YouTube Red Original exclusive content coming 10th February

"The time has come," the Walrus said. Or in this case YouTube said. October last year it launched the new YouTube Red subscription service but ever since that day, all that subscribers have enjoyed were ad free viewing and listening. In little less than a week, YouTube will be delivering the other half of that promise: exclusive, original content. On February 10, YouTube will be releasing a new online video series and three full-length films featuring some of the most famous characters and groups on YouTube.

YouTube adds looping feature

YouTube adds looping feature

Going to YouTube for your day's audio selection is nothing new, and neither is jumping through hoops to make sure the video loops -- you're either forced to use a third-party service that loops the video automatically, or you have to hunt down one of those excessively long videos that stretch on for an entire work shift. YouTube has finally (finally) acknowledged this reality and added a feature to make life easier.

Sony’s “Let’s Play” trademark attempt foiled by another company

Sony’s “Let’s Play” trademark attempt foiled by another company

Let's Plays have been around for some time now. If you're not familiar, a Let's Play is where someone records themselves playing a game, adds commentary, and uploads it to someplace like YouTube. These can be a great way to learn about a game, or just entertain yourself for a couple of hours. And since it's a term that's not company or brand-specific, Sony thought it was about time that they went ahead and trademarked the term “Let's Play.”

T-Mobile says it’s not throttling YouTube

T-Mobile says it’s not throttling YouTube

One of the coolest things that T-Mobile is doing for its customers is the Binge On service that removes data usage for certain streaming sites from your data limit. That means you can stream all the YouTube you want without worrying about destroying your data allotment for the month in a day. The catch is that all videos streamed are throttled to 480p.

YouTube up in arms over T-Mobile throttling video streaming

YouTube up in arms over T-Mobile throttling video streaming

Last month, T-Mobile announced a new program that, on the surface seemed like a great deal. Following its unlimited music streaming offer, the carrier unveiled Binge On, which lets users stream video to their hearts' content without cutting into their data allocation. But that comes at the price of quality, a price that not all video streaming services are willing to pay without their consent and is something that YouTube is raising its voice against.

Star Wars Bad Lip Reading adds Jack Black, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader

The Star Wars content you're about to witness has nothing to do with the "s" word, nor is it in celebration of The Force Awakens. It might be a LITTLE bit in celebration of The Force Awakens, but not directly. Unless you count the fact that Bill Hader helped create the voice for BB-8, but that's completely beside the point. Right now you're going to watch some Bad Lip Reading, or BLR, for all three of the original Star Wars movies. This is an entirely new epic.

YouTube videos now load while paused

YouTube videos now load while paused

Android users will be first in seeing a brand new "buffering" text in their YouTube apps when a video is loading. This is unlike the past in which a spinning "wheel of death" was seen or - worse still - the video would just pause without any indication that it was about to start up again. Today, Google provides some much-needed notification of what's happening. Almost like they're opening the doors to you, the user, allowing you to see what's actually going on in the app, in your internet, as your video loads.

YouTube said to be eying rights to stream movies, TV shows

YouTube has definitely grown way beyond its initial library of short Internet videos, many of them involving cats. There's YouTube Red, which asks you to puy $9.99 a month get rid of ads. YouTube Gaming is its answer to Twitch, now owned by Amazon, and its dominance in game streaming. And most recently there's YouTube Music that turns YouTube into a makeshift music streaming platform. Now all that's left is a paid subscription for TV shows and movies. Well, according to insider sources, that's coming soon too.
