[twitter] YouTube Flagged Jonathan Blow For Posting Footage of His Own Game - Page 7

Please, get a job.

I can understand networks like IGN, Machima, Freddy Wong, etc that post HIGH quality productions. But people like AngryJoe? I find him foul and annoying. I don't get why he should be paid to sit around swearing, and then moan when that free ride comes to acropper for a short while. He owes Google/YouTube more then they owe him.

considering the huge commission google takes out of the advertisement revenue from each video...angryjoe doesn't owe google a thing. For the record I find the guys who made jackass obnoxious. That doesn't stop millions of people from watching and enjoying their antics. Heck, South Park started off as construction paper cut outs. Production quality doesn't determine legitimacy. If people are willing to watch angryjoe; and google/angryjoe can make money then they're just as legitimate as IGN, machima, etc.

This happened to my friend today. He's developing Tenshi Oni for iOS. Flagged for his own content,

I agree. I might not like him, but that doesn't affect his legitimacy in monetising his videos. However, IGN, et al, have other revenue streams to fall back on. He should too. That he's not making as much money form this isn't a legitimate complaint.

Seriously?

Just because you don't like them their work isn't valid?

Come on, that's just ignorant.
A lot of youtubers, even the blogger ones or gamers, usually put in tons of work.
You just don't see most of it.

If they can make a living off of it, why not?

My point is just because he doesn't have the production quality of IGN doesn't make his job, less of a job. A lot of youtubers spend a lot more than 40hrs a week editing videos. If Angryjoe found a formula that works for producing his videos and people are willing to watch, then it's a job. The fact is google is now (thanks to contentID's new policies between the potential 3 day waiting period and copywrite trolling) is now grabbing a larger portion of the advertisement revenue. This affects all youtubers, from the low quality angryjoe's to the higher quality Nerd³. Again quality should only be relevant as their abilities to attract an audience.

Why are people who do not monetize being flagged?

Which is why game companies are working with Google to fix it. They like lets plays and stuff, they don't want it flagged.

I never said it wasn't valid. This post I'm quoting, check out the post directly above it smile.gif

I don't like him, or his content. But I understand the fact that he can monetise his work.

Right, but as I said, complaining because he isn't making as much free money as he did before because of content ID isn't valid to me personally. Seems like putting all your eggs in this YouTube money basket is a crappy idea.



And to both of you: I don't like people who can be asses on camera and make money off it. Which includes British chef Gordon Ramsey, that thing off X Factor, Simon Cowell, and Piers Morgan. I absolutely detest these people and the fact they make money being pricks is highly frustrating lol.

My point is it isn't free money. Video editing takes time and skill. Lots of youtubers work their butts off to put up content, some are of better quality than others. And in many cases they put in more than 40hrs a week. From that work comes advertisement revenue. From that revenue google takes half under normal circumstances. With google's new polices, while the video "can't be monitized" google takes 100% of advertisement revenue, which means they're taking even more money. And in the cases where the claim is invalid, which at the moment seems like a huge ammount, the youtubers still get 0% while google keeps 100% of the revenue generated during the false claim.
