Is it true monetization is basically set up the same way on all video hosting sites?

Reply Wed 5 Jun, 2019 04:42 pm
Hi. I am curious about this. I would like to showcase my own animations and comics in video form online on as many video hosting sites as I can- YouTube, Dailymotion, Metacafe, etc.

Is it true monetization is basically set up the same way on all video hosting sites? You have to generate at least 1 million views per video before you can start making any real money on any of them?

I know on YouTube you can earn $1-$5/1,000 views per video. On Dailymotion and Metacafe you can earn $5/1,000 views per video.

I don't know about how monetization works on other video hosting sites like Vimeo or Veoh, for example.

Please help- thank you.

YouTube will no longer allow creators to make money until they reach 10,000 views
That's 10k views in total for the channel (not per individual video... though that would easily help).

I don't know anything about the other two hosting sites. Have no interest in spending time over there to find out.

I don't know anything else on monetization on YouTube. Try here....

As long as people's videos are still generating views on video hosting sites on YouTube, Dailymotion and Metacafe, etc. they are still making money off of them- correct?

As I explained on Yahoo Answers multiple times months ago:

Monetizations works similarly across the sites, though the viewership thresholds for Dailymotion are lower as those site is not popular. Metacafe did have a Producer program but it was abandoned due to low profitability.

Also, it is preferable to use just one video hosting site, to avoid splitting your viewership. If you do post on all video sites, than you won't be able to reach the viewership thresholds because everyone is watching in different sites.

Logically speaking, why wouldn't you multiply your viewership threshold if you host videos on more than one video sharing site?

I'm talking about reaching viewership thresholds, not gaining viewers.

For example:

Let's say your show is in 3 different sites and your total audience is 100 viewers across the 3 sites.

For monetization, Site A has a threshold of 100, Site B has a threshold of 75, and Site C has a site of 80.

In viewership numbers (remember, the total is 100), the video on Site A has 55 viewers, the video on Site B has 20 viewers, and the video on Site C has 25 viewers.

Due to the fragmentation of your audience, you failed to reach the viewership threshold on all three sites.

This is partly why regular TV/ Cable networks don't premiere new episodes on different channels.
