NOOOOOOO! (Do Not Want) - BACKUP YOUR VIDS

WHAT TO BACKUP

  • Large size MP4 (MUST)
  • Project files, source (OPTIONAL, BUT RECOMMENDED)

WHERE TO BACKUP

      ONLINE  (For large size MP4s)

  •  Get a free Dropbox or Box.com account
  •  Install sync software – create a Sync Folder
  •  Before uploading your vid to Vimeo or YouTube,  drag  the MP4 file into  your Sync folder and let it auto-backup


EXTERNAL DRIVES
– have at least two, use weekly automated backup software. Install and relax, but check 2x yearly.
 

Backup Your Own YouTube Channel

Tools: 4K Video Downloader or winxdvd

Backup Your Favorite YouTube Channel or Playlists – see above. Or https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/download-videos-youtube-playlist/

Some tools also allow you to back up Vimeo Vids: https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl

Consider supporting a Dark Archive – either within the OTW or independently run, where fans can upload vids for preservation.


Additional suggestions and tips welcomed.
