Casey changed her Apple ID password because she thought she was getting hacked and people were using her data to watch YouTube. Apple said that she wasn't, though she says she hasn't been using her data and it's almost entirely used up for the month. Jason says that her Apple ID shouldn't have an impact on YouTube, so he's skeptical about whether it's connected to her Apple ID. More likely it's preferences for YouTube.
Dean would like to have a TV on his wall that he can use as a kind of motion video frame. Scott says any TV will do, and he can just connect it to a Blu-ray player and then have it set to play on a loop. The chatroom says that there's waving American flags on YouTube lasting up to 10 hours that he could play as well. With a Smart TV, he can navigate to YouTube with his TV's browser and play it. Scott says it will pump light into the room, though, and so when watching a movie, he should turn it off.
Ralph's pastor wants a camera to use to post videos and teach at church. Leo says that most point and shoot cameras take great video, but what he'll want to be sure he gets a camera that can support an external microphone so he'll sound better. Then he can plug in a lavalier mic.
How would James go about selling a movie he made online? Leo says promotion has changed over the last few years. "Going viral" is the way things are done these days, but that's actually a good thing. It means that we all have a better chance of being successful with content we create. If it goes viral, then it takes on a life of itself. Taking something to market is a challenge, though. How would he break through the noise?
Caesar is into gaming. He wants to create a YouTube channel to make "Let's Play" videos. Leo says that Twitch is a better option and he can save it to YouTube after he plays. He'll want to record the game play with an image of him in a box in the corner. Leo says he'll want to use OBS for that, and he'll also need a camera.
Douglas discovered Dirpy, a website for downloading video from YouTube. Sometimes it freezes up, though. Leo says that Google may be trying to block it. There are plenty of others to choose from. The Chatroom says YouTube-DL is a good option. It's an open source program that runs from the command line of your PC. Leo also recommends KeepVid.
Jason doesn't like his YouTube channel name and he wants to change it. Google says that if the channel is connected to Google Plus, it can be changed by clicking on the pencil icon next to the name. There's a limit to the number of times it can be changed, though. Jason should click on the user icon at the top of the YouTube page.
CC is retired and is into YouTube videos now, but lately he's getting notifications to watch videos on HTML5. How can he watch those? Leo says that any browser can stream HTML5. YouTube has converted all videos to HTML5 now. If he right clicks on the video, it'll give him information on what kind of video is playing.
The chatroom says that CC could have installed a player as its default player and that's causing the confusion. CC should look in his browser menu and go to add-ons. If he finds one there, he should disable it.
Brian has a physics blog and wants to make videos available for people to download, but YouTube doesn't allow for that. Leo says that Vimeo can do it, and it gives users the options of mobile, SD and HD quality. He'll have to create a separate Vimeo account to log in, but it's free. There are third party download options. Leo says most students won't really want to download the video, they'll just save it to a playlist.
Steven has created a new tooth brush that fights bad breath. However, he's been told he needs to get on social media. But he's scared about hiring someone to do his social media. Leo says don't! Do it yourself! And since his wife did an amazing job on his website (check out NeutralizerPlus.com) she can easily navigate the waters of social media. Go with Facebook and Twitter, and maybe Snapchat for the younger crowd. That's it. Also have a YouTube channel.
