Video: Become a YouTube expert

Want to know some of YouTube's tucked-away tricks? We go in depth to show you some that can improve the way you watch and share you videos.

Last week's guide to becoming an expert at YouTube was quite popular, so we decided to do a follow-up in video form.

Included are some of our tips from the guide that could have used a little help from on-screen examples. We think you'll find they're quite a bit easier to understand once you see the before and after; especially in the case of YouTube's machine tags, which can change the way other people see your videos.

In just a few minutes we cover:
• How to make YouTube always play the high quality stream
• Focus on just the player, and not all the other page elements with tools like Theeter
• Setting the specific time when a video starts
• Creating a self-playing list, and embedding it somewhere
• Changing the way your video looks with YouTube's machine tags

I've embedded it below. You can also catch it in its full-HD glory over on CNET TV .
