YouTube rolls out new controls aimed at controlling children’s content – TechSpot

Starting today, all content creators will be required to label their videos as either “made for kids” or “not made for kids”. Videos that are labeled “made for kids” will have limited data collection and restrict certain features such as comments and notifications. Targeted ads will also be restricted from running. While creators are required to label videos, YouTube says they will also employ machine learning to find videos aimed at a younger audience.

The company will also be heavily promoting YouTube Kids, a more restricted version of YouTube with content filters and parental controls.

A fresher, less annoying interface to YouTube

This one has been around for at least 7 years… It is called Toogl.es. What you will find is a very stripped down interface that allows you to search for and watch YouTube videos. Toogl.es is great for those home TV setups. The search function is awesome in this application and once you search a topic you can sort the result by relevance, upload date, view count, or rating. Only issue I noticed, which is not a big deal, is that some of the trending categories, when clicked on, do not produce a result.

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.

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.
