|sme restricts playback of this video in playlists. watch this video in a standalone player. What does this mean?||applelovesHim||6/23/11 10:37 AM|
I tried playing videos on my playlist but it doesn't work for some reason and this message pops out. So, what does it mean?

Its a new Sony label restriction I believe. Very frustrating.

Dang it! So there is no way to solve it? D:

its strange it plays for a little while then I get that restriction notice.
but it is after the playlist has to repeat several times
on my single video playlist it plays around 5 times before I get the message
google is just messing up youtube again!!!!
one way to get around it is to play the standalone player then load up playlist its been working for me so far but its so annoying

Time and time again Music Labels have provided the world with examples of how they are their own worst enemy... looks like SONY has given us another example of ineptitude.
|louiseduvee||7/20/11 5:21 AM|
Please! If You Tube can't remove these Sony and SME problems, remove your contacts with these entities/companies!
|greenflams||7/20/11 8:31 AM|
If they remove the contracts, you will NOT even be able to find those videos on YouTube. You will need to order the DVDs the traditional way, lol.
Thousands will lose their accounts to copyright claims / strikes.
|trails456||7/20/11 4:30 PM|
it strange throw
some of these videos have been on hear for years and wore not touched untill now
besides some are theme songs for the opening and closing and some are games being played by someone with differnt music
|greenflams||7/20/11 8:07 PM|
Each day, new companies are being invited to join the YouTube Contend ID program.
The companies only recently found out about their content being uploaded illegally to websites. So they are contacting websites asking them to take down their material.
YouTube, as the most civilized UGC video site, now invites those companies to join the Content ID program so that they can easily catch the thieves of their content and decide whether to track, block, or monetize the content.

When I run a playlist on YouTube, I get advertisements popping up every few songs. Maybe if YouTube ponied up a little bit more of that coin to SME they wouldn't ruin my playlists.
|Kest F||8/10/11 2:09 AM|
it means Sony wants you to pirate their music instead of taking advantage of youtube's advertising

|boldbearings||8/29/11 10:13 AM|

|taylrbd||9/1/11 7:00 AM|
What I don't get is how the big music companies fail to realize the sales gained by having their music out on YouTube. Heck, over 3/4 of my entire sprawling hard copy (CD, DVD) musical collection (read that "PURCHASED musical collection") has come from finding an artist on YouTube that I would in no other way have found out about. Good grief, just who plays music like George Winston or myriads of classical or foreign artists (or any other non-pop) on American overwhelmingly pop music stations? What store carries millions of artists CD/DVD's in their stores in any meaningful way? Seems to me YouTube is the best way to market an artist/music around the globe, yet as usual, the Blue Suits would rather control control control then see the future. The "it's mine" mentality.....geez. When will they see the light?
|Silverw||9/3/11 4:14 PM|
taylrbd is absolutely right. Research shows that people buy MORE CDs when they have access to free songs online. If they find an artist they love, they'll often buy the CD. If it wasn't for the internet access, they wouldn't even find out about many of the artists, or if they already know about them, they wouldn't be able to form a bond to their music.
|ConditionOfAnonymity||9/3/11 11:56 PM|
.... hey gbcali, wut ineptitude? it dat a new band? cuss it is, i don't like em.
|ConditionOfAnonymity||9/4/11 12:14 AM|
between the SME problems with their standalone players and the commercials with vevo and or random commercials and ads, Youtube is going downhill quickly. c'mon folks, somebody fix this crap already. i'm getting mighty tired of arguing with my puter, i tell my wife that i'm just teaching my puter language skill, in a heated up manor. most of the music exces, has no common sense even some with no sense at all. i've found many of different artists, bands, singer/songwriters on YT that i would of never heard any other way, and bought the CD's. so, shows to go ya, that free air play does make-em money in the long run. what dum-masses. hey Sony, bite me, and not in any good way. and while we're at it, Vevo, bite me... and i'm saying this in a nice way, you really don't want to hear what i really think.
|louiseduvee||9/5/11 4:35 PM|
I am boycotting Sony now - oh boy, did they just lose some money!
|TheSloopi||9/10/11 2:25 AM|
youtube its been nice knowing you, ive had enough, i just want to enjoy some music and ill be damned if im gonna be enterupted in my reverie by having to change the disc or wait for the sales pitch to end. there are other sites im out!
|ConditionOfAnonymity||9/23/11 6:23 PM|
....... i hate vevo, sony and all this crap their doing to YT, and google YT is bout the only thing good going for ya right now in my book. ya messed the news page up, stop it already... stop this SME sh!t already. the whole propose of building playlists is to just let them play, you f****** idiots. why is it someone always has to screw over we the damn people? on anything and everything, someones alway trying to muck it up. i'm waiting any minute when i sit on the toilet a stinking commercial will start playing, and before you can wipe ya arse you have to listen to some arsewipe sell their damn wares. i personally will go out of my way "not" to buy your stinking wares that you idiots think i can't live without. go ahead YT, Giggle, Sony and whoever, screw it up futher. then you'll end up losing the whole kit-n-kaboola....
.............. signed, a pissed off user of your losing marketshares... COA ...
|nightskull82||10/14/11 3:59 PM|
I think it's stupid for record companies to put any restrictions on anything because the whole point of letting others listen to artists is to hopefully want to hear more and want to buy the whole records,cds,cassettes, or pay to download it.Ifthey are constantly putting restrictions on things they themselves are restricting themselves of any and all monies earned from people buying their music after hearing it on youtube or anyother web site
|djmambito||10/17/11 12:22 AM|
Something is very wrong here.
In a embedded playlistplayer it depends on which browser is used
for that "sme restricts playback in playlists" shows up.
ie: in one browser it shows and the video wont play
in an other browser..same playlist...same video ...no "sme restricts" message and the video plays fine.
So what is this ? exactly another bug ! since we dont believe that SME also restricts certain browsers
Since this happens all the time and since it causes problems for my embedded player on my website
i like this repaired.
So can someone pass this to yt-staff and confirm that to me ?

