    Hi Guys,

    I have a youtube account that I've had for quite some time and I just noticed that ads appear at the bottom of them. I never signed up for rev share with youtube so I'm just wondering why they're showing up and who is getting paid when someone clicks on them.. solely youtube?

    thanx

    If you've uploaded a video that has Content ID claims then the content owner as well as YouTube are getting revenue from it. The content owner may have applied a monetize policy and thus ads can't be disabled.
    If it is a video without any claims and you've not linked your YouTube account to an AdSense account then it is only YouTube who are getting a cut. In this case you can simply disable ads on your video.

    Thanks Tommy... how can I tell if there is a content id claim associated with the video?

    got one more question... for the vids that are labelled: "Matched third party content" is there anyway of effectively modifying the video sufficient to keep the content but make it unique?

    No there isn't. Many have tried altering the pitch or tempo and even watermarking. But the fact is that you cannot beat content ID without drastically changing the original content.Sorry
