    Hi I just want to share with you my way of making money Youtube and I hope you can take some tips away.

    Make money from video gameplays on Youtube

    If you do create some of these videos you can be onto a real winner with serious money coming your way.

    You maybe not a gaming person like myself so this is what I do and my friend gets the latest games for free:

    My friend loves to play computer games so I set up EZCAP game capture device and get him to record himself playing popular games. I wait for popular games to be released and i go buy them the day they come out. Then i take them round my friends and give him the game for free as present for recording many different stages of that game. I will make much more then the $50 the game cost me through these videos being uploaded to Youtube being a partner. I will add a few videos, long play and single mission videos.

    You can get the latest games and there release dates at GameSpot

    When starting out on Youtube...

    For a Youtube starter without or with a few videos your not going to get tens of thousands of views unless you make a video of a brand new game that's released the same day and you upload it straight away to Youtube. Then you have a much better chance of getting thousands of views.

    However you can still get a lot of views for games that have already been released before, as long as it's a popular game still being talked about.

    Just keep uploading and your subscribers will start to build. Once you have thousands of subscribers and you upload a video you will get hundreds/thousands of views within your the first hours of uploading it as your subscribers will know about it.

    Thanks for reading.

    Thanks for the tips. But can i ask you a few question :)
    -Do you do any SEO or promotion in any way for your videos or you just upload them and in the long run you get views?
    -And is it only footage of gameplay with ingame sound/music or you add voiceover?
    -How many video per game per days/week do you upload?
    -And finaly, do you have separate channel for each game or you upload all your videos on the same channel?

    Nice tips, I am not a gamer myself so your idea sounds good for me. :)
    Are you an affiliate/partner of YouTube already? (I do not know what it is called exactly, all I know is that some receive money from YouTube on a month basis).

    Hi I upload on same channel, no promotion at all and no seo. You just need to keep uploading to build your subscribers. Its best to add in your voice and talk through it but you don't have to. Just make sure there's no copyright music in background. Sometimes the music in the game gets flagged by Youtube just voice over it.

    Nice tips. I think including commentary is the best way to go, especially if you are not with a network. YouTube can easily reject your video for monetization otherwise. I'm sure there are ways around that, however.
