How Can I Make the Most out of Songtrust's YouTube Tool?

Using the Youtube Tool

Songtrust delivers all of your songs with ISRC information to YouTube’s Content ID System so nearly all of your monetizable videos will automatically be claimed on your behalf, without you having to send us the link of the video. 

Our YouTube Tool works as a backup to the automated Content ID system, and allows clients to submit links to Youtube videos that may not have been automatically claimed through Content ID, such as videos of live sets and cover versions.

If you know of a specific video you want to claim, you can submit the link in the "Manual Claims" tab. After you submit the video link via the Manual Claims tab, the video goes into a queue to be reviewed and claimed by our team.

Please note that we can not monetize videos that do not meet YouTube's new eligibility requirements (as of February 20, 2018). In order for us to place ads on and monetize a video, the video must be on a channel that has at least 1,000 subscribers, 4,000 hours of watch time over the past 12 months, live in a country/region where the YouTube Partner Program is available, and have a linked Adsense account.
