    Work hard. If you don't want to upload your mix for viewer count reason - then please go home.
    If you want to dj for the enjoyment and letting people enjoy the same type of music as then you keep working/upload/Share.
    //end it

    pretty much the only dj to get "famous" off youtube is that bl3nd clown

    you're not going to get famous uploading mixes to youtube

    seems there are quite a few people that have gotten noticed on youtube for production related stuff though but that's a different story

    You need a gimmick to make it big on youtube, talent is much further down on the list. Try quick mixing <insert "genre" of the moment> and taking a dump or starting a food fight or wearing some sort of eye catching costume or mask.

    Make an epic fail/cat video and have your mix in the background.

    If anyone knew the formula to Internet vitality by now, you'd already see it being abused heavily.

    Basically this, although there are a few guys who've done really well for themselves such as dj ravine and dj cotts. i'm far from famous but uploading mixes to youtube has defo helped my career a tonne and pushed me to step my game up. to OP, make an effort to develop a style (based around the things that you enjoy about djing). upload mixes that show 100% of your skill level at the given time (even though you won't be comparable to someone like craze), enjoy yourself and use it as an opportunity to better yourself as a dj.
