How To Watch YouTube In TV Mode On Your Computer

April 11, 2016

… and, MORE GREAT GEEK SQUEAK STUFF (#2016-015)

This week’s blog posting on “How To Watch YouTube In TV Mode On Your Computer” is actually a very easy posting for me. To go into the YouTube TV Mode on your computer, simply open your browser and type in the following URL: https://www.youtube.com/tv … That is all there is to it. Once you are there there are three very easy keyboard commands you need to know. By hitting the “G” key on your keyboard, a guide will slide out from the left side of the screen. To perform a YouTube search, simply hit the “S” key on your keyboard. If you need to go back to the Home Screen, simply hit the “ESC” key on your keyboard. You can also easily navigate YouTube.com/TV with your mouse (pay special attention to the sidebar on the left side of the screen).

YouTube TV

YouTube.com/TV is also called YouTube Leanback and can also be launched by entering the URL of https://www.youtube.com/leanback. This mode of watching YouTube, which is commonly not known (or is forgotten about), is especially beneficial for those who have the larger computer monitors or have a media center set up on a large screen TV.

File Encryption Software That I Was Unaware Of – Have you ever heard of MEO File Encryption Software? I was unaware it existed and glad that I found it. A free version is available for non-commercial use. If you like it, I found that following the install you can copy the folder where MEO File Encryption is installed to your flash drive and turn it into a portable app. Very nice (and easy) file encryption software with the following features (in the FREE version): Easily encrypt files and folders; Decrypt files that have been encrypted; Encrypt emails and send within MEO; and Create self-extracting encrypted files that can be decrypted without encryption software.

Bet You Never Saw This Before – I have been looking around for a bluetooth capable mouse for my Android tablet and came across a mouse with a bluetooth speaker built into it. It is called the Aerb® Wireless Bluetooth Speaking Mouse . I haven’t decided whether to splurge for this (just to have something different); but, I have never seen anything like it.  A mouse with a speaker built into it is a really neat concept; especially, for a tablet or smartphone.

A FREE, Versatile and Portable Windows Multimedia Player

March 13, 2015

Anytime I can find software that meets my criteria of being multi-purpose; looks good; is available as a portable app; and, is FREE — I will grab it… The Windows multimedia player called CherryPlayer meets that criteria and more. I will definitely be following the development of this player. I threw a number of various audio and video file formats at CherryPlayer and it played them all with success.

CherryPlayer

The beauty of CherryPlayer is that the developers have combined all the features from the best media players with new modern technology. This allows you to listen directly to millions of MP3 song for free, view/download/search YouTube movies inside CherryPlayer, listen to radio or expand your music catalog by purchasing new albums and songs. I especially like the YouTube viewer where you can watch any video that is available on YouTube in a playlist format…

Convert Your Favorite Videos From YouTube, Dailymotion, Vevo, and Clipfish to MP3, MP4 And More…

August 27, 2014

Looking for a way to convert your favorite music videos to MP3? Look no further…  I have been on the hunt for an online YouTube video to MP3 converter and found quite a few; HOWEVER, I finally settled with a FREE service called convert2mp3.net – Online Video Converter. This service is cloud based, which means everything can be done to make the conversion by using your web browser, which means “no software to install”. I think the things that impressed me the most with convert2mp3.net is the built in search component, how fast the conversion takes place and that the end result of the conversion is excellent; PLUS, unlike many of the other services I tried, there are no surprise pop-up ad pages (that looked pretty shady to me).

 

convert2mp3

Search for a video on YouTubeDailymotionVevo or Clipfish and copy & paste the link (URL) of the video in the first box, select the file type and press “convert”. Alternatively you can search for a Youtube video directly. Just enter the video title in the second form and press “search”


Youtify – A Minimalistic Web Music Player

August 25, 2014

A recent post, I featured an online (cloud based) music player, called YouZeek, that streams music from YouTube. After posting this article, I started looking around to see if there were any other online YouTube music players and came across Youtify.

Youtify

It will be a matter of preference on whether to use YouZeek or Youtify. What I found is that YouZeek uses a more featured rich interface; whereas Youtify uses a more minimalistic interface or approach. I sort of liked the idea that I could easily navigate Youtify.

With Youtify you can stream music from YouTube, SoundCloud, and Official.fm… You can easily setup songs to play in a queue or playlist and can go full screen to watch a corresponding YouTube music video. It appears Youtify is designed only to be played from a browser and does not feature interfaces for other app platforms (such as Android and Apple).

About Youtify

Youtify was created by Per Thulin and Karl Tannergård and was launched on May 8, 2011. Youtify works as a skin for YouTube, SoundCloud and Official.fm, allowing for fast and easy search among music from international superstars as well as independent artists. With the integrated support for Flattr microdonations, Youtify has a unique way for fans to support artists.

If you know of any other online (cloud based) YouTube music players, I would be real interested in hearing about it…
