cool youtube channelsWhy is YouTube so cool? Well, because you can watch what you want, when you want, and the variety of material you can choose from is just amazing.

Although you can not yet (legally) watch a whole lot of classic TV episodes on YouTube like Star Trek episodes Watch Full Star Trek Episodes Online on YouTube Watch Full Star Trek Episodes Online on YouTube Read More , which would be very convenient, there are tons of entertaining, informative and exciting channels that fit into any schedule and are not interrupted by annoying commercials. And that’s what makes YouTube so cool.

So I have put together a list of 10 channels I find unique, here it goes…

1. communitychannel

girl power

This girl is hilarious! Basically, she’s ranting and nagging about stuff, in a way that’s very entertaining. You definitely have to check it out.

2. AmazingPhil

AmazingPhil

AmazingPhil is the male pendant to communitychannel. A guy from the UK ranting and doing weird things and being even more crazy than the girl from down under.

3. Underground Wellness

Let’s be a bit more serious for a moment. Underground Wellness covers alternative nutrition and exercise information. Instead of imposing procedures on you like most doctors do, here is an effort to share with you the essential information that will help you understand your health-related issues and why this or that action may improve your condition. The guy behind Underground Wellness is a diet and lifestyle coach and a certified personal trainer.

4. ScienCentral

Science

Even more serious, ScienCentral features short, comprehensive clips about scientific topics that are of interest to the general public.

Recent topics included the cuddle hormone, food flavor, corn ethanol and global warming. These clips are also shown at the local TV affiliate stations of the US TV channel ABC.

5. Break A Leg TV

Break A Leg sitcom

Here we have an internet sitcom that aired its final episode in October 2008. In 17 episodes we follow the writer David Penn through his life which is bound to conclude “in a storage room, with a gun to his head and the sounds of a fake laugh track in his ears.”

If you haven’t seen it yet, at least you won’t have to wait for episodes to be completed, but can watch it right through to the end. And maybe the Break a Leg team will come up with a new project (or a second season) soon.

6. PCWizKid’s Tech Talk

Tech Talk

Very comprehensive and well-commented screencasts, featuring tips, tweaks, hardware and software reviews for Windows Vista, Windows XP and Ubuntu. These tutorials are suitable for both the novice and the slightly more experienced user.

7. Gingeronymous

ww2 veteran

This channel features videos of the 94 year old WW2 veteran Les Loken, telling his life story to his daughter, who caught it on video to share it with the world. The man passed away in 2007. He certainly lived an interesting life and had some interesting stories to tell.

8. GidovGent


mysterious

This is a channel that collects short documentary clips concerned with the mysterious, such as the Loch Ness monster, aliens, crop circles and the like. The videos are from different credible sources, like National Geographic, the BBC or the Discovery channel. Make up your own mind.

9. okiedokie969

UFO

This channel here mainly appears to collect videos of UFO sightings, but also covers material dealing with other mysteries, conspiracies and the like. Consume these clips with caution! It’s not true just because you draw the wrong conclusions from what you believe to witness. Although it may be.

10. MyDocumentaries

documentary

Here we have the most serious channel, dealing with highly political and controversial topics. The screenshot above shows a very small selection. You have to sign into YouTube to be able to watch those since some of the material is R-rated and not suitable for all audiences. So be prepared.

So what do you think? Worth your time? What are the things you watch on YouTube? Please share your coolest links with us!

    One of our members has recently opened a channel on youtube, showing off things that happen on our space station.

    c-base is one of the oldest hacker spaces in the world, and certainly the most remarkable, amazing and just mind-blowing great place!

    I think it wins on uniqueness ;)

      True. I wrote this post three days ago. Too bad.

      Here's an alternative channel for British documentaries that at least contains that hilarious "Are you 100% English" series: http://www.youtube.com/user/severndroog
