Repeat Video Infinity Times
Loved a video? Want to keep watching or listening to it? No problem; here’s a simple trick. You can put a video on loop infinity times. Usually, the next video automatically starts when one has completed. There’s no guarantee that the next video will bring the same feelings as you expected and may ruin your enjoyment.
Here’s what you can do put the video on an infinite loop. Simply add “repeater” after “youtube” in the link. It will open the video in a new page and keep playing until you manually stop it.
Break All Age Restrictions
There are countless videos on YouTube that require its viewer to be of a mature age. It asks you to login to prove your age. Sometimes, you can’t provide that kind of verification because you are either not of age or can’t use the login on the device. A simple solution is to add “gen” before the “youtube” in the link. It will bypass the age restriction and open that video for you.
Download Video in Any Format
YouTube is best and all but there is this one major flaw. It doesn’t allow us to download its videos. You don’t always have access to the internet and may need to keep a video offline. Moreover, YouTube stores and plays only video formats. Even an audio file is played in video format.
Here’s one solution to both problems. You can download the video and also in your preferred format. To download a video, copy its link and go to YouTube Konverter. Paste the link in the text box, select the format and click “CONVERT TO”. This tool will download the video in selected format. You can also use its browser plugin for ease of use.
Copy Video URL at Any Time
Most videos on YouTube have an annoying intro or some promotion which takes all the excitement out of it. You can simply skip that part but it is still a problem when you want to share it with your friends. Of course, you wouldn’t want them to go through the boring part before having to see why you shared the video with them.
Here’s a simple trick. You can copy the link of the video from a specific time and share it with you whoever you want. That link will start the video from the time you chose and skip the other useless part. Simply right click on the video and click “Copy video URL at current time”.
Play Video in Slow Motion
YouTube has a feature that allows you to change the speed of the playing video. You can change a video’s playback speed and make it fast or slow up to two times. But, this applies to the entire video. It will be a problem if you just want to slow some part of the video. An easy trick is to hold the “space” button and video will keep playing in slow motion.
