    I was reading a newsportal and this popped up, lol. I hope its okay to post an article snippet and link to the orginal source, since the forums says "Discuss your tactics here." I dont use this atm myself but i think about it like 1000x times.

    Porn Pirate Sites Use ‘Backdoor’ to Host Videos on YouTube

    With YouTube as one of its flagship services, Google has a dominant market share when it comes to online video.
    However, behind the scenes it is also becoming a primary source for pirate streaming sites, generating millions of views per day.

    While it’s no secret that there are pirated videos on YouTube, there is an even greater concern for copyright holders behind the scenes. As highlighted before, streaming sites often use Google’s services as a hosting ‘provider.’ On YouTube, they likely upload material without publicly publishing it. Instead, they grab “private” direct links to these videos and embed them on their websites.

    These videos are served directly from the GoogleVideo.com domain without being listed on YouTube. This means that they might also bypass the Content-ID takedown system somehow, although we haven’t confirmed this.

    Interestingly, the adult community has discovered this trick as well. While YouTube doesn’t allow people to upload porn, there are many adult sites that use the site as a hosting provider...

    yes i agree with you,
    that's not private but "unlisted" video...
    and some script grab youtube direct link ( i call private API not backdoor )
    about bypass, if in video don't have copyright music.. will be hard to takedown...

    It's called stealing bandwidth, you can do it with any website including facebook,flickr,phootbucket,imgur,dailymotion,vimeo and even porn sites themselves.

    I run xFapZilla.com, xCatt.com. Femdo.me all of the sites are on a small shared hosting account. It costs like 5$ per month to have over 1,000 videos. Al the videos are using other peoples bandwidth including Google/pornhub/facebook/mediafire/megaetc/etc.

    Every file has to be hosted on some kind of server and retrieved by your browser. The key is to retrieve that link.

    Many times companies have their links change every couple of minutes. There are methods to bypassing this as well.

    For example here's a direct link for a youtube video, it'll probably be down in the next 5 minutes: https://r14---sn-o097znll.googlevideo.com/videoplayback?mt=1484862353&mv=m&ms=au&dur=158.661&mm=31&key=yt6&signature=A8CE4C0E9DDCBDD79A30AF1586F49F779603BE1E.606AA8A5ED21BB3EB825280AA3A578CF41756412&mn=sn-o097znll&itag=22&ipbits=0&mime=video%2Fmp4&requiressl=yes&ratebypass=yes&sparams=dur%2Cei%2Cid%2Cinitcwndbps%2Cip%2Cipbits%2Citag%2Clmt%2Cmime%2Cmm%2Cmn%2Cms%2Cmv%2Cnh%2Cpl%2Cratebypass%2Crequiressl%2Csource%2Cupn%2Cexpire&source=youtube&initcwndbps=1167500&pl=26&nh=IgpwZjAyLnNqYzA3Kg0yMDAxOjU1OTo6YzQx&upn=rMb8KaerWAU&id=o-AL6_bXrVfKa1HuJhnCsCgqPULL-I1oEs-Nh-sqHHqUm9&expire=1484884151&ei=VzSBWNvII6Ko-AOsqa_ACg&ip=2601%3A204%3Ac501%3Ac620%3A8853%3A8eb3%3Ac065%3Ae7fb&lmt=1471689123306814

    There are ways ti get around the 5 minute change time though. For example you can simply place the youtube video inside your own player while hiding the youtube features using some simple php/css.

    Or you can have your script automatically retrieving the link to the server every time a user hits the play button your player.

    There are many ways to abuse a system like this.

    Even our thumbnail images are hosted with other sites like tumblr, pinterest,facebook. Although some of them are black right now because tumblr changed servers/links changed to the images.

    The downsides to this is I have to manually sit there and upload the files myself other users cant upload.


    I'm currently taking computer science though and i'm going to try to learn how to connect to the servers directly via API and retrieve the link back to my site so others can upload.


    I thought about it, and it's possible to create an entire file hosting website while stealing bandwidth. You can have 1,000's of facebook accounts and connect via fcebook API to to upload to their servers.

    On the front end it looks like the user is uploading to my site and the link he gets back will by mysite.com/download/whatever

    But really all of it would be with facebook.

    So yea, torrentfreak is full of it. This isn't some backdoor and isn't anything new.
    I'm a bit annoyed they're reporting on it though. I'm afraid it's going to get patched with Google.
