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

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.
