Site Announcement: Mass YouTube Linking Embed Failure

Small announcement that we have recently found a not-small number of video embeds and links going kaput, because apparently one of the uploaders whose video we frequently use "has closed their YouTube account".

We are replacing the links as we discover them. If you find any broken links or embed failures we haven't got to, especially those on a game's song list or one of our feature articles (Song of the Week, Series Showcase or Lyrics Feature), please reach us via all the normal routes (Twitter DMs, chatbox on the left, post comments, etc.).

PS. re: the song list links. With nearly 200 songs for each latest console releases and 500+ on the current arcade build, their upkeep are getting harder and harder for us. We actually have, at one point, been thinking of some way to more easily keep track of these massive lists of songs and video links, possibly involving some database magic and stuff, but that also did not go anywhere significant or practical enough. If you have this kind of expertise and want to collaborate, please also reach us.

  1. I don't think this was from that youtube account, but one of the links that doesn't work is the "Sonic 4 Episode I Medley" from Taiko +. I wanted to see that one since it has unique dancers, but it didn't work when I clicked the link a couple months ago. I couldn't find any video of it with multiple google searches, so I'm not sure if a video of this exists anymore. I would buy the song and record it if I could, but I don't think you can buy older stuff after a certain point. If anyone does have this song and can record it, I would greatly appreciate it.
