    Thumbs up Youtube Red

    So I immediately sugned up for the free month of Youtube Red.

    I already used Google music so it made perfect sense.

    However, one thing Im really excited about is Youtube background play, actually being able to close your phone or open another app while Youtube continues to play, but it doesn't seem to work.

    Anyone else start using this service yet and get it to work for them?

    What are the perks of this? If it's just ad free, well then, ad block plus I thank you.

    If you bought it for ad block only, I'd agree. Its like having any premium streaming music service.



    Also, I fixed the issue

    What the fukk??

    A feature that should have been put in place over 5 years ago and now they are trying to charge a monthly subscription for it?

    That is ridiculous. They should just fix the player so it can play in the background.

    LOL You dont make faulty code then wait 5 years while everyone whinges and then "fix" it for a fee.

    Lol at people who think youtube won't block adblock. It's google... they're making a self driving car, i think they can handle a little coding for adblock. Many sites already do it.

    IF you're on iOS get a tweak to play in the background or protube.
    For offline videos, just use a downloader.
    Ads = ad block

    And they're charging $10 for something you can easily do with a quick google search.

    But they'll make money from it sadly.
    Peace, Love, Positivity.

    Angry

    Strong reading comprehension in this thread.

    As I said, I already use Google Music for my streaming and the two pair. It's also a free month trial.


    I was just seeing if anyone else was going to try it

    Not a single mention of how this supports content creators?

    The majority of income from youtube red (meaning a minimum of 51%) is going to be paid out to content creators based on time viewed and number of youtube red subscribers watching the videos. This kind of chit is what supports the people you enjoy watching, you know, the people you deny revenue to by blocking ads.

    Bigger channels have a lot of overheads, that money doesn't fall out of their asses.

    The problem is (from what i've read) that even if you want to support your favourite creators, your subscription will just go mostly to the biggest channels with the most views, even if you never watch theose channels yourself.

    It seems a bit counterproductive to be a fan of some channel(s), and then subscribe to YT Red, only to end up putting more money in the pocket of bigger guys like Pewdiepie... or other people whom you might never watch (and guys like him already make INSANE bank, regardless of 'overheads').

    It should split each subscriber's revenue to the channels he or she watches, tbh. If you really care about supporting certain channels, you might as well donate to them in other ways (EG Patreon, etc).

    Like letting pre-rolls (ads) run on their videos.

    Point remains, that you get your share of the youtube red pool of money based on how many youtube red subscribers watch your videos.

    Of course a channel with 5,000,000+ subs is going to get more than a channel with 10,000 subs, thats the idea, if someone like pewdiepie has 100 red subscribers and the other guy has all 10,000 subs as red paying subs then he is going to take more of the pool based on how much content he provides. If you're putting up one video a week you can't expect to take mroe money than someone putting up multiple videos a day(hitting millions of views).

    The system they have implemented is about as fair as it gets.

    Its red subs vs content provided vs content consumed (including total time of that content consumed). It stops people putting out hours of chit a day to cheat the system.

    This system rewards having red subscribers and providing quality content AND its 100% optional. The system is pretty flawless.

    YouTube Red is now replaced by YouTube Premium, and for folks that are either hardcore or moderate YouTube users, it's definitely worth checking out

    if you had google music you should already have youtube red/premium. They are one in the same, despite the different names.

    I signed up for google music back at launch so only paying 7.99 a month still and I was rolled into the youtube Red/premium with out needing to add or do anything.

    EDIT: oh wtf this thread is from 2015 lol.
