Back in December 2019, Plays TV closed its doors.
Medal TV purchased the plays.tv domain from the old Plays TV team. We did our best to try to recover any videos as well, but we were informed they were unfortunately already deleted along with all accounts.
A few things to note:
- Your Plays TV account will not work on Medal. Medal TV and Plays TV are separate companies so we did not obtain any Plays TV accounts. You will need to create a new account in order to use Medal.
- Most of the functionality from Plays.tv is coming to Medal, or is already here. Full session recording and bookmarking has been released, along with event detection (ICYMI) and different features like Game Audio Only.
If there are features we are missing that you would like to see come to Medal, check out our feedback site to see if others have made the same suggestion!
- A message from our CEO:
"If you lost clips, I did some digging and found that Archive.org has managed to back up about 50% of the videos. Recovering them is difficult. Here is a thread on how to recover your old plays.tv videos and here is a comment on how to extract your video once you have found it. Also, here is the full archive.
The data isn’t structured by username, so it’s incredibly difficult to extract anything. However, the internet never ceases to disappoint if it wants something, so I figured I’d put the information I found there in case anyone has any ideas on how to get everyone’s videos back."
We hope that you’ll enjoy continuing to be able to record your most meaningful moments with friends. Medal is here for you and we can’t wait to see what you share.
