An Update On The Video Commentaries

A couple quick notes:

So earlier this month - or was it the end of last month? - I made a post in regards to a Youtube technicality that prompted me to deleted all the old video commentaries from the DTM Rambles channel. The deal was that a change in the algorithm would affect most unlisted videos and that I either had to let them be public, fill out a form to keep them unlisted, or simply re-up them again. Naturally, I have gone with the third option since the commentaries are old and I'd rather not have them be commented on by really dumb people who believe that stuff is relevant today.

So here's the deal. I'm going to attempt to upload a couple old commentaries onto the DTM Archives channel, the secondary Youtube channel I've got laying around that spent its days as an archive of Mega Man Maker videos. The original intent of the channel was for all the odds and ends that didn't fit the main channel and since video commentaries are no longer the in-thing around these parts - or at least not as much as they used to be - I suppose the whole bunch of them would now be considered oddball.

Anyway, I'm going to try on there first and if things go smoothly, it shouldn't be a problem to get those videos up and about. But if it turns out to be problematic, then it'll be off to the Dailymotion mines.

As for what version of the commentaries will be up... it depends.

For the most part, a good majority of these commentaries are being re-rendered from the original Vegas source material, with only the intro and outro bits being swapped and maybe a couple text additions for title cards and such. However, some of these will be straight re-ups of the old files since the original Vegas sources were wiped during a hard drive crash ages ago. 

We'll give this a shot and I'll let you know where things stand when I have news to offer.
