    Why don't you put your own ad overlay on all the videos?

    Well those are some great numbers, OP! :)
    You can always test other networks and see for yourself.
    I wouldn't be greedy at that point, not saying you are. Then again, who am I fooling? :D

    Enjoy your success!

    I have Dedi server for $25 lol, can handle over 15k people at once (tested yesterday), but i'll buy way more stronger server once i can make more money with ads.

    Thank you mate.

    I would not deal with codes from CodeCanyon, but would work with an ad network for in-video ads.
    Better earnings, less or no issues with the networks.

    What player are you using?

    Thats what i wanted to test out, but people wont like that since my traffic is mostly from reddit, i'm posting my links to specific subreddit where people want to see specific highlight from a sport match. That's why my videos are long only 20-30sec or so...

    I'm not using a video player, i use direct .mp4, so it works on all OS and browsers.

    Player will also work on all browsers, though, for in-video ads you may have to use some specific player (there're a bunch of them available). Considering your videos 20-30 secs inserting a 10-30 sec ad would not do good, so working with display/native/non-standard ads would be the best option for monetization.

    Popads $ 1 for 1000 views.
    Sometimes $ 1 for 5000 views.

    You won't know the results if you don't try.

    Site users generate content will greatly suck up your server

    There are no adsense alternatives that give high PPC.

    You will only get $ 0.01 per click with infolinks

    Have you tried to create your own push notification setup and promote CPA offers?

    Sorry for bumping, but any help would be appreciated a lot. I just applied for BuySellAds, my site is getting bigger and bigger everyday. Adsense still not making much.

    That could have a negative effect on users and as well as whole monetization process.

    How many visits you have total? What GEO is your Reddit users? Do you mind sharing your site? - (you can pm me).
    Do you have any other analytics than GA to track user behavior? Do you track your traffic sources for performance?

    Thanks, I check your site and it's SW stats - it does look impressive.
    I have sent you a couple questions about ads positioning.

    I honestly feel like there should be another 0 to your daily revenue
