Nick Eh 30 invited Ryan Wyatt of YouTube Gaming to his show to do an interview about gaming at YouTube. Here's a quick break down of the key points.
Seeing what Google Stadia offers, and what they are planning with their release, it won't be immediate. But they will take over this space (even though I couldn't care about it).
I doubt it, the way youtube treats their content creators I don't see this happening anytime soon
Exactly. The gaming section of YouTube has been one of the hardest areas hit during the past few years in terms of monetization. Plus copyright claims are a problem with certain companies and certain games.
Twitch is not better they ban users for the tiniest things, yet allow people they are friends with to stream regardless of consequences.
I doubt it will kill Twitch Youtube is like a copyright nazi when it comes to games. If one of your videos gets a copyright claim it's either banned in certain countries or it won't be allowed world wide.
That's kind of the point if you infringe on the work of other people.
Their view of "infringement" is very different than other platforms. Creating content based on a game for example, is considered in most circles derivative content, not stealing.
It all depends on the situation.
@Veneno Streaming a game on Youtube just to have a copyright claim on it because of the in game music is stupid. I use to stream to Youtube I played Spiderman got copyright claims because of in game music so I stopped and stuck with Twitch. If you play GTA with the radio on bang copyright claim on Youtube Twitch only mutes the game music from the radio if you have a VOD and pretty sure Mixer does the same as Twitch. Twitch will take down the music if a band like AC/DC files a copyright claim against that streamer using their music without permission.
YouTube for sure
Can't even play copyrighted music on your stream for Youtube. Twitch will mute small portions of your vods but you can still stream with it.
Youtube gaming? LMFAO! Youtube has a long long looooong way to go before it could leave a scratch let alone be a killer in gaming.
Not a chance.
YouTube is pretty crap lately. Advertising content from 5 years ago to a very active account seems odd. Filled with adverts every 20 seconds. Forcing you with that "want a YouTube premium monthly trial?" That's without the content creator side of things.
YouTube Gaming has been a thing for many, many years. And Twitch has only thrived. Even YouTube's own gaming content creators have jumped ship TO Twitch. So how on Earth can anyone think it's a threat? The "Threat" has been over for a while now. Twitch won.
Will they actually ban the thots unlike Twitch?
Not with their copyright system the mess it currently is.
I hope Nick goes back to streaming Tlou when part 2 comes out instead of trash ass Fortnite.
No if Twitch is going the route it's going Twitch will kill itself.
