Doubt about web covers

Hi, I've started to submit some webcovers in a YouTube channel I found.


I had no problem at first, I found songs that already had web covers like this one Drive My Car and I simply clicked on the link to add a new one.


But as I was continuing my work I found this web cover: on the song Aie A Mwana by Bananarama: Aie a mwana Currently that song has no web covers available and as such I can't find a button to add a new web cover.

How should I do this?


Another doubt.


The YouTube channel says the cover of the song is Bananarama. But SecondHandSongs has an older version as the original: Aie (a mwana)


Where should I add the webcovers in this case, on the SecondHand original or in the one attributed in the YouTube channel?

I believe you can submit web covers the same way you submit regular ones, but I don't remember offhand. At the very least you should be able to do it from the work page. As far as the other question goes, it doesn't matter as web covers are tied to the work itself rather than a particular version of that work.

Yes you just use the add cover feature on any work or performance page. All you need to do is select YouTube only in the pro forma.

Based on a earlier experience, seems like one can't add a new original supported by only a web cover, The original remains an orphan or something.

Thanks all.


It shouldn't be a trouble since, in this case, it is not a new original.

Pencho15 is there anything we can do to our interface, to avoid the questions you had?

I'm not sure.

The only thing I can think of is adding a slash in the submission form to make it clearer.


It could be:


Only on YouTube / Web cover

Thanks Mathieu . We'll know if this helps if... we don't get the same question anymore! 🤪

And thanks Pencho15 also for bringing up both the issue and a possible solution.
