Question: I loved the song in a video where a guy surprises a girl with curls but ive forgot the name of the video.. They had found each other through the internet
Answer: There are 3 different things you can do to try and locate a video you have previously
watched, assuming that you haven’t cleared-out your cache. Not only that, you can
have the results appear either: 1) in alphabetical order, 2) in chronological order, or
3) as photo thumbnails:
ALPHABETICALLY (tons of results):
Highlight the URL address bar of a webpage (even this one if you want), and simply
type-in the word ”youtube” [no quotes]. From all of those various results, you’ll see
— every YouTube address you typed
— every YouTube channel you visited
— every YouTube video you watched
but, unfortunately, the listings will be in awful YouTube code (like v=Ab1Cd2eF3Gh).
CHRONOLOGICALLY (many results):
Simply click on your internet browser’s ”History” button or tap “CTRL” and the letter
“H” on your keyboard — and you will get a daily list of every website which you have
visited. Every YouTube video will be mixed-in with all of the other websites, but it’ll
actually be much easier for you to locate that particular video — because everything
will be displayed in “plain” English. And because each and every YouTube video is
in a way its own website, you’ll also be able to see the full title of every single video.
PHOTO THUMBNAILS (few results):
The other method you can try is your ‘YouTube History’. If you click that, you’ll see
thumbs of the videos that you’ve recently watched — but only the more recent ones.
(The reason for that is because everytime that you open/exit YouTube, your History
is semi-cleared and starts anew.) It might be worth trying this way because the vid
which you are looking-for may be a “related video” of something that’s already there.
Believe it or not, you can even see that viewing History from right here within Yahoo
Answers. Just click on my blue link below, and it’ll take you to ‘YOUR’ own History:
