But by saying "If I wanted to watch YouTube videos, I would go to YouTube", isn't that the exact same as saying "If I wanted to see 4chan stories, I would go to 4chan"?

please don't hurt me
User avatar #58 to #30 - cruzslzr (08/22/2013) [-]
I agree with this white name guy
#41 to #30 - anon (08/22/2013) [-]
Basically only OC from FJ is acceptable here.

Everything else must be viewed from it's origin. Since FJ lacks OC and reposts/steals a lot..
User avatar #59 to #41 - cruzslzr (08/22/2013) [-]
really? so all the reposts that get frontpage are hacks correct?
#81 to #30 - CurlyTop (08/22/2013) [-]
With Youtube, everything is there all the time unless personally taken down, no?
With 4chan, after 15 minutes it's gone. That's how I like to think of it anyways.

Its not the fact that they are Youtube videos, its the fact that they are all 10 minutes of Russians having car accidents. It wasn't that funny to begin with and now its annoying as **** .

I watch the video, and if it's funny I thumb it up. If it isn't I thumb it down.

That's really about it. I don't understand why everyone has to a twat about it.

I read way faster than the video plays , thus I really rather it in a text form where I can read through it quite fast and move on to the next content.   
So I skip videos all the time

You're already on this site to kill time or relieve boredom. Why are you trying to save time. I read the comments on every single post because I want to get as much entertainment out of the site as possible, and to avoid getting to all the ****** content that caps at 200 thumbs.
#57 to #49 - stadic (08/22/2013) [-]
I don't try to save time I just don't like most youtube videos.   
I only go on youtube now to listen to music and such, so the cat and boob videos that people always post are of no interest to me. So I ignore them.

Also my computer's a piece of 			****		 and doesn't like it when I do stuff that's really flash intensive, like funnyjunk.   
Red lines start appearing and everything, so I try to only browse a little bit.

I thumb every single youtube video down without watching it. if i wanted to watch youtube i would go to ******* youtube.
User avatar #80 to #2 - whatugawkinat (08/22/2013) [-]
That's like saying "If I wanted to look at funny pictures, I would google "Funny Pictures"..there are some hilarious videos posted here...but I agree most of them are spam or stupid videos.

I thumb down every pony post. If I wanted to be a neckbeard virgin, I would just watch the series.
User avatar #37 to #33 - sanguinesolitude ONLINE (08/22/2013) [-]
i thumb most down. occasionally they are cute enough to get a thumb on their own merit.
User avatar #32 to #2 - Sinless (08/22/2013) [-]
If I wanted to see a tumblr/4chan/reddit/etc post, then I would just go to [insert relative website here].
User avatar #34 to #32 - sanguinesolitude ONLINE (08/22/2013) [-]
except that those are precisely the thing this site was made for. To post the best pictures and gifs from other sites. And i know youtube is another site, but i didnt come here to watch videos... and neither did most people.
User avatar #82 to #34 - snaresinger (08/22/2013) [-]
>logic
User avatar #38 to #34 - Sinless (08/22/2013) [-]
Most people come to this website to look at something funny. The whole idea is to see if a post is funny, if it is then thumb it up and if it isn't then thumb it down.

By your logic, I should thumb down every gif I see because I didn't come to this website to see short videos without sound. I don't like most of the gifs, but I don't thumb them all down whenever I see one, I just skip them and let someone else judge them.
User avatar #40 to #38 - sanguinesolitude ONLINE (08/22/2013) [-]
well i did come to this website to see loops of short videos without sound, in addition to some fun pictures.

A video is more of a commitment than i want to make. You want me to watch 9 minutes of what will likely be crap... yeah you can go **** yourself (OP of youtube video not you.) a gif is like 30 seconds max so if i dont like it its no lost time. In addition, of the youtube vids i have watched on this site, 90% of them suck and the other 10% werent worth going through the others for. Sorry if my thumbs offend you.
User avatar #43 to #40 - Sinless (08/22/2013) [-]
Just like I came to see some short videos. Granted, those 10 minute videos are boring, but I've found some gold among the new content in the form of 3 minute videos, even some one minute videos. I don't like the gifs because usually they take about a minute to load and don't end up being funny. So there's a difference in oppinion.

However, I don't judge every gif based on my opinion and thumb down each one I see. I thumb it based on my reaction, like I think everyone should.

