Does anyone know any work-arounds?

I make movie tributes as a hobby. Its always been a huge uphill battle as most get blocked even though you can put the word tribute on the end of any movie title and get tons of vids that are not blocked and I'm left wondering how these are allowed? Does anyone know how to get around this aside from using that "fair use" paragraph? Not bragging but i think mine are pretty good. A lot of effort goes into them.

The last video i posted was up for a few months and now it won't play and it says theres an error vide failed to convert. None of the other ones have this. Any idea's or solutions?

Use a different site.

Google does not give a **** about you. If there's any chance their profits will dip in the slightest fashion over protecting your videos under fair use, they will throw you under the bus faster than you can say what the ****.

That isn't going to change anytime soon.

Most people don't understand what Fair Use actually is. If you're not uploading copyrighted materials without permission you have little to worry about (although there have been rare issues with people abusing the copyright claim system). That said, it doesn't sound like your vid was taken down due to a copyright claim. I'd either contact YouTube (There's a "Send Feedback" button at the bottom of every page. I've used it a few times and the problem has always been corrected quickly, though they never send a reply so it could just be coincidence or magic or something) or I'd try re-uploading the original vid. If you get a copyright strike on your account it will be very clear.

I do music covers. The way I got around it was to stop using the original audio. I still can't monetize them (for obvious reasons) but now they just slap some ads on the video instead of taking it down, which I'm fine with.
Fan of metal? Don't mind covers? Check out my youtube and give me some feedback

Move to Blip tv. It's the place where Red Letter Media and That Guy With The Glasses post their full videos without any cuts or any takedowns.
Are we not men?

Many take downs are automatic, I dunno if it still works but I know people would pitch down the audio or slow down the video by a tiny margin. That'll change the audio signature.
