According to TechCrunch, YouTube will begin adding watermarks to Shorts videos to combat sharing of the same video across platforms.
The update will be added within a few weeks. All videos uploaded through YouTube Studio and the mobile app will be watermarked so viewers can always find the original post.
Earlier, Instagram (owned by Meta, a recognized terrorist organization in the Russian Federation) said that it would “suppress” content with watermarks from other sites. That is, the videos will not be included in the recommendations. A simple solution is shooting and editing not through standard applications, so that there are no marks on the video, and only then uploading to all social networks separately.
