What do you like to watch on YouTube?


So many people are turning to YouTube as a source of entertainment and education. It has replaced television for many.
Some enjoy watching and learning from the “how to do” videos. Some just like cute animals. Others might watch a feel good video that shows something that happened and ended up well. Musicians love it, to listen to new music or hear a favorite piece played by many different people. The possibilities are endless.

It cant replaced my tv Judy , I got it on mine 😉 Seriously I'm subscribed to a few friends of mine that review stuff, cos I normally listen to and watch some reviews before I buy some stuff
Hi @Paul ! Good to see you here! What a good idea to use it for reviews. You get YouTube on your television? I didn’t realize you could, sigh, I am so behind techwise.

@Paul , I even have a smart TV, but since I am not smart, LOL!, I haven’t figured out how to watch it on this TV. It would be wonderful to. You could even watch old movies.

@Bahamas2020 , thank you for sharing with us how you use YouTube.
I do watch old movies to @Judith . I tell you what you can watch you tube on n TV an Apple TV 4. Its a set top box that plugs into the HDMI socket and all you do is download apps lie on an iPhone or iPad , they aren't too expensive. Theres a 4K one but not sure how much that is as my TV isn't 4k. I tell you who I was talking to yesterday 'Derek Zboran ' that used to be a guide . He was on LinkedIn, he's just signed up to it.
@Paul , thanks for your advice, as always your knowledge here is much appreciated! Derek! Wow! That’s fabulous! What is he up to these days? I speak to Magdalena all the time.

YouTube is mostly used to listen to music to see a movie and in a few cases I've been training a video that has been published somewhat worthwhile, most of which are inaccurate and we have to be careful to see and learn.
@Ts. Evaggelos , you bring up a good point, that we need to be careful about what we see. Not all information on YouTube is correct. This is what I also enjoy about it. Since many videos are just created by ordinary people, there is a tremendous diversity of information. I wanted to transplant a plant, for example. I watched many videos about how to do this. Each one taught me something different. As long as we realize that not everything will be accurate, it could be a wonderful resource.
Not too long ago, I needed to change the batteries on my swiffer mop. I had no idea where they were. I found a video that showed me exactly where they were and how to change them. Nowadays many products come without directions and expect you to find them online. I go right for a YouTube to show me what to do. It makes life easier!😀
Hi Judith. Interesting topic. I use Youtube for a number of different thing. Probably the biggest use i get out of it is to listen to music, but I also have been watching a number of instructional art videos on it lately. As Ts. Evaggelos points out above, you do need to take some of it with a grain of salt, because the information is not always correct of accurate. I have also looked at a few of the "how to play such and such song" type videos. I have also used it for educational purposes; the Spanish language series I was dabbling in from UC Davis required you to upload a video of yourself reading a Spanish language essay that you had written, so your pronunciation could be evaluated.

Interesting topic. Personally i like to watch first and mostly listen music. My other preference is documentarys, discussion rounds and from time to time for education purposes. And when it is necessarily, i watch "How to.." Videos.
