Most Annoying Things About YouTube

Darrell
We all love YouTube. But how can it be better?

The Top Ten

1 Copyright Paranoia

I can understand the issue with showing full songs/videos of songs, but what really annoys me is this:

Someone uploads a video that could be of say: skateboard tricks, bloopers, stunts or anything really. They use bits of songs in it to make it "cooler", and because one of the bits of song is deemed copyright infringement, the whole soundtrack for the video is removed. It just seems a bit over the top. - wizardryuk

YouTube is working with the already rich corporations to isolate certain material and censor the internet. It all seems innocent now, but this is setting up a population for brainwashing and social manipulation. Soon entire websites will be banned and controlled and the only people who serve to gain are, again, the already rich.

These petty copyright issues shouldn't be a problem. I shouldn't have to dispute a claim because of 20seconds of someones song. It's not even the whole thing. Unless it's a 1 to 1 copy of something in its entirety YouTube should bud out. To hell with the lobbyists looking to improve sales stats at the costs of freedom.

I played a song in the background (But did not try to include it, because I was going to put a soundtrack to it ON YouTube) while I recorded an important video, and YouTube removed my sound! Now I can't even put any songs in the video to cover it up! It's so annoying. Plus, who cares if random people, especially ones with videos of less than 100 views, use things plenty of people know isn't their own? - emraldYE

There's a YouTuber named charmx, and he's been takin down twice! He makes good videos and I feel bad for the guy

2 Ads Before Videos

Ugh, I just wanna see the video, do I really have to see an ad of Pizza Hut? If I buy your products, will you PLEASE leave me alone?

(Them-) No.

The crazy thing is that sometimes you have to watch a commercial about something that's not even sold in your country.

Every single VEVO video ever needs to have a commercial before it. No I don't want to buy pizza, no I don't want to buy acne control, no I don't want to but baby swimming diapers. The possibilities of what will come up is ENDLESS

Ads before videos are bad enough but when it has a jump scare..

3 Haters

I hate nirvana I love guns n roses, I hate Metallica, I love motley crue. What the peck, these are the words that comes from those annoying, self-righteous, dumb, hypocrite fans. And also, if you are a fan of a band don't do anything worse like throwing bottles on stage, putting the bad sign on the band, saying an ex-member's name in front of the band that you wish that he is there but nowhere to be seen, fighting the band on stage, damaging the band, the crew and other people including their things. In other words, riot. - ronluna

Whats the point in watching something if you hate it?!?!

But still, after you watch one video you shouldn't go on and watch the another one if you already know you hate it. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

So much hate spread by these people, its like they spend all night and all day doing this, from racism to any form of hate, on nearly every video. IT NEEDS TO STOP.

I hate people who hate me. I don't know why - THEEPICDUDE990

"You're Canadian? LOL Too bad, we will not let you watch this video without any decent explanation "

5 Google Buying It

Youtube is dead. It died as soon as Google bought it.
Youtube was once a giant forest where everyone has their place in it, sharing the fruits of the trees and having fun with each other. After the corporates discovered this elysium, they cut down the trees, deprived the people of their property and built estates/manors for the powerful landlords (like Smosh, RWJ, ShaneDawson) who then enslaved the natives and made makes every effort to profit off the already-poor natives. That is a perfect metaphor to what happened to Youtube.
R.I.P. old Youtube!

It's all downhill, from here.

Google + brought spammers getting endless typing, screamer links and forcing people to sign up for their horrid network. News is that someone tried to post a link to reverse comments and Google suspended their channel. Google just can't accept being beaten by other social networks. To comment on Youtube you need to sign up for the trash of Google. The only good thing anymore is Bob.

Should be 1 Google did that because it was going to surpass them!

6 Racist comments

I hate it when those guys on the comments that say racist stuff. I looked at the comments for a thin lizzy song, and I saw the n word everywhere - Razor79

I saw this youtuber drahn1275, who hates japan and I hate him because he creates numerous spams about false details that koreans better than japan and he still idiotically in it. actually I blocked him. - ronluna

God these people are idiots, just because they were born in a different country and maybe had a different native language and/or skin colour doesn't mean you have to be an idiot about it. They were BORN that way, they couldn't change that when they were born, their mother can't stop herself from being that origin, passing most of it towards their babies. And, strangely enough, stupid racists, YOU can't do anything about it by being an idiot, so get off YouTube and get a life.

There was this stupid dumb pathetic Japanese nationalist on youtube that commented on a PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Mascot Video and he was calling Koreans pathetic. So I blocked him because he was being a real douchebag.

7 Trolls

I remember the dark age, the days of AnimatorBenny23!

If you speak your opinion, they tell you to go kill yourself for no reason at all. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

It used to be no so many trolls when the time YouTube can let user to dislike comments.

I haven't seen a single video without someone named Clorox Bleach in the comments saying, "DRINK ME! " or "THIS IS CANCER! " - Popsicles

8 Vevo

The most evil and selfish thing on YouTube. They blocked numerous music videos from Latin and European artists in order to make American trashy garbage like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Kanye West, Jay-Z... The most viewed persons in the world!

There is a legend that says if a person watches Vevo all the way through, YouTube would be destroyed. So IF you're trying to watch Vevo, GO BACK and watch pigs, MLP or other things because Vevo can destroy YouTube. Remember the saying: VEVO IS A VIRUS. VEVO MUST DIE

Alright, before 09 you could search up a song, enjoy it and watch the video if you wanted, then Vevo came along, and blocked all the "bad" words. Now some songs you can't even find the original uncensored song (like Cyclone-Baby Bash), and the uncensored music video is impossible to find on nearly every song. I mean it's annoying as hell when the sound just blanks out in the middle of the video. They could at the very least make a Vevo Uncensored or something. But sometimes they go overboard, on Candy Shop-50 Cent I think the blocked "lick". And some songs are meant to have lots of bad words, like Colt 45-Afroman, the song is about his many sexual encounters, and about 25% of the song is blocked because of it.

