Hey everyone, I'm Sharon Vaknin from cnet.com with "5 YouTube Tips You Should Be Using." Here's a tip for when you're sharing a video.
Let's say you're watching Epic Meal Time and you want to link your friends to the point in the video when these guys weave a bacon cup.
The easiest way to link to a specific part of a video is to right-click it at the point
you want to share and select "copy video URL" at current time.
When somebody clicks that link, it will take them straight to that point in the video.
I don't know how, but YouTube has quickly become one of the most popular ways to listen to music.
It's my "go to" for listening to new songs or discovering new music even if I have refiltered through all the cover songs first.
YouTube realized this and launched a little known tool at youtube.com/disco.
Here, under the name of an artist
or song, and YouTube will automatically create a playlist for you based on what you chose.
It's their answer to Pandora.
It's not nearly as good as Pandora and it only works for music, but I hope YouTube will develop it to make playlist for things like Funny Cat Videos.
Now, signing to YouTube with your Goggle account or YouTube account to use the next tip.
Once you've done that, take a look at the video player because it can do a lot more than just pause and play.
On the bottom of the player, there's a button called "add to".
When you click this, the video will be added to your "Watch Later" playlist.
If you click the arrow on the right, you'll get the option to add the video to a different playlist or your favorites.
And you'll see these two shortcuts on any YouTube thumbnail when you have over one with your mouse.
You can check out all your playlist by clicking on your user name at the top of any page and selecting videos.
On the left, you'll see your playlist Favorite Videos you've like and my favorite, your history.
I always watch awesome videos and then can never find them, so history comes in handy.
And finally, my favorite tip.
When a video is buffering, you get that spinning circle.
Whenever you see that, hit any arrow key on your keyboard and it will turn into a game of snake.
You can trick it into happening anytime by pressing the space bar to pause a video as soon as you hit play.
Now, these are only some of the most useful YouTube tips.
So, if you have something I missed, let me know on my Facebook page.
