Jerry watches YouTube travel videos and wants to know if you can embed GPS coordinates for Google Earth into a video like you can with a still image. Leo says that YouTube would have to support it. YouTube recently allowed notes linked to the timecode of a video, so it's possible. If the person making the video wanted to take the time to use that feature, it's possible.
Edward wants an ad blocker for his browser. Leo says that UBlock Origin is the one he recommends. While his program is advertiser supported, he supports ad blockers because online ads represent a potential security risk. The ads also can be tedious when they are popups or use too many ads on a page. But on the other hand, Leo recommends throwing the sites a few bucks a year to make up for it.
Can he get an ad blocker for YouTube Music? Leo says there is ... it's called a paid subscription. If he pays for YouTube Premium, he can enjoy YouTube content ad-free.
Another indication of the world content changing, the Trump Campaign is moving nearly all their advertising dollars away from TV to YouTube. Leo says that this just shows how people are getting the content they crave, and that it's wiser to send your message where they currently are, and that's YouTube.
John doesn't get notifications from YouTube anymore, even though he selects the notification bell on the channel. Leo says to check YouTube settings to make sure that notification settings are turned on. Make sure email is turned on in your preferences. Check the spam folder to see if they're getting routed into spam from the inbox. Also, select PUSH.
David is having issues with contact duplications across multiple contact lists due to sync. What can he do to clean them up? Leo says to pick one contact list to clean up. You can use apps to find duplicates and merge them into a single contact. It'll take some time. Though Leo doesn't advise deleting old ones, in case you need to contact them someday. Once you've eliminated the dupes. SAVE IT. Back it up. It's your "canonical address book."
If you want to share a video with friends and family members, but not have to worry about file formats and codecs (NTFS, FAT32, etc.) that may be incompatible with their computer/device, upload to Youtube. You don't even have to make Youtube videos public, as there are a couple of options that keep your upload out of public searchability. "Private" allows ONLY the person logged into the account to view the video, most likely you (the uploader). However, "Unlisted" allows the uploader to send a simple link out to acquaintances, who can then watch it on their screens without being logged in.
Ed converted a bunch of home movies into digital format on a USB key. He wants to share them with family, but he has to convert them. What does he do? Leo says that as long as the USB key is formatted for FAT32 or ExFAT, it should be compatible with both. NTFS won't work for most macs. Then there's the video format. If it's WMV, Macs can't play it back. But MP4 is modern and ubiquitous. What if the person he's sharing with has a mobile phone? Leo recommends sharing them on YouTube. Set videos to private and then send them a link to share. That's the easiest way.
Paul was in the recent Erick Whitaker's Virtual Choir on YouTube, and he'd like to do that on YouTube. How does he do that without latency? Leo says that You can do it by having people record their track, clapping at the very beginning, so there's a reference to sync them up. Whitaker sells a hard drive that shows how he does the virtual choir and while it sounds beautiful, it's expensive.
Johnny Jet joins Leo to talk about how passengers need to wake up and wear a mask while they are traveling. Airlines are also starting to test passengers before they load the plane, but still, people are getting infected while traveling. Most Airlines are not selling middle seats and are requiring masks to board the plane. Johnny says the TSA is also now allowing up to 12 oz of hand sanitizer and wipes. Passengers will also need to separate out their foot in a clear plastic container.
