How does the Monetization Checker tool work?

Youtube monetization checker operates by analyzing the source code of a channel or video page.

The tool examines and verifies these values, providing you with information on whether the channel or video is monetized or not.

How to check if a YouTube video is monetized?

Visit the video's page, right click and open the source code, look for "yt_ad", "value": "1" string. If that value is present, the video is monetized; if that string is not present, it is not monetized.
You don't need to do this for every video you want to check for monetization; just paste the URL of the video into the box above.
It is also worth noting: Sometimes videos that are not monetized may have ads. Therefore, always looking for the string "yt_ad" in the source will not lead you to the right result. or likewise, if there is any copyright on the video or YouTube is running ads in the video for its own benefit, you will still see the string "yt_ad", but this does not mean that the video is monetized. and advertising revenues are not attributed to the video. If such a situation exists in the video, the tool checks it and indicates that the video is not monetized.

YouTube has changed its 'monetization' requirements:

According to the new criteria, the condition of having 1000 subscribers has been reduced to 500. In other words, the requirement for earning money under the partner program has been lowered from 1000 subscribers to 500. Additionally, the requirement of 4,000 hours of watch time in a year or 10 million Shorts views in the last 90 days has been updated to '3,000 hours of watch time in a year or 3 million Shorts views in the last 90 days.' Among the new conditions, uploading 3 public videos in the last 3 months is also required. Content creators who meet the updated requirements can apply for the YouTube Partner Program. Creators will also have access to tipping features like Super Thanks, Super Chat, and Super Stickers, subscription tools like channel memberships, and the opportunity to promote their products through YouTube Shopping.

The previous requirements for earning money on YouTube were as follows:
  • 4000 valid public watch hours is required in the last 1 year.
  • Your Youtube Channel must have at least 1000 subscribers
  • Your videos should not be private or unlisted.
