Hi I am thinking about starting a YouTube lets play channel, I want to make lets play videos upload them to YouTube and monetize them, but before I do that I have a question can you monetize let's play videos? I mean YouTube is loaded with lets play videos and I see Ads on most of them so it's cool yes?

YouTube has released an official statement regarding gameplay footage and copyright:

Quote:We know we have a lot of partners who love and want to post videos relating to games, so we wanted to share some tips to help you monetize gaming content.

As always, you should ensure that you have all the necessary rights to commercially use all content in a video before you submit it for monetization. Video game content may be monetized depending on the commercial use rights granted to you by licenses of video game publishers. Here are some tips!

● Check the video game publisher’s license agreement (Terms of Use, EULA etc). Some publishers allow you to use all video game content for commercial use and state that in the license agreement.
● Get written permission. Some publishers may allow you to monetize videos containing their game content if you reach out and ask.
● Videos showing software user interface may only be monetized if you’ve signed a contract with the publisher or paid a licensing fee.
● If you do have the appropriate license, submit your documentation to YouTube in a timely manner. If you do not have the appropriate license from a video game publisher, your videos must contain minimal use of video game or software user interface and be as informative and educational as possible - commentary must follow the live action shown step by step.
● Use your video metadata wisely! Use relevant, accurate titles, tags and descriptions for your videos.
● Make sure your dialogue is family friendly, so fans of all ages can enjoy your video.

A final reminder: Simply buying or playing a video game does not grant you the copyright or permission to monetize. To earn revenue from videos from the game, you need commercial rights.

For additional information about monetizing video game content, as well as what YouTube requires in the documentation you submit, please refer to the Help Center.

If I would you I would abandon this idea. You can see it is starting to become a problem and I wouldn't be happy to find out that I can't monetize lets play videos after I have uploaded 200 of them

Be careful with monetizing "let's play" content! I am pretty sure all those YouTube channels dedicated to video games either request permission to or pay video game developer!
