Trying Youtube Premieres Was a Massive Mistake...

Watch the RFID video: https://youtu.be/PWzyPZAPbt0 I tried out YouTube Premieres, and it went really poorly (but I had a lot of fun in the process). I wanted to share with you guys a bit more of the behind the scenes on what happened, what I did to try and fix it, and where we go from here.

I immensely dislike premier notifications in my cue. What is the point?? I hide them every time. Drives me nuts. Thank you for listening. I needed a vent.

What is supposed to be the benefit of YT Premiere?! As far a what ive been reading, it almost the same as a YT livestream? Very confusing?

Depends who your audience is. I know quite a lot of retired ladies who craft and they're probably around most of the time. For that reason I wouldn't schedule, I'd have my video go live as soon as published so I'm right here for my viewers to chat.

Thanks I've just started out on YouTube. I need all the views, likes and subs I can get lol... So I WON'T be doing this now! Sorry you had to go through it though! x
YouTube premieres are annoying for subscribers. You get notified about a video you can't watch. You get it in your feed too. Creators need to consider this and not be self centered.

I did it and it seem to be silly when folks aren't into waiting to watch a video.
I just did a Premier and no notifications went out on mine.. that's how / why I found this video.

I think premieres are great if its a long video and you schedule it for like 5 minutes in advance and you're actually there to interact on the chat. Give it a try. If its a long-ish video, schedule it for 5 minutes in advance and then stay on the chat to interact with your audience.

Create a YT Premier that's scheduled for the time you upload it, then you can deliver content immediately and live chat. Bit of a hack to get around the awefulness of Premier though.
Good Real truth video

Even a small creator like myself has had this experience with premieres. I agree that there is probably unintended consequences but definitely my results with it has led me not to try it again - at least for now. Reuploads confuse subscribers. So it doesn’t surprise me that it didn’t work. Thanks for sharing your experience. I think I’ll save premieres for videos that are going to suck anyway

youtube premiere sucks because it's imitating the system that we all try to escape, the normal tv content. youtube is so successful because i can watch the video when i want. i personally always just swipe premiere notifications aways because its just useless, i want to see the video, not a notification that the video will be online in some hours. Its also kinda annoying, as normal youtube notifications are silent, and premiers make a sound or vibration like a livestream notification. i understand that the livestream notification needs to be more important then normal ones, as its more fun watching them live, but premiere is just a disappointment. and i think many other users think like me, we don't want premiers, we just want to watch the video

Thank you for this video. ...because youtube premieres are killing my videos too
the premiere feature use a different kind of algorithm. I tried that, it has the poor low views as well, but after 20 days ,, It goes well again... dunno y

I don't sub to very many channels, but I watch almost exclusively from my sub feed. Premiers get dropped into that feed, but I can't watch them. By the time they are watchable they have fallen "Below the fold" as the term used to be, namely they are off the first screen of what is visible. And I am not really going to plan ahead to watch a 10 minute youtube video, if I see a premier it is because I am ready to watch a video Right Now.
Steven Brunwasser (2 months ago)
I’d love to see a renovations video! It sounds like YouTube Premiers is another one of those features that are out of touch with the actual community and how viewers use the site. Keep up the good work! I’m sure you’ll bounce back soon 😉
RandomSmith (2 months ago)
Perhaps add a new 10-30 second slot at the start of the video stating why you are uploading it again, the extra video should mean that the content is different enough to get new recommendations?

You know what Scotty, im going to go over to that video right now and watch it and give it a thumbs up.

Bryn Ghost (2 months ago)
Really, really not a fan of YouTube Premieres. It's an annoying bait-and-switch that seemingly only exists to trick people into clicking the link and having to turn on reminders or come back later or what have you. Click the link expecting a video (that's clearly finished and ready to be watched) and instead leads you to a picture and an arbitrary wait period. I usually either leave and end up forgetting about the video until a few days later, or never remembering to watch it. It hurts creators, and it's annoying at best for subscribers. I hope the whole idea gets scrapped and YouTube can focus on being the on-demand platform that we all came here for.

Fernando Garcia (2 months ago)
I think that there is also an issue with youtube not sharing what exactly is the YT premiere so the community get confused. I was thinking this was like a premium feature of YT - kinda like pay per view or something, so I never ever clicked on ANY premiere video - lol. Maybe more ppl also got confused.

Youtube Premiere is little more than a lazy mans stream. You can do it on any streaming platform manually.
Andy Knapp (2 months ago)
I have been saying this everywhere. Start a normal livestream and at the end of it premiere your video. Then when the stream is over upload the video by itself and delete the livestream archive
Adam Kamali (2 months ago)
I think you should add at least one ad in the middle of the video, I would be glad to watch them to support you The crazy part about YouTube videos is that they have to be quite unique, being in china your are one step a head of everyone in the U.S I guess, in getting people to see strange stuff, and reviewing them

David Evans (2 months ago)
You could do a live chat on Discord. Set it to start when the video goes live, so people can chat while it's being played, although not technically a live stream. You could do a Twitch live steam/chat.

