T-Mobile subscribers can now stream unlimited YouTube videos for free

T-Mobile’s controversial Binge On initiative filled in its biggest remaining gap for online video services on Thursday by announcing it had secured the support of YouTube for the program. This means that T-Mobile subscribers with plans that are eligible for Binge On will be able to watch as many YouTube videos as they want over T-Mobile’s mobile data network without having any of it count against their monthly data limits.

YouTube added a feature that makes it easy to blur out objects, even while they’re moving

Without a lot of fanfare, YouTube about two weeks ago added a new and advanced blurring tool that lets video uploaders easily and precisely blur out anything that might not be appropriate for public viewing, from the faces of bystanders to license plates on cars.

YouTube Search By Location

Wild new site lets you search YouTube videos by filming location

Wild new site lets you search YouTube videos by filming location

The Next Web points us to a fascinating new site on github that lets users search for YouTube videos based on the area in which they were shot. While geolocation data for videos isn’t as prevalent as it is for, say, photos, it’s still an interesting tool that’s worth exploring as a means to discover crazy, weird, and low-production footage that may have been shot right in your backyard.

In addition to being able to enter in a particular city or even a specific address into the search bar, the site also lets users filter videos depending on how recently they were filmed. So, for instance, if you want to see what videos that were filmed near Anchorage, Alaska over the past week, you can do so with ease. Advanced search filters also allow users to search by keywords and within a certain designated radius.

EFF T-Mobile Throttling Video YouTube

EFF proves T-Mobile is throttling YouTube

EFF proves T-Mobile is throttling YouTube

T-Mobile’s Binge On product might be a great way to conserve mobile data while still watching plenty of videos over a cellular connection, but many criticize the program and suggest that it breaks net neutrality rules. Binge On covers only certain content providers that inked deals with T-Mobile, at least in theory. However, the carrier has recently accused of throttling video content from other sources as well, including Google’s YouTube.

T-Mobile has since said that it’s not throttling YouTube, and instead is just “optimizing” it. But the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is not buying that claim.

T-Mobile Binge On YouTube Throttling

T-Mobile denies throttling YouTube videos, says it’s ‘optimized’ them

T-Mobile denies throttling YouTube videos, says it’s ‘optimized’ them

T-Mobile’s Binge On program is yet another move from the “Un-carrier” that’s supposed to help it steal more customers from the competition. With Binge On turned on – a default setting on all T-Mobile devices – video traffic from certain mobile apps isn’t counted towards a users’ monthly cap. That’s great, in theory, though it might not sit well with net neutrality supporters. More →

YouTube says T-Mobile’s net neutrality-bending Binge On scheme throttles its videos

Even though T-Mobile’s Binge On program is the least objectionable of all carrier plans I’ve seen to exempt certain content from its own data caps, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have problems. In fact, I’m on the record as saying Binge On could very well blow up in T-Mobile’s face and now we’re seeing the first evidence that Binge On may be more of a hassle than the “Un-carrier” bargained for.

After spending 10 minutes with YouTube Music, I’m ready to bury Apple Music

After hyping up the app for several months, Google finally released YouTube Music for iOS and Android devices on Thursday, November 12th. It’s exactly what it sounds like, but in case you need an explanation, YouTube Music is basically a Spotify or Apple Music substitute that uses YouTube’s massive catalog of songs and music videos.
