i've read a lot about monetizing and have also watched a lot of videos just to educate myself before i get into monetizing my videos. i was going to go with a network but i honestly don't really need the services they provide right now. i'm just worried i don't know enough about monetizing my videos to make them qualify so my account or videos don't get strikes. my biggest concern is i do a lot of Nintendo games such as Mario maker, indie games, retro games etc and i've looked and i've got strikes cause of the in game music. i know that Nintendo has an agreement you can sign and they'll let you post Nintendo videos but they take a cut which is fine. i just don't know enough about it. can anyone give me some guidance on monetizing my videos and provide some more information on the hole Nintendo contract. i appreciate all of your help and value what you have to say.
