gameplay doesn't get banned, even it has no face, vo or commentary. another sample is cooking channel that has no face, no voice, no commentary. or hydraulic press channel. they are all content. so why should youtube ban it.Yea, but no face, no voiceover, no commentary. Just a gameplay.
these days youtube cracks down on a lot of non commentary gameplay channels.
I mean its just a gameplay without any voiceover or comments. No editing, no nothing... How is he monetized?
youtube wont ban it but they can demonetize it.gameplay doesn't get banned, even it has no face, vo or commentary. another sample is cooking channel that has no face, no voice, no commentary. or hydraulic press channel. they are all content. so why should youtube ban it.
gameplay without commentary is not transformed.Usually, a video gets banned or demonetized if it's stolen content or content the creator doesn't own without it being transformed with at least some narration or commentary or other things to make the video their own and to provide some type of original value to the viewer.
If you're just uploading yourself playing a game with nothing transformed over it there's nothing against that and YouTube will allow you to monetize it.
probably, just they sometimes ban slideshow video and sometimes not. here's one case about commentary video.youtube wont ban it but they can demonetize it.

in this case they said that as long as the montage is yours, you don't need to add commentary or physical appearance. but if the montage is from someone else, you need to add value into the video before reuploading it.

that channel has value, he's good in FPS game, and only play FPS game, he's also game developer and developing modded weapon in steam.adding value is what i meant by "unless your content is special"
there are people who do plain basic gameplays and get rejected or demonetized like the channel described in ops post.
without adding enough value and doing plain gameplay is at risk of demonetization.
adding value can come in the form of transfromative editing, modded gameplays, cinematic gameplays, montages with transformative editing etc.
such cases wont need commentary as there is enough value added

the reason why youtube not allowing 'no commentary video' is because it's tend to be used by spammer to create junk content and upload it to milking money. channel that has value, engaging with their viewer, etc. won't get demonetized. every rules that youtube create, it is because some blackhatters that try to milking fast money from youtube, and then youtube saw it, and implement new rules. so as long as youtube didn't see you as spammer, and think you're legit person that only want to upload your own game montage, and people love it. there's no reason for youtube to demonetized you.
your sample isn't relatable. even top10 videos with hard editing can be demonetized. you can also see this in weng's thread, even some of his client got demonetized for this.
and btw, some game give commercial license for the user, IF THE GAME DOESN'T GIVE COMMERCIAL LICENSE, then you SHOULD do commentary.

whatever you and I said, the fact is that channel keep uploading no commentary videos (even put that as title), and get monetized.
if he's demonetized, he won't upload more content anymore, or start doing stream or commentary videos.
