New ASMR Playlists Available on YouTube

Over the past two or three days I’ve been in my YouTube account sorting through the “Recommended Videos” playlist again. Guess why? It was nearing 200 videos again, and YouTube has this rather inefficient and unsatisfactory limit on the number of videos in a playlist.

After much consideration I decided, rather than start another huge playlist full of unsorted videos, that I would go another route – one which was suggested to me last year after the last sorting took place: start individual playlists based on the content of the videos.

Until the other day, we had just four playlists: the recommended playlist, along with “music”, “short films and trailers”, and the community playlist – which is gradually picking up in number.

So now, we have a total of about ten playlists or so, with titles ranging from “beauty”, which has a lot of those makeup tutorials and the like, to unboxings – the opening of packages, which usually have some sort of technological gizmo inside.

New ASMR playlistsThis has reduced the number of unsorted videos in the big playlist by quite a bit, and you now have several playlists to play around with. Videos that appear in these playlists are recommended by you - the community - when you post them on the ASMR Facebook Group wall, or in the official forum’s trigger video links thread (by the way, I also worked on this thread too, merging it with several other smaller threads with links posted in them, recently).

I don’t personally go around looking for videos all the time, but I do add the ones you recommend to these playlists, and I subscribe to channels which you all recommend as well. Generally I only favourite a limited number of videos from a single user. If two or three videos from a user are recommended, I will subscribe to that channel, and then try to not add any more of their videos to the playlists. This will prevent the playlists from growing too large and having to sort them over and over again every few months.

Anyway, more playlists might be added at a later date - and in the meantime, you may continue to post your suggestions, recommendations and so on, as usual.

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
