YouTube are also completely bonkers!
I uploaded a video to the site of a video that had been previously on YouTube and which is still on YouTube in several different versions and shortly after it had uploaded they told me it was blocked worldwide because of a claim by Viacom :roll:
Yet as I said there are several videos of the same thing uploaded by ordinary users and their video is not blocked Worldwide.
Here is one of the video's which should therefore be blocked worldwide:


Since when do Viacom own the BBC?

Does anybody outside AU/CA/UK/US have noticed that after Warner now Sony has stepped up geo-restricting a notch?
Videos that were perfectly available a week ago are now muted and/or no longer available... :o :evil:

Do you not use AdBlock? Or were you accessing via your phone? If phone, I've noticed an increase in ads but nothing too off putting.

No it's on my Mac and I do have ad-block. It's really frustrating when videos keep stopping to play an advert in the middle.

That's ok if it gives you an idea that it's the kind of video you want to watch, but not when it gives everything away in the preview :lol:
