- I saw a video that doesn't work!
Unfortunately, given the large quantity of videos on our site, there may be some instances where certain videos TEMPORARILY do not work. Typically the problem will be a "This video will be available soon" message, or the video will load only a small portion of its length. Once again, these problems are only temporary. If you were able to access a certain video page, that means it is still in the database and will be fixed. If you notice a video that doesn't work for a longer period of time, you can contact us about a video (see below).

Frequently Asked Questions by UPLOADERS  


- How to upload videos?
First create an account, then go to the video upload page. You can upload a file from your hard drive or from a web address.  

- My uploads fail at 99%, what can I do?
If your upload fails near the end (genereally at 99%), go to the 'my videos' page, there at the top you should see a link to resubmit this video to our system without having to upload it again.  


- How can I edit my videos?
You can find all your uploaded videos here. Each video has an Edit this video button.


- Do you pay for video uploads? Is there an affiliate program?
We do not pay for uploads, nor do we run an affiliate program. However, allowing you to embed any video to your site is extremely costly (for us). It would probably be more profitable for you to use them rather than sending traffic directly to other sites.  


- How can I delete one or more of my uploaded videos?
If you wish to delete a video you have uploaded, you can do it directly from your account.


- What video format is best to use for uploading?
Try to avoid exotic codecs or very recent ones. Go with standards like MP4 (H264, AAC). A high resolution, and high bitrate is always better. Contrary to common beliefs flv format is absolutely not ideal for us and is not recommended.  


- I don't see my videos published on This Web Tube, why?
Newly uploaded videos must first be encoded before they are viewable on This Web Tube. Newly uploaded videos appear around 1 hour after their encoding is completed, though it may take longer to appear in the listing (between 1 and 2 days). Please also note that our main index (NEW) doesn't display videos under 5 minutes in length. However videos of any length are listed everywhere else.  


- The video I uploaded gave an 'error while encoding', what to do?
If you see this error message, please convert your video(s) to a more conventional format and upload it again.

Frequently Asked Questions by SITE OWNERS  

- How can I import the This Web Tube database to my tube script? You can download our entire database. Follow this link please.

- Why would I want to upload my content to you? Tube sites attract an enormous amount of users. If your stuff is good, it will sell. And if it doesn't, at least you will become more popular. If you are not on the tubes, surfers will forget about you. Our channel system and content program offer many advantages. This system is self-service (for you), unlike the old ways that relied on waiting for gallery reviews and other slow processes.  

- What is the CHANNEL system? What we term 'channels' are profiles where text ads can be linked and accredited to their uploaded videos. The uploader can edit the video right after uploading. These ads appear on our pages below the top menu and inside the videos as well. The best part is that channel owners are free to manage their account and give proper credits to their uploads.  

- Who can have their channels on This Web Tube? This service is reserved for exclusive content owners only after they have uploaded a few videos.  

- How can I have my content removed from This Web Tube? This is our Content Removal page.

- How to keep track of the deleted videos? We delete a lot of videos! We understand it's a problem for you if you are embedding us. You can keep track of video deletions by using this special RSS feed of deleted videos.
