Youtube Monetization
Will youtubers be able to monetize videos of Ark, such as let's plays and trolling videos and that sort of thing?

I like the free advertisement but I don't like people making money just playing a game. They are making a profit off of other people's hard work.

Why shouldn't they earn money they are entertaining people just like movie actors, and the dev get free advertisement so they help selling there game for free so i think it's good that they can make money out of youtube.

Actors worked hard filming their shows and movies. I don't think they would like people making money by posting videos of their movie on YouTube.

We will be happy for you to make money off of the game we made. If it helps to make gaming in general have a more valuable ecosystem, then our job is done. We want to bring games to people. If more people play games because they see people on Youtube make videos, and those people on Youtube can afford to make videos because they can monetize their gameplay, then the whole cycle is richer due to that.

That's what really matters. The gaming community as a whole being richer.

OK...You guys..ARE YOU REAL!

If only all developers were like this the gaming industry would be so much better off than it is

The goodwill created by a happy content creator or streamer is almost priceless in the market at the moment.

I apologize for being a pain, but I'm a youtuber and really want to cover myself here. I would like to verify that I have the legal right to record and post footage of me playing your amazing game on my channel with the understanding that the video will be monetized. I know you answered this already, but as I said, I would really like to cover myself and not be sued by either your company or youtube. I would really like to avoid being sued. It's probably unpleasant and I don't want to know firsthand. Thank you.
