Yahoo! Video Going Bye-Bye, Hello Flickr Video

This is good information for consumers who have posted videos on yahoo. I am reblogging this so that more people can read it and benefit. Thank you Brad , for posting this information .

If you're into video like me and you've posted or hosted videos on Yahoo! Video, you might want to read the following message.  This was sent to me earlier since I have content on their site, I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up.  If you know anyone esle who might have videos up on Yahoo, it's not too late to get them this message.  They have until 3/14/2011.  If folks don't know about this, they'll lose their videos.

"Dear Yahoo! Video user,

After careful consideration, we will be removing all general user-generated content upload capability and user-uploaded video from Yahoo! Video. As a result, your videos, user profiles, ratings, favorites, and playlists will no longer be available after March 14, 2011. User video content from Yahoo! Video that remains embedded on third party sites will no longer be playable after March 14, 2011.

Available on your profile page is a software utility that will allow you to download the videos you have uploaded to Yahoo! Video to your computer through March 14, 2011. You can find your profile by clicking on the 'My Video' tab or going to

Once you download your videos, you may choose to upload them to another site such as Flickr, which now allows video uploads. You can find out more here:

Thanks for your understanding and thanks for being a part of Yahoo! Video.
If you have any questions about this change, please visit our FAQ section, or contact Customer Care."

The Yahoo! Video Team

Getting the word out and helping others is what the Internet, Blogging, and Social Media is all about.  I'd feel guilty if I didn't post this on my AR Blog and especially if some of you lost your videos.  So you can either go on over to yahoo video right now, save your stuff, or you can go on about your day. 

Thanks for stopping by and reading.  Happy Holidays~

When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.

Good to know if I had video over there. I'm sure many AR friends will be working on that.
