Energetictube Registration Exploited
Due to and excessive number of illegitimate registrations, apparently originating from within an IP pool residing in Kansas City, I have decided to purge our membership database of faux memberships and disable registrations for the unforeseeable future. I apologize for the inconvenience or lack of membership functionality.
Energetictube will continue to catalog renewable energy themed video, however we will no longer be able to receive public uploads directly from you our viewers. It is an unfortunate reality that there will always be those who see to disrupt our message.
If you have video content that you wish to see posted to Energetictube, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and i will personally have it added to our video database.
Thank you for your time and attention and happy viewing!

Best method of UPLOADING and other technical issues.
Hi there viewers! It has been my experience that the opportunity for file uploads to time out is increased proportional to the file size. Also .swf format seems to work the best, but most typical web formats are now supported. For the best chance of having your upload complete successfully, try to keep the total file size beneath 100mbs. Technically, the server can support much larger files. However if your local upload bandwidth is limited, you may find that short time outs in your transfer rate will not always re-establish themselves correctly to complete the upload. For that matter it is recommended that if you want to have the best chance of completing your upload, try to limit other simultaneous web activity.
At this time, due to limited resources, I am unable to offer any better alternative to the current format of the website.
I appreciate your patronage and I do hope to continue to improve upon the site given more time.
