    To make my hubs more interesting sometimes I depend on video capsules.  The videos are from YouTube.  Is it legal to use videos from YouTube? If not,  what is the best method.  Creating our own videos is not practical all time. So I need a convincing answer.  Please help.

      Your most convincing answer is direct from the HubPages team itself, in the Learning Center, in the article on How to Create a Hub Using the HubTool. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/usin … d_22478583

      The opening of the section on how to use the video capsule reads like this:
      How to Use the Video Capsule

      The Video Capsule allows you to embed online video content directly into your Hub. The Video Capsule supports video from BlipTV, Metacafe, Vimeo, and YouTube.

      The general guideline on rights for videos is that any video from YouTube that can be embedded is acceptable on HubPages, as long as it is not watermarked (that is, it does not show text or a symbol identifying the creator.) The video should also be high quality and not grainy or offensive, etc. (Same rules as for photos on that point.)

      Be aware that because something is on YouTube, doesn't necessarily mean that the person who posted it is actually the rights holder for the video.

      It is also possible that YouTube videos have no legal issues, but a Hub could be moderated if the YouTube video was adult, mature, overly promotional, etc.

    I face the same problems. In my recipe hubs, i use my videos only .But it is not possible for me while preparing non-recipe hubs to use my own videos so I prefer Youtube videos only. I think using them is legal.

    Videos from YouTube are usually OK.  Haven't had any problems here, but on another site I use embed codes instead of links, and I get the message "this video is not available for embedding" if I try to load something that is not available for sharing.  For HubPages, I just use the "video" capsule and enter the link.  I think there is an option to enter embed codes instead of links in the capsule, but I have never used it.

    Yes it's okay to use videos from YouTube. I read it in a forum here somewhere. We can put YouTube videos in our hubs because they are embedded and they link back to YouTube. Also, if a video can't be embedded, then that means you shouldn't use the video. I also have videos from YouTube in a lot of my hubs.

    sunilkunnoth2012, Thanks for raising this issue. I had some doubts which have been cleared largely by the replies of our fellow Hubbers.

    I am also planning to put some video capsules on my next hub, but I'm quite hesistant to do it. I'm afraid of the legal issues I might encounter if I just use videos from youtube. Well, I'm so thankful that this issue is raised in this forum, I've learned so many things from other hubbers.
    Is it okay to ask a question here? Do we have to put some attribution on the videos, the same thing we usually do with the photos or images?

    I've used dozens of YouTube videos on my hubs and never had an issue with any of them, aside from occasionally having to replace a "bad link" when a video is moved or taken off of YouTube.

    Since I write mainly about music and movies, I use music videos and movie trailers from the appropriate artists/films. I try my best to use video clips from an "official" YouTube channel (i.e. VEVO, the movie studio's YT channel, etc.)

    I don't think "attribution" is necessary, because the YouTube logo appears on the progress bar at the bottom of most, if not all, clips from them so it should be obvious to readers that the video comes from YouTube.

    Hope that helps!

    Thank you FatFreddysCat for making this clear! Your reply is very helpful to all hubbers who have the same issue.
