**edit**

I pulled these videos down recently and I posted this message further down into this thread .....

You are correct, they are not on the subscriber panel and thats initially what compelled me to do this in the first place. But the content still isn't mine and I didn't receive permission. Looking back on it I feel bad for doing this in the first place. My desire to see this content in a mobile accessible format overwhelmed my good sense. And quite honestly, I didn't think anyone would notice the pull down (how wrong was I?).

And then a little later ...

Clarifying a few points... I originally paid very close attention to not upload anything to Youtube that was already available on Giantbomb. And I had ads disabled. In the end, though, I felt it best to respect the original owners rights to publish these videos where and how they pleased.
Perhaps I am wrong or jumped the gun, but there you go. Now you know why.

Holy shit, awesome work duder. I misse a lot of these and it'll be a joy to get caught up.

#6 Posted by TruthTellah (9427 posts) -

haha. That StarCraft II Grudge Match is hilarious. All of the StarCraft II stuff is fantastic.

Everyone owes it to themselves to watch those videos.

I at first didnt have much of a clue on the use....then i realized I had said this to myself befor. I am a premium Member and Id like to sit back and watch the archives on my xbox.

Took me a minute. Thanks for that. I can catch up on the 2010 BBLL Show.

#8 Posted by TheHT (11682 posts) -

That After Hours video is a fever dream on demand.

#9 Posted by TepidShark (1061 posts) -

Looks great. Lot of great stuff on there. Both Kinect live streams would be cool to have on there as well.

#10 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

Dang, would've been cool to see all TNTs in one playlist and in order but this will have to do. 
Still though, thanks for the awesome work! now I have a reason to just sit down and watch a few of them since TV is boring :P

Same here, I watch a fair bit of GB on my Xbox, to be able to watch stuff on there while I work on my laptop is spectacular. Great work duder!

#14 Edited by DjCmeP (1148 posts) -

These are still on Justintv so I don't get why you had to upload them to youtube...

EDIT: But thanks anyway...I haven't seen the After Hours video.

#15 Posted by ervonymous (1297 posts) -

Kudos man, never saw the Xboxalypse and Bad Company 2 ones.

That can probably be arranged! I have no ETA on that though.

Would be awesome if it happened one day but no reason to rush into anything if you don't feel like it's needed :P 
As I said, I like what you've done already and I'm currently watching TNTs of old, so I'll return to doing just that while I finish up the rest of my work.

Aren't they all on twitch anyway? 
I don't know how happy they are to have somebody else hosting them on youtube.

#19 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4847 posts) -

Isn't this premium content? So you're taking their paid content and putting it on YouTube for free?

Unless I'm mistaken, which I may well be, that's a bit ehhh.

No, I did not bring anything over to YouTube that was already on giantbomb.com as premium content. The old TNT's (the bulk of what I put up on YouTube) were never posted to the site.

Oh right. In that case, I <3 you.

#21 Posted by BlackLagoon (1475 posts) -

Lots of great stuff here, thanks for making it more accessible!

#22 Edited by Akyho (1692 posts) -

@mnzy: Twitch and Justin.tv are the same thing. Of witch the apps arnt very good.

I do wonder about if GB is ok with it. Which case its upto them. However I think he has set himself up to only put up stuff from a year ago or even stuff before the Gamespot switch over.

Nothing up so far is up to date. Hell I was sitting watching GB after hours I never knew excisted, seeing Ryan and Rori absolutely drunk, while its confusing as to weather Jeff is drunk or just being Jeff.

Actually never mind Chad answered perfectly. I am fine with that. If it isnt up then the only way GB can happily take it down is to post it up in the premium section properly. Still the Big big live live show should stay anyways.

#23 Posted by Etaber (160 posts) -

You've done the Lord's work here. I can't believe how many of these I had forgotten.

#24 Posted by TepidShark (1061 posts) -

@chadj said:

Thanks guys!

@TepidShark: I'm pretty sure most of first Kinect live stream (the one that fell into the time range I was working with) ended up on the site as Quick Looks.

That is true, but there is hijinks that they get up to in the breaks that I think people would like to see again.

#25 Posted by laserbolts (5352 posts) -

Looks like all this stuff has been taken down. That's a shame since I was just starting to go through the TNTs that I have missed.

#26 Posted by kuz101 (209 posts) -

So, why where these taken down? I was just beginning to watch all these forgotten streams.

#27 Posted by animathias (1194 posts) -

That's a shame. Hopefully GB themselves is going to put these back up in some capacity. It'd suck for them to ask someone to take them off of YouTube so they can sit in the awful Justin.tv or *shudder* Ustream archives for eternity.