If you are helping YouTube work out bugs in their delivery product, then you should be compensated. They should offer to promote the affected video free of charge, for example, for some period of time. You are lucky enough to be large enough to have the ability to get changes done. And you're eloquent to the point where you are very much able to pinpoint the issues with YouTube. So how fair is it for you to never give them a shot again? If they're listening to you, and making changes to the system based on what you and others suggest... Do it with a video where you're not as invested in time and money. And see how it works out.

Not so many people understand what about exactly you talk in this video and even not all who made video for youtube, but you understand all from first time about this shitty feature)) I try to debate here in Russia with one guy in my subscribe list who try to make premiere, we Russians is very stubborn and he don't want hear anyone words from subscribers he think we try to manipulate him, lol. Now we on stage when we dislike all his video which he premie feature use. Believe in the end he must understand how crappy this was)

I watched it later and enjoyed it. The content was great and well worth the watch I stumbled across it and was not informed of it
The Premiere countdown is so annoying like you see the Premiere is starting and then you see the loading screen only to see the countdown and the live chat goes like oh come on really

When I see a Premiere Video popping up in my subscriptions feed, i always encounter the same problem. I cannot watch it right now. When it actually premieres will not be a time I watch videos. But it seems to keep its position in the feed after it premieres among all the for me now "old" videos. So the chance for me to go back there and look among the older videos really only happens when there are no new ones that are interresting for me.
DukeThaKid Gaming (2 months ago)
I'm trying to schedule my premiere but the schedule button is blocked and for some reason when it got unblocked, I tried to change the time but it won't change because it says premiere is about to start and my video isn't even done uploading or processing.

Rules of how to use premiers: Only use it for large, special videos. Don't use it for every single video. Notify and tease your audience about the upcoming video before hand, ideally in a mini teaser video. Only set premier to go live within one hour (I'm seeing that 10 to 20 minutes is best); this gives people time to get ready for the video and not miss out one it. You don't need to sit in the chat, that sounds like the immediate good thing about premiers, but it shouldn't be the main selling point. Premiers gets the community talking to each other and gives everyone a chance to watch the video at the same time, no spoilers, no people jumping ahead, etc. I see too many creators looking at it as a way to chat to their fans but I honestly don't think this is the main point. You're only chatting to 0.01% of your fans in premier. What YouTube needs to do: Disable comments and thumbs down during the pre-premier time. I have a suspicion the thumbs-down voting kills video momentum once the premier is over. They also need to remove the premier notification when the video is live and convert it to something similar to "Live Now" - something like "Premiering Now". They then need to send out the standard video notification and subscription feed stuff after the premier is over for anyone who missed it. Premiers objectively only remove the ability to skip ahead or play a video back 2x speed, which does annoy a small part of the audience, but psychologically Premiers seem really sucky; get a notification for a video, click it, it says "Come back in 200 years" because the creator thought it a great idea to whack it up to premier in the distant future without any prior warning. This is annoying, makes people down-vote, then 200 years later you've already forgotten about the video and YouTube won't show it to you again because it started off with massive downvotes so it's in recommendation hell.

after reading the comments section, aside from the issue with premiere, it seems people aren't just that interested in the topics (RFID tags) becuase they're unfamiliar with it. so, personal opinion, maybe made an introductory video (could work as trailer if you will) if your next video topic might be a little bit 'advanced'. i know it's an extra works, but just my two cent

Sean Ozz (3 months ago)
this is interesting. I tried it when i first got it on one video a couple months ago and within a week the views were dead. i was considering doing another one this week but it's a video that should do really well so after watching this i am rethinking it. knowing that i was not crazy thinking there was something wrong with a video after premier ended. that i am not alone. have you tried re-uploading that same video to see if it performed better with a regular release?

Augustus Terra Australis (3 months ago)
Why don't you try it again, but set the video to premiere in like 5 minutes, not hours. People will hang around for a few mins for a video to go live, but not a few hours.

Youtube Premiere is basically the feature that prevents you from watching the full video when you are a minute late until the end of the video.

Youtube Premieres are addressed as livestreams. So when you announce it, it is treated as a vid and notifications go out. Once the premiere starts, only people that watch livestreams frequently recieve notifications. Sounds kinda stupid, but thats my guess. Lets just hope article 13 works out so this can continue being the issue.
harry89 (3 months ago)
Watched several of your older videos (your first 2-3) on my mobile, so there were ads. this one on my pc was blocked ads sry, but i made it up while listening through this video in another tab, i deactivated the blocker and watched your RFID Video without sound and skipped to the ads :-) to increase some more revenue out of the video. keep it up
