Watching videos on your desktop with a separate YouTube player does have some other advantages apart from the ones that we listed up until now. One of them would be that you can use your browser for viewing websites, and play music and videos on the side so that there’s no lag while you are browsing, which can happen with browsers on older machines. Here’s how to use this free tool to experience YouTube on desktop.
How to Watch YouTube Videos on your Desktop with YTubePlayer:
If you just want to watch a particular video, you can search it up with the search tool. Its located at the top of the right column, where playlists are situated. Type in whatever, that you are interested in and hit enter.
Window with the results is gonna pop-up. If you want to watch the video, left click on it. Left column is gonna open up the video where it should start playing. You can adjust the quality of the videos to HD, so that only HD qualities are played, in case there are any.
If you want YTubePlayer to search for similar videos and automatically create playlists, use the first two options from the default selection of options on the left which can be seen on the first image above. Click on the first one if you are searching for music, and the second one for regular videos, a window will pop-up where you’ll have to enter a name, hit enter and everything should be done automatically.
