I hope it flops and fails as badly as OnLive. Purely personal and selfish reasons really, mainly because I do not like Google from a business stand point and data sharing stand point. I also look at it like these are the same people that are trying to sell us this streaming concept with Stadia when they cant even make Youtube properly send notifications to our subscribers boxes properly.
I get that it's popular to poopoo on Youtube right now, I like to do it too sometimes, but you're grossly underselling how massive an achievement it is that a platform with as much content constantly being uploaded as Youtube, with as many users and creators, with as many things that could go wrong, has such a good handle on keeping the house from burning down that the biggest problem someone can complain about is some people not getting notifications sometimes. You make it sound like Youtube is run by inept imbeciles, and not literal mega-geniuses who have no right no have such a massive platform run as smoothly as it consistently does. 300 hours of footage is uploaded every minute dude. 300 hours a minute. Give them room to breath.
Are you actually being overwhelmingly ignorant with a dash of over positivity or something?. There are plenty of reasons out there as to why Youtube isn't the best place in the world, why what it does can and has been wrong, why it guts animation artists out there, forcing them to rely on patron, or how it forces youtube content creators, to either spam content daily, or deliberately lengthen their videos, to match a specific time, in order to get any money at all. This isn't taking into account, the horrible youtube police (Heroes) that failed and was flawed from the start, or the youtube bots, or content creators and companies relying solely on hit and run CAD strikes, where even they don't have to put up a fight, the ones who have to fight are the ones who had the CAD issued to them.
Youtube is far from perfect and far from "genius". And it is run by people who are both out of touch and for the companies, rather than the creators. Have you also failed to notice that these youtube rewinds of recent years involve Youtubers who are just family friendly?, while ignoring the likes of Markiplier, Jacksepticeye and more. Google want this warped image of what they think Youtube is, without actually admitting what Youtube really is. That's not genius, that's just stupid and warped. Don't tell me what I think, I've been and seen youtube enough over the years to know what it is, better than the company that's out of touch with it (did I forget to mention how out of touch they were with forcing G+ on Youtube users?).
