    Nope. Not legally and without paying for a license. But folks just do and profit for as long as possible before the DMCA hammer.

    No even if you mention the source in the video ? :)
    Because I see lots of this car crash compilation and those guys are banking real hard, there are years old videos.

    You can if they are in public domain or under certain type of creative commons license.

    Sure. Why not? Everyone else is doing it. Also theres a lot of things that people say you can't or shouldn't do but somehow it gets done anyway. When it comes to online marketing I've been broke every rule in the book and I don't feel guilty about it as long as I'm not hurting anyone.

    You can, easily, but you have to be really careful with your videos. Before a year or so, you would receive a copyright strike If you use someone else's video, but those days are gone. Now they just strike you with a 'matched thid party content' and simply take away your money.

    It is still legally a copyright violation.

    i have seen many youtube channels having compilation videos and they make compilations by using someone else's videos. But they still have verification tick mark on their Channels. How is this possible?

    They have good video editing skill with high risk on those video. but i think at the end they face copyright claim.

    I'm no expert but I think you can't. You can try, but you may risk getting copyright claims as said above.

    General saying: no, because it´s copyright infringement. But there is one exception: fair use. But I doubt that you want to make a "real fair use" video.

    The issue so many people have on this forum I'm noticing is that they want to do everything the easy route... You are free to use other people's content, but you'll run into a brick wall in all likelihood eventually.

    It all depends on the content.
    I see a fuck ton of vine compilations all the time.
    Most of those people are just happy to get recognition.

    You can't use just any videos. If its under creative commons or public domain you can.
