    Hey guys, I'm looking for a YouTube content locker (I want people to subscribe to my channel before showing them content)

    Now that YouTube made serious changes to their sub buttons, is there still a working YT content locker?

    I don't mind if it's a paid one.

    Maybe you can take a look at

    support.google.com/youtube/answer/157177?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en-GB

    If you embed your content on your website you can let your customers pay for acces to the videos.

    Thank you for your answer, but I was actually looking for a way to make people subscribe to my channel before giving them access to my content :)

    I talked to OnePress and they said their YouTube subs functionality works (you get redirected to another page though)

    SocialLocker by Onepress works, but yes, a window pops up to sign into their account, then they have to accept the terms to sub

    To add; my conversion ratio is 50%. Expect more than half to click off when they see the locker. Also depends how good the hidden content is.

    Bought the OnePress social locker and I'm happy with it. I'm far away from converting 50% of my traffic though, didn't expect that much anyway :D
