My Old WeatherStar 4000 Recordings I Stashed Away...
« on: May 05, 2019, 09:04:55 AM »
I recently found a DVD-R I forgot I recorded in approx. April - May of 2013 that was chock full of these WeatherStar 4000 recordings. These aren't from the tape transfers I had made of my wx4000 tapes, either (I'll get to those sometime later). The city listed on the wx4000 forecasts was Manhattan, yet I also lived in Wamego during this time. I would later move to St. George and switch to the cable company that (I assume) was the originator of the operation of the wx4000 for a few more months before moving to Topeka. This cable company would soon be going out of business and its market share dominated by Cox Communications because of an FCC complaint regarding their nonexistent setup of their Emergency Alert Systems.

Now that we have the backstory out of the way, should I be worried about Content ID and worldwide blockage of my videos? Some of the songs contained are fairly famous and are owned by big music companies.

Edit: Also, sorry if this topic doesn't really belong here. I haven't been here in a long while!

I handed the recordings to a friend, who will be uploading them onto his media channel instead of mine in fear of getting claimed by the Youtube Content ID system. Here's just a few, recorded in Wamego, KS!
