Posted 8/15/14 , edited 8/15/14
Regardless of what type of channel it is but is about something you like or love. And let say they upload videos utmost or every day. Will you give that YouTuber a chance ? Also let say you don 't have the time most of the week but you find time. Will you try to watch most of his recently upload videos ? Also if is about something you like or love. what is the longest video time you are willing to spend in one video went you have the time ? Also here a Youtuber as example that does manga and anime review only utmost everyday and his gaining like 2000 or more sub per month. https://www.youtube.com/user/ChibiReviews Also if a Youtuber have accent for your language but you can still understand that person will you still watch it or it will it put you off ?And let say you speak two languages and let say the Youtuber can speak both of those languages. Will that increase or decrease the likelihood of you watching more of his videos ?

All YouTube contributors are equal at the outset as far as I'm concerned. It is after I have seen what they have to offer that I make my final judgment.


Also let say you don 't have the time most of the week but you find time. Will you try to watch most of his recently upload videos?


It depends a great deal on the quality of the videos in question. Has the subject matter to be discussed been thoroughly researched? Is the editing smooth, logical, and easy to follow? Is the sound quality adequate? Has the cinematography been given its due diligence? It's YouTube, so I'm not expecting equivalent quality to mutli-million dollar productions, but if I'm listening to someone who's halfway drowned out by the feedback in their headset's microphone and looking at unnecessary video effects or an especially awkward and shoddy selection of shots then I'm likely to drop the video. Likewise, if the material has clearly not been adequately researched I'm not going to be especially interested.


Also if is about something you like or love. what is the longest video time you are willing to spend in one video went you have the time ?


The longest videos I've ever watched were recordings of lectures running about an hour to an hour and a half long. Those are, however, videos I watched for educational purposes. For the sake of entertainment I would normally cap things at 30 minutes or so unless the work was especially entertaining.


Also if a Youtuber have accent for your language but you can still understand that person will you still watch it or it will it put you off ?


No? Why would I care about their accent if I can clearly understand what's being said?


And let say you speak two languages and let say the Youtuber can speak both of those languages. Will that increase or decrease the likelihood of you watching more of his videos ?


Speaking a common language with the contributor is always a plus, though that in itself does not actually increase the likelihood of my watching a given video.

Thank for the wise response. Also what I mean by two languages is this. Let say he does a movie review or like you say an education discussion. He does a video but with the same video available in two languages for different peaking people. Will that make you appreciate his effort and time for doing that ? Also what type of impact do you think that will do for that Youtuber channel ?

10 minutes is not bad. Skip the intro and outro 4 minute total then 6 minute watch time.

For example anime and manga reviews that are up to date. or a gaming channel that put up gameplay walkthrough every day about the new games ?

People will certainly appreciate that, and it will increase viewership if for no other reason than making the videos accessible. It wouldn't increase the likelihood of my own viewership, that's all I was getting at. Sometimes I listen to languages I don't understand, look at text I don't understand, just to see if I can figure it out.

Regarding the impact of posting duplicates of videos in multiple languages, assuming that the two languages of interest are widely spoken throughout the world the YouTube contributor in question will have added enormously to their prospective audience. Some languages are only broadly spoken within their native countries (like Japanese or Finnish), so posting videos in those languages would increase prospective viewership (but in a relatively small way). Meanwhile, some languages have spread so far that most places have a significant proportion of their population in possession of at least a rudimentary understanding thereof (such as English or Spanish). Videos in Spanish are accessible to more or less the entire western hemisphere, and videos in English are accessible pretty much everywhere. French is pretty well-spread, so videos in French would be accessible in a large part of the world, and Chinese could reach a lot of people simply due to the country's sheer population and the importance of the language for trade.

I'd normally watch the first video for 10 minutes or so..
I only speak the one language so additional languages are not going to increase my viewership
If I liked the first video I might watch up to half an hour at a time
