Wayback Machine Issues With (YouTube)...

Wayback Machine Issues With (YouTube)...

Last year we made a blog post about the ability to search and play videos that have been removed from YouTube, via the Internet Archive (Wayback Machine).

It has come to our attention recently that there are seemingly some issues happening on the infrastructure/back-end of their services (see image above).

Here are some supporting external links:

We have re-coded our method of finding videos that are still in tact and playable and adding them to Petey Vid as we validate them.

The downside is that the percentage of actual playable videos is FAR less than previously experienced.  We hope the Wayback Machine can resolve these issues so that we can continue this service.

If there is any information anyone can provide us to speed resolution of this matter, feel free to contact us HERE
