Youtube is filled with weird and interesting videos, whether to teach you something or to freak you out. What’s important to keep in mind is that you can share those videos as long as you mind the copyright. For example, you can download Youtube videos, but when you upload them on Facebook, you will receive a warning from Facebook regarding the copyright of the song or the video you are trying to upload. In that case, Facebook will automatically delete your video/song. To avoid that, there are 2 tricks you should know regarding copyrighted videos or songs.

Here are 2 ways in which you can share Youtube videos without worrying about copyright.

1. Embedding videos

You can embed any creepy or funny Youtube video you found on your blog, website or social media.
