Hi, many apologies if this has already been answered before (there's no search function for this board that I could find).

I'm using quite a few Kevin MacLeod tracks in a Dungeons and Dragons campaign that's being recorded and uploaded to YouTube. Due to the nature of the video it's sometimes hard to keep track of which tracks are playing in the background as there are quite a lot of them. My question is does every single track have to be attributed individually, or does something like this suffice:

You can find the attribution in every download window - did you miss that?

How can we improve this, so you do not miss this. Is the text too small? Did you click on confirm without reading the text? Did you read the faq? If yes, was the text too small? Does the categorization of the faq not make sense for you? Did you miss anything, that could be the reasons that you did not find this question/answer?

Sorry, just some questions to improve the process.

Ah, thanks for the reply. I am sorry for the obvious question, now that you've pointed that out. I did look though the FAQ but somehow missed that entry, possibly due to the wall of text.

And to answer your sarcastic questions with a genuine reply; the reason I asked the question was because I did read the notice on the download link and was concerned that if I didn't list all the tracks individually I would be breaking the terms of the agreement. I'm only asking because I want to do the right thing with regards to using this music, but obviously adding in a few dozen tracks is going to be a ballache and wanted to know of there was a shortcut. As you have so eloquently pointed out; there isn't. Which is fine.

It would be nice to maybe have a note under the licencing text suggesting that if multiple tracks are used then each track needs to be listed individually. Obviously it's hard to tell how many people go looking for an answer to my specific question, but I'd be willing to bet it's a lot. But hey, I'm not here to tell you your job.

But thank you for answering my question and thank you for hosting this website with all the amazing music contained therein.

Hmm... in the download window "exactly" is underlined. It is also a point in the faq.

Any suggestion how to make this better so you understand it better? I thaught that the information in the download window + faq should be clear enough.

So help me to find a better solution.

"if multiple tracks are used then each track needs to be listed individually"

Thats a good idea to add this sentence!

I added this now: "If multiple pieces of music are used, they must all be named individually exactly as described above."
