Do you have a youtube channel

I have a youtube channel where I have uploaded loads of video clips. I also have a free youtube movie maker which has helped me put together relevant music, photos and videos from my folder. It is free for a 5 minute movie which from experience has told me is enough to hold a viewer's interest.

Here is a clip that I have uploaded in my channel

I have a Youtube account; but I have never created any video content on Youtube, even though it is one of my main sources of learning and entertainment. I love watching Youtube tutorials about all kinds of things, and have learned a lot from these tutorials. I guess that I just haven't had anything special to make a video about.
However, my son has a Youtube account, and so do both of my grandsons, and they regularly post videos. My grandsons post music videos, and my son posts beautiful videos of his motorcycle rides into the spectacular mountains of north Idaho.

I actually sometimes just prefer tutorials that are simple text instructions but these days I notice most of these are in the form of video clips.
Are your grandsons musicians or do they upload music that they get on the Net? Those videos that your son must be capturing could surely be spectacular - specially those mountain scenes.

I also have an account but I have never posted any videos yet, as I'm not really into creating videos and I don't really like sharing the things that I do to other people on the internet. I just watch interesting videos on the platform and sometimes use it to look for tutorials on various stuff as it's really helpful in that regard.

Now there are a lot of sites on the Internet that offer a wide range of features. As an advanced user, I open dozens of sites every day. However, my favorite website is YouTube, because I can watch any video there. I can also share my videos with the rest of the world. Everyone knows that this is the most popular video site in the world. For example, when I started shooting my travel vlogs , it was hard to gain an audience. My colleague advised me to try a proven method, namely subscribers.video. There I was able to find a lot of positive reviews about my videos and a great asset from real people who are interested in this topic. I hope that you will be able to find people who will be interested in your topic and who will be waiting for your videos with no delay.

As a matter of fact, I do. Do you have a youtube channel It contains mostly online games review and some game plays from my favorite games. I've had that channel for quite a while now and I haven't been able to upload new contents lately. I am planning to add more game reviews once I upgrade my internet plan next month. My current plant has a very low upload speed and it can't upload files larger than 300mb. :/

I used to have that issue about slow internet. I used to enable adblock at every site so that I could get those pages on faster. Now the situation here in India has changed a lot. So many providers are vying with each other and offering high speed connections. With this, watching youtube or even uploading my own video clips gets done pretty fast. I am supposed to get money for Ads that appear on my video clips but so far have earned nothing.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

galegatling

Ads are fine for me. They only last for a couple of seconds anyway. My problem is just the upload speed. :/ I also earned nothing from my ads. Maybe because people already know how to avoid clicking those ads. Do you have a youtube channel




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

iamawriter

I wish I knew how to skip Ads. Every video I want to watch will first run Ads for a few minutes which is quite annoying and to think I was selfish in that I let youtube use my video for putting Ads which was supposed to earn me something (lol)




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

galegatling

I think there is a workaround for that but I forgot how I did mine. I used to experience that before but I did something and now ads won't show up at the start - only on the duration of the video. But it might affect your ads monetization on your video though.

I currently do not have a Youtube channel but I have always pondered whether I should make any Youtube videos. I learnt Adobe Premiere Pro as part of an extracurricular club in university but I was more inclined towards photography. I find Youtubing to be massively time consuming. It will take up my Internet upload resources as well as processing time for my PC. There is a chance for me to do it though but I will definitely need to get another PC for gaming so I can solely dedicate a PC for work purpose. In my country, the telco has also limited our upload speed so uploading videos will take a longer time as well.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

If you are only interested in photography then you can go for slide shows and youtube has free software for that. It also provides a choice for music as background to your slideshow

I have created a few slideshows and here is one:

Here you will notice there are only photos

I can tell that you love nature very much just from looking at your YouTube channel. Anyway, yes, I do have a YouTube channel but only because I need an account to be able to follow and subscribe to the people that I enjoy watching - I enjoy receiving notifications when they add new things. I also love to make my own playlists through YouTube since it's literally two clicks to add a video to the list.

A few years back when I was active on my blog, I used to make two videos per week and upload them to my old YouTube channel. I often discussed different gadgets and news related to technology. It was quite time-consuming making the videos though... there's always a lot of editing involved.

You mentioned that you're using the free YouTube movie maker program, I have never used it before but how is it different to other available software?




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Windows have free movie makers but my OP windows 7 does not have it. Windows XP had it and I used to use it quite well. I therefore searched the Net for any free movie making software and found one that youtube has. You can download it here
http://www.makeyoutubevideo.com/download.html
That is a for 5 minute video clip. If you want larger videos then you have to pay for it.

I used Movie maker for Win Xp, it is user friendly and easy to drag, drop the still images, sound and music into the video. I also added in text as subtitles. However, Win Vista doesn't have this function, after I upgraded the OS. Maybe I will try your link.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Windows instead of improving it robs us of features that existed before. I liked that movie maker feature in windows xp and now I depend on youtube. I either upload what I have creaed using my camera without editing or edit it in the youtube movie maker which is free only up to a length of 5 minutes.

