Lose Access Google Drive

Post by fiflydramalover » Jul 19th, '21, 18:58

Hey all! I recently saw an update about how Google Drive will change in the future that might effect downloads.

Code: Select all

Essentially, if you haven't already used a link to a publicly shared file, then you will lose access to them in the future. Instead, all publicly made links will need key to access. This will come into effect starting mid September. So! If you're planning on watching anything that's already available as a public Google Drive file, make sure to access it now. I'm guessing people will start giving out keys soon, though it may be a bit inconvenient. However, file owners can opt-out of using a key (starting July 26th), so some files may not lose the public access.
