[BETA] Members-only videos for Channels with Channel Memberships!


Inggris What’s up insiders we have some exciting product updates to channel memberships And I’m sitting here with the expert. Okay, really? Good Baba. How’s it going? Hey, everyone I’m Uli I’m a product manager based in Zurich and I work on memberships yes, so muli is the person who understands general memberships inside and out and Talk to us about what is sort of the latest and greatest feature that you have available Yeah, so we are really excited to share that we recently announced Members Only videos, which is a new video setting where creators could set Used to be unlisted private public now. There’s a new setting you can set a video to be members Only what that means is you can create a video that’s only shareable with members if if a member wants to watch it great If another non-member happens to find the video, they won’t be able to watch it But they’ll get a nice welcome message encouraging them to join your channel if they do want to watch the video Members Only videos this seems It seems like a pretty natural and obvious feature talk to us about how you got here Yes, so since we announced memberships last year at Khan 2018, we’ve been seeing creators use memberships in all kinds of ways But the most used perks that we’ve seen is by far videos Which makes sense because creators that’s what they know best, obviously So the different things we’re seeing are as perks of creators offering early access to videos is one really popular perk Bloopers behind the scene so basically any type of content that’s really lightweight to create But members really appreciate because they want to go more close to the to the Creator So we’ve saw that happening kind of organically and what creators were doing. We’re using on listed videos Yeah Because there wasn’t any better way to do it What also is happening is for some of our creators members were sharing those videos with non-members I was gonna say unlisted is not great because then once that link is out there anybody People aren’t paying habit, but now yes, so finally now creators can safely offer it as a paid perk because yeah You can’t watch it unless you paid So inspired by you basically what creators we’re doing already. We monetize it. We made it like a proper feature in studio Excellent. I’ve been using Members Only video on my personal gaming channel. And when I go to use it, it says beta beside it So talk to us about that. Sure So there’s two reasons we call it beta first of all, it’s actually available to any creator that has channel membership So it’s available to everyone The reason we call it beta one is you can only create it in studio beta today you can use it on can’t do it on mobile So what you need to do is you go to uploads beta And you can set it to members only there or you can upload it anywhere you want and then you go to the video list In studio beta and set it to members only there The second reason is to actually send out the video release it to your members You need to also post it in the community tab We’ve built like a flow that makes it super easy to do that But you still need to actually post it and we think that makes it also more personalized for your members So it’s nice you can add a little message and make them feel a bit more special when you share the video Yeah and slight nitpick on that when he says post is a community post We mean a Members Only community posts to actually publish your Members Only videos exactly So you have been testing this out with creators for quite some time What are some best practices or some cool things that you’ve been seeing with Members Only videos? Yeah, so as usual when we develop a feature we have certain ideas of how creators are going to use the stuff we build but Then we launch it and we see that creators are like much more creative than we ever will be Yeah So we’ve been learning a lot from creator since we launched the creators are creating publicly lists that link all of them early videos together Yeah, and then they feature it on the Home tab of their channel page so at the top shelf So basically any user that comes if they remember if they’re not a member They come to the channel page and they see the trailer and then they see a shelf of member-only videos At the top and obviously they make some cures and we’re seeing a lot of new members joined through this funnel So that’s number one number two We’re seeing creators do early access to videos And so what they do is let’s say your schedule is every Thursday new video on the Thursday You’ll post your video and you’ll say whoever wants to get next video Next week’s video can join become a member and then you link to it at the beginning of the video so in a card or in your description link And and basically, yeah, you create like a lot of people want to watch the video next week, obviously So it’s driving a lot of new members for that for that crater for the creators that are doing that they release Next week’s video then release it today for members exactly. So they really are doing early access. Yes It’s like a week ahead of time Which is not always easy for creators to schedule but they’re managing to do it really well and again, this is like the single perk that’s Changed their trends so they were kind of growing nicely But when they start they tripled the number of members within a few weeks of doing that the what yeah, it’s been pretty Holy I was that coordinating enough to know my content schedule like weeks in advance good for whoever this channel is good for you Exactly. Yeah, it’s also a good way for Channels to talk about memberships talk about the memberships offering and a good way to pitch the different perks without necessarily Highlighting the fact of like hey join with a monthly subscription and contribute money to me It’s just saying like hey, we have these perks. We’ve got this great video content that’s out there exactly exactly It basically solves the problem of needing to like ask for money because you’re asking for money interesting Hey created this video if you’re interested go watch it. That’s really casual. Yeah, yeah All right. So a hard question a hard question for Mulyani He knows this is coming because I asked him this all the time, but I want to get it on camera for all of you What we’re talking about today is Members Only uploads What about channels who live stream great question, so we’re actually really excited That we’re also working on him early live streams in parallel. We are going to lunch live streams. Remember only live streams into beta Very soon. Yeah, so that’s coming and then the full lunch is gonna follow probably in a few months But definitely that works and we’re really excited. Yes So live streamers it is coming and I’m so excited for the opportunity to to try this out you know, so as Channels who are thinking about memberships and like their their current content strategy and then they’re they’re members only content strategy Do you have any guidance in terms of you know are these two different work streams that we’re thinking about? This is one like how should we think about this? Yeah, I think the the way to kind of make it as easy as possible The Creator is to actually try to reuse as much as possible the regular videos that you already uploaded. Okay? um So instead of having to like think about new content for members keep doing what you’re doing and just try to take the room like the rest of the content that you didn’t make that didn’t make It into the video Yeah, and give that to members and and it might sound like it’s lower quality but that’s actually doing really well with members because again, it’s more it feels more special and kind of Exclusive hope you enjoyed the video if you have any feedback ideas comments anything you want to share Please share them in the comments below now. I’ll be reading through the comments turn your Plight as many as I can and also I’ll be taking the feedback and sharing it back with the team so we can improve Based on based on your comments.

