Can you make any significant amount of money creating YouTube videos? Has anyone made any money off of their YouTube videos?

Of course. All of the people with hundreds of thousands of subscribers make money. There are estimates online for some of the top stars, but I doubt they are close to the actual amounts the people make. I am fairly sure you do not make enough to live by until you have about 500,000+. I would guess the top stars can make upwards of $250,000 a year.

Wow, really that much, that is surprising.

Jenna Marbles is a YouTube hit, and she's generally broke...

That would be a 3 second video, with a link in the description.

Oh, does that block the video ads now too? Last time I used it, it didn't. I block all that Google ad nonsense from the router.

I'm sure a lot of you know who Ray William Johnson is. He reportedly makes a cool Million a year from youtube alone.

Yeah it works brilliantly, not a single advert has made it through in quite some time.

Make a video and DDoS it? Isn't it something like 1000 views = 1$?
