Image to upload excerted from YouTubeEdit

Hi GRuban! I realized that you excerpted an image of Judirth Libermann from a YouTube file, and successfully uploaded it to Commons. This way of image uplading to Commons is new to me. I think if it is a general way I can add some images to articles, which are lacking any. My question is: 1) is there a Wiki-guide how to achieve this, or 2) can you give me a brief instruction, or 3) would you upload an image of "Semin Öztürk Şener", which I excerpted from [1]? Thank you. CeeGee (talk) 14:20, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

File:Judith Liberman at Zorlu Center.jpg? Glad you liked it!
1) Not yet, but I guess I could write one. I did write a JavaScript Bookmarklet to help, but it's not necessary, I did it for years without one.
2) Basically, take a screenshot at the appropriate time, by hitting the PrintScreen/PrtScr button and pasting into your desktop Paint program or equivalent, https://youtubescreenshot.com/ can also help. However,
3) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgP2t0b7Lzs is not good, because it doesn't have a free license. Take a look at Commons:Where is the license on various sites?#YouTube about finding the Creative Commons license on YouTube. Also be careful; there are YouTube users that will upload copyrighted programs and mark them as free, you'll need to be reasonably sure they do own the video. If it looks like a commercial television program, but is uploaded by some amateur user with three other uploads and under a hundred subscribers, it probably is not really theirs. --GRuban (talk) 14:33, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Thank you very much indeed. I know now a little more, and see that not every YouTube video is the right one. CeeGee (talk) 15:01, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

OTRS verified accountEdit

I hereby confirm that under the OTRS ticket 2020041210007363, you, User:GRuban, are authorized to "license individual screenshots" from the YouTube channel "dulceosuna" videos under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International license and upload them to Wikimedia Commons.

Thank you for your efforts.

Kind regards, Ahmadtalk 02:52, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

  • File:Tiaré Scanda en Dulce Osuna.jpg is missing an OTRS ticket. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 18:56, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
    • Thank you! In case you're interested, what happened was that I noticed that a few of the Dulce Osuna YouTube videos were marked Creative Commons, but had text saying (roughly) "don't take my videos" in Spanish. So I wrote her an email to clarify the issue. She changed the text for a few, and said she'd love to help out with more ... but when I sent a list of another 5 or so, she was really busy. So I found the bit on COM:OTRS that said "Please send us a clear statement that your Commons account (or some other Commons account) is authorized to license your works, either any work or some set of works, e.g. "My images from event X, 2013-10-15". We will make a note of this for your future uploads." and she said she'd love to do that! So I am now going through her years worth of videos and grabbing screenshots - not the whole video - and putting them on articles. I sent her the first batch of 20 or so and she said she was happy, so looks like it works. --GRuban (talk) 19:30, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

Just take care of yourself. I try not to get close to other people when shopping and have seen terrible stories of the C-19 virus causing blood clots in patients such as this one from a reputable Canadian news site. Its also very sad that when someone is dying from c-19, no one can be with them either. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:29, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

Looked at the YouTube ones first. Many good that I approved, at least one that I nominated for deletion, and a number that I'm not sure of, possibly because I'm not an India/Pakistan expert.
  • Thank you GRuban for the quick review.
  • Regarding: File:Dawood_Ibrahim.jpg: While the channel is certainly not being the creator of image, the image is in the media since early 90's and it seems to me that the copyright of the image is supposed to be held by many, including ETV channel. If you consider its not, could you suggest a proper India-license? (in regard to the above where you mentioned: Fair dealing)
No, sorry. "the image is in the media since early 90's" is not a justification for deciding it's "held by many" (how would that even work?) or otherwise freely licensed.
Can you show some evidence that they own the images? Are they specifically music video images, and not movie images? In my experience, it's not uncommon for music videos for music featured in movies to use a few images from the movie, but I don't think that gives them the rights to the movie images. See, we (Commons) care a lot more about copyright than most people or companies, who are happy with including fair use images. We can't.
  • File:Supernova (CGI).jpg: Its a screenshot @ 0:23~0.24 secs in the video. MTV UK owns the trailor copyright:ref. Yes, its from a comedy segment, but the graphic (in image) seemed good. Please consider omitting it if it seems akward.
That doesn't say MTV owns the trailer copyright. It says the trailer is exclusively on MTV, but I don't think that's the same thing.
Will get to. --GRuban (talk) 14:28, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
GRuban; Got it. Thank you for quick analysis and sort-out. --Gpkp (talk) 15:37, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Vimeo images reviewed, 3 approved, 2 nominated for deletion. Can you look into the Pakistan Cricket Board video, please? If you can show that PCB films their own events (which is quite possible), I'll happily approve those images. I can see lots of similar videos on their YouTube videos page, but they vary in style (the overlays especially) slightly, which implies that maybe different local television channels do the actual filming. Or maybe they're PCB videos and their style just changed over time. --GRuban (talk) 16:34, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

