    Hi guys

    Just wondered if any of you post videos to youtube? I've had a play with it, only using the share button on my PS4. I don't have any capture hardware or software. With the likes of Pewdiepie it seems this has become a viable way to make a living, if you're interesting enough which I'm sure I'm not ha ha

    I've setup a youtube channel but tbh I haven't got a clue what I'm doing but I did wonder if any of you, as probable IT nerds, were any good at it?

    Cheers
    Jim

    It's a great way to make money for doing stupid sh1t :D

    take a look at the user 'howtobasic' - he's got millions of subscribers and all he does is smash the crap out of his kitchen and throw eggs and make weird noises, and i think he's awesome :D

    If you do start getting some considerable amount of views, go into your account settings to enable monetization - this is where the cash comes from. Ad's are then enabled on your video's, and by some algorithm they pay you a percentage of either views or clicks.

    I uploaded a clip of gogglebox that i found funny, got around 26k views - but that's nothing compared to major ones.

    Oh wow nice one mate, I'll check him out now. It's all new to me, despite me hearing about people doing it. Not really something I'd do although I don't mind uploading random videos from my PS4 because it's easy

    I have done the odd technical one if I think a blog post requires it, none of them get masses of views but then I'm not bothered about earning directly from blogs or YT vids etc.

    A 2nd vote for HowToBasic

    Oh and "Regular Ordinary Swedish Mealtime".

    But to answer your question - no, I doth not have my own YouTube channel.

    One of my close friends though is a drummer and he created his own channel of him recording covers. Did pretty well out of it in terms of exposure and now he's endorsed by a couple of well known drum brands and has been asked to do video reviews on some of their new products.
