Don’t lose sleep worrying about music licensing. Envato Elements’ music tracks are 100% creator safe so YouTubers can use them with confidence.
To get paid on YouTube, you’ll need to pay attention to your watch hours, rather than video views. Once you’ve hit 4,000 watch hours (and 1,000 subscribers), you’ll be eligible to join the YouTube Partner Program to start monetizing your channel.
Uploading to YouTube is simple—in fact, you can actually upload multiple videos at a time if necessary. To upload a video, click on the camera icon at the top right of your browser and select Upload Video. Select your video file(s) or drag and drop onto the window and add your video to start the upload process.
While you’re waiting, fill in the required details, add a video title description, and custom thumbnail and save your video to the required playlist. Make sure your video is set to Public if you’re looking to grow your audience. Once your upload is complete, you’ll receive a notification with a link to your published video.
YouTube has strict rules around music usage. If you’re planning on using copyrighted music, you will need to have permission from the original creator otherwise you may receive a copyright notice and have your video removed from YouTube.
To avoid this situation, many YouTubers rely on royalty-free music tracks, like those available in the Envato Elements library. All audio downloads from Envato Elements come with a license certificate, which means that should a copyright claim arise on any of your videos, you can simply upload the certificate and remove the notice immediately.
