Today, literally everyone is a user of video hosting YouTube. This is evidenced by multimillion -dollar views of videos per day around the world.
How to use all the functionality of the YouTube service
YouTube provides users with the opportunity to view rollers and whole programs of almost any subject: starting from channels about a healthy lifestyle and ending with reviews on technical innovations. And since YouTube began to belong to the Google Internet giant, the service began to actively develop and grow new functionality. But not every user is known about some capabilities of the service.
Loading rollers on a hard drive
The most common desire to watch video on YouTube is to download it to your computer. To implement this goal, there are a large number of programs and extensions for browsers. But the easiest way is to insert on the page with the video into the address line of the letter “SS” before the word YouTube. After pressing the input, the user will get to the video download page.
Complete buffer of the video
During playback, the service saves the service in the cache for only half a minute of the video. If the Internet speed is not enough for normal playback, the video begins to slow down. You can certainly try as in other services – to pause and wait until the video is loaded completely, but on YouTube it is impossible because of a short caching – loading the video for half a minute forward, the loading slope will simply stop, and will wait until the user continues to reproduce. To solve this problem, there is a special extension for popular browsers – Smartvideo for YouTube, thanks to which the service will completely load the videos in advance.
Slow down playback
Sometimes it is necessary to consider any point in the video that goes very quickly. This is especially true for teaching videos. To activate the function of slowing the video playback (as well as acceleration), it is necessary to convert the player to the HTML-5 mode, and new options will appear in the player settings for the choice of reproduction speed. In addition, the HTML5 mode provides more stable reproduction without brakes and lags, as it does not use Adobe Flash plugin resources.
Preservation of subtitles
Many videos of the service contain valuable information that may be needed in the future. In order not to do unnecessary actions – do not save the video on the computer and not write the text on the go, you can simply save the video subtitles. Especially for this, the KEEPSUB service was created. In this service, before loading the necessary subtitles, the possibility of translation into other languages was implemented.
Showing a certain moment of the video
When the video is long enough, and it is necessary to make the viewing begins at a certain point that the user wants to share with friends on social networks in the future, you can get a link with a link to this moment. To do this, while viewing the required moment, you need to click on the video mouse on the video and click on the URL receipt point with the time. The referral can be shared with others – watching the video will begin from the same moment.
Blocking the video
If suddenly it was necessary to reproduce the same video without a break (it can be a musical video or video tutorial of dance, etc.D.), then for the bloating of the video, it is enough to enter the word “repeat” immediately after the word YouTube (you will turn out youtuberepeat).
This is far from all the functionality of the YouTube service. There are still a large number of tweaks, secrets and extensions for browsers, among which, if desired, you can find one that will greatly facilitate the process of using the service. And we should not forget that many functions are written on the page of the reference information of the service itself.
