Introduction to the Youtube app

 YouTube is the biggest online video platform on the Internet today. It is also the second biggest worldwide search engine there is. There are millions of people who use YouTube every single day if not up to a billion. That's just how big, resourceful and valuable people consider YouTube to be because nobody goes where they have nothing to gain.

 It is a great resource for learning so many things, from cooking to cleaning to how to live without a dad, to baking, to learning Emotional Intelligence. If you're into a topic you know very little about, YouTube will most probably have information about it. Oh and YouTube gives you unlimited comedy as well as prayers and educational content. It even teaches you Marketing. This is no wonder considering the number of people who use YouTube looking for a certain kind of information. Of course marketers will make use of such a huge platform.

Did you also know that people make money using the app either by the app developers themselves or by other users for the production of valuable content. This is just how awesome using YouTube has been for users.

Let us check out some of its features below.

Why use YouTube on PC?

 Videos are mostly the best ways of sharing information online. You're more likely to pause a video when you see someone talking sometimes more than even stopping to read a full article. YouTube makes this possible.

 Video content helps you optimise your search engine rank because usually most search engines (Google especially) favour/push that form of content. Your video will find its place among your desired audience faster because the search engine is working for you.

 Video content is more emotionally stimulating than most others thus it is easier to connect with your audience in a more humane way. They can see and relate to all the emotions flickering across your face and this will inspire them to take a desired action. Even more important than some of the reasons above, YouTube is a platform that doesn’t require such a huge budget to start up an active account. All you need to do is create an account and start posting your videos. Also minimal gear is needed. Matter of fact, you can learn the easiest way to start using YouTube using YouTube. I think this is awesome.

Top Pcmac Reviews

  • Finicky.

    By Mreeves336 (Pcmac user)

    Every time I try to do something with the video I’m watching, I end up on a new video. I try to double tap to rewind, I’m on the previous video in the playlist. OK, no problem, I’ll just hit the next button right? Nope, because the next button is not going to take you back to the video you were just watching, it’s going to take you to another video that they want you to watch. So now you have to go find the video you were watching to keep watching it. One top of that, if you make the wrong move, you’re now swiping back-and-forth between videos like tinder matches. I’m sure it was made to be convenient but it’s more annoying than anything because 99% of the time I don’t know what video is next on the playlist and I probably don’t want to watch it. Why would you make it like this? It really ruins the user experience. You’re basically forcing me to watch videos that I don’t want to watch and I’m not going to watch. Seems like they only do this to get you to watch more advertisements. It only benefits them. Because every time I accidentally flip a video, once I get back to where I was, now I’m watching an advertisement. And I refuse to pay them that ridiculous price for you to print. I’ve decided to just start using other websites. There’s too many other options for them to do this.
  • A Small Detail That’s Driving Me Crazy.


    Will still rate it 5 Stars because this is definitely one of my most used apps, and I’m sure plenty of other people can say the same. Despite how great YT is, there’s this one “lag” (I don’t quite know what to call it). Half the time I go to the comments and want to look at the replies under a certain comment, it won’t let me view them. I’ll press the “view replies” button a large number of times but quite literally nothing happens. Only way I myself can fix it, is to refresh the tab. Then when that happens sometimes I can’t even find the comment again. Even in general that is just an irritating thing to deal with. However, this could just be a problem with my phone. I’m not smart enough to tell the difference haha. If you have managed to stumble upon this review, just wanted to say thanks for the hard work, but also please acknowledge my frustration lol. -Syd
  • i love it! one annoying problem...

    By Web259 (Pcmac user)

    i love this app, i use it almost every day. the one issue i have is that (it didn’t used to be this way, but it’s been doing it and won’t go away) when i have a video and want to make it full screen, it doesn’t matter if i click the full screen button or tilt my phone, it glitches and only shows me a corner of the video. it cuts the screen into fourths basically and the top left one is the bottom of the video and the other pieces are just gray or something. it’s SUPER frustrating and won’t go away. a few months ago i didn’t have this problem. then a while back i had a similar issue coming out of full screen. it would cut off half of my screen when i minimized the video by tilting my phone upwards and i would have to either close out of the app, or swipe down from my video to fix it. i love the content, accessibility, recommended, etc. but these two things affect like everything i watch. it may just be me but it’s been so annoying!
  • Shouldn't the Top Comment be the one with the most thumbs up?

    By DromeDru (Pcmac user)

    I'm loving the app and the new design to the comments are pretty good, though it will take some time to get used to. The only thing I have against it, still, was being able to view the Top Comments of a video versus the Newest Comments. The Newest Comments were easy to view and were up-to-date on the app, comments posted like "45 seconds ago" and "9 seconds ago" were cool to see. However, Top Comments were all over the place as the Top Comment (after pressing the Top Comments option three times) would result in a comment with several hundred likes, while a comment further down would have several thousand. Maybe that Top Comment (with the several hundred likes) was gaining "likes" rapidly that the app couldn't pick up, or maybe the Top Comments option needs more work. I do not know, but it definitely would be a idea to go that way. It would give the app a cooler angle of getting people to view videos, kind of like Reddit's system of karma if you need more convincing.
