Is Darksydephil drunk when he plays?
He slurs his words, handles camera and player movement with a lot of sideways lurching, and belches into the mike constantly.

He's been hitting the gin bottle as of late because his life is crumbling around him.

His girlfriend left him. His YouTube channel has been deemed advertiser unfriendly. He's in massive debt with two mortages. He's pretty much paying for everything via credit cards. His parents refuse to loan him anymore money. His bank has overdrafted.

If you enjoy DSP's antics, know that they won't last much longer cause he's not gonna make it past 2017. His life is completely ruined.

It already was ruined by Google buying it. We need a People's Platform. At this point I think steps need to be taken to ensure internet remains a thing of the public realm like utilities. Also sorry but streamers and vloggers were the biggest infestation of cancer on the site so good fucking riddance. All these fucking idiots shrieking into microphones were harmful enough on their own to quality, and ensured every goddamn time I even wanted just a trailer it's jackass#3536 playing let's play installment #63 like are you fucking kidding me? And people like that helped lead the march to shoring up defense of ads, which were a new thing Google did and we all fucking hated, just as we hate Google demanding our private phone numbers for an account there (I still have multiple spoofed accts fuck them and it's easy to just use a fake vmail box to get verification codes).

Booting all these people from YT is like a chemo to newfriend cancer. The problem is knowing Google whatever they do is going to just be infinitely worse, like fucking paid commentators from a major network and TV length ads every five minutes (which they're close to doing). Literally the only reason why streamers made such money to begin with was an ad chain where you had them trying out products and pitching them to you after watching an ad for whatever product google advertisers pitched to you. It's a cult of consumerism and it's killing everything. No more spastic screeching is a fantastic[/ib] fucking idea mates.

yeah but annoying lets plays and insipid vbloggers aren't the only ones effected. this is still a net loss. I think what you're saying about paid commentators is true though. they want a personally curated thing that can compete with netflix. that's why they have so many tv shows for sale and "youtube red" nowadays. I bet they'll fail when all is said and done though. and that's the point where a youtube replacement will finally step up, or a previously unknown one will get popular. as it stands we'll just have to stick with what we've got for a few more years though. it'll be a very slow death.

The youtube search algorithm favors videos which were long and tended to be watched in their entirety, channels which uploaded similarly-categorized content regularly, and content that could be linked to other content.
The only reason they had an audience at all was that a video from a letsplay or reaction channel will be shown to a lot more people than other content.

Unless the video is demonetized or claimed by a third party who wants to put ads on, the only ads you'll see are the ones the channel who uploaded the video put on it.

Yes, he fucking is.

How is he similar to Chris-Chan? He loves Sonic the Hedgehog. He's terribly immature for his age. He's performed sexual acts on the internet in front of millions of people. He's constantly begging for money to spend on video games and collectables.

How is he similar to Trump? He lives beyond his means. He's racist and sexist, and anytime someone calls him out on it he pulls out "locker room" excuses. He's the head of a """business""" that scams people out of their money. He's hypocritical, smug, self-important and thinks everyone around him is an idiot. They both heil from the Northeast USA.

Nah dude that isn't how Youtube works. We don't get monetized until 10000 video views or 1000 channel views, I can't remember which. You get reviewed, which is just a delay so that viral video faggots can't get rich in a week, then you get monetized. If you don't monetize, you don't get to say no ads. They did away with that feature at least 10 years ago. It was only a brief time that part existed.

We get no say in what ads appear, we get no say in duration, we get no say in how much we make, we get no say in anything ad related. Other than, "Hey I want my pennies from this video you are forcing ads on, please approve me!"

Also, Google is trying some weird ass cleansing of Youtube for some reason. There are rumors going around about restricted zones of youtube where videos don't return from search results, don't tag, don't do anything discover-able. You literally have to have either an embed or a link to a video if it is deemed "bad." It hasn't been implemented but apparently the rumor mill says it is coming down the pipe in a year or less.

They are also demonetizing gaymers through a handful of new algorithms. First and foremost is naughty words. You can say more vile shit on TV that you ever could on youtube now. Or it gets demonetized. Ads still run on demonetized videos and google still makes money and companies still appear alongside literally any video, the creator just gets no money. So the whole reason for this new wave of demonetization is, "Companies didn't want their branding associated with so and so!" Is complete bunk. The other way they started getting gaymers and tons of other channels is algorithms detecting weapons. So you play any video game and it basically has a gun or sword in it, it gets demonetized automatically. So now games are objectionable content basically for all. Political channels and religious channels also have lost nearly all funding. Activists and other "dissenters" have lost funding. I don't mean to spin this politically but if you are living and breathing this as much as a small time but near full time youtuber, you'd see this is basically Google trying to go about a million times over board on the PC shit. And I'm not some conservative right wing loon. This is hitting every side of the aisle and is blatant corporate censorship at its finest. Channels are literally getting blacklisted. Attempts to discuss this with your "Youtube Representative" just gives you vague shit and line of bullshit after canned bullshit. I've spoken with dozens of channels who all do various things and they say they literally have made a video testing a camera where they say, "New Camera!" Add no tags, no description, nothing, Stand in front of the camera in front of a green-screen with nothing but their head on camera and their video automatically gets flagged, demonetized, and requires contact with a Youtube Rep to get it monetized, Which takes a week or more. Which at that point, the video has made all the money it will make and you're just fucked.

I also don't do anything really related to this shit. I do music stuff on youtube and even I get hit because my video will have something that triggers the insanely touchy algorithms. They seem like they are trying to run everyone away from youtube except for million sub+ channels and turn youtube into a channel-funded TV network where nobody at google has to pay any traditional fees associated with operating TV networks like Netflix or Hulu and just pay for bandwidth/storage rather than employees and actors and insurance and blah blah blah.

