Is Facebook stealing views from battle videos?

Have u guys seen battles on Facebook before? I have. I never knew they don't monetize or steal videos from YouTube and convert them into the Facebook player without adding to the YouTube statistics

Not just are they stealing views, but it likely is affecting YouTube money for these leagues that have channels.

Should leagues simultaneously release battle vids on both YouTube AND via the Facebook-player to maximize virality, since Facebook clearly gives preference to vids encoded in its own web player vs YouTube embeds?

Am I normally this tech savvy?

Will this traveler's diarrhea ever go away?

Tune in next week.

Once Facebook properly monetizes video views I could see it being used by leagues, but until then I don't see the benefit of uploading to that platform tbh

If, they monetize. I got a feeling they are going to get away with not compensating for this copy-written material since its more often than not uploaded by regular individuals, as opposed to directly uploaded by facebook itself.

Right now, I don't think it's hurting views/money because I haven't seen a full battle uploaded and spread around Facebook

Most battle clips I've seen on Facebook are short viral clips with millions of views that probably end up generating interest in the full battle- But I can definitely see how it could be a problem down the line as the FB Video format gets more refined.

i legit saw clips vs lux, full battle on facebook. It was uploaded by a random user. Same copy as the one on the urltv. I have seen other full battles on there too i'm sure.

The ease with how facebook allows u to just click one button to share a vid is an attractive feature if u want a lot of eyes to see ur vid in a short time. Not to mention how it autoplays as u scroll through a timeline, it may attract some more eyes and get people to watch the vid.

I honestly think leagues should just abandon the whole youtube money thing (its not their main source of income), and just get the vid to as many people as possible once they have uploaded the vid for free on youtube, to as many social media platforms as allowed. The more eyes, the better

I hope this happens. I have had my videos uploaded in their entirety without any links back to my channel. It's retarded, but Facebook just thinks 'more views and shares is more advertising money for us' and carries on regardless.

Shit's frustrating. You don't need a YouTube account to watch videos. And all you need to create one anyway is an e-mail address. Facebook monopolizing the internet, if they offer more money and leagues start using it, then presumably you can't watch battles anymore without getting a facebook account. They do hella shit to try to make every one have one. When I deactivated they asked for a reason. After I picked one, it suggested a solution to that reason that didn't involve deactivation. I confirmed deactivation, it suggested I have it automatically reactivate after 30 days. I declined that. Shit's ridiculous.

Don't think leagues should even entertain the idea until the content policy changes.

man my boy just posted one of the halloween battles to my facebook wall. I know for a fact he dosn't follow battling, and even he sees this vid, which is great for diz, since the whole point of these battles were to reach viral status, with audiences above and beyond just battle fans

Unfortunately this vid alone has over 700k views on facebook tho, not youtube. None of this stuff can be monetized. I know diz's whole plan with these vids was to make viral videos with these battles. Luckily he's getting the viral part, but is losing on the money becuz facebook don't pay.
