    I am quite new to Youtube marketing so some insight would be helpful. My question is, how do I make a downloaded video unique? Im guessing that adding a few blank seconds to the video will do it? But the problem is that I have thousands of videos so to do this it will take ages to process. There must be an easier way to make them unique?

    Share your skills guys, and I will share mines :)

    I guess changing the title is one thing :)
    How about creating an intro part and then conducting automated merging?

    YouToob Uniquefy Tool. It doesn't affect ANYTHING on the video itself.

    Im not too sure about that. Im trying to find the quickest way to make them unique. To process thousands of files like this will take ages.

    Define Soundtrack? So tags and title is obvious, but Im sure Youtube have a good system to detect copies further. Im guessing the watermark changes the filesize which is good, and the soundtrack changes the audio: but all of this is still heavy video processing.
    Dude WHERE can I find this lovely tool? I made a google search and it gave me nothing.

    1) Add watermark.
    2) Add an ad that's a few seconds long to the start / end. You can make a nice one in, say, iMovie, or you can just use a jpeg ad and add some music.
    3) Encode to a different format and then encode back again to mp4, the format Youtube prefers you to use when you upload.

    I would highly recommend learning to use the free and open source encoding software ffmpeg, which can do all of this from the command line (so is great for batch encoding) and is very robust. It's used by a number of professional studios and is known as one of the fastest encoders that doesn't cost thousands of dollars.

    Also, no matter what you do, you can't get around people (ie. your competitors) manually flagging you.

    Thanks for the reply Autumn. So just to clearify, the only way in which these videos becomes unique and doesnt get hidden in the search results is by watermarking them and changing the length of the video by adding something at the beginning and end?

    All of this sounds like a pain in the ass to do to this many videos manually. I guess batching is the way to go. So is there any way that you can provide us with a guide of how to do that? For dummies? :p

    There`s easier way: you don`t need to add part of a video, just cut some frames from it. That takes much less time.


    There`s another tool on that site that rotates video but I suppose that will be much slower (haven`t try it myself), but you get absolutely unique video.

    Only problem with ffmpeg is that it has lost watermarking ability on certain distributions of linux.

    I'm trying to create a setup like Autumn suggested last week, but without using the youtube api. My goal is 1000 videos/ day :)

    If you compile the latest version from subversion it has watermarking again, the syntax is a little different though. There are a few tutorials on google about it.

    Yea I went on the dvd video soft website but there are loads of tools there. Which one(s) did you refer to please? For the rotate solution, im guessing you ment "free video flip and rotate" but for the frame cutting, are you thinking a video editing software like after effects or is there a simple and quick editiing app out there that you can bulk loads of videos in one go?
