YouTube Partners
« on: May 13, 2012, 01:58:38 PM »
I recently got on the YouTube boat. I started a channel and uploaded my first video.
When I created my account it asked if I wanted to be a YouTube Partner.

Wheat is the difference in regular YouTube and the Partner program?

Should I switch to the Partner Program?

Also does anyone know of a good video editing program for MAC, I prefer a free program.

1. You can change your subscribe icon and monetize your Youtube channel. I am not a partner, so I don't know more than that.

2. Isn't iMovie included? Kdenlive is a great open source video editor for GNU/Linux and there's also a mac version of it. I don't know if it's the same as the GNU/Linux version, but try it out.

I tried signing up for the YouTube partner program, but I get a message saying "my country isn't eligible for the YouTube partner program". I live in South Carolina.  :o

I went to the bottom of a YT page and my country is set to "Worldwide". I try to change it, but United States isn't listed in the country options, only the UK and UAE.

Has anyone dealt with this before? I just posted my first video on Sunday and I'm up to 8500 views so far and I'd like to straighten this out before I post my second video.

Thanks.

Go to your channel's feed page and on the right margin you can change "about me". Try to change your country there instead.
