Stuff NOT on youtube
A lot of shady shit going on here. Use uBlock Origin and a few condoms.
Sports Streaming Sites
News Streaming Sites
Movie and Live Television Sites
Documentary and History
When something is dumb, crude, and cruel, it is usually referred to as a monster. I am taking the side of many content providers. Youtube is the monster. When censorship, demonetization, and other random fuckery occurs, you know a media conglomerate is pulling strings to steer viewers away from content that they desire. We see it in all other forms of social media, but when you consider how great Youtube started off, compared to what it is doing today, you know something dastardly is up.
In a world full of streaming garbage, actual human beings make content on Youtube from time to time. I try to make sure my links are to everyday people instead of those stupid reddit channels that have a computer generated voice just re-reading posts. I also try to limit my viewing of "reaction" content because most of them are just disingenuous fuckos who act like they don't know who Led Zeppelin is or that The Wizard of Oz is a movie.
If I see a guy, gal, or team actually trying to make good, wholesome content, I will try to pay attention. This usually lasts until they annoy me, or do something stupid enough for me to turn off their channel forever. That is the main reason why I created that list of links. Almost all of them are people that offer something other than just begging for Youtube bullshit.
As for professional production on Youtube channels... Yes, I am aware that quite a few of the links that I have listed above (Bon Appetite, Simon Whistler, etc) are actual companies that pour tens of thousands of dollars into the quality, content, and production of their videos. They may be Youtube suck-ups, creating content for money or for publicity, but at least they create content that is half way interesting. The Hot Ones challenge is one perfect example of this. However, as fun and interesting a highly produced and slick video may be, I still like watching some guy out in the woods, with one camera, building something.
This guy almost fully summed it up for me:
In 2005 up until maybe 2010-2011, YouTube was a social network site where you could broadcast yourself and watch original videos like Charlie Bit My Finger, Chocolate Rain, Urban Ninja, Evolution of Dance, Smosh (when they were good, and Nigahiga (when he was good).
Now YouTube's basically a low-quality streaming service filled with ads and low-quality YouTubers who make the same reviews, bad gaming videos, and stuff just to make money. It's a shame that YouTube went from an original social network of fun videos to a safe haven for the richest 1%.
Suggested youtube Alternatives
I will soon begin to add my own personal alternatives to youtube here, but as of this time, I can only add:
YouTube changes their detection scripts regularly, which means there might be times that you encounter their message. There's no way around this if you want to remain logged in. It should only happen in brief periods of time after they change scripts and before we updated our filters. You can visit this page to see if the latest script has been fixed already. If it has and you get the message, please read the thread carefully.
- Activate the uBlock Origin icon and select the "Open the dashboard" icon in the interface that opens.
- Switch to the Filter Lists tab.
- Click on the "purge all caches" button.
- Select the "update now" button afterwards.
This removes cached content from the add-on, which may include outdated instructions on dealing with YouTube's attempts to display ads even while an ad-blocker is enabled.
When you reload the page after you have followed the instructions, you should notice that the video loads normally again. No ads will play while watching it on YouTube.
youtube Throttles Firefox
A Google spokesperson had this to say: We've launched a global effort to urge viewers with ad blockers enabled to allow ads on youtube or try youtube Premium for an ad-free experience. Ads support a diverse ecosystem of creators globally and allow billions to access their favorite content on YouTube.
youtube has been on a monetization push recently, as it began blocking ad-blockers and pushing users to buy youtube Premium. That move makes sense in many ways, as the platform needs to make money to survive and compensate creators who depend on the platform for their living. But some other actions by youtube make less sense. Users are now reporting that youtube has begun slowing down its desktop website for some Firefox and Edge users, and we are perplexed.
Then, this was found:

- I really don't like to call Youtube "social media" these days, with how they control and direct their content.
- It's because GoogleYouTube has become a blatantly manipulative, insidious company that employs some very unscrupulous, devious, and downright toxic people. It's because they have an endless multi-tentacled agenda and not-so-ulterior but highly objectionable motives.
