  • Maybe.
    Monetizing LL could also drive people away because it would be no more than a commercial link exchange.
    There's a happy balance.
    Why would anyone need a paypal account link to "Help them Out"?
    That's why we have jobs.
    This is where I go to veg when I'm not working.
    If I needed a second job I'd get back into Male Modeling.

  • BS. I don't want LL to be like YT. I like it being smaller. And here on LL people hope for views and votes mostly just because they want to feel like others enjoyed the video they uploaded. On YT everyone begs for views and "likes" because they're after money. Whenever that happens here, I won't want to hang around anymore.

    And get a freakin' REAL account.

    Probably my last comment on your stuff. Bye.

      I have a habit that I've adopted years back and not sure if it's healthy or not but here goes....uhmmm..okay so a new person shows up and posts a Yoursay,if he/she doesn't say Liveleak within the first minute I go to their profile and sure enough they just made the account and I auto dismiss it and don't care at all about what they have to say and move along..some are really easy to spot though where you don't have to wait the full min which is nice.

      Lol, we're Liveleak snobs ;-)

      I'm fine with being able to embed YT stuff because it allows LLers to upload larger files than LL's 100 mb limit, but I don't want the site to be another YT. I like the relative smallness. I mean look right here - Hayden replied to my comment! He is the founder/owner. That could never happen on YT. I like our "little" site just how it is.

      Venus is a good example of the YT sewer overflowing into our site. He's flooding our site. Because he has a long history of loving LL? No. He's trolling for views and subscribers so he can get a bigger check from YT.

  • I don't go to YouTube cuz I'm afraid I'll run into more of those StevenVenus vids.

  • That's what we need, more YT type videos, with baited titles, of teenagers laughing at each other.

  • Liveleak has a very 'exclusive' feel to it. I don't see being bigger than YT as a good thing.

  • Not as long as the mods keep featuring reposts and then marking new videos as repost. They've lost a lot of good posters due to stupid shit like that.

    Not to mention the search function needs help

  • Youtube is HUGE, Youtube has Google as owners which means unlimited backing and no threat of losing advertising. LiveLeak cannot and will not overtake YouTube, we'll just do what we can rather than worry about climbing that mountain.

    • Hello God of live leak, I can not tell you what an honor and ego boost this is knowing that I was heard by one of the bosses, BTW and FYI I come cheap you can have an exclusive contract with me for say ten bucks a video lol

      In all seriousness though money doesn’t mean that much once you have a certain amount for example say you and I are competing in a bike race, and a top of the line bike only cost 60k , you are worth 5 million, what does it matter if I have 500 million?

      On the web bot More..

    • @wefindout HAHAHA, no gods here, mate. Please believe me when I say LiveLeak and YouTube / Google are most assuredly not on an even footing. We've always avoided losing control of the site and the sort of investment required to even come close to being Youtube would involve a complete loss of that control. Not to mention we've never harboured any dreams of being that big to be honest. Still, we always listen to what members have to say and monetisation is something we've looked at several times More..

    • @LL_Hayden Man you allow me to monetize my videos and give me freedom of speech and I will bust my ass for you, I will give you the most epic bad ass shows ever, no bullshit! Plus I'll even
      pay to get more traffic to this site out of my own pocket.

    • @LL_Hayden You wouldn't settle with selling liveleak to google for 750 million like the inventors of youtube? haha

      That is a tough decision...kinda, sorta, not really.

      Cheers Hayden!

    • @slideordie24 We could have sold a long time ago but not for that sort of fairy tale cash. With that money I could do so many terrible things *stares wistfully into the distance*

  • Maybe when LL 3.0 comes out...

    All 18+ videos will be banned by that time and so I will agree - LL will become a second YouTube. It's well on it's way there - Now.

    Please Remeber one Simple Fact - EVERYTHING IS ABOUT MONEY$$$

    LL is about Money as well....If the opportunity presents itself - Where the Owners stand to make a bunch of $$$ Why wouldn't they take that option - I know I would!

  • Pat Condell posts his commercial links. But I think the site makes an exception for him because he can rake in 10,000 views in a day, which makes sense from a business standpoint.

  • How about you make an actual video, then we can start to talk about your topic.

    Just as a hint you need a VIDEO camera in order to create one. Not just a mic.

    But if it makes you feel better, I got through 39 seconds before stopping the clip this time.

    Just sayin...

  • Just like YT has those people saying "Beavis and Butthead brought me here"Blackhawk brought me here and I'm sorry I watched his video in hindsight.You prob have the same pre-recorded message but change out whatever site your pitching to.
