    Maybe, because the homepage was changed when I logged on this morning, but now it's back to the way it was, so I don't know.

    YT keeps throwing Honey Boo Boo videos into my recommended, and I don't even watch that spoiled brat! All I've been watching are Muppets, Classic SST, Hogan's Heroes, and retromercials now how does ANY of that relate to that creepy little thing?!

    Well they just recommended I watch Justin Bieber...I'm guessing that's cause I watch Muppet clips and since Selena Gomez was in the lastest film they feel the need to think I would wanna watch that. :confused: :rolleyes:

    Is just me, or did everything just became bigger in YouTube?

    I've been watching some things on YouTube just now, and that time bar thing no longer appears. Maybe it's not a big deal, but it sometimes is nice to look at how longer something is. And sometimes I'll just want to watch a certain part of a video and want to use the time bar to get me there faster without having to watch all the stuff that comes first.

    I know you couldn't skip time on videos at sesamestreet.org but at least you could look at how much longer a video is. Here you can't even see that time bar at all, though when you search for/find clips it still lists the running time before clicking.

    Seems to be there for me, and it was still there last night about 20 minutes before you posted this.

    Why am I the only person who doesn't have these "problems" everyone is talking about?

    Did you try clearing your cache?

    Probably because you're using Chrome, which is another one of Google's entities... I mean, I'm almost certain sometimes Google intentionally creates problems with their sites when viewed in IE or Firefox just to get people to switch to Chrome.

    Like today for instance, I'm having loading problems now: I'll click on a video to watch, and get nothing but a blank white screen, and refreshing doesn't even help. I also keep getting locked out of my account because they keep trying to force me to make my account public.

    I find that hard to believe. if anything, the loading problem is a flash problem, something I could never get working in IE

    Oh dear god...youtube looks just awful...

  11. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Hmm, I see no difference...

    I'm having to use Firefox until Microsoft fixes the security hack with IE, but I haven't cleared out that cache, so out of curiosity, I looked on IE, and again, I still see no difference. :confused:

    That looks similar to what I was complaining about a few pages ago before they changed it back... only this actually looks like an improvement compared to what I had seen.

    I found out why. You'll always get something idiotic in your recommended folder because either you've watched a video that starts with an advertisement (I guess in your case, anything Henson posts), or you have a video ad banner on your YT homepage, and while it doesn't get included in your history, it somehow counts as a video you watched. I've experienced that. I've never watched "Google Chrome [what'shername]calls home" intentionally.

    That, or someone puts something questionable in the video tags.
  15. Pinkflower7783

    Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    Is that what it is? Because I just got 5 Honey Boo Boo videos in my recommended as well. :rolleyes:
  16. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Thankfully I don't, but I got a bunch of crappy videos I'd never watched if you paid me because of those stupid ads. There's a way you can tell...

    sometimes under the recommended video, you have a blurb underneath that says "because you watched..." I have so many that say "because you watched Google Chrome: Dear Sophie" when that was an advertisement I refuse to watch anyway.

    I'll have to check because between Honey Boo Boo and Twilight I'm about ready to scream. ><
  18. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    I actually haven't gotten "Because you watched..." in a looooong time, but like Pinky, I'd be very much curious to find out WHY I'm being bombard with Honey Poo Poo because of what I watched... though I'd doubt it'd be because of ads or commercials: I always close that humongously huge eyesore of an ad on the homepage every morning, and if I see a video is about to start with a commercial, then I'll skip it altogether and move on.

    Doesn't matter. Happened to me on occasion. Apparently I watched a movie that's name was a line of numeric code, and it was a banner ad when I clicked on it to find out what it was. And the comments on the page were all "How did this get into my recommended?"

    And now because Ive watched Sesame Street they apparently decided I might like to watch Barney as well. :p
