That is why Youtube is the wrong place to go to research a topic. You will find yourself drowning in too many personalities and not enough discrete content. You are not the intended audience. The people you are viewing don't want you to appreciate the content on a random basis; they want you to feel entertained enough to want to come back to the person, i.e. to hit 'Subscribe'.


I find a lot of good info on youtube personally, but I agree with you on the above.  I've noticed over the past year or so more of the channels I subscribe to have been using their own image in the video thumbnail (usually making funny faces).  To me, this makes it seem like the video is going to be more about them (for entertainment as you say) and less about the actual content/subject.
