Migrating videos to and from different YouTube channels is referred to as CHOWNing.
This stands for CHange OWNership.
There are two types of CHOWN requests.
- Vevo to Vevo: Moving a video from an ArtistVEVO channel to another ArtistVEVO channel. This is typical if an artist has changed their name and is now using a new ArtistVEVO channel.
- Non-Vevo to Vevo: Moving a video from outside the Vevo network into the Vevo network. This is typical if an artist/label uploaded a video directly to an Official Artist Channel but now need to move the video into Vevo's network.
Please note: Vevo does not move videos out of Vevo's network.
Submit a request using the following form: https://ops.vevo.com/chown/
Can a request be rushed 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.
