    YouTube: We're sorry, this video is no longer available.

    This is really getting annoying. If it is not available why list it in search results?

    The movie/music industry is also getting out of hand. Free advertising is NOT a bad thing, I know in the past I have gone out many times to buy stuff I looked or listened to on the internet. Hopefully they kill their own business model with their actions.

    This is what I was looking for, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ii8m...eature=related
    Although a new video it is a very old recording of the song.

    EDIT: I just clicked on my own link and now it works? When I click on it from the search results I get the stupid message? Using Opera 9.51 btw.

    I can think of some technical reasons for it.

    But I have listened to entire albums on youtube (Candlemass's first two albums) and just bought both of them (even though I have the youtube files locally stored).

    After some reading this seems like a technical issue, but I still don't know how to fix it.

    This is also driving me bonkers. I've come to the belif that the videos are in fact available, but something is stopping it from working.
    I hope some clever person can work out why.

    Perhaps they lock the videos instead of deleting them, in case there is new decisions made.

    You know that Google and Youtube have been forced to had over all of the IP addresses and Youtube videos to Viacom, right? Then Viacom, as far as the ruling goes it says nothing of what will happen after this case is over. Then, one would imagine, they will go after you and me individually for having clicked and watched a movie clip, even for a few seconds, with copyrighted material. The data that will be given over will be around 12 terabytes of data, including user accounts, names, etc. Google said that they will ask to "anonymise the logs" first, but who knows. I know one thing, I'm not going to any site that has youtube linked to it. I don't want to be caught in the crossfire. I prefer to keep my information private, even if that means not seeing really funny home movies posted on youtube.

    I save my on my harrdrive and I don't buy the music, why would I?

    To support the artist??

    Banshee can play videos, has a video library function, has playlists, and an equalizer, and works with all gstreamer codec plugins, so it can also play flash movies from youtube

    just stop buying anything from them and they will go away (it might take a few years).

    there is plenty of good stuff to listen to and buy that wont support them. magnatune is a good place to start.
