Archive Team is rescuing Yahoo Videos, and needs help!

From Archive Team (no relation):

So as usual Yahoo! is deleting terabytes of user-generated content and as usual they are doing it in a clunky, fucked-up manner and as usual the timeframe is arbitrary and out of nowhere and as usual Archive Team is here to clean up the fucking mess.

So we’ve been downloading it. We’ve been downloading it for a month. Seriously.

It’s been a crack team of people, all donating time, bandwidth and disk space to download every single video out of Yahoo! Video. We’re at full clip, but we need more volunteers, or we’re not going to make it.
