General

World of Longplays is a Video Game Museum! A longplay is a play-through of a computer or video game, created with the intent of completing it as fully as possible, mainly for the purposes of nostalgia, preservation, and possibly as a walkthrough. Our videos are like movies, they have no commentary and are recorded in their original framerate & resolution!
By posting your request in the proper forum subsection. Keep in mind that longplayers are few and mainly record games they like, so be patient, your game will get done eventually!
Please refer to the Support section on our forums. The IRC chat is also a good starting point to get some help from the admins of this site. We have some strict requirements, so make sure your longplay adheres to the rules before you record and submit it!
We post 2 longplays per day, all the other videos will be on YT eventually - check the schedule :)
Feel free to use any footage you want, as long as you credit the website, the channel and the longplayer(s) who created the footage in the video and video description :) We recommend downloading the videos on our site for the best quality! When your video is finished send us a link! What you CANT do is just reupload our videos!

If you are unclear as to what we mean by fair use we mean the video or livestream has to be transformative, as in the video/stream has to change the original video to where it's its own distinct video
Here is an example of a video that would be considered fair use: [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3MCrvirzDQ[/url]
