AMV Hosting Concern vie threw Crunchyroll.



This basically means on 8th of January 2009, Crunchyroll wont be accpeting any Amv's due to Copyright.

TV Tokyo to Stream Naruto via Crunchyroll Worldwide!

The Japanese broadcaster TV Tokyo has announced that it will begin streaming English-subtitled episodes of the Naruto anime series, about one hour after their Japanese broadcast, to paid monthly subscribers worldwide on the Crunchyroll video service on January 8, 2009.

More Information about this issue can be found by the link shown below:

So, it would be better for our group to host our videos via Youtube.
I would say it will benifite us better due to Crunchyroll's WebPlayer that Resize our Aspect Ratio, Massive Quality Rip and that some part of the world can't view videos (Such as Japan)
Or we could also do a downloadable link to our Amv's which in my opinion would be the best option available.

So just give your opinion on what you feel about this and give optional site we could use to host our Amv's;
>AnimeMusicVideos.org
>Youtube.com

YESSSS!!!!!!!!!!! Finally!!! I was waiting for the day when we don't have to judge amvs in the quality that they appear on cruchyroll. This gives us a valid reason to not use crunchyroll quality for judging amvs. Personally, (if you couldn't tell already ) I am happy about this.

Thanks for the information
I had a feeling this was coming I think it's better because of the crappy video quality on CR anyway. Starting in January we will definitely use alternative means of showing our videos !!

lol, l was playing on stopping uploading to CR anyway.

I want my videos to show quality not some half assed resize junk that CR gives you. I like this change but for people watching anime this will be very different and hit them hard.