|Denzel75||10/28/11 2:52 AM|
there only one good reply to this. i was actually considering buying the Asteroid's galaxy tour and was listening to the tracks in a playlist, when this message came up. i have now decided to not buy it, but pirate it in stead.
you reap what you sow, Sony!
Good thing it's actually legal in my country to download the files, it's only illegal when you upload, so my pirated copy is going to be perfectly legal.
read this and learn, Sony, you've just pushed a potential customer away.

I can't bitch about this retarded practice enough; I am only 38 and don't wish to waste the rest of my life doing so. It gets really old having to stop my computer work every time SMfuckingE bounces my playlist because I listen to a song more than once. Can anybody direct me to a public live streaming music site that does not suck?
|Nardin31||11/6/11 6:53 PM|
ok im watching videos of a band that are not signed on with sony...why do i still get this stupid msg...?????
|Berzul||11/7/11 5:17 AM|
Here is a quick fix http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBp1cm7yRZc&feature=mr_meh&list=PLED798BCA5D49C867&lf=rellist&playnext=0 this wont work anymore however if you go to the channel http://www.youtube.com/user/Saalvatorio#p/c/ED798BCA5D49C867/1/tP28nXTEVqg and just put "ED798BCA5D49C867" at the end of http://www.youtube.com/user/Saalvatorio#p/c/ it will work normally - replaying the entire playlist... And this is just an example you can do it with any Playlist really, even those that are hidden by users.
|BaseDeath||11/12/11 11:38 AM|
Why does sony feel the need to block bands that have nothing to do with them at all?
I get the SME restriction on almost every band I listen to, and I know for a fact most of them aren't with Sony and I am pretty sure non of them are..

And without paying a dime. Well - Sony - so long to you and may your bank account wonder why a guy's listening to music you own a part of and you didnt get payed. And with the money I didnt give sony I bought a T-shirt for the artists web page.
So the artist is happy - I am happy - sony .... who cares ...
|Lightshroud85||11/22/11 7:52 PM|
Just means I will have to clean out my playlist more often to track down new uploads of the songs that have not yet been blocked. Changes nothing and barely inconveniences me, certainly not enough to stop.
|dillinger9999||12/9/11 1:49 PM|

