Well I'm pretty sure we all know that amv is just an acronym for anime music video, but recently i've been seeing so odd videos refering to themselves to be amv's. For example a person created a video featuring the lion king , the little mermaid, and that one movie by disney with a horse in it, calling itself an Amv. That is one of the many things that annoy me about online videos.I just want to know how often you see a video that says it's an amv but isn't.

lol, I know them, they even held a contest for it. Their logic is that AMV stands for Animated Music Video >.> This is why I simply prefer the term for it, "FMV" (Fan-made Video)

FMV and AMV are sometimes taken as the same thing, unfortunately :x
