I heard about this a couple of weeks ago about how popular it is to watch these YouTube videos of other people playing the game.

Very popular! There is a hosting site called Twitch that I absolutely love. When I don't have time to play and I need to get work done, I turn on Twitch and either look for a specific game or one of the host that I'm subscribed to and watch...or have on as background noise while I work. What's cool is that these cats make nice revunue just for playing their games online and it's all live. What you see on YouTube is basically the hosting uploading their Live Streams from Twitch and dumping them on YouTube to attract potential subscribers over on Twitch as Subscribers have to pay $5 per month. But with there $5 they are able to play the host in whatever game he has running at the moment. There are other incentives to join as well, but you get the idea and the more subscribers you get, the fatter your paycheck becomes. You do however have to split the money you bring in. Some of it going to Twitch for their services and some of it to advertising. Not sure what the percentage breakdown is as I need to investigate that part a bit more.

I love the idea so much that I'm actually contemplating opening a Twitch account myself. It's easy money for doing something you aleady do. At the moment I watch Live Streams via the 'Unofficial" Twitch Channel on Roku. That's one of my goto channels now. The Unofficial Channel is not to be confused with the Official Channel that you make money off of. It's a fanmade channel that allows regular folk the ability to watch while inside of Roku.
