I've recently been hearing stories about YouTube not being kind with its users. A personal example includes a family member who uploaded videos for the past year, almost daily of his daughter (my niece) playing @ the park and birthday parties, etc. However one day the videos disappeared and YouTube permanently closed the account, along with all the videos of my niece growing up. Admittedly he should've kept a backup in an external or something, but YouTube just closed the account out of the blue. My uncle assumes because a video or two may have contained copyrighted material. On YouTube I also saw a video explaining something about account not used in 2 years are automatically deleted (acceptable though) and vids with less than a thousand views will get deleted after a certain amount of time. The truth is I'm asking this question because I myself am looking to upload videos and want the security of knowing they aren't going anywhere and before I create a YouTube account, I figured i'd ask the community as to their thoughts about this. I guess my search continues to find a site to upload... ...Perhaps Vimeo?