Not offended, just stating my opinion.
User avatar #46 to #43 - sanguinesolitude ONLINE (08/22/2013) [-]
fair enough. I generally find better videos browsing randomly on youtube than i do here. they are all either drunk russians, medical tutorials, car crashes, or some weird legal channel
User avatar #10 to #2 - spoonhero **User deleted account** (08/22/2013) [-]
Then why don't you thumb down slideshows from different tv shows like family guy? If you wanna watch them, go watch them
User avatar #13 to #10 - sanguinesolitude ONLINE (08/22/2013) [-]
who says i dont? but at least they took the effort of making content, not just posting a link to a different site.
#97 to #13 - lastsamurai (08/22/2013) [-]
no they just screen shot'd and copied the text.
that must be so ******* hard..

really why don't you thumb down tumblr or 4chan posts.
your argument is retarded
User avatar #98 to #97 - sanguinesolitude ONLINE (08/22/2013) [-]
i didnt say it was hard, but it took more effort than just copy pasting the youtube url.

My argument is sound, you are just being obstinate
#101 to #98 - lastsamurai (08/22/2013) [-]
by your logic you would want to go to tumblr, 4chan, youtube, reddit and so on for entertainment and don't want to find it here.
you could just say you don't like youtube videos but you had to have an incredibly stupid reason that makes no sense... ignorance.
#99 to #98 - lastsamurai (08/22/2013) [-]
Your argument is flawed.
If you wanted to watch a youtube video you'd go to youtube.
but you complain about YOUTUBE VIDEOS when there are tumblr screenies, reddit screenies, 4chan screenies and ALL OTHER SCREENIES OF CARTOONS THAT COME FROM ONE SITE on the front page.

Why are u only complaining about youtube videos?
#102 to #99 - anon (08/22/2013) [-]
He's saying that copy+pasting a url is such little work that it doesn't deserve thumbs. While reposting or screencap+crop is more work and is good enough for thumbs. I don't agree with him, but that's what I think he's trying to say.
#103 to #102 - lastsamurai (08/22/2013) [-]
but that's wrong.
EVERYTHING FUNNY should be posted here.
Period.
What makes the front-page is funny for random anons mostly. not people who comment so no one gives a **** about what anyone types because there will always be those people that are new and see it for their first time and just thumb it up.
the discussion could be endless but it's just retarded to have such a meaning for themselves cause it makes no ******* sense.
User avatar #104 to #99 - sanguinesolitude ONLINE (08/22/2013) [-]
but thats the point of this site. Its to gather funny stuff in one place. I guess i am just racist against youtube, but i want short bites, not multi minute commitments that are rarely worth the time they waste. There is usually at least something funny in even the terrible memes. the majority of the youtube videos, like well over 9/10 are just awful. They take too long to watch, and they arent worth the time.

Have you ever been over to a party and everyone shows eachother youtube videos, and everyone thinks theirs is funny, and nobody laughs at the others... thats the problem.
#105 to #104 - lastsamurai (08/22/2013) [-]
No.
I don't do that at partys.
Second, most videos get thumbs because people like them. I agree the russian and fail videos are pretty bad. But often videos from You need to login to view this link comes on the frontpage all the time. about the 9/10 thing, all content on FJ is pretty bad. It's not even funny most of the times. But you watch it to get entertained and so you continue and that's what all matters. I just skip youtube videos because it's that ******* easy.

everyone are entitled to an opinion, but your opinion is stupid.
User avatar #106 to #105 - sanguinesolitude ONLINE (08/22/2013) [-]
you are raging awfully hard over this. And youtube videos almost never reach front page, either way 107 and counting people agree with me, so while my opinion may be stupid, there are plenty of stupid people who share it.

i always do my part by thumbing them down. if i wanted to watch vids, i would go to youtube.
User avatar #3 to #1 - animationhac (08/22/2013) [-]
But why? Funny junk is a site for funny things to be here so we can enjoy? Funny junk is not a pure pic site. I dont hate/love the videos here but saying u thumb them down due to you not wanting to view them on FJ doesn't mean they don't belong here. It is funny JUNK not just Funny Pics and Gifs. I found awesome videos on fj before any how and I am glad they've showed me them.

Theres a lot of pony posts and none of them ever reach front page at all. Yet there are those who do enjoy them.

