Default Twitch blocking copyrighted audio



I don't use twitch very much, but I assume there are people here that do. I assume this is worth discussing.

Twitch users now need to be more vigilant about the music they play while making gameplay videos. Starting today, Twitch is now scanning videos for unauthorized third-party audio in-game and ambient music and automatically muting that content.
I assume with justin.tv dieing and this that there will be an official announcement about the google buyout soon.

The practice only applies to pre-recorded video on demand, Twitch says. The company won't be scanning live broadcasts, nor will it automatically take content down.
I don't think it would be any different from youtube videos that as far as I know have no problem with stepmania stuff.

They are only one step away from scanning live streams, and knowing how greedy google was with the dmca scanning/update on youtube, it's only a matter of time metaphorically speaking

It's not much of a concern now, in my opinion.

However, if this gets worst, then users will simply move over to the next best streaming site for games, or make their own.

This reminds me of the whole Vimeo Vs Youtube lawsuit of 2006, hence when I lost my Youtube account (along with my 26k+ subscribers *Grumblegrumble*)

It would be interesting to see how this progresses, since there are now more defined laws in regards to this then 2006, but it's still such a grey area in regards to internet law lol.

How does this affect FFR users, and namely streamers, as FFR has attained permissions for all of the main engine and site based songs, we're free to play those correct? Whereas we could feasibly get ourselves, or maybe even FFR in trouble, by streaming off engine songs on stream on the ffr engine? Can someone clarify, or do the digging to be able to clarify this?

The most amusing part is the fact that the automatic detection system has muted Twitch's own official talk show VODs.

Not to mention numerous other hilarious problems such as Valve's VODs of The International being muted for using music copyrighted by Valve, or Ocarina of Time VODs being muted for having Ocarina of Time music playing in them.

http://www.reddit.com/r/twitch
Twitch is holding an AMA in their subreddit tomorrow which is bound to be a hilarious internet PR disaster.
Since Twitch staff moderate that subreddit, guaranteed the top 500+ posts will all be deleted. Going to be one bombed-out shell of an AMA.


In other news Hitbox has gone down repeatedly today due to the overwhelming increased traffic they've been receiving. WONDER WHY

You know you fucked up when your own program calls you on your shit.

#Goodjobtwitch. (This joke is bad, I'm sorry.)

That said, something like this did need to be done. But holy shit the results are just mind numbingly hilarious. Grab your popcorn guys, tomorrow's PR stunt is gonna be hilarious. I went out and got some cookies because I don't like popcorn, but yeah. Prepare to die of laughter.

I brought extra chairs if anyone's interested. :D

I also heard that there will be implementation of a 2 hour maximum time limit on VODs, which basically kills the speedrunning community.

hitbox for life
