2. YOUTUBE IS DELETING VIDEOS
Youtube is not the only plattform around. Try others too.
We recommend http://www.rutube.ru/ (use google translator to translate). They will not remove anything normally.
Or try http://motherless.com%20/
here is a whole list of alternatives: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_video_hosting_websites
You can also reupload on Youtube but Youtube has an automatic detection system that seems to work with the video hash. Re-encode the video to reupload it or it will be directly removed.
3. I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO VIDEO AND I HAVE NO EDITING TOOLS.
If you do not know how to video but you have a Windows copy with the on board Movie Maker here is a tutorial we made a few month back:
Links to necessary free tools are in the video description as well as some general information on video licenes, DCMA, formats and encoding.
