YouCubers: The Best Cubing YouTube Channels
Probably the best and easiest way of reviewing twisty puzzles or making solution tutorials is through a YouTube video because it's easier to demonstrate this way how the puzzle works. We have collected the most important cubing channels which specialise in cube reviews, tutorials, unboxing videos, how-tos, competition footages but there are custom puzzle builders in our list who unveil their inventions on their YouTube channels.
The subscriber count in the article is informative and might change over time. It was recorded early 2021 and it might help you keep track of the growth or decline of a channel.
Don't forget to subscribe to their channels and give them a thumbs up!
This channel is the English version of a Russian youtube channel. It is very popular and many people were surprised at its extremely fast growth. The videos are nicely edited, however he does not rerecord the videos, rather, he takes the audio away from the initial clip and adds in English words. He does not make solely cubing content, but the majority is cubing. He is not sponsored by a cubing store, unlike most of the others on this list. Solving a cube while skydiving is one of his most daredevil videos, and he keeps surprising us. He once even solved a 17x17. Subscribe to his channel and he'll never stop surprising you.

I'm including this channel because of subscriber count. There are too many ads, the sound and overall quality is not the best but who knows maybe you'll find something interesting.
During the first lockdown in March 2020 onwards, he did daily uploads. Towards the end of that period, he passed 100,000 subscribers, which had been a goal for him since he started. Since then, however, he was uploading at best once a month, but recently has been uploading once every 3 days- a week. He has revealed that he only cubed to be sponsored, and now that he is, he doesn't know what to do anymore, so this could be a reason for his apparent creative block over the last few months. His videos are short, clickbaity, and many say badly edited. They also contain quite a few ads.
Kenneth used to post twisty puzzle videos on his YouTube channel. Unboxings, design patterns, cube reviews, 3D printing, solves and his speciality: "cube in a bottle". However, his last upload was a year ago, in December of 2019. This upload was part of a cube creation advent calendar, in which many YouCubers made custom cubes and made a video on them and the creation process. His contribution was a 2x2x3 Baby Yoda cube while his most popular video is a 17x17x17 cube solve time-lapse. He has just over 400K subscribers, and his channel was made in 2009.

Badmephisto's channel and website lists normal, blindfolded and one handed tutorials but he's specialized in the advanced Fridrich method.

“Shawn, from speedcubereview.com” is another SCS sponsoree. He has 84K subscribers, and makes unboxings, modding videos, reviews of not just cubes, but also cubing apps, a few tips and tricks videos and obviously reviews of the best cube brands.
A recent addition to the SCS line of sponsorees, Cube Solve Hero, or CSH, is best known for his unboxings. He is quite a slow solver compared to many other YouCubers, averaging about 30 seconds. One of his distinguishing features is his slick and seamless editing, which allows him to make jump cuts that look as though he has pulled cubes out of one another. He recently passed 50K subscribers, but, like Cubing Encoded, has been having a creative block recently.
