TL:DR - YouTube changed policies in April to drop videos with certain types of hacking content, which was recently picked up on twitter. We accelerated our plans to host our own content and are opening it up to the wider community.

    “Firstly, back up your YouTube channel now. You can do this via Google Takeout. Alternatively you can download the content via Youtube-dl but the takeout route is better.”

    Every security channel needs to this immediately if they don’t already have the local copies. If not PeerTube, we can always BitTorrent the shit for old times sake. :)

    “You can (and should) also back up your content to the Internet Archive. “

    Also nice that Lobsters already does that on our submissions. I’d rather it be the U.S. one since their longevity is best. Smaller one might fall to lack of money or something in the future. There’s also the better possibility of just submitting to both. Maybe Lobsters does that.

      ^ Looks like it was web.archive.org until @jcs changed it to archive.is in 2017 because it sounds like there were issues with getting a copy saved in a timely manner. But it also looks like it would be trivial to do submit to both.
