Coub is a video sharing website founded in 2012 that was supposed to have shut down on 2022-04-01. As of September 2023 it remains online but appears lightly maintained, if at all.
On 2022-03-15, a warning banner was added to the website:
Coub will be closed on April 1, 2022. Don’t forget to download all your videos.
This notice later disappeared sometime between 0515 UTC and 0815 UTC on March 18th, and later, the announcement of the shutdown cancellation had appeared. The next announcement had been appear:
Coub will continue its work and will be developed by a new team. Details soon.
A little over 77 TiB of content was fetched before and a short time after the shutdown notice disappeared (until approximately April 1, 2022) through the coub-grab project.
