Always On YouTube? Here Are 6 Tips, Tricks And Secrets To Make Your Binging Better

If you're one of YouTube's estimated 2.5 billion users — the world's second-largest social media platform after Facebook with 2.9 billion users — then you already know a lot about this 18-year-old video platform.

You may have heard of (or may have subscribed to) YouTube Premium (from $8 per month), which lets you watch millions of ad-free before and after videos (as well as play ad-free music), and YouTube TV (from $11. 99). ) /mas) is a live streaming service that includes live streams from over 100 broadcast, cable and regional networks.

But there's so much more to YouTube, including lots of tips and tricks for getting the most out of the service, whether it's "official" things you can do, like company labels, or third-party "hacks" for lead you to improve your sessions

Here are six things to try.

Sign in to YouTube

While it's not required, we recommend signing in to YouTube (with a Google Account) as any playlists you create will sync across devices.

Once logged in, you can like and comment on videos, share them on social media, upload your own content, subscribe to channels you like, and report or block videos you don't like.

Download videos from YouTube

If you know you'll be offline for a while (for example, you have a long flight and don't want to pay for Wi-Fi), you can download the video to watch later.

The official way to do this is to sign up for YouTube Premium, as downloading videos is one of the benefits of this service.

Banned by Google, there are several websites and apps that allow you to download YouTube videos for offline viewing. One of the fastest ways is to add "pp" after the word "youtube" in a web browser, which will take you to a website to download the video.

For example, Yuvraj's video with Purple Rain during the Super Bowl halftime show,, has ?v= to 7NN3gsSf . – YES.

Please note that if you download videos for offline viewing, the content creator and/or copyright holder will not be able to monetize your viewing.

Create GIFs from YouTube videos

Another unofficial way is to create an animated GIF from any part of a YouTube video.

As you probably know, GIFs that are still and looping are fun to post on social media.

Go to and click "YouTube to Gif". Now copy and paste the YouTube video link into the search box. After the processing is complete, you can choose the quality, duration, speed, as well as the start and end time.

While it's free, creating GIFs with this tool requires an account, and you'll have a small watermark unless you pay for a premium account ($11.95 per month).

Respect copyrights and only use your own YouTube videos to create GIFs.

Share videos from a specific location

If at any point you want to share a video on YouTube, it's easy to do so on a PC or Mac.

Click the share button and find the "Share to" box below the link and it will show you where you are at the moment you are watching the video (e.g. 1:04am).

Choose this or any other time: When the recipient receives the link and clicks "Play," it will start exactly where you want it.

Master YouTube shortcuts

If you watch YouTube on your computer, you can do more in less time by learning a few keyboard shortcuts. There are about 25 of them, but here are some examples:

  • Sidebar: play/pause.
  • M: Stupid / Stupid.
  • Left/Right Arrow: Look forward/backward for 5 seconds.
  • > and <: Speed ​​up or slow down playback.
  • Up/Down Arrow: Volume Up/Down 5%

There are also some YouTube shortcuts for mobile, like double-tapping the left or right side of a video on a phone or tablet to jump forward or back 10 seconds.

Browse before visiting the site

Why do something that requires two steps when you can do it in one?

Instead of going to and using the YouTube search box to find something to watch, do it in your favorite web browser to watch the same video.

For example, in Google, Bing, Yahoo! or DuckDuckGo, type something like "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. Part 3 on YouTube Trailer" and you'll see a thumbnail of the video in the search results, which you can click immediately to play.
