When checking the Stats for Nerds page, all impacted videos show one of three codecs -- avc1.4d400b, avc1.4d400c, or avc1.4d4016.
Videos from channels with large view counts typically use Google's VP9 codec, which is why bigger channels are not reporting this issue.
Changing the quality playback for these videos to 360p changes the codec and causes them to play back correctly without stuttering. Only 360p works; even lower quality settings use the bugged codecs and continue to stutter.
Temporary Workaround: These videos can be forced to permanently re-encode at all quality settings with a different codec by using the Enhancement module to save over the video (even if no changes are made). This is only a short-term workaround for your critical videos -- it doesn't work for very long videos (>5 Hours), and only 8 videos can be queued at a time for reprocessing this way. We will need YouTube's attention to address the underlying bug with these codecs.
The stuttering typically gets worse as a video progresses. Check your older videos for these codecs and skip ahead to see if you detect the stuttering. If you do, for now, use the Enhancement module to re-encode your most critical impacted videos.
New details will be added to this Megathread as the situation progresses.
UPDATE 07/02/2018: The issue has been acknowledged by YouTube! Thanks everyone for posting your examples and helping to research the issue in the other thread.
For a few days now I've found that I can not tap on the video progress bar to move to a different spot in the video (I'm on Android and I used to be able to). I find that I need to slide my finger on the bar to move to a different point in the video.
Is this some new update? If so, then why? And if not, then is there any way to fix this?
Anyone else being absolutely bombarded by ads for YouTube's new music app? Like every video I click, there it is playing "I like it" by cardi b, and being as annoying as ever. And sometimes I get it 2 times in one short video. Like can Google be any more obnoxious?
I just had to rant about it before I went crazy.
I honestly have not seen a single ad for anything else for the last 2 weeks.
In case you're a baby who was born after 2011 I'll fill you in on some youtube history. Before the youtube 3.0 layout, youtube was trying to be a social media website, while also being a video sharing one. Youtube during this time had a friends list, private messages, and had a lot more channel customization options. You could change the DIV colors, text colors, fonts, background, have a banner only if you were a partner, and you could also watch videos on your youtube channel during the 2.0 youtube layout.
Today I logged into youtube, and saw something strange, a comment box next to the bell button. I checked it and I was stunned to see that not only are instant messages back, but the youtube friends list is back too. People used to make fun of youtube friends back in the day, saying that they were useless. It's just strange seeing them back, I always saw the days when youtube was trying to be like facebook and myspace as a failed experiment, similar to how youtube was trying to be like netflex in 2012 by having movies.
By the way, I'm not angry that the instant messages are back, I actually prefer this to the bell button because even this new incarnation of instant messages is a little more organized than the horrible bell that was introduced during the G+ merger.
brgoat makes videos about fortnite. videos contain dank memes, cringey edits, and much more!! u will not regret..
nah but forreal, I make really entertaining and comedic videos on youtube. I play fortnite but plan to play more games in the future such as bo4 obviously. I spent a lot of time editing videos for the dank memes. I only have 20 subscribers (just my friends) and I feel like my content deserves a little more attention because of my dAnK mEmEs. The picture below is a thumbnail of my most recent video (aka my funniest vid yet!)
ps: all my vids are in 1080p60 frames per second if you're a nerd and i play on the xbox one x :)
About a year ago, my school youtube account got restricted mode turned on by an administrator, and now all but 4 of my liked videos are restricted. Is there a way to import all of the liked videos including the restricted ones? I'm on mobile by the way. I can use both the app or a browser.
Every time I delete the comments, a new one comes an hour later. It's annoying. They also get bots to like the comment, making it near top comment.
I always preferred theatre mode over normal or fullscreen because it struck a nice balance between filling most of your screen, but still being able to see video stats and the description without having to go in and out of fullscreen all the time. The fact that the new theatre mode is basically just windowed fullscreen gets rid of this functionality and begs the question, "At this point, why not just use fullscreen mode?" I would appreciate it if YouTube would understand their own platform for once and change it back.
DSP has been dropped from Curse Network and by extension, YouTube. he is no longer getting money from ad revenue. He is considering making another AdSense account. this will be the third one after the last two have been banned. Obviously this is not allowed, you can only have one AdSense account. He also says he is considering being done with YouTube.
I want to start a YouTube channel (as a hobby) where I'd mostly be commenting on things and talking about anything that interests me and potential viewers.
I got so many video ideas and things to talk about but I am unsure how to best approach it.
Shall I just whip that camera out and start talking to it? Should I do a script of notes first?
The title says it all, but one of their recent videos garnered 16 million views in less than a day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBJ5_Qs4j5A
