    I am trying to use the old method monetizing security camera and dash cam videos on YouTube. I usually download compilation videos and reupload them to YouTube. The problem is YouTube has now reviewed the last 4 videos that I have uploaded and they are asking me for a proof of commercial use. Is it because they match my video to a previous video on YouTube? I thought when they match your video they usually say: "your video has been matched with another video on YouTube" Am I just unlucky for getting so many reviews or is it normal now for YouTube to review every single video?

    What can I do to change this? Would editing the video and changing the pitch help?

    My account is more than two years old BTW.

    Have you tried adding anything at the beginning/end of the video to change the length?

    Yes I did. It still asks me for proof of commercial use.

    Do you download existing videos on YouTube and reupload them to YouTube without any changes? or do you get the videos from somewhere else?

    Yes, I also think the reason you are not able to monetize those videos is the fact that they have been uploaded already. Lately I have been facing the same issue with couple of videos I uploaded and I also have no idea what to do with those videos for now.
