    Default Youtube 4k premium.

    https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/yo...esolution.html

    Didn't mind the ads, but I do watch a lot of high bandwidth content. The push for subscription to premium heats up.
    Electricity 29.6 cents

    If you're not already subscribed from Argentina you're doing it wrong.

    I wish youtube would add a higher bitrate to their lower feeds like 1080p vs who gives a shit 4k.

    Same with 1080p 60fps, I really don't care for it unless its sports/fast moving, and a higher bitrate 1080p option would likely be superior anyways (going 60fps delivery is kind of the same thing).

    Always wondered how they handled 4k content, its exponentially more expensive to host so it makes sense they are going this route.

    Never thought to purchase through my vpn though!

    I care about 4K. I film my kids sports games in 4K 60 HDR and it looks incredible. Great memories. Youtube handles HDR incredibly bad, to the point where I stopped filming in HDR. And ya, the bitrates are brutal, 4K 60fps visual quality is so poor compared to the original.

    I typically upload to YouTube for quick watch/access, then host the original on a google drive for parents to download the original. Sucks that 4K becomes inaccessible without premium.

    Sucks that I had to move to Argentina to get premium at a reasonable price.
    But the weather's good.

    People balk at the idea of 12 ads before video. This is the natural next step.

    As for different region payment hack, I'm sure they will come for that when they are desperate enough.

    Looks like Google and Amazon need to see positive cash flow from video streaming platforms soon.

    Wow didn't realize there were other people from India here. Namaste mafakas! Been living in India for a while now and it's been great. I can't even imagine an ad pop up on my YouTube since I watch so much random shit, it would drive me nuts. Got the whole family hooked up, and use YouTube music all the time too, so if I ever have to move back to Canada, I would still pay for it.

    I care about 4k as well, just not youtube 4k. It's a bad platform for it. I also try and record all videos I take in 4k, makes editing easier and looks so good.

    I feel like a boomer right now.
    I don't get it

    Or I mean, I don't know the solution.

    1. Create new account using through India or Argentina VPN so you can use your CC, some people are able to use existing account just by logging in with VPN
    2. Sign up for YT premium family through VPN
    3. Add family members

    Legit question, what are people watching that requires a premium subscription...?

    Rage's example of sharing kids sports is a good example I hadn't thought of before, but outside of the odd DIY video or music video binge, I don't get it.

    No ads on premium. Worth it for iOS but if you have android then there are other apps you can use to block ads.

    It also gives you access to YouTube music which is like Spotify.

    YouTube music is notably worse than Spotify, even the paid version.

    YouTube’s ads have gotten so bad it’s virtually unwatchable.

    I don’t know what is going on with the rest of the discussion lol

    I got it just for no ads, browser ad blockers are great but watching YouTube via android tv and getting blasted with ads before and during vids is cancer.

    Also painful to watch ads for a short YouTube vid.

    I hate ads.
