    EDIT
    Thats gaming movies that are to be deleted, eg fraps movies, Machinima films are allowed and will be hosted


    gaming movies = deleted
    Machinima films = vimeo will host ok

      That really sucks.

      Not only are they the highest quality, their stuff imbeds so well into other pages.

      Sounds a bit like splitting hairs if you ask me.

      Gaming videos were probably eating up disk space by leaps and bounds. Still sucks.

        That is just to bad, think about all the people who have uploaded videos there.
        Look under your chair!

          At least all those people still have the opportunity to get their videos back in ample time before deletion.

          As I posted on their site, what do you expect for free? Until you pay for a service, you don't really have any tangible rights over the policies and expectations of that service.

          I'd be more than willing to pay for a service as good as vimeo. I really liked the video services. Look at TG. I like its services so much I pay to make sure I have use of them.

            Yea, but even though you pay, you still have no tangible right over the policies and stuff here at TG. You can always stop paying, but that doesn't really do much. The only way to have that sort of input is start something yourself or became a major contributor.

                As long as machinima films are still allowed then I'm happy. Vimeo will soon be starting a premium service and it's possible that if you have it then you can put your gameplay vids up again.
