I just made a video with Windows Movie Maker, and uploaded to Youtube, only to find the audio track totally missing. Is it because I chose a popular song as the audio track (DRM/licensing issues) ?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

As far as I know, your video gets banned if you use unlicensed audio. – Michael K Mar 7 '11 at 14:36
In fact, does this qusetion belong on Webapps? – ripper234 Mar 7 '11 at 14:43

Most likely yes. You can find out yourself by visiting the list of our videos "My Uploaded Videos" on youtube (you need to be logged in) and see if there is a Note about "Matched third party content".

In fact, I got an email from Youtube about it, I just hadn't had a chance to check my mail yet :) – ripper234 Mar 7 '11 at 15:06
Hmm, I think I just upvoted this answer twice - once on Superuser, and once here. – ripper234 Mar 7 '11 at 15:13
