Default Filename plays YouTube videos uploaded straight from the camera without edits

YouTube in 2006 was a radically different place from the site we know today, which presents videos aggressively according to a recommendation algorithm that knows every inch of our viewing habits. The default TV file name, created by artist Everest Pipkin, aims to get us closer to the first days of YouTube by "delivering videos that have been uploaded from the camera without editing the file name."

With titles like "DSC 1197" and "IMG 3356", the videos are pure and authentic visions of life beyond our own bubbles and even our own continents. Most of the videos I saw were full of voices that speak foreign languages, in places where I could not begin to point remotely. They are videos that people have uploaded to YouTube for their own purposes, which are not explicitly shared with an audience in mind.

"I started to create this search function as a tool for myself, to find the kind of videos that I like, because it does not happen in the browser anymore," says Pipkin. "I was quite surprised by the videos that served and I thought you should just order it and let others use it in the same way. "They launched the site yesterday.

An alternative purpose of the project is to completely destroy YouTube's idea of ​​what you, the viewer, are interested in. " I also hoped that by allowing this to run while connected, and radically distorting my view's history in noise, I could change the type of videos that come to my recommendations while navigating ambient ally, "says Pipkin. However, if you really enjoy the videos YouTube recommends, you may want to see the default file name while offline or in an incognito browser, just in case.

The default TV file name "has a unique name and somewhat threatening, but also soothing. energy ", wrote a viewer on Twitter which reflects my experience on the site, most of the videos have been perfectly pleasant (waves breaking on the coast for five seconds) and pleasantly disconcerting (a woman is being pulled in a carriage by five dogs, below), but a couple of viewers have reported that they have run into foot fetish videos. Pipkin says that Strict SafeSearch is activated, but some videos can still slip, as they tend to do in YouTube.

The videos are not limited by the duration, but most of the clips I've seen have less than a minute, and the longest I've been served has been five minutes. found with a single ad, probably because users who uploaded videos have not activated the monetization.After all, if users did not bother to change the name of the file, it is very likely that they have Once a video is only for them, the ad revenues can be condemned.

Similar projects like (which has no security filter and can potentially have NSFW and Randomly Inspired videos (serving videos with zero views), but each aggregator has its own vibes, and it never hurts to have more Possibilities to appreciate these quieter corners of the Internet Before the miniatures of clickbait and the concept of vloggers, YouTube was little more than a website to see videos uploaded from a point-and-shoot camera Default file name returns us there.
