30 Secret YouTube Tricks & Tips That Make YouTube Even Better

All people are eager to view videos these days instead of reading. We all knew how to use YouTube or kids are also aware of how to search on & how to play YouTube videos. But still, we are unknown of some exciting tricks listed below...

1. Download Any YouTube Video in 3 Sec

Type 'ss' in URL after www and before YouTube and you will be able to download the video very easily. Automatically you will bounce to download page where you will see options to download your YouTube video quickly.

2. YouTube to GIF

Type 'gif' in YouTube URL just before YouTube . It takes you to YouTube GIF. Here you can adjust the length of your GIF.

3. YouTube Keyboard shortcuts

If you don't want to use the mouse for some time while watching YouTube videos, then use these short keys.
k - Play/pause
j - rewind video 10 seconds
l - fast forward video 10 seconds
m - mute video
Number '0' - go at beginning of video
Number '1 - 9' - bounce to 10% to 90% of the video.

4. Tired of a mouse, then lean back and watch YouTube

Still feeling lazy as you know short keys? Getting tired by using a mouse while watching a YouTube video? Don't you worry just type "leanback" after https://www.youtube.com & tap ENTER. Now enjoy your YouTube through keyboard only. or
Go to: https://www.youtube.com/leanback
Spacebar - play /pause
Left/right arrows - push forward /backward
Home/end - starting /last seconds.

5. Link to a Certain Time in a YouTube Video

If you want to start a video from a certain point of time or share a particular part of the video, there is no such kind of option. But trust me there is such a useful trick, let's see what it is.
Just add "#t=the time from where you want to start video" after the URL link; like URL link #t=02m04s. The video will start with 2 minutes, 4 seconds. Same way you can embed particular part of a video from YouTube to your website. Add "# t=02m04s to the original YouTube video & link/paste to your website. Now the video will start from time mentioned in the embed code.

6. Auto Replay for YouTube

Sometimes we are addicted to favorite YouTube videos (songs, jukebox, or funny videos). We play it again and again as soon as when it goes to the end by hitting the replay option. But we may get annoyed of hitting replay button again & again. Imagine if you will be able to replay your favorite video automatically as soon it ends without tapping replay button, then that will be interesting. For this, just type "infinitelooper" in place of YouTube in the URL & enter. You will be taken to another external site. There you will be given an option to loop the video /part of the video.

7. Disable YouTube Video Autoplay

Go to the right top of the page; you will see a button for autoplay. Switch that autoplay from unable to disable; it will turn gray from blue. Now you are free from playing next video automatically. In "theater mode" the autoplay option appears on the right just below the video player.

8. Search YouTube Like a PRO

The process of finding the exact word matching videos from the set of countless videos on youtube is time taking. You may have to land on several pages to find your exact match. To overcome this; type "allintitle" before your searching keywords. This trick will show you the videos of selected keywords.

9. Make YouTube Videos Buffer/Load Faster

Taking too much time to load the videos? Is your Internet connection slow? You can answer these questions simply by joining a YouTube feature called "feather beta" Load your videos as you like to. This function acts by trimming some bytes which slow down video streaming in your browser throwing away expandable things.
Just go to https://www.youtube.com/feather_beta & join it.

10. Accelerate Video - Eliminate buffering of YouTube videos

If your YouTube videos are buffering slowly or taking the time to buffer the videos, then obviously you will be in a search to get rid of this and buffer the videos as much as fast. You can make this happen by changing default settings on your YouTube profile account. Go at the top-right corner of YouTube account & click on Gear (setting icon). Choose playback & then select "I have a slow Internet connection". This feature will never play the higher-quality video again.

11. Improve Quality of YouTube Video Playback

As we have learned how to speed up video buffering, the same way we can change the setting to set the best video quality. You have to do nothing extra, just go to your YouTube account setting on the top - right corner of window & tap on Gear (setting icon).

The YouTube kids app contains videos suitable for children. As they don't know how to type, the app has provided with voice search & big, colorful buttons which make your kids find videos quickly.
