There’s no disputing that YouTube remains the king of online video, but the Google-owned property is starting to see some heavy competition from an unusual place: Facebook.

Whereas most videos shared on Facebook used to come in the form of embedded YouTube videos, most videos on the site today are now uploaded to the social network via Facebook’s video uploader.  More to the point, 70% of all new videos posted to Facebook are being uploaded directly. Back in February of 2014, this figure was just 25%.

Funny Cat Video: Alaskan Bear Loses Its Mind Over Protective Feline

A study recently revealed that watching videos of funny cats during the day can definitely cheer you up, and improve productivity, even if that means doing some procrastinating on YouTube before actually getting work done. But while cats can cheer up humans, bears aren’t similarly entertained, as we can clearly see in a new funny cat video. More →

Cats are famously afraid of water, so it’s always funny to see them reach when having to deal with water and washing incidents. But what about flying? A new video uploaded to YouTube over the weekend shows what it’s like for a cat to find itself up in the air against its will – and from the looks of it, the cat doesn’t seem too happy about it.

Video: Iconic ‘Psycho’ murder scene becomes adorably creepy with help from kittens

Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho has an iconic murder scene that doesn’t need any introduction, and you’ve probably seen it at least once even without actually watching the movie. As terrifying as the original shot might be, a black and white version starring two cute kittens is significantly cuter, but still a bit freaky. More →

Google announces its Twitch rival, YouTube Gaming

Gaming is a massive part of the YouTube scene. It has been for years, but when it comes to live streaming games on the service, Google’s offerings paled in comparison to Twitch.

It’s never a good idea to pour fire ants on your genitals, no matter how big a YouTube sensation you want to become. This warning is sadly too late for a man in Thailand who did just that and recorded his painful experience, complete with intense screaming, on video. More →

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Songify the News #8

One of my personal favorite YouTube channels over the past several years has been Schmoyoho, creators of the acclaimed Auto-Tune the News series and the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt theme song. Although that series ended in 2010, The Gregory Brothers rebooted the auto-tuned insanity in 2012 with the first episode of Songify the News.

How to start using YouTube’s new interface right now, before it launches

Then, people discovered a reasonably simple hack of sorts that let them force the new player UI to appear by using an editor to manually make some changes to the cookie YouTube plants in your browser cache. Of course, most people had no interest in editing their cookies in order to see the new UI.

Well guess what: YouTube has finally made it easy for anyone and everyone to check out the new video player interface before it’s released to the general public. More →
