    Have you tried the link at the bottom of the page that says "contact us"? Not trying to be a smart ass, but I'd like to know where that takes you? If it takes you to youtube contacts or Google's contacts? If it is youtube contacts, then maybe you can try to contact google.

    I came across this:

    YouTube, LLC
    901 Cherry Ave.
    San Bruno, CA 94066
    USA
    Phone: +1 650-253-0000
    Fax: +1 650-253-0001

    Perhaps you can call them, or send them registered mail.
    Mindweaver says thanks.

    Well that's not much help for you. I'd try the information BP posted, and see where that gets you. Good luck! :toast:

    well i have been posting in google product forum
    Mr bkc56 has been helping there, he wrote : "I heard back from Google that the investigation is on-going. I have no idea what is actually happening, but you haven't been forgotten (yet). They suggested a couple day, but given the weekend I'm thinking next week.



    If you don't get an update, post here again, say Wednesday, and I'll poke Google again."

    hope i get back my channel bkc56 has been highly helpful(is he anyone from TPU??)

    the uk that's all you need to know ;)
    i did read somewhere on youtube that computer games (even ones you own) are copyrighted
    ,and saddly bud that means the video and music from any game ,

    so unless you actually own the company that made the game ,technically you have no legal right to post any of the aforementioned ,

    so obviously someone didn't like the way you portrayed their game and sent youtube a takedown email

    are you using tor or anything else that could be showing your ip that others could be abusing ?

    They said they removed it because of pornographic content, not because of copyright infringement. Typically they won't ban you for copyright immediately. They will warn you first, but with questionable content like pornography, they have zero tolerance. Not to say that Mafia unloaded porno, but his account could have been compromised and someone else may have.

    All in all, I can't say I'm incredibly sympathetic. Anything that is important should be saved and backed up. If it's only on YouTube there is no getting back the full quality version.

    I think there is a valuable lesson to be had from this thread, not with keeping copies of your own stuff but rather changing your password on a regular basis. If it was hacked, it must have been someone near you because if someone has an IP far away from all the other login attempts it will block the login even if the credentials are valid. I know this because Google told me to change my password some time ago because someone from China attempted to gain access to my account with the proper credentials.

    No need to do it often. Just keep it long and update it regularly and you should be fine.

    Think about passwords this way and it won't be too bad.
