How to Get the Most Out of YouTube

Additional Services

At $11.99 per month, YouTube Premium is an ideal subscription service when it comes to renovating your experience while giving you the YouTube you know and love. One of the greatest advantages of YouTube Premium is its ad-free nature. Say goodbye to the blaring advertisements that precede cookery guides to choral music and skip straight to the heart of your favorite video. You can also save videos to watch offline, another great benefit for those who travel or live in remote areas. Doing this will ensure that your video will never stop halfway through again. Other benefits include being able to play videos in the background while you browse and YouTube are even starting to develop shows under the banner YouTube Originals. 

 

Converter Tools

One great way to make the most of YouTube is the ability to take YouTube videos with you wherever you go. ConvertVideo is a YouTube to Mp3 converter that allows you to convert any video into an easily transportable format that you can that download to any device and watch away from the YouTube app. This service is absolutely free, meaning that you can convert unlimited videos to Mp3 that can be downloaded straight from their website, making taking your favorite videos with you an uncomplicated process. This can also help you to watch videos on browsers that struggle to support YouTube videos directly. 

 

Video Quality Report

If you have trouble with your video quality or resolution when using YouTube, Google’s Video Quality Report may be the answer. This extension shows you data on the quality of video that your internet provider supplies, enabling you to understand and fix what is potentially damaging your YouTube experience.

Using YouTube for social media influencing

One of the staples of social media that can be found on just about every platform there is gifs. If YouTube is one of the sources you use for producing content for your blog posts, then turning sections of your own videos or of related content that your followers will enjoy into gifs is a great way to help promote engagement with your own online presence. The easiest way to do this is by using the Gif Maker tool on Giphy. This is an easy tool to use to produce quality gifs in a short amount of time that can be added to your videos, in your blog posts, or in messages on Facebook and Instagram.

 

Easter Eggs

It is not a well-known fact, but YouTube actually has a whole host of Easter Eggs that you can find to make the site look and behave differently in amusing ways. For example, if you type the word ‘awesome’ while a video is playing (not into the search bar, just on your keyboard) then the progress bar will start flashing in different bold colors. Another Easter Egg is to search for the ‘do the Harlem Shake’ into the search bar, and an icon will appear which says ‘pause’ in the upper left corner. When you click on this icon, the website will start to do the dance for you.

 

Perfect for a party

Karaoke is a great addition to any house party you want to hold, and YouTube actually has a function where you can turn music videos into Karaoke tunes for everyone to start singing along toAll you need to do is get Musixmatch lyrics for YouTube which will go through its extensive catalog of song lyrics and apply them in real time to the songs you want to sing along to. This tool is also great for finding out what the lyrics to songs are when the singer is hard to understand or is rapping particularly fast.

 

Make sharing the specifics easier

This might be one of the most simple YouTube hacks you will come across but will also prove to be one of the most useful. When you have a very long video and you want to share a specific part of it with a friend or, if you are working in a teaching capacity, to show your students a specific section, you can share the video with them starting at the precise time the extract startsSimply play the video up until the starting point and then hit pause. Then, do a right click on the video and select ‘copy video URL at current time’ to share the exact extract you want them to see without having to download and edit the video for ages. There are many different options to help you get the most out of YouTube, whatever your budget is. Whether you would like a more comfortable viewing experience, or the ability to watch videos anywhere and at any time, there is a set of applications to suit you and your needs.

Robb Vices Subscription Box

A surprise selection of rarities, curated to provide a spectacular moment in time – experiences that until now, were reserved only for the few (very) fortunate.

The publisher’s modernly-debonair son, Daniel Curtis, has gone 3D with it and now Robb Vicesis a subscription box.

The boxes are surprises each month, filled with the most small-batched wonderfulness; all curated around a story and meant to stoke and satisfy curiosity about the good life.

The contents are worth $500-$800 and feature incredible things like technologically-wild writing instruments designed by Ferrari’s Pininfarina, hand made Italian Finlay & Co sun spectacles, luxe Euro-styled Bluetooth speakers or rare elixirs like the first creme de cassis made in 1874 from the house of Gabriel Boudier or the Louis Vuitton-owned Glen Morangie, maker of some of the world’s most spectacular single malt scotch whiskies since 1843.

Memberships must be applied for and are offered either month-to-month or for 3, 6 or 12 month periods. For approximately (depending up on what subscription chosen) $100, every month, you can gift someone else (or yourself) with a box filled with rarities that together have been curated to provide an exquisite moment in time.

Since it’s creation in 2016, Robb Vice collaborations have been done with chefs such as Daniel Boulud and Marcus Samuelsson and collections from brands like Lalique, Master & Dynamic and Highland Park. Master milliners, Worth & Worth offered the making of a bespoke hat; the box included a tape measure and swatches of handwoven Honduran fabric from which to create it.

This Spring, one of the boxes will feature all that it requires to experience the most moving of music on original vinyl. We can’t tell you what the products are – but if you remember the delight of buying a diamond tip needle, it may ignite your imagination about the contents.

Robb Vices is about discovery; getting something in the mail that creates a spectacular moment, that until now, was reserved for the very few fortunate.
