Default revenue from photos from youtube?

I recently put a video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7Zs-46P7B4&hd=1 and have just been asked to be a youtube affiliate or something like that. Basically it means get paid per click...I have used some photos in the video from my dslr...Now the amount of views I get I will probably get a cheque that will by me a coffee by Christmas
But seriously putting videos together made from photographs isn't difficult and some of the pro's probably get a lot of views so I wonder if it ever gets to be even a "little" income. I also wonder if it is a "safe " way to show photo's as it wouldn't be easy to download stills from the video without a bit of hassle.
food for thought?
Youtube has some criteria for partner videos but a lot of photographers would have no trouble ie family friendly, original, your own work etc...
Roll on when I can afford a dslr with HD video....

Depends on if there's tax hassles since you are "making money".
