What do you use Youtube for?

April 10, 2008 12:25pm CST
There are so many videos on Youtube, ranging from vloggers to television networks showing previews of up and coming shows. What do you look for on Youtube? What do you tend to avoid? Do you feel a part of the community on Youtube? I look for Vlogs, Christian videos such as things about the Ark and to watch tv online. I avoid news, trailers, "funny" videos and animal videos

but for matches and tv shows I think that you can find some better sites with better quality.. I mean youtube does have everything and its absolutely free, but the resolution of the videos isn't the greatest. (Don't get me wrong, I;m not complaining about youtube, I still think its great!!)

Mainly me and my boyfriend use Youtube to try out comedians, see how good they are and chase up ones we've heard of. Its a good way to spend an hour or so without haven't to watch TV and just hoping something god and funny will be on. A while ago we found a load ofreally good Jimmy Car Videos and so for his birthday I bought us 2 tickets to see him next month. I can;t wait - so for now weve stopped watching any Jimmy Car stuff in case it spoils it for us :)

I use YouTube mainly for finding oldies music from the groups I liked growing up, finding old decent cartoons that my grandkids can watch...they are better than the junk on tv today, finding good Christian music videos, and then sometimes just anything interesting that sparks my interest...such as the most recent find--animusic. I sometimes enjoy funny animal and funny baby videos, but I don't go looking for them. I also got a "copy" of an old favorite Indian movie my family has enjoyed over the years. We don't have the video anymore and it was neat to find the entire movie on YouTube...but in small segments....odd way to watch a movie, but it works.

I really like watching those clips of scenes from popular movies that have been dubbed so that it looks like the characters are actually saying things completely irrelevant... Although very few people have managed to create good quality videos of this sort. I also like watching stand up comedy every onw and then

I tend to avoid most of the videos where people are just doing video blogs of their opinions. That's just not my thing. I like watching music videos, especially amateur musicians. I also post some music videos myself as well. I love receiving helpful tips from other musicians and I think YouTube has really helped me. I feel more inspired to practice when I watch others and when I know I'll have an audience once I have the song ready to record. I will watch funny commercials and stuff like that sometimes, but mostly just music. Music alone gives me too much to watch anyway. ;)

I use it to watch funny videos and bloopers. I usually don't watch anything else on there. I don't like watching news. I will occasionally watch animal videos but most the time it is because they are funny.
