iMac Getting Slower and Slower – Solution

Another computer problem on a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. This one deals with a Macintosh computer. Here is the question quoted verbatim.

My iMac has been getting slower and slower. How can I clean it up so it runs faster again?

This individual was using Macintosh operating system macOS Mojave 10.14.3. The solution was actually quite simple. You can download and install the free version of Ccleaner.

Perform a “Cleaner” session with that software. You can download and install the free version of Ccleaner. Perform a “Cleaner” session with that software.

Ccleaner supports the following Macintosh operating systems:

  • Macintosh operating system 10.6 Snow Leopard
  • Macintosh operating system 10.7 Lion
  • Macintosh operating system 10.8 Mountain Lion
  • Macintosh operating system 10.9 Mavericks
  • Macintosh operating system 10.10 Yosemite
  • Macintosh operating system 10.11 El Capitan
  • Macintosh operating system 10.12 Sierra
  • Macintosh operating system 10.13 High Sierra
  • Macintosh operating system 10.14 Mojave
  • Macintosh operating system 10.15 Catalina

You will most likely be asked for your Macintosh administrator password when installing Ccleaner. To run a cleaner session, you click on the “Cleaner” tab on the left. Then choose “Run Cleaner”.

The first time you run a Cleaner session, it may take quite awhile. You can be patient and allow the cleaner scan to finish. Also, as an added tip, you can run multiple cleaner sessions until Ccleaner no longer finds any objects or keeps finding the same objects that cannot be removed.

For my computer repair customers I used to run 3 cleaner sessions in a row. If your Macintosh is extremely slow and or you are having difficulties installing Ccleaner, you can boot your Macintosh computer into safe mode. In order to boot into safe mode, you either turn on or restart your Macintosh computer.

Then immediately press and keep holding the Shift key on your Macintosh computer until you see the login window. The term “Safe Boot” should appear in the upper right hand corner of your screen. Now log into your Macintosh computer per usual.

You can then try to install Ccleaner and or run a cleaner session. Macintosh computers are not perfect contrary to what the Macintosh fan boys and girls tell you. Just like many operating systems, Macintosh computers accumulate junk files.

Also known as cache, internet cache, temporary internet files, cookies, etc. You may want to periodically run a Ccleaner cleaner scan as part of your routine Macintosh computer maintenance. This solution has helped quite a few individuals solve their iMac getting slower and slower problem.

These instructions were written for an Apple Macintosh iMac with Macintosh operating system macOS Mojave 10.14.3 installed. However, you could certainly use this solution for other Macintosh computer hardware with other Macintosh operating systems newer then 10.6 Snow Leopard.

