Music: Non-Music Section

From SponsorBlock
Jump to navigation Jump to search


This is only for use in music videos and videos which feature music as the primary content. It should cover parts of the video not part of official mixes. In the end, the video should resemble the Spotify or any other mix version as closely as possible, or should reduce talking or other distractions.

Exceptions/ Edge Cases

  1. This category exists detached from other categories.
  2. Intros and endcards should still be overlayed in music videos. If all non-music segments are correctly placed and you submit an intro or endcard that is partially not covered by a non-music segment, your submission is definitely wrong.
  3. Silent parts in the middle of original mixes should not be cut in the corresponding YouTube video.
  4. The cut should only be made after you cannot hear anything anymore. Boost your audio to make this type of cut accurately.
  5. Non-music may cover anything if needed, including visual indicators. [1]

Positive Examples
The middle part cuts parts not part of the song. There is no endcard at the end, because it would cut the music video. MORGENSHTERN - NOMINALO (Official Video, 2021)
The start is exact. The endcards only starts once the music has faded out. BROWN MUNDE - AP DHILLON | GURINDER GILL | SHINDA KAHLON | GMINXR
Negative Examples
Segment at 0:43 - 0:58 skipped a voice over section. This is technically a valid submission, but the song is playing at the same time as the voice over so it skips part of the song. Madonna - Material Girl (Official Video) [HD]
The video is not a music video, no non-music segments should be added, Highlight should be used if skipping to the completed song Turning My Cat's Meow Into Dubstep
This video is not a music video, it is a short film that features the music. Taylor Swift - All Too Well: The Short Film
This video is not a music video, it is also a short film that features the music. 9/21/21
