UPDATE: I've been accepted into Dailymotion's official program. My videos will be distributed through them from here on out.
I’ve been purged from Blip.tv.
Now this doesn’t necessarily mean the end of The Necro Critic. However, this does mean that I can’t upload anything until I find a new video host that will let me monetize my videos. While I do have a YouTube account that I have most of my videos on, their particular approach to copyright and fair use is a constant pain to deal with. Considering the fact that I’ve spent the past two months trying to dispute alleged copyright claims from the Spanish distributor of one of the movies I’ve reviewed, YouTube isn’t exactly a viable option in that department.
Now, I know some of you are wondering why I’m putting such a high priority on monetizing my videos. It’s true that when I started out that this was just a hobby that I was doing for fun. However, I’ve recently been struggling to keep up with the hardware required to make my videos. On top of that, a few months ago the bandwidth for my website had exceeded the amount that Webs.com allows for a free account. So thanks to webhosting fees, equipment costs, software updates/upgrades, and various personal finances, I have reached the point where producing videos for free just isn’t an option anymore.
So until I can figure out a solution to my video-hosting dilemma, my videos will remain unavailable from this site. Until then there’s always my Youtube and Facebook page. If you guys have any ideas or suggestions as to how I can handle this situation, feel free to comment to let me know.
PS: I'm still working on the my next review. Expect to see it shortly after I find a new video host.
