Watched videos keep coming up, how can I stop that?
1
Video's that I already watched keep coming up in [suggested videos] and on the home page. What I have tried: for example, video A that i have already watched comes up. I select 'not interested', tell why and tick the box 'I've already watched the video'. This helps, for Video A.
However, Youtube does not take the hint that I may not want to rewatch all these videos. Frankly, I think I should not have to do everything I do to not see video A again, to all the other videos that reappear every day. 
Is there a setting for youtube to not show watched videos?
Thank you in advance.

I would also like such a feature, and a way to mark videos as watched would be helpful too... because lately youtube has been unmarking many videos I have already watched as having NOT been watched and then re-recommending them to me.

I agree. I'm sick of being recomeded videos I have already seen. A month or two later I see a title or thumb that looks interesting, I click it, to only discover I've seen the whole thing already and it makes me leave youtube and go watch amazon instead.

I want to see a little red line, or bar graph under a video I've already watched that shows me how much of the video percentage I've already see.

Agreed. I'm stuck in loops of the same videos - actually a the video i just watched could be next up and the same can repeat again and again. It's like i'm being dumbed down and put in a bubble.

This issue has to stop. YouTube has been gold for years. Now all of a sudden, BOOM, every recommended video is one I've already seen.

@UMRSS I had not even heard about Odysee till you mentioned it. Sounds like a plan. Making my account right now.