Could it be called a proof/confirmation, that it is mentioned all videos in their official website's video page: https://www.pcb.com.pk/videos.html ; all videos are linked to their official youtube channel. Even to me it seems: ‘’their style just changed over time‘’. --Gpkp (talk) 17:36, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
Hmm. Let me consult with ... The Angel of Death!   Well, not really, but it is a user who has demonstrated that he is good at demonstrating that some released YouTube video content is not owned by their YouTube publisher. @BevinKacon: Bevin, I know you didn't want to formally be a license reviewer, but may I consult with you about a YouTube video? If you don't want to read all the above, basically, would you say that this YouTube video was filmed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (the official Pakistan cricket organization), or is it excerpts from some local television channel? --GRuban (talk) 17:49, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
GRuban, as per this ref the series aired in Pakistan on PTV Sports, which is Pakistan's state-owned broadcaster. Even PCB is a govt. body. There are not even watermarks of any other TV logos etc. in the video. --Gpkp (talk) 18:25, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

reviews of some of my picturesEdit

Let me first thank you for your hard work !! .. you reviewed some of my files, thanks for that.. Can you please look at this example : File:Orthotylus marginalis (Miridae) - (imago), Elst (Gld), the Netherlands.jpg You (or the tool you use) copied the entire content of the source parameter of the information template into the licencereview template, this breaks the html code as you can see in the result .. can you please just copy the url in the future ?, thank you.. I don't know what is causing it there must be some problem with one of the templates. Maybe you can understand what's going on ? Bj.schoenmakers (talk) 02:15, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

@Bj.schoenmakers, Hannolans, Lymantria: I'm using the standard License Review gadget recommended in Commons:License_review#Instructions_for_reviewers. It seems that Template:Waarneming.nl does not play nicely with it. I fixed it in this file, but let me ping the creator and last person to edit that template, maybe they can figure out the issue? Folks, here is what clicking "License+" on the standard license review gadget does to a file using that template in the source=. --GRuban (talk) 13:54, 14 June 2020 (UTC)
I usually just copy the link when clicking the "license+" and past that link. Lymantria (talk) 15:34, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

Review requestEdit

Hello GRuban, Greetings!
Requesting review for following files: 1, 2, 3, and a video.
--Gpkp (talk) 17:08, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Doing, but note that you can get better resolution on the YouTube videos. If you click on the gear icon (4th from the right, sometimes marked HD) on the lower right corner of the video, then select Quality, you will see options to select resolution. That's the maximum height of the video. (It will show at whatever you size your browser at, but beyond that height it will interpolate.) The Steven Laureys video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8HR3LSUXrk, for example, is available at 1080p. I'm guessing you can resize your browser and double the size of File:Steven_Laureys.jpg in each dimension and only get improved quality. --GRuban (talk) 19:57, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
All good, but do improve the quality of the images if you can. --GRuban (talk) 20:02, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi GRuban, can you Please help me to check, reviewing and verifying this photos down below; I'm pretty sure all of this pictures is a screenshot that was originally uploaded on YouTube under a CC license mentioned on each of the photos summary and licensing.

License ReviewEdit

Hello GRuban thanks for your questions, I would posted my answer shortly in a while. C1K98V (💬 ✒️ 📂) 16:51, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

Thanks. Fair warning ... there might be some research required! --GRuban (talk) 17:52, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
Yes research required, but why Fair warning? I didn't get you. Would you like to elaborate about your reply above. Thanks C1K98V (💬 ✒️ 📂) 18:40, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
From your COM:LRR response, you figured it out! Better than I would have done. Don't apologize for slow response - a response within hours is fast, and anything under several days is not slow. Do look at the other one as well, though. --GRuban (talk) 19:04, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
Good morning, Yes the first part which I posted is quite big as per the research work, I will post my answer of the second part of the question in just a short while. Do have a look when you are free. Thanks, have a good day, stay safe.C1K98V (💬 ✒️ 📂) 23:19, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
GRuban Thanks for motivating me by your comment You're better at this than I am. But I would like to rephrase I'm a quick learner, or something like everybody learn from their mistakes, I did a lot of mistakes, that has helped me, but I regret making those mistake. I remember a message of your on my talk page regarding a copies of a file and it's license review, which made you a bit upset, I apologize for that too.

