For the last six years or so I have been involved with trying to obtain new and archive recordings of players World Wide as part of the Concertina Internationals .Some of the famous old artists sadly did not record their playing . Luckily a few old 78s or cassette recordings have been donated.It is only when an singer, or musician is dead that it is regretted that so little ,if any, of their music is available.
YouTube has provided a platform for singers and players to perform in front of us Worldwide, some great recordings and performances are available, at any time I assume that these recordings could be deleted and then they are gone forever.
Do Youtube have any facility for saving old recordings/videos of artists for viewing in say fifty years time?

My only suggestion is that you yourself download said uploads from YoutTube and then burn them onto a CD and donate this to a collection. And also upload them to another server / service too. I think that Google who own YouTube could easily switch the whole service off as they did recently with Google Video. 50 years ahead - who knows what YouTube will be like. I bet Google haven't even thought ahead to 5 years!! Technology is changing so fast. Bearing in mind all the cr*p clips on YouTube I would expect some pruning at some stage, and your clips may also get deleted. Fotopic and Snappy Snaps has just gone into administration - there are - or were - literally millions of photos uploaded there that have now ALL been deleted. I expect that many of these were of archival interest. And remember Geocities and AOL Homepages - they all got wiped too when the services suddenly closed down.

Sorry - it is Snappy Designs and Fotopic that's gone - not Snappy Snaps which I assume is a separate company.

Dear Google Video User,

Later this month, hosted video content on Google Video will no longer be available for playback. Google Video stopped taking uploads in May 2009 and now we're removing the remaining hosted content. We've always maintained that the strength of Google Video is its ability to let people search videos from across the web, regardless of where those videos are hosted. And this move will enable us to focus on developing these technologies further to the benefit of searchers worldwide.

On April 29, 2011, videos that have been uploaded to Google Video will no longer be available for playback. We've added a Download button to the video status page, so you can download any video content you want to save. If you don't want to download your content, you don't need to do anything. (The Download feature will be disabled after May 13, 2011.)

We encourage you to move to your content to YouTube if you haven't done so already. YouTube offers many video hosting options including the ability to share your videos privately or in an unlisted manner.

===

BUT YOUTUBE ONLY ALLOWS 10 MINUTES OR LESS. GOOGLE VIDEO ALLOWED AN HOUR OR MORE.

What's the new limit? But judging by the cr*p clips that idiot uploaders post there Google are going to have a problem hosting all the junk if they really have relaxed the maximum time limit. Maybe they should have left Google Video for the real films and YouTube for the rubbish.

The extension of the time limit applies to selected uploaders. If you upload anything reasonably sensible you seem to qualify: my upload page says:
"Congratulations! Your account is now enabled for uploads longer than 15 minutes." (and I didn't even have to ask)
It also says that the file size limit is 2Gb, which is enough for about half an hour of reasonable quality if my quick scrap-paper calculation is correct.
