Nishant Gaurav6 years ago

One of the perks of creating a YouTube channel is the inbuilt creator studio where the YouTuber can check video analysis, performance graphs, demographics and much more. But, if you are managing multiple YouTube channels as content owner without YouTube Content Management System, then following factors may imply. Those are,

  • No YouTube MCN creator Dashboard
  • Cannot manage multiple YouTube channels
  • Zero control on Content ID
  • Revenue distribution goes haywire
  • Cannot analyze the metadata


Not everyone gets a YouTube Content Management System (CMS). It’s a rigorous procedure where one must apply for access to CMS. Here are a couple of steps to apply for a Content Management System along with the basic requirement criteria

  1. You need a partnered YouTube Account. -> CMS Basic Account
  2. If you have such an account, you can apply yourself on –> 

With the full content management account, you can prove your partner on to find out if he fulfilled all the copyrights and don’t practice any illegal activities.

Obtaining a Content Management System is quite difficult nowadays but if you are reputed media group in video domain or having a channel in good shape you have fairly good chances of getting it without any hiccups.

You must have several pieces of documentation proving you have the World Wide Distribution Licenses to any content in which you own and are hosting to claim under the CMS. Unless you are taking down 100’s of pieces of copyrighted material each day it is near impossible to be accepted.

Also, just because you have a CMS does not make you a network on YouTube. There is more than one type of content management accounts.

  • IVP – Individual Video Partnership – You can monetize some of your popular videos only. [By invitation]
  • Partner (full YouTube Partner; YPP) – You’re either invited, or you apply, and when you’re accepted, will be able to monetize any or all of your videos at any time.
  • CMS (full CMS) – Content Management System – Here, the content manager will get the CMS to auto-fetch YouTubers content under the MCN, and decide whether to monetize, track, or block your content from the hands of its users.

There are also different types of networks such as YouTube Network (company), Sub-Network, Content Aggregator or Network (under a Company). If you would like to get your own Content Management System, then there is much more than to apply for Content ID or CVP.

Following are the required factors that will play a crucial role to become a registered network.

  • First of all, you need to have a company. [ Machinima, Thoughtful Media ]
  • You need to get at least basic license for (example LLC) your company.
  • Second, of all you need money.
  • To make a company website and pay staff. Also for your company’s office.
