    Can you use any youtube video in a hub?

    Are you allowed to use any youtube video in your hub or do you have to get permission from the owner of the video?

    When using a youtube video in your hub, you are also getting the owner of the video more views and recognition so i cant see why there would be a problem.

    If the uploader of the YouTube video has allowed embedding then you can safely assume you can embed the video in your hub. Also, in any case, it's also beneficial for the uploader as it attracts more viewers to good video content.

    If there are copyright restrictions the video won't play. So after uploading the video and publishing the article, it is a good idea to check playback. Sometimes the link is broken due to copyright.  You can also check for the copyright logo, that is a good indicator that it is not allowed.
    Otherwise, I agree with what the others have said, it gives the owner exposure so it is ok.

    Yes you can. As others have previously stated it provides greater exposure for the person who uploaded the video to youtube. I used a youtube video in one of my hubs, and it was the perfect compliment to what I wrote about.

    I agree with Simeonvisser but something no one has mentioned yet is that you also need to make sure the video content complies with Hubpages rules and guidelines. For instance, some videos have nudity so that wouldn't be a good thing to add here.
