What is YouTube Content ID?

Content ID is a popular digital fingerprinting system for content creators to easily identify and manage their copyrighted content on YouTube. Videos uploaded to YouTube are compared against audio and video files registered with Content ID by content owners, looking for any matches.

Below is a quick video we prepared that discusses our service + how Content ID essentially works. You can also visit YouTube's own help center website to understand further.
