For "Premium" users.

They need to develop a way to turn videos into articles.  Get so tired of searching for how to do something only to find it only available in video form.  Of course that video is 10 minutes long, while the process is only 3 steps and will take a max of two minutes to do.

You can watch someone fix the cable on both now?

Now that is funny. Seriously, they've had this technology for years, and just now figured out that chronic masturbators aren't the only ones who would appreciate this technology?

Porn will always lead the way with internet technology.

I've changed to pornographic switches.  No more collisions.

Sometimes, a single diagram is worth a thousand frames of video.  Especially when most of those frames are filler to get the video long enough for monetization to kick in and the next largest portion is the 'click to subscribe' begging.

I'll take text and a diagram over a video in almost every case.

The most popular part of the Youtube video is the end... so you can keep ads from reappearing midstream.

Most like buttons prefer tobe played with rather than pounded.

Do you know what else porn sites have? The ability to edit posts with a countdown clock attached. When the clock expires, that's it.

...if only...

not looking forward to youtube highlighting the portions of the video where some woman's feet are showing

Have they figured out a way to stop obscuring the end of every video with suggestions about what to watch next instead of letting you see what you were already watching?

I assume the music label who put the video up chooses those.

We have all kinds of possibilities before we stampede straight for the Like button!

But I guess that wouldn't drive engagement

No, assholes I don't need to know anything about you while I am just looking to troubleshoot my weed whacker. I don't need anything about your philosophy of power tools. I don't want a long preamble of what we are going to do. I just want clear instructions that I can leave up on my screen while I am working on disassembling something according to instructions instead of having to pause every few seconds after putting down what I am farking with.

I would be happy if YouTube was actually watchable in Chrome. It's fine in Edge. If I copy the same URL to Edge, I can watch it at 4k quality without a single hiccup, but in Chrome? Constant freezes, even in incognito mode (where extensions are off) and downgrades to the lowest resolution.

I have a 400mbps broadband connection.

WTF, YouTube? What is going on here?

Why does Edge work and Chrome does not? Anybody else have this issue?

They must really be feeling the tiktok pressure.  They made content creators lengthen their videos or not be monetized, and now they are making it easier for people not to watch the whole video which is often only full of puff because youtube made them do it.