There is no point using any sort of branded software like that if you need to pay for it, when there are actually free alternatives available. Sure you might not have direct YouTube integration (although I think that even that starts to be a generic feature nowadays), but it's not like uploading the video manually is a massive task.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

iamawriter

That software lets you create a file that can be uploaded on other sites without having to upload them on youtube first. You use that software create your video using all the wonderful features it has and then save in your local folder.

I do still have a YouTube channel although I never use it, to be honest. I used to want to create my own YouTube channel and upload videos often but I just never had the time especially with college and exams. I did upload a few videos onto my channel here and there but never properly. They were just random videos with the most recent just an analysis of two new Grand Theft Auto V cars that were released early without Rockstar telling us about them. I always wanted to properly get into YouTube because the money can be so good. There are YouTubers out there now that are making millions by uploading a few videos a month and it's just crazy.

If you want to earn at youtube you need to be serious about it and really work hard. You have to work hard to get views by sharing it on networking sites. There is an App on google chrome that allows you to share your work with many sites. It is called shareaholic.

You should never give up man, leave some free time for such projects and work a little bit, if you see that there are some results, you can continue working and you can make something out of your project. If you like doing it, then that's enough of a reason to try.

I have a YouTube account and I've uploaded a couple of videos, but nothing really big. I was curious about it because it seems amazing how people can earn that much with their channel. They are able to make thousands of dollars with their YouTube channel, and it's something I always wanted to do. But it just seems impossible.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

iamawriter

The first thing I see is the number of views that a video has been watched. Some run into millions of views and those are the videos that earn huge amounts. I always thought one had to sell videos but here they are free for all to see. These users must be having a partnership with youtube who share their profits from Ads that appear there.
I too have a partnership but my views are a far cry (lol)




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Tania997

Don't worry man, you'll get there! Your love for nature is genuine and I really hope to see you make it one day. And yeah, those channels always have some kind of partnership with youtube or with the ads themselves. You already have a partnership, so if you keep going you'll get big.

I have not worked hard enough. We need to share our videos and I have Apps where I can get hold of scores of social networking sites where my videos can be shared. I am seriously thinking of doing that. Thanks for your concern.

I was working on starting up a YouTube channel for quite a while, but I was a bit over ambitious with my goals. I'm somewhat of a perfectionist so I wanted to put out only the best possible content. Unfortunately, it became unfeasible for me to work like that after so many advertisers pulled out from YouTube and made it almost impossible for newcomers to start earning any money. In order to create the content I wanted to, I needed at least eight to ten hours a day of work. While I have no problem with that, I do have a problem with not making enough money to feed myself and pay bills.

Maybe once things start looking up for YouTube again, I'll give it another shot.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

iamawriter

If one's goal is to earn that will be a distant dream. There is yet another dream and that is for scores to watch your video clips and get a word of appreciation from them. Creating itself is yet another aspect that atleast I enjoy, putting together photos, video clips , recording my own voice and then selecting some background music.

I mean, I'd like to start earning at least somewhat through AdSense as the cost of living in my country really isn't all that much--not nearly as much as it is in the United States at least. Just thanks to constant issues piling up at YouTube, the requirements to earn even the most minuscule amount have gone through the roof. A lot of professional YouTubers are slowly looking to either move to new platforms or start their own media company to put their content out there, because YouTube has just been steadily getting worse and worse.

I have a YouTube channel which I have attached my Adsense in hopes of making money by posting gaming videos. I have made a couple of video game walkthroughs and have uploaded them to YouTube but have received very few views and subscribers haha! Do you have any techniques on how to increase views and subscribers? I'm getting zero adsense revenue from videos. Lol.

By the way, you have a very beautiful back yard. Watching your video made me feel very relaxed for some reason.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Thank you. My garden and pets are the main subjects for my videos.

You can share your videos with many social networking sites. You can download sharing Apps. Shareaholic is one such App. You need to register with all those sites but need not be active.

I do have a YouTube channel, which I mainly use to upload personal project to. The majority of my videos I actually upload to Vimeo, because I their platform is much more professional than YouTube. Vimeo's algorithm doesn't compress and do as weird of stuff to your uploads, so in general, the videos uploaded there tend to be clearer and higher quality, in my opinion. However, YouTube is nice in that is has a much larger audience potential because of the sheer number of people who use it on a daily basis.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

galegatling

That's really awesome. I always hear about Vimeo. I have sometimes watched some of the videos in there if via shared links etc. How is it? How are the ads? Or do they really have ads? I hate YouTube now because there are ads before during and after the video that you are watching. :/




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

TheArticulate

Vimeo does not have ads. They get around this due to yearly membership fees for those people who want to upload a good amount of content to the platform. You can have a free account, but you're limited to only uploading 500mb a week. I do video for a living, so I consider my $70/year membership fee (which is really reasonable, I think) as a business expense. I have no complaints about their service either. Great content, a good community, and no ads.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

galegatling

Cool. Aside from the benefits and good things that you have with Vimeo, could you also tell me what you don't like about it? Like the downsides and all. I sometimes watch some Vimeo videos from shared links and I feel that it buffs slower than YouTube. I mean when I open a video on YouTube, it would suddenly play and will buff and automatically adjust to the needed resolution.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

TheArticulate

Really the only downsides to Vimeo are that they don't have as much traffic as YouTube does, and they limit your upload amounts each week. Basically, because it's a place mainly used by serious professionals and the site's traffic isn't huge, viral videos never originate from their platform. So if that's the kind of video stuff someone is trying to make, Vimeo might not be the best home for them.

