You Tube -How Does It work
« on: September 06, 2018, 06:45:48 AM »
Hello all,

I've been watching a few Y/T music & keyboard videos & they are quite enjoyable.

I'm not quite sure where to go from here, so here are my concerns.

1.   Do I need to subscribe to a channel. ?

2.   Is it free or will it cost $. ?

3.   Do I need to set up MY CHANNEL. ?

4.   Can i download the video's I like & save them to my H/D. ?

5.   Do I need special software for this. ?

I do have a GOOGLE account & run Windows 7.

Regards

Alan

1.   Do I need to subscribe to a channel. ? No, but if you like a particular persons uploads and want to see more then you can subscribe to their channel this is free, then click the bell icon next to the subscibe button then you will be notified of new uploads by that person you subscribed to.

2.   Is it free or will it cost $. ? Yes it is free unless you want to pay for premium membership - You will need to look into that further on the site

3.   Do I need to set up MY CHANNEL. ? Yes if you want to upload any video/music  content

4.   Can i download the video's I like & save them to my H/D. ? Yes

5.   Do I need special software for this. ? You will need a  MP3 / MP4  from Youtube converter you can find some free converters on the internet just google youtube converters.

I do have a GOOGLE account & run Windows 7. That is great just sign into that account because youtube is part of google

hope this helps

You don't need a google account to watch YouTube (yet!)

If you do log in with your google account you will be able to comment on the videos, however remember that google will then track which videos you are watching and they will appear on your history wherever you log in. That may or may not be an issue for you.

The secret is to have two Google accounts, with one having unidentifiable name and pass.
And always log out of google when you don't need it!
Google are MASTERS of tracking your every move.

Dell,  -  Thanks for answering my concerns.

Derek A  -  Thanks for the information.  Good point re. tracking.

Al  -  Thanks for your help.  Sound like a good move with 2 G/Accs.

I like to be well informed about something that I'm not real familiar about before jumping in.

Regards

Alan
