What is Content ID?2018-09-11T10:43:31+00:00

Content ID is YouTube’s unique software system that was built to help content owners find copies of their work on youtube.

When the system detects a match between the audio or visual reference files and a video on YouTube, the content owner has three options. They can block the video that matched their content.

Is there a method to pre-clear a video before it goes live, or YouTube channel entirely?2018-09-15T17:17:26+00:00

Yes, both can be done!

Pre-clearing a video

When you are uploading a video on YouTube, set it as “Unlisted.” When you choose this option, the video will be uploaded as unlisted to your channel and will not be “live” for your subscribers to see. By refreshing the video manager page, the copyright notice will appear next to your unlisted video. Follow the instructions above on how to eliminate the “matched third party content,” and wait for the notice to disappear from your video and then switch the video from “Unlisted” to “Public.” Now you can collect monetized views from the beginning without any interruption.

Pre-clearing your entire YouTube channel

If you have licensed at least five of LoopWaves’s songs previously you are eligible to have your entire channel white-listed from Content ID. Whitelisting a channel will prevent any further copyright notices from appearing on future videos that contain LoopWaves’s music. Please complete this form if you meet the minimum five song criteria and would like to whitelist your entire YouTube channel.

Please Note: If you have uncleared copyright notices on your channel, Occasionally whitelisting may not be possible. These notices must be individually cleared first before the channel can be whitelisted.
