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.

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.

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.
