@dipset Oh my god thank you! I stumbled across this channel about a year ago and had totally forgotten about it. "The Orioles Are Bad at Baseball" is a classic. And his lip reading is seriously insane. I did not subscribe to any sports channels until right now. Thanks again!
That Thornton-Engelland video is awesome.

Reviews/retrospectives of games:
SsethTzeentach. I love his breakneck style of humor, it's not for everyone but I enjoy it a lot. He usually cover old or weird PC games or games from "B tier" publishers.
minimme. He used to cover graphically impressive games from specific handhelds and consoles, and recently he's been covering licensed games of the past (007 games, for example) and other forgotten oddities. I enjoy his relaxed way of presenting things. Plus, he's a master at making nightmare-fuel thumbnails.
Video essays about/related games
I don't care much for these type of videos anymore, but I really, really enjoy Jacob Geller's videos. He articulates his points so well, and his video ideas are quite interesting.
Technology Connections is a tech channel that primarily focuses on showing how random things work. I really like the presenter's humor and presentation style. Not only he's trying his best to make things as understandable as possible, he also comes off as a very passionate person.
Video game easter eggs
There's no contest, oddheader is the best easter egg channel ever. I never heard of 90% of the things he showed, it's so refreshing to discover new stuff with each upload instead of retreading well known easter eggs.
Ichika Nito. He's a super skilled guitar player, can't get enough of his beautiful jams/tunes.
Middle 8. Makes video essays about specific albums and artists.
Two Minute Papers
The name says it all. Basically makes short videos about papers from all sorts of fields.

I follow a ton of channels but to keep it simple I'll just post five that are (relatively) small. Instead of going at lengths to describe why I'll like them I'll just post a video and let you discover that for yourself (with a fair warning that you might not like some of their senses of humor.)

Wintergatan, home of engineer/musician Martin Molin, constructor of the viral hit Marble Machine, a wild and artistic musical instrument.
That was just its rough form, though. Every Wednesday, he releases another video showing the long and arduous development of the Marble Machine X (MMX), a more flexible, reliable, and solidly built version that will eventually be able to be taken on a world tour.
Arlo, a fuzzy blue hardcore Nintendo fan. His popularity started with a video slamming the dumbing down of the Paper Mario franchise.
He consistently releases all manner of videos on Nintendo - news, reviews, opinions. His demeanor matches the lighthearted vibe of Nintendo, but as seen above, he isn't afraid to call them out.
Stryder7x, the pope of Paper Mario 64 glitches and half A presses.
Did you know EVERYTHING crashes Paper Mario? NO EXCEPTIONS!
FamilyJules, one of many metal guitar video game cover channels. But his covers feel different. They have a bubbly energy to them, stick to the original melodies, and his guitar tone hits a sweet spot - not too clean, not too harsh.
I discovered him when this video was posted on the front page of ZeldaUniverse.net
My favorite things on his channel are his Nintendo 64 medleys and his Pokémon covers.
Bright Sun Films, producers of documentaries about the history and exploration of abandoned properties, from Disney parks to department stores to shipwrecks.
Abandoned places are their bread-and-butter, but they have two other series, Cancelled and Bankrupt, which are self-explanatory.
Larry Bundy Jr., British video game commentator, producer of the series Fact Hunt, detailing infamous and salacious moments in the history of the video game industry. One of the few remaining members of Channel Awesome (of Nostalgia Critic fame), which had a mass exodus after a workplace scandal.
Cody'sLab, your friendly mad scientist.
Other channels I watch less often:
Techmoan, similar to Tech Conn, but focusing on retro A/V equipment. Great occasional bonus bits with puppets.
The Electric Playground, YouTube continuation of the best video game TV show ever, hosted by Victor Lucas.
AutomaticGainsay, demos of analog synthesizers.

Wow I didn’t realize how much content this thread would gather in less than a day. I have a lot to pour over now. Def don’t feel obligated to do a write up either but it might help people.
I have another music one I really like which I’ll share later.

SB Nation Makes sports videos focused on telling stories of teams and players. I enjoy their Beef History series.

