damn slashdot ignoring the formatting unless i put br's

here it is in a readable format:

i was having trouble with youtube flagging all my uploads of original live material as warner and other shitty faceless corporations properties


every time i sent emails to the companies and youtube requesting the exact time of the video and infringing song


after about 1000 emails, 1 got 1 reply, pointing me to an exact time in a video, so i listened to their track and the 22 seconds of my video


my 22 seconds was a bass drum playing on every beat with a white noise filtered with a lowpass filter, no melody, no music (and there was nothing similar in the pointed song besides there was a kick on every beat)


so i decided to test the content ID, i uploaded 15 minutes of ONLY a 909 bass drum playing on every beat (not even a 8th bar 4th beat 1/8th note, juste plain four on the floor


it was flagged by 13 entities (my most flagged video ever) and they ALL confirmed their claim to my 909 playing alone while i was preparing supper


that proves that:

1- the content ID system is crap
2- nobody ever listens to the content when you make a counter claim
3- youtube sides with the "record companies" and shit in their users face

youtube throttle the download at the source, it gives a few second peak (max out your connection) then goes to a steady 60/100 K/s for the rest of the video, just to stay a bit in advance of the playback before you could open 5-6 vids in a new tab, and by the time you watched the 1st one all 5 were loaded

Only through hard work and perseverance can one truly suffer.
