Please revert back to the original comment layout
For years the comment section was at a reasonable place at the bottom of each video, making it easy to scroll through them while watching. A few months ago you abruptly moved the comments into an easily missable section under the description. I hated it. It wasn’t very intuitive to use, it wasn’t functional, and it made page navigation worse. Then a few weeks ago an update restored the original comment layout and I was overjoyed! Finally I could enjoy the app again instead of feeling like I have to fight with it just to browse comments.
But I guess it wasn’t meant to last. With the most recent update we’re right back to having these ridiculous segregated comments and I just can’t wrap my head around why anyone would think this is good design. Please put the comments back at the bottom of the videos or at least give us the option to toggle between layouts.
And shrink the recommended feed back to its original size. Right now the video thumbnails are so big I can only see about two videos at a time. Feels like a tremendous waste of screen real estate.
Sensors too many videos
1. This app is very good for the most part. Lately it has been censoring too many videos. I have to now go to other places on the web to see what I need to learn.
2. When casting there needs to be a way to change the play back speed of a video. It works on small computer, phone and tablet. It needs to work when casting also.
3. When casting I can have videos added to queue to play in order I choose. It would be nice to be able to set this feature for the computer, tablet and phone too.
4. It would be nice if I didn’t loose my active queue list every time I stopped casting. Than I have to set it up all over again . Usually I play videos I found and want to see 1 minute so they will be saved to history and easy to find again to set up again on my queue list.
5. The 10 second foreword or back is nice when casting videos. This feature should be available on tablet and computer. Stop start rewind is an extremely important feature for my use when learning. It would be nice if time were available in 30 second forward/back times also.
Moving the comment section back
By Leewan Leewan
It was a good app. Didn’t like the change for moving the on-going video to the small bar too much cos it really doesn’t let me view the video concurrently while I am scrolling through other stuffs because it’s so small. But it wasn’t a deal breaker.
Now the comment section is. It’s not user friendly neither is it intuitive. There are changes that just take time to get used to but it’s for the better, but the change to the comment section is definitely not one of them. The movement to scroll makes a lot more sense than requiring me to tap to expand. It’s entirely too easy to exit out the comment section when I want to return to all comments after I clicked into the more replies. I was more than happy when you guys changed it back the first time only to find it’s been updated again recently. Please stop trying to move the comment section can you?
Even if you had to do this, then at least let me swipe right to go back to the “all comment” after I clicked into one reply, instead of only taping the “back” arrow on the top left.
It’s great and extremely entertaining
By Hello ___
If your looking on a app to keep you entertained for hours and hours, I suggest you get this app. And if you want to be a youtuber, it’s very easy to upload videos. Also if you have about 10,000 subscribers you can interact with your fans by posting a message on a community tab. Though, if your under the age of 13, or your child is under the age of 13, Do not get this app! They’re many people who create very inappropriate videos or make sex jokes, There is some porn on it and very bloody pictures. Be careful on here. They’re is a lot of rude people on this app. Though if your child is over the age, it’s fine, the app is very entertaining and I promise you they won’t get bored.
-Suggestion for this app-
On the Community app, you can comment, and obviously the creator can like or reply to that comment. But, they can’t reply back to the creator. Can you please make it so we can reply back to the creator? And that other people can reply on their comments?
Incredible Resource for Knowledge and Entertainment
I love to read about traditional and Non Traditional subjects sparked by my Upbringing and influences. In reading I don’t have time to read subjects varied from my likes dislikes and opinions, However, on You tube I can also find things that are not necessarily my opinion and either learn or retreat from said information quickly as I browse through numerous subjects that may have been a college elective or an older sibling or parent turning me on to sci fi or other varied and adventurous subjects or my passion for History and Various Forms Of Music That I experienced and reminds me of times or passions I share with friends and acquaintances that may have had similar or different experiences. I also like the fact that I can benefit from friends acquaintances experiences and knowledge that I can grow from or Not. It’s a brilliant tool and I am happy to live in the communication age as a marketeer and Entrepreneur, who can see inside and outside the box, without Judgement.
