I am curious why Youtube has so many advertisments nowadays? Does anyone know?
At first Youtube was free and it operated quite a long time as such, how come all of a sudden it needs money? And it needs so much money that advertising have plagued almost every video ... The same may be said of the internet altogether: all was free and with no regulations. Now, we see more and more how people are trying to make all sorts of incredible profit off of it and to add more and more rules to it ... Is greed just unstoppable and bound to corrupt everything?
i noticed there are a lot more adverts on youtube in the west than here in the east. most videos here are "ad" free.... i guess it works well in the western market.
I recently read Sony has filed for a patent to show adverts in the ps3 or some gaming console ... so in the future you will be forced to watch an advert before the game starts ... definitely getting crazy and annoying.
After Google bought YouTube, it made recent changes such as allowing YouTube users to monetize their videos. It used to be that a YT user had to be invited to be able to make money on YT. Now, if you have an Adsense account, you can monetize your videos as long as you follow YT TOS.
Thank You for the details. What is TOS? And is it up to the uploader if they put advertisments up on their videos or is this directed by Youtube? I am sort of confused here ...
TOS = Terms of Service agreement, blah, blah... Lots of legislative jargon and rules, to say the least, but you better pay close attention and not violate those things, nonetheless!
Plus, we all know it is about monetization!
@Mr. Happy - Yes, if you have a YouTube account and you uploaded a video, it is up to you to monetize your own video. You have to have an Adsense account. Ads will appear on your video and you earn money when people watch your video.
It's similar to the ads here on HP if you are signed up through Google Adsense Earnings program you can sign up for ads to be on your videos and blogs while earning per click.
