Electrical MD shutdown! – one of the Kodi scenes biggest YouTubers just got closed by YouTube in the latest Kodi Crackdown news!
The streaming scene receives another blow today, with news that the popular YouTube channel Electrical MD shutdown. Video platform giant YouTube just removed his channel from the platform for not complying with the rules and guidelines.
Who is Electrical MD?
Electrical MD is one of the most popular YouTubers in the Kodi and Streaming Scene.
Electrical MD spent years growing his channel at an incredible rate, being the first to hit over 1 million subscribers within the Kodi and Firestick Streaming scene.
His content often evolved around the promotion of third party Kodi addons, builds and popular streaming apps like Showbox, Terrarium TV and other Firestick apps that showcased how to watch free movies and shows for free.
What happened Electrical MD’s YouTube channel?
It appears Electrical MD got shutdown for failing to comply with YouTube’s community guidelines.
Whilst sometimes, the Guidelines can be rather vague, the main reasons why a channel can be closed, or striked are for some of the below (to name a few)….
- Nudity or sexual content
- Harmful or dangerous content
- Hateful content
- Violent or graphic content
- Harassment and cyberbullying
- Spam, misleading metadata, and scams
- Child Safety
More can be found about the Community Guidelines here.
We can assume, given the nature of Electrical MD’s channel, the guideline concerns were based around Copyright.
The Electrical MD YouTube channel often showcased content aimed at Firestick and Kodi users – these often involved showing how to preload a Kodi build, how to watch free movies and shows from popular streaming apps like Showbox or Terrarium TV, and VPN related videos.
This surely was a huge blow to Electrical MD who spent many years growing his Streaming channel at an incredible rate.
The first stage of the takedown was when YouTube demonetised his channel (which we will discuss below). This was obviously a big blow for Electrical MD who later relied on commissions from IP Vanish VPN sales to support the revenue loss on his channel.
Kodi Crackdown continues
Over the last few months, we have seen multiple YouTube channels be demonetised, or even closed down for providing similar content.
One of the most recent shutdowns were Husham and Kodi No Limits.
It appears YouTube do not want content on their platform that provides tutorials around the Kodi media center, as another day unfolds, the battle between content creators and social giants continue.
Whilst YouTube denies accusations that the platform does not demonetise triggered ‘keywords’ such as ‘Kodi builds’ ‘watch free movies’ and others alike, it is certainly arguable that this is not the case.
When releasing a video around Kodi content, the video will be instantly demonetised, sometimes before it is even released, as you can see below….
As you can see from the above picture, all the videos related to streaming have ‘Limited or No Ads’ which YouTube says are not suitable for advertisers.
This is another reason that could trigger a community strike or shutdown, as YouTube are more concerned about making money than supporting their content creators.
