Hello All, I have a problem and need some assistance from others who may have dealt with this in the past.
I have a term project I'm working on that includes making a mock website designed to be a near functional travel agency. The specifics aren't really
important beyond that except to say that time ins't necessarily my friend right now. The thought to add this section was literally a last minute
thing, but should add real value to the project.
What I am adding is a foreign language section, specifically guides and assistance in basic street/tourist level
(Central/East African language). I've found what I want for the video area of the
section and it's a half dozen or so vids by the same guy that produced an entire series running dozens more than what I'm using.
College isn't like our friendly post and share here at ATS. Among other things, credit and permissions are nothing casual or taken lightly for how
it's treated. Now, under terms of Youtube, I don't believe I'm outright required, even for this, to get written permission for simple embed link
that displays his videos (4-8 mins each, if that matters). They aren't listed as Copyrighted or commercial. However, it's a professional thing to do
if nothing else.
How do I directly contact the owner of a Youtube content channel? Is the name shown basically just @gmail.com for the Email since it's all one big
happy company these days or is there another way to find that? I'm ignorant of Youtube beyond how to search for a video that looks 'neat' and hit
play to watch it. Despite motivation to make my own channel, I've never done it for a variety of reasons....so this is a big question mark for me.
I'm posting this here because I figure I'm not the only one or last to have this issue and question so an answer may well help others too. Thanks in
advance for any information in how to contact the person behind Youtube content.
