    Eg. Your video length is 5 min of which 1 min content is from one episode of eg. america funny homemade videos which lasts for 10 min. So that 1 min contains a hosts voice(comments) and maybe his face too. And other 4 min of your video is from other sources. Is this allowed ?

    I have tried adding Tv programs in my videos for about 2 minutes or so. Never faced any issues.

    You should google about YouTube's Fair Use policy.

    Fair use, and such, depends on the intent and structure. Is the remaining 4 min your own work dependant on the 1 min as a reference? Otherwise most likely a copyright infringement.

    If it is just a compilation of clips you dont have the copyright to, it is also copyright infringement.
