    EDIT: View what the video actually was here.

    As you can see, Nintendo has started taking down videos of Let's Plays. Not just monetized ones, but even non-monetized. Because of this takedown, I am unable to post videos longer than 15 minutes (which is just about every speedrun, my channel's main content).

    That really sucks.
    I don't understand the mentality behind DOING this.
    People are playing their games and pretty much showing people reasons to BUY the game if the lets play is good.
    Sad really, and isn't this the same reason why Sakurai is opting not to put cutscenes in the new smash bros?

    So you can't post videos over 15 minutes?

    Still pretty shitty but you can chunk videos into multiple parts at least.

    Good job, Nintendo. Please carry on taking down videos that are entirely free advertisement and spiting your audience. :)
    What's the point if they'll be taken down anyways? ;)

    Uh... with the whole YouTube fiasco going on, you can't blame Nintendo.

    Even people who work with Nintendo like BlackNerd got his videos claimed and taken down, when Nintendo asked him to make them. YouTube said they were claimed by Nintendo, but they weren't.

    Well he said videos over 15 minutes will be taken down, so you could take like a 20 min video and just make it into two 10 minute videos and avoid the takedown. Or maybe I misinterpreted.

    Almost positive this is YouTube and not Nintendo. Ubisoft, Capcom, EA and Nintendo have all had their content flagged and identified in other peoples videos and have been cited as claiming the video, when in reality it was YouTube's system that took down the video. They likely don't even know about your video being taken down.

    I smell conspiracy theory, but yeah, the system is automated for the most part.

    Recently articles have been popping up revealing some really sad information. In most cases it isn't video game companies, movie companies or television companies having youtube take down people's reviews or walkthroughs.

    It is actually videos getting flagged for music right violations, even for something as simple as 5 seconds of a song playing in low decimals in the background. In most of these cases too, it's youtube policies fault. Even music that's gone copyright free as well as music that's never had copyrights attached to it, triggers youtubes overbearing big brother mode.

    You misinterpreted. What he was saying is that one of his videos has been taken down, which reduces the standing of his Youtube account to such that he can not longer upload videos longer than 15 minutes. The length has nothing to do with the takedown, it's just a result of having one of your videos taken down.

    This is Youtube not Nintendo... Chances are they picked up on too many problems with your video due to copyright problems and took it down.

    if that is truth is like Youtube is wanting to be hated taking down everything that can be claimed, and blaming other companies for that.
    but they are popular and people still will use it until someone release a better or equal service. Dailymotion suck my left ball and Vimeo suck my right ball and NicoNico videos are full of flying comments.

    I remember that Roosterteeth/Achievement Hunter was saying they have to be EXTREMELY careful with the things try include with their videos for fear of having them removed.
    They could barely inside the games own soundtrack in a Tony Hawk lets play for fear of being taken down.
    It really sucks.
