I hear this a lot when I am adding for constructive criticism on my Hubs. I see a LOT of videos from YouTube and the like on here, and I've read the service terms. Embedding YouTube videos that aren't made by you or that you have explicit permission to use is against the EULA.
How do people produce their own videos here?
That's interesting,can you give us a link to this information? I agree that it's illegal to copy a photo you don't own, but (I thought) the whole point of the Youtube embedding method is that we're not copying them - we're embedding them,which means the link leads back to the Youtube original. That can only benefit the clip owner.
If you know different, I'd love to know.
i think embedding video is not break term and rule

That's a good question! I'd be interested to know that too.
I haven't added videos yet because of these kinds of concerns.
(For similar reasons, I've mostly used my own photos and illustrations in my hubs... Guess I'll start creating my videos in the future.)
I believe we are allowed to embed videos from YouTube not made by us. Lately I've taken to informing the person who posted the video on YouTube that I have embedded it. I figure it's a good way to get more traffic for my hub.
You can also make your own videos, and I've done that as well.
If I'm not mistaken, you have the option to disable embedding when you upload a video. By not exercising that option, you are granting permission to embed.
Great, but how can you be sure that whoever posted the video on YouTube didn't just copy that video from someone else?
You can't, but that's not your problem. Personally I wouldn't use a video which I thought was obviously ripped off from somewhere else.
The point is that if you watch the clip all the way to the end, you'll see you get a chance to watch it again on Youtube. So the link to the source is always there.

Is anyone making their own videos for hubs?I am almost done making my first one from scratch. I was wondering if other people have ventured down this road. It is pretty time consuming.

I am absolutely distraught. Some of my best hubs contain youtube videos. I have found that anyone logged into hubpages can see my videos without any problem. Today my Dad happened to be looking at my hubs and said...
