Many popular users on Youtube are revenue sharing partners. I have had a video with only 45,000 views be offered ad revenue sharing, I get about $20 a month, so many of these users do have monetary gain in mind when they upload these videos to Youtube.
Did you set out to make income? That is the difference I was making regarding Mama putting up vid of bouncing baby... in most cases few have any consideration of "going viral" and making a buck.
