    My dad keeps sending me his head cam videos and there are some awesome firefights and I was wondering can they be monetized on youtube with my adsense or not?

    Cheers Luke

    Theres already plenty of youtube channels with first person videos from Iraq.

    If the videos are really good and great quality, upload them.

    You could also upload them with a watermark of your site.

    There are no dead bodies! Just some good old firefights, long range mostly. There is one where my dad gets shot in the arm lol

    Could try LiveLeak. I see this stuff on there all the time. The good ones get millions of views, the audience is looking for this stuff, and the admins encourage it. From there, monetize it with the typical video marketing strategies.

    Make sure you do not get him into any trouble with the military by posting these.

    If it's long range stuff with no gore I think you should be fine. If they're good you have a good chance of them going viral...make sure you get some facebook shares to help them spread.

    Hope your dad stays safe mate!
