If you wish to file a DMCA/takedown, don't want something hosted here, want to submit anything (taking into consideration what I've listed below) to the archive, or just want to contact me for any reason at all, send me an email

While initially this archive was mainly created for gachimuchi content, I have expanded it into archiving collaborations of other sources, such as:
- Inmu / New Year's Dreams
- Ronald McDonald
Content I am actively looking for
New collaborations. If you are a host or participant of a collaboration I'm currently not hosting, feel free to get in touch with me.
Please note that I typically will want HQ renders of the video + audio rather than downloading from youtube or niconico.
Anything related for collaborations that I currently host, but files I don't already have.
Such as WAV/FLAC/MP3 mixes of the audio or instrumentals for example
- Content that has been removed and has not been reuploaded.
- Higher quality versions of content that I am currently in posession of.
If you are a content creator, I would be very interested in having things like master renders of audio and video, since YouTube and (especially) SoundCloud recompress data very strongly.
(Especially WAV or FLAC for audio)
Project files would be a very cool addition too, if you're willing to make them public.
Content I am storing (and may accept)
- Individual videos from YouTube, NicoNicoDouga, BiliBili, VK, Vimeo and other video hosting sites
- Complete archives of some content creator's accounts. If you want your/someone else's account archived, let me know (and why)
- Misc. pictures and audio
- Some Ricardo Milos videos (with some conditions; see below)
- Gachimuchi source content (the original gay porn videos).
- May not accept it since I already have most of the videos.
- I don't make this content publically visible (from this server at least) as it would get DMCA'd instantly
All of the above are at my discretion.
Things I am not currently looking for or accepting
- Big Ricardo Milos meme compilations/collections. However if an individual video is good enough I'll accept it
- Low quality reuploads (only when the original version still exists, otherwise I don't have much of a choice)
If you wish to submit something
If you have something that you think should be in this archive, and feel like I will accept it (or if you're unsure, ask me anyway), send me an email about it.
If the content is no longer online and you have it:
- Upload it to a service like Google Drive, MEGA, or catbox.moe and then send me the link. Additional metadata (such as from youtube-dl) is appreciated too.
- Send me the link and I'll archive it myself.
- Archive it yourself manually using youtube-dl, and upload it as above. Be sure to grab the metadata too.
Software that this archive is using
- ffmpeg for any media manipulation
- My custom fork of youtube-dl to do downloading from many video and music hosting sites.
- I've made my own fork and implemented critical bug fixes for niconico and bilibili support, as the main developers are too lazy to do this and are total hardasses for some reason.
The arguments that I use are this, if you wish to do your own archival, and/or submit them to me:
youtube-dl --retries infinite --add-metadata --write-all-thumbnails --embed-thumbnail --write-annotations --write-info-json --all-subs --write-sub <video link>
- A modified version of h5ai for an interactive file index. Modifications are for style and hiding metadata/custom thumbnail files.
Things that still need to be done
- Automate playlist/account scraping
