While most people are familiar with YouTube, most people only use it to search for music videos, news bits, trailers, and animal videos. What a lot of people don’t realize is that there’s a wealth of videos available covering a wide range of topics.
In addition to the better-known channels for DIY stuff, official company pages, and “let’s play” videos, one can find a wealth of other channels. There are channels dedicated to taking creepy stories and animating them, audio books, open-source old movies, and much more! All it takes to find them is a bit of patience and a good understanding of search words!
While there have been some controversies and scandals around the content on Twitch, it’s still a great place to visit. Originally dedicated to videogame livestreams, Twitch has slowly included channels for non-gaming content, the most famous of which was dedicated to the late Bob Ross, streaming the episodes of his show.
Twitch also had some community driven events like the now famous “Twitch Plays” in which multiple people tried to control a single game of Pokemon Red, all inputting commands at the same time. Like YouTube, there’s a lot of channels that aren’t that good, but Twitch is nice enough to let you know which channels are popular so you know where to start!
