  1. That is not part of the Terms of Service that I see. Which makes sense since every country has its own laws and needs a custom terms page. But I talked to youtube and what I wrote in my first reply is the current enforcement strategy of the youtube policy team. And without being a lawyer, the quoted part of the ToS (at least in my opinion) don't prohibit the selling of channels. But rather for examples ISPs to charge extra to access youtube. YouTube Channel != Access to the service. And just FYI, this happens a lot with bigger channels. Just some examples: Fact., Smosh, Phillip DeFranco, Roosterteeth and many more.
  2. There is no section 4d in the terms of service as found here: https://www.youtube.com/t/terms Maybe we are viewing different documents or different versions of it.
  3. buying and selling channels is not forbidden currently. Selling and buying channels for the sole purpose of circumventing the YPP review queue is however against the ToS and will be actioned by YouTube.
  4. "without any bandwidth" might be difficult. Most that offer "unlimited bandwidth" have a fair use policy in place. Some options might be Hetzner, DigitalOcean or OVH
  5. Hi there, that's a lot of restrictions you put into place. Android, No Watermark, Free to use. You could check out our Database of video editors and see if there are any available that offer a mobile app on Android. https://www.creatorshub.net/databases/creator-tools/video-editors/ I would always recommend a PC for video editing.
  6. We are happy to introduce the next major feature that will be available for CreatorsHub members - Clubs. Clubs are a brand new way of supporting sub-communities. Many people have requested social group functionality and Clubs are our implementation of this concept. There's a lot to digest there! Let's go over the basic functionality. Club Types Four types of club are available: Public clubs Clubs that anyone can see and participate in without joining. Open club Clubs that anyone can see and join. Closed club Clubs that anyone can see in the directory, but joining must be approved by a Club Leader or Club Moderator. Non-club-members who view the club will only see the member list - not the recent activity or content areas. Private club Clubs that do not show in public, and users must be invited by a Club Leader or Club Moderator Club Users Each club has three levels of user: Leader A leader has all of the permissions of a moderator, and can add other moderators. They can also add content areas (see below). The club owner is automatically a leader. Moderators Moderators, as the name implies, have the ability to moderate content posted within the club. As the site administrator, you can define which moderator tools can be used. You could, for example, prevent any content being deleted from clubs, but allow it to be hidden. Moderators can also remove members from a club. Users Anyone else that joins the club. For closed clubs, there's an approval process. Users can request to join and the request must be approved by a leader. Leaders get a notification when a user requests to join; the user gets a notification when their request is approved or denied. Club Content Club Leaders can add a variety of content areas to their club - forums, calendars and so on. Each content area a leader adds can have a custom title, and will appear in the club navigation. This means, for example, that you can have multiple forums within a club, and give each a different name. Club Locations Clubs have built-in support for Google Maps, allowing you to specify a physical location for your club. The Club Owner specifies the location when setting up the club, and clubs are then shown on map on the directory page: And within a club, the location is shown too:
  7. Hello Community! I have played around with the design a little bit. If you have any feedback about the new design or Ideas, please let us know. Here you can see a before and after:

    Hi @LONI, welcome to the community. And thanks, its a accomplishment by everyone who is active here to make it what it is ?
  9. Hey. We try to be a hub for all content creators. Its a place to get help, tips and tricks, news or just exchange with other creators. We are also building multiple apps for creators including a free to use music database, collaboration tools, and much more.
  10. Some videos, especially videos with a lower view count uploaded in 2015 and earlier, are showing significant frame rate stuttering when watched at most Quality settings. When checking the Stats for Nerds page, all impacted videos show one of three codecs -- avc1.4d400b, avc1.4d400c, or avc1.4d4016. Videos from channels with large view counts typically use Google's VP9 codec, which is why bigger channels are not reporting this issue. Changing the quality playback for these videos to 360p changes the codec and causes them to play back correctly without stuttering. Only 360p works; even lower quality settings use the bugged codecs and continue to stutter. Temporary Workaround: These videos can be forced to permanently re-encode at all quality settings with a different codec by using the Enhancement module to save over the video (even if no changes are made). This is only a short-term workaround for your critical videos -- it doesn't work for very long videos (>5 Hours), and only 8 videos can be queued at a time for reprocessing this way. We will need YouTube's attention to address the underlying bug with these codecs. The stuttering typically gets worse as a video progresses. Check your older videos for these codecs and skip ahead to see if you detect the stuttering. If you do, for now, use the Enhancement module to re-encode your most critical impacted videos. This thread contains a detailed discussion on the issue with examples from multiple users and an Edit History as we were figuring out and isolating the problem. UPDATE: YouTube is aware of the issue and is working on a fix source: reddit.com/r/youtube
  11. Hey @fatchancegaming, happy to have you on the board. What came first, the chicken or the egg? To be discovered on youtube you need to produce watch-time on the platform for the algorithms to pick you up. But you also need to be in the recommendation system to get new viewers and produce watch-time. The only solution is to kickstart your channel with external traffic. And you need to get ride of you false pride. You DO need the help of your friends and family. The first fans of any artist or creator EVER have always been friends and family. Show your content around. Maybe invite them to join you in the videos to get them more engaged because they feel included in the channel. Also very important for the early growth of a channe is collaboration with other creators. Try to find other creators with a similar size and content and make videos with them on a regular basis. That will drive viewers from each other to the channel of the other and you will both grow. (A prime example of this is Jake and Logan Paul or the Sideman from the UK) And the last tip I got for you: be unique, do something unique. Innovate the style of content you are doing. A prime example of this is what Casey Niestet did to the vlog genre on YouTube. He did something completely new and he did it well.

