    Kedi is Here: usfilms.net/v-video-PpG0z-npFIY.html
    If you live somewhere where YTRed isn't available, there will probably be a one-time purchase option.
    I'm really excited about trying this out. I love documentary film so much, it's right in our wheelhouse. In it's best form, it is entirely about finding ways to understand the world more complexly. And this is such a great movie to start with. In a difficult and complicated moment in our history, we have to take time to be calm and appreciate our world for a moment. I hope you get a chance to do that with this movie.

Questions: Why won't YouTube sell Red my Country?! Trust me, they want to. In order for YouTube Red to work, everything that is on YouTube (which is a mess of user-generated and big-media-owned content with millions of owners) has to be ad free. You can't launch YouTube Red with 1% of the content still having ads. Add to this that when you upload a YouTube video, you agree to a licensing agreement that it not super easy to change. You also can't have a video just disappear when you're using Red, that would be paying money for /less/ YouTube. When they launched Red in the US (and other countries) they had to go through and make sure all of the licensing agreements for all of the content on the site made Red legal. But each of those agreements are different for different countries, which, as you might imagine, is a huge freaking mess. Adding to that, major media companies know YouTube wants VERY BADLY to have Red everywhere, but major media companies also want other things from YouTube, so they're using Red access in smaller markets as a bargaining chip in other, unrelated negotiations. It's a huge pain in the butt, basically. Didn't you say you would never post YouTube Red stuff on Vlogbrothers? No, we said I wouldn't do it unless it were something different that we believed in and that we couldn't do otherwise. Producing a documentary film is expensive, and the filmmakers should be compensated for their work. We could never license this film ourselves, or produce anything like it ourselves. This way, the film makers are succeeding in a way that was never available before and the film gets to connect with a new audience. We've always been intrigued by YouTube Red, it allows the entire YT ecosystem to be less reliant on (increasingly unreliable) advertising, and more reliant on human connection. That being said, we would never put normal Vlogbrothers videos behind a paywall, and that will never change.

Looks like a good documentary, but the one-time price is ridiculous. $14.00 to watch a YouTube video is too much, especially here in SE Asia where that's a significant amount of money.

I've read most of the people dissenting against this and I haven't found much explanation of a Why it is bad beyond "They tricked me by saying it was a special video" and "They said they'd never do this" (Which is not the case) or that they're just mad because YouTube Red isn't available where they live. I get that last point, it sucks, but why go all angery on vlogbrothers for that when what they are doing is literally how to increase the speed at which YouTube Red spreads to new areas. If Red is shown as successful more and more, then YT can spend more and more money and time on expanding to new horizons. This video could very well help to show the large amount of demand to YT, especially assuming these people who were willing to complain to someone with Zero power over it actually also complained to the correct people as well so that their complaint meant something.

Can you explain? I honestly don't see a problem with this, and as the pinned post explains, they will never put regular vlogbrothers content behind a paywall. This reminds me of Patreon, You still get the regular content, but there is more content if you are interested and able to pay. It's also helpful to remember that John and Green are technically employees of youtube, and were probably more open to this idea because they want to be on their good side, which I personally don't see as a bad thing at this point.

This was actually available as an in-flight movie when I was coming back from my study abroad in England this January. I was surprised to see something from youtube red as an inflight movie, but happy I got to watch this. It was indeed very lovely and tranquil, and something nice to watch in that strange and bittersweet transition from an exciting study abroad experience to going back home. Cats really are just the best thing :)

Gotta kinda disagree with you there Hank, we have the same level of relationship with dogs, it's just manifest differently. Us humans plus cats and dogs seem to have somehow worked out that it's mutually beneficial to us all that we live together and provide whatever advantage we can give to the other. Granted we would arguably do more actual stuff for our beloved pets, it's easier for us to do those things than for them to if they can do it at all, I mean neither a cat or a dog can take themselves to a vet when they need medical attention. Even though they may not provide us with so much tangibly in return, they show us love and the many ways it can be expressed and understood even across species. Love is the most valuable thing ever.

Hi Hank and John! Im doing an assignment on the distribution of Kedi at the moment and was wondering if you could help me out? I mostly need to fill in the blanks about how Kedi has been successful on YouTube Red. How many people have viewed it so far? What is the percentage of users that follow this channel that currently have YouTube Red? Is there a number similar to box office total that you could give me? Would you say that distrobuting on YouTube Red would have saved the filmmakers money? Or perhaps did they loose what they would have saved on the money you guys made for hosting the documentary? The assignment is due in on Friday (or Thursday for you guys cos I live in the future in Australia). If you could help that would be amazing :D if you cannot, thats fine I understand. I found you're video on the complications of 'advertising' this film on your channel to be very interesting. It made me wonder if one day YouTube channels will be the equivalent of separate cinema venues. Like YouTube bought the rights and hosted it at your location, a online cinema that you manage.

