Do you like watching ambient music videos on YouTube?

    I've been cycling through some videos on YouTube and noticed that there's a fair amount of ambient music set to certain locations.
    The images on these videos can be set anywhere, from in/around a home, inside a building like a cafe or library, out in nature like in the woods, focusing on weather like a thunderstorm or even set in/around a fictional location like Hogwarts from Harry Potter or Rivendell from Lord of the Rings.

    Question is, do you guys like watching any of these when you want to relax, meditate or sleep?

    I'll give you some examples:

    01. Wood Cabin during a Snowstorm


    02. Beach Cafe


    03. Rainy Train Journey


    04. Spaceship


    05. Hogwarts at Sunrise

    I'm at work so I can't listen - but is this ambient as in background noise for certain locations etc?

    The genre of ambient music is pretty far reaching I must admit. Some of it is minimal to the point there is no real rhythm etc. Slow paced ambient music is nice for meditation or walks outside.

    One subgenre of ambient I like is Psybient which is a fusion of Psy Trance and Ambient music. They're often space themed, long pieces with gradual and climactic builds.

    Yes, but not on a normal screen. I have the tech available to go further than that, so I do.

    This one is pretty special, and this sort of thing is one of the reasons I bought the Rift:



    Ignore the boop noises and messages popping up near the end, I forgot to tell Steam to shut the heck up before recording.

    Of course, this is VR, so the true experience cant quite be captured on a 2D video. But one way or another... it is truly amazing when you're in it. You can mess around with stuff, as I do a bit, or you can simply grab a chair, sit down, and relax. Each area is *huge*, so there's alot of spots you can move to.

    Yes. I love ambient music to sleep and meditate to.
    @AGXStarseed I would love to have a bedroom that looks like the starship sleeping quarters.

    And the VR would be very, very nice. I could find space scenes with music.
    Oh, my. I'm dreaming now!
    I settle for ambient music on cable channels. :rolleyes:
