Saving YouTube Videos to Watch Later

You’ve heard me mention several times about saving videos to watch later.

This is another one of my favorite features. When you come across a video you want to watch but you can’t watch it right then you can save it for later

Written Tutorial

You can save a video to watch later from just about anywhere you see videos.

If you are on your Home Page, you will hover over a video thumbnail and a clock icon should show up on the bottom right of the image. Clicking on the Clock will add that video to your “Watch Later” list.

If you have searched for videos using the Search Bar, you will see thumbnails of videos in your search results. Hovering over a thumbnail will display the clock again and can add that video to your “Watch Later” list by clicking on the Clock.

If you are actively watching a video, you will click on “Add To” and select ‘Watch Later’ from the dropdown list.

To find all of the videos that you have marked to watch later, click on the Menu on the top left and you see Watch Later in the Menu list.

You can remove a video from the “Watch Later” list by clicked on “Remove Watched”.

You can also add notes to the videos in your “Watch Later” list.

Subscribing to YouTube Channels

Subscribing to YouTube Channels

Normally when you hear the word subscribe you might think that means you’re going to have to pay for something that you subscribe to but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

On YouTube when you subscribe to someone’s channel you are basically saying that I really like the content they are uploading and I want to be notified whenever they upload new videos.

In this video, I’ll show you how to subscribe to a channel and make sure you get notified when you’re favorite video creator uploads new videos.

Let’s start by finding Channels that interest you by using the Search Bar to find specific videos.

While you are browsing videos in your search results, you will see video titles. Directly underneath each video’s title, you will see the name of the Channel that has uploaded the video.

Hovering over a Channel name will display a pop-up of that Channel’s detailed information, along with an option to Subscribe.

However, if you would like to watch a video before subscribing, go ahead and click on the Video title to watch it.

From that page, you have several ways to Subscribe.

1. Click on Subscribe within the video

2. Click on Subscribe directly under the videos

3. Go to the Channel and Subscribe from there.

If you would like to receive Notifications every time this Channel uploads a new video, go to the channel and click on the Cogwheel next to Subscribed.
(You have to be Subscribed to a Channel to get notifications from them)

Check the box next to ‘Send me all notifications for this channel’ and click Save.

Unsubscribe from a YouTube Channel

If you would like to Unsubscribe to a Channel, you can follow the same 3 steps as above, only your option will now be to ‘Unsubscribe’.

You can find all of the Channels that you have subscribed to by going to the Menu on the top left.

Your Subscriptions will be displayed on the Menu bar and you can easily navigate to any Channel you would like to by clicking on them from the Menu Bar.

How to Make a New YouTube Channel

In order to make a YouTube Channel you first have to be signed in to your YouTube Account. Remember, by creating a YouTube Channel you’re unlocking the ability to create playlists, comment on videos and upload your very own videos, only if you want to of course.

From your homepage, click on ‘Upload’ at the top right, next to your profile picture.

A box will pop up, prompting you to create a channel. It will use the name you signed up with by default and that will be the name of your YouTube Channel.

If you are okay with that, click ‘Create Channel’. If you would like to change the channel name, click on ‘Use business or another name’. Type in the desired name of your channel and select the category of the channel you are creating.

Check the box to agree to Terms after reading them, of course, and click ‘Done’.

You have created your Channel! You may now upload videos to your Channel if you would like, but this is not necessary.

You may notice that your Profile Picture on the top right is now gone. This is because your Channel is separate from your account, which has your profile picture. If you would like to add an image, follow these steps:

Click on the “Menu” icon at the top left

Click on My Channel

Hover over the Image within the channel and click on the Pencil that pops up

Click ‘Edit’

You will most likely need to Upload an Image at this point, though you may choose to take a photo with a web camera if you have one connected.

If you are uploading a photo, you have the ability to edit it before setting it as the Profile Picture.

Click ‘Cancel’ to avoid posting to Google+ about changing your profile picture.

If you would like to personalize your Channel, even more, you can add ‘Channel Art’.

Click “Add Channel Art”.

If you don’t have an image in mind, you can use YouTube’s Gallery and browse their selection.

Once you have a picture, just click ‘Add’ and now everyone that views your Channel will see the art.

Congratulations! You now have an Official YouTube Channel!
