Is YouTube Dead

I thought to post something about YouTube if analyzed in perspective,
the subscribers to viewers count even on famous YouTube channels is
way off the specified amount of views getting per channel.

Is YouTube actually dead? this was the question raised in Youtube forum?
Well it has become a money generating to advertisements generating company
than purely content innovative media streaming company.

I have uploaded a video explianing is "Is Youtube dead" watch [removed]

Some major youtube channel owners might have this sentiment that youtube is "dead" due to their extremely aggressive and sometimes nonsensical application of the "advertiser-friendly" rule for channel content.

If channel owners can't reliably monetize their content, then youtube may be "dead" from the perspective of channel owners.

But I suspect that 98% of regular people know nothing about this. (Here is a good synopsis from the perspective of a youtube content creator.)

BTW I did not watch the video you linked.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

PewDiePie said, YouTube fixed his channel, but the views did tank earlier:

Youtube has been flooded with videos like "how Asian guys react to American horror movies" etc. as people are quick to make a few bucks here and there. We are starting to lose our creativity.

No way. Not even close.

Living as a step mom to a 10 year old boy has made me realize how popular (YouTube) it is to this specific demographic.

It's actually good the advertisers are taking charge since they are paying for it so basically Alex Jones is banned from the YT revenue program :D

he doesn't have to put his vids on YT tho, he can host them himself but i dont think he will like the bandwidth costs especially with HD content. It would basically negate any money he makes from selling his junk

I watch Youtube far more than I watch TV, or even Netflix. It's not going anywhere anytime soon.

Not dead. Just lack of creativity from popular content creators to get a lot views=more ads=more money.

If you can make good money from it, awesome for you. You are after all entertaining people and we pay our more establoshed entertainers a lot more.

Although sometimes you do find gems like good tutorials/lessons on anything, documentaries, and well done covers.

I did not watch your video.

If not for YouTube, I wouldn't have been able to laugh my azz off today watching the clip of some on-field security guard at the San Diego Chargers game stroking it heavy to the cheerleaders.
