Notice 2021-09-09:Today one of our submissions has received a DMCA takedown request on the Internet Archive. This means that the content provider conglomerates don't tolerate even if their, otherwise publicly and freely available video, is archived in an unindexed way by a public presrevation institute.

The result of this event is that from now we will reject any video that is published by a medium or large sized media company, behind which such conglomerates might stand. In the future, please request only videos that are uploaded and created by individuals or non-profit organizations, or are very old stuff. News or other ephemeral issues may be exceptions.

Since we have no capacity to store all the content ourselves, we must rely on the Internet Archive, which means we must play by the rules enforced on them as well. Thank you for your understanding.


YouTube (mirror-translated into Hungarian: Tecsű) is inarguably the largest video sharing website in the world.

However, videos uploaded there won't stay forever, they can get deleted for numerous reasons.

With the Lecsű service, you can suggest YouTube videos for archival. You need to insert the URL of the video in the field below. We save the video and then upload to the Internet Archíve, where it will be available – hopefully – forever.

We review all submissions manually, as almost everything may be worthy to save, there are exceptions, see below. Approval may take a few days, we ask for your patience.

Note: One user can submit only one video per minute, and maximum 50 videos in 24 hours!

If you want to check what is the archiving status of a submitted video, just insert its URL again, like when you first sutbmitted the video. (Such requests don't count into the above limit.)

The technical background of this service is provided by the youtube-dl and tubeup software.

Type / insert URL here:

Processing of your request has started. It can take up to half a minute. Don't refresh the page, otherwise you might confuse the program!


Important (updated 2021-09-09):

The saved videos will finally be uploaded to the Internet Archive, on behalf of ArchiveTeam Hungary. Only content they accept can be uploaded there, so – in order to avoid being blacklisted – we filter what we archive.

ArchiveTeam Hungary decides at their own discretion what they approve and what they reject. As a rule of thumb, we don't archive the following kinds of videos:

It's important that we decide on each video one by one. We reserve the right to deviate from the above guidelines.

Then what is what we really like to archive?

We consider it especially important to save videos including, but not limited to:
