How do artists make money?

BeatPlaylist uses an embedded web-browser which connects to YouTube. When a non-premium user plays a video, YouTube may display a video advert, which will be automatically skipped after 5 seconds if a skip option is available.

Artists will receive revenue based on the advertising generated by their video. Artists are paid by Google and BeatPlaylist does not make any advertising revenue from YouTube videos.
