This is common with sites like Twitter, where Youtube videos are re-posted.
Even though this video is embedded onto a 3rd party site, Songtrust can still automatically claim it for you through Youtube's Content ID system. Once you add your songs with ISRC information into your account, we automatically deliver them to YouTube’s Content ID System. This enables us to automatically claim all of the monetizable videos on your behalf, without you having to provide us with the video link manually. You can be confident that videos that qualify to be monetized are being claimed on your behalf and can use the Songtrust YouTube Claims page to discover and track all successful claims.
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.
PRO TIP: If you do have a YouTube channel, we highly suggest you join the YouTube Partner Program and add your channel to your YouTube Tool. This will allow you to monetize your own uploaded content without having to go through Songtrust. We will still claim any videos on other users' channels, provided that they do not have a proper agreement with you in place.
YouTube Tool Update - 11/21/2023: Songtrust has recently removed the functionality to manually claim YouTube videos within our app. This is because when you opt into YouTube monetization, we deliver all your songs, along with ISRC information, to YouTube’s Content ID System automatically. As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the dashboard experience, we found that manually claiming videos only created duplicate records in our system. You can be confident that videos that qualify to be monetized are already being claimed on your behalf.
