Ok now whats wrong with YouTube?

Post by Daehawk » Wed Sep 11, 2013 9:45 pm

Its not returning relevant results....for anything.

Like I want to see clips of an ep of Stargate Atlantis called Sanctuary. I do that search and I get comicon interviews with amanda tapping....who isn't even in that ep....I get trailers for other eps...I get fan made videos using clips and put to a song...I get NOTHING relevant to what i searched. It just did this today. Last night was fine. I could have searched then and it would return clips from that ep or the full ep. Now nada.

EDIT: And I only get 1 page of results..1 page!

I get 7 pages right now and 6,070 results in the upper right corner when I type "Stargate Atlantis Sanctuary". Hope you figure it out.

New problem. A video will be playing and I click another one....nothing happens...sorta...I see a line load real fast at the top and the video name changes...its as if it did change to the new video I clicked on...but the original video keeps playing with no interruption to it. Oh and my videos all start with the sound tuned all the way off.

Will my YouTube troubles never end?

Now it KEEPS wanting to link my YT to Google+. If I refuse it wont let me post replies. If I do accept to do it then it makes a brand new account or something. It makes me use a different avatar and stuff. If I temp disable linking to G+ then its back to not allowing me to reply and some other oddities.

I have told them repeatedly in the comment area I dont want to use this...its to he point i cussed the hell out of them last time...it is now showing like 8 accounts for Google+ to my YT channel.

WTH is going on?

Below is a pic. See my name down the list of replies that looks like Shepard from Stargate? Thats my normal YT account. But see the Mal from Firefly avatar in the open reply box...thats one of 8 accounts it keeps trying to make me use to reply in YT.
Enlarge Image

If I click the box to post a reply this comes up,....
Enlarge Image

Then if I click no or whatever this pops up.
Enlarge Image

The only way to unlimk the damn thing is if I am able to get to settings and temporarily turn off linking. Which then takes me back to not being able to post. It jus trefuses to leave me alone and let me use my normal account. I am starting to HATE Google.

Yeah, welcome to today's changes on Youtube.
If you want to comment now, you'll have to use either your existing Google+ account (which you likely linked to YouTube recently when Google did a large merge of accounts) or create a YouTube channel with a new name.

Well that sucks. I already had a nice YT channel just for my car vids. Sigh. TY. I wonder if I dont use G+ and instead make a new channel if I can use my same nick and have it find my videos?..or will I lose all my favorites and stuff too? Cause I really dont want G+

Seems if I dont comment it all stays the same. But thats lame.

I gave up and just made a channel with G+ linked..hell with it.

One last thing ...when I post theres a checkbox already checked to share my comment and I always have to uncheck it before posting. Is there some way to turn this off as default?

More looking at it and the way comments are handled now has got to be some of the stupidest shit there is. It makes no sense. I prefer to see them in order of time posted just like before...but NOooooo cant do that now. YouTube will die off a bit from this I think.

It's part of their effort to improve the comments on youtube. Content creators have been complaining about their poor quality for a long time. The jury is split as to whether or not it will work, but everyone agrees something had to change.

Google+ and YouTube are begging me to kill them!!

I have been logged in and doing fine. I click to add a comment and it pops up login/account as if Im not logged in. Not wanting to fool with it as Im heading out the door i escape it and leave. Come home and click to add a comment and I AM LOGGED IN ON SOME OLD G+ ACCOUNT!??? It says "Welcome to G+ ...Ready to post your first comment?"...No NO Im ready to fucking kill all you bastard apps thats what Im ready to do you POS service.


If only it would just die and we could get something to replace YT and G+.

Now I have to spend an hour trying to figure out how to make it understand which account to use and find a way to delete all the others it forced me to create while trying to shove Google+ up it's own ass back a few weeks ago.

What I've noticed about the "new" Youtube is that everything works fine until I right-click on another video to open it in another tab while I'm still watching the first video. The second video does not open under my account, like it used to, and prompts me to log in, or set up another account if I want to post a comment.

So basically, if I want to post comments, I can only have one instance of Youtube running at a time if I want to post comments. And yes, I do like to post comments from time to time. There do exist some channels and videos that do have some relatively intelligent commenters (commentators?), and I have had some fun exchanges over the years. Not everyone who comments at Youtube is a drooling a-hole (though they can be quite prevalent at certain types of videos).

YouTube again. You know how sometimes people put the video counter number in the descriptions so you can simply click them to go to that part of the video....great for greatest hits videos for songs. But i click and nothing happens. It used to work....not sure when last that was though. Nothing at all happens now if I click a hyperlink counter in Yt.

As a side note I tried updating JAVA and it seemed to update but not update...not sure....says it updated but it will still want to update. I think maybe my java or something is hosed.

Bear in mind, Java and Javascript are two entirely seperate and different beasts, and Youtube should have nothing to do with Java whatsoever.

In fact, given the security flaws with Java, it's likely best to avoid even installing it (unless you have specific need of it for something like Minecraft).

Is the CanIrunIt page also on Flash? If so I may have a Flash problem instead. it NEVER works...unless I download the app. I already have the app but it refuses to work unless I uninstall and reinstall it then the web page will work...every damn time. So if that place is Flash too that may be it. Ill just go ee about grabbing Flash.

there's nothing wrong with Java itself - it's the browser web plug-ins for Java that are the security hole. remove those from your browser if you don't want to manage them through other means. (but the JRE and runtimes on your desktop - those are fine.)

More YT nonsense. Seems to simply not like my setup.. It has started failing to save videos I mark as favorites. I mark them...I see them marked....it shows marked...I go to favorites and they are not there. The last video I faved about 2 weeks ago is there as the latest one.

Accounts....why cant I delete them? It CONTINUES to log me in on the wrong account. I always have to change accounts. I ended up making about 7 accounts when G+ was giving me such a hard time and now it keeps wanting to use one of those instead of my main. Why cant I delete those?? ARGH.

When I check advanced settings it will let me delete anything other than the one I want to. My main one I can delete but not that one it likes to use. Maybe that is my main and the one I use is a alt....but damn YT.

Works for me. Although I hate that I have to log in much more frequently now. In fact, I never used to have to log in at all - it was automatic.

It's annoying, but no big loss for me. Most of the comments I ever made there have long-since vanished into the ether, and Youtube is a horrible place to try and make lasting friendships, so I've just come to realize that I really don't care if I post anything there, since nobody there really cares what I post anyway, especially if it's something intelligent. Their loss, not mine. And really, when was the last time you read a memorable comment there?

I do still log in to give a thumbs-up to a video I really like, but that's about it. And I'll post a rare attaboy to the video-maker if I think he or she did a really nice job, but engaging in "conversation" with other viewers usually is just not worth the trouble.