Dear GRuban,

If you have time, please just review this single image. Thanks, --Leoboudv (talk) 21:35, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

  Done It's the official channel of the festival, so I'm going to believe they have the rights to release. --GRuban (talk) 21:44, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Thanks for your help. Its a brief snippet from the film but I had problems finding it. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 03:55, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

File:Laura Morera Mayerling (cropped).JPGEdit

Hello. I cropped File:Laura Morera Mayerling (cropped).JPG, which you uploaded, so the formatting on Laura Morera's Wiki page would look better. The cropped version is in a separate file, but the original one is now smushed together for some reason. Do you mind checking what is wrong with that? Corachow (talk) 18:11, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

The system seemed to think you cropped the original as well. Maybe there was a bug somewhere? I have never seen this particular bug, but do occasionally have some smushing issues, maybe 5% of the time when I crop? Anyway, I reverted, and it seems to be fine now. Thanks for the notice. --GRuban (talk) 18:20, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Ask for new imageEdit

Hi GRuban, can you find YouTube screenshots of Sandra Dianne, she was a Malaysian singer who passed away recently and YouTube screenshots of Mira Filzah. Thank you.-Fandi89 (talk) 05:25, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Maybe? I found three Creative Commons Attribution ms:MeleTOP videos of "Sandra" who seems to be a singer - was this she?
and Mira Filzah
So here's what I do.
  1. Search on YouTube for the person's name, then select "Filter" at the top, Features, Creative Commons.
  2. Unfortunately the filter doesn't work completely, so it will often return videos that aren't Creative Commons. For each one I need to go to the "More" link at the bottom of the image description and expand it to make sure there is a Creative Commons license.
  3. Then I need to apply common sense - does the YouTube account actually have the rights to the video they uploaded? In this case, this seems to be the official YouTube channel of the MeleTOP television show, the "about" page https://www.youtube.com/c/astromeletop/about says it has 1.6 million subscribers, its videos have received 800 million views, seems legitimate. If this was a user that only uploaded 12 videos from different sources and has only 47 viewers, then that's a sign this could just be a copyright violator that the copyright owner just hasn't gotten around to complaining about yet; there are a number of those on YouTube.
  4. For each video that I believe the license for, I resize so the video is approximately the height it says on the highest "Quality" under the Gear Icon in the lower right corner of the video,
  5. lower the speed to the lowest (.25), scan around until I can get the best image (as much of the person visible as possible, looking towards the camera, smiling or a neutral expression),
  6. press PrtScn to get a screenshot,
  7. paste into Microsoft Paint, crop appropriately (sometimes crop off or paste over any video logos if I can without damaging the image), save as a JPEG image file.
  8. Often (not always), I open the image file in Microsoft Photos, which lets me brighten or darken the image. Often video screenshots are too dark, and brightening or vignetting improves.
  9. Upload, marking the source as the YouTube video, the author as the YouTube author page, and the license as {{YouTube}}{{LicenseReview}}.
Try it! I'm guessing you will want more images than just this. This proverb applies. --GRuban (talk) 12:37, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
On a slightly related note, does MeleTOP translate as "My Top" or "My Best" or no real English translation? I notice there is no EN Wikipedia article about it, and I'm tempted to write one. Explaining what the name means would be important. --GRuban (talk) 17:48, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
Article written: MeleTOP. It's not long, but has a lot more in it than the Malay one. Comments welcome. --GRuban (talk) 01:53, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
It's MeleTOP which derive from real Malay word meletup which means "explode" or "exploded". I have added hosts on the article that you created recently. Would you upload the images of these two subjects that I mention yesterday so we can use it to beautify their respective articles. Best regards.-Fandi89 (talk) 05:49, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
Thank you! Is there a news article that I can use as a source that says that about the name? OK, I will do the uploads, but honestly I hoped you would. You'd gain a lot by trying to do it yourself, mainly the experience to illustrate other articles. --GRuban (talk) 15:18, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

SandraEdit

OK, here are two images of Sandra on MeleTOP in 2016; the first is her singing in higher resolution, but that might be a bad thing as one can she had skin problems if one looks carefully. The other is lower resolution.

