Just wondering how eclectic the Geekzone members are when it comes to their regular Youtube channel watching?

I have Tested.com and Jimmy DiRseta as my must watch channels


What do you have?

Meh. None unless I'm drunk, then it's random browsing. So much rubbish on youtube, and video is such a slow way to get many forms of information.

Meytal Cohen is the only one i have but the whole fun of youtube is the randomness of where you can end up by clicking on videos




Common sense is not as common as you think.

But only if you like starcraft, otherwise you probably won't like them. Well, you might since they are pretty funny guys.

ConvosWith2YrOld - A man reenacts conversations he's had with his 2 year old daughter with a grown man... surprisingly funny.

DigitalRevTV - Digital Camera stuff

JayLenosGarage - Fancy cars and stuff

I tend to swap and change my subscriptions based on whether I find the latest updates interesting or not.

In no particular order

eevblog (electornics engineering video blog)
mikeselectricstuff (an EE who tears down lots of really interesting things)
jeriellsworth (if you don't know who Jeri is, well see wikipedia, she has 2 channels but hasn't posted much lately, working on a new product to do with 3d vision and augmented reality type stuff)
ben krasnow (engineer who makes really interesting devices)
vihart (I'm sure you've heard of vihart, random maths doodling monologues)
numberphile (really interesting mathematical things, in simple terms)
matthias wandel (makes interesting things from wood)
colinfurz (nutter who makes things like pulsejet powered kettles and his own motorcycle ring of death, on scooter)
fran blanche (interesting electronics and general "maker" stuff)
thesignalpathblog (electronics stuff)
adafruit industries (adafruit.com)
sparkfun (sparkfun,com)

and many more.  I spend way too much time on youtube.

I'm not so sure there is 'must watch' anything on YouTube but I enjoy isosine's mixes and CDZA and Epic Rap Battles of History are good fun too. I'm guessing most people already know about FPSRussia by now but I find his videos hilarious.

gehenna: Tabletop on Geek & Sundry


As a big boardgamer I wholeheartedly agree with this!

I also watch:

Hobblylink.tv (Gundam modelling, hosted by 2 guys who work for a supply company in Japan, and it's surprisingly not uber advertising)
Totalhalibut - Totalbiscuit's PC games channel
SpeedDemosArchive - Speedruns of (mostly) retro games

These are some of my favorites too. You can't go past sixty symbols if you like this kind of stuff. His name is Brady Haran and he also does numberphile, computerphile, periodicvideos and Notingham science.

I like the Husky videos, even if I am not a big Starcraft fan.
