Recommended Posts

Dear xxxx,

We’re writing to let you know that after careful consideration, we’ve arrived at the difficult decision to suspend the Vidme site and apps effective December 15th.
 
You can read more about our rationale for this decision here: https://medium.com/@warrenshaeffer/120b40becafa
 
What this means for you:

New sign-ups and uploads will be disabled effective today.

Existing videos will be playable and exportable from your video manager until December 14th, at which point they will be permanently deleted from the Vidme servers. If you want to backup any of your videos, be sure to sign in and visit your video manager and click the export button (displayed below). After a few minutes, you’ll receive an email with a link to download your exported video.

All paid channel subscripitions will be suspended immediately, and subscriber-only videos will be exclusively accessible to their video owners.

Any outstanding earnings will be paid out upon verification within 60 days.

All Vidme paid subscriptions will cease as of today, and subscribers will no longer be billed. 

Please see our full FAQ for more details, and email us at hello@vid.me with any questions.
 
Thank you for giving Vidme a chance, and we’re very sorry that we won’t be able to continue to support you on the next stage of your creative journey. It has truly been a joy to watch people from all over the world connect, collaborate, and make new friends in this community, and we’re happy to know that many of those relationships will long outlast Vidme itself.
 
Wishing you the best of luck.
 
♥ Team Vidme

Wonder what happened? The real reason I mean.

I don't think they were making enough money, at least that is what their article implies. You think they got strong armed?

December 15?

Right after net neutrality on the 14th.

I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

Good catch

Vacuuming up intelligence and putting a wrench in any "YOU TUBE" rivals. What we need is a  "Cloud" based server without any human intervention, just a library for storage.
