I really hope chemplayer doesn't disappear from youtube, that would be a real shame. I have backed up the entire channel and a number of other chemistry etc related channels which are at risk. If anyone else wants to do the same then youtube-dl works very well.

Good idea, BitChute is peer to peer and places little emphasis on political correctness. It would be nice if you could transfer all your videos over to BitChute.

btw why not try mastodon? it's also a possible alternative platform. Its also open source! You can also upload vids there.
A lot of my FB friends has opened acs and some are also considering.

For a minute this thread had me going then I checked and found that the date was from 2016. Close call, I though Chem Player was leaving (again)

To clarify; we took a break in mid-2006 as we ended up becoming split up geographically. One of us then continued with sporadic videos during 2017, but now back on a video break again (planning some more later in the year but still no plans for a full 'series 2' until time allows, as it's all systems-go on other projects at the moment).

Issue at the moment is that we're on 2 strikes (with 3 videos seemingly taken down) so at a guess it will only take one more before YT can pull the plug on the channel. With the issues that other channels have had (e.g. E&F) and from what we understand about what YT are up to, it feels likely that they'll continue this culling of material on the platform so it's probably a matter of time. We hope not but let's see. As and when time allows it there will be a steady stream of videos transferred over to BitChute as a backup. Stay tuned...

I have backed up most of CP's videos in an archive. I will link to it when I can.

Very sad.


I'm sorry to see this happen to ChemPlayer. I couldn't believe it was real until I saw it. Honestly YouTube is killing their own platform.

I keep seeing this over and over and I'm getting really sick of their crap. Logan Paul get's a slap on the wrist for literally using human remains in his video as a prop, and ChemPlayer get's taken down for doing legitimate science... Sickening.

Nobody should have to worry that their hard work will be stripped from the site for such inane reasons.

Really sad and angry to see chem player chemistry videos taken down. If anyone has them downloaded I would love to get my hands on them.

Also is there another platform for sharing videos other than YouTube?

Velzee has a zipfile with most of them ready for download. Look for his thread in whimsy.

Am sad. I can't view the whimsy board. It's probably because I have so few posts on this site. I wanted to download the videos. Does anyone have an alternative link?

Oh okay, is there a standard board or specific person I should ask to do so? (Still kind of new here, sorry for the probably obvious questions)

In this case you could just u2u velzee and ask for the link.

Apologies for dominating this thread. the whole situation pisses me off.

Chemplayer goes, but this trash remains.

And of course I am divided on whether to report it because (a) the drug synth information is already out there and (b) it will merely reinforce the YT policy of shutting down chem.

YouTube is what it is.

If you do not like how they hand out some $ for videos that you upload, just claim your $ back ;)

It's free $ if you play by their ever-changing rules.

If not, they will immediately refund the $ you paid them, in full.

(the missing part is all your time and effort, but they are Sales guys)

I think you deliberately miss the point, aga.
No one is complaining about youtube's business model. It is rather generous as far as these things go. Part of their model is to host large numbers of videos for free, at a loss to them, for users who choose not to monetise. They do that at their discretion and can cease whenever they choose.

The thing that burns is that yt's algorithims and policies disproportionally target chemistry. Ostensibly this is to keep the public safe from drugs and explosives. However, in practice, the amateur chemistry is censured and the drug kooks remain. And as for protecting the public and community guidelines, the situation is laughable. There is bucketloads of dangerous stupidity plastered all over yt. I don't know how often I have seen someone gruesomely maimed or killed in the middle of a dashcam or failarmy compilation.

The setup is inequitible. Yt does not recognise or acknowledge a valuable knowledge or education resource (despite their continual promotion of education). And the appeals process is so limited as to be nearly worthless.

The way to make yt work is to monetise the hell out of it, form a team to produce videos on a quick turnaround, and fill everything with flashy lowest-denomenator clickbait. (Go Grant Thompson!) But none of that compensates for the loss of a repository of awesome experimentation and the positive effect that had on a significant sector of science enthusiasts.

This pisses me off.
To chemplayer, I would like to offer my incredible thanks. Your videos, as incredibly entertaining as they have been, have given me great knowledge. I enjoyed each and every one of them, and my only regret in this regard is that I didn't get to see them all.
To everyone who backed their videos up, I would just like to say thanks. (Especially Velzee!) I will be getting a copy of them once the traffic dies down.
I hope that the same doesn't happen to other channels, but I know it soon will.
Best of luck to all future and current science content creators... you'll need it in this upcoming era of anti-science that the world seems to be moving towards.
