My top favorites are paulsoaresjr for beginner tutorials (I learned how to play from watching them) and entertainment value, Grian for humor and building tips, fWhip for tutorials on building stunning towns. There are too many others I like and I can't list them all.
That's got to be the toughest for me. If I had to say back in the day it would be Direwolf20, Antvenom, CaptainSparklez, but due to what I do with Minecraft now I make my own content and the closest I come to watching content consistently is Xisuma's snapshot videos otherwise I don't watch many anymore. I watch others from time to time but not favourites really anymore.

No particular favorite, I mainly watch the Hermitcraft guys also. Mainly: Mumbo (Who got me into Hermit craft, I was already subscribed to for redstone tips.), Grian (Who I was already subscribed to for building tips pre season 6). Iskall85 who you would like if you like Mumbo and Grian, Scar, Stressmonster Ren("Diggity")dog, xumisavoid, Docm77, BDouble0100, and Keralis.
Outside Hermitcraft PolarSaurusRextra is a fun one and I follow ibxtoycat alot for his informative Minecraft update videos.
leangreen76 I used to watch paulsoaresjr he taught me a lot about mc. Also I watched keralis and liked his content. I think he has the voice of a khajiit from skyrim xD He kinda reminds me of one (also I might check some of those guys out thanks for suggestions!)
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I used to watch a lot of Yogscast back in the day, so their classic Minecraft series still hold a special place in my heart.
Nowadays, when I have time to sit and watch Minecraft videos, I'm usually out there trying to find other channels that are roughly my size (very small, lol), trying to discover new quality content and engaging in the community. My favorites of those, I subscribe to and keep watching. I even ended up joining the VMC-Tec server that way--I saw TecThor's series advertised here in the Let's Play section, watched it, loved it, subscribed and left comments. He reciprocated and watched my stuff, subscribed and left comments, and approximately a week later, I was playing on his server!
Some small(er) channel recommendations: all the VMC-Tec channels (TecThor, KaedenCraft, Animagician, Fidlybits, Fuzzy Husky), PuipinM, Wintertooth100, Tobyson3d, NoStress
The one big channel I still regularly keep up on is SmallishBeans. I like his humor, builds, and survival series quite a bit.
