If you tend to watch YouTube using the Leanback interface on a home theater PC, you might have to scrounge for an alternative. YouTube is warning visitors to the Leanback web portal that this version “will be going away soon.”
Google announced today on the YouTube blog that anyone with a Google Home or Google Assistant-powered speaker can now listen to ad-free music from YouTube Music.
Currently, there are only around 100 movies that are being offered for free and with ad support. While it’s mostly some forgettable Hollywood movies, there are also blockbuster classics like The Terminator and Rocky.
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).
Starting next week, you might come across more YouTube ads that don’t come with the option to skip to the video you want to watch. The video-sharing website has…
Here’s how you can turn any music YouTube video into an MP3 and save yourself from unnecessary bandwidth waste.
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.
Freemake software can convert multiple YouTube links to MP3 at once. Download full music collections from YouTube with one click. No limits!

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.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.

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.
