I tried to finish setting up AdSense monetization on my YouTube account after having tried to set it up a few years ago and giving up when I never heard back from YouTube . . .now: [more inside]
I lived through the Napster thing real-time. The outcome was, tech-that-encourages-slash-facilitates-copyright-violation-is-illegal. So why doesn't the YouTube server farm disturb the powers that be? [more inside]
After asking this question, I am now wrangling helpful strangers into lip-syncing to a song, and I need somewhere to host our video that won't slap an ad on top of it, or worse, block it for copyright violations. Details inside. [more inside]

I am creating a YouTube channel and a couple of associated social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr). I figured I'd have come up with a name by the time I finished editing my first video. However, that's not the case, and I find myself basically ready to launch but with a lot of uncertainties about name. [more inside]
Youtube has always struck me as kind of a waste land, geared towards 14-year-olds, but I've gotten interested in a particular vlogger and watch the channel as a sort of seven-minute daily dose of reality tv. So now I'm curious--what do you watch on youtube on a recurring basis that is interesting and intelligent?
I got a Kindle as a Christmas gift, but I can't seem to upload photos and videos to Youtube and Instagram. Before I return this, is there a way I can make these work?
My 8-year-old son received a (much-asked-for) skateboard for his birthday a few weeks ago. Yay! But neither his father nor I have ever skateboarded, nor do we know anyone who does/did. YouTube offers approximately 1 billion skateboarding videos...steer me toward age-appropriate videos/creators he could watch to learn the basics over the winter and be ready in the spring. Also any other resources would be appreciated!
Awhile ago I saw a very strange art video in which a woman is putting on lipstick, then proceeds to cover her entire face, then her entire body, in pink lipstick. [more inside]
My kids and I Iove "Good Mythical Morning," and watch it every night. For feminist reasons, I'd like us to additionally watch something just as funny and in the same style -- but with women hosting it. Suggestions? [more inside]
There are a few YouTube channels that I watch where the posters' full-time jobs are via YouTube/Twitch. I know you can monetize your channel/partner with YouTube, but you must own all the content--every last piece of it. The details of monetizing even state that you cannot monetize videos of yourself playing video games (unless you wrote the game yourself or have permission to do so). So, how are these people making a living off YouTube using content that clearly isn't their own? [more inside]
I got one of those $50 FireOS tablets, and it works okay... EXCEPT for Youtube videos. Sometimes it's okay, but most of the time it just hangs without playing a Youtube video. I assume this spotty performance is because it's not using an official Google-YouTube app? Anyone else have this problem? If I try to put Android on it, will YouTube actually work any better? (I don't want to brick this thing if it wouldn't help anyway.)
For a number of reasons, YouTube is overtaking streaming and other TV as the main way I consume moving images at the moment. My son watches a lot of Lets Play videos, and I enjoy them. But what else is there on YouTube.... for me? [more inside]

You have a new cell phone (and contract) and you are totally in love for six months or a year. You receive the scheduled system upgrade (!) and everything is peachy. Until one day, YouTube decides it doesn't work on your phone anymore. [more inside]

I saw Crimson Peak over the weekend, and, separately, I've had the Sleeping Beauty waltz in my head all morning. I'm in a waltzy mood, and want to watch youtube clips of beautiful, cinematic, sweep-you-off-your-feet waltzes from the movies. What are your favorites?
My stepson (12.75 years old, tall, sensitive, excelling in his 7th-grade computer classes) asked if he could set up a YouTube channel to post gameplay and commentary type stuff. He currently spends most of his screen time watching that sort of thing and playing along (various, mostly iOS games). I'm only vaguely aware of the phenomenon, being An Old, and my initial thought was "I do not want to let this kid be exposed to YouTube commenters." [more inside]
My 6th grader has become very enamored by these guys and would like to dip his toes into the youtube gamer world. He has an xbox one (without kinect). What's the cheapest, easiest way for him to simultaneously record his gameplay and his running commentary (picture within a picture - not just audio) as he plays?
I'm looking for Let's Players/Streamers on YouTube who aren't assholes to women. Are there any good recommendations for who I might want to follow? So many times now I've started watching someone's video and then out of nowhere there's a weird misogynistic comment, or someone will seem decent and then I learn they're actually a vocal GG supporter. At this point I want to stop gambling with my time. [more inside]

Hi everyone! Not looking to copy or plagiarize - but I am just getting ready to launch a YouTube channel and I don't know what software I'm going to use to edit videos or much about how to get going. I really like the type of introductions used by YouTuber Marzia. Do you know what tools she uses to make them? More in post. [more inside]

My laptop is a Dell Latitude E4300, and it runs Windows 7 Professional. I have home wifi through Charter. Though my signal always tests strong, I have a lot of issues with video playback on Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, pretty much all streaming sites. The video gets slow or stutters or there are sync problems with audio/video. It doesn't matter which browser I use. I've tried lots of things, which I have listed below the cut, but none of them have really helped. [more inside]

I'm interested in finding a site / YouTube channel / similar portal that shows only the "action" portion of sporting events. For example, a Youtube channel that would edit out all of the footage from NFL games, showing only the time when the clock was running. MLB has clips of key pitches/hits on their site (as does the NFL), but not the whole game from what I can find. Can anyone point me in the right direction of a full game trimmd down to only the "action"?
