    Working on some in-depth music vid reviews, was wondering if it would be against adsense to embed music vids from authorized places like MTV, VEVO, Yahoo, or perhaps the artist's website?

    HP video capsules are configured to use videos from BlipTV, Metacafe, Revver, Vimeo, Yahoo! Videos, and YouTube.

    from any other location won't work. you just have to make sure the videos can be embedded off the original site.

      ok i see, well VEVO is on youtube anyway, but i want to confirm that these sources are appropriate as far as google adsense policy goes. For instance, if im doing a music vid review and want to embed the video along with it, wouldn't it be more appropriate for me to embed it from an "official" source like VEVO or Yahoo! since the record companies obviously approve of them using it to begin with? As opposed to some random person who recorded the video off of their TV and put it up on Youtube without permission from the record label?

      Like all the videos on Yahoo! are there because Yahoo! got permission from the companies to put them there and allow other ppl to embed it right? So if I embed from Yahoo! I'm assuming it will be okay with adsense and I won't get into any kind of copyright related trouble?

    As for copyright, we have been down this road before on the forums: The answer is that as long as you are embedding material that is published on YouTube, you can do so in good faith and leave it to YouTube to take care of any copyright infringement.

    As for AdSense, that is not an issue of who uploaded the videos, but more an issue of the contents themselves. Sure, a video could violate AdSense content guidelines, regardless of its source.

      Website Examiner,

      I see where you're coming from. So it mostly revolves around how "explicit", so to speak, the content of the video itself is. Well, in that case, I guess since most commercial music vids have censored lyrics and watered down soft-core porn (if you wanna call it that), I guess I'm okay in that department.