TL DR, Just ******* skip the page. FJ aint about you.
#5 to #3 - alexanderh ONLINE (08/22/2013) [-]
We don't go to funnyjunk to watch videos, but for the pictures and gifs. That's why we thumb down videos.
User avatar #6 to #5 - animationhac (08/22/2013) [-]
Funny junk is about over all funny things. It isnt subjected to photos or gifs.
#7 to #6 - alexanderh ONLINE (08/22/2013) [-]
I know that. But I don't want to watch videos when I'm on funnyjunk. I go to funnyjunk for the funny pictures and gifs, and there are many others like me, so we thumb down all videos because we do not want to watch them. Pretty simple, really, I don't see how it is so hard to understand.
User avatar #73 to #7 - animationhac (08/22/2013) [-]
Cause youre thumbing down when is not for that intended use. You don't thumb it down because it is a video and not that it is NOT funny. Its hard to understand because youre not using the thumb down feature for what it is used for.
#79 to #73 - alexanderh ONLINE (08/22/2013) [-]
The thumb feature is supposed to be used to filter out the stuff we don't want to see from the stuff we do. Mostly, we thumb up funny content, but sometimes other content gets thumbed up. I don't want to watch videos on funnyjunk, so I thumb them down.
Also, who are you to say what thumbing content is supposed to be used for? And the intended purpose is almost never the actual usage of features, especially on the internet.

People don't want to watch videos on funnyjunk. So, they discourage the posting of videos by thumbing it down. This ensures that no videos reach the front page, making sure that the people only watching the front page won't see videos.

Another reason is that it is considered lazy to post videos. All you have to do is provide the link, you don't have to do anything actively at all. If you want to share the content in the video, or the video itself, it's better to put in some effort and make pictures of it with the transcript of the funniest part of it laid over, or a GIF, depending on what is more suitable. This usually gets thumbs if the video is funny, and the derived content well put together. Especially if you provide a source, like the youtube video.
User avatar #87 to #79 - animationhac (08/22/2013) [-]
I believe the thumbs are there for thumbing up funny content (meaning any content not limited to pictures) and thumbing down unfunny content. If you don't view the content than how do you know if its funny or not? You thumb it down cause you dont want a video on front page for the sake of it being a video. That isn't very right.

How does posting videos consider lazy? The person just uploads it just like a pho Ive uploaded a video and a photo before. I do the same thing. Upload or copy url, make description, make title, and submit. WOW SO HARD. Honestly, uploading a repost or even oc isn't a hard process to go through no matter of it being a picture.

PST! I've seen videos on front page before and not many bitched about it. I believe in funny things being on the front page regardless of what format it is in. Id rather that than a crappy picture that achieves front page status than a hilarious video that has top 100 in the year potential .

Funny deserves to be thumbed up and not to be thumbed down for the sake of it being a video. No one should discourage a video because of it being one. Thats so stupid (i dont like videos so i thumb them down regardless of what content they have - flawless logic).
Or... You know... You can just skip it like I do when I don't wish to view some content?
#108 to #87 - alexanderh ONLINE (08/23/2013) [-]
We both have very differing opinions on this subject, and I seriously doubt we'll ever reach an agreement. I don't like watching videos on funnyjunk. There are a couple of reasons for that, but I won't list them here.

The reason I consider videos a lazy format is because, more often than not, it's just a youtube video that the uploader found. If you turn it into a GIF/picture, you've put in some effort, and made your own content out of the video. Reposting a picture takes about the same effort as posting a youtube vid, which is why I thumb down reposts too, when I recognise it from the recent past. This is not my main reason for thumbing down videos, but it is one of them.

To round this off: I don't like watching videos on funnyjunk. Therefore, I thumb them down when I see them. No matter what you say, I will keep doing this. You think this is ridiculous, and will try to make me, and others, stop. And no matter what I say, you will not stop doing this.
Now, please leave me alone, and go somewhere else to find videos. It'll probably be easier, since so many people thumb down videos on principle.

I don't care what the content is OP as long as it's funny or interesting.. You notice how there are no posts of users complaining about reposts or videos on frontpage? So thanks for being a post that is neither funny or interesting. Way to contradict yourself.

Is anyone else having issues with their Youtube? I get on and watch a single video and my internet entirely freezes. Nothing loads up, but the computer works just fine. Anything that takes the internet to use suddenly doesn't work.   
   
Any help?

Majority of the users prefer either pictures or gifs. I myself like to have a quick browse and leave at that.

It's just that most users are too lazy to create their own content, and most simply take content from youtube. I'm guilty of this as well.

The sound is why I don't like them. There's a reason I listen to music.