It's called censorship. Abusing the authority given to them by the law makers. If Pipa/sopa get passed, this is exactly what will happen on a much larger scale.
|LDighera||4/21/12 10:59 AM|
As you will infer from the information provided below, it is not contrary to copyright law to include only a portion of copyrighted material. It's called "Fair Use". Google should let the copyright holders fight it out in court with those they believe have infringed. DCMA not withstanding, Google/Youtube should not place themselves in the role of judge and jury of suspected copyright infringement. They just expose themselves to liability from those they have decided are infringing.
Perhaps if those who have had their video content removed from Youtube because of alleged copyright infringement actually took the copyright holder to court as the DCMA permits, some of this tyrannical censorship would cease.
In any event, I believe a good case could be made in the case of Fair Use of copyrighted material, that the copyright holder actually stands to benefit from the interest in their product generated by its public exposure.
I have a good faith belief that the material was disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification, and that I am not intentionally abusing this dispute process.
The brief sound snippet does not infringe as it is not competitive, and is solely for public benefit.
The music clips in my video are a very small percentage of the web page from which they were cut; they are not competitive; they are research for non-profit educational uses. Commercial gain is not involved, It is intended for public benefit.
If you disagree with my view, perhaps you'll be good enough to detail
the grounds for your disagreement.
Fair use is addressed here:
Often, it's difficult to know whether a court will consider a
proposed use to be fair. The fair use statute requires the courts
to consider the following questions in deciding this issue:
Is it a competitive use? (In other words, if the use potentially
affects the sales of the copied material, it's usually not fair.)
How much material was taken compared to the entire work of which
the material was a part? (The more someone takes, the less likely
it is that the use is fair.)
How was the material used? Is it a transformative use? (If the
material was used to help create something new it is more likely
to be considered a fair use that if it is merely copied verbatim
into another work. Criticism, comment, news reporting, research,
scholarship and non-profit educational uses are most likely to be
judged fair uses. Uses motivated primarily by a desire for a
commercial gain are less likely to be fair use).
As a general rule, if you are using a small portion of somebody
else's work in a non-competitive way and the purpose for your use
is to benefit the public, you're on pretty safe ground. On the
other hand, if you take large portions of someone else's
expression for your own purely commercial reasons, the rule
usually won't apply.
I have a good faith belief that the material was disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification, and that I am not intentionally abusing this dispute process.

|bayne420||5/11/12 6:46 PM|
i was bored so made a playlist of just ONE video IE SOAD 36 and it was set to auto-play, well low and behold it will just keep trying to after playing constantly 5 times+ it would put the SME restriction banner. So yah know from helpful advise to just go with standalone player (Ex. same original video source) then just backspace back to player then reload the page. Well so i was curious as to why it would not just cache the info as THIS from the playlist IS the original content?
Upon further investigation, seems that the restriction will just keep reloading the one video in the playlist regardless to knowing that IT has been placed on a restricted side... IDK who first thought up the playlist feature in youtube, or why SME has any control over it, unless they intend for youtube to not have a playlist feature.
|Random Rage||6/15/12 5:23 PM|
What is the gd f-ing difference whether or not it is in a playlist or not?!?!?! WTF!!!!
|Klementine||6/15/12 8:06 PM|
Hello Random Rage
If you really must know the the truth - then here is the truth -
Women are very smart. Especially when matters come to who gets more attention. So the record label hires the women to do the advertising and promotion - because we know how to get what we want.
And to get what we want is to first remove all the competition - in this case - the rest of your playlist.
By doing so - she boots out the fotter and all eyes must now focus on her - AND any related videos that she wants you to notice.
That's why ;-)

well YEP, artist should control their music not labels, label are often way more greedy, and i know this "restriction can be dealt with using macros and scripts and plugins" so why the heck bother utube?
all this does is encorage people to learn to break your rules and make the origanal content less enjoyable.

|Connor Connley||2/18/13 12:19 PM|
Forgive me for having to say this, but I see that the Governement's have confused the terms "thief" and "borrower". If what you say is true, and people are STEALING Video's off of Youtube, then that would imply that nobody else can view the video stolen. Stealing imply's ownership, people who download the video's are COPYING them. Yes, Stealing is a crime, however copying is not, otherwise, we'd have been arrested in our early years for copying what our siblings/parents did when they were teaching us how to talk & walk. What I want to know is why youtube and the other company's are going to the lengths they go to, in order to stop a few thiefs, at the price of ALL their loyal customers expense? They are losing more people then they're stopping. Which isn't very good profit, when the people who are making you money, are leaving, and the people "stealing" your money, are staying, and even growing in numbers.
Just my opinion, I could be wrong, human being do make mistakes.

NO! YouTube is NOT a public domain website. You may not copy content from YouTube.

Copyright laws protect videos. You must have written permission from the copyright owner of any copyrighted video you wish to upload.

A lot of people refer back to the copyright act as it says it allows you to post content for various reasons. The restrictions of various countries is understandable, though What makes this totally laughable is the fact that you have content being sold in two countries.. one of those countries is restricted on copyright even though the content is still sold in both countries.. (that is two respectable countries) Why sell the content in the first place? add this to the fact that you get to chose a stand alone player or playlist?.. LMAO.. that is nit picking and it just is "Annoying" you restrict it to a country that knows the content very well?...LOL might as well take all the genuine copies back from the genuine people that bought it instead..
