Is it ok to make a dataset that includes data from youtube?

Hello I have just started learning about music separation and machine learning. Would it be ok to include things from youtube videos in a dataset? Im not sure if the quality of youtube videos make this a bad idea because they are compressed?

Any help is appreciated, thanks for reading !!

Please do share your learnings with the community in case you try this. :raised_hands:
