We currently offer two YouTube store packages:
YouTube Music and YouTube Content ID.
YouTube Music is a streaming service similar to Spotify and Apple Music. This store package delivers "art tracks" to YouTube. Art tracks are automatically generated YouTube versions of recordings for the store package YouTube Music. An art track consists of the recording, the album cover and the metadata of the track, e.g. the title of the song and the name of the artist. When this video is played, you will be remunerated (similar to how streaming via Spotify is remunerated).
If you want to take down your music from this store, please remove YouTube Music as a store package from your release.
If you have selected YouTube Music you have the option to also choose YouTube Content ID. This means your music is registered in the YouTube Content ID database. An audio fingerprint for your release will be generated. If a creator uses your music in a video, YouTube will detect a match with the fingerprint in the database. YouTube may then show advertising before or during the video, in which case you will be paid for the play.
