If the film clip contains music, you must obtain permission from the composer separately, and if appropriate, the lyrist and record company. If you want to obtain a license for the use of a film or television clip, contact the Screen Actors Guild-AFTRA to locate the performer's agent.
You CANNOT sample music without permission, no matter how short or long the sample is. Copyright is copyright. And if the sample is recognizable (hell, even if it isn't recognizable), you're using another person's intellectual property in order to construct or enhance your own.
Copyright protection lasts for the life of the author of the musical work and expires 70 years after the author's death. To use music in a film, you must obtain permission from the copyright owner. Permission is in the form of a licence, which states how you can use the music, for how long and for what cost.
The copyright owner decides whether they want to allow you to use their music. In most cases, the owners will be happy to let you use their music in exchange for putting ads in your video.
You may have heard of "fair use," a copyright provision that permits you to use 10, 15 or 30 seconds of music without copyright obligation. That is, you understand that you can use a short section of a song without paying a fee.
This is one of the most common misconceptions. Unfortunately, this is not true and there is no bright line rule that says a use is an acceptable use as long as you only use 5, 15, or 30 seconds of a song. Any use of copyrighted material without permission is, according to U.S. copyright law, copyright infringement.
Users of YouTube and other video-sharing sites could face $750 per clip penalties if they have watched a video that was uploaded without the copyright holder's permission. Copyright infringement in the United States strict liability offense.
You can, for instance, discuss a copyrighted work on your podcast (such as a movie or book), but fair use does not give you the right to actually play clips of material or music without permission.
So if you want to legally use copyrighted music on YouTube, you'll need permission from everyone who is a copyright holder for that specific song. Getting a license for a song means you'll have to reach out to each person on that “copyright holder” list.
So yes, you can absolutely make money by “Uploading Movie Clips” on YouTube, as long as you also remember to add something of value: Entertainment, Education or preferably both.
Generally, a movie quote is not sufficiently original to stand on its own as a copyrightable work. However, a movie quote can receive protection in an infringement action while still not being independently copyrightable, as a movie script would be. quotes cannot be protected under rights of publicity.
As long as it does not effect the sales, then no. The fair use law gets you covered. You can also sample from music, as long as it doesn't effect the sales of the track you sample from negatively, and it gets used in another context/genre.
For example, in the United States, copyright rights are limited by the doctrine of "fair use," under which certain uses of copyrighted material for, but not limited to, criticism, commentary, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research may be considered fair.
Like music clips, copyrights in film and TV clips are owned by a group of creators, each with their own copyright. While getting permission to use music clips is relatively easy, getting permission to use film clips is not.
Only use content you've created yourself
By far the safest way to avoid copyright infringement and strikes is to only use your own content on YouTube. If you only use music and videos that you've created yourself, you won't have to worry about copyright claims as you'll be the copyright owner.
Yes you can upload a video on YouTube that is without any sound and subtitles, you wouldn't have any problem so adding subtitles is a solution and YouTube won't do anything to the video since it doesn't have anything of copyright in it.
For example, YouTube cannot grant you the rights to use content that has already been uploaded to the site. If you wish to use someone else's YouTube video, you may want to reach out to them directly. Some creators list ways they can be contacted in their channel.

Legal note: fan edits aren't technically legal.
Fair use is a legal doctrine that says you can reuse copyright-protected material under certain circumstances without getting permission from the copyright owner.
Fair use is the right to copy a portion of a copyrighted work without permission because your use is for a limited purpose, such as for educational use in a classroom or to comment upon, criticize, or parody the work being sampled.