I've never had any political, religious, gaming, makeup whatever shit come up. It is just always music because I keep google free from any ad spamming they can use against me for that shit. They use basic feedback loops to suggest shit.

Watch 1 knitting video and suddenly it will recommend that shit. If you don't watch anymore and watch other stuff you won't see much more about knitting. Maybe don't watch religious or political stuff if you don't want to see it? Or watch it inside a VM or something. It isn't hard to escape Google at the moment.

I agree. If anything good can come out of this, it's the culling of our generation's Rush Limbaughs/Alex Jones.

Ultimately, using and uploading and profiting off of YouTube is a privilege, not a right. If you're a true Capitalist, you respect the decisions and policies of a privately owned and operated corporation.

Everytime I see all these kids demanding that the advertisements on YouTube be distributed equally and fairly, indiscriminately, I throw up a little in my mouth. Do these Marxist understand anything about the economy?

I mean how else would you explain how these low-quality youtube personalities make a legitimate space for themselves as alternative media?

Not that I think let's players are legit alternative media, but they're akin to the now defunct shows on G4 that would just play games, talk about them and try to be entertaining. Plenty of Video Game content on youtube is legit reviews/consumer-reports type stuff though.

I've noticed lots of gaming channels going under or stopped posting to youtube with that monies drying up. Most of their videos aren't funny and they sound depressed as shit lately. The past month has led to gaming channels splitting into 2 groups. Those who've stopped giving a fuck now that they've lost all their money or channels running themselves into the ground trying to double or triple video output. Lots of them are trying to cover the costs with patreon. I'm going to be watching this all play out pretty closely. A big ebul corporation trying to silence any opinions or people they don't like by taking their money. I'm not trying to go /pol/ but this will have far more drastic implications than just some "career" youtubers losing everything they've gotten.

Well they had tremendous envy of youtube and saw it as a threat. So the old media signal boosted a semi-spurious story about how coke ads ran on a nazi post.

The ads were being run by a third party claiming content in the video, this fucker wasn't getting ad money but it triggered a panic and what everyone really hated was being spammed with Milo Yiannopoulos clips and who can blame them.

That shit really sunk Youtube's reputation as this little platform for vloggers and five nights at freddy's screamers.
So much of the quality content on Youtube came from channels that were small early on so I think the real danger is in how Youtube has been cutting off irregular uploaders and anyone with under 10k subs pretty much entirely.

Getting money from Youtube videos or Twitch streams is a privilege not a right. If people actually are calling this their "jobs" or "career" then they fucked up big time. Thats not the fault of Youtube, Twitch or any advertisers who dont want to be associated with these people

Yeah they should only give money to people that tow the line even if they get millions of views.

It's bullshit and youtube still has everyone by the balls.

Everyone jokingly says "lol time to upload to youporn" but I still think youtube has a vice grip on content streaming at this point and to abandon it would kill a content creator.

Do a little research into this whole thing and you can easily tell it's some retarded bullshit from start to finish. Even if it was a folly to dedicate their lives to being a youtuber it's complete bullshit for youtube to rip it all away the way that they're doing.

Of course it's a fucking job. They're selling their time and life for other people amusement. There are people in the world that are getting paid to hold a door, do you think this is more legit than making videos on the internet?

These people are making content for a website. They should be paid by that website to make more content. It's completely normal. Content creators are the product, not the client.

>Take your time and make something people want.
>Put it on a platform that will place ads on your content and host it on their website.
>You get paid nothing for your work. Literally not even a percentage anymore.

I'm not saying ad money should go 100% to the creators. Youtube gets your shit out there and actually puts ads on it. Maybe Pewdiepie shouldn't make millions or maybe he should make more. But demonetizing everything just because you're greedy or have a political agenda is fucked up. And it will and has already stated to run people off. Remember most people making bank off youtube are dumbass 20 somethings. Lots of them will throw away making 2-3k a month or more just because it if grinding them into the dirt.

You also work for far less than minimum wage by the way unless you have over 3-4 million subs right now. As it stands, you need 5 mil subs or more to make minimum wage for most channels. Because at 2+ mil subs you need employees, you also have to pay self-employment taxes and other governmental fees, you need to be in a network to even get to 2 mil subs in the first place that takes a cut of your money and pays you a month later after youtube pays you after a fiscal month etc. So while someone may rank on socialblade at 20k a month, they may see 4k a month and they are working 60-80 hours a week because Youtube stopped paying anything but long daily videos a while ago. So now you gotta dump out 2-3 20-40 minute videos a day. And that isn't just play vidya and stream it. That doesn't show the behind the scenes shit going on either.

It is like most artistic pursuits. You work your ass off and get paid 2 dollars and hour generally. But get taxed like your making 500k a year. It is all so fucking ridiculous. A factory job is a way better monetary prospect. So fuck off.

The whole thing is complete bullshit. If the whole coke hates nazi's shit was real, they wouldn't run ads on nazi shit. But every video on youtube still gets ads even if it is some cat video or something about denying the holocaust. So coke still gets their shit on nazi fucks but hurr they don't get money so it's cool! ;)

In reality though, most every youtube channel has went to patreon to fund themselves now.

That's a New England accent, isn't it?
Are they all deformed, privileged manchildren with no filters there?

It also doesn't sound like a NE/Mass accent.

Not sure where he's from. Gut says maybe Jersey, but I've seen mentions of WA online, so maybe Pacific North West.
