YouTube Creators: I found some content, can I use it in my video?

Short answer: usually no, not without explicit permission

Sometimes you hear a song that would be the perfect background for your video. Or see an image that would fit right into the slideshow you are creating. Or you find a video clip that would be hilarious to incorporate into your comedy routine.

+Leo Wattenberg has created a great overview on using 3rd party content, the different creative common licenses and copyright on YouTube. It was originally posted in the YouTube Creators forum, where you can comment on it directly:

Be sure to check out the spreadsheet he created of online sources of music you can use in your videos:  http://goo.gl/QNlk6z

Read the licenses carefully and use your common sense!

The Complete Beginner's Guide to SlideShare
A quick and effective blueprint for building a beautiful, viral presentation

The five principles of good SlideShare design:

1. Your message: Focused, clear and concise
2. Keep it simple: The average Slideshare deck is 14 slides
3. Cool fonts: Look beyond the basics
4. Stunning images
5. Consistent color palette

"The most important rule of SlideShare: If your presentations aren’t good enough, you won’t get anything from SlideShare." - Mauro D'Andrea

This quote comes from blogger and presenter Mauro D’Andrea who put together a huge resource of SlideShare information for the KISSmetrics blog. D’Andrea’s biggest takeaway from the post: Design a great presentation.

I might amend that bit of advice just a tad. I’m not sure I was well equipped or capable of building a great presentation on my own, yet we still saw good results. So how about: Design a good-to-great presentation. It doesn’t have to be Picasso; it should be better than elementary.

To find out how we create SlideShares quickly and effectively, click over to read the full post on the Buffer blog. We've got 5 more tips for quick creating and awesome sharing.
