Can I post other people's Youtube video's on my website?

by 6 comments
I have a website for my son's sports team. I found many great instructional videos on Youtube and would like to post them on my site in a gallery.

I don't want to do anything illegal and I've read elsewhere that when the owner/creator of a video posts it on Youtube and enables the "embed code" they are giving permission for others to use it on their own sites and blogs.

Can someone please share with me the current thought on this?

Thanks!

    If there's an embed code, then there's no reason why you cannot show the video on your website. If there isn't an embed code, you can still just link to the video's page on YouTube.

    Yes you can, as long you respect Youtube TOS and terms.

    I can't post links but google for "youtube terms" and youtube TOS.

    see number 4 of the youtube terms
    4. General Use of the Service—Permissions and Restrictions

    And you are right, when posting a video users are allowed to block embedding code.

    If the you tube is not copywrite protected then you can use them.

    Yes, of course. That's how videos become viral.

    Anyway, if the videos you post violates some kind of copyright
    Youtube itself will take it down as soon as it's reported so no
    worries from your end on that one.

    That's my opinion about it.

      ?

      That is a false or unclear statement.

      All of my videos are copyright protected. That only means that no one can hack them apart and put their own name or information on them - or sell them as their own.

      They can however embed many of them - if they are kept in tact.

    Since I'm new here, I'd like to introduce myself. I am a college student at the moment, studying for computer science and like everyone else on this forum, it seems like we all want the same thing, a successful business. I've dabbled in small jobs (dog walking, lawn work, etc.), but it didn't lead to anything that could expand. For years, I've been searching for ways to start a sustainable business online, but many of my ventures have had little to no success. I've played around with the Nadex platform and traded binary options a bit, but it's just way too risky. Other than that, I've started drop shipping on eBay and that has been my most promising venture so far. Here are my downfalls with my dropshipping business:

    I'm stuck here on what software I can use to perform some basic tracking. I'm using Bing PPC and Leadpages. I thought I could use the basic tracking in Bing and the simple analytics in Leadpages. I've done a small test, running a handful of targeted ads and a few landing pages, however leadpages shows I have 0% conversions. I'm not even sure if it is tracking when someone actually clicks thru my landing page or if all 3 pages I have tested suck that bad.
