The "Recommended" videos are just flatout lame, It just shows random terrible trash. WWE videos, Mr.Bean, Cinema Sins, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Vevo Music. Why the hell does Youtube think they can shoehorn crappy videos on people just to get their way.

It's unfair and really pointless.

Maybe you should use the "Not interested" button.

One good recommendation doesn't exclude the many shitty/cringy clickbait videos.

@takenstew22: Perhaps if I was forced to watch the cringy stuff, I'd be right there with you, but there's so much great stuff on Youtube.

And there's great people. It's my favorite place on the internet besides Comicvine.

There are very few times nowadays were YT has some good stuff hidden somewhere. Most of it now is just memes, politics and negativity.

I recommend you BitChude, it was created as a response to Google's socialist and fascist censorship on YouTube, especially against conservative views.

@takenstew22: Understood.

If you're interested in getting ideas for your exercise routine, this is a great channel that doesn't have doom and gloom: https://www.youtube.com/user/physicaltherapyvideo

I hurt my legs from jogging, lunges, and leg lifts, and I think this was a really helpful one:

This was a helpful video for finding exercises for my ab day routine.

I'm subscribed to their channel, and I just pick and choose which videos to watch since they upload daily, and I'm currently content with my routine.

What you don't get is that the video are not "random". Youtube (aka Google) has a complexe algorithm.

But you can read those articles, try to understand them (if they are not too complex), and understand why you get shitty recommendations:

Have fun.

ps: I don't get shitty recommendations !

@metalgary: I feel you man. I wonder if it's just with Youtube that you have problems with or is it with most Google products that you don't like?

Edit: Or do you have problems with other video streaming services? I'm asking out of curiosity.

I've been having some luck with the algorithm recently; even when it has recommended me an almost completely random video from nearly ten years ago it was actually alright. Use the not interested and don't recommend feature if it bothers you that much.

@metalgary: The algorithm is designed to show you possible interests, even if you only take a passing glance at said interest.

Try using the "not interested" option on any unwanted videos to clean up your results.

Google has recently updated it's recommendations and search algorithms. It will indeed dig up older posts/sites now.

It has in fact become a shitty platform. It's a leftist ran platform and if you're channel does anything they don't like you don't get paid.

@jb681131: I had a feeling they might have done because of how frequently I have been recommended old content recently. Not sure how I fell about it, on one hand some are quite interesting but it does seem a but 'aggressive' if you know what I mean.

No I don't know what you mean. If the content are relevant, what is the problem ?

@jb681131: As in my front page has been flooded with older content when I've later realised there has been new releases from channels I frequently watch that hasn't appeared there. Its nitpicky and maybe anecdotal but it seems to have been happening

My recommendations are half decent actually. It helps that I tell them what I don't like and when there something out of the norm that I watch I generally just go incognito if I don't want similar things in my feed.

Subscribe to channels you like. Click Like on videos you like. Post comments on videos you like. Click "not interested" on videos you dont like. Click "dont recommend channel" to channels you dont want to see.

It's not hard. Give the algorithm feedback and you'll get suggestions that will appeal to you.

YouTube + Netflix + Hulu are all I've had to watch since pretty much forever and they're all I need.

The videos I get recommended are far more interesting than anything mentioned here.

Your recommendations are based off videos you watched in the past, so you don’t like them look up different videos you actually do like

They ended liveleak, I understand it had swear words, bomb attacks, car accidents, riots and political protests....it was the world un-censored in a way like an un-censored twitter news feed

What else...most notable artists, edgy musicans animators and comedians are getting banned

Is there something still out there? old school blogs, Bitchute, old forum bulletin boards, Brighteon, old places like wordpress, Gab, medium, 4chan, steemit, COMICVINE ... but once in a while I will watch a youtube vid

The song Youtube / BBC tried to ban was DingDong the Witch is Dead.

In 2013, the song charted to #2 in the aftermath of the death, despite being totally censored and banned

it could have been NUMBER ONE !!
