i think it would be interesting to actually get creators and advertisers to collaborate, discuss or whatever once in awhile, some sort of way for both parties to have a certain sense of understanding of one another. to you know, like keep it a consistent thing.

Casey, I know you have made films previously and said you wanted to concentrate on youTube, but do you think one day you might make another movie? I reckon you could make such an amazing feature... something with a deep meaning but thats thrilling, entertaining & innovative. Something that makes people think and sticks with them. I would watch it 1000%.

Great interview Casey.

I am not a Logan supporter, or even subscriber. I think we are having the wrong conversation. This is about the platform. What that moron did, accidentally in his pursuit of views, is start a conversation. Mental Illness is real, suicide is real. We should put our effort behind figuring that out instead of worrying about the platform.

He never said if youtube would pay youtubers for monetized content they are demonitizing IE their videos are monitored you tube ran commercials but they didn't hit the $100 threshold before they cut off monitization.

What an uninformative interview this was. Fucking waste of time

OK WAIT WAIT WAIT!!! It's not about Youtube, it's about "YOU" tube, hence the name Youtube.. For youtube to say what they want, they have destroyed the platform. Let's say goodbye to Youtube. I personally don't need Googles money. The change will be for me "No Comments", No Thumbs", No "youtube page". I will just embed videos in my own page and monetize with a third party like AMAZON and a few others. What I have learned about the internet is to never have your eggs all in one basket. And last but not least the sweet hypocrisy of Youtube crying freedom of speech.

Casey out here softballing the people that pay his wages, not a surprise. These corporate shills will never truly question the corporation. Essentially, what is the difference between the "iron curtain" and a corporation which is, for the most part, totally unapproachable and dictates its output on the whims of idiotic advertisers?

It seems like they're friends so Casey didn't wanna ask tough questions nothing was gained from this to me. How do you have freedom of speech when you don't get monetized. Doesn't make sense

🤔 Listening to this bloke say that it's hard for him to communicate with creators when all he has to do is upload a video to YouTube.
MELODIES TV (1 day ago)
It has been over 4 months and channels are still yet to be reviewed and approved for monetization. Can anyone state when monetization of channels is returning?
Blacktommer35 (1 day ago)
We didn't want to make a rash decision demonetising Logan Paul's video, because a lot of livelihoods depend on that. Lucky are all the other creators who have their video's demonetised without even a single human looking at 1 sec of their videos.

Brilliant video. Thanks YouTube and Casey. Being brought up with tech and media, like Casey, I love to watch content from around the world. Different societies, ways of life, scenery, cities etc, and one day, i'd love to share my life with the world. I feel the terms YouTube set are understanding, logical and most of all, fair. Sure some people will disagree, but that's why we're all here. Keep up the great vid's Casey :)

If there isn’t any favoritism in YouTube, HERE YOU GO, lol. Casey can act as if he’s helping the community but I mean we know that’s bullshit when he’s done it before for a little over 2 mil right. This is baiting journalism at its best. It’s what lawyers do. “you help me, I’ll sway in a way that will help you and it’ll end great for the both of us”. Casey shits the bed, gets jumped out of his own company and now he’s concerned for the small content creators of YouTube... Geeez! cold as ice.
Jon Skjeseth (1 day ago)
"freedom of speech"?!? oh, so thats why you demonetize news and political shows, YouTube...i dont think you know what that word means.... "freedom of opportunity"?!? for who? those oblige to your silly rules to create content thats "family friendly"? youtube need some shake-up in their leadership....CLEARLY!!!!
Loved this +CaseyNeistat. I've been thinking and thinking about how to make a proper channel instead of the lame vid's I posted years ago. This just makes me want to get in, do it and be the best I can. All the best.

Milton2k (1 day ago)
Casey's channel was the perfect channel to do this. Although there are bigger channels I think his type of channel is the most appropriate one. Pewds channel with all the controversies and its often lightheartedness is out I guess. Mark's and Jack's are gaming channels mostly. H3H3 and Boogies are a bit little. I wonder why they did not go with Phil. Maybe he would be too incisive. I really hope they redo this with Phil though.
Milton2k (1 day ago)
Quite a great video. Robert seems quite honest. I am sure they are aiming for that but I dig it nonetheless.

More female creators? What is he smoking? Half the big channels on YouTube are run by women, What inequality here is there to fix?

"we would like more and more female creators" Why?
LIGER ZERO (1 day ago)
Great, now they are pretending that woman have a history of YouTube oppression too. ''We want to see more female creators''. *Facepalm Women are 49% of Content creators (2015 statista)
gjaddajg (1 day ago)
Women and blacks are _NOT_ discriminated against on YouTube, so why promote them over white men? Why give them an unfair advantage and discriminate against white men? Equality is the goal - not equity.
gjaddajg (1 day ago)
1) Freedom of opportunity: but not freedom of _equal_ opportunity, because they're promoting women and black people, giving them an unfair advantage - fuck cis white men, am I right? 2) Freedom of speech: as long as you're a left-wing feminist ideologue or you'll get demonetized or banned 3) Freedom of information: as long as you're a left-wing feminist ideologue or your videos will be age restricted, not show up in search results or recommended or even just be hidden/removed
gjaddajg (1 day ago)
YouTube hates white men (because it's a feminist organization) so now they're going to promote women and people of color, giving them an unfair advantage.
Elena HG (1 day ago)
Thank You Casey and Paul for sharing this chat with the entire YouTube community! Casey you did a great job representing and voicing the concerns of the creators! Being a female creator who has educational content on sustainability, mindfulness and green cosmetics what do I need to do to get that much needed extra push Robert mentions on this interview? Thanks!

