Can include a video that is owned by some other people on our hub? is there any legal problems to do that?
Utube provides a "share" button for that purpose, and HP provides a capsule to use the line that Utube gives you. Yes, it is quite legal.
So you are telling me that no matter who owns a video, we can add it to our hubs
Not only can you add it, they will love you for it; more ad revenue for them.
No - not all videos are from Utube. But those that ARE from Utube can be added as you wish.
The author of the video can allow the video to be shared and also resend the right to the video whenever he chooses. You should only use videos that are relevant to the topic of your hub or risk the chance to be moderated.
So should I contact the owner of the video personally to ask whether I can share his video or not??
Not necessary but you may want to add a comment on the youtube video stating where you are sharing it. That's not necessary either but it could draw traffic from youtube.
People have the ability to share their videos or not on YouTube, so if the original uploader has sharing turned on, yes, you can share it.
Keep in mind that not all videos, even when they can be embedded in your Hubs, are appropriate for Hubs.
Make sure to keep ad-safety and the Google AdSense and HubPages policies in mind as well (adult material, strictly promotional material, and mature content for example are not allowed).
Yes, Vimeo, too.
Just be careful that you do not use a video that has copyrighted content on it that someone high-jacked from wherever. Unauthorized use of copyrighted music videos for example, will be taken down by YouTube. Then, it will no longer be available.
To answer this question, I personally believe you could share any video from youtube on your hubs, however, I think it will make more sense for the audience to have a video that is fully related to your hub..
If you use unrelated video to your hub, this will drive away your audience
Some people that have videos on you tube retain all rights and don't want them to be shared. Just like images, because videos are there doesn't mean we can use them..

In order to add your own video to a hub, do you have to join youtube first, upload your video, then put it in the hub capsule? I wish I could upload my videos like I upload my photos.

One of our goals this year is to simplify infrastructure and retire features that are seldom used. Deciding to retire something can be tough, but in the long run it is worth it. A leaner HubPages will not only perform better, but will allow us to focus our efforts on the features that are most...

I just went to edit one of my hubs and noticed that none of my embedded youtube videos are showing up. The capsule is clearly there as they still have the titles I have given them, but instead of a video there's just huge white space where the videos should be...Is anyone else experiencing this?
