** Someone who had looked at the copyright laws more thoroughly than I said that you can get fined for ''watching'' a video. Yeah, I don't know either. They need to take measures with this utter clusterfuck of a layout soon otherwise I'll go crazy. Unfortunately, YouTube are too much of a doormat to partner companies to do anything, along with TheyJustDidntCare.

* Why isn't You Tube fixing their faulty copyright system, or punishing people who abuse it? Surely they must be aware of the problems on their website. Some companies are filing bogus copyright strikes against innocent You Tubers. There are cases where you can receive a strike just for talking badly about a movie (I'm not kidding). Even if you are not showing clips, or audio of the movie, you can get a strike just for discussing it in a vlog.

* What's wrong with the video player? At the time of writing this, every time I pause the video it stops playing sound and buffers a bit, and then it goes back to normal.

Added DiffLines:

*** In answer to your actual question the blocking will be based on the tags on the videos and the music you were trying to listen to probably had video games in its tags which i would assume was one of the tags banned by your school to stop people watching gaming videos in lessons.

Even Website/DeviantArt lets people view the work of a user that was banned from the site, even the stuff that got them banned to begin with! Wouldn't it be easier to just delete the offending videos, and disable the option to upload further videos under that channel? This is a serious problem, because this is how a lot of the good videos on the site get LostForever, not because they infringed copyright, but because the user that uploaded it got suspended over ''[[DarthWiki/WallBanger a completely unrelated video]]''.

*** I'm Christian, and I won't lie, I've done this. The topic that gets my blood boiling is homosexuality, and whether or not it's a choice. I saw this video that out of nowhere says people are born gay and immediately I exploded in the comments, since my mind interprets that statement as "there was no Christ." I really should've thought ahead. It got SO bad I deleted my YouTube account for reputational purposes and have realized that what I did wasn't very Christ-like. I've gotten better, though.

** I don't think that has anything to do with YouTube, just the people uploading them. The thumbnail and the length of the video are meant to make you think it's the movie instead of just a link to where you can watch it (and I've seen some where the thumbnail is just the studio logo... and sometimes not even the studio that made the movie).

** Similar thing happened with me. I watched ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'' in parts on Youtube, and the only scene that had been taken down for copyright was the last scene. And another channel filled with ''Film/TheAvengers'' clips only got one taken down, which was the one I liked... ([[PortmanteauCoupleName Pepperony]])
