    thats a good question lol, my guess is that you technically need permission before making the videos in the first place? i don't know.

    If you add value to the videos you will be fine.

    So posting videos of you playing - not monetisable
    Posting videos of you talking about what you are doing and playing - monetisable

    But my advice is don't monetise your videos until you have a loyal viewer base who value your videos or the ads might put people off.

    Technically, all video of Clash of Clans gameplay is owned by Supercell and not allowed for monetization by others. However, it remains in their hands whether or not to seek out people monetizing their videos. If they file a claim with Youtube, you would not be able to benefit from it.

    this is basically it, however there are literally hundreds of thousands of monetised clash of clans views played per day ... probably half a million and more

    I recommend u don't monetize your content, because it will stunt the growth on your channel as many leave when adds come. Also, you will make next to no money. You get $1 per 1000 add views. Then you take into account the amount of people using add block, and other factors. you will be making $1 for around every 3000 views on tour videos. Is those few dollars worth it to you? But i don't know how to monetize your videos... Sorry.

    Every time this topic comes, I scratch my head... :eek:

    But yea, boils down to that "Do you need those few bucks ?"

    Although its nice to get rewarded for the vids you pump out, the are certain risk in getting your channel totally banned as well.

    Many Call of Duty players monetize their videos so there's no reason you can't do the same with Clash of Clans videos. However, the $5 you will make per video is very little and causes you to run the risk of being sued.
