How VidLii Could Survive and Thrive in the Future 1/2

How VidLii Could Survive and Thrive in the Future 1/2 - In this video I discuss how YouTube could fade away and VidLii could come in and succeed. Expect part 2 soon. Also, sorry for the bad audio. The editing (while it may not seem like much) actually caused After Effects to take around 63 hours to render unless I lowered the settings, which still took 6 hours and 42 minutes. As a sacrifice for decreasing render time, I lowered the quality of this video. Anyways, enjoy!

@edray1416 Jan is already planning on adding all of that I think, but you have to be 14 at least to be partnered and at least 18 to make money. I hope to become a partner, and if it lasts long enough for me to turn 18 and make money, I'd hope to do that too. If VidLii somehow becomes big enough for me to make enough money to have this as my job, I won't. I will keep my job just in case, and also because I wouldn't want this to become my living. I'd rather become a programmer and/or video game creator. I would still use VidLii in my spare time, but it would never consume my life. My view on this may change later, but those are my hopes for now.

You argued your points very well. My hope is that if VidLii explodes, the partnership program will come back. And if the site gets enough traffic to where Google Adsense can be applied, people like us can get lucrative deals just like the old YouTube partners (the partners that had to EARN their partnership). Back then, a YouTube partnership was lucrative because if your view count was high, you could make serious dollars. But YouTube screwed itself over by making it difficult for the partners to earn their revenue. A few partners were smart enough to keep their jobs for a sustainable living (Irategamer being one of them). What is your hope for VidLii in the future?

I’m glad I found Vidlii, and I hope that more people join the platform so Jan can collect more revenue and make Vidlii an even better experience.

@edray1416 Yeah, I don't remember if I covered learning from your mistakes in this video (part 2 coming soon) but I talked about how YouTube doesn't learn from their mistakes, and I wasn't saying that YouTube is in the same situation as MySpace was, it was just a good example of a dead social media website that is still up today. Also, this isn't a disagreeing point or anything, but I think it should be noted that Jan gained financially from selling VidBit, but now has no intentions of selling VidLii since he thinks the unnamed people who he sold it to basically "scammed" him and lied to him. Pretty sure that VidLii is in a stable path, and this video was focused more on YouTube staying alive but the next part focused more on the thriving part. I like the second half better and I hope that it was more clear and used more valid points. Thanks for the feedback, and I hope I'm not being too argumentative.

The problem with MySpace in 2009 was that Facebook cornered the social media market. Twitter was relatively small and other social media sites didn't really take off. MySpace was a great social media site before Facebook cornered the market. YouTube's $309 million loss in one day over a monetized racist video really screwed them over. While it does cost a lot to run a video upload site, if you have the smarts, learned from your financial mistakes, and know how to make a video upload site sustainable, you will last longer than your first round. Jan is smarter and he knows how to sustain the site. Let's hope he don't make any major financial mistake. It could cost him.

@cats9119 that's alright. I don't have an invite but I recommend trying to get into the Discord. Jan (the owner if vidlii and vidbit) is much more connected with his users than on vidbit, and he can explain to you why vidbit closed if you didn't already know. it wasnt really an accident (although im pretty sure he regrets it now) and I'm sure he won't make that mistake again. he doesnt have any problems running it right now, financial and non-financial, and he has alreadt=y run it once. he isn't lous. he also found a better host for the site

@knotsnappy unfortunately in my opinion. i don't really have the same faith in vidlii as i did with the original vidbit. but hey! who knows? vidlii just might survive!
