    Lets say I upload two videos that only show a wallpaper with my logo on it, but have different audio content, different tags, titles and video description.Will they rank bad since both have the same video content?

    I'm not a youtube expert but they can know if they are the same. I suppose they don't like that

    I doubt it will, I've taken someone else's montage and added 10 seconds to the end, and it did very well in search results and suggested videos

    AFAIK, since u are adding different content and making the video will change the video hash. it will be safe and u can bypass the Youtube filters. To be on safe side, if you are trying to rank for the same keywords make sure to change the video category.

    Hope it helps :)
