My Rant: Video Archives Missing!
If you happened to look back at my video archives on my blog, you will notice most of my videos are missing. Here's the reason why:
I've been video blogging since 2005. Most of my videos were hosted on Viddyou which later was sold to Motionbox. A while later I got an email alerting me that Snapfish bought Motionbox and that I needed to transfer my videos to them by August 10, 2010. I didn't have enough time to transfer my videos because I was away on vacation. When I returned from vacation I discovered all my videos were deleted. We're talking about several years worth of videos I put on my blog that is completely gone! Now when anyone goes back to my archives there are no videos. Only empty black boxes (see above image).
In order to correct this, I need to search for hundreds of videos on my computer's hard drive to upload once again to another host. Then I will replace what was removed from Snapfish, which was four years of work I put on my blog. I am not a happy camper! One thing for sure, I will not use Snapfish services anytime soon!
If there is any particular video you want to see from my archives, let me know. I will put it at the top of my list.
