Hoping that was sarcasm, but you never know. I'm sure some people really believe that.

If you don't think YouTubers should be paid for their videos, install an ad blocker on your browser of choice.

 

If you do think they should be paid, uninstall any ad blockers you may have.

 

Everyone wins.

Except the Youtubers right now, considering that adblock or no, many of their videos aren't available because of this claim junk.

What does adblock has to do with it? I have it on just to avoid them interrupting videos all the time. Is quite annoying.

He is saying that, since Youtubers make money from you watching and clicking advertisements, use adblock to not give them money if you feel they do not deserve it.

They should definitely make a percentage of whatever profit they get from the views, but not enough to live off of. The ratio should be 80-20 with 80 going back to the developers. I say that because the Let's Plays still give those out there that didn't know the game exist a glimpse of what they would have missed out on. 

 

True it could also give the people that were on the fence a look at how bad the game is, but at least they (the devs) are still making money from the lets plays. So all in all Let's Plays are good for both parties if both are getting paid.

I plan to post vids eventually of montages, lets plays, maybe reviews anyway. It would be nice to make cash from it in the process as long I follow guidlines from publishers or whoever.
