Just a couple of announcements:
First, it looks like GMM Grammy has decided to cancel its decision to pull all of their videos off Youtube? I haven’t heard any official statement about it, but it was funny because at first they were uploading them privately, then using the private link to link to it on Gmember in their own embedded player, however they were removing the Youtube logo, overwriting the player code, and overwriting Youtube’s advertisements with their own, which was a breach of Youtube’s TOS since they were basically stealing youtube’s bandwidth. When they were caught by fans, they quickly restored the Youtube logo and stopped overwriting the advertisements, but now they seem to have given up and made all the videos public again on Youtube and have returned to uploading?
So I guess all the fans boycotting did some good? 🙂 Maybe they realized they were only stunting themselves from the international market?
Regardless the reason, I’m just happy to see they have decided to continue uploading their music videos on a stable, international website for fans all over the world to enjoy~
Deungdutjai has reached it’s 1,000th song translation!! 😀
I want to thank all of you for all your requests, comments, support, and 460,000+ page views~
It all means a lot to me, and you give me the inspiration to keep this site alive! 🙂
Since this site has grown a lot since I first started it, I’m considering what else I can do to continue expanding it.
A new layout is in order, for sure, I was even thinking of investing in my own host and domain name.
I was also thinking about creating a Facebook page for Deungdutjai, just to have a more communal place and stimulate more discussion where you guys can post your thoughts and reviews about songs, music videos, albums, and meet other Thai music fans. There I can also update with new release news, upcoming artists, disbanding groups, record label news, concerts, etc. Maybe even have a Thai word of the day for those interested in learning Thai or expanding their vocabulary. We’ll see what my spare time allows, and I’ll keep you all updated!
I just want to end this post with a big
to all my lovely readers and supporters!
Stay tuned for more updates and translations! 🙂
