I wanted to announce here, on my favourite bush craft site/forum, that my video's are no longer available on my YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/greenpete).
I have had enough of google and their arrogance and lack of respect. They have bullied the Youtube community into creating google accounts in order to access an account with Youtube (now owned by google) that they have had for years.
I may (or may not) find another place to host the video's, time will tell.
But any embedding will no longer work, I'm sorry.
You can still download the DVD version, for free via bittorrent here (https://www.greenpete.org/tracker/torrents-details.php?id=6).

Would Veoh be of any use? LINKY (http://www.veoh.com/)

Thanks for letting us know Pete! I'll have to go remove the embed videos on the site! :(

I would recommend http://vimeo.com/ A lot less cluttered with ads, very customisable, we used to use them for hosting all of our videos for the site.

Thank you for still providing a wonderful DVD/torrent.

I feel I really should put the video's back up somewhere, and Vimeo has long been on my mind, so maybe there.
Either way, I hope to have them back online in the next week or so.

My videos are back online!
You can now see the same video split into four bite sized chunks on Vimeo. You can also embed as with Youtube.

If I'm ever meeting up with a group or if you're near Exmouth and want the DVD, please drop me a PM and I'll burn you a copy (make a DVD disc for you). It's the least I can do to pass on this enjoyable and informative video.

Pete, I've thanked you before but I'll do it again; your video is inspirational - a joy to watch. Thank you so much.

Yay! :happy-clapping: Thanks Pete!

Any particular reason it's in four parts? Vimeo don't impose time restrictions on the video do they?

So glad it's back online for all to see. :D

Back up & running @ http://www.naturalbushcraft.co.uk/resources/greenpetes-knife-making-video-stream-or-download-the-dvd.html

Looks lovely at a res of 1280 x 1024 but probably overlapping for smaller resolutions.

I wondered the same thing myself after I had uploaded it!
Basically it's because Youtube forced me to do it that way, I just uploaded to Vimeo the same way.
One reason I haven't rushed to upload the full version is two fold; 1) I think 'bite sized' chunks are better and 2) The DVD (http://www.greenpete.co.uk/knife-making/knife-making-video/) is out there for people wanting the full version and I created the DVD chapters in a way that allowed 'referring' to the tutorial, hopefully making it easier to use. I feel this works in a similar way with the four part version I have just uploaded.
I considered (am still considering I guess) uploading the full version to Vimeo, what do people think, should I put the whole video up in one part?
