  1. The link in the riffelalp video seems not to work. Getting message “The video is not avaialble because the uploader has closed their YouTube account.

  2. Thanks Peter…
    I checked my blog … then… my YouTube account…. it says my YouTube account has been closed!
    I never closed my YouTube account!!!!!… :-((
    My YouTube account is not suspended , it is closed… so it is not a problem of ‘term of service’… I am the owner of all the videos I uploaded.
    Now … I am trying to recover my account WITH the videos…
    I looked on the web …. and I found many persons who had the same problem… but I did not find any solution to recover the videos!!!
    The only thing I found is a YouTube form to re-open a closed account.
    It takes 24-48h to reopen the account but it is said : “Your account information such as videos and comments will NOT be restored.” !!!
    I already sent the form … hopping that the videos will be recovered too …
    Any ideas????
    Any help is welcome… 🙂
