I think we can all watch youtube and vimeo while they get this sorted out. Sure it’s a business, but more than that i think it’s really a labor of love. It’ll all get worked out in time.

Have you reached out to MsDebbie P and Martin via PM?

Both MsDebbie and Martin have commented on this more than once. Bottom line is, They disabled video because of spam and they are going to make video embedding work the same way photo embedding does. I totally understand that, but it’s been over a month. Why not wait to remove the video feature until after then new way is ready?

I proposed a solution in the site feedback section to add a approval process as a means of keeping spammers away. Not sure which solution would be faster.

John, last I knew this site was part of Escalate Media. Escalate Media touts their size and work with fortune 500 companies on their website. I guess I assume they can handle this problem in a reasonable amount of time.

If I’m wrong, and it’s just Martin, I’ll gladly be more patient. But I still think they should restore the old embed feature until the new one is ready.

I agree with you Stumpy. I’ve been holding off on updating a video tutorial blog for a few weeks now, because of this issue… don’t really want to write a blog that says “here’s a link, go watch it there, and then come back to read the rest of what I have to say”

I must also admit that I don’t recall having seen any spam that abused it either…

This is the site feedback section, Wayne. But I suppose more than one thread about this can’t hurt…

I never saw the problem with spammer videos, not saying it wasn’t a problem, just that I never saw it; but I have to wonder if the real problem wasn’t the 1500 new spam accounts per day and the board being under-moderated in general. I’m not criticising the job that any one person is doing, only saying there probably needs to be more people doing it. There are plenty of even keeled users here who would likely volunteer, if asked, to help moderate. In closing I’ll say that I have noticed a big improvement in stopping spam and I appreciate the efforts of those running things.

I assumed it was just Martin and MsDebbie – if the site is owned by (edit) an inc 500 (end edit) company that makes a huge difference!

In the words of Gilda Radner… “Nevermind!”

I don’t think Escalate is fortune 500, their site just says they WORK with fortune 500 companies. As long as those companies don’t need video embedding…. sorry, I couldn’t help it :)

In no way is Escalate Fortune 500. I think they purchased the site from Martin or something like that and he does some work for them on it. In the early days it was just Martin.

Never heard of Escalate Media before. They look like an advertising company though, like DoubleClick. I don’t see where this site is owned or operated by them.

Looks like Martin is the developer of the site, so he’s probably coding it all on his own.

Interesting. I wonder how much of a hand they have in things. Funny that they have an “Advertise With Us” link that’s broken. I wonder if their role is to simply manage revenue on the site, while Martin retains the responsibility of developing, or at least directing the development of it.

Personally I like opening videos on separate tabs anyways. Then I can keep the video playing and listen to it while I’m continuing to browse the site.

Opps….
An 80’s flashback!
(Please go to “Youtube” to view the appropriate video. I’d post a link, but that would be too much work.)

I want embedded video back!!!
It makes reading/following a blog/tutorial much more fluid.

Please,

Stumpy,

Wondering why your humor hadn’t crossed my email. Are you running on your web site?I don’t receive an email from you these days.

I watch here because you started here, but you have evolved and I look forward to you and Mike. Have you looked for sponsors? Maybe you LJ fans could support this?

Of course you’d have to “Tommy Mac” it.

Heck I had to go back to working for a bigger concern.

Doc- We’re setting up an email list for the website, but in the meantime the home page is designed so you can see the latest of everything on one page.

We do have sponsors, actually. Several for the website. I haven’t allowed any sponsors for the show though.

Regardless, I always post the latest blog, video and everything else here. I like to support this site, and I will continue to do so. I just need to have the ability to embed video again!

I wish I could give you a date that the videos will be up and running again.

It was deleted at the time because we were having a SEVERE “emergency” spamming issue that had to be dealt with immediately…. now we are working on the “fixes”.

Again, I apologize for the loss and the inconvenience.

Maybe they are just worried that Stumpy may woodwork in buff sometimes and videos of that may be disturbing…