    Hi @AdamG, welcome aboard ?
  13. This problem has been fixed, strikes expired as expected now. Due to a technical issue strikes that recently expired are not removed from your account. A YouTube representative said that those expired strikes still count towards your strike count. If you have 1 expired strike that is not removed because of this bug and you receive another one, you will have a total of 2 strikes on your account. YouTube is aware and working on a fix. We'll provide an update here when it has been resolved.
  14. Hi @PaulKnightzexx, good to have you here!

    Hi, I am Paco

  18. Sorry for this confusion. Now that I read over it again, yes sure without the second part its sound like a bragging douchebag. X-Sell advertising is also shared 55/45 and would be suspect to your 10% cut. Many of the currently hot youtubers will not make 10 - 20 million per year alone on AdSense, but with X-Sell i would argue the top few channels of YouTube are already archiving that. But no, in this case I wanted to direct the focus on agencies and networks behind the YouTubers. The pool of data I have access to from work is 40% Gaming related and there I can say most if it gets demonetization but also a lot of it will go through the appeal process successfully. I would agree, just one small problem. There is no one to fill this gap. Anyone who tried it in the last few years got crushed by the scaling issues. Thats the biggest problem in this monopoly. There is no one that could even fill the space in the market and no one of the big players shows real interest to build an actual product. The only player at this point would be Amazon / Twitch.
  19. talking about revenue here, not personal profits, and if we talk about me I am just a poor student getting over the rounds with engineering and data science, but for the mentioned case over 50 jobs depend on this. And this is just one example. I can tell you that every influencer agency will have to lay of employees because of the 10% less revenue you proposed. And this comes back to a point I made very early in this discussion. YouTube has over 1 billion users. As we all learned in school, every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Your demands are too short-sighted, with 1 billion users many will be negatively affected. The Union is not and will never represent all YouTubers. It can only represent a small nich of YouTube users and make the demands bettering the situation for them. Some points are universal and would affect everyone in a positive way. Like better AI Systems and better review staff with clearer guidelines. But other demands (where if you go back through this thread, I had the most problems with) are changes that only benefit a small group of users and would heavily worsen the situation for many YouTubers and ripple down to the people behind those YouTubers losing many jobs. And YouTube is not cutting of creativity. Everyone can still make a channel and upload videos. All for free. Video hosting is super freaking expensive. I can still remember a time when you made YouTube videos because of the creativity and passion. Not because of the financial gain. Just like any other artist. They do it out of passion, money comes secondary. And on your last point I agree with you again but I am also sure that is already being worked on. The tools for advertisers in terms of targeting the categories behind a yellow icon need to improve. I am sure there are more advertisers who would be okay with advertising in front of slingshots but since those get categorized as weapons and almost no one wants to advertise in front of weapons you are getting hit very hard. Thats why I feel like you should lobby with the union to advertisers to make them switch on these categories in their campaigns and show them that slingshots (or wooden Viking axes) are fun and can be advertised on. (I also said this very early in one of my arguments)
  20. Slight miss-communication here, yes i can confirm this drop too, although not as heavy. But we where talking about the YouTube Preferred program. There is no change is search traffic, suggested or recommended if are are part of the YouTube Preferred program or not. The only difference I can confirm in analytics is a higher CPM. You just perfectly described how the system works today. Yes there could be a finer filtering system. But the Advertisers can already today decide how far they want to go. Vulgar language? Sexist Content? Violence? They can target all of this. The yellow icon just indicates to you that your video is now part of one or more of these targeting groups and so you only get ads from advertisers who are okay with it. Just like any other artist, entrepreneur or influencer in this business size that youtubers are. Thats just how it is when you start your own business. And becoming a YouTuber is kind of like starting your own business. True, but even if we talk about a 50% conversion rate (that is super unrealistic, but still) with 1.000.000 Views that = 500.000 potentially advertised views that are not bringing any addiotnal value after the video. But are you sure you bring more value with your flyers then the supreme store with lines going around 10 blocks? Should