They limit the amount you can upload each week to not only persuade you to purchase a premium account, but also to maintain a controlled flow of content, so people don't upload ridiculous amounts of stuff at once. While it might seem like a turn off for some people to have to pay for an account, I appreciate that the Vimeo staff are taking an alternate route to keeping their site running and functional without having to run ads on every single video.

As for your buffering issue, I haven't noticed that issue per say with the platform. It could possibly be because Vimeo encodes their videos at a higher quality than YouTube. I think YouTube is built for efficiency, and Vimeo for quality. If you're on YouTube, you want the videos to load fast so you can watch them ASAP. If you're on Vimeo, you're dedicated to the craft of video, and you'd rather see what someone's created at the highest possible quality at the expense of waiting a bit for it to buffer.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

galegatling

Good to know. The upload limitations for free accounts is a really good way to avoid spam and less quality videos.

Probably that's the case with YouTube. It's built for everyone even with the lowest running machine. But automatically adjusts depending on the speed of the Internet.

This is very interesting. How is your viewership on Vimeo compared to Youtube? Do you compare the metrics? I have watched videos on Vimeo but I do not know whether they allow users to monetize.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

TheArticulate

My viewership on Vimeo is significantly higher than YouTube because I put a lot of my professional videos and filmmaking projects there. My YouTube isn't used very often. You can't monetize your videos necessarily, but if you develop a documentary, short film, web series, or whatever, you can sell your videos online. Essentially people would have to pay $1.99 or whatever you set your price at to view your production. It's a source very much driven to support a filmmaking community more than anything. Vloggers and such wouldn't find much success at Vimeo, I don't think.

You can take a look at my metrics here if it interests you:
Vimeo this past month:
Do you have a youtube channel

Vimeo the past year:
Do you have a youtube channel

And YouTube for the past year:
Do you have a youtube channel

Have you monetized any of your video accounts? I was invited to be a partner and I see Ads on my video clips but till now I have not earned a single cent. My satisfaction is when I share my work for the world to see. This kind of satisfaction sometimes is more than what money can buy.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

TheArticulate

No, I do not monetize my videos. Vimeo is my primary video platform, and they don't offer monetization options. If I ever produce something I think is worth selling, I think may put it on Vimeo for purchase and see if people would be willing to pay to watch my work.

I don't use YouTube enough to monetize either. If I were developing YouTube series that were actually gathering a good amount of traffic, I'd probably give it a shot and see how much I could make by running ads on them. But that's not the case, so sorry I don't have more experience there to share with you!




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

If you have plans to sell your videos then you will have to make them private so that they are not viewed. Have you done that? Youtube has an option to make them public or not.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

fishmonk

What was your viewership when you were invited to be a partner? Was it with YouTube? I guess I will try doing it just for fun and see where it leads me to. Also, making videos is pretty fun and fulfilling for me.

I do have one Youtube account, but I use it as a mean to keep up with my favourite Youtubers and channels, I don't have the slightest idea of using it as a mean to monetize since I know of my capabilities, I am not good with cameras and such because each time I realize I'm on a camera or something similar I immediately stutter and lost my confidence.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Do you mean that you would stutter even if you use a webcam to capture tutorials? Some people just do some on-screen tutorials which require voice so you might consider doing that instead.

You get an invitation from them to become partners going by how much your videos are viewed. I got an invitation but so far I have not earned anything. I see Ads on my videos though.

I see this comment from a couple of months ago, now they changed things a bit and you should cover some requirements that are kinda annoying to be host, but there is an idea behind them, because it's not as easy to get partnered now.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I am no longer interested. Also with their free movie maker I can now save my work locally without having to upload them on youtube. Whatever the situation I should have earned something with their earlier rules but I did not.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Somehow despite them inviting me to partner them and Ads simply pour I have so far not earned a single cent. However youtube gives me the opportunity to upload and edit my videos for the world to see my work. This in itself gives me great satisfaction.

I recently created my youtube channel to display my crafts. I really don't expect to much out of it because i know these things take time and effort. You just have to be consistent on your work and eventually good things will follow.
I also created a channel for my DIY projects, this channel is kinda personal and i really don't have a plan to monetize it. I just want people to know my work as a normal guy.

I know how hard nowadays is for a YouTuber is to find great content for posting it on your channel. A Hundred of new YouTubers appear every day, or maybe thousands. The conclusion is that it is hard to survive on this platform if you want to be popular. My advice is to use a converter from which you can download videos to use them for you content. I always use only https://youtube-mp3.me/fr/fr-2/ because it's very easy to use. You know that only 10% of converters are ok, but this one is the best one. You can choose the format you want to download the video. Moreover, the quality and sound are 1:1 with the video. Hope it was
useful for you ;)
