There is a list of examples where normal peoples became famous, as soon as the videos on their channel go viral. Nowadays it has become a career option for many.

The YouTubers (The channel owners who upload videos) earn when advertisers place ads, which are shown along with the video. Now if you download a video, no ads will be shown thus they will earn nothing even if you watch the complete video.