You know its not always rainbows and butterflies for these cats. Many people torture them. We as animal lovers feed them take care of them but there are a lot people who dont want these cats in the streets. They kick the food and the water bowls we put in the streets they poison the food, and we dont always have the money to take them to the vet when they are sick and the government facilities dont care about these stray animals. Most of the stray animal dont live up to their full life circle they die around 7-8 years old if they can survive the first few months. If a cat gives birth to 5 kittens mostly 3 of them dies in the first month because of the enviromental factors or simply they just cant find food or sometimes people just kick them and kill them, sometimes these people are children... It is really nice that you are trying to show our connection with these cats but there are two sides here. We are happy to take care of them but we are constantly in fear that something or someone will hurt them.

"On vlogbrothers channel we don't do brand deals. I don't know why. Brand deals is when an advertisers paid a Youtuber to promote something..." - from YT Red video on hankschannel What makes you change your mind? Just to say, YT Red asked you to watch it, host it, and promote it. Then you uploaded it, uploaded videos to promote it, gained revenue from it. There is no denying it IS a brand deal. Just why did you change your mind about brand deals? Why not let people know it is sponsored content upfront? Also, concern on YT Red, is it a deal with vlogbrothers only? Or is it going to be a thing with channels YT "prefers" or are "partners"? This would totally be like YT offering YouTubers personal favours by supplying extra content and extra income (by giving them some documentaries/videos they didn't need to put any effort into making). With all the things that happen with ad thing, with censorship of lgbt+ and related content, etc, I do not think giving YouTube this extra power in influencing creators' content is good. Hank, I respect what you did for the internet community and creators, but I don't think giving YouTube that extra power and accepting this favour is right.

"The relationship between people and cats is one of the only relationships with other species that people don't dominate." I have literally never heard a more true statement. - insert side anecdote- The other night I was trying to study (for a REALLY BIG exam) but my cat didn't think I should be doing that. So I sat down at my desk and then he called for food. Then I sat down again and he called for water. Then I sat down again and he called because he wanted someone to watch him eat the food. Then I sat again and he called because he wanted someone to watch him drink the water. Then I sat down again and he called because in the place where he wanted to sleep the blanket wasn't properly crumpled... or something. Eventually I was too tired to continue study so I decided to go to bed. So I climbed into bed. Now even though he had been peacefully sleeping at the bottom of the bed for hours, he now decided that he wanted to sleep on the pillow. Of course. Why not? So then I moved him back to the place where he had been sleeping before PERFECTLY SOUNDLY. But he just walked back and tried to sleep on the pillow again. This happened about 10 times. Eventually I had an idea. So I read Genesis 1:26 to him, in which God gives man dominion over all animals. I thought that maybe no one had ever read that to cats. I LIVE TO REGRET THAT DECISION. Because then he decided that sleeping on a pillow was just too mainstream. So he tried to sleep on my face. But landed up just stretching me instead. I give up. Cats can just do what they want. Resistance in futile.

So ya, I am not sure how the YTR prices are set for people who live in areas without YouTube Red, but if the premise is to offset the lack of youtube red subcriptions with one time fees they are way out of the ballpack. That single documentary costs a month and a half worth of youtube red subscription. It would cost me more to watch it here on youtube than if I were to go see it in a theatre if it were available there. I just can not understand how they think they have set up appropriate prices for single purchase YTR shows when the prices are set assuming that actual YTR subscribers watch almost no YoutubeRed content. And thats not considering the fact that IMHO the best feature is the ad removal :(

She is lovely, funny and brilliant and it made me wanna see it even more. When it's available, I'll definitely try to watch it through YouTube Red to support :) BTW, I'm from Brazil, any chance for it to be translated to Portuguese? It doesn't even need to be Brazilian Portuguese, it may be PT-PT, just so it may be available for a wider audience :))

it's odd to me that people are talking about vlogbrothers being sell outs as if they made content for their viewers then put up a paywall when in actuality they are promoting something that they like and giving it a home to thrive on their channel. would you call them a sell out for promoting a book you have to buy? I'd be angry if they made their own documentary that was meant for the community then uploaded it as a ytr original but this is simply a way to draw attention to something that was made already that hank and john liked enough to deem it worthy of being promoted and I trust that they wouldn't have done this if it wasn't something that they believed in

I'm not a big commenter but I would like to say somethings now. First of al, I really don't mind that there is a pay wall video on VB now. I would have watched the video if it was free, but now I can't. And I don't mind about that. The fact that I can't afford (and want) a subscription shouldn't limit creators to make content for others to watch and shouldn't limit the people that do have a subscription to watch it here. I understand it might be upsetting that you don't have access to it but personally I think it is just reality that sometimes you need to accept that there is something that you can't have that others can have. No matter how much you try the world will never be 100% equal. And you can be sad about that or you can be happy about the things that are available for you. (Not saying you can't strive for equality but, there are different ways to do so) O and also: Maybe I'm lucky but I never really had a problem with youtube, al the video's I like show up in my subscription tap and I'm actually really happy I don't get notifications, they would really drive me crazy.

This is super interesting to me, and super relevant. I'm about to take my final exam for film and documentary is one of the units. Documentary is such an interesting and ridiculously varied medium that is often used to cleverly, but you're right, there doesn't appear to be a proper place for them. They tend to do badly in cinemas, less young people are watching TV, so that leaves places like Youtube and Netflix, and I think that documentary is slowly changing to suit this new platform
