You are watching a video on YouTube that listens to a wonderful background song. Would you like to know the name of this song, but how do you find the name?
Some songs are easy to recognize, but you need more patience to recognize others. Use our step-by-step guide to find the names of all the music you hear in YouTube videos. Be with the Wironal.
1. Check the video description
The first step is the easiest step, but many people ignore it. You will find most of the copyrighted track information in the video description section. YouTube automatically adds this information to the description by detecting the copyrighted song. This is part of a system that allows copyright holders to protect their creative assets.
So you have to go to the video description section before doing anything. Click Show More to see the full description of the video. Then scroll down to find a section called Music in this video. In this section, you have access to the name of the song, its creator, and other information. If this song is available on YouTube, you can click on it and open the song you want.
In the videos that use several songs, in this section, you will see the names of all the songs. However, the order in which they are shown may not match the order in which they appear in the video. In this case, you have to listen to each of these songs to find the song you want.
2. Search for lyrics on Google
Do not worry if you can not find your song with the above method. If the music you are looking for has lyrics, you do not need to use any other method. Just listen carefully to the music lyrics and then do a Google search for them.
This method will often show you the name of the song, the name of the creator, and other information about the music, and may even bring you a video of it. If you can not find anything on Google, try Find Music By Lyrics. This search engine is also owned by Google, but its settings have been optimized to find the lyrics.
The main problem with this method is that you can not use it to find cover songs. The music of many films is a cover of well-known music. Do not worry if you listen to a piece of music and realize that it is not the music you are looking for. If you understand the name of the music, look for its name along with more information, this information can be the name of the movie or something else.
If this method does not work, you can look up the name of the music plus the word cover and see what results you get. If you are lucky, there are few covers for your song and you can easily find the song you want.
3. Search (or ask) in the comments section
Everyone loves good music, so why not be the first to look for the name of this music. Search the video comments section to find such a possible question and its answer.
You can use the traditional method, go to the bottom of the page in your browser to open all the comments for you, then press Ctrl + F to open the Find box in the browser, type the phrase song and read the comments that used this word.
Whether or not such a thing will help you find the song you are looking for is a chance. If the video has low or poor quality comments, you will not get results from this method.
Using the YTComment Finder site is a better way. Although this site does not look very good, it allows you to search in the YouTube video comments section. Enter the video URL and then click Search this video.
Type the word song (or the word you want) and you will see all the comments that contain this word. If none of the comments contain this word, click on View replies in the comments section to find your answer.
If you can not find anything, you can ask questions in the same section and ask the name of the song. Of course, do not be surprised if you receive irrelevant answers!
4. Use music recognition apps
You may be wondering how you can shazam a YouTube video to find the song you are looking for. It seems that most of the time you can come to this method and try it if you do not get results from other methods. You can also use add-ons for browsers to detect YouTube video tracks.
AHA Music (Chrome Plugin)
ACRCloud offers several tools for recognizing music on its website. One of the easiest ways to find songs in your YouTube video is to use this free Chrome plugin.
Install this plugin. Then run the video you want and click on the icon of this plugin in Chrome. This plugin tries to detect the song in the video. Finally, it provides a list of songs and you can click on them to open them on different music platforms.
This plugin also stores all previously detected songs, so you can easily search for older songs.
As we said before if you have a question in your mind about how you can Shazam a YouTube video playing on your phone, here is the answer. Shazam is one of the best music recognition apps and it also works very well in YouTube music recognition.
One of the easiest ways for Shazam to detect YouTube music is to play your YouTube video on another device. When you open the video on another device, open the Shazam app on your phone. Hold the phone close to the other device’s speaker, and Shazam will quickly detect the music you want.
If you want to recognize the video song playing on your phone, you must use the Pop-Up mode in Android or Auto Shazam in iOS. On Android, go to Shazam> Library> Settings> Pop-up Shazam and enable this option. Then go to the video you want and play it. Tap the hover Shazam button when your song is playing in the video. Shazam recognizes the song and gives it its name.
If you are an iPhone user, you can not use the Pop-Up mode. Instead, you have to press and hold the Shazam button to enter Auto Shazam mode. It detects music in your environment and can even detect playing sounds from other apps. Open your YouTube video to get the name of your song.
5. Ask people who specialize in online forums
If the above methods do not work, you have only one other option. You should ask an expert and hope that he knows the name of the song. Fortunately, we have online forums and communities that do just that.
You can start your work from these three points:
You need a Facebook or Reddit account to post your query in these spaces. If you do not like these options, you can use music recognition forums such as WatZatSong.
Asking your question in these forums means that you have tried other methods and have not received an answer. To make it easier for others and increase the chances of getting the right answer, you should share the video link in a way that starts from the time you want, to do this, pauses the YouTube video at the time you want, and then from the Copy option. Use video URL at the current time.
The clearer your question is, the better your chances of getting faster and more accurate answers.