They try too hard to censor. Eminem - Stan had a bunch of words confusingly censored. They censored "Shut up," "suffocates," "die," and "vodka," and didn't censor "ass." And in a censored version of Eminem - Berzerk, they didn't even try to blur out his middle finger. They just pixelated his entire hand. Well done, now we definitely can't see that finger. - naFrovivuS

9 Stupid comments

Gr I hate these. "thumbs up if your watching this in 2012! " no retard I'm watching it in the year 350 on my irock. But even that joke gets old after about a week or so.

It's quite simple, really; almost every other thing on here is almost entirely the fault of trolls, of whom we cannot exactly complain, now, can we? Now THIS, on the other hand- why, only around fifty percent is directly attributable to the intentional troll.

Some are so stupid like in a video of funniest moments of jennifer lawrence this pig of a man said "She's the kind of girl every guy wants." and thankfully, someone with common sense replied "You're only saying that because she's famous." Honestly, that guy was an idiot. - maddyparrot22

€First! ”, “Like if you’re watching this in < >! ”, “Same! ”, and “IKR” comments just need to stop. Please just be original for once...

10 Screamers

Since when do people have a sense of humour about when people get scared by them and they can get heart attacks by them as well. I agree that scarers more like are annoying and they should be banned for life for good. Sheesh, people can be so stupid these days. I got scared by ghost caught on tape and scary blue dot pop up. So avoid these screamers, they're the maze game, scary tic tac toe, what's wrong with this picture, ghost caught on tape, toy story secrets, kfee commercials, behind the scenes of scary car advert, follow the red dot, optical illusions (most), spot the difference, scary DO NOT WATCH!, kikia, not for children, the elmo song (safe for kids) and many more.

I got scarred for life by the innocent car ride

I know me too I thought it was just a car ad. Then that zombie pops up and nearly gives me a heart attack.nearly fell out of my chair! - MJfan119

My first screamer was the scary rocking chair. I think I was 8 or 9. These kinds of things don't scare me anymore. The reason I saw it is my parents let me be on the internet unattended. When people get pranked by these they are usually little kids and old people. Little Kids scream and run out of the room. Old people can get heart attacks. There are reports of people DYING from these. I saw two videos on YouTube titled:"5 year old reacts to scary rocking chair" and "5 year old reacts to scary make game." Why would anyone do this to a 5 year old!? I love YouTube but I hate these.

Screamers destroyed a part of my life, screamers brang out a TPSD with me and sometime,... I hurt myself, I yell and I cry, the exorcist's screamer makes me suffer over and over...

The Contenders

11 Fred

I used to like this channel, but them Lucas Cruikshank sold his channel and used the money to buy some stupid vehicle... - thunderstar1124

AGREE! No one wants to hear a kid with a baby voice rant on and on about how he hates cabbages

They do Fred videos on the Lucas channel a little now. - Dragontree102

12 Disrespectful Comments

Actually many people jumped into conclusion and proclaimed that they think that you didn't understand them and they tell huge amount of insulting words - ronluna

With flaming comments that tells you are a noob, stupid, idiot, moron, dumb without saying it in a nice way

Like "i don't know where you're from and hobbies but you're dumb" - ronluna

yes, there are many people who don't care what are writing - MatrixGuy

My favourite YouTube channel is child friendly and has roughly 110K subs (I think) and the comments are full of trolls swearing even though children are on the videos. Someone sent the YouTubers inappropriate mail on a mail video but the YouTubers censored it. And two of the people on the channel are UNDER 18 and yet people leave comments saying they are "hot". Some could just be creepy teens but some could be disgusting people. UGH. But seriously DON'T SAY THAT STUFF ABOUT AN UNDER 18. - Lunala

13 Constant Layout Changes

Right when you're used to the old layout... A wild new layout appears! - HunkOfJunk123

I feel like they're getting worse every time. Please decide on one layout, for the love of Trump.

I like it when they keep it simple - TwilightKitsune

All these new layouts are complicated and way too modern.

14 Chain Letters

I see a lot of "PLEASE DON'T READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE NEXT NIGHT" and "Say your crush's name, cover your mouth, post on 10 other videos" -type chain letters all the time. Like you're really and honestly and truly going to get your crush the next day if you post these. Come on.

Like your'e really gonna die in the next two hours. come on.

It happens a lot on videos with transformations, magic, or anime. They always tell you to say you want to be _____, then kiss your hand, and to post it on another 4 videos then say transform. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

2011 to 2012, the age of chain mail

15 10-second Clips of Concerts Taken on a Cell Phone

these cheap ass videos should be deleted

It is very short and you can't see whats happening, if you are going to film a concert bring a real camera and film at least one song. - dragon13304

I am a video lover not a commercial lover. - aeromaxx777

I do watch a video that is too short. Why bother uploading a video that is too short?

20 The 10 minute rule

It's so annoying, when you're watching a T.V. episode it's cut into parts because of this stupid rule and then you have to switch to the next part. - purplemonkey123

At least that's nothing compared to excessively stupid ads and greed, the main problem is that people are making stupid, gross, sexual, and drugged up videos for money, they can't respect their fans. - nelsonerica

So… a video can only be 10 minutes? This ain't gonna be good for my YouTube channel in a couple of days.

I never noticed this rule, well, anime are usly full eps
