As someone who has a moderately successful YouTube channel, I can honestly say that YouTube is the worst website ever made. It is incredibly buggy. Years old, frequently reported bugs concerning video processing are still left unfixed. Many older videos have lost their 480p streams in a recent stream format switch. The automatic copyright ID system frequently misidentifies content, is openly abused by people claiming to be rightsholders when they're not, and Google automatically rules in favour of the supposed rightsholder with the penalty of losing too many appeals being that your channel gets banned. Every single time they change anything on the site, it gets worse. And any attempt to raise these issues with Google is met with complete silence.
Daniel Hardcastle, aka NerdCubed, a YouTube gaming channel with around 3mln subscribers, is someone whose only source of income is ad revenue from his YouTube videos. That is his day job. He has described this experience as working for a psychotic, incommunicative boss.
Yes, I'm sure the Channel 9 guys would love to be subject to this kind of abuse.
