    This doesn’t have to do with YouTube, but I’m having trouble with viewing comments on a certain Google Photos album that I belong to.

    Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. . . .

    YouTube evidently lifted the 650 limit in our favorites. . . .

    When did that happen? What's the new limit?

    I can't even remember the last time I actually favorited a video.

    Even though I was never particularly a fan of annotations, and I don't even miss them now that they're gone, one thing I am sorry about is that I never got around to experimenting with some kind of "interactive" video with it. Something kind of like the "Click-O-Rama" feature from those B. Happy Web Premiere Toons on Cartoon Network's old website, where the plot devices and the outcome would be determined based on what options you click on.

    Trouble is, I never could think of what I would do with that. Like, I'm sure it'd probably have Steve doing something stupid, but what would it be, and what could the options be for the outcome of what he was doing?

    Is anyone else having an issue of not getting notifications of when people respond to comments you made on other people's videos?

    It's very frustrating. I get notified if someone gave my comment a thumbs up from someone on said comment, but nothing if they reply. ******* YouTube....

    I'm the opposite; as far as I'm aware, I always get notifications on replies, but have never got a notification for being thumbed up. Sometimes my comments get hundreds of thumbs up and I'm oblivious... that would be a lot of alerts.

    :search: Egad! Another mystery...

    I don't always get notifications for any of those either. The only consistent notifications I seem to get are whenever the uploader gives my comment a heart, but other than that, I sometimes won't get notifications for someone liking or responding to my comments. YouTube and their Scrappy Mechanics. . . .

    Remember when YouTube wasn't run by robots?

    Neither do I.

    Holy crap, I can't believe it: looks like YouTube finally fixed the issue with the new video player cropping the bottom and right portion of the video, which meant I didn't have to zoom the page to 110% to watch videos in a decent size.

    Now wait . . . after I clear out my cookies, temps, and cache tonight and get back on tomorrow, it'll go right back to cropping again.

    Nope . . . two days later, and it looks like it's a permanent fix! Though, I still have to zoom in 110% for certain widescreen videos since the video player shrinks for them for some reason.

    Welp, since there's no longer the 650 video limit on our favorites list, throughout the week I've been refavoriting a bunch of videos I cleaned out from my favorites list to stay under that limit, and re-ordering my favorites list to put them back where they were before . . . even favorites that dated all the way back to 2006! (Not one of my good years, lol). So presently, my favorites are up to 770!

    Is there no longer a favorites limit?

    I tried doing some research and haven't turned up anything official, other than a thread on Reddit that suggests the new limit for favorites is a whoppin' 5,000! And apparently the thread is already three years old, so who knows how long ago they did away with the 650 limit.

    So YouTube just introduced probably one of the most useless new features they've ever made: the "Library" tab.

    Basically, it's nothing more than a brief summary of your playlists such as History, Watch Later, Favorites, Created Playlists, and such. That's all. It's almost like a copy of your channel page, just without your channel information or uploads.

    So... the theatrical view on YouTube is no longer there.

    Did anyone ever even use that feature?

    Now what was the theatrical view again?

    It was like a size between default and full screen.

    I used it. And now it's gone...
