    When I uploaded my vlog (yes I vlog, however I do not make them public at all). In my vlog I did play music owned by other people, however my video is not public. Will that be okay to have in my videos? How will this effect my account ?

    If you're the only one who can see the vlog, it's legal (unless, say, the content comes from a DVD you stole from the store). If anyone else can get to it, it falls under fair use, and that's about as stable a concept as an elephant balancing on a non-existent pin. What's fair use to one judge is a definite copyright violation to another.

    The general rule when it comes to IP copyright is "if in any doubt, don't". ("See the way X is pointing in this clip?" and 3 seconds of video is probably fine. 2 minutes of music or a speech may be stepping over the line.)

    So, if I'm the only one who can view it, it is alright? But if others have access to it, then I should not do it at all?

    Seems legit.

    I'll make my best effort to not play music in my videos, even if I'm the only one who is going to watch them.

    It's just for fun that I make them.

    It's legal for you to listen to the music, right? It doesn't say "only if they're not embedded in a vlog" or "only if you use a Mac computer". Even if you have a dozen friends over when the music is playing it's fine. (You play a copyrighted CD at a party and 200 people at the party hear it. That's normal - and legal.) Just don't pass out the address of the vlog.
