Overall, I love Youtube. It helped connect me to new ideas and information. Finding tonally and stylistically different works from a variety of creators. Though in recent times, the overall quality of the content has become quite dubious. I'm not saying its all bad content. I know shorts are garbage and repetitive. Some videos are downright diabolical💀. There is alot of lag issues, especially on android. I could go on, just hoping that this site gets better. 🙏

seems like each update it gets worse, as they add more bloat. New to you tab feeds you the same stuff you've been watching, just from different people. No option to get rid of shorts, player crashes often, picture doesn't resize or rotate properly more often than not, will play seconds of a video, then buffer for an extended amount of time. When it starts playing, the rest of the page will load in several seconds later. No way to edit or remove the tabs. It is a complete mess. Premium is a waste
