There was a user by the name of GameKing53. He reviewed video games, mostly for Nintendo consoles (Nintendo Wii, Gamecube, Virtual Console etc.) under the name NintenTV reviews. A few years ago he deleted his channel, wanting to move on. All of his videos are now lost, except for one I found on some foreign website. Anybody else ever heard of this guy?

I remember DominicFear had this one video up called "Dom Encounters Swine Flu" which was a comedy sketch, but somewhere between 2015 and this year he privated the video and doesn't seem to plan on making it public anytime soon. Although, some guy made a YouTube Poop outa the ending of the video which you can watch here (hey, I never said it was comedy gold): www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T2v-cfdShs
I basically thought of creating a thread about YouTube videos over the years and present that have gone missing due to deletion, copyright strike, etc. Basically, it isn't your typical lost media.
Anyway, I'd like to start this thread on this video, called Mugman For Nothing QuickTime.
This video was uploaded previously, however was deleted afterwards and this is what remains. Basically, Mugman watches TV with his pet and then he gets sucked in to it. Some users have seen this video in full, however no full footage has been found... yet.
Okay, now it's your turn to find lost YouTube media. Post it in this thread right now and I, along with the rest of LMW, will try to find footage and everything else.
Actually, Jacob Lenard(the creator of mugman) metion in a tweet that he had an channel older than his current one(circa 2007). I can't remember the tweet that well, but I believe he stated that the channel was called lemurboy07 and that no one backed it up.
Make account, wait nearly a year to do anything with it.
A quick PSA about the YouTube on the Wayback Machine: It does not seem that the default crawler can archive videos. However, there have been crawls done which are targeted at YouTube specifically which have been able to get videos. It appears that this was done for a time in 2007 (which is how jawed’s Rolling down a hill was saved), but afterwards these crawls were not done again until 2011, and have been conducted on a fairly regular basis ever since. I have been able to find a few deleted/privated YouTube videos this way, but bear in mind that only YouTube videos which had a decent amount of exposure will be archived. I have not been able to watch some more recent crawls, but I am not sure if this is intentional or not.

blameitonjorge also deleted some of his older videos. I can't remember ALL of them, but one I want to see again was a countdown he made on Mexican urban legends.
Saberspark's "Let's Watch Strawinsky and the Mysterious House" had to be deleted because the creator of the movie claimed copyright. I know he technically uploaded the whole movie with his and his friends' commentaries and that's why it deserved to be deleted... but it's also lost.
Dunno if anyone here is even interested in digital art, but there was a speedpainter that went by the name of deathhound (now Bongo) that did MLP speedpaints. She deleted all of them. Might not be worth rescuing, but just pointing them out.
Hmm... PanPizza also has a lot of lost videos.
Another thing probably not worth rescuing, but 8kdez and SplitPlaythru's channels both got deleted because of YouTube's guidelines. Both uploaded gameplay videos, 8kdez was more casual and SplitPlaythru played the games 100% without commentary. I care especially about Split because he had a whole series of Soulcalibur II videos showcasing the modded "Reloaded" version for Xbox, we could see more in detail more stuff that was modified. SCII Reloaded videos are kinda hard to find.
In the same scene, sort of: dee4doa. He deleted a good chunk of his videos too. He had 2 series of Soulcalibur II mods and only like 4 of them remain. Again, might not be worth rescuing. Just pointing that out.
I can't think of more but I know a lot of YouTube channels and standalone videos that have went down for the past 8 years approx. I don't have an archive or anything, but I've witnessed videos going down.
I remember seeing Cinematic Excrement's 53rd episode on the 1986 anime film Super Mario Bros.: The Great Mission to Rescue Princess Peach! on Sean Moore's Vimeo account sometime ago in 2015 and I remember it being a funny review to watch. The episode also served as a tribute to Justin Carmical (also known as JewWario) a month after he committed suicide in January 2014, which was the main reason why the video got removed/deleted from both his YouTube and Vimeo accounts in April 2018 after Channel Awesome inadvertently revealed that Justin was the sexual predator and assaulter alluded to in the "Not So Awesome" Google Document in their second response to the #ChangeTheChannel movement. This revelation also caused many former Channel Awesome contributors to take down any video collaborations with Justin in it or re-edit them to either remove or replace his cameos in the video.
While I could understand why Sean decided to take the video down in light of the revelations, I believe that he could just easily re-edit the intro and ending of the video to make it about the Mario franchise's first feature length film (not counting the 1993 live-action adaptation, which the anime predated by seven years) instead, since his show has a low budget and that all of his other episodes aside from #53 are available to watch on both of his YouTube and Vimeo accounts.
Despite the frustrations of normal day life we go through, the best thing to do about it is still being happy for our friends and family.
I remember a certain Youtube channel that I remember seeing during the very early days of let's play channels (Back when they were a small community). I forgot the name of it but it was a let's play of the SNES Game "The Great Circus Mystery Starring Micky and Minnie". The only thing I remember about the channel was having the name "Chunky" or "123Chunky". One of the three guys hosting the let's play was heard singing the "Numa Numa Song" from The Muppet Show during the ending of the video game and another guy saying "I love Ginger ale". That channel has since been gone for over a decade but I remember it was one of the first let's play channels that I discovered along with Hellfire Commentaries.
I also remember during the early days of Youtube their used to be a Youtube channel called nicknoway! who made Mario Plush videos similar to Cute Mario Bros by MarioMario8989. It featured Mario and Sonic characters and eventually a female villager from Animal Crossing. Apparently the channel got deleted around 2012. Doesn't help that the channel had very views.
