Hey, YouTube: Pay your 'workers' properly and get with the times

The sound quality of Spotify, Apple is OK, meanwhile on youtube, often content sounds like the recording is from output of a single low quality headphone recorded in a toilet bowl.

In general youtube does serve a purpose of finding new music to investigate further, but (unless your hearing is totally borked) it's rather unenjoyable listening to youtube sound quality for long periods of time.

Yes, there are exceptions where youtube sound quality is OK, but in general that is not the case.

So it seems reasonable to me that a youtube listen is worth less than a spotify listen, as it's typically a lower quality sound experience.
