Use search tools to find interesting content

After searching on YouTube, you’ll see a results page with relevant videos, playlists and channels. Use filtering and sorting to quickly find whatever you're looking for.

  • Filter your results. Use filters to show only the most recent videos, videos of a certain length, videos uploaded in HD and more.
  • Sort your results. Sort those results by relevancy, views, recency or rating to make searching faster and more effective.

Re-broadcasting videos

Some guidelines for incorporating YouTube content are below:

  • Credit the content owner. Though YouTube has a license to distribute the video, it's the YouTube user who owns the content. We encourage you to reach out to users directly when you find video you'd like to use, and to provide attribution by displaying the username or the real name of the individual, if you've obtained it.
  • Credit YouTube in your re-broadcast of the video. When you show a YouTube video on television, please include on-screen and verbal attribution.
  • Contacting a YouTube user. Clicking on a YouTube username will take you to the user's channel, where you can see what personal information he or she has shared (name, web site, location, etc.). From here, you can use YouTube's on-site messaging system to contact the user. First, you must be logged into your own YouTube account. Then, click on the username of the individual you'd like to reach out to and select "Send Message."
