Is there a way to filter out reposts during the upload process like TheYNC does? If adding intros to videos interferes with this then a rule against them could work. Basically use the video as is so it doesn't interfere with the repost filter process.

Video site can in fact detect and reject the file in case the file has the same signature, but I disabled it since it works 1 out of 10 times. Every site out there re-encodes the video, and that changes the file's signature/size, and makes it a "unique" file, and it just wouldn't be detected as a dupe.

As far as intro/outro or watermark adding, I agree with you. We should disallow those.... but only if the poster is the one adding them.

Has an official announcement been made yet? I saw someone make a notice already before seeing this thread. Was a bit confusing.
There was an announcement for a minute at the top of all pages. It's gone now but uploads are adhering to the request by Libertas about leaving videos as is when uploading.
