Upload old VHS recordings to YouTube= Profit??

I have crates full of old VHS tapes with old shows from the 90s and porn and music videos. I'm going to buy a connecter to transfer all of these VHS recordings on to my laptop. I was thinking of uploading all the good stuff to YouTube. Anyone try this? I know there may be copyright issues with certain things so I may have to figure out a way around that. 

Good luck!

I remember sneaking thur the curtain and into the porn room when I was a kid...it was heaven

Yeah not only was their porn behind the curtain at my old store but also Faces of Death videos.

LMAO! in our town's video store they had the porn vids in separate room called the "saloon" kinda western style, you had to walk through the swinging saloon doors to get back there.

I would check if they are already on utube and if not, dont try to use ads or claim copyright and maybe they will leave you alone

I was going to do this with cassettes and ripped a couple. As soon as I uploaded them I realized they were on YouTube and in better quality. That stopped my cassette ripping dreams. Even rare music I found in great quality.

I've done that with some VHS tapes. Copy write can be a problem. Sometimes it's allowed as long as you let an ad banner be at the bottom of the video. Sometimes there's a copy write infridgment and it won't play. If that happens youtube gives you a warning. If it happens like 3 times you get frozen and cant upload anything. Ha. I had an old tape of me breaking wood and I had a cassette playing.There was a copy write on the song and youtube wouldn't upload the video..MY OWN PERSONAL VIDEO!! If it's found you're making money from a movie you can get in trouble, and sometimes the maker of the movie/karate video/bjj toutorial doesn't have to money/time or effort to tell you to stop.
