    I've got plenty of quality tutorials from different websites (like Tutsplus) which I paid for, and they are very valuable.

    I know it's not ethical to share that kind of material, but you can find tutorials from these sites in a lot of torrent websites. I just happen to have some that are not shared anywhere yet (not that I know).

    I think PPD is not worth it, and I don't know if CPA allows this kind of promotions.

    Could you suggest me some of the options to monetize this kind of content?

    Place your affiliate links. Put them as many as possible, but don't look too spammy. Watermark them with your website.

    I wouldn't do it, simply because of copyright issues.

    Instead I would start a tech blog and create my own video tutorials about whatever people wanna learn.

    If you mean the affiliate links of the website, I don't have them. I just have the videos downloaded.

    If you have the time, you could watch each tutorial and make YouTube videos out of them.

    Plug Adsense into your videos and put affiliate links or a link back to your website with full details of what the video consisted of in the description and you are all set. Do some SEO on the videos and wait for them to rank.

    Do something like this, YT videos or use the material and re-write/re-package it (or Hire a freelancer to do it) as long as there is significant deviation from the source then you should be OK copyright wise.

    Thanks for the suggestions. This is time consuming, but it seems to be the only way to avoid copyright infringements.

    Time consuming but at the end you would have your own product to sell/license.

    Haven't thought of that! Since udemy is getting popular, I could re-create the tutorials and sell them there. Thanks for the idea!
