but the main thing is that If I place my upcoming web series on youtube, then how i'm I going to make money off it?
Well Hack The Toaster, clearly the greatest series ever, ever. Managed to do so by selling merchandise, and advertising on their own site which embedded the remotely hosted videos.
Disclaimer. (1) Whilst I will help you sometimes, if I feel like it, and my advice in relation to your actual question will be of good quality: my posts are to be taken with a pinch of salt. I will be sarcastic, deploy irony and include obscure cultural references for my own amusement without warning.
(2) You will gain nothing from complaining, and if you try to argue with me then you will not win. No matter how noble your battle seems, I am still better than you, don't be an hero.
People can't steal your work anyways, so don't worry about that. If you want to make money off of it, I know there are a bunch of places that will allow people to download videos for a price that you set, so you make money off of them.
