The popular shifting is only mentioned narrowly in the article, although it seems to be the most common one people usually refer to now as “YTPMVs”.
I think there should be more focus on that aspect, since most modern YTPMVs are much different from the Dr. Octagonapus one, which is unpitched and just plays the footage “normally” on the entire screen with a music playing in the background. There are exceptions (e.g. “MAMAMAMA-MAMAMA-MAMA”)
But I’ve even seen a couple of YTPMVs like the one from Dr. Octagonapus without the shifting that got a miserable rating because they were related videos of the “modern YTPMVS”, and the community is already used to pitch shifting and YTPMVs that for the most part sound smooth and appealing, and apparently does not want to see the more YTP-like variants anymore.
Also what seems to be completely unmentioned is the way the footage is assembled. You’d be surprised how much there’s to talk about:
