I have downloaded a creative common video. I want to re upload it to my channel. But there are so many links in the description of the original video. Should I add those links to re uploaded video? Or can i upload with my links?

Totally incorrect when it's a creative commons video. If you go to a certain section of YouTube their is videos users can upload as creative commons and allow you to reuse them.

Not incorrect at all.
To use such videos, you need to actually contact the uploader and get them to give you a copy from their hard disk. YouTube doesn't give a facility for anyone to download videos they don't own unless it is on the mobile app; and that is for offline viewing only.

The portion of my post in parentheses was a direct paste from the YouTube Terms of Service @offbeatbryce; so are you saying that YouTube itself is lying? And you actually can be terminated for using a third party app to download videos from YouTube.

Since you don't want to believe me, I invite you to go to the current incarnation of the YouTube Support Forum, found at:


and ask the same question there.

It’s in the description box. The person puts one in the description but it’s a Creative Commons video.
