Well they did so without any warnings or explanations. Ofcourse people are still able to view the forums where every thread asking for a reason why they did that gets the same response.

Unfortunately Veoh will be ending service in your country due to a low concentration of users. Veoh is maintaining markets when we have the highest concentration of viewers.
Now yes i am from a banned country and i wouldnt be posting this stuff if they have given an explanation. But after days of waiting from them to give one im kinda fed up and want to badmouth them on as many places as i can ^^

So discuss.

Well i guess the thing im most pissed off about is them not removing the videos submited by people from the banned countrys.

Instead they said the users should mail them the videos they want removed.

Its stealing.

The users who submited those videos contributed something to the comunity by puting those videos up.

Now when they got banned but their videos not removed. The adds are still with those videos and so VEOH allso continues to make profits from them. Its downright stealing.

How is it stealing? Were you profiting from it? No, they were and always were. Nothing has changed. Contact them and ask them to take down your videos. How is that difficult?

They aren't looking for popularity, they're looking to sharpen their focus on the highest concentration of users of their site. -_-

They're making a marketing decision, which is their right to make if they want to.

It's not business, because users had to agree with stuff in order to sign-up and/or upload movies. In that stuff, there's something about VEOH having absolute power over the site's content and any user-uploaded content.


Besides, I can't find a single country that people care about in that list (apart from Botswana! People there need teh internet and videos!!). No biggy.

That's just not fair, those countries are likely to have contributed to Veoh and yet... I'm using Veoh right now, sorry guys.

Well, if it makes you guys feel any better I can write summaries for the videos you can't watch ^^.
