Default Video editing and copyrights

So whats the deal with this?! I cant upload videos online without the music track being taken out or the video just being completely blocked.

I'm trying to launch a website, but with out any videos it just wont work.

Should I be changing file names? Is there some way around it? Or do I just try and get rights for that specific song to use?

I'm hoping some of you guys know whats up with this. The random span of knowledge on this board is amazing.

A few of my videos with music on top of it have been removed from the net over the past few weeks. When you find out what the deal is, let me know!

Yea, youtube and myspace. Myspace just outright blocked the video and youtube kept it up, but its silent.

I was more or less trying those places first just to help promote the website. Now I'm wondering if I'm gonna run into trouble if I upload the videos with music on my own .com.....?

Thats shitty dude. The videos just aint the same without music. And keeping just the wind noise without music is ******* terrible too.

Yeah, YT and MS have become quite the video **** Buzzkillers with videos and music. I hear Vimeo or whatever it is, is a good site. Could always try streetfire if it's got car content.

I'd like to know how the hell they verify if you got permission to use xyz song and on top of that , I bet labels want an arm and a leg for permission even if you're not making a video for any other purpose other than to put on YT/MS/whatever.

Do you have the bandwidth to host the videos yourself?

If so, check out this software:

JwPlayer (its a flv player)
LongTail Video | Home of the JW Player

and then get FFMpeg or some other program to convert your videos to flv (flash video) format. You will fly under the radar infinitely longer if you host them yourself, if not forever.

Is this site about your longboarding stuff? Those vids are always awesome to watch!

I'm uploading it to vimeo. Seems like they only care that you made the video yourself, rather than just posting up other peoples videos. Doesn't shout copyright right on the first page or anything. Plus a 500mb a week limit is pretty awesome! Thanks for the hookup!

Yea, I was wondering that too. They talk about getting verified that you have permission. I wonder what will happen if I just click the link that says "yes, i have permission".

Thanks for the info man, I'm gonna check it out after dinner and see what its about. Ultimately I want the videos on my .com, but for now just to advertise I'd like to get a couple of the trailers out on the web.

Yep, it is indeed the longboarding! We've taken it to the next level as far as riding goes. So now I feel comfortable throwing some trailers together to prep for the website launch. I'm hoping to get a good response from them and hopefully start getting a group to come out with us to bomb the hills.

We're going to start competing and want to put our names out there for some sponsors and see what happens.

I'm not sure how popular vimeo is, but they seem to have a good amount of content already. I'll give this trailer some time and depending on hits and responses that should motivate me to get some others done.

Just sucks cause I'd really like to ***** them out on youtube and myspace as well.

Trailer #1 for longboardable.com on Vimeo