Supreme pay you to be there or should you pay Supreme. and those 5 Million are reasonable for 5% of the viewership of YouTube. Everyone else would hate it. I myself would lose millions in yearly revenue with this 10% cut going to demonized channels. What value do you bring me on YouTube that would account for this huge cut in my revenue? I do see you bringing extra value to the platform with demonized channels but i also beliefe this value stays in the niche of the channel. So in terms of weapon building, this added viewership will stay in the weapon building niche. Why should PewDiePie earn less just because advertisers do not want to advertise on weapons. If if its just shooting IKEA pencils. (Yes I am a bit provocative in this statement, but its an argument, I need to put my point across, hopefully no one is offended by it) Then please point them out and I will try to make time to respond to those arguments as well. I have, or it should be implied. If I say reviewer are inaccurate and need more training that means that too many false videos are taken down or are not monetized again in the appeal process. Okay lets forget the Union discussion. Its literally only a small detail and was at the very bottom of the feedback post. (And just to be clear why I made it about location, currently he is the owner of all the IP and is responsible for it just in legal terms, so it does matter at least a little bit under what jurisdiction the YouTubers Union as acting under) Normally i would not reply to this, but since you care so much: Yes we agree on this. The current bot system is bullshit and inaccurate like a blind monkey presse two buttons at random demonetizing the video or monetizing it. So yes, yellow icon bots (the AI behind it) needs to improve, a lot. Current accuracy results are not acceptable with the amount of training data and time they had. (But also, Google has some of the smartest AI researchers in the world, if they can't figure out a way to make it more accurate, maybe its not possible with current technology. So maybe the answer is more workforce instead of bots)
  21. Oh boy, this conversation was just starting to be very productive and healthy, but here we go: You did not get the argument. That is not at all what we say. What we say is => Demanding "Monetization for EVERYONE" will also include extremists content and content that should obviously not be monetized but is okay in terms of free speech. I have no idea how you understood our argument as "you are just a group of extremists" Again, how does the size of this channel sell anything about his qualification? How do you know this is his only channel? How do you know that he is actively working on it to make it a success? Maybe there are other things someone can be working on that is not his personal channel? no? no? Sorry that I don't have the time to reply to every argument from everyone in detail. (And most of you posted the same arguments) That is true, but as someone looking from the outside with no involvement it looks like you are the head / organizer. So it makes sense to believe that this entity is somewhat connected to your home country in terms of jurisdiction that applies.
  22. Correct, this is in refernece to the press using the word "Gewerkschaft". And yes you meet the general definition of it, but regarding germany, where you are from: (Quoted from Wikipedia) So you are definitely not a "Gewerkschaft". But as I said, I am okay with the name "Union" in the sense of a united group. @BigMonMulgrew I will reply in detail later today. I don't have too much time right now.
  23. People will not bother, they will just read your demands list. This is the first point of contact. Maybe we are just on different terms here. In my opinion petitions are not weak and pointless. Its the digital equivalent of a demonstration. The bread and butter of any democracy. I have Analytics access to several hundert channels with half a billion views per month. Only a handful of them are in the preferred program and i can NOT confirm this. Analytics speaks a different language. Audience Retention is a relative measure, not absolut. Thats why is unfit for this demand. Also how do you know those people stayed and watched other videos of other people who are monetized? Thats why I say "demand more data to explore this issue". But we are looking in the same direction here Thats fine for me. Just that Jörg made it look like an actual union in the german press. Don't let it look like something it isn't. Strongly disagree. Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Information are so vital and important for our world these days. Just because advertisers don't want to put ads on it should not mean it should be removed from the public. But should everyone else take a cut of those 10% and pay them to you? Sound a bit communistic to me. Embedded views will most likely not switch over to youtube.com but stay on the site they where browsing already. How should ad revenue from this video be affected by your demand? It is split into this 3. bucket Jörg was talking about? Will it receive from this bucket? Thanks, its not easy to go against a wild horde of angry people who all know how to build deadly slingshots
