How does youtube know that there's music in a video that I upload? I uploaded a video and the audio was muted as it contained music. How do their computers tell the difference between copyright music and just sound? Interesting...

As it stands, I can't put my video on, and their audioswap doesn't work the way I want it to nor does it even have the music that I want!

Re: Youtueb

when you upload a video, it's being compared to the approved copyright videos, like music videos from the record company. if the 2 audio tracks are exactly the same, yours is muted. or at least i'm pretty sure that's how it works

Re: Youtueb

all they need to do is analyze the wave form in your video file and match to anything they have on their database and if there is a match, then bingo your audio is flagged...
