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.
