Why YouTube Used to Prefer Quality

From 1veritasium, 2veritasium, or sciencium.

Almost four years ago I made a video about quality vs quantity on YouTube. Reflecting on how the platform is working in 2017 I find that quantity (frequency) has become significantly more important and quality less so.

I’m not saying this is my recommendation for how people should make channels, just that this is what seems to be an effective strategy nowadays.

This video involves two distinct sections: on the streets of London and in "studio". The London stuff was filmed to correct mistakes in the earlier studio shoot.

The studio shoot was filmed by Raquel Nuno. London street stuff was shot by me on a Zhiyun Crane with GH5.
