Can other bloggers use my YouTube videos?

    So, I'm prepping to get my first video out--still debating between HP Videos and YouTube Videos. I know most of you say go with YouTube videos because of the exposure.

    However, if I upload a video to YouTube, can other bloggers take that video and use it on their blogs? Or, is there a way to prevent the video from being syndicated elsewhere?

    I guess I'm just thinking if I do a video say on the Top 10 Deodorants for Men, then I don't want someone else to do the same article and use my video to inflate their own rankings--sorta would like my video content to stay exclusive to my written content.

      G'day Jacob, I'm sure there is a function on YouTube that can keep your video 'Private' so the 'share' feature is disabled.  However even if you did enable 'sharing' and someone embedded the video in their blog, you would still get the view credit !
      I would also suggest that after you get some views you 'monetise' your YouTube Channel ?

      I didn't know hubpages had their own way of doing videos. Could you please point me in the right direction to find out where I can learn more about that?

      If you put videos up on YouTube, and then make them unshareable, you won't be able to embed those videos in your Hubs... which seems like it would defeat the entire point of what you are trying to do.

      If you use HubPages video option, you get a horrible Hub layout where you can't move the video from the top, and you wind up stuck with an auto-playing nightmare too. 

      My own thoughts are that whatever you are trying to do is going to take some experimentation and failure on your part before you get it to work to your satisfaction, if you even get it to work the way you are imagining.

        However, it might be worth allowing embedding for everyone. If your video is monetized to your adsense account then every time someone embeds it, your video (and the ads) will get more exposure. So they'll be helping you earn money. It will also increase your views, leading to higher rankings on youtube, and the prospect of even more people sharing it.

      To cut the story short, Use Youtube, ad adsense to the video and upload it your your hubs. Allow sharing so that you can earn more views and make some money in the process. When bloggers use your video they are not plagiarizing it but rather exposing it to potential viewers you may not otherwise get. It's a good thing.

    Post it as "unlisted" instead of private or public.  This should allow the embedding on HubPages but the video will not be searchable on YouTube or Google.  The person would have to type in the full URL in order to find it.

    I agree with Cardisa. Even if other bloggers use your YouTube video, in the end, you are just gaining free exposure and gain more traffic.