The music channel I mentioned earlier is Trash Theory. I love this channel. In their 'About' section they mention that they make videos about all forms of entertainment but British music is their bread and butter. Really awesome deep dives into the history of certain genres.
I love their video on The Prodigy and another one about "Ghost Town" by The Specials.
Instagram is the way to go for instant skate clips, but I subscribe to a lot of the skate teams individually. Beagle, the filmer for Baker and Deathwish, has his own channel called HIJINX Net where he's just publishing his countless old video tapes of what he calls "hijinx" aka behind the scenes unpredictable moments.
BEAGLE TAPES: Episode 02 - Terry Kennedy
Nine Club is a skateboarding podcast hosted by GIRL Skateboard's pro Chris Roberts who was pretty prominent in the 90s scene and has some great video parts over the years. This is by skaters for skaters so I don't know if there is much to latch onto if you're not into skating.
I linked this interview because it's with Sunny Suljic who is an amazing skater, the star of the film Mid 90s, but you probably all know him better as Atreus from God of War (2018).

Finally got around to this, so here are two of my favorite channels:
It's a channel devoted to the history of amusement parks (and some television stuff), and it handles everything with great care. The production values are surprisingly high, and it manages to be both informative and wildly entertaining. The guy who runs it is also a big Jim Henson fan so there's a lot of great muppet stuff there.
I just love this man. He does a variety of videos, but his greatest draw is that he is unapologetically himself. He likes what he likes, and doesn't like what he doesn't like, and there's something very refreshing about that. There's a sincerity there that is really nice too.
I was planning on talking about some others but I lost interest halfway through, so I'll cap it at two for now.

I forgot to mention this channel before: MrMobile/Michael Fisher. It's a tech channel that focuses on the latest mobile/portable technology, including smartphones, laptops and wearables. The production value of each video is great, and Michael is a very good speaker. The most interesting content from his channel for me is the recently started When Phones Were Fun series, where he covers weird ass phones from the past.
Also, as someone who doesn't play CSGO anymore and only watch matches, I massively enjoy 3kliksphilip's content. He would go to great lengths make weird/irrelevant topics like this one way more fun than it should be.

The wackiest inventor on Youtube. He's made everything from wolverine claws to an underground bunker in his back garden. Hilariously, the bunker increased his houses property value so much that the house comes with the bunker, the bunker doesn't come with the house.
Eddie Woo - I realised last year that my mathematics knowledge had slipped quite a bit since I left University over 4 years ago. Eddie films his lessons and posts them on his channel. They're really entertaining, and they range from one offs that most people could understand to complex algebra that you might remember from High School or College.
Many ATrueNerd - One of my favourite channels on Youtube for the past 5 years. ManyATrueNerd is best known for his Fallout You Only Live Once series. Where he has completed Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas on a single Health Bar, with no healing, and all health tracked externally in case the game auto healed him for whatever reason. He's also completed Fallout New Vegas without killing a single enemy or creature, skipping only a few side quests in the entire game.
But he also runs a really entertaining Let's Play channel. He's do lots of one off videos, especially focussing on Indie Games that you probably won't see on other channels. But he also roleplays Grand Strategy games. He's also managed to culture a wonderful friendly community. I strongly recommend finding a video you think you might like and settling in.
PeopleMakeGames - A Patreon funded channel started by Chris Bratt, previously of VideoGamerUK and Eurogamer. It was largely inspired by the fallout from No Man's Sky, and the vitriol that Hello Games and Sean Murray received. Chris wanted to make a channel that told interesting stories from the games industry that would entertain people, and more importantly, remind them that People Make Games, not faceless corporate entities.
Tom Scott - A British bloke that makes interesting videos about interesting things.

Look Mum No Computer. A synth channel with a lot of ambitious and creative projects.
Anton Petrov. Really like this channel of Astronomy/Physics. Mostly because it focuses on recent scientific papers/studies so it's a good way to keep informed about what's going on. Thumbnail and title of the videos are click-bait(ish) but content is good.
Numberphile. Gonna be honest, occasionally I just like to have a special cookies and blow my mind with mathematics. Accessible and short videos.
Just funny and we'll written reviews.
Boston Dynamics. I like to keep an eye on our future overlords.
Nostalgia Nerd. Retro game and technology channel.
Chicken Connoisseur. Reviews of UK chicken joints. Just pure gold imo.
Vic Berger. Political surrealism clips.

@bard91 I know "sweet old lay" is probably accidental, but it's very funny to me. Also I've been following her on Twitter for a little while and she's super sweet.