upon sea cleaner
02:11
i’ve never ever had a problem with it
02:14
ever and i’ve used it
02:15
well over a decade as a matter of fact
02:17
i’m a ccleaner affiliate
02:22
piriform develop ccleaner
02:25
you can purchase it from me but you do
02:27
not have to but i am telling you up
02:29
front that i’m a ccleaner affiliate
02:32
never had a problem with it even on
02:33
macintosh what you want to do is you
02:36
want to download ccleaner
02:38
and you want to run a cleaning scan
02:41
on macintosh that you don’t need to fuck
02:44
around with any of the settings i don’t
02:46
really
02:46
you know i’m not even going to talk
02:48
about that because you know when it
02:50
comes to certain tools
02:52
you know just accept the defaults you
02:55
can click on the link in the description
02:58
box below of this youtube video that
02:59
will take you to my blog post at my
03:01
website anycomputers.com well
03:03
i will have abstract written
03:06
instructions on how you can
03:07
you know solve this problem but
03:10
fundamentally a ccleaner
03:11
i will include the free link
03:15
and also if you want to purchase it i
03:18
receive a small commission from you
03:20
and i’ve used ccleaner for over a decade
03:24
never had a problem i don’t know these
03:26
youtube technology
03:27
shells they’re like outright liars
03:31
and or somebody’s paying them to
03:34
tell you not to use ccleaner or
03:37
you don’t have to use ccleaner you if
03:40
there’s another tool that you’re more
03:41
comfortable with or you’ve used before
03:44
or maybe you have had a bad experience
03:46
with ccleaner
03:47
then by all means don’t fucking use it
03:50
i’m a real world computer technician and
03:53
this is a very common
03:55
problem and i’ve been you know earning
03:58
supplemental income on this third-party
04:00
website
04:00
whereby i answer computer technology
04:02
related questions for over
04:04
10 years now actually they’ve never
04:07
they haven’t fired me yet and i’ve been
04:09
in
04:10
you know one suggestion is to use
04:12
ccleaner and i’ve never
04:14
had any complaints for management or
04:16
anybody
04:18
so what you’re going to do is all you do
04:20
is install ccleaner on your macintosh
04:22
it’s going to be a dmg
04:23
file it’s you know it’s a small download
04:27
and i will provide the links for you and
04:29
then you install it on your macintosh
04:31
you’re going to
04:32
most likely need to know your
04:35
administrator password
04:37
macintosh computers are they actually
04:39
have i think bsd
04:41
which is a fork of unix they
04:44
there’s a command line
04:48
there’s a account that
04:51
that is basically an administrator
04:53
account that allows you to install
04:55
software on macintosh and so and perform
04:57
some other tasks
04:58
most likely when you go to install
05:00
ccleaner most likely you’ll get prompted
05:04
maybe there’s i’m not aware of but then
05:07
i don’t actually use macintosh
05:09
i have used macintosh computers i just
05:11
don’t have one right now i’m working on
05:12
that i have
05:13
excess capital now because
05:17
i mean the term zoom i just made a zoom
05:20
video yesterday that’s an apropos term
05:22
because
05:22
zoom i mean just the traffic on this
05:25
website is through the roof
05:27
zooming it and anyways i don’t
05:30
digress too much
05:33
anything further now the windows version
05:37
oh
05:38
and what operating system i think
05:42
i will try to include that in my blog
05:43
post i have not written it yet
05:45
i do not record my videos for my
05:47
subscribers
05:48
because really if you’ve studied youtube
05:51
youtube metrics and you
05:53
if you’ve studied youtube heavily you’re
05:56
really not
05:57
going to it’s very
06:00
if you’re going to think that you’re
06:01
going to make a full-time living on
06:03
youtube based upon your subscribers you
06:05
might want to rethink that
06:07
the recidivism rate meaning the
06:09
percentage on average 14 percent
06:12
the the youtube i’m pretty much done i
06:15
just gave you the answer
06:16
so i and you know if you’re offended by
06:19
me
06:19
you know digressing i don’t fucking care
06:22
you can leave now or
06:23
you probably already left 14
06:27
is about i think average recidivism rate
06:29
meaning your subscribers will
06:31
view your videos 14 of your subscribers
06:34
will view a youtube video
06:37
that’s the average but that probably
06:39
could have changed or it has changed my
06:42
i don’t even know what my i don’t
06:43
fucking care but you you got youtube
06:45
content creators that have like a
06:47
million subscribers and all you have to
06:49
do is go and look at the viewer account
06:51
on their videos and go back about a
06:52
month and it’s probably less than one
06:54
percent
06:55
so i don’t make videos for my
06:58
subscribers
06:59
i make videos to help people i i’m a
07:02
real world computer technician
07:05
and i work every day and i help solve
07:08
computer problems
07:09
and then i share that information with
07:11
you
07:12
that’s it you don’t have to buy anything
07:15
from me you don’t
07:16
you you know if you may want to get the
07:18
pro
07:19
version because it has an automatic
07:21
updater and blah blah but you certainly
07:23
don’t have to
07:24
and you don’t have to jank around with
07:26
any of the settings
07:27
just go in and i’ll try to provide deep
07:30
more detailed instructions in my blog
07:31
post
07:32
i don’t i’m using linux to record this
07:36
video
07:37
this computer dual boots it has windows
07:40
7.
07:41
now i’m not going to boot into windows 7
07:43
so i can fire up ccleaner
07:44
and then even a lot of times with
07:46
software the graphical user
07:48
user interface might be different on
07:50
operating systems so
07:52
if on on windows if you’re using
07:54
ccleaner somebody will tell you we’ll
07:56
just click here click there and then run
07:58
a cleaning session
07:59
well but they’re using a macintosh
08:01
computer they
08:02
they on their mac they follow the
08:05
instructions and they’re just like
08:07
where well or that well i don’t see that
08:09
button or well you’re
08:10
allowed well goddammit and you’re a liar
08:12
you’re you’re lying to your audience
08:15
you know one of those people so but i
08:18
will try to provide detailed
08:19
instructions i might even be nice
08:22
and philanthropic to a point and provide
08:25
if i don’t write full instructions i
08:28
will provide a link
08:29
with yeah i’m pretty sure there’s a page
08:32
where
08:32
it’ll show you how to use ccleaner on a
08:34
macintosh because the instructions might
08:36
be different because i just told you
08:38
but on windows you can run a registry
08:41
scan
08:42
but on mac you don’t need to worry about
08:44
that this is
08:46
most times a high percentage
08:49
when i get a a client that has has a
08:52
slow macintosh computer this
08:54
is exactly what i tell them and a lot of
08:56
times they never respond back
08:58
once in a while they’ll say well that
08:59
didn’t really work or well it’s still
09:02
slow oh here’s a bonus added tip
09:04
it depends on now macintosh
09:08
they don’t have a registry like windows
09:11
so you don’t need to worry about that i
09:13
don’t want to digress i don’t want to
09:14
make this video too long i’ll try to
