So I wrote to them to ask if it would be possible to get copies of the content they had made unavailable:After many years of being an open platform, we’re now taking our mission to bring the best original web series to our audience more seriously.
Their reply was unequivocal:I understand that many Python-related videos are no longer available on your service.This is to ask whether you can make the original media available to us for re-hosting, since there is definite demand for some of the video content you have removed.
So if you were thinking about using Blip's services, you might want to think again. They have just deleted all this stuff, as far as I can see without giving much notice to the people who posted it in the first place. They have made no friends in the Python world as a result, and I can only imagine who else they have pissed off with their apparently heavy-handed actions.Unfortunately this content is no longer available on Blip and we are not able to provide it to you. The original content owner may re-upload their source files to another hosting provider as an alternative.
