yes i know there are alot of threads already about youtube and the copyright claims but here is what you get when you try and listen to a new single by your favorite band

And then it gives you a completely un realted video, youtube used to be like a that really cool teacher you had in high school who let you talk and mess about but now he's turning into the menepausel old woman who gets angry when she an't here herself shouting at some poor guy becuase he dropped his pencil.

Is this starting to become a trend? All these anti-youtube threads?

Youtube is starting to track down and delete video's with unlisensed music in them and instead you get directed to some completely unrelated shit.

First of all, that statement is downright false. Youtube has been very successful within the past several years.
Second of all, it is questionable whether or not it is headed in a downward direction, due to the amount of spam being uploaded, but if you don't like it, don't watch it.
Third, we all know that they have been removing videos that break copyright claims and all of that legal business, but no site can use stolen media or original work without the creator's consent. Even Newgrounds has to abide by that rule. Go steal some flashes and try uploading them here. See what happens.
Fourth, don't troll.

That statement is downright false.
youtube is made by four types of videos:
1) spammy kids being dumbasses (blowing stuff up, farting, hurting themselves, etc.
2) Stolen stuff. T.V. clips, music videos...and now that it's being hunted down and deleted, Youtube sucks even more.
3) People playing games, like Halo, Tf2, Brawl, etc. most of them are showing off something awesome they did, or a hack that doesn't work anymore.
4) F**KING RICKROLLS!!! Bastards posting the same video over and over again when it wasn't funny or a good joke the first time.

I think i'd like to see them remove all of the copyright infringe vid's, which would reduce them to a complete pile of shit because it'll remove half of the videos there. And instantly kill much of their ad revenue.


That's right I like guns and ponies. Problem cocksuckers?

youtube was never "cool". it's one of those things that only the people who used it to record their own videos ever thought it was "the thing to do". almost everyone else thought it was lame.

youtube is sweet just because it can't fucking host copyrighted material doesen't eliminate the sheer awesomeness of literally wasting 10 hours a day looking at LEEEEEEEEEEEEROYYYYYYYYYYY MMMMJENKKINNNS

and countless other epic wins

besides its pretty obvious people are all starting to say youtube sucks and honestly your a moron if you think something sucks just because a few stick up their ass people can't take the time to google the copyrighted material they want to see

It depends on what areas you lurk on YouTube. Now, there are plenty of videos uploaded by talented people such as short films and good, meaningful videos... Though, on the other hand, the rest can be complete shit, but who cares? Just try to avoid the spam, it's not that hard.

But, it is getting rather annoying now with all the fucking ads everywhere. Also, is anyone having troubles with the 'HD' option on some videos? It lags like shit for me. D:

I only watch a few people's videos. People I know that won't upload crap.

You easily find copyrighted videos on the internet it doesn't take very long. Youtube had a few great hilarious videos, but the rest is kind of shit. Most tv shows are available on hulu.com, and it is legal as well.

I stopped going to youtube when I realized any video that I would possibly find interesting would be on College Humor. All the rest is just pure crap or copyright material.