Mira FilzahEdit

And two more of Mira Filzah. Good luck! --GRuban (talk) 19:11, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Other imagesEdit

Thanks for your appreciate help, I have been created categories of these two subjects today. I previously have been upload images came from MeleTOP, but have been deleted due to copyvio. Can you find YouTube screenshots of Shukri Yahaya and Syafiq Kyle, there are their respective articles on English Wikipedia.—Fandi89 (talk) 05:23, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the categories. Sorry about the deletions, I'm guessing the issue was that not all MeleTOP videos are licensed Creative Commons. For example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVWlUwnQ6tY - this is the one where Neelofa announces she is leaving MeleTOP, right? I'd have loved to get an image from that, but it's not Creative Commons licensed. But if you think some were deleted incorrectly, please tell me; I'm not an administrator, but I am fairly experienced, and if some were properly licensed we can probably get them restored.
Meanwhile, I will need your help for images of those two actors, because I don't understand Malay language and am not immersed in the culture.
  • For Shukri Yahaya, on YouTube I see lots of Creative Commons videos from Memes Drama Melayu, such as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSX2jPJvCWM. I was going to dismiss that channel out of hand, because it looked like a fan channel just taking clips from television series, which they would not have the copyright to, but an automatic translator says the description of that video says "All the footage that is broadcast on this channel is not from television, the actual platform of this drama is aired. It is only footage for promotional purposes from IG, FB and others from artists and crew involved in the production of a drama." So I'll need you, or someone else who understands Malay, and Malaysian culture, to do some research and find out if this channel has the rights to those videos, so we can trust that they can put them up with Creative Commons licences. Can you find a news article or some other source explaining who is behind Memes Drama Melayu? Is it someone who is associated with the television productions, and is doing the filming themselves? Or is it just a fan who is grabbing videos they don't own?
  • For Syafiq Kyle - can you explain what is going on in this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnyJ7fzrXis? Is the actor specifically filming a short clip for ReChannel? The channel doesn't have many subscribers, only a few hundred, but it does have videos where they are interviewing people with their Re logo on the microphones, so I'm willing to believe this is a legitimate channel, filming its own work in general. But is the specific Syafiq Kyle video owned by ReChannel? It doesn't have a ReChannel microphone, so I'm going to need you to vouch based on what he is saying there that this is a ReChannel clip, or a clip from some other source that ReChannel might not own.
  • Finally - and this is somewhat embarrassing - to me, both the actors look a lot alike! Short wavy black hair, thin black beards and moustaches... if someone were to tell me that this picture https://famousintro.com/celebrity/syafiq-kyle and this picture https://www.nst.com.my/lifestyle/groove/2018/10/420326/showbiz-shukri-yahaya-reprimanded-indecent-act portrayed the same person, I could believe them. So you'll also need to confirm these are pictures of the right person! --GRuban (talk) 14:23, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for your explanation about this. Here are these pictures (all from MeleTOP) that have been deleted:

I have seen these URLs that you provided and I guess they are the right person, these are two actors that I know - Shukri Yahaya (born 1988) and Syafiq Kyle (born 1992). I've just have been visit Memes Drama Melayu's YouTube channel and the channel was created early last year.–Fandi89 (talk) 01:05, 22 October 2020 (UTC)

@Fandi89: Here are some of those that I was able to find (one from MeleTOP!) Please look again at the Syafiq Kyle ReChannel video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnyJ7fzrXis, and explain what he is saying in the video. Is the actor saying that he is specifically filming this short clip for ReChannel? Does he mention ReChannel by name? --GRuban (talk) 16:18, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

@GRuban: I have seen the video that you provide recently, and here what he says: "Hi! I'm Syafiq Kyle, get the latest discoveries on ReChannel". Also, I have created the category for MeleTOP today and you can see the result, in case if you upload pictures and videos from the TV series soon, you can put the category as well.–Fandi89 (talk) 11:33, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
Beautiful, that's exactly what I wanted to know. I grabbed a screenshot, but it looked ... squashed. So I made another one stretched 25% vertically, that I think looks better, but it's an arbitrary stretch. Maybe it should be 20% or 30%? Or none? I don't think he really does have a face that is wider than it is tall, but ... ? Both in the gallery above. --GRuban (talk) 13:56, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
