Hello readers!

It's Christmas.

Merry Christmas to all of you.

What do you think I have spent my day doing on this special day?

That's right: Disputing copyright claims on my tiny YouTube channel and creating a new workout music playlist -- which can be also used as gaming music. Well, at least I claim that it can also be used as gaming music, because I want more people to listen to it so that FINALLY I might end up reaching monetization for my YouTube channel in this millennium -- HOPEFULLY...

Ok, to address the elephant in the room:

Why don't I have anything better to do on Christmas day?

I kind of caught a mild cold and don't want to infect anybody else -- even though it is probably nothing at all, but hey, this year was crazy anyway. So spending Christmas alone seems appropriate... 😅🙈

For obvious reasons, I have not really put myself into a Christmas mood and worked on some workout music instead. While doing that I discovered that I received a couple of copyright claims on my YouTube channel for songs which are supposed to be "free to use".

"Free to use" means that you can download the music and use it in your YouTube videos. You can even receive ad revenue from YouTube if your channel qualifies for that.

What do you need to receive a fraction of the ad revenue that YouTube makes with your content?

You need 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours within the last 12 months before you earn your first cent.

Let's check how close my channel is to that goal after half a year.

Oh...

Let's move along and talk about the reason why I received copyright strikes even though the music I used is "free to use".

The reason is that some shady individuals try to claim that they own songs which are declared "free to use" and then they try to receive the monetization from YouTube videos that use these songs. Sometimes, these individuals even try to take the ad revenue from videos which the original song creators uploaded...

To circumvent such shady actions, more and more publishers of free music are enforcing copyright claims on all videos that use such songs. The reason is that the shady people cannot do that if the legitimate people do it first. And the legitimate people give you instructions on how to dispute these copyright claims. If you follow their instructions, the copyright claims should be removed within two days.

Here is an example for such instructions taken from the description of a song on YouTube. (I added the red frame to draw your attention to the relevant section.)

This is the source of the screenshot.

To conclude, I am confident that the copyright claims which I received will be removed. However, it was annoying to dispute them as there are several steps necessary to do it. And I was not entirely sure which option to select. And I had to do it for each and every video individually -- even if it is about the same song. And I had to do it multiple times per video if it is about two different songs within the same video... This can be quite time-consuming...

And now on to the new music

As I create playlists with workout music containing "free to use" music, I do listen to a lot of music. And oftentimes I find myself thinking "this song is great, but I wish it was a bit faster". Or slower. Or longer. Or shorter. Or had some more bass.

That's why I learned some basic audio editing skills. And that's what I did here: I took a song that was already great and sped it up. Quite a bit, actually. About 15% to be more specific. Give it a good listen and let me know what you think. I guarantee you will be within the first 100 people in the history of the world who listens to this song:

Did you like it? Well, keep in mind that it's a workout motivation song. It's not very Christmas-y? Yes, I know... I told you why! 😬

Do you prefer my version to the original version?

Here is the original version of the song:

It's a great song, but it's so slow that you might fall asleep, right? 😅

Using noise.cash to promote my YouTube video

Have you heard of noise.cash? Probably yes. There is a banner right now on top of this website. I noticed it right after I uploaded the above song to YouTube. And being a self-proclaimed "marketing genius", I was probably the first person to use noise.cash to promote views to a YouTube video ever. Here is my post:

Was I successful?

Well, two people responded to my tweet -- eh, I mean to my noise -- how should we call these texts we post on noise.cash? Has anybody figured that out yet?

And one hour after my post, my YouTube video has received a whopping 9 views! At least two of those views was I myself. And depending on how the views are counted, I might have caused more views while refreshing the website or by navigating to the video again in order to copy the link to it while writing this article...

So, the answer is a conclusive "no". I was not very successful at promoting my video on noise.cash. However, I will try pushing my content again on that platform. Let's see how it will develop.

As of right now, the posts are only visible for a couple of minutes on noise.cash and then they are buried by the noise of others pretty quickly...

Comments?

Did you like the song I uploaded? Did you prefer the fast version to the slow original one?

Are you on noise.cash already? Have you received any tips there yet?

I watched the video but for just a few seconds.. Now, i will try to finish the entire video so you will have more watch hours.. And will also subscribe on your channel.. Could you also do the same please.. Not doing any videos, though, but just in case I might upgrade my YT channel, at least I have enough subscribers when that time comes.. Anyway, i will leave a comment there so you know it's me.

I think I already have 500 but I will try to make more videos in the future.. Hehe.. I just don't know how to edit.. Lol.

Ah yes, it took me some time to figure that one out, too. I do use VSDC video editor. It is quite powerful and it has lots of features. You can use most of them in the free version and they have lots of tutorials on YouTube.

There is also DaVinci Resolve which is supposed to be even better and it is also free. However, my laptop is too slow to use that software.

Yay! Thank you for sharing. I will try that once I have enough time to make some videos. Although I don't even know what videos to make as I don't think I can do vlogging. Hehe. Thanks again. 😉

You're very welcome. I believe the start will be quite slow and cumbersome. But once you learn a few tricks in the video editor, it will also be fun. If your laptop is not as slow as mine. 😅🙈

Or if your videos are not as long as some of mine. 😁
