is it ethical and legal that i embed a youtube video into a h5p interaction video ?
the 2nd question :
if embed youtube is legal , is add some interactions on it ( using interactive video) is legal ?
First rule of copyright - don't get caught
if some one earn x $ per 1 hour watching on his videos
is ebmded video counts in these watching hours ?
if it counts , and the embeded video retains you tube logo that is when click it open you tube
i think he benfits from my embed , or at least no harm
If you play the Videos direct from YouTube there can't be a problem, that is the intended use. I thought you make copies and deliver them, or remix them and deliver.
Thanks for the resource! My department (Instructional technology in a K-12 school district) has sponsored a student film festival for the last several years, and are always dealing with copyright/fair use issues (mainly for music). All resources are appreciated.
It seems that I learn/unlearn more each year. One thing that I've picked up that helps me with the general concept of fair use is that fair use is basically one's defense against a charge of copyright infringement and can really only be decided by a federal court after the possible infringement has occurred.
In the US, there are caveats to fair use that make some exceptions for educational use. If you're not making money on it and it is being used for education...etc etc, it can (not necessarily is) be okay. I don't know about other places. Of course, if it is one piece of a larger course you are charging for, the making money might get thorny.
Other considerations: if you take the video and modify it to be something else, sometimes that falls under the umbrella of derivative works and may cover you. Or it may get you in trouble. Make sure you are attributing the original owner (be careful of youtube--I was asked to put a video in training that I found at least 10 different version of on youtube...eventually I found out the owner was a TV station...none of the youtube versions I saw were posted by them. I contacted them and got permission.) Some videos have enough information about the poster that you can reach out and get permission.
I'd like to think most people aren't jerks. But reading comments on youtube (and news sites and all over the darned internet) makes me think this might be a bit optimistic. But being a part of this community makes my optimism somewhat justified.
My best understanding is that embedding is fine with YouTube. The "embeddable player" is specifically mentioned in their terms of service (excerpt below), and I figure that is the mechanism that H5P uses for embedding YouTube videos. And - as far as I can tell - the ads still play in the embedded video, so I don't think anyone is losing out on any revenue.
From YouTube's Terms of Service (https://www.youtube.com/t/terms):
You may access and use the Service as made available to you, as long as you comply with this Agreement and applicable law. You may view or listen to Content for your personal, non-commercial use. You may also show YouTube videos through the embeddable YouTube player.

- circumvent, disable, fraudulently engage with, or otherwise interfere with any part of the Service (or attempt to do any of these things), including security-related features or features that (a) prevent or restrict the copying or other use of Content or (b) limit the use of the Service or Content;
- access the Service using any automated means (such as robots, botnets...(much, much more follows...)
i make courses for pharmacist and some student may need some helpful video e.g. anatomy video before my videos , so embed video save much time than they search on youtube + the ability to mark as completed activity
"You may also show YouTube videos through the embeddable YouTube player."
is good enough ,i will put the answer in a quiz after these videos
