    I notice that I now have just over 500 subscribers on my YouTube account.
    I am wondering if I will once again start receiving remuneration from the channel?  If so will this happen automatically or do I have to do something?

      You need 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 annual hours of viewing time. If you get to that point, you need to reapply for the partner program.

        Thanks, I was under the impression that it was 500 subscribers.  Clearly, I was misinformed.  Looks like it could be a long wait.

          YouTube made the guidelines more strict somewhat recently as well. They want channels to be pretty active first before approving ad monetize. Here are the official guidelines. https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/72851?hl=en

          Like promisem said you need 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 annual hours of viewing time.

      What is this YouTube thing of what you speak?  I mean, does it link to HubPages somehow?  I've not heard of it before, but I've been out of the loop for a long time now.

        They are referring to Youtube ads on their Youtube accounts. Nothing to do with HP. You didn't miss out on anything in regard to this.

      Thanks, I am Sally Gulbrandsen on YouTube.  I don't have much but always got paid regularly before they changed the ballpark figures.

    I reached the required threshold and it really is not that hard to do. You have one year's time to pull it off. Be proactive on the account, grasp what YT wants and needs, and you should be fine. Good Luck! It is well worth the effort.

    Is there decent remuneration once you get to that point?  I have never looked into it except when I wasn't sure I'd get adsence approval right away with only 5 articles.  When it did come through right away I stopped looking into it. 
    Edit:  I'll also subscribe to you, Sally!

      Thank you, look for me as Sally Gulbrandsen.  I don't want to post a link here as don't think it is allowed.

      Many people report an average cpm of about $2. Some get as low as $1. But it depends on the content category.

      The amount of time it takes to produce a video is usually higher than the time it takes to produce an article. The low cpm compared to HP may not make doing videos financially worthwhile. Still, it is fun to learn.

      Many YouTube veterans, and I agree with them, say you really need to love making videos first and foremost. The money is just a bonus.

      Highly depends on many factors. Just like at HubPages certain content gets better ads. Also AdSense doesn't want people sharing their earnings too heavily. So no big channel will ever show much about their earnings.

      I have seen people online say expect a few dollars every 1000 views. This is an estimate though of course.

    Is that 1000 viewers and 4000 hours viewing time on a single channel or on multiple channels  if you have them?  (If you have 2 channels do you need 1000 viewers and 4000 hours of viewing for each channel before you qualify?)

    Another question - they're talking a lot about getting rid of channels with duplicate content unless it has been significantly edited, editorialized or has a lot of added content.  There's also mention of making sure you go to the owner site to check copyrite and contact the copyright holder directly to make sure you understand all their requirements to use their video.  How do we just use videos as we want on HP (or have I been really screwing up these past few years - though I've only used a few I didn't do all this for each one.)?

      Nope, adding on HP is fine the way we have all been doing it. Youtubers can set up videos to be "view on YouTube only" if they want to.

    Natalie, It is per channel. Two channels require both 1000 and 4,000 hours each. Viewers share my vidoes all the time. More they are shared the better for me.

    Doing what you love to do and making money at the same time is an ideal lifestyle.

    You need 1,000 subscribers as a minimum before youtube reviews your channel for monetization eligibility.

    Before this whole 4+1 K business, many YouTubers and bloggers have highlighted how the revenue is actually pretty abysmal, especially when considering the amount of work involved in making a good video. Supposedly, successful YouTubers use their channels to promote their brands, blogs, affiliate businesses, etc, rather than depend on the income.

    And then, of course, there arethe  people who simply enjoy putting up videos. If there's revenue, it's a bonus.

    I tend to agree. Before I was unceremoniously booted out of the program, I was making cents. Far lesser than what I get here or through stock picture sales. But, despite the exit, I'm still putting up videos. I enjoy doing what I do in my videos. Of late, they have also been pushing traffic to my blog and hubs. So, not all is lost to me.

      Yes. From what I heard a lot bigger YouTubers are starting to consider other revenue streams than Adsense.
