I know this is the YouTube section but thought this idea would be most relevant here. Anybody check out MetaCafe.com and upload videos? They have a revenue program that pays you for your video,, a plus over YouTube. ~~~~ Here's an example of MetaCafe's top earner. This guy has made $110,000 USD total,,, and this video alone has made him $10,244. The video is only 1 minute 23 seconds long. -ttp://www.metacafe.com/watch/756433/laser_flashlight_hack/ ~~~~ A brief bit of info for the program: Metacafe's Producer Rewards? program rewards you for creating and submitting great videos. How it works If your video has what it takes to entertain people, we want to license it and pay you for every view. Every time someone watches your video on Metacafe, you earn money.

For a video to qualify for Producer Rewards, you must own all the rights to the video and the video must meet certain content guidelines. Please see How Do I Qualify For Producer Rewards? for details. ~~~~ Now,,,,,,,,,,, I'm wondering after the video is approved by humans then released to the public,, if you could inflate the video's views with a software and collect even more money? They definitely count the number of views. I wonder if they track every viewers IP address? Anybody research metacafe yet?
