    Hello, so I am starting a YouTube channel where I will want to upload gameplay of video games from Nintendo such as Wii U games and soon the Switch.

    Is there a format you recommend me to follow that I should put in the description to make sure the video doesn't get claimed?

    On my channel I will just upload gameplay without commentary or web cam.



    (Link of the youtube channel is in the signature if you want to check it out. No videos yet.)

    Even under Fair Use, chances are Nintendo will still attack your video. Nintendo is extremely anti-internet and unless they give the option to stream, their stuff is basically "off limits."

    I get copyright claims all the time. I don't care really, because I do YouTube as a hobby and i'm not monetizing them.

    You just don't want to get a copyright strike.

    A way to completely avoid copyright claims by Nintendo is to sign up to Nintendo's Creator Program. But they will take a cut off your revenue.

    Do it the way Jim Sterling does: At the end of the video, put random crap from random companies, like Square Enix, Sega, Konami and whatnot.
    At least that way nobody wins.

    Nintendo will bend you over no matter what you do.
    If you're looking to make any sort of money, you can't. They take it. Well, most of it.

    If you don't care about revenue then I don't think it matters. They just copyright claim the video and all revenue goes to them, so if you're making squat it doesn't matter.

    You'd think it would be smarter to facilitate video streaming. More people see your games, more people buy them. There will be so many videos that only the special ones get loads of views, so that encourages people to make better videos, showcasing Nintendo products nicely.

    false DMCAs (meaning, folks claiming ownership of some material in your video and asking youtube to pull the video) are a rampant part of the youtube environment at the moment. Even if 100% of your video was shot by yourself, expect the more popular you become the more likely someone is to file a DMCA to get your video pulled. It's not just let's play videos, it's becoming a larger and larger part of being on youtube (especially when monetizing).

    There's not much you can do. But it can sometimes help in getting your video reinstated if you make sure all your content is yours, and to place one of those "this video's content falls within fair use, all video game characters, etc, belong to their respect copyright owners, etc, etc" spoilers before each video for 10 seconds or so.

    Plus make backups of your videos and store them on external media for the eventual take-down of a video.
