Kandice This doesn't fit your request, but there is an old television movie that a friend of mine watched every year for decades. They stopped playing it and when we tried to find a copy to buy it was priced outrageously! We found it on YouTube and schedule a date to watch each year.

It's called Sweet Hostage and stars Martin Sheen and Linda Blair. It has since been released on DVD, but we still do YouTube. ;)

W | 355 comments He Walked by Night (film noir,the search for a policeman's killer).
The Thin Red Line (1964,war film based on the James Jones book.Music is a bit too loud,however,and the 1998 film is better).
Broken Arrow (Western,with James Stewart).

I do NOT watch movies on Youtube unless I have no other choice, which is usually the case with silent films. Watching movies on a computer is not ideal because it is easy to get distracted. Also the picture quality is usually lacking. I've never understood why someone would choose to watch a movie or a tv show on their phone. Not to mention copyright violations.

W | 355 comments And what if the movies are not available where one lives and if there are no TV channels showing older films ? Then youtube becomes very useful.

Yes, that's why I say it is a last resort for me.

Kandice You can always cast to your television or use a cord to show it on your tv screen. If you can't get YouTube on your tv, that is.
