I was just contacted by You-tube regarding a video that I had put up...

That I was eligible for revenue sharing for a video that I put up on you-tube...
When I checked on all of the criteria that is required...I do meet all of them..

Now for my question is has anybody else been approached about revenue sharing...
I haven't total read everything but from my take...I have to give up my rights to the video.....and I'm not sure I want to do that...

anybody else have some thoughts...Barbara

If i understand it right...the vids that you see with 10secs of advertising are the ones with the revenue sharing....you get pd some how by hits and how many times you got to the advertisers link....I have not read all the fine print YET...I'm just not sure I would want to give up the rights to a video...

I had the same thing from YouTube. I didn't get that part about giving up the rights, I was just thinking the video has to be yours along with music ect.. for copy rights reasons and like you it would work for me. I will Look at it again, but if you get a lot of hits it would be worth it even to loose the rights. I would like to see how much per hit. I don't think it is as much as .01 cent per hit but that could really add up if you got 10,000 hits or something like that.

My thoughts would be to send video to someone else and then I would always have a copy that way...
It's nothing that great, no music in it, it's of all 4 sxs's jumping...

I have a vid or 2 on youtube that is signed up for revenue sharing. I wanna say I agreed to the sharing last june or july and my account has generated about $40 since then.

As you reach certain amounts of hits you get a few cents then you get extra $ if they (viewers) actually click on the ads and view them in more detail. It's not a bad deal really from what I have seen and I actually wish I would be invited to revenue share on a few more (just need more time to generate enough hits).

A buddy of mine gets about $150 a year for his ads but he does a good bit of riding videos. He loads some of them on youtube with no music so it will be meet the critiria for revenuse sharing.

Thanks LBR, I have been one of the lurkers thats for sure. I kinda hate that my first post was about some youtube stuff but since this is primarily a Commander site I have been sitting back and soaking it all in for a while.

Some good info on here by the way.

I have been working on a deal with a buddy of mine about possibly purchasing his Commander X from him in a couple months. Seems like it will be a machine that will work well for me.

Sorry to highjack your thread Barbara, but I didn't want ya'll to think I was a corporate youtube geek that was trying to push the revenue sharing on you. I'm just a normal guy looking for a nut.

They rotate alot. The latest ad I saw on mine was a North Face ad. Cabelas was last week and I think Progressive insurance a while back. I haven't noticed a Viagra or Kotex ads yet.
