Hey guys,

I have been making GTA videos with my crew for about 5 or 6 years now on youtube and have been a partner since 2011. I have recently started monetizing my GTA videos as i make music too and putting our music with GTA videos is a good way to share it out and get it heard more. We spend a lot of hours working on our gameplay footage, and music and video production and it seems some videos get accepted for monetizing and others don't. 

Just recently we were featured on social club as a crew and Rockstar Games also embedded our new video there as well as come to our youtube channel with there official youtube channel and liked and favorited our video into a playlist on their page which has helped us get lots of subscribers and views. But the video now has a error next to it and a message saying "you have 12 days left to provide information for monetization" and a '!' symbol. I have seen take 2 interactives request here about not using in game spoilers or music from in game ect, except that is for 'non-commercial' use rights. I am wondering what documentation I am meant to provide for commercial use rights since i have my own music in the videos and do not breach their copyright laws.. The video in question is here -->   any help much appreciated! have already sent a email to [email protected] and still have no response on this issue of monetizing our youtube videos.

Thanks in advance.

i dont know too much about monetization of videos since youtube hates me. but if rockstar does not reply you can also tweet at their support account and they always reply.

Take-Two/Rockstar Games don't freely permit monetization, you have to have proper media relations which means you either have to be A. part of one of the big networks (which themselves have a set of requirements) or B. be successful independent YouTuber. Since you are not one of those two you're most likely basically sh*t out of luck.
