Like many, I spend a lot of time watching videos online. Some of them are silly and time wasting but some are very educational and interesting. I propose sharing some of our favorites from all categories. I'll start with some educational ones though. :D

C.G.P. Grey - This guy does fairly short videos that explain geography, history and government in really cool ways.
MinutePhysics - These videos are very short (~2 minutes) usually and discuss various physics ideas. Great for those who have a working knowledge of physics but not at the university or graduate level.
ChessNetwork - Jerry posts videos of him playing live, speed games, analyzes famous games and much more. Really cool channel if you're into chess.

Two more channels I thought of:

1) Vsauce - The host approaches really interesting questions with highly analytical answers. Not very technical in math or physics but still discusses lots of scientific ideas.
2) numberphile - British mathematicians discuss various ideas from number theory to math problems in movies. The math won't be anything new for those at an upper-level undergraduate level and above, but for teenagers and young mathematicians there are some really interesting videos.

Some more:

1) Big Think - collection of videos on almost every interesting topic you can think of by very big names in those fields
2) MinuteEarth - similar to Minute Physics, but with a different overall theme
3) Veritasium - through interviewing people on the street, the host explores very basic but important questions that we, on the whole, seem to poorly grasp
