When we first launched Unauthorized.TV as an alternative to YouTube, I uploaded about a hundred videos, meaning we had a ton of both paid and free content available. Over 100 of you subscribed to my channel for $5 a month and got to see my long-form demonstrations, Tiny House Expat Living episodes and other exclusive content.
Then we had some technical difficulties and the videos went down. I reloaded them, then we had more difficulties, this time due to our runaway success.
In a nutshell, Unauthorized got so much traffic that we crashed the system.
For those of you who have been writing to share your frustration with the system, I feel your pain. I have literally spent a few work weeks worth of time uploading, sorting and repairing and re-sorting videos since the channel was launched.
Now it looks like the growing pains are easing off. The bandwidth issue has been solved and a chunk of my subscriber-only content is now back up.
I also have my video How to Grow 21 Amazing Trees From Seed up for free for everyone, which means even if you aren’t a subscriber you can watch it – and even download it – from my channel.
All the tiny house build videos should be up again shortly – we’re just missing a couple right now.
A big thanks to the Unauthorized dev team for finding a way to get everything working without breaking the bank.
And thanks for sticking with us. More content coming.
All 12 Tiny House Expat Living episodes are now up again for subscribers.
It’s awesome to see that you guys are growing so much, you’re crashing your infrastructure. Definitely in the class of ‘good problem’ – congratulations on the growth!

Here it is 2021 and I still can’t get any UTV videos to play properly. I’ve tried Brave, Firefox, and all the others. They try to deny access claiming the site is “Unsafe” then when I bypass and go anyway, the videos will only play two or three seconds at a time with two or three seconds of buffering between. They never catch up.
I am leaving Unauthorized and will be launching something new here soon. Thanks for the support. I’m sorry it’s had trouble.
