Looks like my old gag has a new life! (Different pasta, same joke.)
Hey Chad, we’d love to get these back online, but there doesn’t seem to be a streaming video solution available that will enable us to do it anymore. We can experiment with making them available to download, but that really gets into a legal grey area with copyright laws. Would still love any suggestions anyone can offer to get these back up! If we only had ABC’s blessing, there would be no problem at all.
Hey all, in case you haven’t heard the news, Megaupload has been taken down by the FBI. This means that its sister site, Megavideo is also now offline. And since Megavideo is where all the episodes of Lost Revised were hosted, those are now all offline too.
You can read more about what went down over at ew.com.
In the meantime, can anyone recommend another site where we can host the episodes of Lost Revised? While we do feel these revised episodes are a form of artistic expression, they clearly contain copyrighted material, meaning that YouTube and Vimeo are unfortunately not an option.
Any suggestions much appreciated!
UPDATE: Just to clarify, we need a site that provides embeddable streaming-video players, not just a place to upload the files. Ideas?
The episodes are all free to watch!
Unfortunately, because of the way the players work, you will get a pop-up ad when you first click “play.” However, all you need to do is close the ad, then click the play button again, and it should function properly.
Basically, when the play button is red, clicking it will launch the ad. Then the play button will turn green (in the original window), and clicking it will play the episode.
Let us know if you’ve tried that and you’re still having trouble!
Absolutely! We’ll be finishing the whole project VERY soon. Stay tuned and let us know what you think!
Friends, it’s time for the return of Lost Revised. We’re dreadfully sorry for the long delay between episodes. Let’s call it a mid-season break, shall we? Needless to say, real life got the best of us for quite a while, but we remain committed to this project, and are now on course to see it through to the end. Episode 13 is going online today, and the final five episodes will follow shortly after.
Honestly, we figure if you stuck with Lost for the full six seasons, you clearly have a great deal of patience, and this little break is nothing compared to some of the other waits we all had to endure. Hopefully you’ve been enjoying this project so far, and have decided that the idea we set out to prove is a solid one. Check out episode 13 and let us know what you think. More to come very soon.
Hey, good question! I’m going to have to wait until I’m finished and then see. Check back in after the finale is up, and I’ll have a better answer for you then.
Meanwhile, another quick update: I know I promised a new episode over the weekend, but I’ve been super busy, and will now be on vacation for the next couple of weeks. Long story short, the next episode will be up here the first week of November.
Sorry for the delay, but I promise it’s worth it. Plus, we’re almost there!
