    Help with what? I don't think anyone at TPU works for YouTube/Google. I don't understand what kind of help you want. I lost my original account a couple years ago. I started a new one.

    ok, would wait for their reply as this the only option.
    If nothing works out, would give in and make new account

    Have you tried calling Google instead? I've had very good follow-up with Google when I call them as opposed to emailing them.

    I just got my first strike on my account today from a complaint by the UFC on a 3 minute music video I put together. It takes three copyright strikes to get your account shut down and it takes a lot to get a strike. I have over 20 videos with acknowledged copyrighted music, all that does is display ads on those videos as the software recognizes the audio from the publishers. It isn't until someone actually files a complaint against you that it's a problem so you must have pissed off some big dogs or done/said something stupid or had inappropriate videos up.

    You're notified about the strikes, if you've been shut down for other reasons you should have a good look through your emails as they'll send you an email too. It's not likely you're going to get shut down overnight, so this does seem strange. I'm interested in hearing what YouTube/Google have to say to you.

    If you dont have enough space to keep them on your local hard drive, there are online solutions, many of them free.

    Dropbox gives you 3GB free.

    Microsoft would jump on that very quickly. It is very possible that was it (it's still pirating which is still illegal to begin with). Not exactly a wise thing to put on YouTube IMHO.

    Best to start with a clean slate. Stick to the gaming videos and keeping away from any tricks, flaws, hacks or anything out of the ordinary. There's tons of video tutorials on how to install and crack the latest games and software and all kinds of other shady activity on YouTube even full length TV series and movies, you may very well find you'll get hit before them. It's not something worth risking if you're moving up with a channel of your own.

    What gets me is that they didn't give you a clear reason for the takedown and Google refuse to talk to you.

    Those copyright holders have waaay too much power and constantly abuse the system like this. I remember the days when you could post whatever you liked on YouTube and sod the copyright cartels. Those were the good days. Just look how they've gagged TPU from discussing anything potentially piracy related. We can't even post links. :rolleyes:

    It stinks and I feel for ya, man.

    Next time, keep master copies on your own hard drives, with plenty of backups. You could also save encrypted versions of them in the cloud for extra piece of mind. Encrypted versions to stop the bastards surreptitiously looking at your files and quietly deleting them. Seriously, you may not even get a warning that it's happened. Just quietly gone.

    Free keys for people who have legit Windows to upgrade, not people who have a pirated copy. Pirating the OS before you do this is still illegal.

    That key is being given away free and clear on their website, so there's nothing dodgy with making a video about it. Look, I'll even post the link here:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/feature-packs

    I can't imagine them pulling your account for that. Since you weren't told why, everyone assumes that this was the reason, when in truth, we just don't know.

    Yup but my video said free upgrade WMC for windows 8 KEYS
    that might have pissed them.
    well i also showed my VITA running psp games , which are not on store, may be sony got mad.
    may be ubisoft got mad because i showed how to clear killing crusader without being detected :banghead:
    i would never know
    atleast youtube should give me some of my videos back.
    BTW when my account was active , i was recieving large no. of dislikes on all my videos, that might be the case.
    But i have decided to make new channel, would stick to coding, gaming and may be some hacking (because these are the videos i have backup off :(, gaming and coding videos are gone :cry: )

    This might be the most likely reason, perhaps. Still a bummer, whichever way you look at it.

    It should be under "thread tools" (if you cannot find that, use control+f to search for it).
