I was going to watch one of his older bell test videos, but when I looked at his channel, all of his videos were apparently gone. The worst part about this is that I haven't seen his bell test video from March 2015 (because at around that time, college had a higher priority to me than watching videos). I am disheartened by this.

Any idea why he deleted* all his videos? I'm sure there's a good reason, but I personally don't like it when something like this happens without warning.

*Sidenote: I am almost certain that all the videos posted to his channel because I had email notifications enabled at the time when the March 2015 test video was posted. I clicked on the "View video" button (since I use Gmail) and it said that the video is unavailable.

I was wondering the same thing. I went on his channel today and his videos are gone...It really bothers me because I enjoyed watching his videos, because he made long and interesting test videos. Let me know if you guys find anything about about him! :)

Sorry for major bump, I just wanted to give some closure if anyone was still wondering. Twoplyboy has one video up as of about a month ago, and someone asked him in the comments why he deleted all the videos. He basically said that some of the building owners didn't like that their buildings were on YouTube, and he decided to delete all of his test videos to avoid any legal issues with building owners. It's unfortunate that this happened, but it's for the best I guess.

Actually, I've heard some people claim that some, if not all of his videos were set to private rather than deleting them.

That could be possible. All he stated in the comment was that he "had to pull them down." I guess it's open to interpretation.

I'm pretty sure they're gone. Take a look at his view count, only 872 views. That covers the one video he still has posted. Even if private or unlisted, the views from the rest of the videos would still show up in the total view count.

It's a shame, I always enjoyed his videos.

I apologize for the MAJOR bump, but as of 2018, twoplyboy made about 1/4 of his videos viewable again, and it turns out that he did private them, because privating your videos will still take views off of your channel, and there’s a playlist with all the tests, and it shows one’s that are non-viewable as private. The videos are ones that do not show the entire building or are legal to video in.

So the videos that are private you can only view if you are friends with him or something like that?

Nope. When a video is set to private no one except the owner of said video can see it.

Damn it. I was really hoping to see the video of the 4051s again.

Yeah they are but some which I really like including the elementary school with the flush-mount 4051s aren't up and most likely will never be put back up.