  1. THIS IS NOT SPAM I'M TRYING TO GET YOUR ATTENTION. I just got another fake copyright flag on one of my videos. Two of them in fact. Within the past week.

I've been a YouTube partner since 2007 and I've been battling this $h!t for over a decade. Fix. It.

  9. Hello guys will you help me I click on send me pin on adsence acount and they says wait for 3-4weeks,and I did't resive pin,I click one more time on 13th july and I am wating i have only one week left.What i can do if pin don't get the pin .I do everything they say HELP

  10. Please can we get total channel views in the dashboard of betA like we have in classic. Please this one thing is all I'm asking

  11. there is another very important bug in the unlisted system. I have been reporting it several times to youtube yet, but they just don't respond, not even on twitter…

    If you have an unlisted video and share it with some people (lets say patreons, sinces memberschipts is not available to everyone). If they hit the like button of the video, it comes on their channel page under the "liked video's", visible to everyone. So unlisted video's can be found under the "liked video's" of people who have watched it and have hit the like button and thus they do get listed…

    But hey, nobody seems to care @ YouTube…

  12. It sounds like a great feature for members, but it seems like the members only videos will get less views, so not sure what I think of this.

  13. then those videos shouldn't be downloadable coz i might download the video and share it on other platforms or maybe on youtube too. Whats ur step towards this problem.

  14. I need to add title/dewcription/thumbnail support staff to my channel, but without giving them full access to delete all my videos etc. Just access to my unlisted videos and they can submit title, description, thumbnails and then I can approve after checking and instantly release as members only and then queue for publishing later in my regular (3 videos go public every day) scheduling. My big problem is that I have to spend a lot more time titling, describing, thumbnailing my videos, when all I want to focus on is filming more content. Thus I never manage to publish my videos on schedule.

  15. If I release as members only today but it goes scheduled public next week, then the video publish date, will say next week's publishing date, right?

  16. So I can create a public playlist of all my members only videos and all the thumbnails titles etc are public but when they click to watch it asks them to become member? That's nice. I need each video to stop being in that playlist after going public automatically. And I need the playlist order to automatically be in the schedule of release that I may adjust in time. (for example I want to schedule a new release every 8 hours, can I drag and drop other videos into that fixed schedule and all following videos readjust to 8 hours later without me having to manually reachedule all the videos after) Basically I need non members to see which members only video is coming out publicly in the future it displaying a countdown for next public video. I plan to have up to hundred members only videos but non members can see there are 3 scheduled to publish every day.

  17. Will there be a way to set up an automatic transition between "member video" and "public" (basically like the normal "Schedule" option)?

