I watch mostly YouTube on TV, and occasionally someone with a channel will make a comment about how YT works. YouTubers like having lots of subscribers. "How Ridiculous" recently got their ten millionth subscriber. They earn money based on many factors: number of subscribers, number of watchers, number of non-subscribing watchers, number of minutes watched, number of thumbs-up, and number of comments received.

They have to be very careful about the words they use, or they will be demonetized - not earn money. Occasionally, a video will be banned for the wrong reason, and the channel owner can protest, sometimes winning and sometimes losing. Music is a touchy subject. If they recognize a tune, and someone owns the copyright, they will not allow the music, not allow the post, or add advertisements. If someone presents a song, but YT doesn't recognize it, it stays in the video. Some music is protected in some countries but not in others. I'm sure this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Thanks for the info, Jerry. I think I will forego setting up my channel - too many rules.

As someone said, "Thanks for the info, Jerry." I found these details interesting, and I thought someone else might, too.

Setting up a channel is no big deal, and if you're not doing it for the money, those rules don't matter. Many people make a good living from their YouTube channel.

I watch YouTube tutorials on Affinity Photo. Most of these guys/gals have very few subscribers - some a few hundred, but not thousands. I wonder how they survive unless they have a day job.

If I want to learn something or see a review, YouTube is my Go-To. I learned a lot from YT when I had to replace a roof.

I was just offering information about YouTube. I never knew how involved it was, and I thought other people might find it interesting.

What is your point in responding?

Some people like to learn something new everyday.
Some people think they know everything and learn nothing new.
Some people share what they found out with others.
Others, just don't care.

====================================================
What you said is so true........ The things I've learned on YT is enormous.....
I do not watch ANYTHING anymore on regular media tv, especially the news...... Some local channel watching maybe, but for only local gossip or disaster............

I subscribe to YouTube Premium for $12/mon. It is a undeniably a guilty pleasure besides being informative when need be. And, less I forget, no damn commercials except those that are embedded.

I rarely watch YT but my wife watches lots of cooking related stuff. Haven't thought about a lot of those issues but have assumed the $ makes it worth people committing lots of time to it. Many of the cooking related things include their spouse and children also... it appears to humanize the experience... rather than just the mechanics of cooking something.
