Finding good videos can be frustrating!
Make it a more satisfying experience by using these strategies:
- There are three ways to search: by segments, by titles, and by transcript - Segments will bring back more targeted results within a title, titles will bring back full title results only, and transcripts will search through the transcripts of each video.
- Use specific search terms - A search for global warming will get thousands of results, but global warming and agricultural impact will result in fewer and more relevant results.
- Try using the "Advanced Search" screen - You'll find it easier to narrow your search to specific subject areas or during a specific time frame.
- Try an exact phrase - Searching for stem cell research will retrieve results with these three words, but to ensure that they appear as a phrase (together and in the same order), try putting them in quotation marks: "stem cell research".
