Well, what do you know. Somebody in the Google company thought Czechs don’t speak English good enough to use YouTube. An application from which 99 percent of Czechs (my educated guess) use only the “key word field” and the search button. So they launched the Czech version, along with the appropriate domain.
I have three major problems with the “new YouTube”.
One, I did not ask for it and I want to use the English version. But whenever I open the page its system finds out I am logging in from the Czech Republic and it automatically offers the Czech version. Plus, some of the terms were not translated in the most appropriate way. The Czech terms simply do not match the original English use.
Two, the system offers the “you might be interested in these” videos. Yep, Czech videos. It seems like the system offers them just because they have been posted from the Czech Republic, or by a user who declared he or she was Czech. Useless shit.
And three, also very important: the Czech system picks up some tools from the original “American system”, like flagging. The flagging tool fails to reflect national and cultural differences. Example: there is an innocent home video of three girls on a beach in Brazil. Bikinis, no nudity. But of course there are uptight American YouTube users who keep flagging these videos as “not suitable for minors” [why the fuck not? what is inappropriate about bikini?]. The same disclaimer “this video is NOT SUITABLE FOR MINORS” appears in the Czech version. Czech Republic [and Czechs in general] have very different boundaries in terms of “inappropriate content”.
So to sum up: Czech version of YouTube sucks.
