Right now on my recommendation page there are videos ranging from 40 minutes to 3+hours, a good majority of them are an hour long.

I feel like videos have been getting longer since 2020 but I'm not sure if it's just me.

I don't know. I wouldn't normally watch a Youtube video that long.

If I watch a video that long, it's usually on my television which doesn't have Youtube.

And dumber.

YouTube how-to videos are the worst, made by lazy people who can't put together an intelligent text-based presentation.

I've noticed that some YouTube videos are getting longer. There are some videos that are also a waste of time because all the creator does throughout the video is small talk and they never get to the topic.

alot of it is to make time for live reads which is very annoying, even 10 minute video ends being just 5 minutes because the content creator has shout our their sponsor
