    Yeah, the hard thing it will be to rank them as well, so that somebody watches them...

    Beware with this because I took a video that supposed to be CC and YT deleted it today because copyright issues. I believe there was a second uploader in the middle.

    Home Page:
    1. Download several CC videos
    2. Save (edit) the best parts (highlights) from these videos
    3. Combine the highlights into one cool video. Put a CTA slide at the beginning and end of your new vid.
    4. Do a voice-over or use YT's free music with the vid.
    5. Write a keyword rich description (at least 300 words)
    6. Use top keywords (related to the video) as "tags" - 10 to 20

    You should now have a unique video that won't get removed and can be monetized with Adsense.
    Do your usual video promotions (facebook, twitter, blog post embeds, etc)

    Once you have traffic coming to your video, repeat the process.

    All basic info, but I've done this and my videos created from CC videos have been up for 2 to 3 years without being flagged or removed.

    pretty much this and add your own twists, i generally use paid music for my videos + you can add subtitles for other languages if that suits your niche
