Find music

First of all, it is extremely important to decide on the song you want to use. For example, this will be: «James Brown - The Boss».

After we have selected a track, we need to check it for a license from YouTube. To do this, go to the music check page and send a request for AP analysis. Then we get the result that the song we have selected has a license.

However, it should be borne in mind that this song data will be significantly distorted from the original version. At the same time, if you are looking for a not very popular or a fairly new audio composition, then there is a chance that the searches will not return any results.

In this case, do not get upset, you just need to speed up / slow down the audio track x1.3 times in the editing software you are using. This will be enough to prevent YouTube's ContentID from recognizing the song's bitrate.
