In this episode I’ll show you how to find the URL to your own YouTube Playlists in Creator Studio Classic. At the time of recording, Playlists cannot be accessed or shared from YouTube Studio Beta on a desktop browser. I will also show you how to share a playlist with the YouTube Studio iOS App, in which this feature is implemented.
I was looking for another desktop USB microphone for my second desk. Currently I’m using a wonderful Blue Yeti with my Mac on my main desk (or Studio A as we like to call it), and every time I do a screencast or podcast on my Windows workstation (or Studio B as we’d like to call it), I have to bring over the Blue Yeti.
So I discovered the ZAFFIRO Desktop USB Mic, for over $100 less. I thought I’d give it a spin – and I really like it. Here’s what I found after a couple of weeks of working with it.
Last year, in September 2017, I ordered a RUIPU 24,000 mAh Solar Power Bank in preparation for Hurricane Irma here in Florida. I’ve had a whole year’s worth of experience with this gadget and decided to buy another one.
This thing rocks! Let me tell you all about it, and how to use it in this review.
In this episode I’m taking a look at two lapel microphones by ZAFFIRO. They’re both called “Lavalier Lapel Microphone”, and the description is more or less identical on both items – yet there are significant differences between these products.
I bought both of them back in March 2018, and given the sound quality and amount of accessories you get, for less than $20 each, these mics are good bargains for casual users. But no matter how detailed (or vague) their shop descriptions are, and no matter how hip the people in those pictures look, you can only really judge a microphone by what it sounds like.
In this review I’ll tell you all that I’ve learnt in my six months with the ZAFFIRO lapel mics.
In this episode I’m explaining the implications of the new default text editor in WordPress 5.0. It’s called Gutenberg, named after the man who invented the printing press (and hence revolutionised how printed books were duplicated and distributed at the time).
I’ll also show you how to test drive the Gutenberg editor in WordPress 4.9 and earlier, and how to bring back the Classic Editor if Gutenberg is not for you.
I’m not going into details on how to use the new editor, this is just an explanation what Gutenberg means, where the change will happen and how to remedy your WordPress instance if you feel lost with it (like I did when I first tested it last week).Catch this episode on my WP Guru Podcast:
In this episode I’ll show you how to take pictures with built-in and external USB cameras using Photo Booth on macOS. Photo Booth is the equivalent of the Camera application in iOS.
I will also explain how to export your images, where they are stored on the hard disk, and what you can do if the built-in camera gives you an error message.
As I’ve explained in the screencast, if Photo Booth or any other app is giving you grief about there camera “not being available”, you can try to reset the VDCAssistant process on macOS.
To do this, open the Terminal app, then type the following:
sudo killall VDCAssistant
Provide your administrator password when prompted, and without a reboot, Photo Booth should be working as it should. Thanks to Turn It Off And On Again for this tip!Catch this episode on my WP Guru Podcast:
In this screencast I’ll show you how to add images to your GitHub Readme files. You can use the Markdown or HTML syntax for this, I’ll show you both versions. Make sure to upload images to your own repository and provide the relative path to them.
Here’s the syntax:
In Markdown syntax, use the following example to embed an image:
GitHub also supported the HTML syntax, which uses the standard IMG tag. Pasting HTML code in a website is always a little tricky, but let me try:
Should you have spaces in your file names, you can replace them with %20, just like in standard HTML (like “file%20name”).
Now go and make those Readme.md files look handsome!Catch this episode on my WP Guru Podcast:
In this episode I’ll show you four ways of finding your YouTube Channel’s URL. I’ll also explain why there are three types of YouTube Channel URLs, and what the query parameters are that you can append.
Just in case watching videos isn’t your thing, or you’re in a hurry, I thought I’d include some written instructions as well 🙂
In this video I’ll show you how to fix an odd phenomenon I’d like to call “The Occasional White Screen of Death”. Here’s what happened: Continue reading How to fix the “Occasional White Screen of Death” Error in WordPressCatch this episode on my WP Guru Podcast:
