For some time now, Joueur du Grenier, content creator on YouTube and also a streamer on Twitch, has not mince words when describing the current climate and his personal situation compared to the aforementioned platforms. But a real work tool for him and his colleagues, Joueur du Grenier recently revealed the concessions he has had to make to feed his channel on Google’s platform. According to her, there are special elements to her videos that she definitely couldn’t do without.

Despite some bitterness about the current situation of YouTube and Twitch, Joueur du Grenier, one of the pioneers in creating content on platforms with the red and white logo, is far from over although he is no softer when it comes to resurrecting one or two other platforms where we can follow suit. For him, YouTube becomes “Facebook video”. On the Twitch side, the project is growing and he is even imagining it new nostalgic format. Despite all the little surprises he can prepare in the shadows, especially for his main YouTube channel, the Google-owned platform poses some difficulties for him which he occasionally mentions during his sessions on Twitch.
Between Christmas and New Years, Joueur du Grenier returns to his job as a content creator at YouTube, a job that is not always easy and sometimes requires him to make concessions without which he would do well. This isn’t the first time Joueur du Grenier has shared his frustration with the platform directly. As for the rate of its video releases, slowing due to lack of time, others have been added and don’t really have an alternative to this method of developing its content and its production on these different chains. For Joueur du Grenier, sponsored videos are a real topic of debate, but not everything is negative in this regard, as he explained directly on Twitch.
For his YouTube videos, Joueur du Grenier has to make sacrifices
Those who consume a lot of content on YouTube are aware that content creators sometimes use sponsored videos. This allows them to, among other things, raise funds to create additional content or recoup certain expensive production costs. Like many of his colleagues, Joueur du Grenier uses it, but it’s not a choice he’s happy to make as he recently explained during a Twitch live.. It’s even heartbreaking at times when he chooses to include sponsors in his videos, even more so when it comes to certain mobile games.
Currently, on average we have one OP on the JDG channel, one OP on the Bazar channel (…) If I can have 2 OPs per month on the Bazar channel, we can have someone who spends more time on the Bazar, who prepares scripts for me so I can change it. It will allow me to spend less time in the Bazaar (…) I do it because I have no choice (…) But know that when I do OP in the mobile game my heart dies a little every time. Know that whenever you see me do it, I’m empty inside.
According to him, without sponsored videos, the rate of publication of videos on his various channels will be greatly affected. And, most importantly, there really isn’t an alternative to this system that would allow it to achieve a certain regularity in published content. While it can be a tough choice at times, there are sponsors where everything works like clockwork, like NordVPNeven if it gets harder to update yourself while doing this product placement.
Anyway, either we didn’t and then we would watch one video per week because we had no choice, or we did and maybe we managed to relaunch some sort of rhythm. Maybe we finally do a project we want to do, like JDR (…) I really like the OP with Nord VPN, mainly because they are so damn good. The people we work with are very, very open. They were the first to accept that we were doing so much crap (…) It’s true that after a while, I didn’t know what else to say. I don’t know how else to sell it to you.
