Quick Verdict - WorldTVPC Rating: (4.0)
Youtube is undeniably the number one video website for user generated content and viral videos. It's completely free and most of the times easy to use. The vast amounts of content are Youtube's only real advantage but at the same time this advantage comes with numerous drawbacks.
Everyone knows Youtube as the prime website for video sharing on the internet. Every day, tens of thousands of videos are uploaded on Youtube from all around the world. Youtube is the world’s number one website for user-generated videos and amateur video blogs (Vlogs). Additionally, Youtube features more music video clips, TV clips and movie clips than any other site, but this does not mean it is without problems. Youtube was bought by Google for 1.65 billion dollars and is still struggling to make a profit due to the enormous storing spaces and server maintenance costs involved in its operation.
There are more videos on Youtube than in any other place on the internet; by far. Through Youtube, users can find virtually everything. From video blogs, to cartoons, to rare vintage videos and original productions, Youtube simply has it all. Youtube is also the one-stop shop for music videos and video clips. Simply, if you are looking for a video online, chances are it’s on Youtube too.
Youtube is totally free to use. You can view an unlimited amount of videos on your computer without spending a dime. This includes amateur productions as well as high-profile movies, popular serials and documentaries.
Youtube’s services can be accessed through virtually all media platforms that exist in the market today. Youtube is compatible with most devices than every other online video service, thereby allowing for maximum accessibility to users. Everyone can access Youtube’s content through on-TV gadgets such as Boxee and also via all modern generation gaming consoles including Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii. Obviously, Youtube is also compatible with all commercial smartphones. Simply, you can access it from everywhere!
The problem with the billions of hours of video found in Youtube is… well, that most of it is of sub-par quality. Tons of user-generated nonsense is uploaded daily including inside jokes and “trolling” videos that do not contribute anything and just waste time and hard disc space. Even for high quality and professional productions, Youtube’s video time restrictions and the usual lack of HD quality (not always a problem) means that Youtube’s overall video quality is low. Make no mistake though, there are good videos in there, it’s just the bulk of bad videos that lower their average score.
This is a problem related to the one mentioned above. The tons of nonsensical and bad quality video, coupled with floods non-English speaking videos means that it is sometimes notoriously hard to find exactly what you are looking for amidst the millions of irrelevant search results you get from Youtube. Youtube’s searching functionality is rather poor (cannot even be compared to services such as blinkx or Amazon prime) and when you try to dig up obscure videos you are faced with a lot of confusing and irrelevant results.
Another problem with Youtube and their endless mountains of user-generated content is that many users will upload videos that violate copyrights along with more legit videos. When these users get banned for uploading illegal content, their legal content is often gone too! So, copyright infringements (a phenomenon all too common with Youtube) cause a lot of instability, and a good video you might have bookmarked from Youtube a week ago might be gone today thanks to copyright infringements and user bans.
Youtube is undeniably the number one video website for user generated content and viral videos. It’s completely free and most of the times easy to use. The vast amounts of content are Youtube’s only read advantage but at the same time this advantage comes with numerous drawbacks. Nontheless, Youtube is one of the most integral websites on the internet today.
