Like blogging, with YouTube, you can make money by displaying advertisements and affiliate marketing. There are also certain YouTube channels who promote a company's product for a fixed charge. For example, in a cooking video, the chef may ask people to use a certain brand of spices.

Videos of your baby, or beauty tips or Vlogging, you can use any random niche for your YouTube channel. And if you hit the right chord with the audience, you can earn much more than just a handful of money.

However, for making money with YouTube, you should have the license to promote the video. So, either the video should not be copyrighted or you should be the creator/owner of the video.

Movies, Songs, Trailers, TV shows etc are not allowed for YouTube Monetization scheme. In fact, Google will delete your YouTube if they receive any copyright infringing complaints. Worse still, you might get sued by the owner of the video.
