    I don't think there is much we can do, you are going to have to wait for Google to reply with an exact reason as to why your account was disabled and work it out with them.

    The raw videos or did you put music to them because music is copyrighted material.

    When I clicked your channel I get:

    I hope you get it sorted out, but as others said before me you have to contact them. No one can help you much here..

    "repeated or severe violations" indicates they warned you?

    Not necessarily. If someone, or some bot, decides to spam his channel with copyright claims the system will take the channel down until it is reviewed. This can happen pretty quickly before the owner of the channel ever gets notified.

    The problem with gameplay video is that if the game has copyrighted music playing in the background, and you have several videos of the game with the music in the background, it can get flagged and take the whole channel down.

    I agree with Newtekie, just wait to here back from Google for details on the problem(s).
    You can then resolve the issues to their satisfaction (and hopefully yours too) and continue on.

    It'll probably take a while. You still have the videos on your computer I assume?

    was reading tubetoolbox and various google search results, many accounts have been disabled on the day my account was disabled.
    all accounts show This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or claims of copyright infringement.
    none of the accounts were warned.
    and their whole google account has been suspended

    Sorry to hear about this, but emailing Google multiple times a day will just piss them off and push you to the back of the queue, so it won't help you.

    Yeah, storing all your precious content in the cloud is never a good idea, as you've found out. ALWAYS keep your stuff on your own hard drives (with backups, of course) and only put copies of them in the cloud.

    Having them uploaded on Youtube is not the same as cloud storage. Not at all.

    Yes it is. You're entrusting someone else to look after your data. Whether it's yt or a "proper" cloud storage service with service level agreements, they can lose your data one way or another or withold it if law enforcement orders them do it. Yes, you can lose your own data of course, but you can make it a virtual impossibility with proper local backups (including cloud based ones if necessary, for offsite backups).

    Oh and just look at the scandal that was the Megaupload takedown. Those users lost their data due to corrupt government intervention, didn't they? Same crap with yt here over effing "copyright". :rolleyes:

    Youtube and megaupload are meant to share stuff, YT videos and Mega anything. Dropbox is meant to store your stuff (yes it has a share function but its not the same afaik). Technically similiar but not otherwise.

    Strange alright. I have 26 videos that have music copyright claims and my account is in good standing, they just say those videos might have ads with them. Other than one video being blocked in all but 2 countries I've never had a problem on my account over the past 5 years.

    the uk that's all you need to know ;)
    hm hm scratches chin.gif maybe someone in your house has been using your account and that's why you've been banned i dont know.gif

    just out of curiosity were any of your videos critical of the games you were playing ?

    you could have been hacked and someone tried using your yt page to spam porn ,cp ,or bestiality scary.gif

    or as i have seen recently some Chinese posting links to crappy fake clothes (yes it still happens):shadedshu

    bide your time and i'm sure they will reply ;)

    if they don't ,you might have to contact your isp and get a new ip address ,make up a new user name and email :twitch:,

    my advice is rethink what you might have done to get in trouble :toast:

    HGunified : Hardcore Gamers Unified, so i mainly uploaded gameplay videos.
    69 videos were gaming ,21 were normal hacking cracking ( mostly rooting devices and tricks of windows) , and one video was a problem with my friend PC which i uploaded so that you guys could help out.
    there were some music claims , which are normal with gameplay videos, which said adds will appear near your videos , BUT NOT we will close your account after some random months(recently non of my videos had copyright claims).
    i dont know that my account was hacked or not(how can i know, my whole google account is closed).
    My ip is dynamic , plus i logined from different locations , that should not lead to suspension, i think.
    all my videos were my work, some tips and tricks i learnt, rest i dont know.
    it was a year of hardwork :(, and youtube disabled my account without warning.
    atleast they could have told me what the problem was, i could have sorted it out .
    EDIT: http://www.tubetoolbox.com/Forums/default.aspx?g=topics&f=44 (numerous post about accounts being suspended this week(BTW i didnt use tubetoolbox)
