How to help Youtube CID to recognize your tracks

How to help Youtube CID system to recognize your tracks?

Often the CID seems to fail to recognize the tracks it’s supposed to recognize.
If i’m not wrong it needs some time (how long?), but after 1-2 weeks what we can do to help the CID system from our side?

Hello @dgtldtrt

Thanks for your message.

The CID activation takes about 14 days after your order to be done (only if the tracks are eligible).
This is explained here → What Kind Of Content Is Not Eligible For YouTube Content ID? | iMusician

When you are ordering the CID you have to read and confirm the eligibility criterias in order to finalize the order:

If passed 14 days after your order the CID icon is still grey on your dashboard, it means that unfortunately the content your have submitted is not eligible according to YouTube’s criterias (you do not received any message from us about this).

Is the CID button grayed out for you? Can you check that please? :slight_smile:
