Read more on this by clicking on the source link below. The video producers have option to earn more money by allowing the ads to run completely (without the option of skipping after so many seconds).

How To Convert YouTube Music Videos To MP3’s

One of the best ways, I have found, to convert YouTube Music Videos to MP3’s is to use the free software called “Freemake YouTube to MP3 Boom” (see source link below). What I especially like about this software is that all bases are covered. “Freemake YouTube to MP3 Boom” has been developed in such a way that you can perform 3 basic steps within the software itself to get a good end result.

1-Search for Music by going to YouTube and copying the link of the video for MP3 download. Or look for songs or artists inside the app. 2-Preview a Song by clicking “Play” to make sure the track is what you need. You may play music while downloading. 3-Convert YouTube to MP3 by pressing the “Download” arrow or “Download all” to save the MP3 file or the whole collection.

Freemake software can convert multiple YouTube links to MP3 at once. Download full music collections from YouTube with one click. No limits!

How To Watch YouTube In TV Mode On Your Computer

… 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.

It is called the Aerb® Wireless Bluetooth Speaking Mouse .

A FREE, Versatile and Portable Windows Multimedia Player

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…

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

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…

GEEK SQUEAKS – The World’s Favorite PC Optimization Tool To Be Available In The Cloud

As I mentioned, Agomo is in beta and is not currently available to the general public; however, you can sign up for a chance to be a beta tester.

What’s On My PC – Geek Squeaks’ For Your Week

This week we are featuring 7 different ‘squeaks’:  A really nice Windows 8 App that you need to grab; Rumors about an update to Windows 8.1; A tech site that will hit your tech sweet spot; FREE software to remove malware; A video on how to make a phone or tablet stand; A wallpaper for the geek types out there; and, an Acer Ultrabook that is a real powerhouse.

Geek Squeaks’ for the Week is a weekly round-up of tech products, news, software, apps, wallpapers, articles, you name it;  from my favorite tech web sites… I just plain love tech!

#1 – A REALLY NICE WINDOWS 8 APP that gives you the ability to quickly search and download Youtube videos (coverts to MP4) and/or audio (converts to MP3). I tested out this app (called Download YouTube) and found it to do what it claims. I was able to quickly search for YouTube music videos that I was interested in, download them, and convert the audio in the video to MP3. Definitely one of the few Windows 8 Apps that I have on my PC…

Go to the Windows Store on your PC and search for Download YouTube or find out more HERE


#2 – BASED ON A SERIES OF LEAKS there is possibly (already) going to be an update to Windows 8.1…  You got to be kidding???  Microsoft, I do believe, is listening to their user base. Most people, like you at home, were thrown a doctored curveball when you got that new computer and it started up to a bunch of blocks.  Anyhow, PCWorld has a nice article, Windows 8.1 Update 1: Everything we know so far that will help to bring you up to speed. I think the forthcoming changes, if rumored to be true, will get Microsoft back on track for desktop and notebook computer users…

image

With the next update to Windows 8.1, Microsoft really wants mouse-and-keyboard users to feel comfortable with modern apps.

We now have a good sense of what to expect in Windows 8.1 Update 1, thanks to a series of leaks from Win8China and reliable Russian blogger WZor, along with reporting by Paul Thurrott and ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley, two writers with a strong track record for breaking early Windows news.


#3 – THIS WEEK’S RANDOM TECH SITE PICK (with sample article), from Bookmarks4techs.com, is:

This is where Malwarebytes Chameleon comes into play. Malwarebytes Chameleon technologies gets Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed and running when blocked by malicious programs.


#5 – A VIDEO ON HOW TO EASILY MAKE A TABLET OR SMARTPHONE STAND that can be folded up (and actually could be carried with you if made out of an old credit card):

Easily Make A Tablet or Smartphone Stand


#6 – THE WALLPAPER OF THE WEEK is very techie in nature in that it is a pic of the inside of a hard drive. This wallpaper is featured at hdwallpapers and can be downloaded to match the resolution of your screen. I definitely added this on to my collection…

image


#7 – THE TECH PRODUCT OF THE WEEK features the Acer Aspire S7-392-9890 13.3-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook. This is an example of the direction that ultrabooks are heading with powerful processors, solid state drives, long battery life; all in a thin architecture.

An Android App That Feels Like TV

There are various ways to stream video to your android phone or tablet; BUT, there is none that I found that is like 9×9.tv

9x9.tv

From what I can see, based on the reviews at the Google Play Store, 9×9.tv is a relative newcomer to the Android platform. If you are into watching video streamed from the internet, then you need to download this app. The selection is awesome and what is neat about 9×9.tv is that it will continuously play videos. I was especially amazed at how good it looked on my tablet and how smooth the videos played.

Tune in at any time for a personalized bite-sized selection of channels with content that informs and entertains. For example, the “Morning Shows” time slot provides a channel line-up consisting of breaking news and morning talk show channels. “Late Night” on 9×9 features comedy and late night talk shows. So just sit back and let 9×9 entertain you with one episode after another non-stop. Turn on the excitement with every flip as you navigate the channels prepared for you by 9×9’s curators to discover Internet videos you never knew existed. Let 9×9 guide you through a personalized video tour of what matters to you every time you flip it on.

Got more than one Android device ? With one simple tap, beam the video playback from one Android screen to another and use the original Android device as a remote. Great for sharing YouTube and other content on a big screen TV connected to a Google TV. 9×9 app supports Android devices including smartphones, tablets and Google TV.

Once you make a video selection, there is a trick to moving from one video or channel to another (see below).

Believe Nothing and Verify Everything – Golden Eagle Snatches Kid Video

When it comes to computers, information technology, and the internet; I have a motto, “believe nothing and verify everything”. Just because it is on the internet, DO NOT let that lead you to believe that the source is reputable. It is this false sense, that the internet is the brain of the universe that knows all, that get’s us into trouble.

For example, three students that attend a school in Montreal, that specializes in 3-D animation design, recently posted a video (that was made up in product simulation) of what purportedly shows what is described as a Golden Eagle snatching a child in a Montreal park.

This video was so believable that it chalked up over 5 million views on YouTube in one day and at the time I posted this article, the video was nearing the 19 million view mark. I bet these guys who developed the video got an “A+” on this video project

Sync Box, Google Docs, Evernote and More With SocialFolders

If you use Box (online file storage service) and Google Docs, then you are well aware that there is no easy way to sync your online files (and folders) with your computer; UNTIL NOW!

SocialFolders

I came across an online service called SocialFolders where you can sync your files at Box, Google Docs and more (such as Evernote) from one location. You can also transfer files from one service to another and the cool part is that it acts just like any other folder you are accustomed to in Windows explorer. SocialFolders performs the sync tasks in the background while you are working on your computer giving you an automated way of backing up your files (online and offline). – (see video below)

SocialFolders enables you to sync (nerdy word for synchronize) the Windows Explorer with your online accounts: social networks, photo sharing applications, online storage services, etc.

Syncing means that the content of your websites will be updated when you update it in your local folders, and vice-versa.

To get started using Social Folders:

  • Download and Run the install package and follow the instructions.
  • Once SocialFolders is installed, a dialog box will appear inviting you to sign up. Fill in the required information and the application will launch automatically.
  • Right click on the SocialFolders icon in the systray to get started with SocialFolders.

image

  • At this point you can select the services you desire to sync with.

SocialFolders currently supports Facebook, Flickr, Google Docs, Instagram, Photobucket, SmugMug, Box, YouTube, Picasa and Twitter. Appears SkyDrive support may be in the works… From what I can tell, it appears that SocialFolders allows you to sync up to three services with the free version.

Note that YouTube allows only uploads, whereas Instagram allows only download. All the other services work both ways.

A Nice Google Chrome Extension to Convert Any Video from YouTube to High Quality MP4, FLV or MP3 for FREE

One of the rewards to maintaining a tech blog that has a strong emphasis toward reviewing (and testing) FREE software, is when a reader contacts you and points you in the direction of something that is good. The reader in this case, as a result of reading the past article, “Keep An Eye On This: Freemake Music Box” said this:

Today I want to share a free video converter with you. I just found it on CNET. Similar to FreeMake, but it has both windows and mac version.

Here is the product page:

http://www.wontube.com/free-video-converter.html

And their chrome extension is good to. I can convert youtube to mp3 and download youtube clips one click.

Here is the link for chrome extension:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/nlhcllbknkijepekbafagpbniolfcmme

I hope that will be valuable and can help others.

Please keep going on. Thanks again.

If you notice, a couple web links of interest in terms of a video converter (called WonTube) is mentioned, but the one link that I especially was interested in was the link for the Google Chrome Extension (of WonTube).

Before I get into the description of the WonTube Chrome Extension, please note that the first link he reflected is to the Windows and Mac software versions of WonTube.  If you do not use Google Chrome, you may then be interested in the software version [ CLICK HERE ].

The Google Chrome Extension of WonTube is actually something I had been looking for; where I could, “on the fly”, straight from the Google Chrome browser window download YouTube videos and convert them to another video format or convert them to an audio format (such as MP3). By doing this, I do not have to exit the browser window to start up other software on the computer to perform the desired task.

The WonTube Extension, after installed, sort of threw me off due I was looking for a button at the top of the browser. Where the magic works here is when you go to the YouTube site. When you pull up the desired video that you want to work with, you will see two buttons embedded near the YouTube video title (see below for example). One button is labelled “Download Video” and the other button is labelled “Convert to mp3”. Click on your desired choice and you will be redirected to the WonTube conversion site where the conversion will (quickly) take place.  Following the conversion you will have the option to download the converted result.

WonTube Screenshot

To the reader of the blog, who contacted me about WonTube, What’s On My PC, says Thank You…  Nice find!

Top Forty Songs Powered by Twitter and YouTube

I can remember in my teen years we listened to the top forty on the radio and then some years later we became mesmerized with the music videos on cable TV. That was a big thing to us as kids back then… To my younger readers, you are probably thinking I am a hundred years old. Not quite, but you can half that… Today’s post revived some of those memories I had and made me realize just how far we have come in terms of technology.

TopForty.it Yesterday on the blog I featured a FREE Online Utility to Convert YouTube Videos to MP3. During the process of researching and writing that post, I came across another interesting music site, that is powered by Twitter and YouTube, that revived those memories of the top forty and the music videos. It is called Topforty.it where you can become your own DJ.

Simply visit the site, click on the song of your choice to launch the YouTube music video. The music video, with controls, will play at the top of the screen. At that point, you do not have to do anything else.  Just let it ride…

FREE Online Utility to Convert YouTube Videos to MP3

There is so much video content on YouTube these days;  from music videos to comedy to educational videos, etc…, that it is beyond our level of comprehension and imagination. Oftentimes I will bookmark the videos, not so much to watch them, but to listen to the video (e.g. an educational video) while I am working on my computer. This is all fine and dandy when I have the resources to do that; however, there are instances where I wished I could listen to my favorite videos; especially when I am travelling.  It would sure help make the time go by. Let’s face it, watching a video while driving down the road just is not a safe practice.

Well, I came across an online utility that was the answer to my wish.  It is called,  TuneTune.

TuneTune

To use TuneTune: Simply enter the link to the YouTube Video and click on the “Convert” button. During the conversion, which is quite fast, a visual indicator will appear to indicate at what percentage the video has converted. Following the conversion, click on the “Download” button and enjoy.

How to Determine What Videos Are Topping The YouTube Charts?

When I visit YouTube I am often looking for the videos that are topping the charts (most popular). This can be a challenge; however, there is an easy way to see what videos are topping the charts for the day, week, month and even all time.

Simply visit youtube.com, but add the word charts to the web address.  It will look like this in your web browser:

 http://youtube.com/charts

YouTube Charts

Not only can you determine what is popular at the moment for the most viewed videos, you can also determine what is topping the charts for the Most Discussed Videos, the Most Liked, the Most Viewed HD Videos, and the Top Favorited.  Hmmm… Is favorited a word?

[DID YOU KNOW?] Two YouTube Interfaces Optimized for Your TV That Works On Your Computer As Well

YouTube If you are into YouTube, I am sure you are familiar with YouTube’s typical web interface that you access through your desktop computer; BUT, did you know there are two other ways to access YouTube content that is pretty darn attractive?

YouTube XL

 

YouTube Leanback

Both of these interfaces were designed and optimized for viewing on your television; however, with widescreen monitors being very popular, both YouTube XL and YouTube Leanback may be worth considering.

YouTube Movie: First Orbit

YouTube (and Google) continue to raise the bar when it comes to online video content. Typically, it features a repository of short video clips and now they are working toward featuring longer, higher-quality video content on its website. Google, which owns YouTube, plans to invest millions into developing “original content”.

On that note, YouTube is featuring a premiere video (hour-and-half-long) called First Orbit. The video is a real-time recreation of Russian astronaut Yuri Gagarin’s first 108 minutes long orbit of Earth in 1961.

To mark this historic flight YouTube has teamed up with the astronauts onboard the International Space Station to film a new view of what Yuri would have seen as he travelled around the planet.

FREE On-Demand Music, Internet Radio and MORE!

MuziicTake the music world of YouTube and optimize access to that music world using an innovative and user-friendly interface and you have Muziic. This is exactly what a father and son team developed that has not only created a flurry of controversy, but has literally opened up an entire world of music, from top artist, that can be streamed across the internet to your PC (or mobile device). The father and son team describe Muziic as the world’s first YouTube-compliant music video service based on YouTube’s open API.  Muziic launched February 25th, 2009

Muziic is a true multi-platform service that allows you to stream virtually any song or music video on-demand, build custom playlists, tune-in to thousands of internet radio stations and browse high quality music content – anytime, anywhere.

By signing up (for FREE) to Muziic you have option of using their web based web player or you can download the desktop player. In my case, I simply use the web interface.

With Muziic you can load, customize and save playlists that you can revisit anytime from anywhere. You have access to song lyrics, music videos, internet radio stations, albums, artists, and can even do some karaoke.

The really, really cool part of Muziic is the DJ (music deck) interface [HERE] ; that, in my opinion provides the ultimate cloud based music player experience.

Who Said Penguins Cannot Fly

I occasionally come across a YouTube video that just sticks with me and I feel I need to share it with others. This video, a BBC Documentary clip, is about penguins that are so technologically advanced, they have found a way to fly. What is so special about these penguins is that they do not have to huddle together to stay warm.  Watch this amazing video to see these penguins in flight.

A Very Inspirational “Amazing Grace”

This is an off topic blog post, but sometimes those posts can be the best. When I come across something that I feel is phenomenal, I have to shout it out. All of us have listened to or have been exposed to the hymn “Amazing Grace” at one time or another. It is one of the most popular hymns in America and is a hymn that really touches the soul. The history of what inspired the words to “Amazing Grace” is interesting in itself.

According to the Library of Congress;

“Its text, a poem penned in 1772 by John Newton, describes the joy and peace of a soul uplifted from despair to salvation through the gift of grace. Newton’s words are also a vivid autobiographical commentary on how he was spared from both physical and spiritual ruin. It relates the happy ending of the tale of a defiant man who manages again and again to escape danger, disease, abuse, and death, only to revert to “struggles between sin and conscience.”

Recently while browsing YouTube, which I am really not a frequent visitor, a music video of “Amazing Grace” being sang by Il Divo, the popular operatic quartet, caught my attention.  The combination of the hymn and this quartet is phenomenal.  I encourage you to take a moment to listen to and view the video.

Yelling at your computer could be bad…

You can draw your own conclusions with this video; but, the guy in the video is in a data center and he demonstrates how vibrations, generated from yelling can affect hard disk drives…  He mentions “not to try this at home”; at which point I started laughing, because everyone I know yells at their computer.  In the video he is yelling into a JBOD disk array (JBOD – Just a Bunch of Disks).  It also is a good demonstration of how crazy IT guys are : )

“Computer Friends” – [Stack the Memory to the Sky]

Seagate who is worldwide leader in computer hard drive technology recently sponsored a “rap video”, created by two individuals calling themselves the “Sniper Twins”…  The video created by the duo is called “Computers Friends – Stack the Memory to the Sky”.   Now, I am not into rap, but when I see a couple of young up and coming techs rapping in my language, I have to like it.  Note: Best viewed on a broadband (high speed) internet connection.

I want that video…

Have you ever wondered is there a way to download video from some of the top video sites such as YouTube, Google Video, My Space, etc… ? The answer is yes, with VDownloader.

VDownloader is one of the easiest downloaders I have seen; plus it has the capability, with one click of the mouse, to download and convert the video to AVI, MPG, iPOD, PSP, 3GP, VCD, SVCD, DVD, FLV and MP3 (audio only). VDownloader has a built in browser (to browse the video sites) and a built in search engine (to search for videos).  Using VDownloader is a basic 3 step process.
