After much debate, Youtube ads are now here for good. It appears that Google is trying to listen to all sides on how exactly it should include ads around the players. Anyone can create a ad based player if they have a Google Adsense. We’ve embedded the Youtube ad player in our Forum. We’re actually having issues including it in this post.
It’s great to know that content publishers can finally start making money off of their creations. Of course not all are welcomed. At this time only certain videos will be shown. Most of these videos are the highest viewed and rated, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But if you’re a content publisher like StuffWeLike and haven’t had that break out video hit, you’re videos won’t be featured in other’s players. But if you have a website, you can still profit off of other people’s work.
Hopefully this will encourage users to improve the quality of their videos. Most likely it won’t, but again I did say hopefully.
