    So this afternoon, I was happily browsing my Youtube Channel and I checked on my analytics page just to see how my videos statistics were doing and was interested in seeing if I had made any more money than I had which was $34. However... It turns out I had gained over $94 on a successful video I made back in 2010 which has over 100k views which isn't even monetised. It gets quite a bit of attention but I'm really confused on how it has suddenly just gotten $94, heck I'm surprised it got any at all, I didn't know you could earn money on non-monetised videos. Can someone please clear these things up for me?

    Thanks, Oxygen97.

    What do you mean? You didn't have AdSense for it and it made you money? How can they even do that if you don't agree to monetize it!?

    I have adsense on my Youtube account but I didn't enable monetising on that specific video, I'm confused myself.



    EDIT : Actually, I do think I tried to enable monetisation on it in the past but failed since it was a music video, don't know if that helps :/

    You didn't earn the money, the copyright owners did. Your video got claimed by copyright owners (probably automatic id).

    Aaah, that's probably about right. I went on my adsense account and it said that I've only earned around $25 - $35. Okay cheers.

    Does your video have any copyrighted material on it?
