Naa man.These thugs will live on after killing 'the tomorrow's engineers'
At a random electronic store, an eight year old girl next to me was buying enameled wire and soldering kit after referring to a similar video.She didn't even know ohm's law when I asked her. What if people like her, see this?

When I was working in Dubai, we lost a subcontractor to an earth fault on a generator. We shut the company down for 3 days while we all mourned the loss and supported those that needed it. The response from his immediate superior was "We have billion of them, we'll get you another one".

To quote Brad Majors : "Yes, life's pretty cheap to that type".

What to do?

Maybe, campaign to force youtube to add a flag for electrical hazard?

The only hazard recognized by YouTube is free speech. Much more dangerous than electricity.

Actually video violates Youtube policy by "inciting dangerous activity that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death":

https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2801964?hl=en

[edit] Please flag that video as dangerous.

There's a lot of people that work with exposed mains and even HV out there. But yeah, there are some that know exactly what they're doing. This thing just looks like crap though. I mean, if you're going to build something dodgy for an experiment, at least don't publish it as some sort of tutorial. :palm: Not even watching this as logged in (don't want more suggestions).

In that case, I should make "How to deadbug tube circuits". >:D

The problem is, this is how channels like Cody's Lab and NileRed keep getting busted. Youtube is stupid, they don't care if you put disclaimers or whatnot, sometimes they can't even properly identify what's dangerous. ::) Yet this junk still exists. :palm:

Did he just plug that into the mains?  :palm:

I must be learning something after all,...                     because,...

                                        a few months ago I would have thought that was some kind of cool magic or something.....             

                  now I know that is just plain effing stupid!

That's very dangerous right??

2:15 - touches the green wire.  :palm:

This specific video needs to be reported as dangerous, but its a slippery slope.  Where do you draw the line?   If Youtube were to ban all apparently electrically unsafe videos, it would gut most of Big Clive's content or even force him off Youtube, and similarly for many other scientific, technical and EE/EEE vBloggers.  OTOH at least there'd be fewer inanities from ElectroBOOM et al.

Youtube's ONLY interests are to acquire as much popular video content as possible to support their advertising platform without significant risk of loosing a major lawsuit or outraging mass public opinion.   Don't expect them to 'do the right thing' or even have the faintest idea where to find a consensus on what the 'right thing' actually is.

Any changes Youtube make, *will* be worse than the status quo.  >:D

I once posted a video of how to remove a lawn mower blade using a wrench, hammer and brick.   I was very proud of my technique until a few weeks later when I found a related video that showed that you could lock the blade by inserting a screw driver into a hole and then use the wrench and hammer.  I did remove my video quite soon after.

YouTube should be representative of all people.... stupid ones included.   :-DD

The description says:
Quote
NOTE :- WORKING WITH AC CURRENT IT WILL BE HARMFUL WITHOUT PRECAUTION AND EXPERIENCE
DO AT YOUR OWN RISK
In this video I am going to make transformer less power supply using some Zenor Diode and other components , this transformerless power supply circuit produce multiple volts

So it could be argued that it shouldn't be reported, as this circuit technically does have legitimate application.
But as there is no commentary it's up to personal interpretation.

There are several risks with such a circuit and without any safeguards, it will only take a component failure or a simple mistake for someone to be severely injured ... or worse.

The danger is in how easily things could go south.

Funnily enough that's about how most chinese LED lamps are designed (at least looking by bigclivedotcom YT channel). Hell, he went extra mile and added a smoothing cap there...

...But a couple of things all these videos have going for them are great opening graphics and music that makes it look like they are trying to outdo each other. That doesn't really make up for the sheer lack of knowledge and dangerous design though.

Most these videos look like they are documenting an unsupervised school science fair project gone bad.

On the scale of scary I would this is quite safe, I've seen youtube videos of people driving magnetrons with exposed anodes, high volts but luckily no match, phew.

There is a similar video, via youtubes recommended related videos, to click on the right hand side.
It seems to originate from the same country.

Most of its comments, are about using the circuit. Very few, actual comment on how dangerous this circuit can be.

The guy in the video below. Is demonstrating that even in the original video (in the first OPs post), apparently dangerous method of using this circuit, can be beaten.
It shows connecting to the mains without using a plug, by jamming in the wires, into the socket (3:53 in video, below)  :palm:

It has been built in an even more exposed way  (fully exposed point to point) :palm:

It is just waiting for someone to walk past and accidentally make contact with it  :palm:

He even demonstrates how to make/mess with it, while it is "LIVE", and touches it for long periods with his hand, while videoing.

tl;dr
Without starting a bad political thread  :palm:
My understanding is that some countries, have very bad safety precautions in general.
E.g. wires jammed straight into mains sockets, etc etc.
Which is generally NOT seen in the west.

At least he used some 1N4007 diodes.

I have seen similar circuits specifying 1N4002s.
