    Does RPS get the shinies for ads in embedded Youtube vids?

    Does RPS get the shinies for ads in embedded Youtube vids?

    Because they annoy the hell out of me and I will happily blackhole them if ze money goes elsewhere.

    My understanding is that ads go toward whoever made the video (or Youtube), not who is linking to the video.
    Steam: Gundato
    PSN: Gundato
    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    Nu-uh, it goes to whoever files a complaint first. Burden of proof is on the uploader and while he doesn't give one all the ad revenue goes to the complainer.

    And that's why youtube is in the middle of a shitstorm this days.
