All of a sudden I can’t access my favorite videos! Tom Fidgen, Paul Sellers and others… You Tube has gone into some unrecognizable web page and it won’t let me view the videos I like to watch. Doesn’t seem to matter whether I’ve logged in or not. When I manage to pull up a video, it appears to be coming from “m.you.tube.com” or some other not-quite-right address. Or some advisory that the video is ‘not available on a mobile device’ ...which I’m not even using!
According to Forbes website, You Tube is now a part of the Google empire, and there are new policies in effect which Google shares in the revenue from posted videos. Not ad revenue, I assume the article referred to royalties, which Google now takes a slice of! Independent artists who are not generating revenue from their video posts are getting left out in the cold.
Soon, it seems, the money-making video posts will all you’ll be able to see, and the guy who wants to post his dovetail-making video will have a hard time.
Can anyone shed some light on this? Or was I just re-routed through some Malware? Yikes.
