"Youtube" videos - some of them - can be exciting and worthwhile. If you find a good "youtube" video that contains music by a little-known composer, but does not clearly fit under any of the existing sections, this board will henceforth be the right place to link to it. Very Important: please use only short youtube links.

The suggestion of the 'short form' of the YouTube link seems very worthwhile, and will improve the visible appeal of the page Smiley

Because of a limitation in the forum software, I would request all members to use the short forms of "youtube" links. They are easy to obtain. If you are watching the video, you will see below it a little tab labelled "Share":


Click on that, and a blue box will appear, containing the desired short link:


Simply hit control-C to copy that short link. You can then come back to the forum and paste that short link into your messages, and all will be well.

I have downloaded a number of compositions from You Tube using Free You Tube Downloader.

Obviously I could upload any of these to Mediafire and provide a link (as I have just done with one such-the Geoffrey Bush Symphony No.1).

It may be however that this is not appropriate/approved behaviour and that instead the link to the You Tube file should be provided only Huh (If so I shall delete the Bush file at once).

I would appreciate guidance.....and if that guidance has already been provided I apologise in advance for asking for it again.

Personally I would have no objection. All forms of commercialism - buying and selling - seem wrong to me; not activities to be supported. So please feel free to do whatever you yourself feel right. The more (high quality) links you post the merrier! And there are many alternatives to Mediafire; ulozto.net is just one example.






(Sorry for very very late response.)

Delightful youtube channel with lots of romantic and late romantic light overtures, intermezzos, etc. if you are into that.

That's all very well, but whatever gets uploaded to YouTube or wherever else cannot be so without such commercialism, since it all costs money. Furthermore, far too many people upload copyright material without first requesting the permission even of the artists, record companies, broadcasters &c., let alone the copyright owners, which is downright rude as well as disadvantageous to all those who have an interest in such material.

I've had to use YouTube's takedown facility more times than I can remember. I detest having to do it because in one sense it flies in the face of my rôle to promote certaion music, but there's a simple answer and that is to try to encourage such uploaders only to upload extracts under the equivalent to the "fair use" policy applicable to literary writings; this not only avoids copyright infringements but also can encourage those who listen to those extracts to buy the recordings (in the case of those which are commercially available).
