    It appears YouTube are closing down slot-video accounts. Some major ones are gone, even one I had with 2 old videos (fortunately a spare account at YT.)
    Whether this is because they deem the channels are commercial or there are copyright issues I don't know.

    Be warned, BACK-UP any videos you have on there.:mad:

    As I said in my OP, I don't know I can only speculate. YT are a law unto themselves.

    At the moment it may be accounts linked to affiliate sites only, but it will become clearer later.

    Update: It appears YT have silently changed their T&C's to prohibit gambling-related content, or content deemed to promote or encourage gambling. This is why they are tracking down users and closing their accounts if they predominantly offer this type of content. It seems they have started with the major accounts and will be gradually eliminating them. The change came into effect this weekend and appears to be due to upsetting authorities in countries where gaming is prohibited or not advertised.

    Yes, I have heard Vimeo is the preferred alternative now. Be seeing them in the 'winner videos' thread soon...

    Our YT channel was closed and I just finished writing a lengthy blog post about it when I saw this here.

    We got several of our videos flagged in less that 24 hours which resulted in three strikes and suspension of the channel. I thought this was the works of a competitor looking to close down the channel but after reading your post it seems YT just wants to get rid of gambling content then.

    It would have been a bit better if they could have been clear about the situation instead of closing down the channel on unfounded grounds which made me spend time on an appeal. If they would have just said straight out, "we don't want gambling stuff anymore" I would have just moved on. It's their site and they do with it as they please, I can't really be upset about that.

    The big PITA here is not only that we have these videos embedded across the site within our slot reviews and so on and it's going to take ages to manually go in and remove all of those embeds on like 500 pages.

    Here's the blog post explaining how it went down... You must register/login in order to see the link.

    Casinomeister channel is up and running - but then there are no casino ads there.
    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    Really a frustrating situation - especially for a lot of affiliates that have gambling related channels, and are finding themselves getting shut down. These are the risks of using "free" websites - you are at their whim. And the unfortunate thing is that these few websites garner the majority of the power on the Internet. Google, Facebook, Youtube = puppetmasters. What they say goes.

    What doesn't make sense is how YouTube allow cannabis growers, And smokers to show footage everyday of their crops and show the product and how to make cannabis oil and what not yet they are not closed down even know cannabis is an illegal drug. If there going to not condone gambling they shouldn't condone drugs either. Just saying :mad:

    Which channels are we talking about here? All the major B&M slot channels are still up, those with thousands of subscribers.

    the main 1 in my subs was slotjunkies, searching for it gives a blank entry for the channel now with a violation message (you can see the ! icon for the top result) - along with a casino paid advert courtesy of youtube :mad: time to run adblock on youtube again,

    edit, and add gamingslots to the list....

    The same way everything else big business does makes sense, I'm sure it comes down to money. Somebody threatened to pull their ads or start a media campaign against youtube and they folded. If somebody who supplies youtube with money decides they don't like the cannabis related videos they will go too.

    Yes I woke up to this this morning. It's a wake-up call in more than one way :D

    I am moving all the Slotjunkies videos to Vimeo but will take a few weeks. I already host a few on there and it works well.

    I don't mind if they want to play it this way but to do it on a Saturday night with no warning is piss poor form. Does make you realise how Google controls your life though. I am going to be far more conscious of that from now on.
