What a shame, though not a surprise. Summoning Salt is absolutely a gem of a channel. Would *love* to help spread their content over at tilvids.com YouTube has become too big to reasonably exist.

This is why creators should just move over to @peertube instances. At this point, Google is just a middle-man. Get with a few other similar creators, set up an instance, collect donations, and make more than you likely would on YouTube anyway.

Reuters has a great piece about misinformation on alternative video platforms. They should have taken a look at @peertube as well though. Some of us are trying hard to build better ecosystems out here for video creators! .com

YouTube sounds worse every day. If all you want to do is watch videos from creators without being hassled, do yourself and the world a favor and investigate alternatives.

TILVIDS UPDATE

We appear to be back online. I'll be looking forward to reading what happened to our host. Anyway, sorry for the interruption, thanks for your patience, and go watch a video! Here's a great one from the archive!

UPDATE:

Host is still down. Sounds like a pretty major network outage. Next update should come around 8pm EST.

UPDATE ON TILVIDS DOWNTIME

Indeed, looks like our host is having some datacenter problems. FWIW, this is why I'm working on a redundancy server at the moment (along with to improve performance). Have made some progress here, just have to figure out why our second instance isn't honoring the redundancy settings I've applied. Should make for a good blog post at some point. :)

I'll post here when our host is back online. Sorry again for the interruption.

PSA: It looks like our host is doing some unexpected maintenance on their data-center right now. TILvids might be offline for a bit because of this. Sorry for the interruption!
