Blog notes

Problems with Youtube...again

For several days I got emails from Youtube claiming that over a dozen videos I uploaded to my channel have been blocked around the world. The majority of claims came from StudioCanal, a big film / tv company in France / Europe. Fortunately, except for THEODORA - SLAVE EMPRESS which was blocked in the US, most of these videos haven't been blocked in the countries that really matter to me, mainly Canada, where I live. Here's a list of countries that can't view those videos anymore :

Algeria, Andorra, Belgium, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Congo - Democratic Republic of, Cote d'Ivoire, Djibouti, France, French Guiana, French Polynesia, Gabon, Guadeloupe, Guinea, Laos, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mali, Martinique, Mauritania, Mayotte, Monaco, Morocco, New Caledonia, Niger, Reunion, Rwanda, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, Senegal, Togo, Tunisia, Vietnam, Wallis and Futuna

As long as they don't block North and South America, Italy, Germany, the UK, Australia, etc, well, I don't have any problems with this. I don't know if they'll block even more videos but I'm just reporting this to make sure that you know why some of my videos are not available anymore.

Disappearing blog "members"

Google owns Blogger and they're currently trying to fix the "members" option for their blogs (see on the left hand side). In doing so, many followers, who aren't with Google, have been "unfollowed" during this clean-up. Sorry about this but it's something that's beyond my control.
