"Monetize your videos on YouTube!" JimmyBOB! 4/4/12 11:10 AM
I just got this message on the YouTube uploads page, that says:
"Monetize your videos on YouTube!", "Get Started".

But, when I click on it, I get this:
"Signup Error. Visit the monetization tab in account settings at any time to sign up."

If I try to visiting the said tab, which links to "http://www.youtube.com/$monetization_url", it gets me to 404 Not Found. Help, please?

Does this URL work?

Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" JimmyBOB! 4/6/12 1:37 PM
The button started working all the sudden. Weird. Do all users have this option?
Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" PeggyK 4/6/12 2:33 PM
No, not all channels are offered the option to monetize.
Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" JimmyBOB! 4/7/12 12:01 AM
So, wait, which channels have that options? Like, what are the requirements?
Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" PeggyK 4/7/12 9:44 AM
YouTube has not shared what criteria they use to decide whether to invite a channel to be monetized. My guess is that having your channel in good standing is one requirement.

Make sure you aren't running AdBlock, NoScript or similar plugins, add-ons or extensions in your browser. 

Also try using a different browser.

Hi Peggy,

The most recent video I posted on youtube 2 days ago is still 'under review', my videos are usually monetised instantly and this video isn't different to the others. It is frustrating as the video has already had over 25,000 views.

Could you help me with this?

Thanks,

Jack (tubbytubbytubtubs)

Video review can take anywhere from a few hours to over a week. Nothing you can do but wait.
Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" beading4perfectionis 4/10/12 12:44 AM
I don't get that Peggy, I uploaded 2 vids on the same day, one is still under review and the other one was monitized right away. There must be some reason for that. I don't use addblock or any of the things you mentioned
Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" Brutus893 4/10/12 3:09 AM
I have sorted it now, this is what I did:

To see if there was a problem with my account, I uploaded a load of videos including the same one as I had the problem with. They were all monetised instantly which was good and proved there wasn’t a problem with the account.
Then I tried making the problematic video very similar to the identical re-uploaded video that monetised instantly. I removed all the tags and the video description. I then removed the monetisation and waited 5 minutes, and then I re-instated the monetisation and closed Firefox. I opened it about 5 minutes later and it was monetised! Just replaced the description and tags and done job.

Let me know if this works for you,

Jack

Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" TheGamerDaan 6/9/12 5:52 AM

Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" zH2sScR7 6/9/12 6:51 AM
yep, me too, tried the following variations:
Firefox on Ubuntu
Firefox on Windows
Chrome on Ubuntu
Chrome on Windows
Internet Explorer on Windows
same problem on all of them
Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" TheGamerDaan 6/9/12 10:08 AM
I did it on another network... that did the trick... maybe it has to do with your router's firewall
Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" 3agle 3ye 6/9/12 12:24 PM
I used a proxyserver, didn't work for me
Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" TheGamerDaan 6/10/12 1:18 AM
I checked my router, it has a log: It says: Blocked - NAT out failed
First packet in connection is not a SYN packet: TCP 192.168.x.x:PORT ->17.172.232.130:443 on ppp0
Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" stuartindigo 6/10/12 2:41 AM
I myself had the same problem (shows TC's aren't immune)!

If you are using a preference location for for suggestions  (Location at the bottom of the page) try setting this to "worldwide" - worked for me!
Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" zH2sScR7 6/10/12 5:34 AM
setting location to 'worldwide' worked for me too, thanks!
Re: "Monetize your videos on YouTube!" 3agle 3ye 6/10/12 11:01 AM
