    Reposting is different from embedding.. You can't dreat another video from that original video but you can always post the embedded code somewhere.

    Doing this over and over is a great way to get your channel banned.

    Youtube (Google) is getting more and more sophisticated at determining this is being done, so it's a really bad business model to depend on this working long term, regardless of what minor things you modify when re-posting!

    Ethical and legal ways to use other peoples' videos:

    1 Embed videos on your own pages. Most Youtube users allow their videos to be embedded.

    2 Log into your Youtube account and go to the video editor. Then do a search for Creative Commons videos. There are millions of videos where the owner allows you to use them.

    3 Create playlists in your Youtube account. Every public video on Youtube can be used in playlists. Add your own short videos to the playlists as introductions and "commercials".

    Like I've posted before, with all the ways you can legitimately use Youtube videos you have to be a real klepto to resort to stealing them.

    You can embed peoples videos on your website. Do not download people's videos and upload them to You Tube as your own. That is against their rules and you can get banned.

    Best thing to do is just ask the owner if it's ok or not. I'm not sure if it's violating Intellectual property laws but still, asking the owner is the best thing to do.

    I'm curious. Is there a way to filter YouTube videos according to license? I've been Googling it but can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

    I don't steal videos but I will remix them. Same as I remix music.

    PS...Don't forget that most videos are set to allow you to embed them on your own pages. Take advantage of popular/viral videos and embed them on your own site, then promote them using social networks like twitter and facebook.

    If the videos are popular on Youtube, you may as well benefit from their popularity by putting them on your own pages, then send people to your pages instead of Youtube.

    Kurt,

    Just a question regarding your statement below. Pardon my ignorance.

    Don't forget that most videos are set to allow you to embed them on your own pages.
    How will I know if a video is set to allow me to embed it on my own website/web page? Is there something that I need to click from YouTube to find that out?

    Thanks for your answer.

    Yeah if they are not copyrighted. Respect the copyright rules and you'll be fine.

    There are some copywriting rules but if you can embed its fine. Don't you see these youtube videos all over the net? ITs because you can embed them but if you steal his video and put your name as the video creator, that's not allowed.

    The answer is very simple. Does YouTube provide the embeddable code for that video? If it does then you are allowed to embed it (YouTube won't break its own TOS). Furthermore, the owner of that video will get paid for the ads when someone watch his video on your site. If the owner doesn't want his video to be embedded to 3rd-party sites, he/her will disable such a possibility.

    Embedding is one thing (youtube allows this and video uploaders accept this as part of the YTB terms) but something different is to upload a video that's not yours to another account (youtube / metacafe / etc).

    You can but you shouldn't.

    It's that simple, got it!