  18. My channel has 61k subscribers but i still dont have the membership feature

    Any news on when it will roll out to everyone who has gone over the threshold

    Thanks

  19. Oh and a side note on 'membership videos' – I would 100% recommend adding a blurb to the gaming youtube guide about being careful of video game use conditions – as there's a number that explicitly prohibit putting content behind paywalls (it's an issue twitch is dealing with for subscriber only streams)

  20. Can you please add channel memberships for people in more different countries? I have tons of frustrated people who can't join because they live in the "wrong" countries.

  21. I need to be able to do links to my Unlisted or Members only videos to send to "my staff" and them having a way to Submit title/description/thumbnails/tags for me to see in Studio Beta to approve while Members only early access and for scheduling easily within my regular scheduling. For me it's a new public video every 8 hours, others might be 1 new public video every 24 hours, other it might be one a week every time on the same day and same time, etc. If I want to change my regular timing I can but I want to set a regular publishing schedule and easily be able to drag and drop dozens of videos even up to hundreds of videos within that.

  22. Love the idea to add the video pieces that didn't make it into the final video.
    Failed attempts and anything embarasing for a creator would be something to share only with a closer audience – members!

  23. On these videos that can be released to members early – will it hurt the video performance? The first couple of hours are very important, so if the video is only seen by a few people will it impact the overall "quality" of the video?

  24. "Members only (beta)" gltiches related to Youtube Premium

    (1) the system plays ads for these, even for Youtube Premium members
    (2) when watching my own "Members only (beta)" video with Premium, i cannot turn off phone screen, or it stops playing, as it would for any video for non-Premium members
    (3) also, i got a pop up for my own comment on my community post. thats never happened before. made me laugh

  25. This is an awesome feature. It will keep people from going off platform to Patreon. How do you qualify?

  26. For members only videos is there away Patreon members would be able to watch that video too or is it only allowed to YouTube members?

  27. Thanks for the tips. In the future, is it possible to make the playlist of the members-only video? So, when someone new joins the membership, he/she can access all the members-only videos at the same place, instead of going through the community posts.
    Thank you.

  28. "It's available to any creator who has channel membership, so it's available to everyone." How is that everyone when it's probably 0.1% of youtube channels that have paid channel membership as an option?

  29. Another cool feature I can not offer because membership channels must have more than 30,000 subscribers. 🙁

  30. Are channel memberships guaranteed to be enabled once I hit 100k subs? I'm currently at 74k and I don't have it yet. But I've seen channels with 2k subs that had them.

  31. Thanks guys. If something doesn't make the cut for my primary video, I certainly don't want to give paying customers chaff. Bloopers are another story though.

  32. Can creators charge a monthly or annual membership fee to see the Members Only videos? Through Youtube or through their own business merchant account?

  33. What subscriber count does Channel Membership start at? And is there an option for member only Polls and Image Posts? Thanks!

  34. Little too intrusive for me. Anyone who enjoys freedom is not going to like this. AT ALL! If I saw someone try to do this, I would move along, unless it was something really important. Big tech is getting more, and more intrusive by the minute. Like an annoying mind altering disease. Can you watch something as a member, and then become a non member? Do you need to pay to be a member? Guess I'm not totally understanding the whole "member" idea.

  35. This is great until you realize that you have to stay locked down to Channel Memberships or use a secondary channel to share out stuff to other fan funding solutions. The whole "not putting your eggs in one basket" thing :/

  36. It'd be nice to be able to offer these options to those of us who already have a paying subscriber base on another service, such as Patreon, for a nominal fee.

  37. Seconding the question about posting from Members-only to Public w/ an early access scheduler since that was mentioned as a use case

  38. If I give members early access do I set the video to members only then later set the same upload to public and everyone else will get notifications or does it have to be 2 separate uploads?

  39. Thanks for the video guys. We have over 50K subs and are monetised. We have a totally clean sheet and we don’t have the option for channel membership even though we meet all the criteria.
    What are we doing wrong?

