I'm going to reach and say you made this, not only as a reminder, but because you're about to announce something! To the Speculation-mobile (again)!

Without going into specific players or broadcasters, is there an area that is having issues we need to pay more attention to or be careful when doing?

Added a link for clarification. There is a bit of confusion and rage right now about copyright claims and such with content creators and youtube. We wanted to remind people where they can find our policies. This helps them should YouTube shut down a video. Sending youtube the link to our policy allows them to prove they are allowed by us to create the video.

Exactly as I thought/feared.

 

Many a good player I watched was hit with this. I didn't know if it was the 500-pound gorilla fighting the elephant in the room though (couldn't resist matching up the two there,) and was wary in discussing it directly.

 

Thanks for doing this JoeW and Klei, and I hope many more players will unfailingly air this and all other Klei games (within the rules) without fear now.

it appears most of the issues are arising due to the automated algorithms google/youtube uses to flag these vids, alot of them using content that was distributed by the devs for reviewers and let's players, as well as alot of issues with background music being flagged

 

hopefully with the outcry about this on the internet reaching typhoon-stage rage levels over this, they can adjust the algorithms again and fix it all, but i fear the background music issue will be a harder one to fix, since the RIAA are total a$$holes.   Its not the artists/musicians that are complaining, its the music publishers that are looking for more ways to make money...

 

I hope the "suits" somehow realize that people making let's plays are FREE ADVERTISING!!!!! yeesh

YouTube is getting many hits lately...

As you can see by the reason of this thread. It's not the game devs that are flagging videos, it's Youtube itself. LPs as free advertising is already understood by devs. Hence why the Twitch.tv apps on the new consoles.

you just restated what i said but ok.

 

the "devs" and the "suits" are two totally different groups.  game devs value the gaming community. game publishers want to make their shareholders happy.

 

of course im generalizing, alot of smaller pusblishers try to balance both sides.  Ubisoft, EA, etc etc? not so much.

Quick question will we get any copyright strikes for having music enabled because your music in the dont starve games (together and alone) are amazing and I'd love to share that.

You're more than welcome to use the Don't Starve music when making let's plays, reviews, previews and other Don't Starve-related video productions as long as you stick close to our Player Creation Guidelines.

Posting soundtrack songs by themselves or with different games/content on YouTube however unfortunately falls outside of the guidelines; and regrettably we cannot provide permission to publish or monetize the soundtrack in that manner.

You have to pay to even be able to play them, hahah! But after that, sure, record it, stream it, share your content with us!

edit: I probably seem dumb right now....so I don't have to pay to record or no? I'm sorry....

I misinterpreted what you said, sorry. You don't have to pay to stream or record the games, you just have to pay for the games themselves, and when streaming/uploading videos of something in Beta/Early Access just make sure to notify your audience it's in that state.