Why change the 3 dots button????
I would use this ALL the time to state if a video is not interesting or if I want to save for later. Now it is super small and you have to hold it down for that same menu to come up, turning an action that used to take no time at all into a frustrating and time consuming experience. If you tap on the three dots it just plays the video, what sense does that make if I’m trying to access the menu. This change happened without me even updating the app itself. Please change this back, there was no reason to do that.
Also when a video finishes playing the next recommended videos pop up on the bottom of the screen making it hard to access the full screen button, so when I am trying to go in or out of full screen I almost always inadvertently press another video and then have to go all the way back out to get to what I was watching. Does anyone actually test these “features” before they are pushed out?
ETA I just updated the app on my iPad and now the search doesn’t work, this is like a horrible joke. Rollback this update I can’t find anything useful about it.
It was good...
So basically, I love this app for obvious reasons, but I have one problem; recently, I’ve have trouble with loading videos on mobile. Every time I click on a video underneath it says an error occurs, tap to retry, not even the “not connected to the internet” error. I’ve tried everything - tapping for almost an hour, restarting my phone, restarting the app, uninstalling and reinstalling, updating my phone, deleting the app, anything I could think of, and it still hasn’t worked. This error message is under every video I click on, and every time I exit and reopen the app it’s the same thing. The add pop ups underneath the video work and the videos work too, but not the catalog underneath. I just want to know if this can be fixed manually or in a new bug update. Also, the new placement of the comments is awful, sorry, had to tag that on. I really liked this app, but there are too many bugs for it to function properly. But it works fine on my iPad, I have an iPhone 6+, I don’t understand why it’s not working. If I could get a response that would be great, but a bug fix would also be nice.
the new update
this new update is absolutely atrocious. i understand having innovation towards wanting more for your viewers but the execution was poor.
The comment section is where I could be able to talk and relate to the interest of video and as i scrolled down i could potentially see the other videos that i wanted to watch. Moving the comments under the description is problematic because 1. it’s easily missable 2. it made going/making a comment more difficult 3. the fluidity of scrolling for other videos and going to the comments made sense 4. having the back button on the left side (in addition to muscle memory of clicking on the newly “escape” right side) makes it plain tedious.
the thumbnails are also an issue because they are too large. one video thumbnail alone takes up almost half the screen and with two of them it takes up the whole screen. less is more, and bigger doesn’t always mean better. please consider reinventing the layout because it’s problematic having people used to one idea and completely changing it.
Good app but...
So I love this app. I’m on here all the time. It’s got me through some tough times. I know that sounds cheesy but it’s true. Anyway, it’s kind of stupid how you can’t make the kind of content you want without getting a penalty. If the person in the video says a bad word it’s demonetized and I think that’s horrible. Maybe instead of that you could just flag the video so that kids know not to watch it. Or make a rating system so that parents can control the things their kids watch. Kind of like Netflix. But honestly bad words aren’t the end of the world. They would be in the pg13 section. Also I was fine with one ad per video but this is just annoying. Because you can only skip both ads if the first one is skippable. Also when does it end? Are y’all gonna keep going any maybe put in 3 ads? Maybe 4? Then we would be better off just watching regular tv I guess.
Like app BUT
I actually like this app most of the time, however now that my son likes to watch movies and we have watched the ones we have at home like 300 times each I wanted to let him watch new ones on my phone. Due to the amount of data it takes, we don’t live near any WiFi connections and I only have my phone to view them on, I wanted to down load it to watch later with out using more data. Unfortunately, I am unable to down load any movies rated for children. Now this seems ridiculous to me I would think it would be the other way around where some could not down load rated r movies so kids can’t just down load bed movies at will. I think it would be better if we could at least down load kid movie with a pass word or something if we can prove we are the parent at least come on that is why I use you tube to see music videos and so my son can see kid movies. But I only 5G so he can’t watch his favorite ones two or three times because it used all my data, To bad I really did like this app but now I don’t use it very much.
