Now that you're already used to the new free PS3 YouTube App
, you will want to add personalized contents to view.
Outside of just doing a 'search' for a term, the best way of adding content is to subscribe to YouTube channels using your Google account. To sign into your PS3 YouTube account, you need to "authorize
" it on your PC. This is similar to "pairing," except that signing in seems permanent. After you enter in a random code, any videos you subscribe or watch will be seen on your PS3 YouTube app.
Here are some of the channels that I've subscribed to - maybe you can send in some suggestions if you don't see a favorite.
Mostly geared towards gamers, these original short-form shows are professionally produced. Best of all, there are no advertisements on the YouTube videos (unlike the videos on their own G4TV website).
The main site hasn't updated videos since August 3rd, but their Attack of the Show is fairly updated with new content.
The anti-Netflix, these are free public domain movies. They're titles that you've never heard of.
I played a film randomly to see if it would load up - the quality is laughable but it might be because the film was from 1950 and they didn't bother to digitally remastered it.
Trailers and sometime free full-length movies from LionsGate.
* As of this writing, none of the full-length movies can be viewed on the PS3 app. I believe these are because of advertisement-issues and you will receive "Playback Error. An error has occurred pleased try again later." With "Back to Guide" as your only option.
These are free full-length movies owned by Sony Pictures.
* As of this writing, cannot watch any movies on Crackle due to the inability to verify my age. YouTube keeps displaying "This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or claims of copyright infringement.", which is strange because I do not have any videos on this new account.
Based on the inability to view ad-supported movies and lack of features (I would love to just browse someone's channel or playlist), the PS3 YouTube application has a long way to go.
Right now, the way it's designed, they don't want you to spend a lot of time on it.
