Hans Punk Posted March 16, 2016 Share Posted March 16, 2016 Vimeo and YT should delete videos after 2 years if not viewed more than 1000 times (on free account), freeing up space to store higher quality uploads and widening their bandwidth streaming pipe. After 2 years, videos can only be accessed via dedicated server access in libraries...so only visiting a library will ensure you can view that 3 year old cat video that never went viral. Might make people visit libraries again? Hell, I'd even be open to the idea of a Vimeo hipster coffee shop/ library that stored offline content to be surfed and downloaded whilst chomping on an egg panini. The YouTube library cafe would be a little more rough, 13 year old's giving scathing comments behind your back after throwing hot coffee in your face. Libraries could also be a vendor of stock footage relevant to the local area. keeping historically significant video material catalogued and indexed on their own system....you know, like they used to do with news papers. Will it happen?...no. An elitist idea?...yes. Would it create a smaller mountain of crap to be stored online/ allow higher quality streams of new material/ make searching 'offline' content more fun ?...maybe.
