YouTube has recently announced plans to expand Shorts remixing features to music video content. Music video remix will be a great way for artists to connect with new potential fans, and will also offer current fans new ways to engage with their music videos. Continue reading for more details.
Starting in May, YouTube users will begin to get access to remix eligible artist music videos. This will be an ongoing roll out, with it eventually becoming available to all users on YouTube globally. If you are an artist, music videos on your official artist page (OAC), including any VEVO videos, will be available for users to start remixing if those music videos meet certain eligibility requirements. If you are a Quarterlab client, please reach out to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to ensure your music videos will be eligible.
There will be a few different ways users can remix music video content. These include: Green Screen, Cut, and Audio remixing. You can see more about using Green Screen here and in the screenshots below:
