Too old to run,
too mean to quit!
posted
I have tried a couple times over the last few days to view some youtube stuff. It demands that I either sign in, or register.

When did this start?

And what's next? Monthly fees, etc, or have they already started that?

I haven't noticed that, myself. Do you have an account? If not, sign up. It's painless and not invasive.

Maybe my 80 year old memory is failing more, but I have no recollection of ever having to sign up.

Will give it a shot a little later today. Have to go get my truck worked on.

The only time Youtube asks me to log in to watch a video is when they need to verify my age so they know I'm old enough to watch the video I clicked on. So what video are you trying to watch? o_O

Hell, it could be just about anything. I've had some stuff that's age-gated and when I watch it, I had to wonder why because it was something that aired on cable news.

My guess is that Paten is correct.

I never log in. If Youtube asks, I just go to liveleak.com to watch it.

YouTube is trying a number of subscription revenue-generating schemes. YouTube Music and youTube Premium are two biggies. Meanwhile, they've demonetized the lion's share of creators.

The only requirement for signing in is if you want to watch age restricted videos.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

I spent about an hour on it last night without any issues. No one asked me to sign in. I tell people not to go on the site unless they have some time to kill. One thing quickly leads to another.

Don't know what happened, but I tried again last evening and got into the site without trouble.
