    Hi, I've tried:

    -Content locker - but then realized that visitors don't really like that.
    -Amazon Affiliate - incase they want to buy the movie
    -Adsense
    -Videobb - $30/10,000 views (streaming)
    -UploadStation - $32/1,000 views (Download)

    So I will remove the content locker. I was thinking on doing the following:

    1) Add membership privileges to my blogger - But don't know how or what to use.
    2) Paypal donation button
    3) Add a notification near the nav bar saying "Additional HD Player - install this to view and download movies in HD Quality" BUT again I don't know where to get it or how I could install it.

    Please Help me with the dont knows/ Thanks

    Also rate my method.

    This was discussed a hundred times on this forum, use the search button. And maybe you should try Graboid download button just above each video, I was having some good results with it.

    Lol it's asked a hundred times because it is a total mystery how to monetise these sites now without having shedloads of traffic. I've tried everything too. Content locker takes about $2 a day from 1000+ uniques. Affiliatebuzz does nothing, it's a total nitemare....

    Well, I stopped promoting my movie site because of this.
    If I remember correctly, last year at this time of year, I was making around $50 per day with approximately 1000 uv per day.
