Using Youtube videos (copyrighted material)?

Hi! I want to use videos for instructional use. I guess this is a question for the Youtube team, but I was just wondering if any of you have any experience using Youtube videos?

Thanks in advance!

I highly recommend using "Camtasia Studio" to create video tutorials having to do with using software, or other operations on a computer screen. You also need a decent microphone and audio adapter in your computer. Be sure to speak over the mic, not into it (to avoid "P-Popping" noises (implosives).

First check out the video file max size and video file format requirements on YouTube. Camtasia Studio can put out several video file types. It's easy to go too long and make a video longer than YouTube allows, so you may need to break up your tutes into a series of parts.

As far as copyright - of course your video must be entirely your own, or you must obtain a written contract from the copyright holder specifying and approving your use. See "Nolo Press" for artist contracts info.

You can embed a YouTube video on your site with no problem.

However, stealing someone else's video and uploading it on your own YouTube channel is a no-no and can get you banned from YouTube.

Hope this helps :)

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I'm thinking of embedding Youtube videos on my site. After doing a little research on Copyright and Fair Use (youtube.com/t/copyright_education) I think I'm good to go :)

Yes, embedding YouTube videos is one way you can do in your site, without violating any copyright. However, if you are thinking of owning a video tutorial, you have to create your own video. It would be best that you try this if you plan to post more than one video in your site. Jing is a free video-making tool you can use. This tool is pretty much easy to use also.

If embedding is allowed on the video, then you could add it to your site. You'll find an option to share underneath the video. Copy the embed code into your site to publish the video.

All the best!

I too made a video tutorial and added a music in the background to make it more appealing to the viewers. But now when I upload it on YouTube it says SME content or something like that... I can put the video on my website too but I keep getting emails saying this:

Your video "[Video Title is placed here]", may have content that is owned or licensed by Kontor New Media, SME, NewStateEntLtd, Blanco y Negro and Ultra Records (MVR), but it’s still available on YouTube! In some cases, ads may appear next to it.

This claim is not penalizing your account status. Visit your Copyright Notice page for more details on the policy applied to your video

You cant use music that is copyrighted. One way around that is that Youtube has creative common license available for certain music that you can use. Once you upload your videos, go to the edit video tab and you can choose music for your background.