"We need more female creators". Who cares? Stop pushing this diversity shit! There are way more makeup channels and unfunny female "comedians" like Lele Pons around, then needed. The reason male-driven channels are more popular is because they are more interesting, not because the world hates women on purpose. Stop with the forced quotas. Let them earn it by merit if you are all for equality.

I am a small youtuber and I am so glad I just watched this. I just subscribed too you. I am also going too share this in my small youtuber groups so that they understand why all of this is happening. Good video thank you for making it.

At least Czechoslovakian government did not let you suffer for cursing out loud like YouTube does. His words of "we support freedom of speech" is complete dog shit.
Thibault Dumas (1 day ago)
I think it's a very good thing to do. This interview is a good one. The questions and answers kinda look soft to me but it's only the beginning. I hope this action will push YouTube to communicate more directly with the creators. This video could have been huge. It was hype so of course it's disappointing. But it's still a big first step and it was necessary to make the platform better

How to be self entitled 1: Start a YouTube channel 2: Start making money from the YouTube channel 3: Claim that you do it as your hobby, not for the money 4: Complain non stop when YouTube doesn't pay you for one week

I think matpat or Philip de Franco would be a better interviewer. I like Casey but he is not the best for this, and also, the YouTube guy didn't said much.
I really think Youtube should have a BTS team like daily vlogs, it can really help bridge the communication gap between them and the creators

In the latter half of 2017 - YT offered a Women in Comedy scholarship. There were 80 women around the world selected. If YT valued female voices, why was this amazing content not featured and celebrated widely?
JAJAJAJAvi (1 day ago)
Whats the deal with all these people blaning youtube for not gettinng views/subs? Thebig names on youtube are successful because they upload interesting content. If you dont have views or subs it may be because your content is not very original/interesting. Not everyone is entitled to youtube fame.

People should support sites like dailymotion and help them compete with youtube, youtube basically has no competition at the moment thats why they couldn't careless to abandon small creators from earning a buck or two, i found dailymotion because i was frustrated with YouTube's new rules and regulation. PS reaction channels stay away you are not Content Creators.
Lifeplasty (2 days ago)
I personally feel this Logan Paul should have been banned from Youtube and demonetised. That should have been an immediate and final response to his outrageous video. It would have served as a deterrent for such sensationalist grotesque and  inhumane content. People on his payroll should have censored the content so they all deserve to be out of a job.
Christy Sanford (2 days ago)
Maybe to make up and allow a woman to be "creative," Robert, you can offer Emma Gonzalez free tech support to make a significant youtube video. Why was a lie about the Parkland School students allowed to be viewed over 200,000 times? That's like watching a public stoning in a street. There is no "contact" person at youtube. I guess youtube is too busy to be responsible.

I lost my monetization and I am the last person to post spam and offensive videos. I produce hight quality videos and the fact that I am categorized together with channels that don't follow the rules makes me really mad at YouTube. So far, I got around 30 dollars a month and while that doesen't sound much, it still helped me to finance some of my video making equipment. Shame on you YouTube. Makes big and already rich channels richer and screws us small channels over. Will I at least get my 25 dollars that I earned so far this month and last half month? I am ready to subscribe to you people if you subscribe to me.That might sound childish but you gotta do what you gotta do to get those 1000 subs.

🤔 so... it seems the audio was taken from every mic that is on every different camera. I’m surprised he isn’t wired or a boom wasn’t used. Maybe there where technical problems, but it’s pretty distracting. Anyways. Love your videos and the quality of your videos (except the audio of this one ;) thank you for all your amazing videos!!! ✌️

The truth is YouTube doesn't have to pay anyone anything. If you are lucky enough to get their advertising money you should feel lucky. They are the ones that own the eco system. They have the platform and creators are pulling from their viewers. Simple as that. Consider yourself lucky if you are getting money for making videos. I feel creators are slightly ungrateful.

HH Impact TV (3 days ago)
I'm happy trying to help inspire children and teenagers on my channel and fortunate enough to have a good loyal following from our local community in New York. But I don't see anything productive YouTube will do to help other smaller channels grow, especially channels that help educate and improve the lives of many, and their income depends on creating content. The incentives are given more to established creators they like to promote (especially those vloggers with sensationalized content like Ricegum, the Paul bros, Fousey) or prefer (like he said, "We want more females") instead of smaller creators who are struggling to get their channel more exposure.
paigegaree (3 days ago)
"My favorite content is where I am learning something new" - what about all of the hidden LGBT videos that you've been demonetizing? "I want more female creators" there are a TON of them out there that you are censoring. He is GREAT at telling us what we want to hear, but where is the action?

I sure hope I can get my channel up to the requirements. but I will agree that the new requirements will make small channels like mine turn it up a little, Instead of just filming stuff and uploading it I find my self doing more research and improvement. I have a long way to go, but little by little each day I learn something new and try to implement it into my channel. thank you!!!
Dilandau88 (3 days ago)
I have a friend who is a technical at YouTube. To all the creators bitching about losing their monetization, he informed me that 95% of them were making less than $4 a month. Boohoo. Stop bitching.
EMRIFFEY (3 days ago)
Thank you guys for sharing this. As a new creator, it has been tough to figure out YouTube as a whole. It can even be intimidating and difficult when it comes to creating relevant, but honest content. This was very insightful, as far as seeing what YouTube is all about and hearing what they stand for as a platform. This is so great! Thank you for sharing.
