    It's a kind of obscure video format that Google uses.

    .flv are Flash Video files. You can actually use a flv player on your website or desktop to play them. You can also use the nice freeware SUPER to convert flv/mp4s to many other formats.

    of course, you totally failed to back up that garbage with any factual data :rolleyes:

    since you claim that everything you are doing is o.k., you won't mind if i report your blog to adsense support?

    I'll reply asking if the videos on their sites aren't copyrighted.

    are you calling me a noob? or talking to danimal?
    trust me man, the idea you described here is great, and I already did a video blog, I'm just curious about this and would like to check with Google if it is legal or not rather than reading your fight here with danimal. I did a search on Google and there are thousands such video blogs so it should be safe to use the idea. but.. better safe than sorry.


    EDIT: I also sent mail to google to make sure you're right and stop this fight, and maybe people will come with more ideas and improvements to your idea.

    that's very smart... thetafferboy83 doesn't care about your adsense account, he's just out here trying to drive traffic to his blog.

    notice how he's scared to tell google about his blog? he knows that he might lose his account :rolleyes:

    Notice how you're wrong. Happy now? How am I "trying to drive traffic to my blog"? I never even posted a link to it. So you're wrong on both accounts. Is that enough to make you go away now? :)

    sure
    Just take in consideration that I will not modify the videos (I'll skip that part of the tutorial) I'm just linking to them (which is perfectly legal)

    Dude, why are you worrying about other peoples sites, how does that help you in any way? Just a waste of time imo

    It's been said over and over around the board and the net

    As long as you don't host copyrighted material on your site and server its fine

    If you use video sites like youtube or google video, it is assumed by google that copyrighted material is already deleted.

    Therefore, if it's hosted on youtube, its fine because if it wasnt fine the video would have already been taken down by google
