Ability to embed Spotify Songs in Web Videos

It would be great if there was an ability to embed music from Spotify into Web Videos. Not actually adding the music in the video but when you play the video, Spotify will play the song in the background as if it was in the video. I believe that one of YouTube's biggest problems is that people use copyright protected songs in their videos. Using Spotify for the music in web videos would solve this issue.

 

In order for this to work there must come a basic music editing add-in for applications like Final Cut/Premiere/iMovie. Nothing complex just basic fade-in fade-out options. Artists will get some royalties through Spotify and people can use their favorite music in their videos. Seems like a win win to me.

 

In order to play the video correct people will have to have Spotify installed on their computer so this could boost the amount of Spotify users.

Kind of a nice idea, in the sense that YouTube's approach to copyrighted material is tiresome and outmoded and needs solutions, but do we really want Spotify entangled with yet another of the internet's behemoths? There isn't really anything inherently in it for YouTube, and while I can't claim to be an expert, I imagine that licensing music for videos is a slightly different beast to streaming audio. YouTube need to make it easier for ordinary users to include copyrighted music (for everyone's sake), and the least convoluted way I can think of would essentially entail YouTube saying, "We'll pay the royalties, but you have to suffer this ad before your video plays". Meanwhile Spotify keeps doing what it's best at, which is being Spotify.
