Credits on your videos

Credits provide you with the ability to tag the collaborators of your videos and link to each collaborator’s channel from your video watch page. Highlight your video stars, writers or other collaborators. Give credit to your video editors or the musician who composed your score!

Credits are currently available to channels with at least 5,000 subscribers. Once applied to a video and approved by the creator who has been credited, credits will appear below the description of your video. You’ll need to click Show more to reveal the credits.

Hover over a credit to learn a bit more about the channel which has been credited or click on the credit to visit that channel.

View comments

Comments you care about show first. You’ll see comments at the top of the list from people in your Google+ Circles, from creators, and from popular personalities. Comments with many likes and replies will rank highly as well.

Sort comments. You can choose to see the most recent comments instead. Replies are threaded so you can easily follow conversations.

Comments from more places. Google+ posts that link to videos or channels will also appear as comments on YouTube, marked “via Google+”.

Comment moderation. You can report any comment for spam or abuse. If you’re a creator, you can also use comment moderation tools for comments on your videos or your channels.

YouTube apps for Android and iOS don’t yet support all the features of the new comment system. Features that don’t yet work include:

  • On Android:
    • Sort by most recent comments
  • On iOS and Android:
    • “Via Google+” label

We’re working on updating the apps. In the meantime, you can sign in to the YouTube mobile website from your device’s browser to use these features.

Creator credits

Add credits to your videos

If you have at least 5,000 subscribers, you’ll have access to Credits, which you can use to highlight the contributions of your collaborators with a credit that appears on your video below the description.

To add credits to your videos:

  1. Open the video you’d like to edit
  2. On the basic info tab, scroll down to the “Video Credits” section
  3. Add a role and identify the collaborator by typing in their YouTube username or by adding the channel URL
  4. When your changes are complete, click Save changes.


Credits will appear below your video description once your video has been set to “public” or “unlisted” status and the creators that you have credited have approved your credits. We will not display credits on private videos.

Review your credits

The Credits queue located under Community > Credits in your Creator Studio allows you to review the videos in which you’ve been credited.

If you are credited, this information will appear on the video watch page and you will be notified that you’ve been credited in a video. For each credit that you receive, the queue will display:

  • The person who credited you
  • What role you were credited with
  • Video you were credited in
  • Date and time you were credited

If you choose to review all credits before they are public (you can control this preference in your Community settings), credits will appear in the Pending tab until you choose to accept or reject them.

From this page, you may choose to add the videos you’ve been credited in to a playlist once you’ve approved the credits, remove credits that have been applied to you (which will also remove them from the uploaders video), or flag a credit as spam.

$0.45 USD - $4.00 USD

Note: The accepted formula that Auxiliary Mode Inc. uses to calculate the CPM range is $0.45 USD - $25.00 USD.

The range fluctuates this much because many factors come into play when calculating a CPM. Quality of traffic, source country, niche type of video, price of specific ads, adblock, the actual click rate, watch time and etc.

Cost per thousand (CPM) is a marketing term used to denote the price of 1,000 advertisement impressions on one webpage. If a website publisher charges $2.00CPM, that means an advertiser must pay $2.00 for every 1,000 impressions of its ad. The "M" in CPM represents the Roman numeral for 1,000.
