    So it's no news that youtube makes alot of money. And 'alot' is probably an understatement. So why don't they make an effort to stop mass uploading? Surely if they make people enter a captcha everytime they upload it will reduce mass uploading? And I know there are DECAPTCHAs out there but that's beside the point. I am sure there are a hundrent and one ways YouTube can stop mass uploading. So why aren't they doing it? Is it because they are profiting so they don't really give a monkeys?
    Share your thoughts!

    I know all the mass uploaders on BHW will bash me but I am just wondering why YouTube hasn't done anything.

    More videos = More ads showing = More profit for youtube.

    Don't they have a way to ban people who mass upload eventually?

    I think this way they can always get them.
    If they made mass uploading impossible, then people will find other ways to exploit that would be extremely hard to detect.

    This would be my guess as to why they don't do anything about mass uploading, but they DO ban people who do this (or that do this without knowledge on how to do it without being detected)

    As long as people change their ips, accounts, videos, etc. Then theres no way to stop it.

    It's not like youtube doesn't make an "effort". They are catching up on spam, but there's far too many videos on youtube to monitor.
    My youtube accounts have also been banned now and then.
    And where's the harm in uploading mass videos anyway?

    Think again, they are not fighting spam? They want your shitty scammy videos to appear on the front pages? They will add captcha to "upload page" and that way will fight mass upload? It's one of the easiest thing to bypass captcha, the hardest part is to make fully working soft, especially on such sites like youtube.

    As I said there are ofcourse decaptchas out there that can solve captachas but let's not forget that youtube is worth billions. Surely they can think of different methods?

    Let's not pretened that mass uploaders provide good quality and good content. Most, if not all, are spammers advertising content lockers etc for fake keygens. And if not for fake keygens then it's downloads to viruses/keyloggers - malicious content.

    Agreed that mass uploading videos are not high quality ones or that provide good content, but its not like they are getting a lot of views. Also, there's a reason why flagging system exists because youtube cannot handle these many videos itself. So even if one of you video gets flagged, then you lose your entire channel and your domain gets blacklisted too.

    If your video is shit, you can upload it as much as you want, but don't expect to get traffic to it or be on visible places.

    Isn't part of the answer to this the difficulty of automatically detecting the content for "spam" or other undesirable characteristic?

    Text and code are far easier to monitor and BHers still find success with "spinning" textual content.
