I've only been a "Shaving Enthusiast" for a few months now. I did a lot of learning on YouTube those first few weeks getting reacquainted with a DE razor and especially new experiences like brush and lather. 
There's lots out there, a lot of them I haven't tried. 

What's your favorite YouTube shaving channel?

If you care to share; what's your favorite non-shaving channel?

Mine:

I'm a fan of the mad scientist but I favor Chris Bailey's channel, iLather.

My favorite non shaving channel is definitely JohnGrimsmo. He's a knife maker who started in his garage, pretty interesting and intelligent.

Like Busta and Chris (ilather). Nick Shaves would be my favourite though, not as active of late due to schedule. Always balanced and informative.

Geofatboy got me into wet shaving after seeing his videos on YouTube.

Cheap Shaver. Out. No dramas, no nonsense. Good insights.

Nick Shaves got his start acting as a mouthpiece for Douglas Smythe. Bailey believes that if you use high end products, you are a member of an elite, "ascot and checkered pants" club. Busta gets his kicks parodying Bailey. Peter Charkalis spends his time shaving on the beach. None of these people present objective opinions. When I'm in the mood for a good laugh, I'll watch. Otherwise, it's very hard to take them seriously...

Tell us how you really feel.

I quit watching shaving channels a long time ago.  Now all of my youtube watching involves guns and shooting.

I used to watch these:

Nick Shaves
The Stallion
Paul H Films
GeoFatboy
Chris Bailey

But I find it harder and harder to value watching a man shave, especially when I don't feel I really learn anything from them.
Only GeoFatboy, among them I watched, has more experience than I do.

Most of the YouTubers are rookies/beginners or with barely 3-4 years experience, and I simply don't feel they can contribute with anything interesting to me.

Paul H Films I watch from time to time, but not to learn anything, because frankly he knows less about brushes and soaps than I do, by quite a margin, but he is just this cosy relaxed Gentleman, that I sometimes just enjoy to watch shave AND talk..........

I don't watch them at all.  Years ago I watched a few Geofatboy videos, but that has been the extent of it.  I've tuned into all the other guys briefly to see what they had going and, in my mind, none of them has anything useful to say.  Some are asinine.

If a video promos gear that interests me, I'll take a look. azhawk516 is someone I'll check on occasion because of that.

Don't get me started. There are some good ones out there with reviews of gear in which I'm interested, but the vast majority of them are not very good or well thought out. I admire the effort those making the videos make, and I think most of them are truly sincere, but many of them simply don't know what they're doing. Watching someone obsess over minutiae to get a socially acceptable shave is a waste.

Here in Vegas, you can find reliable 'faders'. These are the usually vocal, almost always wrong, bettors that you can 'fade'-bet against-with great confidence. They're like gold. I feel that way about some of the YouTube shavers.

I like watching Eric Burgos, who happens to be a member here. I mostly watch to hear his thoughts on driving, music, and coffee.

He also has some really great gear, including a bunch of Wolfman razors, M&F brushes, Simpson Manchurians, etc. It's interesting to hear his thoughts on these.

I do not watch as much for the act of shaving, as I'm not really interested in tips on technique at this point. As some have mentioned, I could do without the hype and drama on some other channels as well.
