    Hello,

    I started to make a simple tutorial website about a year and a half ago. I then dropped the project to focus my time else where. However the domain renewal came up about a month ago and I decided to finish what I started. The site is up and running ranking alright. The site has about 20 video tutorials hosted on Youtube and just embeded.

    I got accepted to be a Youtube partner but the problem I'm having is; I made the first 2 videos over a year and a half ago. I got the music off a PLR site and can't remember for the life of me the site name, author or title. (I'd some how manage to rename the Mp3 'howto')

    My question is how much will youtube look in to this. The music is just generic PLR background music (lift music-esk). can I get away with just saying its a track by Kevin McLeod and then just credit him in my videos?

    I really don't want to take the videos down as between them I'm at over 1.3million views. and I'm Travelling around Borneo for a couple of months making maintenance a bit tricky.


    Also one other question whilst I'm thinking about it. Each page has 3 adsense blocks on it. Would the add in the Youtube video put my adsense account at risk?

    Thanks in advance, I'll try and check back as soon as I get the internet again.

    If you want to be a Youtube Partner then you'll have to delete the copyrighted media.
    bute there are several networks that don't bother you with that. like Fullscreen. they don't ask you to delete the copyrighted videos (this is the network where a lot of coverist musicians are partnered)
    If you achieve the partnership and the network doesn't care about the media, then you can still have those videos BUT you cannot claim them as your own property. and then you can not monetize it and will not earn money from that video.
    Also, if your channel is a software tutorial channel then you will have to PURCHASE the software and send that to youtube in order to earn money
    yeah, i know -.-

    Its not a software its in the crafts genre, I am literally filming my hands making things showing people how to do it step by step. I want to stick with youtube purely because of the weight it carries. I am fairly new to Youtube is there a way to just alter the audio on a video without having to change to much?

    Thanks

    cool! crafts!
    well, then you should submit your application, i don't think they reject you. try with Fullscreen.net/creators
    When you get your partnership you can upload more videos but this time you can use their free music (they give you a huge list of free music to use and earn money without copyright)

    By now, you can do an audio replacing in youtube (go to your video and click in the Audio tab.) but i don't really think you could earn money with that
    Good luck and you can ask more you need more help
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Thanks for the advice LK_galspanner. really appreciated. I'm going to get cracking on that now!

    In terms of money making I don't think I'll make to much off YT but you need as many income streams as you can. As for the site its self. I'm ranked 3rd for a 3k exact a month with pretty much no SEO and getting around $1 a day off it. Its be no means a cash cow but its another string to my bow and bit of fun if nothing else. and if things get tight I can always sell to fund something else.

    Thanks again and I'll let you know how things work out.
