YouTube has become the place to go for entertainment and knowledge videos. From gaming to life hacks to music, YouTube has something for everyone.
The five channels mentioned in this list are very popular, having hundreds of videos and millions of subscribers. Whether you are looking for fun science videos, life hacks, or top ten lists, these channels have got you covered.
As of 2017, Fine Brothers Entertainment (FBE) has well over fifteen million subscribers. Two brothers, Benny and Rafi Fine, also known as Fine Brothers, created this channel.
They are best known for their award winning ‘React’ series, where people of different age groups react to different trends. These reaction videos, including Teens React, Elders React, and Youtubers React, have millions of viewers worldwide. FBE’s videos are fun, informative and a great way to catch up on the latest trends.
When I stumbled across this channel, I was hooked right after the very first sentence in the trailer video: “Humans are apes with smartphones…” The video goes on to explain in crisp, easy-to-understand narration about Earth and the universe. The channel promises to explore questions like, “What is life?” and “Are there aliens?”.
“Kurzgesagt” is a German word that means “in short” or “in a nutshell.” And that’s exactly what these videos are: complex, sometimes controversial topics in a nutshell. The animations are gorgeous, and the channel offers subtitles for their videos in almost 40 languages including Arabic and Chinese!
With more than 4.5 million subscribers as of 2017, this channel encourages the viewer to “experience the joy of doing it yourself!” Although the title says ‘crafts’, this channel contains videos on so much more. Life hacks that are ‘borderline genius’, fun make-at-home craft ideas etc. The videos on the 5-Minute Crafts channel can make your life easier in more ways than one.
One of their most popular videos can actually save your life. Watch this video and learn how to survive dangerous situations like being caught in a falling elevator and how to save someone who is choking.
If you love short countdown videos, Top5s is one of the best channels to find them. This channel boasts of over 2 million subscribers and has more than a hundred videos. Unexplained footage, secret research facilities, mysterious disappearances etc., the list is endless.
The video below, called ‘5 Strongest Signs of Aliens & Alien Life’, is this channel’s most viewed upload. I must warn you though, these creepy videos are extremely addictive!
AsapSCIENCE explores various science concepts using white boards and colorful markers. This gives the videos a nostalgic classroom feel. One of the most popular videos on the channel is their scientific solution to the infamous dress that dumbfounded the world.
