    This is what I mean. Find something where you understand around 80%. 30-40% is not enough. I suggest a YouTube video of only one person talking.

    But for example, if I hear a word and I don't understand this, I will not understand this. It says to me, that I need to increase my vocabulary.
    I don't follow what you are trying to say. Yes, of course you need to increase your vocabulary.

    That's exactly what I'm trying to do! Find some YouTube channels about video games or movies or science or top ten lists of things, whatever you like, and watch them.

    Is that all what I need to do?

    I suggest that you stick to short, simple sentences for the time being. (Jutfrank gives good advice.)

    Well, it depends what you want to achieve exactly. If you want to quickly and effectively improve your listening comprehension, as well as your vocabulary and grammar, and in turn your pronunciation and speaking competence, then yes, that should suffice for a while.

    As a general rule, the more practice you get, the faster you will improve. So try to watch as much as you can.
