Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

For those who don't know or do know, liveleak was a video streaming platform that had a reputation for hosting uncensored world event videos has suddenly shut down on May 6th, According to the podcast from the owner below, he is trying to convey that it was his decision, two things, one, in the live chat one or two people asked if "UK government was after him" he did not refer or answer these comments, secondly, time 20.35 - 21.18  he said the following

"the worlds changing, the internet is changing, people are changing, everything is different now, everything moves on, I don't like it, i liked it much better when it was the wild west, believe me, if it was left up to me, and it was only my say, liveleak would have been shutdown by governments in 2008, but the world moves on right".  

 

Make of that what you will,

In its place the owner has set up a new site, which is going to be more restrictive than liveleak, if you look at the t&C,

liveleaks had a role to play as youtube became a place to post cat videos and pop music and other assorted sheeeite

 

what does haydens new site do? Is it another video sharing platform?

 

Will they still be the go-to place for clips you hear about but know will not be on youtube?

I just had a quick look, looks like a place where you find those 'silly' little clips that people end up sharing and go 'viral', and have no value other than to 'entertain' someone for a few seconds.
