Spreading the love to your collaborators
Wednesday, October 29, 2014
So many of you have turned the video description into your collaborator credit reel, sharing the love of all the other creators that helped make your video awesome. The shout-out is cool, but what if that shout-out was a direct link to your collaborator’s channel and made it easy for new fans to subscribe?
At VidCon, we told you how we’re working on areas like this to help you build fan bases and make even better videos, one of the ways being
Creator Credits. These allow you to recognize contributions and collaborators on your YouTube videos, and today, we're expanding this feature to all channels with at least 10,000 subscribers.
With Creator Credits, you’ll have the ability to feature collaborators -- such as your co-star, your video editor, or your boom mic operator -- on your video page. There are dozens of roles to choose from, and you can feature as many contributors as you like. These credits link back to collaborators’ channels and have a one-click subscribe option to both channels.
Adding Creator Credits to a video is easy. When editing your video title, description, and other details, you’ll find a Video Credits section where you can select the roles of your collaborators and include their channels. Creator Credits will appear below your video’s description after clicking “Show more.” Visit our
to learn more.
Don’t have 10,000 subscribers? We're working to make this feature available to more of you soon.

Brazilians form one of the world’s most vibrant YouTube communities. They produce content for passionate audiences in a country where online consumption is amongst the highest in the world. To support this incredible community of YouTube creators and foster the next generation of Brazilian talent, the YouTube Space team has partnered with

. Since the first Space was launched in 2012, more than 30,000 people around the world have attended over 450 workshops and over 6,000 videos have been created; garnering over 750 million views.
Like all of our production facilities,
YouTube Space @ Instituto Criar

: From training programs and workshops to master classes, there are opportunities to get hands-on experience from industry leaders, and learn to use high end production equipment, production techniques, and YouTube best practices.
