using free Youtube videos in paid app

I am making a paid app, in which there will be a few videos from youtube which are free but made by others. Will this be acceptable to Apple or will my app be rejected? Thanks

I used a lot of YouTube videos in my universal studios app. I was careful not to add anything that had a copyright notice, and just to make sure I had control of the videos, in case they were removed for whatever reason, I ripped the videos from YouTube and reuploaded them under my own YouTube account, marking them as private, and linked to those in my app. That app has literally hundreds of YouTube videos, and got apple approval on the first try.

All my videos say 'standard youtube license' with no other copyright statement. That should deb okay, right?

Use the tool here:

Just paste in your youtube URl, select MP4 for the output, and thats all there is to it :)
