Has anyone thought about the other non Giant Bomb profiles like Jeff's? there are a lot of him and Ryan driving home. i see we have (helps to read ^^) grabbing them as well.

I'd like to see the Screened stuff get archived somewhere. There's a bunch of videos of just Alex, Rorie, and former whiskey media people just sitting down and watching films.

This. I want this. Someone do this. THIS.

Boy, this is geocities all over again. :/

@daiphyer: Like I said previously, this won't happen because screened used Justin.tv which is no longer a website. They dumped their archives several months ago.

Sorry. You may have to look for someone who already saved these, but otherwise they are gone forever.

I have asked about this in the NeoGAF thread.

However, I fear it may be too late...

I noticed that the Giant Bomb Unarchived YouTube channel uploaded the first Big Live Live Show, Live and it was immediately taken down due to multiple copyright claims from several companies. Um...I guess we need to figure out someplace else to put stuff like that. It would be really nice if stuff like that could go here on the site though.

Unfortunately, it appears to be broken now, but if you use a twitch downloader the second and third segments still work.

Thanks for linking that, can anybody upload the still functioning parts(I can watch it, for now...)? MY upload and download speeds are terrible. Would love to see that stuff archived somewhere before it gets deleted on twitch

hey does anyone know if any of the BLLSL 2 premium stream was archived or is that all gone, because the giant bomb premium twitch channel has nothing on it.

@hal9000: Thanks for spearheading this. You're on the front page of the site now.

An update about the Youtube channel some guys over at the GB NeoGAF thread are running: All unarchived TNTs have been uploaded. They're now working on other, longer videos too. The goal is to have every single unarchived GB video uploaded to that channel (or linked to it if the video is uploaded elsewhere, if it makes more sense than to just upload it to the channel) before Twitch blows up.

This is my favourite video so far uploaded:

#63 Posted by pinner458 (781 posts) -

Since this is on the front page now it'd be good if we could get some proper co-ordination going. IE What has been saved where and what hasn't, something a little more easy to organize than people posting on here just saying what they what. I have plenty of HD space if anything needs to be saved.

#64 Edited by AMyggen (3046 posts) -

@pinner458: Fattony has downloaded every unarchived GB video on Twitch. I'm not sure what he intends to do with them though.

Other than that, what I know is that the goal for the Giant Bomb Unarchived YT account is to upload every unarchived GB video (there's a Google doc with limited access someone over at GAF made which has the link to literally every unarchived GB video on Twitch, at least what could be found - there's also some super early stuff on Ustream). It's 300+ videos IIRC. We're co-ordinating that stuff in a Google doc, but only people who upload to the channel has access to it. Other than that, I'm not sure.

@amyggen: Cool, well bandwidth is also no problem for me so let me know if help is needed.

#67 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11737 posts) -

I think it would do for someone to sift through some of this stuff and pluck out highlights from some of these 4+ hour livestreams, but that can be done after all of this stuff is saved. I really appreciate what people are doing here, I haven't seen some of this stuff in years.

#68 Edited by Fattony12000 (7412 posts) -

I now have pretty much all of Giant Bomb's Twitch videos from 2010 to 2014, and in 720p from early 2011 onwards (there are still some videos that have URLs that you simply can't download or view any more). This equates to:

1,422 videos.

754 GB.

I have been working with fine NeoGAF user danserv, in order to try and get those last few videos downloaded. It may be possible to grab them, but in a lower quality.

Don't worry, just send me a couple of blank floppy discs and I'll copy the videos over and send them back to you.

#70 Posted by CornBREDX (5285 posts) -

I'm assuming you're still uploading as I don't see some stuff on the youtube channel yet.

NTFS: SD: SUV Event and the charity event from earlier this year (Operation Supply Drop I think it was called).

Also, maybe you already know, but the Big Live Live Show Live was taken down. Says it got flagged for copyright or something. I thought that only happened if you were monetizing? Whatever, youtube is lame sometimes.

#71 Posted by AMyggen (3046 posts) -

@cornbredx: Operation Supply Drop (at least the Danny part of it, not sure about Rorie) is already up on Youtube. But it's in several parts, so maybe it'll get uploaded in one part to the Unarchived channel? And yeah, stuff is being uploaded constantly to the channel.

#72 Posted by Popogeejo (615 posts) -

I know it's not GB content per se but I think the GB fans might be interested in Danny O'Dwyer and his quest to date some pigeons.

First two are from the main game, chasing after Shuu. Then it's the Holiday Star expansion with an episode per video (except for the two part finale!)

If you don't want to archive them then I respect that but I thought it'd be worth sharing it here just in case. Keep up the great work. FUNKY BARN!

#73 Posted by TonicBH (271 posts) -

Dumb question: Has anyone archived the Twitch archives of Jeff's individual streams? While most of them were "dumb" drive-by commentaries, I don't want us to lose him playing Last Ninja and trying to beat it for 4 hours. Not sure if the other bombers had dedicated Twitch channels with old stuff like that.

#74 Edited by Fattony12000 (7412 posts) -

I am currently missing these 82 Giant Bomb Twitch videos, is anyone able to help me find them? I am working to get this stupid image turned into a text file+cross reference it with names of videos that might be a lower quality (they get named differently depending on the quality, these ones here are all 720p).

