How to on Adding Channels to YouTube

Share this:  

I knew that I could add additional channels to my YouTube account (I’d done it before). But when I went back to do it again, I could not for the life of me figure out how to do it!

I did a search on YouTube and brought up a list of videos on the subject. If I attempted to do what was described, eventually I would get to a place where an option/link shown in the video was not there in real life! Yikes!

Even a video that YouTube had provided on the subject was definitely out-dated. Bummer!

Finally, after searching about I found this link in a YouTube article that took me to the right place. Once you get there, everything becomes perfectly clear and you are good to go!

As would be expected for any method to achieve this, you need to be logged into your YouTube (Google) account first.

By the way the link mentioned above goes to the following URL: https://www.youtube.com/channel_switcher

I bookmarked this page. For me, it was too important to lose track of!

Since I didn’t see any up-to-date How To videos on the subject, I created a short, easy to follow video and uploaded it to YouTube. Here it is below.

Embedding a YouTube Video in a 3D Scene

Share this:  

I wanted to see if I could get a YouTube video to play on a plane inside of a Three.js rendering.

I have ideas for having pop-up short videos as part of interactive displays. We will see when and if I do something with this!

 

And it is possible, I found a  demo on the three.js web site, and built this Pen on CodePen which works nicely!

A Status Report

Share this:  

1 to 1s.
I’ve been doing quite a few 1to1 sessions at the Apple store lately. Mostly on Finalcut Express. I’ve learned quite a bit about it. I recently took a 1to1 on Garage Band. Got that pretty much down. If I want more I will have to migrate to Logic Express or Pro. I think Garage Band will meet my needs for now.

College.
I’ve begun the process of getting my college transcripts to Devry. I plan on finally getting a bachelor’s degree. I want to finish what I started years ago!

YouTube Contest.
I entered a contest on Youtube to win a $300 light-kit. I didn’t win but it was allot of fun and I learned allot in the process.

Day Planner.
I got filler pages for my Franklin day planner. I think I now have the impetus (the fire in my belly) to put the thing to good use. Basically, to keep track of my schedule and the things I want to accomplish.

Anniversary.
The wife and I just celebrated our 6th. Took an extra day off and went to the zoo. Very enjoyable day.

Work.
I’ve been able to be more mentally engaged. Though far from perfect. I am seeing improvement here and it is encouraging.

iPhone Dev.
Went to the July Cocoa-Head users meeting in the Apple store. was okay. Also signed up for the Chicago iPhone Dev Camp that will be in August. I need to devote some more time to this. I need to be spending more time reading through the on-line documentation.

POST UPDATED: Finally, I got my order. Val included some candies in the package as sort of a consolation prize for my order being so late. Hopefully my wife doesn’t get the wrong idea! 😛

Robert Scoble Gives Career Tips

Share this:  

Robert Scoble did a post today addressing what to do if you lost your job in the 2008 recession.  I think allot of these tips are very good. When going over them I thought how many of these could apply even if you still have your job! I mean, it couldn’t hurt to position oneself better career-wise.

The advice about working on one’s blog posting items in their area of expertise. Posting a video a day to You-Tube, again, covering something in their area of expertise. This has set me to thinking about this blog, what I can post here that would be useful, as well has posting one short video a day on You-Tube, again, on some short subject that I really have a handle on.

Just zeroing in on this is a great idea for those of us who still have jobs. I tend to have grand ideas for my web site/blog. I don’t want to throw away those ideas… but I need to think about giving my readers/viewers useful stuff in the near-term that will ultimately better position myself and my career.

So what do you think? Do you have any other ideas?
