Migrating videos to and from different YouTube channels is referred to as CHOWNING.
This stands for content ownership
For in-network requests (Vevo channel to Vevo channel)
Please send the below template titled “Standard Chown Form” to email@example.com.
Chowns will be handled on a monthly basis and delivered around the first of each month.
These requests normally take around 72 hours to process.
For out-of-network requests (Non-Vevo channel to Vevo channel)
We will need to invite the non-Vevo channel into our network before we can proceed with the migration.
The owner will have to unlink their channel from their CMS account so it can be invited into the Vevo network, temporarily.
Once the invitation has been accepted, we can proceed with the normal steps stated above.
Please see this for more information on how to unlink your channel:
The content provider will also need to deliver the content to Vevo using the channel "invalidvevo"
Once the migration is complete, Vevo will update the ISRC to be linked to the artist Vevo channel.
When the video has been migrated successfully, Vevo will unlink the non-Vevo channel/OAC from the Vevo network.
The content provider must then re-invite the OAC back into their network.
Can a request be rush if the video needs to be moved urgently?
Yes, please flag your request as urgent and Vevo operations can send the form over to YouTube before our bulk monthly request, this can still take 72 hours to process at YouTube.
My video was a YouTube Premiere on my OAC channel; can I now move this video to a Vevo channel?
No. Due to YouTube restrictions, premiere videos are seen as archived live streams and cannot be moved (CHOWNed) between channels.
