It's temporarily under maintenance at this location : http://megavideo.bz/

You might get an error message for now, but it should be up within a week. No one stops Megaupload.


"Now at the end of everyday I lie awake at night and wait
To feel the wires of my brain get cut and quietly rearranged, and
Hear my beaten heart exclaim, 'Still, I refuse to let her go.'"

So we escape to our mistakes for they wait patiently for us.
Oh, how they always wait for me.

If my fear has kept me here only my fear can set me free."

FML. That was the best one too.


To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget

Just another way for the government to keep control over the people.


If I let you in, you'd just want out.
If I tell you the truth, you'd vie for a lie.
If I spilt my guts, it would make a mess we can't clean up.
If you follow me, you will only get lost.
If you try to get closer, we'll only lose touch

I hated that megavideo only allowed you to watch 30 minutes of video a day. I couldn't watch a full movie, and that would suck.

I think resetting your router would work... but I don't remember.

Megavideo had pretty crap picture quality from what I remember so I moved on.

"www.movie2k.to" is also helpful, ahem.


If you've got some spare time, read this:

But don't if you're easily triggered. If you're not easily triggered then go ahead.

I thought megavideo let you watch 72 minutes before making you wait half an hour?

FBI shut it down, however Anonymous already struck back, taking down the FBI, United States Department of Justice, Warner Music, Universal Music Group, US Copyright Office, and a few other websites too.


When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

As someone else said, you could watch 72 minutes with a half hour break in between. Which was annoying but it used to be 54 minutes instead of 30 so that was an improvement.

As you can see I'm going to be missing good old MV. None are as good. Videobb is alright but the ads annoy me.

As for Anon... that's fucking hilarious

And this is why I use torrents.

Catch up people.

Also, when someone says they're taking down the FBI at FBI.gov, what they're really doing is taking down a poster with the words FBI on it.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I don’t seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

Megaupload is away as well. Funny how this happens a day after mass-protests online towards SOPA. They were video hosting/file hosting sites, just like many other sites, and that is not illegal. Yeah, people uploaded copyrighted stuff, but that isn't the website's fault. This is exactly what SOPA would do, but on a smaller scale.

Mediafire better watch out.

Gotta love that XKCD comic.

I've got to be honest, the plight of Megavideo/Megaupload really doesn't bother me - the fact a grand jury indicted them, and that other countries have moved to arrest those involved, suggests they brought this pretty much upon themselves. As for Anonymous, the BBC was reporting earlier that only 2 out of the 10 pages they targeted were actually down, so I think that says it all really...

However bleak things seem, however insurmountable the darkness appears, remember that you have worth and nothing can take that away.

This really. Plus they were brought in on money laundering and counterfeiting too... which is probably what got them nailed. Thats some serious shit.
