Posting an address or other similar information - personal account details, phone numbers etc. - is not wise... I suggest you delete it...?

As regards your question... what you’re seeking to do may be illegal? Law enforcement and “security, intelligence” groups can (likely) do what you seek, but by a member of the public is open to question...?

I'm not a lawyer, and don't play one on TV or even on the Internet, but....

I doubt that anything you would be *likely* to do to trace the source of a
video would be illegal. As long as you don't physically open anyone's
private files or use someone's account and password without their
permission, it is hard to see how you could break any laws.

I'm actually a bit surprised that I haven't seen any posters here with
expertiese in the kind of tracing you want. My former email provider
was able to tell me a great deal about sources of email when I asked
about specific emails. He was a personal friend. Possibly you can
get your Internet provider to help you in a similar way.

Can you explain in more detail what happened? Were these videos
uploaded to your website, or what? If it is your website, do you own
the server it is on, or does someone else host your website? If that
is the case, I expect they would be the first people to ask. But again,
I'm a bit surprised that I don't see people here with that expertiese.

I agree with trvlr.

If a person has uploaded material anonymously to an Internet site then any attempt to breach their privacy by trying to determine who they are is likely to be a breach of data protection laws in most countries.

There would be little point in asking a website owner to breach privacy in this way. I'm sure that most are far too sensible to do such a thing.

The real question is why you want to trace the uploader. If you think they have done something illegal, or have breached your privacy, then the matter should be reported to the authorities. Trying to act as a vigilante is not only likely to be illegal but also may have unintended consequences for yourself.
