When you choose music from Plxabay as video background music, sometimes you will

get content ID claims from YouTube if they upload this kind of video.

Content ID claims will cause the following problems:

  1. Block content from being viewed.

  2. Monetize content by running ads on it and sometimes sharing revenue with the uploader.

  3. Track the viewership statistics on the content.