09:16
keep it what to 15 minutes
09:18
and i gotta i have about five or six
09:20
minutes maybe a little bit over time but
09:22
i don’t want to make this video too long
09:23
i try to keep my videos i
09:24
honestly to 15 minutes and then but i
09:27
have a big fucking mouth and so
09:29
on macintosh the there is no registry
09:33
however
09:35
just like any computer even linux
09:38
operating systems will accumulate files
09:42
that’s just web especially web browsers
09:45
web browser especially web browsers
09:48
and it really doesn’t matter what
09:49
operating system they have temp files
09:52
they have cache files
09:54
linux my my computer with the that has
09:57
mx linux that i’m looking at right now
09:59
well you know it’s kind of like right
10:00
there but
10:02
it has cache it it caches files
10:07
on windows and mac that can cause a
10:10
problem
10:10
temp files cache files also known as
10:13
cookies and temporary internet
10:15
files and like you’ll download a plugin
10:19
or you’ll you’ll download
10:20
you know software whatever it
10:22
accumulates
10:24
and over time if your computer
10:27
and the operating system
10:30
does not clean those files up they’re
10:33
gonna still be on the hard drive
10:35
and believe it or not that can cause
10:37
problems
10:38
it can especially cause web browsing
10:41
problems your web browser will start to
10:43
fuck up or slow down
10:45
or just get flaky or you can’t log into
10:49
your email anymore or just all
10:51
i could just make a separate video you
10:53
know like a five hour
10:55
video just on that it can also affect
10:58
your overall operating system
11:00
believe it or not and so tools like
11:03
ccleaner
11:04
are very effective they really are even
11:06
on a macintosh
11:08
now here let me give you some other
11:10
additional tips
11:12
the safe mode if your mac
11:16
is really slow like they’re slow
11:19
and then there’s
11:23
really slow and then there’s very slow
11:26
and then there’s extremely slow
11:29
so there could be different you could
11:31
even time it how long does it take your
11:33
macintosh to boot up
11:36
you know five minutes let’s say you can
11:38
get a cup of coffee
11:40
30 minutes you could cheat on your
11:42
spouse with your
11:44
mistress well isn’t that what americans
11:47
do well it wasn’t that that
11:49
what that ashleymadison.com
11:53
you know was about and anyways
11:58
if it’s really slow and it takes too
12:01
a long time to even boot up and get into
12:03
the login window and finally log in
12:06
by by you may want to try this first
12:10
it’s up to you i’m trying to think of
12:12
ways to save you time
12:14
the scan will take a long time even on
12:17
a slow macintosh but a macintosh that
12:20
boots up you know a couple minutes
12:22
logs in and things seem to be okay but
12:24
then all of a sudden
12:26
you’re surfing the internet or you’re
12:28
you know
12:29
opening up a program zoom or adobe or
12:32
whatever you’re doing
12:33
and then oh and then here comes the
12:34
molasses
12:37
the tortoise
12:42
the tortoise versus the hare all of a
12:45
sudden your macintosh
12:46
is becoming a comedian and
12:49
it it’s involved in a race but it’s the
12:53
tortoise it’s not the hair
12:55
no it’s just you know okay let’s see
12:58
one step at a time and well i kind of
13:01
speak
13:02
soft i kind of speak slowly anyways and
13:05
well you know what i kind of got an itch
13:07
here and
13:08
well you know i’m going to take a break
13:11
now and get some sun
13:12
and well you know maybe next week i’ll
13:15
cross the finish line
13:16
and you know well yeah you know i’m a
13:19
tortoise
13:21
i’m a macintosh i mean
13:26
even on macs like that that
13:29
you know relatively seem to respond okay
13:34
it still can take a long time so this is
13:36
my warning
13:39
be patient download ccleaner
13:42
and just let it run you might want to
13:44
just go you know
13:46
jump in your vehicle and get some sun or
13:48
go for a walk or whatever oh fuck the
13:50
government
13:51
fuck what the government says actually
13:54
and i don’t want to digress about that
13:56
oh i might get my youtube channel
13:58
terminated
13:59
for dare talk about that and criticizing
14:02
that
14:03
you know this alleged pandemic i mean
14:05
come on
14:10
just be patient allow it to finish it
14:12
could take a while it also depends on
14:15
how much accumulation on your macintosh
14:19
it it might be months it might be years
14:22
since the last time you cleaned up your
14:23
cash your internet cash your internet
14:25
cookies your cash
14:26
your temp files that could be billions
14:30
i’m not making this shit up well we’re
14:32
really like gigabytes oh yes i’m not
14:33
making that up
14:34
see cleaner i don’t know what my record
14:37
is
14:38
i’m trying to remember i think i lost
14:40
count now
14:41
five gigs i don’t know that i think that
14:42
was on a windows computer whatever
14:44
whatever
14:45
that’s just bragging rights
14:51
it can take a while and then the first
14:52
scan that i’ve noticed that was ccleaner
14:55
the first time i’m at almost a 15 minute
14:57
mark so i gotta
14:58
you know run here the first time it will
15:01
take a while because
15:03
even on windows well windows it has goes
15:05
through the entire registry
15:07
if you run the register scan but even on
15:08
windows and mac it’s got to go through
15:10
the file system for the first
15:12
time so that could be why it takes a
15:14
while
15:15
and then i’ve noticed with ccleaner if
15:16
you run it regularly
15:18
it’s not as slow so just be patient on
15:22
the first scan
15:23
on on mac i usually only
15:26
i’ll give you an added bonus tip i run c
15:30
cleaner even on a mac until it no longer
15:33
finds
15:34
any objects or it may find a few objects
15:37
but they’re the the same ones
15:39
they’re the exact same ones and for a
15:41
reason it can’t remove them
15:43
but then if you update ccleaner it might
15:45
find them and then remove them but
15:48
something like okay so
15:51
this is an added bonus tip will see
15:53
cleaner
15:55
run it until it no longer finds any
15:57
objects
15:59
two or three times i notice it seems to
16:01
work better that way
16:02
and then also if you have a really slow
16:04
macintosh
16:07
boot it into safe mode first and i will
16:10
try to include the instructions i think
16:12
it’s
16:12
what is it you hold down you either
16:15
power off your macintosh and then hold
16:17
down the control key
16:19
while while you hit the power button or
16:23
you do a restart and hold down the
16:25
control key
16:26
or something like that i will haven’t
16:28
i’ll try to remember to put those
16:29
instructions
16:30
there too that’s another tip when in
16:32
doubt our mat
16:33
mcintosh does have a safe mode
16:36
it it will i don’t want to get too into
16:39
too many details basically
16:41
certain features certain drivers will
16:43
not you know
16:45
boot up or be functional it hence the
16:48
term
16:48
safe mode then you know install ccleaner
16:52
and then run a clean scan
16:53
you might have to do that on a really
16:56
slow and i just had a customer
16:58
i i would say one at least once a week
17:00
this is this is my
17:02
solution to a slow macintosh it was
17:05
probably
17:06

