II. Other Youtube Tips and Tricks
1. Repeat Same Music Video
Many people use YouTube to listen to their favorite songs. I too do the same all the time. Sometimes, we want to play the same song over and over maybe because of that instant situation or mood.
For e.g., someone’s birthday party is going on, and you want to play one good ‘Happy Birthday’ song repeatedly. In such a case, the trick that I am going to show will help you a lot.
There is an easy way to repeat the same video in a loop. This is a very easy process and many have seen that option but when it comes to using that, we forget that. Let me show you.
First Play the Video you want to loop. Then right-click on the video to get the options. Select Loop.
Enjoy watching or listening to same music.
2. Dark Theme
Using electronic devices like TV, Laptop, mobile at night can cause problems in the eyes. The blue light coming from such device disturbs our sleep cycle and even a retina damage.
But We want to watch youtube at night. Right? So how to do that? How to watch without causing problem in eyes?
Well, there is an easy solution to this. Youtube has default dark theme setting to apply.
Open youtube and Click on your profile picture at the top right corner.
Select the Dark theme option and turn it on.
You will get a dark interface whole over the youtube page.
Don’t worry about the video.
The video light is still good to watch.

3. Get More Info
All youtube video has title and description provided by the content creator. But There is one more option in youtube that shows other information related to video and also your connection.
Using this option, you can view the information like Video codec, color, loudness, connection speed, video Id, and other info. This information is shown above the video so enabling it while playing video is not good.
Go to youtube and play any video you want. Then right-click to get options.
You can close that info box clicking on the cut bottom at the top right corner.
4. Create your own playlist
We make our own playlist in our music app. We separate the best songs and put it in one playlist. Playlist are made on different genre. Oh! I don’t need to tell about this. Let me go directly to playlist in youtube.
You can create your own playlist and make it public too so that other also can view your playlist. You can give any name to the playlist and choose different videos to be included in your playlist.
Here is all the playlist of my youtube.
I have created different playlist for different types of videos.
Now I can go to my any playlist and watch video of my need.
To create a playlist, Play the video that you would like to add to the playlist. Below the video, there is Add sign shown in the figure below. Click on that and Select Create new playlist.
Give the name to the playlist you want.
When you find other videos related to playlist, you can follow the same process and you will see your playlist name. Just tick the playlist and done.
This way, we can add our videos on a separate playlist so that we can only watch the specific video we want. It is better than the Watch Later feature.