#28 Posted by chadj (12 posts) -

My apologies for being brief. To clarify, neither Giantbomb nor CBSi asked me to take those down.

Then why did you do it?

#30 Posted by chadj (12 posts) -

My conscience got the best of me. Thats not my content to do with as I please.

#31 Posted by Animasta (14718 posts) -

they are literally not on the subscriber panel, I don't see how conscious has anything to do with it (considering they themselves didn't take it down)

#32 Posted by Funkydupe (3321 posts) -

Yay turned to Nay.

#33 Posted by chadj (12 posts) -

You are correct, they are not on the subscriber panel and thats initially what compelled me to do this in the first place. But the content still isn't mine and I didn't receive permission. Looking back on it I feel bad for doing this in the first place. My desire to see this content in a mobile accessible format overwhelmed my good sense. And quite honestly, I didn't think anyone would notice the pull down (how wrong was I?).

You made enough noise that everyone knew what you were doing, mods and GB crew must have noticed and never said anything.

You were open about it and it was stuff not readily available to premium members or not. So it was taken as free content that was not locally hosted.

Yes the ideal world would be GB host them...however it hasn't happened and probably wont ever happen.

While the GB crew and mods couldn't say "yes do it!" they didn't say "no don't do it." as I assume it would cause problems if they did say yes.

Did you monetize the videos? That would be you profiting from content not yours. Which is wrong. I assume you were not and thus forth you were not doing something directly bad.

Even the other week there, a person made a thread saying "Guy on youtube is stealing GB content!" everyone looks and goes "Oh that. Its the GB Archive, a nice user put up. It was all stuff that isn't on the website and not easily available. So it was nice of that guy to archive."

The mods surely saw that. No one said anything. You never got a warning on these boards or on youtube to take it down. Until such a thing happened it was to be presumed no problems. Once you are warned or asked to take them down, then yeah comply.

So it seems all a little over sensitive. I understand your position however if the fiery hand was to strike the GB Youtube Archive you had put up. Then it would have done so sooner and quickly.

I agree it shouldn't be up there, if you want it pay up if you don't tough.

TOUGH LOVE.

#36 Posted by Funkydupe (3321 posts) -

@Hizang: But some of the stuff isn't even premium content nor is it hosted otherwise.

You missed the point. You haven't read anything. Its not the stuff that is subscriber content. Its not available at all on this website. That was the point of putting it on Youtube. It was recordings from the past that wasnt put up ont he sight. Meaning the only way to watch it was Live. Or trawl through Twitch.tv/ Justin.tv archives. To find these recordings.

They are not behind the pay barrier nor are they easily accessible for free members and on some cases not accessible to anyone!

Ok If you are failing to understand. Find me right now. The Giantbomb After hours with Matt Rorie, Ryan Davis and Jeff Gerstmann drunk off their asses sitting in the dark talking nonsense.

Also point me were I can see the EA Sport MMA TNT on this site that isnt a link Twitch.tv found here. http://www.twitch.tv/giantbomb/b/331303435

#40 Edited by Fattony12000 (7596 posts) -

Yo, maybe just drop the BombGuys a message and see if it's cool? Maybe kick their asses into gear to get round to archiving it themselves?

No one has told me to stop doing the stupid shit I do with their video content.

#41 Edited by Hizang (8532 posts) -

@Akyho: Sorry, I jumped the gun a little, still I really don't think we have any right to complain. There is an insane amount of Giant Bomb content out there, I'm not going to miss anything. We should never expect everything to be archived.

#42 Posted by chadj (12 posts) -

Clarifying a few points... I originally paid very close attention to not upload anything to Youtube that was already available on Giantbomb. And I had ads disabled. In the end, though, I felt it best to respect the original owners rights to publish these videos where and how they pleased.

#43 Posted by Cincaid (2959 posts) -

@chadj: Don't worry about it man. If you don't want to keep it up, don't.

#44 Posted by FengShuiGod (1492 posts) -

NO PUT EM UP WHETHER YOU WORRY ABOUT IT OR NOT GODDAMMIT

"Oh no, I'm such a tortured soul because I put up old videos of people playing video games on youtube and I couldn't sleep at night."

Take some ambien and get over it. And put those videos back up.

While you are right. There was gold in it, Matt Rorie super drunk? Locked in a darkened room with Ryan and Jeff also drunk? Do the math.

@chadj

You took so much time to upload them and effort. It just seems a shame. Oh well whats done is done.

#47 Posted by laserbolts (5352 posts) -

So you aren't putting them back up or you are? Please tell me you are.
