So it seems like the vast majority of the We Be Drummin' streams from 2020 have finally been caught by the copyright cops, and are no longer available on either the GB website or on YouTube. Any chance of these coming back, and if not, dont suppose anyone managed to back them up...?

I opened a random one and was able to watch it fine on the site's player.

If I understand it correctly, the video on the GB page is just a Youtube embed, meaning it's playing the file that was uploaded to Youtube. The files you download off the GB page are actually hosted on GB and thus free of copyright bots.

I just tested four or five of them, including older ones. It does appear they got claimed on Youtube but all of them worked fine on the site's player for me.

Correct. You just have to make sure the source is set to anything other than "Youtube" and it should work just fine. If it automatically shows the Youtube version when you hit play when you open the video, there should be a button in the middle of the bottom of the player with 3 dots. Click that button, select "back to GB player" then from there select any option that isn't the Youtube one and it'll work.

Ah! Okay, I didn't realize that I had to switch to the GB Player on the site. Yeah, the YouTube embeds aren't working, but as soon as I switch player, they seem to be fine.

Thanks all!

If anyone wants these they should probably download them ASAP.

I'm kinda surprised it took so long, but thankfully we do still have the archives hosted here.

Yep, we have been running into a lot of copyright claims on YT recently. I can't guarantee that I'll have the wherewithal to fight every single one of them, but the videos should still work on the GB site player, at least.
