YouTube Copyright Claim Bollocks!

It was my Twitch stream of the old Tehkan arcade game Star Force from 1984.

The whole video has been blocked for 1 minute and 53 seconds of VIDEO (not audio) from almost an hour of almost identical gameplay. This is complete bollocks and I’ve disputed the claim. The YouTube content matching AI is drunk and needs to piss off!

Anyway, this is the full Twitch stream, uncut: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/817613050

Also, and I’m aware this does break Twitch T&Cs but I’m hardly a high value streamer and this has seriously pissed me off, YouTube isn’t the only content sharing platform out there. This video is the same as uploaded to YouTube (scheduled for publication at 7pm – 24 hours after the stream) but hosted on LBRY/Odysee. Also, it takes up to 30 days to clear this bollocks!

Regular visitors will know I’ve been using LBRY for months. It really is a good alternative to YouTube. It does host some questionable content because it’s basically unmoderated by design, but we’re all human and we can choose to give that shit a miss. I fully recommend it to content creators, even as a backup (or for cases like this). It will automatically sync from YouTube if you don’t want the hassle of uploading twice so worthwhile giving a go.

I’ve put this is both the Negatives and Positives categories because while it’s a Negative against YouTube it’s a Positive towards LBRY/Odysee. Odysee is the more web friendly interface to the LBRY platform, go check it out!
