Today we use the Internet for almost anything, in this case we are going to focus on one of the Internet streaming platforms, Youtube. If you are one of those people who spend the day watching videos of cats or your favorite youtubers, in this tutorial we are going to explain a few tricks or tips that you can use within the Youtube platform. So let’s start with the best Youtube tricks in 2017.
The best HotKeys to use on Youtube
If you still do not know what HotKeys means I’ll briefly explain what they are and what you can do with them. A hotkey is a keyboard shortcut that allows us to perform actions inside the platform. In our case, we will use these Youtube Hotkeys to access and take full advantage of this world famous video platform. Here I am going to show you and explain some of the best Hotkeys that will make your life much easier and easier on Youtube:
If you press the J key of your keyboard you can go back 10 seconds in the video that you have in the screen, something very useful if you have lost some detail.
If you press the key L of your keyboard you can advance 10 seconds in the video that you are watching and therefore you can go moving throughout the process of the video.
With the keys K and M you can pause and mute the video respectively. So if you do not want to use the mouse or you are far away, you can always access to stop the video through the K key or even mute all the video through the M key if you need to completely mute the video.
To move to the beginning of the video you just have to press the 0 key. Something that can be very useful if you missed something right when starting the video.
Now I’m going to show you some of the hotkeys that I think are the most interesting:
If you want to jump to a part of the video you just have to click on the numbers of the keyboard from 1 to 9, and when you press them you will jump to the percentage of the video you want. For example if you want to go to the middle of the video, all you have to do is press the 5 button and jump directly to 50% of the video. Useful, right?
If you press the “,” or “.” keys of the keyboard what you will do is to move a frame in the video, ie if you have to find an exact image inside the composition of the video you just have to press The comma keys to rewind a frame or comma to advance a frame within that video.
These have been the most useful and important HotKeys that you have available to your hand from now on, so you know already you can start to implement these important tips for Youtube.
Advanced word search on Youtube
If you are a beginner in the SEO world, or if you already have some knowledge to find the best tools and methods, I will teach you how to find the best keywords within the YouTube search engine. So you can focus and find exactly the video containing the words in question.
If you add the term “allintitle” before your search within the YouTube search engine you can select only those videos that contain those words. An example would be “allintitle: baby laugh” and therefore only results will come whose title contains the words funny cats and so we can filter many more videos that we are not interested.
I hope this advice has served to center your searches, since Youtube has millions of videos and content and sometimes if you do not look good or even get lost within the platform.
Turn on notifications for your favorite Youtubers
Youtube has made a lot of changes to its platform and has changed the logarithm since its inception, one of the innovations that YouTube has implemented is the notification campaign that appears at the top of YouTube channels. When we subscribe to a Youtube channel, we will receive notifications every time the youtuber upload content to it, but we will not always receive all the notifications of everything that you do and you may lose or be late to some video uploaded on that channel. Here’s how to activate these notifications.
When you subscribe to a Youtube channel through the button “Subscribe” you will see an icon of a bell right next to that button. If you press this button the bell will ask if you want to receive all the notifications of the channel to which you have subscribed, so we activate this option and that’s it. Now whenever your youtuber upload content to Youtube you will be among the first people to receive those notifications. We go on to explain the best tricks of Youtube in 2017 that we have left to get the most out of this video platform.
Changing the speed of videos on Youtube
Many times we find videos very fast or with a lot of content and we need to process all the information in that video. To do this, all you have to do is use the “Speed” option that appears in the video settings. You can choose between several speeds so that the video plays slowly or quickly and so you can find out everything without losing anything.
You also have the option to choose a Youtube video and watch it on your TV, even if it is compatible you can choose the option “Watch on TV” so that the video is displayed on the device of your choice.
These have been the best Youtube tricks in 2017 that I hope will serve you to improve your user experience on the Youtube videos platform. See you in the following tutorials on the web.
