"Repurposing someone else's content" - Not true, what to do now?
0
My monetization was disabled months ago, because:
"Repurposing someone else's content without adding significant original commentary or educational value"

I'm sure they think my test video(s) on a different channel was the original one. My mistake, i know. It was just faster to upload to the channel what is always logged in.

I was rejected for monetization, despite deleting all possible videos on my "test" channel. They don't even tell me which video was detected as "stolen".

Now i'm stuck. I should just give up this channel? It's not possible to contact them, so i can't explain the situation.
I won't delete my videos, because some of them (and not even the finished version) was uploaded first to one of MY different channel.

What is "Battlefield 1942"? If it is a video game and you are not the developer, then you certainly are repurposing someone else's content.

Yes like Hypno said. Everything I saw on your channel came from a video game. If you do not add enough extra value with in depth commentary and edits. YT see it as reused content and they will not want to monetize that.

This is one of the first videos a reviewer will look at a it is just game-play without commentary.

This is a best moment series. My first videos aren't that good, but i worked days on every video. The pacing, what scenes comes after a certain scene, how long is the video... and well what is the scene about. All counts. If i add 2 more seconds to a certain scene, people might find it boring a close it.

Even the video where i show a graphics mod. Basically i made the whole mod too and made a comparison video for it.

So i wouldn't say it's that simple and i'm sure it's not about the content, youtube knows more about these things. There are dozens of even more simple channels with monetization on.

The title for my demonization says: Reused content. Which officialy means:  
  • Reused content. This is content that doesn’t provide significant original commentary, or educational value. It may also mean that we’ve identified that large portions of your channel either completely match other content, or are noticeably similar. Examples include:
    • Third-party videos stitched together with minimal to no changes
    • Third-party content compiled without a narrative
    • Content uploaded somewhere else first
    • Content uploaded many times by multiple users

Which isn't true. I'm still sure that youtube made a mistake. They think i stolen my own videos from my own other channel (which wasn't 100% the same and it's deleted anyway). And there is no way to communicate with them.

All of the video games clips are Reused content that was not made by you. All of the audio is also Reused content.

You must transform that Reused content with commentary and not just edits to have a chance at passing review to monetize.

Right now you just cut up someone else's content and want to call it yours. You are not adding enough extra value to do that.

"All of the video games clips are Reused content that was not made by you. All of the audio is also Reused content."

Not true. I recorded them and i edited them. Audio not mine? Then all gameplay channels should be demonetized just because of that. Also i modded the game, so it looks different, the whole textures are changed by me, which makes it look totally reworked in videos too.

"You must transform that Reused content with commentary and not just edits to have a chance at passing review to monetize."
Wrong. Youtube has no statement like this. A meaningless commentary has no more values than edits like mine. With this thinking another part of youtube should be demonetized too.

"Right now you just cut up someone else's content and want to call it yours. You are not adding enough extra value to do that."
Not true. My gameplay sessions, my records, my edits, my uploads, my modded game. Value means a lot of things.
From an artistic standpoint i make complex edits to make the video interesting or funny for people. I need to gather thousand hours of gameplay videos to just make a 3 min video.
Or Again. 5 sec clip instead of 6 sec clip means a lot in a video like this, i need to edit these for days to have the desired video i want. Value is relative and i'm sad if youtube thinks in a simplistic way.

If that is what you want to believe.

That's fine.

But YT does not want to monetize such content anymore.

Because it see it as  "Repurposing someone else's content without adding significant original commentary or educational value"

Look. I have a random channel i didn't upload a video for more than 2 years. I made some Reshade profiles for games. (It's just minor tweaks for games.) 100% pure boring gameplay videos. And that channel has still active monetization.

There are bunch of very low effort videos with less views, etc, but monetization on. I already explained why is is potentially disabled and i get no help in that. You talk about audio and random stuff like if it's 2010 and people have no idea about yt.

At least you will understand why when your second channel gets demonetized.

That channel won't get demonetized, at least not for that reason.

My channel wasn't demonetized until i made the mistake and uploaded some test videos to one of my unused channel first. It's obvious that youtube detected this and now i'm stuck, despite deleting the "original" video. I want help in this situation, no need random ramblings.

And with my other channel alone i proved that i'm right, so obviously all you can do is a random harsh answer because you lost arguments.
I will try to send email to youtube and ask in reddit then. Thank you.
