    I have a site that allows users to download youtube videos to their desktops. Similar to keepvid.com

    I was wondering what the best way to monetize it is? I'm using adsense atm but there must be a better way.

    Cheers, Matt.

    I haven't looked into it as much as I should have but check out LongTail Video. From what I am seeing they put advertisements from over 40 companies in your flv player and each play you get paid.

    Code:
    http://www.longtailvideo.com/

    People downloading videos from youtube through your site will download a flv version of the video - i assume, that is the standard ripping format.

    People do not have players installed to play those flv files. Therefore if you offer them a free flv player that will pay you per download, you get cash every time someone downloads it - make sure you sell them and tell them that they need the player to see the video.

    Check loudmo.com for a pay per install flv player.

    So, in two words, you wanna make money: flv player affiliate is a good choice.

    All the good ideas are already posted here. But here is another option, put a CPA gateway before downloading the video. This might drive visitors away keep that in mind.
