How to monetize your gaming videos

This post has not been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

In an effort to help other aspiring video game video editors and to respect the wishes of copyright owners, A small group of awesome people and I compiled a list of publishers and developers who allow us to legally monetize videos using footage from their games.

Over the last several months, I’ve done many searches, watched videos from other editors and even contacted gaming developers and publishers directly to devise the best way to legally monetize the video game videos we create at Alloy Seven. I compiled the list below with information I gathered from these entities directly, from websites and from other video gurus who’ve done similar research.

No one wants to be placed in a situation where their YouTube channel gets suspended or removed because they improperly monetized a video. With that in mind, please know that the accuracy of this information is of paramount importance. If you see anything here that you know to be factually incorrect, please comment to let me know. While I plan to work smart to keep this page up-to-date, I make no promises that this information will be current or accurate at the time of your reading–since all listed companies reserve the right to change their policies at any time. Rest assured, though, that I will update the page as information becomes available to me (so check back often for updates). Also, feel free to chime in if you want me to add a publisher or developer to the list that interests you.

List of developers and publishers that allow or prohibit video game footage monetization.
