Machinima, best known as a YouTube network, is a gaming website created by Hugh Hancock in January 2000.  Contrary to popular belief, Machinima is not a single YouTube channel since it transformed into a "Multi Channel Network".

The owner is Alan Henderson, who is devoted entirely to Machinima; a computer animation made usually with a video game or other "machines", according to Hancock. It showcases Machinima from other authors (SeaNanners, SkyDoesMinecraft, DigitalPh33r, DarkSpireFilms, etc.), and adds them to its channels for others to view, mostly on Respawn, Realm, Sports and VS. The main channel Machinima, as well as Prime, Trailer, Happy Hour and Inside Gaming are generally less focused on such videos.

Machinima peaked as the third most subscribed YouTube channel from May to December 2011 (surpassing Smosh), just behind nigahiga and Ray William Johnson and peaked as the most viewed channel on YouTube from February to March 2013, surpassing Universal Music Group. It now has over 5 billion views.

The company's name, 'Machinima', is a portmanteau of the words 'machine' and 'cinema', and relates to the use and manipulation of video-game technology to create animations. The website has helped to bring attention to Machinima, the art of creating animated videos in real-time virtual game environments, and to encourage productions based on game engines other than those of id Software's first-person shooter computer game series Quake.

Machinima is currently the #7th most viewed channel on YouTube with over 5 Billion Video Views.

Partnerships

Ever since sometime in 2010, when gaming YouTubers discovered that they could make money off of making gaming videos, Machinima began to partner a lot of YouTubers, some of the most well known Machinima Partners being darksydephil, SSOHPKC, TheRadBrad, and ToyPudding; among many others.  Some of the lesser known Machinima partners include MrBossFTW, Bboymoreno92, Communitygame, Cobanermani456, Machinimaetc, and Mlghwnt, as well as many others.  Since then many of the biggest Machinima partners, such as darksydephil and SSOHPKC, have found a way to make a living off of the money they make from Machinima, which is becoming less and less common today.
