    I have a question about approving comments.
    I must approve all comments before they are public on my channel. My channel is for patients with chronic pain. I am a physician and there are a lot of people posting their symptoms, results, telephone number, email, etc. I must protect their privacy, so, I need to approve their personal information. However, the channel permissions does not allow me (as owner) to give this feature to anyone else. I am the only person who can approve comments. Can you please change that? I need to give access to a comments manager to approve all comments, so I can have time to answer them.

    A Serious Question:
    Does the Youtube Algorithm Punish Channels Using Low Views, When They Suddenly Post Videos Outside Their NICHE?

    Thank you for the info, Rachel! Here is a question: Should we add shorts to a playlist? Is it helpful for discovery? YouTube automatically adds to the shorts section on the channel page, is it enough?

    YouTube has declined drastically over the last few years. I'll tell you what would help us creators big time, If you guys stop pushing shorts so hard! And it would help the viewers as well, by not turning their brains to mush, and creating zombies with no attention span. YouTube should have some degree of care about what they're doing to society mentally. But they're only concern is likely money. Since you've released shorts, the view numbers are declining rapidly on our long form videos. The problem with that is our long form videos take a lot more time and energy to video and edit. So basically we're being guided away from making actual proper quality videos and viewers are being guided away from watching them. It feels good to work really hard on a video and get good results because of that hard work. But that is no longer the case. Now we work hard to make a long form video with all the editing and everything and they just don't get seen anymore. It hurts to put so much energy into something and just get crapped on by sh!tty shorts

    This is probably my favorite series on your channel. And that speaks a lot because I LOVE the rest of the content too.

    A warning on experimenting with topics – if you put a lot of work into your videos, and care about how well they do: A video that appeals to a very different audience will likely not do well, and would do better on a new channel dedicated to that audience. If you have a variety of topics and suddenly one does very well, it will skew the audience for your channel, so that topics appealing to other audiences will not do so well, and you will be stuck having to produce videos for that channel that appeal to that audience. That happened to me.
    If you don't put much work into your videos or care how well they do, or don't have an audience yet and are looking for one, then yes, experiment away.

    Helpful as always, thanks! Good to know deleting jibberish comments doesn't hurt your video's performance! 🙂 Also good to be reminded about focusing on building an audience in a certain subject matter….

    Hello. Nice looking vid. I got a surgical suggestion on a topic as artist.
    Now my workflow is uploading wav to bandcamp then make a video for youtube plus drive-upload not knowing if it lasts forever plus on multiple drives due to excess limit.
    Better would be one drive like upload guaranteed forever plus automatic youtube video generation with option for viewerr slower video or just picture or just sound. I could make much more music instead of data logistics.

    youtube algorithm is just s**t, wait i will give you reason
    I said so because this so called algo is forcing people to behave like zombies , I mean to do the same thing and repeat it indefinitely like zombies do, Your system don't recommend videos on individual video basis but recommends them on the basis of content the youtuber uploads the most. I can tell this thing because i have more then one channel and a same typ of video performed completely diffrent on both channel , it got lots of views on one channel as that channel was uploading that type of videos and got no views and no click through rate on other channel for which this content was not usual
    so the conclusion is youtube dont serve videos on the basis of videos but on the basis of niche of channels and this forcing us to behave like zombies
    we cant change we cant move a bit from where we started becuse this thing will make our channel dead. thanks

    I just split my channel into 2 channels, as I began to see that's the only way my silk painting videos would reach the right audience. It's frustrating to me that YouTube won't allow us to have sub-channels. I already had 5 topics going when I found out the algorithm tries to suggest all my videos to the prevailing channel audience, rather than the best audience for each video. If I could divide into sub-channels, each subscriber would get videos on the right topics, and I wouldn't be starting from scratch on getting 1,000 subscribers on one topic and having to delete and re-upload multiple videos, losing all the comments, views and likes they had.

    Good, but only one question Normal need "shorts" counting time because it's normal time in real time wenn some people play any video. And " it's time iven it's second. Why not make short videos count the viewing time, even if it is short video, or what video is a time regardless of one second, or what time and video is a viewing time. It doesn't seem normal to me, because shorts are still a time, no matter how many seconds.🕛👍🥰♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

    I have a question does YouTube use AI to examine a thumbnail of a video to compare it to what viewers usually click on? Also a suggestion with subtitles YouTube does a good job of the auto subtitles but I would like a way to edit them for the errors instead of needing to do it for the whole video from scratch.