Moving the videos from one (soon to be) Google service to another was never going to be easy:

This video contains content from WMG, SME, UMG, EMI Music Publishing, CD Baby, Toho Co., Ltd., Warner Chappell, UMPG Publishing, The Harry Fox Agency, Inc. (HFA), LyricFind, Songs Music Publishing, Koch Entertainment and Sony Pictures Movies & Shows, one or more of whom have blocked it on copyright grounds.

I'm so glad this is being done, thank you to all involved.

I watched the Funky Barn stream through again about a month ago, around the time I bought Funky Barn. It's truly something spectacular (the stream, that is).

#77 Posted by Rotnac (770 posts) -

Man, the reality of what is happening with Twitch by seeing this thread is really sinking in and it's really bumming me out. So much amazing content including stuff outside of the GiantBomb channel that'll be gone forever unless it's saved. Danny O'Dwyer has some good stuff on his personal Twitch account too.

#79 Posted by dr_mantas (1883 posts) -

You're doing a great job, guys. It's like when I realized I might want to listen to old hotspots, saw they had been gone for a while, and the only thing I could find was an old torrent that stopped seeding.

Preserve the past, so the future can happen.

#80 Posted by ghoti221 (44 posts) -

Kudos peeps for doing this. I never really went into the Twitch archives of GB (I came to the site rather late, and it's hard enough to keep up with content as is), there's some crazy beautiful stuff in there. Wow.

#81 Posted by zFUBARz (627 posts) -

I don't know if it's been mentioned but has anybody saved Ryan's stuff?http://www.justin.tv/#/w/4880410320/3

#82 Posted by mrfluke (5153 posts) -

I just want to say a massive and very genuine thank you to all of you guys who are archiving this stuff on youtube.

You are awesome.

#83 Posted by TheRealJpoe (134 posts) -

Not sure if this thread is still active, but are people grabbing the stuff off personal twitch accounts as well? I noticed a few un-archived daily dotas on Brad's page as well as some good stuff on both Jeff and Ryan's.

#84 Posted by rkofan87 (141 posts) -

thank you all this stuff is gold.

#85 Posted by Rebellion91 (24 posts) -

@marcusofadown: yes and no, the This Year guys that cover popular podcasts have it in audio form, however its buried deep in a 6 hour podcast.

#86 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (5508 posts) -

I just remembered yesterday about Patrick and Rorie's Dark souls streams. If I'm not mistaken, I believe Patrick played almost all of the game. He only played the first couple areas by himself, and then proceeded to stream the rest of the game until the very (triumphant) end. We'll effectively lose one of this site's (Unofficial) endurance runs forever. Here's a link to patrick's twitch page and here's a link to rorie's (Who played a fair amount of the game as well)

I sure do hope people are still at work archiving this stuff. Many thanks to those that are.

Edit: Well, never mind I guess. Patrick himself had the foresight to upload them on youtube in the first place. There's a few highlights from Rorie's on there too, but that about it for his streams from what I can tell.

#87 Edited by SaturdayNightSpecials (2387 posts) -

Don't overlook the ghetto GTA 4 stream Jeff and Ryan did in 2008. I'd still like to watch that sometime.

#88 Posted by Master_Funk (733 posts) -

Hey apart from the BLLSL, were there any other videos that were blocked by YT? I'd probably wanna keep local storage of these videos.

This one is very precious to me: http://www.twitch.tv/giantbomb/b/271112642

Title translates to "Terrible nonsense" from Japanese.

"She got a penitentiary body." - Ryan

Never seen Jeff laugh so hard.

For me, it's important to archive every little bit of terrible nonsense this site has pumped out over the years.

#91 Edited by fisk0 (4112 posts) -

Didn't Brad also stream some stuff from his personal account? http://www.twitch.tv/bradshoemaker/

Some Daily DOTA things from last year which I'm not sure if they were ever uploaded to GB.

Also, Gamespot's channel has been mentioned, but Danny O'Dwyer did some great stuff on his personal Twitch channel too: http://www.twitch.tv/dannyodwyer

I also hope someone's archiving Jeff Green's Dark Souls streams.

Also, when it comes to related streams, here's Harmonix' Ryan Davis Memorial Stream: http://www.twitch.tv/harmonixmusic/b/427716886

And ... Dave Snider used to have a justin.tv account, but I assume it's lost like Screened. :(

Used to be available at http://www.justin.tv/enemykite

#92 Edited by mosespippy (4180 posts) -

Does anyone want to grab the Sid Meier's Golf and Headboard practice sessions of of Ryan's account? I don't know how. twitch.tv/taswell.

Edit: Seems like someone got Sim Golf not too long ago.

I'm certain they said that Joey had (almost) all of it on hard drives and they weren't sure what they'd do with it.

It might be good to mirror all these videos in a torrent or something, I don't trust Youtube to keep everything up.

This is up on https://www.youtube.com/user/giantbombunarchived/videos :)

All the unarchived videos from the GB Twitch channel should be up on that channel now (BLLSL 2010 was taken down due to copyright bullshit, so not sure what will happen there). The NeoGAF dudes who run the channel have begun uploading a bunch of stuff from Jeff's personal Twitch channel, some stuff from Ryan's and Dan's channels etc.

It's great that you guys got so much of this stuff. Looking back at some of these vids makes me so sad, though. I miss Ryan so much. Miss him like a motherfucker. :..(
