Content and Rights Administration Feed

The YouTube XML format is being replaced by DDEX (music only) and CSV templates (all industries). YouTube strongly discourages any new implementations of the YouTube XML format. This page should be used solely as reference material for existing implementations. Visit Using the YouTube DDEX feed for more information about the new format.

The Content and Rights Administration Feed is an XML format for delivering content to YouTube and enrolling that content in the YouTube rights management system. You create XML files that define assets and provide YouTube with metadata, ownership information, and monetization policies for those assets. You can also create publicly viewable YouTube videos for the assets.

The articles below describe how to use the Content and Rights Administration Feed format.
