I've notice in my time I've spent watching tekkit youtube videos there are still many people having a hard time to install and get this working for various reasons, Wether it be java or anti virus issues are anything. I would like to know if i could have permission to make a video tutorials on how to setup this awesome awesome mod pack so as many people as possible can enjoy it.

That's what i assumed as well, but the reason why i asked It because When i moneytized the video youtube responded asking me for sufficient permission to actually post the video giving it's content. The video included installation of technic launcher, java, BDcraft sphax and tekkit server installation. Maybe the problem is from java. Then again maybe youtube is just silly-pants. Thx for the responses!

Uh, yeah, I'm going to go ahead and say you can't "moneytize" it. Mostly because it's a supremely dick move. Also because there are a million completely free videos that do the exact same tutorial.

"moneytizing" it doesn't make it not free. it means there's potentially an ad in front of it. I really don't feel like I've got the authority to say if that's ok one way or the other. my reflex would be to say "do whatever", but I don't really speak for kaker on this kind of thing.

Yeah, it's not like any1 would have to pay to watch and lookin around i do see quite a few of other tutorials that would be moneytized as well. I'm not concerned if i can't moneytize it's no big deal :) But i also wouldn't want to actually be violating some sort of rule that the mod makers or technic pack makers have set for making videos on that topic. My other videos that cover tekkit and installation are actually set to moneytized and approved, so perhaps it actually is the fact i visited the java website during the video, or once again maybe youtube is just silly-hats :)

The Minecraft TOS (on minecraft.net) explicitly allows the placement of ads on YouTube videos of Minecraft, so it actually is legal. You can tell YouTube you have permission by pointing them to Minecraft's site.

Now, I doubt YouTube will let you do it still, without being in some sort of group like The Game Station, because YouTube does have to cover its ass, and sometimes they cover it more than they need to.

Thanks Jakj, very very helpful for me :) and damn are u ever right there about youtube lol. Silly-Hats. O well, even they don't let me moneytize it, no big deal. But it is nice to potentially make profit off a hobby even if it might not even happen. Well time to go look @ minecraft.net. Thanks folks

Just to be clear, youtube videos as far as we're concerned are 'totes cool'.

The idea that you have to ask us before making a youtube video is really silly, you can make whatever video you'd like, we don't care. Whatever YouTube says though, but that's between you and YouTube. Yogscast monotizes videos all the time, nobody cares when they do it.

Well slap a hat on me and call me silly :P lol. Thanks for ur response.. i guess i just wanted to be sure cuz i guess you just never know. Haha thing is I made and posted the video long before i asked for permission so i kind of did it backwards anyways lol. But thx for clearing stuff up.. im buggin youtube to tell me WTF @ the ineligability of the video now. the ONLY thing i can see it being is the fact i visited java during the video, but i highly doubt it.. well.. it was also the FIRST video i ever posted on that channel so perhaps youtube automatically checks ur first video more than others for security reasons or w.e

Well with nothing to say on that topic, I'm not sure who the moderators for technic pack are but i wanna give a giant thanks for the time you guys take to make the best minecraft mod pack ever (also thanks to all the moders that code that awesome stuff)! I wanted it so badly that i actually baught the game to gain the premium account just to use the legit launcher you guys made and I havn't regreted it one bit! awesome awesome awesome stuff folks. If i had money to throw around i'd donate for sure! Hey!.. but but if youtube actually moneytizes my stuff and makes me rich ill write a cheque with your name on it lol.. peace out
