As some of you might have already noticed, we brought some changes to your iMusician dashboard. Basically, we’ve removed the standalone YouTube CID (Content ID) option. Now, the Content ID monetization can only be ordered along with the distribution of your release. Thanks to this:
- It’s smoother and more efficient for you to order CID;
- You’ll fully comply with YouTube’s guidelines, positioning yourself for better royalty revenue in the future. Your music will reach a broader audience and be protected more effectively.
Moving forward, when you submit your music for distribution, the CID request will be automatically completed during the process. Separate CID requests will no longer be possible after the music distribution is initiated!
On your end, it doesn’t change much; simply proceed with your music distribution as usual and switch the “Enable YouTube Content ID” toggle if you want to monetize your tracks.
