What's more? It's very simple, works so effortlessly, and also allows us to share content on other social media networks with just a few clicks. Having said that, there are a few tricks that YouTube has got up its sleeves no one told you about. Here are such tricks and tips, check them out below.
Get the Video URL at current time
Not everyone wants to watch a full video just for that single portion of it which keeps them hooked. For this reason, YouTube allows you to share the URL of the videos right from where you have paused, so that, the person you share the video with won't have to watch it from the beginning.
All you have to do is to pause the video at that point where you want your friend to start from, right click, and select "Get video URL at current time" and then copy the new link displayed on your screen.
Stay updated with popular videos
YouTube can be a great source to find out popular videos such as the recently released popular videos, music videos, latest trailers, and more. Just visit Popular on YouTube to find out all the recently released video content and stay up to date.
Refine your search results
At times, you may not get the exact search results you were looking for, make use of filters to refine your search and get specific results.
Some videos on YouTube may have restrictions that prevent them from playing in specific regions or devices. You can simply bypass these restrictions by changing the URL.
To do this, simply copy the id from the URL, erase everything after the .com, add 'v/' followed by the id you copied earlier that's it.
For example, if this is the original link "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ny3hScFgCIQ" it should look something like "https://www.youtube.com/v/ny3hScFgCIQ"
Set default video quality
You don't have to change the video quality every time you intend to see a video. You can simply set a default video quality by heading straight to YouTube settings located at the top right corner of the screen. From there click on account settings, select playback, and then check "always choose the best quality for connection and player size'" button.
