Hello everyone, I have a nice tutorial to share with you guys.


Streaming website is kind of a trending method now when a lot of people have started their journey with their own movies/TVshow/anime websites. Most of them chose Openload, Streamin, Rapidvideo and other hosting services as the monetizing way. But the thing is they show a lot of ads and you only receive smaller share of the revenue (most of the revenue is paid to hosting services to cover their hosting cost). Another big issue is the loading speed which is pretty slow and a lot of them does not support mobile users.
If you choose to buy your own server to host your videos, that will cost you hundreds to thousands of dollar each month with all the massive number of storage space and bandwidth.
So there is a way to solve this problem: use Google Drive as a CDN.

Step 1: Go to http://drive.google.com sign in with your google account.


Step 2: Upload your video to G Drive.



- right click to your video > Share
- click Advance > Change
- Tick Anyone with the link or Public on the web
- Copy the link to share.


Step 3: Go to: Embed Video – Drive Host


Copy the drive link and paste on the site and hit Get link, the tool will give you an embed code. Embed it on your site, your video is so ready right now.





Note:
- The new player is JW Player with option for users to download.


- Your video will have different resolutions to play 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p. It's cool, right? And the loading speed is like playing Youtube videos, fast af... But when you upload to Drive, it takes google server some time to process your video if your video has huge size. So wait for awhile.


- You can use it method for mainstream movies, anime, TV Show and even porn. I've run my adult site using it and it works fine. Drive is not like Youtube. Youtube is a public place where people share videos to the community. Anyone can access your videos so it is so easy to detect porn on Youtube. Drive, on the other hand, is somewhere you store your personal files, you have the right to privacy. I don't think Google can detect your content legally as long as you keep your files secret.
Your videos are encoded via Drivehost site, so your users don't know where the files are located as well => NO REPORT.

- I just bought offshore VPS with DMCA-ignore feature to host my site and I don't care about anything anymore LOL.


- Monetizing ways: Banner and popups from big networks like: Popads, Popcash, Propeller Ads, Adsterra, exoClick or revenuehits. They're all highly trusted networks and have daily and weekly payment. You receive 100% of your revenue and got payment fast.

What is the usual traffic to $ ratio like? Can you give us an example of how much traffic or views could generate how much revenue? Maybe share your experience in that sector.

Looks very interesting I have to say :)
But I have the same question if you have tons of views (or depend on where you put the embed it can be millions), they will not catch you?
