You do not have that many options when it comes to watching multiple videos about a certain topic on YouTube. Logged in YouTube users can create playlists, everyone else could play a playlist if available, or click on individual videos that are listed in the search results, categories or video suggestions.
Show Me Nonstop is a third party service that offers an alternative that is most appealing to broadband users. The free service will play videos about a certain topic for as long as the user wants.
All it takes is to enter a search phrase into the form on the page to start playing videos nonstop on the site. You could enter movie trailers 2012, kittens, or a band name to start watching high definition versions about the selected search term for as long as you want.
Show Me Nonstop seems to load the high definition version of a video whenever it is available on YouTube. The next video is automatically loaded whenever the previous video ends, without user interaction.
No controls are available, which is one of the issues that users may experience, considering that this means no pausing or replaying a video. A click on the video does however skip the video that is currently playing to load the next video in the queue.
The only other control that is available is the Show Me button at the bottom of the screen. This opens the search form again with options to refine the search or search for a new term on YouTube.
Show Me Nonstop is a useful services for uses who'd like to watch multiple related YouTube videos. It works very well for specialized search terms. It is also interesting to note that you will see new videos when you search for the same term again (provided there are enough videos available on YouTube).
