ZippCast was a video sharing service, started in 2009.[1] On May 31, 2016 Louis Gualtieri (owner) decided to shut the site down on June 5, 2016, due to financial and personal reasons.[2]

The service was interrupted on June 10, 2016.


Shutdown notice:[2]

I am shutting the project down. It has been expressed by many users that the website has a untrustworthy track record and that I cannot be trusted. I have spent well over 60,000 of my personal money into this over the last two years and countless time away from my own family. Then I have to accept statements made by various users. It is taking a personal toll on myself and its led me to stay away from the community as a whole. I do not wish to damage things any further and that is the reason for my decision. I have had a team leave me in the dust and make false accusations. A team that never did anything to help the technical or financial aspect of the project. I cannot carry it any further. It is with a heavy heart to announce the shutdown date. 06/05/2016. On this date the servers will be shutdown and the website will be inaccessible.

Time was too short and ArchiveTeam was able to save only 31% of the videos, 4.4 terabytes total.[3]

Content is also accessible through the Wayvack Machine, but the playback of videos may or may not work.

Louis Gualtieri said on ZippCast's – since deleted – Facebook page that he will transfer the servers to his home and may be able to send you your videos if you need. The exact content of the post cannot be recalled, so – and anyway – contact Louis Gualtieri if necessary.
