Sometimes it feels like is trying to push users away. For the first time in nearly 8 years I've decided not to pay for their premium services, and now most of my videos (including my own wedding video) is hidden behind a paywall.

Been there. Had to pay to download my files again then I cancelled and said farewell. Scammers.

Thats my plan now as well. Pay, remove everything, never return.

We can send in a search mission to break them out. I’ll be the guy that signals to the others like a third base coach.

Same here. Sadly doesn’t make sense to upload to them anymore.

I just didn't realize they would hide hundreds of my videos. I thought I would just lose access to the premium features.

Speaking as someone who has built systems like this in the past, it’s hard. So hard that even the idea of doing it paralyzes the bravest of us. YouTube was days from broke when Google bought them. You won’t see another serious contender unless it comes from an established player.

Oh I don't pretend like I could run a better video hosting platform. But to hide my videos and make me pay to get them back means they get a paycheck from me today, but never again. Its short term gain solidifying their longterm doom.
