- Editor – Create content based on available resources. You can see this form in channels that aggregate funny clips, movies, animal clips, etc.
- Re-upload: This is a form of taking other people’s videos then uploading them to your channel and turning on monetization. This is an unsustainable form and your channel will be blocked by YouTube at any time, and it is recommended that you do not participate in this form.
