For those of you who haven't heard yet, the FBI took down MegaUpload and MegaVideo. All of the toons in the Retro Toon Room were hosted by MegaVideo so this means that there are no more videos in the RTR. I was planning on removing the big link to it at the top right eventually and replace it with a future feature but I never planned to take it down permanently.

Just thought everyone should know.

RIP RTR.

Wow I never watched the RTR but megaupload being taken down is big!  I am so glad a month ago I downloaded my doll files from my megaupload account!  If I didn't they would be lost forever because the site that created my dolls no longer exist!  That bites I always used megaupload for everything!  Most of the files on that site didn't have to be downloaded in millions of parts!

Rip RTR
Rip megaupload!

Whoa, I completely forgot that the toons were hosted by megaupload. Well, this completely sucks. I gotta find someway to watch all of those old cartoons somehow.

RIP RTR. You will be missed.

RIP RTR, RIP MegaUpload.

I'll miss those toons...

Next comes MediaFire... this isn't going well.

But everything ends at one point, nothing lasts forever. The owners of MegaUpload must be devastated.

It really is sad that MegaVideo is gone. I watched so many old movies, old cartoons, and shows that are on channels I don't get because I can't afford them. Now I don't know how I'm going to watch Dexter. Sad time. I didn't realize MegaVideo was MegaUpload. Here I thought MegaUpload being shut down wouldn't harm me any. *Face palm* Big RIP for Retro Toon Room and MegaVideo. I will miss you dearly

So that's why I couldn't use the RTR. Oh well... I wish I could. I miss all those old shows. They were great. The RTR was rarely talked about, and probably rarely used, but it will be missed. RIP RTR!

Sad, sad, terrible news everyone. About the Retro Toon Room, I mean. But it seems that any site that features old cartoons eventually gets on the radar, and has to take them down. But Vizzed never even got that chance.

As for Megaupload... Good riddance. Now hopefully they'll take down rapidshare too! I hate, hate HATE when people upload anything to those sites. There are so many better places.

Lazlo Falconi : Probably for the best anyway. Might be able to get away with having classic games but when it comes to movies and tv shows, there's no getting away with that.

Well, that's too bad. It's a good a thing I wasn't really attached to the RTR in the first place. x3

Well, all the more reason to get the VGR up and running, right?

I only watched the first few episodes of Pokemon in the RTR. I would have watched more in there if they hadn't already been taken down before MegaVideo itself was, but I, personally, am just glad that I never had an opportunity to get too attached to the RTR. Thanks anyway for providing it for us, David. I'm sure it gave some others their childhoods back.

It's not like any one ever actually used it... did they?

I know that I only used it once or twice, and that was just to see what shows there were.

At least it wasn't a very big feature. lol

Wow. Now that I think about it, I should have seen this coming. Although, I'd forgotten that the RGR content was from MegaUpload. That really sucks. It wasn't really advertised, but the cartoons were the other half of Vizzed.

I would say try linking to Youtube, but I don't know if that'll be allowed for use on here.

Cyro Xero : The only problem with YouTube is that it's really unstable. People post videos and then get in trouble and their taken down and they're reposted by someone else and they're posted in three parts or six parts and the parts from one poster don't match up with the parts from another poster and it's just a really huge mess and it would be hard to keep all of that together.

Plus, Davideo was already planning to remove the link to the Retro Toon Room, so it might as well just be taken away all together.

I knew about how messed up it could be from Youtube, but I wasn't sure if there would be a legal problem with have their videos here. Then again, it is user-based, who got it from another source, so...

Since youtube now lets you do longer videos, I would think about doing youtube but just to stay out of the radar, I think I'll stay away from this sort of stuff from now on. Just to many legal issues when it comes to music, movies and tv shows and I'd rather not make vizzed a target because of it.

rcarter2 : i figured since you never heard of megaupload you hadnt used megavideo either =p
i never even tried the rtr myself, although its not hard to find most of them online anyway so its not a major issue, megavideo generally offered high quality ones though, but i know a few sites that can deliver equal results.
