    I feel obligated to finish this video now that i was guilt tripped to watch whole video and not click through....

      Another problem with YouTube is the way their content, series etc. isn't held to the same standards they hold creators to. If the have foul language it's ok, if you drop the f bomb your content is demonetized immediately. I could make a list of these things, but screw it, the fairies in charge will do it their way anyways.

        Don't switch to 60, YouTube as a platform isn't there enough to push it reliably to all players. I already don't watch some channels because I can't play them smoothly. I never got why YT can't do 60fps or HDR right yet I can play a 70GB 4K 10-bit HEVC video at like 25% load in any other player.

              the tree planting cannon im not even that suirprised that it took a bit to gain traction considering that was like the 6th video in my sub feed about trees and yours kind of got sandwiched
              so i hit watch later and figured i would check it out when i had time which i did

                if your views were hemrophaging so bad im surprised you didn't start doing mid rolls
                i know the roast had mid rolls but that was massive
                ,most people dodnt mind there being 1 mid roll on a 12 to 15 minute vidieo or even 2 or 3 if its 20 plus minutes

                  so why does youtube not want you to show the analytics
                  it isn't against TOS then what could possibly be the issue
                  if anything it just gives viewers mor einsight

                                This was an interesting and engaging wan show in a while. Tbh I'd take 2k or even FHD 60fps superfun content and give ur cameramen a but chill but that's just me.

                                      I have just upgraded to a 5G router but before that I only had a 9mbps download with five peeps using that connection. From time to time I'd manage to get 720 but I couldn't with Paul's Hardware at 60fps. I much prefer 30 unless the content requires 60, hides imperfections more as well. I think it looks amazing on P Hardware's sit down stuff but I do not think it's worth the extra horsepower. Additionally, to have the "correct" motion blur at 60fps, the shutter would also need to be switched to 1/120 rather than 1/60 so you would need more lighting, which would be difficult in dark conditions and might add more noise from boosting the ISO in dark run and gun stuff. Additionally, it would give less leeway to get rid of any lighting flicker.
                                      I watch videos at 1440p on my 1080p monitor to get a higher bitrate, it reduces compression artefacts in high movement shots dramatically, a higher frame-rate at 1440p would require more power which could affect gaming whilst watching your vids. Additionally, my second PC can play 1440p without dropping frames but not 1440p60fps.

                                      Now, these are all extremely first world problems but a recap is, it might affect a small part of your audience in accessing your videos. I would respect your choice though if you decide to go that way around.

                                      I also want to add as a young camera operator: any tiny bit of weight makes a huge difference, all my mentors have back problems from carrying PMW-500s and its predecessors and they sure wish they could have made use of lighter kit (which wasn't an option) back in the day. A lot of the "old" crews are not able to reach retirement age and have to stop earlier.

                                        I didn't watch the tree cannon, i saw a bunch of videos about the same thing from a lot of channels so i kinda ignored them all together, seemed like not real content.

                                          IMO preferring 30fps is just being used to it, I can't imagine any person looking for the first time at a video thinking 24fps looks better than 60

                                                Ok Linus the fb video wasn’t interesting at all. Also the tree canon while cool was the thirtyth tree video in the subscription list one video about planting trees was more than enough.

                                                  If I wanted my content at 24 FPS I'd buy a 24fps monitor

                                                      I dont understand the whole Framerate discussion. 24fps is not "artsy". On my 60Hz Monitor, 24 does not work well. And I can not see the difference between 24 and 30. 60 FPS is great for slowmotion, thus the phones start recording that normally and can be problemlessly downsized to 30

And like half a minute after they start reading the superchats and there is a superchat from 'Sander' asking if he smokes weed. I guess this sounds as a minor coincidence, but my name is Sander. lmao

                                                                      The way I use youtube is: I have a bookmark to the subscription page.
                                                                      So the tab "Subscriptions" in the sidebar. So I never vsist "Home" or "Trending".
                                                                      The only time I encounter videos from creators I'm not already subscribed to, is when there are recommended videos from other creators on the right side.
                                                                      I usually neither subscribe to those creators nor leave a like on the video though.
                                                                      Those usually just serve as some kind of filler content until somebody else I subscribed to uploads something new.
                                                                      I also never click the bell. Since I don't have a shit load of creators I'm subscribed to, youtube serves me all the videos anyway.
                                                                      (and I just hate notifications in general)
                                                                      And since we're on the honesty-train right now, I have adblock, ghostery and various other plugins of that kind enabled at all times.
                                                                      So I'm one of probably many people who are not really interested in the advertising game youtube plays.
                                                                      Even if adblock is disabled, most ads break because of anti tracking plugins anyway.
                                                                      I let adblock show the ads that are non disruptive though. But again, they usually don't show up because they're just packed with trackers and break.

Ie glove and boots if Mario or Fafa swear and it beeps funny they’re criminally unknown YouTube show with puppets and for adults and kids.... but in late night (Desus & Mero in Showtime) or stand up... nah - worst is movies in cable lmao tho. It depends on the comedian too, the way it’s used and said...
