The project is already up and running in the US and is now being extended to other countries, starting in the UK. In the US some contributors are already earning thousands of dollars each month from their films, according to the video-sharing site.
The amount that is earned will depend on the number and popularity of the videos.
Those signing up to the YouTube Partner Programme, as it is called, will be offered a share of the revenue generated from advertisements that run next to their video. YouTube is not disclosing the exact details of the scheme, but does say that those making “several thousand dollars a month” are regularly producing videos with over one million views.
YouTube hopes to expand the Partner Programme to the rest of Europe soon.
