5 Types of YouTube Videos
Posted by YouTube Fan at May 19th, 2012
YouTube – the website that has taken the world by storm. Video sharing was never this easy. Everyone with an internet connection YouTubes (watches/shares videos on YouTube). With millions of videos on YouTube and more being uploaded every day, one wonders what kind of videos are out there. We have categorized the most common types of videos into five main types:
If the song exists, you can find it on YouTube and not just old songs. These days a song is released online first, all other forms of media second. And no, it is not illegal, not anymore at least. VEVO, launched in 2009, offers music from three major record labels, Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, and EMI, providing you with the latest songs in high quality and it is not piracy.
Want to learn how to cook peach cobbler? There’s a YouTube video for that. Want a J-Lo inspired makeover? There’s a YouTube video for that. Want to learn L’ Hopital Rule for a calculus exam? There’s a YouTube video for that. Anything you want to know or learn, chances are that there is someone on the other side of planet who is already very good at it and that someone probably has made a YouTube video tutorial.
Funniest Home Videos
If you are a big fan of the show America’s Funniest Home Videos then you would be a big fan of YouTube too. You can find all sorts of videos on YouTube with people in all sorts of compromising positions. Ranging from children’s surprising reactions to baby panda’s sneezing to some unlucky bloke whose friends put a video of his singing online to cats pretending to be hats and what not. And of course, how can we forget, the very famous “Charlie Bit My Finger”. If you haven’t watched it yet, go YouTube it now. The video has 400 million views and is the most viewed clip that is not a music video. YouTube can provide you with hours of laughter and who doesn’t enjoy a good laugh.
We have already established that every song you can think of is available on YouTube. But what is interesting to note is that there is even a parody of all those songs, and not just one parody, sometimes as many as ten. And not just songs, there are parodies of movies, tv shows, political debates and even cat videos. Because everything is better when it is funny, or in case on cat videos, funnier.
Short for video blogs, vlogs have become the biggest thing since sliced bread. Where friends previously used to tell you to read their blog, now they tell you to watch their vlog. There’s also a wide variety of vlogs. There are funny vlogs where girls sit and complain about men, there are serious vlogs about issues like global warming, there are travel vlogs about tours and everything else you can think of.
