If you're tired of your alarm clock, you can use the Video Alarm Clock to wake up to your favorite YouTube video. It's easy-to-use and works like you'd expect any music alarm clock to work, giving you the extra of not having to wake up to the same alarm sound all the time.
Using the YouTube Alarm Clock is quite simple. First, set the alarm time with the pair of dropdown boxes that decide the hour and minute that the video alarm clock will start. If you aren't familiar with the 12-hour clock, you can use the 24-hour clock converter. Next, type in video keywords to the input and make sure that the video can be played. Optionally, navigate to under the video and set the snooze time you want to allow yourself. Finally, click on the "Set the Alarm" button. Once the clock has been set, you need to keep the tab active for it to work, which means you can't look at other pages and still have the alarm. Also, it's online, so obviously it can't be used without the internet.
You can choose whatever video you'd like to wake you up, and the mechanism to find videos is quick and effective. Just below where you chose the time, there is a box that lets you type in words to describe the video you want. Describing what you want is important. For example, if you type "David Bowie Heroes" into the box, you may get the original version or a live collaboration with Queen. If you want a specific video, the better idea is to put in the id of the video, the last eleven characters of the YouTube URL, such as "dQw4w9WgXcQ".
Most alarm clocks come with only a few alarm sounds, so being able to choose a video from YouTube's entire collection gives waking up a new dimension and adds a lot of options for you to choose from. Thanks to this YouTube alarm clock, you can wake up to the sound of waves swooshing or a meditation timer video from your favorite guru. It's also easy-to-use, like using a stopwatch, and you can set an online timer under a minute. You have the versatility of using this YouTube alarm app either on your computer or in the browser of a mobile device.