  40. Can we please also get a subscriber only video option as well. Not all of us qualify for memberships.

  41. Realy I need help , I have one channel about gaming,video games.
    Channel is small and I dont have copyrights claims,strikes.
    But my channel is demonitase without email notice, I don t have twitter and large fallowers to something do.
    Please can you help me, is there bussines email or something, I am so desperate
    I don t know what to do

  42. GUYS PLEASE I NEED YOUR HELP. I have one gaming channel. Channel is small , without copyright claims,strikes …
    And without email notice or something, my channel is demonitase. I dont know what to do,please help I am so desperate

  43. Another feature to encourage growth and creating, even after a long break from YouTube. I'm one of those that joined back in the day but diverted to other things until now. I feel a bit like the guy in forever young lol but it's great to be back. More challenging for sure but enjoying the journey. Thank you 👍

  44. Hi there the new feature uplaod video (beta) is missing remaining time which showing while the video is being uploading which really helps and give an idea to do some other work before pressing done button

  45. Hola,

    Me gustaría saber en qué IDIOMA tengo que escribir los títulos de mis videos, etiquetas,etc. e incluso el video o el canal… parece ser que el ESPAÑOL hay que eliminarlo de la faz de la tierra. Un montón de canales están escribiendo titulos, etc en COREANO, CHINO, TAILANDES, ARABE, etc. sin ser su idioma… ¿QUE ESTA OCURRIENDO? ¿ALGUIEN PUEDE CONTESTARME? ¿ALQUIEN PUEDE ASESORARME? ¿o YOUTUBE está echando a los canales a buscarse la vida entre esos que se dedican a cobrar un porcentaje de los ingresos para asesorarte? ¿hay alguien en el otro lado? ¿alguien puede contestarme? ¿por qué ese mutismo? Ha habido un fallo en youtube desde el 7 de agosto… ¿y desde julio?¿qué ha pasado?

  46. 3:42 Are the early access videos separate videos from the public ones, or do creators change the videos from members only to public after a week?

  47. I really love the members function but it has a major flaw, price is not the same for all members. In my case if I set the level at 4.99€ for Spain, we get Argentina and Mexico to only pay like 3$ or even less. If I raise the price of Argentina or Mexico, Spain price skyrockets to 20€. Can you please let us charge a fix amount no matter where the member is from?? I don't get this at all and I have hundreds of members who would happily pay twice as much making me and youtube more money

  48. Can there be members only videos content for different levels through youtube members only options? Currently it seems we can have different member levels but members only videos and community posts just say all paid members for me, not that I have any members but I wanted to include a $1 level as an option with less features but it seems everyone of every level gets access to all the members only features that can be done directly through youtube. So we still would have to do unlisted videos for something higher level.

  49. Please like this so it can be seen 🙂

    My recommendations:
    1. Clipping feature (people can clip a 1 minute part of a livestream) and there is a page on your channel
    that you can watch most popular / recent clips by other people of your livestreams.
    2. The ability to use membership emojis in actual YouTube comments
    3. The ability to gift memberships to people in live-chat (like twitch), this would increase the amount
    of profit to the streamer and would make more people come back because they have a membership to your
    channel even though they didn't pay for it. (5 random gifted Memberships, etc).
    4. The ability to give higher tiers of memberships extra emojis / another badge next to the month badge to easily see what kind of member they are.

    I really hope a couple of these get implemented as it would help streamers and increase the amount of people that want to stream on the YouTube platform.

  50. I have Ideas for my channel. I wanna branch out & make things fun. Involve people. Is there a way to discuss my ideas? or do I just go for it & hope I don't anger anyone?

  51. Love the Content on this Channel , How do we get verified ???????????? we are on A&E's hit Show Storage Wars and now took our videos to youtube with over 38k subscribers already !

  52. Suggestion: Add the ability to unlock different vids, at different Membership Tiers. For example – Unlock all cooking videos at Membership Tier 1, Unlock all cooking videos AND restaurant taste test videos at Membership Level 2…

  53. Can't we just get a donate button on our youtube channels right near memberships? Kinda like a super chat… maybe just do a super chat for the comments section on each video. If you donate they appear on the videos comments with the comment / emoji.

  54. I have over 30,000 subs as well as all other requirments but I do not have this option on my creator dashboard?

  55. Hello Creator Insider. 👋I have over 300k subs but I don't have memberships activated. 😔
    Can you guys help me out with that?

  56. So I bought a membership for some specific videos but it sent me to community and I can’t access the community tab on my I pad. Why❓❓❓
