    If anyone, like me, regularly searches Youtube for new PPC videos, you might find it helpful to combine searches together using boolean operators.

    The following line brings up videos for powerbooks, ibooks and powermacs uploaded in the last week:

    intitle:powerbook | intitle:ibook | intitle:powermac, week, video

    The | symbol is the shift backslash on my keyboard and serves as the OR operator.
    For the filters, week can be replaced with today, month or year and video is added to exclude playlists.
    Obviously the query can be extended to search for as many items as you wish.

    I then filter results in chronological order and bookmark the page.

    This might be old news to many but despite learning boolean functions 33 years ago, it only recently occurred to me to use them on Youtube :)

    Thanks, that's pretty handy. I remember when the youtube search was really bad, so you'd have to use google to search on youtube.
