If you are looking for MineCrafters on YouTube and haven't come across Stampylongnose and Stampylonghead, both created by Brit, Joseph Garret, you are really missing out.

4. CaptainSparklez

Perhaps best known for its musical videos about Minecraft (and perhaps most famously for the video "Minecraft style" a parody of Psy's "Gangnam style" - you can check out that video here:

This YouTube channel has over 9 million subscribers and over a billion channel views. CaptainSparklez was created by American Jordan Maron and, other than musical videos (now also including some original MineCraft music), is a Let's play and comedy based channel. CaptainSparklez has also released several videos on MineCraft secrets.

Some members of the MineCrafting world have claimed that CaptainSparklez is not the best MineCrafter and question his popularity. Fans of the channel have hit back saying that watching him playing and seeing his mistakes are part of the reason why he is so endearing - watching other people fail is part of the fun of it. This seems to show that viewers are not always looking for the most skilled MineCrafter when choosing a YouTube channel, but rather appreciate the commentary about the game (and it is the funny commentary that has so many people coming back to this channel over and over again).
