another 100 videos per day until the video server goes dark.

To download the videos of yours that have not been transferred, go here: http://www.gameanyone.com/?p=videodownload
This will provide links to each of the video files, as well as a count of the total videos at the bottom. You can use software such as the Firefox add-on DownThemAll, or other download managers to set up the downloads in just a few clicks.

Ideally we would continue our own video hosting and continue to improve it, but that is no longer possible. If there is anyone who doesn't have a fast enough Internet connection and needs assistance in transferring videos, please PM me asap and I can help by downloading the videos to my own drive to upload to YouTube over time.

Aaargh f***************k! So this is what's been going on with the exclusive videos. Even though I'm very late, could it still be possible to get my walkthroughs to GameAnyone's YouTube channel?

There are far fewer videos on vid.me that I don't think it would be too much of a benefit to support.

Vidme is being shut down anyway.
