Here’s another way how you can make money from online videos. is a service that allows you to create your own video site from videos you found on YouTube, Metacafe, AOL Video and others.

You can also upload your own video and create a branded video channel that you control. Here’s an example of a Video Channel created using provides upload, storage and free bandwidth. You’ll be able to create your own video community and generate revenue through Google AdSense or

So how do you actually make money from this?

Members make money from 50/50 revenue sharing on the advertising displayed on your site. The type of advertising messages shown on Magnify sites are

  • Text Links and Banner Ads Magnify shows contextual advertising messages in the margins of some pages.
  • Integrated Advertising Some videos syndicated from third-party hosting services contain integrated advertising. (For example, videos hosted by Revver include an advertisement after the end of the video.)
  • Video Pre-Roll A few Magnify sites are currently testing a pre-roll offering that plays a 10-30 second video advertisement before some video views.

So to earn money with Magnify and AdSense for example, you can enter your AdSense affiliate ID in Magnify members area. Your AdSense affiliate ID will then be used half of the times that a AdSense ad is shown on your site. The overall revenue share is thus 50% to you and 50% to Magnify.

Your AdSense affiliate earnings are recorded at Google, reported through Google’s AdSense affiliate interface, and paid to you directly by Google according to their terms and conditions.

You can use your own domain name for your Magnify site to further integrate your video channel with your own brand. This is what Shawn Collins did which allowed him to create Affiliate TV literally in minutes.

Some of the features include the ability to customize your video pages with built-in templates and admin tools, add a blog into your channel, view site statistics, and more.
