    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.



    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.
    How you make money
    Metacafe will pay you $5 for every thousand views your video gets on our site. Payment starts after your video reaches 20,000 views and has a rating of 3.00 or higher - which tells us that the viewers like the video. On top of that, the license to Metacafe is a non-exclusive deal - you retain ownership of your video. Metacafe helps build your brand by marketing your content and making you money.
    What's the potential?
    With well over 1 million unique users per day watching over 400 million videos every month, Metacafe is perfectly placed to deliver the most receptive audience to the most entertaining content. Whether it's something spontaneous in your home or something you've scripted, if it entertains, it has a place on Metacafe.
    What are the requirements?
    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.


    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?

    I have seen this guys videos before and I too wondered the same thing.

    Maybe your video gets flagged if the IPs are suspicious or if there are hardly any comments. So using the usual anon-proxies would surely get flagged.

    One sure way around it would be to use a bot-net, the IPs would be genuine but I do not approve of such hacking tactics.

    The problem is, you could be doing fine but one or two dodgy IPs and they might pull the plug on all your money...I guess multiple accounts created with different IPs are a definite prerequisite.
