Who Else Hates Vessel?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is NOT about the content; I love getting LTT videos early. It's the site and service itself that's horrendous. The comment system is harder to keep up with and less efficient than YouTube's, which is saying something. And I refuse to watch a video at 480p when YouTube can play back the same quality in 1080p without all the stuttering and buffering, that's a massive caveat. This is extremely annoying when I want to watch LTT at some place without the strongest internet connection. Overall, I can't see myself every paying for the service in the condition it is, it offers nothing innovative over YouTube and does everything else much worse. They owe it to the great content creators like Linus to make their service better, even if they offer higher commission than YT. Actually, although there are other huge YouTubers on Vessel, Linus seems to be the only one with any real traction on Vessel. Every time I search up Linus, Ellen's channel pops up first for whatever reason. Although Ellen has a much, much bigger following than Linus on YouTube, her Vessel channel is pathetic. Each video only has a couple likes and new videos are basically ignored, while Linus has thousands of likes. Also, GMM is no longer on Vessel (didn't like them particularly but they're huge YouTubers), idk why. Basically, I would be paying $3 a month just to watch LTT, which based on what I've seen, is most people on Vessel. Although I would gladly do that, Vessel itself is crap.

 

TL;DR Vessel sucks, and I'd rather pay to watch LTT vids early somewhere else (YouTube Red? Idk).

The sad part about Vessel is it’s probably just natural overhead killing their ability to process content… doesn’t anybody remember how unprofitable YouTube was in 2015?

Yeah. I wouldn't pay for it either. I'm just saying if I was planning to pay for it, Vessel would be my last choice because it's junk.

I couldn't have put it better myself. I like watching LTT videos early (or more specifically, I don't like watching them late, which is what YouTube now basically is), but Vessel itself isn't a patch on YouTube. Unfortunately YT Red isn't available in the UK, so even if LTT videos were released early on there, I couldn't watch them :( .

if you didnt know vessel existed, would you even notice?

 

The videos that are time sensitive are released on YT at the same time anyway, other than a mental thing about "being early" you still see the same content

I mean if you see a video about a computer warming up pizza, does it matter if its now, or in a week? you still get a video every day


to me its more annoying its early, because if I wanted to watch it on vessell, next time I log in on youtube the same damn video is there

Eh. I do support content creators and am a Linus fan. I think Vessel is the absolute opposite of what it was supposed to be. In the state it is now, Vessel is a miserable desert with one shiny glass building in the center (Linus), once everybody's free trial is up, including my own, we're packing our bags and leaving. After that, Vessel will just be a inhabitable wasteland lol.

I too hate Vessel. I don't see how they can expect anyone to pay when they can't stream HD content reliably. I also don't care about getting content earlier than on YouTube.However, I do wish the Linus Media Group guys weren't doing this Nerd Sports channel exclusively on Vessel, not because I'm unwilling to pay for the content but because I am unwilling to pay for Vessel's crappy service.

I don't "hate" Vessel, I'm just really disappointed in how much of a flop it is. I was really hoping that it could do something good and bring some nice competition to YouTube, but they failed misserably.

 

Oh God, now I sound like a 'parent of the internet'.... "I'm not mad, Vessel, I'm just really disappointed."

True. I get your point about how it doesn't matter if I see vids early lol. Just goes more to prove how much of a flop vessel is because the service itself sucks and some people don't care about watching stuff early.

Probably not, but I do know it exists, which I realise is exactly the marketing trap Vessel is designed to make you fall into. 

 

That said, I like LTT and I'd like to support them. I don't want T-Shirts etc and I don't want to just hand over cash in the form of a donation via the forum to someone who is already quite obviously far richer than I am. A paid Vessel subscription at ~£15 per year seems a decent option. As for Vessel's apparently crap streaming, I've got a 200mbps connection, so I can't say I've ever noticed Vessel being any worse than YT in that regard.

Thats the problem to me, there is no real incentive to pay for it and the platform offers no real advantage, i dont care enough about watching a video early, since it makes no difference to the end user

 

and since not EVERY person I watch is on Vessel, its really more annoying just to have to go here

I personally dont fall into that marketing trap, I couldn't give a flying toss, I still get a video today, whether I watch it now, or in a week, why should I care? its not that I am NOT getting the videos

Wait.. you want to support them...but not send them money because they are richer than you?... WHAT ?


thats like going "I will pay to go to that bands concert but im not buying the CD because they are too rich" - that makes no sense

also they are not rich, most stuff is given to them for free, if they were rich linus would not drive a crummy falling to pieces car with his family inside

this is exactly my opinion, Vessel was when i tried my week or month or whatever it was for free it first of looked cool but then it just got to instant shit when it wonderd what categorys of content i enjoyed and went down hill from there, its a pice of shit UI wise and that was my main problem, also i have shit internet usiually and it was like BAM lowest quality because screw you when youtube was just fine :/ i dont HATE it, but 1: if i can get it free then i will, thats why im not even paying for spotify and still listening to adds, 2: if its harder to use and less optimised then the free option, in this case youtube, then why use it 3: content is content, its there to keep me entertained and thats about it, so why does it matter that much when its realesed? yah sure its fun to watch something when it was created but not being able to then talk about it freely because that would spoil it for people pisses me off


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Except for the first month or two, I haven't had any issues with resolution on Vessel. 1080p every time, and it doesn't have random problems like Youtube.

 

Comment system, meh. I guess Youtube's is technically better, but the people in Youtube comments are cancer.

 

Since Vessel is also ad-free for me for another few days, it's currently superior to Youtube for me. But I doubt I'm going to bother to pay for it.

No, I said I don't want to hand over cash in the form of a donation, not that I'm not willing to support them via a paid means. In fact, I quite clearly said I would support them via a paid means.

 

Giving cash to someone for no goods or service is either charity or a gift, neither of which I'm willing to provide to LMG on the basis that I don't know them personally, therefore wouldn't give them a gift, and they're clearly better off than myself, therefore not in need of charity. However, cash for goods or a service (such as early access to videos) is standard business practice and something I'm perfectly willing to engage in and happy that the money supports a cause I enjoy, whilst also benefiting myself. 

 

If they're not rich, they're certainly not poor. Linus' house is very nice and I'm sure Linus has driven his wife's car in a video before (maybe one of the scrapyard wars?) and it's much less...pink crappy.

I follow Hardware Canucks there, and Unboxtherapy, Tech Source and LinusTechTips ofcourse, nothing more than that.

I prefer to watch as they are released, for fear any delays could cause the video to lose relevance.

However I trust LTT (and any other uploader who I watch on Vessel) to not put time sensitive content behind a paywall.

 

For me Vessel is a near broken PoS that can't hold a candle to Youtube in every aspect.

Literally the only reason anyone could have to use their service, is to watch early uploads.

And if everything going for them hinges on a single point, I'm sorry they not getting my money.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.
