  8. Dear YouTube,
    I have a very important question for you. In Poland, we do not have any informational channels about drug use, safety nor harm reduction. You are constantly banning the one and only channel that was valuable with regard to knowledge and harm reduction.
    PLEASE explain to me why and how can you do this? You've just erased movie that had 1700 likes and 7 dislikes, what kind of algorithm do you use? I personally want to have access to important information with regard to my own health and you, talking about freedom of speech and such, are taking my rights away! If you are really what your pose to then honour your word and support freedom of speech, support creators who have dedicated their lives to help others, support knowledge that is worth saying out loud.

  11. yo nunca e a vierto una cuenta de yutu me sale vevo cnanell i un montón de nombre me jaquiaron mi cuenta esto es estafa yo se quienes lo están asiendo no soi yo ok

  12. Na Google habt ihr noch zu wenig Geld? Ihr verdammten Arschlöcher. Bei jedem Video Werbung. Die die für das zuständig sind sollte man auf der Stelle erschiessen.

  13. Why did Youtube decide to put the Search watch History ,on the right side of the Watch History home page?Very annoying and distracting.Should be away to opt out of this annoying search bar or bring back the old way of Searching Watch History.

  14. my you-tube history was always fine, but today 14/04/2018, I watched a video, and then looked at my history, and the last 4 videos were not thee, how do I get the history to work once more ???

  15. 'send feedback' I want to clear several in my history, likes, favorites and others but I can't, only 1 by 1 or all… Not a fan… Put it back how it was please

  16. I couldn't understand why do people dislike such a beneficial and useful video just like this ?!!! If you didn't understand it or it is difficult for you to understand still you have to like the video and support the creator for his efforts to help you …please, audience be positive and more thankful ! By the way thank you for this amazing video it was really helpful !

  17. What's with the search history? Think I'm on about another search history that's in this video, what I mean is everytime I watch a bunch of videos, I can't seem to find them when I click back, it takes me back either to my home or subs lists?? Not to the video I watched before? I'm finding this very frustrating because sometimes I would like to watch 2 videos recommend down below and now if I click 1 I can never find the other one again! Not easily anyway! And now my recommendations are full of mainstream lists and watchmojo, buzz feed, Jennymcarthytv? Etc, Wtf? Iv never watched any of this and never would! I use YouTube for history and conspiracies, whatever is goin on is makin it really hard for me to find the content I'm iterested in. 😡

  18. Wondering when the youtube video and youtube music history will be separate. I often watch some videos for a few seconds at a time so i know i can continue them in my history list later on. But seeing all the youtube music i've streamed, makes for my history very cluttered. i would scroll forever (it seems) just to get to the video i first started and now want to finish. Something to update in later future i hope?

  19. بدي سال سوال انا صور عندي وصوط ماعم يطلعو كيف بدي سويون ماعندي فكر ابدن

  20. I am a bit confused! YouTube and the whole industry should set standards to abide by. At times and many times a new YouTube is not understandable because of poor voice quality! Often switching YouTube among many increases the problem!
    Also links are outlined in different colors and ticks. 1 standard is sufficient. It stresses the viewer! Again on the tech side lots of improvement needed. Last but not least what is the benefit of registration !stop giving commands explain the benefits! Voila.

  21. how could i get my music history from past? i cannot see my favority songs videos that i collected in the past… it is no more there,,,help i love my music…

  22. GROW UP AS ALL UR B.S. IS  EARTHLY  TEMPORARY CRAP. U KNOW WHO I DIRECT THIS TO ! I MUST BE ON YOUR MIND DAILY FOR YOU TO ACT LIKE A KID AND CALL MY MOM'S HOME ALL THE TIME ! KEEP IT UP, AS IT JUST SHOWS ME YOU CANT GET ME OFF YOUR MIND. I WONT RESPOND TO YOUR IGNORANT CHILDISH ACCUSATIONS! P.S. STOP USING ILLICIT SUBSTANCES AND GET A REAL LIFE! LATER GOD BLESS ALL! GOODBYE AND GOD PLEASE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US!

  23. Did you know that if you invoke a select few "no-no words" in your search query, YouTube excludes them from your search history completely? This includes certain offensive words that nevertheless have historical significance and may be searched for legitimate reasons. Google is a cancer and it needs to be eliminated. Change my mind.
