Oversteam.net, provider of online captioning and subtitling tool that overlays captions on top of YouTube, has been blocked from using YouTube videos.
It is unclear whether this is a blocking of all third party videos, or just Overstream. If anyone has any specifics, please post.
[Edit:3/21 – Looking at whether this may be an api change that Overstream did not account for]
Anyhow, the net result is that hundreds of captioned movie trailers, and thousands of subtitles in many languages, are rendered useless.
Thanks for the warning, YouTube.
Working on getting movie trailers up somewhere else.
