FAQ

Viutube is currently in Beta stage. Digital Rights Management protection will be available in the near future. When this is in place, videos will not be downloadable. This is a feature that we are focussing on.

No, there is no charge. Viutube is completely free to use. There is no joining fee, channel creation fee, watching fee, etc. There is no payment required from users or content creators.

Viutube pays for TWO criteria -

1. Number of unique views.

2. Number of subscribers.

To receive payments for both of these, the content creator must get 20,000 (Twenty thousand) unique views or above for their videos every month. Unique views literally means NEW VIEWS. For example, if the channel has received 40,000 total views in January and 50,000 total views in February , then the channel has received only 10,000 Unique views for February.

If the channel achieves the 20,000 unique views criteria, then they will be paid for the unique views AND for the number of subscribers they have. All values are taken into account at 11.59pm on the last day of the month.

If the Channel has achieved the target of 20,000 unique views for that month, the following amounts will be paid:

Unique views X 25 Cents

Subscribers X 1 Rupee

E.g. If the channel has achieved 100,000 Unique views and has 15,000 subscribers the calculation would be

100,000 X 0.25 = Rs. 25,000

15,000 X 1 = Rs. 15,000

Total payment to the channel = Rs. 25,000 + Rs. 15,000 = Rs. 40,000

Payments are directly transferred to the channels owners bank account. Payments are made on the 15th of the following month.

E.g. January payment will be made on 15th February, February payment will be made on 15th March, March payment will be made on 15th April etc.
