YouTube Content ID Policy Update on AudioJungle

Hi, Guys, I’ve just applied for http://adrev.net. Tell me what happens next? I just get ID for all my items, and then I have to update my portfolio? Or should I go somewhere, all the tracks? How much time is required to obtain ID numbers?
Thanks.

YouTube Content ID

Hey Everyone!

As many of you know there’s been lots of community discussion on AudioJungle recently around the use of and clearing copyright notices with YouTube’s Content ID and related partner platforms such as AdRev.

We’ve taken this opportunity to clarify our policy and information around this topic for both authors and buyers. Read more over on the Market Blog.

We’ve also published two new articles in our Help Center:

  1. For Authors: Registering Your Music With YouTube Content ID
  2. For Buyers: Buyers Guide to YouTube Content ID

We hope this will help to clear up and improve these issues for everyone involved.

Thanks!

Agree!

Hi,

I want to know: If I'll not use content ID, my AJ's account will not be blocked in future?

Content ID is an optional procedure. The main reason authors use it and AdRev is to track down illegal / un-licensed uses of their music. They then can choose to monetise the video with ads, or take other actions such as muting the content that is theirs.

Don’t worry, your account will not be affected whether you choose to use Content ID or not. That’s completely up to you.

Hey everyone! I just wanted to share a new tool I created recently that may help you update your portfolio with the YouTube Content ID attributes, and more.

Introducing the Item Updater, a Chrome extension that let's you systematically set and update the attribute values across any number of your Envato Market items, easily and automatically.

The Item Updater will also optionally use the provided attribute values and apply them as defaults on the item upload page if you choose.

It's free to install and use from the Chrome Web Store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/item-updater-for-envato-m/aphjbcgcmimimmdmmbokaedjmabgdpoj

Quick tips for adding YouTube Content ID attributes and HTML snippet

For adding the Content ID details to your items you would enter something like this:

Attribute Names

Prepend Description
YouTube Content ID Registered
YouTube Content ID Administered By

Attribute Values


Yes
AdRev

Note: The "

" after the snippet text will put a blank line between the snippet and the rest of your description for nicer spacing.

Vocals Validation

One other thing to look out for, if you have older items that haven't had the "Vocals" attribute set yet, the item edit form will not validate and will be unable to submit the update for those items. To ensure the Item Updater works here, simply do the following:

  1. Add the Vocals attribute name to the list, and enter N/A as it's corresponding value.
  2. Make sure the "Overwrite Existing Attribute Values" setting is unchecked/disabled.

This means it will select the "No Vocals" checkbox for any items where the Vocals attribute is missing/unset, while items that already have existing Vocals attribute values (e.g. Lead Vocals, Vocal Samples, etc) will remain unchanged.

Hope you find this helpful as I have!  Please let me know if you have any questions or run into any issues.  Enjoy :)

While we will always do our best to give you the opportunity to remedy the situation, failure to follow the above guidelines may result in potential disablement of your item(s), or worst-case scenario your account.

it is not optional . A force and deadlines are clearly described . These dates will soon come to an end )

In the interest of clarity and a consistent experience for AudioJungle buyers, we’d ask that you do your best to update your items within one month’s time.

Hey folks, as JamesV said, whether or not you choose to register your music with YouTube Content ID is optional and remains up to the individual authors’ choice and what they feel is best for them and their music.

Regardless of whether you choose to register your music or not, we ask that you update your item attributes as soon as possible to ensure clarity for buyers. If you do not have your music registered, simply choose “No” for the YouTube Content ID Registered attribute.

That’s all there is to it :slight_smile:

However, the procedure is not sufficiently transparent. It is not clear how to get the ID for their tracks. What to do with logos, sounds or music packs they also need an ID? I have to download all the tracks in the database?
Is it possible to download them directly with the audiojungle??? (this is the main question =)
Or I need upload from your hard drive? For old authors is really hard. I need to find items that are loaded four years ago on the hard drive and do not miss any, as well as not to load too much. Since some works have been removed from the portfolio but are on the hard disk.

What do you think , and what more attractive to buyers? Tracks with ID content or not.

It would be nice if we could add a text ( about the content ID - youtube thing ) to our files without uploading the whole zip folder.

Hey NoizMan, this shouldn’t be the case. The description/attribute edit form is completely separate from the file upload/resubmission form, so you are able to update your item’s information separately, without having to change or upload your item files.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the reply. Sorry for the confusion. I was trying to say that, I want to add a text file in the zip file explaining the process. I am editing the item descriptions as required but I don’t think that all buyers are reading the whole thing. A text file in the zip folder may take more attention. In this case I need to re-upload all my files. You may think about giving us an option to add/replace a text file seperately which will be downloaded automatically with the zip file when buyer hits the download button or Envato may add this text file ( or send an automatic e-mail ) to the items which are marked as ‘YouTube Content ID Registered’.

Ah you’re right, that would indeed require a reupload of the item.

If you do add a text/readme file to your items in this way, I recommend simply linking buyers to the YouTube Content ID Help Center article on Envato Market, in case anything should change to the process or details in the future, the information in your items will remain up-to-date and you won’t have reupload all of your files once again (e.g. if YouTube changes it’s clearance process, etc).

Thank you Eric, that’s a clever recommendation. Cheers.

Eric, Thank you for the information.

Iam unsure if I shall use adrev. What happens to the clients who bought before adrev. I cant contact them, is there some upcoming trouble for the clients.

Extremely helpful! The Awkward Ninja is grateful!

When I re-edit the text in my tracks so that they are listed for Content ID with AdRev, the actual Content ID banner doesn’t show up under my track once I return to the Item details page.

Does anyone know why? Is this a bug or does it just take time to update?

Thanks

Hey Gae,

You have to add it manually using the code snippet Eric has provided in the original post. Just copy/paste the code at the very top of your description.
