There seems to be more and more comments on the lack of production quality on EEVblog2 content (which is of course the whole idea of EEVblog2). Maybe that's inevitable as the channel grows?

I think its inevitable, its also easy (for me) to open a video and miss the "EEVblog" name has a 2 at the end.
Changing the channel name, title, or adding intro text might be an option, but I would just ignore it.

Wow, also (currently) 505 thumbs up, 58 down.
Is people unhappy for the 'unpolished' eevblog2 format?

There seems to be more and more comments on the lack of production quality on EEVblog2 content (which is of course the whole idea of EEVblog2). Maybe that's inevitable as the channel grows?
Speaking of quality, I love the new music/flix at the end of the main channel's videos. I liked the ancient introduction clip with the Altium board spinning on the screen.

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

It's in the title. "Proper" EEVblog videos have "EEVblog #xxxx" in the title. Pretty hard to mix up the main content with the supplemental stuff, even supplement stuff I put on the main channel.

I think you overestimate the observational skills of some of those who watch your material.

Not only that, Brumby, but videos embedded on web pages do not necessarily show the title (at least not in a prominent way). That becomes easy to confuse between the two.

Perhaps add a short intro just like the one I mentioned before? (no, I have no hidden reasons, despite what I said two posts ago...  ::) )

Willing to bet its going to get alot worse on youtube to make $0.05.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/unilever-threatens-to-reduce-ad-spending-on-tech-platforms-that-dont-combat-divisive-content-1518398578

Not only are the advertisers waking up to the crap that their ads where played on, they are starting to get a clue that click farms, ad blockers, and such are making online advertising far less productive than claimed.

And it goes on and on and on.  Something will have to drastically change or online advertising will collapse.

There's nothing wrong with flagging some inappropriate content. The problem is that YouTube isn't able to do that reliably, causing appropriate content to be flagged too. If a system creates too much false positives it's the wrong tool.

Although I don't believe that online advertising will collapse - after all, marketing is what sponsors the internet and its free content since the late 1990s - the pushback is a move long predicted. The issue is the massive can of worms that it will open, especially in the definitions of "divisive content", "hate speech" or "fake news", which are extremely fluid these days. I can imagine one of Dave's rants being flagged as "hate speech" or "slander" where the only intent was to promote discussion about a specific topic.

Somehow I suspect the Youtube content reviewers will have much more work to do...

Maybe not a total collapse, but if online ad spending was cut by 50% or more because of all the fraud, bad PR, what does the "free" internet look like?

YT has an impossible task trying to keep all the advertisers happy.  By the time they are happy, might be nothing worthwhile added to their platform as the creators move on.

On the filp side, maybe we see a group that's 180 deg apart from the current SJWs that boycott the advertisers because they pulled out of the beloved platform.  Now that would be a fun development to watch.

Now they are approving videos that weren't even demonetised in the first place  :palm:

Perhaps now they were annoyed by your mails, so they're automatically review all of your videos manually but forgot to switch of the OK-Email if everything is allright.

I see a fantastic market opportunity for some/thing/one to replace YouGoogle as it is clearly going down the drain.

I know this is a long shot but ....


A few months ago here in the US was a national news story that our government has over 300 billion license plate numbers in a database and can track every car over the last five years.

In Calif, the max chars in a plate number is 7.  In some of Dave's video is a CA plate with 8 chars.  Could YT be also tracking plate numbers (why not ?) and his 8 char plate is confusing them?

For the Youtube part, Twitch certainly seems to be taking a lot of gamer traffic, I think that’s pushed towards live streaming rather than on demand, but ISTBC. Vimeo is the other obvious one, but its community remains tiny compared to Youtube. Somewhat interestingly I’ve regullarly been fed Vimeo ads on Youtube for the past week or so.

Even Philip DeFranco’s getting regularly demonetised which seems bizarre as I’ve always considered his content to be up there with just the kind of non-controversial content Youtube should be promoting.

Without any other evidence, this is indicative of broken algorithms, very likely as a result of AI, where nobody really knows how it’s making the decisions. So much for their supposedly really smart programmers they have there.

Regrettably Youtube is still the #1 video content site, but I agree, we could do with some competition.

There is an interesting variation on the topic: Looks like Youtube starts to block and disable channels completely, if they don't allow ads, even if the owner don't want ads or money from it.

It’s bizarre, one of my channels I put forward for monetisation in February, and I’m still waiting for Youtube to make a “decision”. It keeps getting put back to the end of the month.

It’s not a big deal for me, it only has around 130k views/month, but it’d be nice for it to pay for Youtube Premium that’s was just opened up to the UK yesterday.