How to Install Zoom

I have been receiving this question quite a bit recently because of the alleged health pandemic, that I will not mention, on a third party website where by I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. How to install Zoom, you ask? The installation of Zoom video conferencing software, is really not that difficult.

Basically, it is a three step process. You can download and then install the Zoom video conferencing software onto your computer. Then you register for a free Zoom account.

You can download the Zoom application from their website. That link should automatically detect your operating system and supply a download link at the top of that web page. You will want to click on the “Download” link button.

If that link does not work and is grayed out so to speak, then your operating system was not exactly properly detected. You can look for a drop down menu above that download link button with your correct operating system. Now you install the Zoom video conferencing software onto your computer.

Then you will want to sign up for a free Zoom account. Once you have the Zoom video conferencing software installed and created a Zoom account, you can begin hosting meetings. Please follow these instructions to host a meeting with Zoom.

Open your Zoom desktop application. You will be required to log into your Zoom account. Click the download arrow.

Select “Start with video”. Now choose “New Meeting”. You have just started a new meeting.

For now you will be required to register a free Zoom account in order to join and or host your own meetings. Zoom, actually supports Apple Macintosh, Microsoft Windows, and Linux operating systems. Also, Zoom video conferencing software can be installed on Apple iPhone and iPad.

Google Android smartphones are also supported. Zoom has created two web browser extensions for the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers. These browser plugins help facilitate the start or scheduling of meetings from within your web browser.

install Zulu basically it’s a three-step
00:11
process number one you want to download
00:15
and install the software zoom supports
00:18
Micro crap micro Micro slop wind
00:23
blows operating system Windows 7 Windows
00:25
10 also Apple Macintosh and even Linux
00:29
then you’re going to want to register
00:32
for a free account if you want to become
00:34
a host if you want to host meetings you
00:36
must have at the very least a free basic
00:39
account they have a pro version of
00:41
enterprise but I’m not going to digress
00:43
about that then the third step is to
00:46
then if you’re gonna be a host if you’re
00:49
gonna host meetings you’re gonna have to
00:50
know how to host meetings right so let’s
00:52
cut to the chase you can click on the
00:57
link in the description box below that
00:59
it’ll take you to my website in a
01:00
computer’s comm or you can read in the
01:03
abstract full instructions on how to
01:05
install zoom so first you want to click
01:09
on this link that I included it’s a
01:12
direct link to zooms website download
01:14
the zoom application it should
01:17
automatically detect your operating
01:20
system if it does not like on my
01:22
computer I’m using a debian derivation
01:27
Linux distribution called MX Linux if
01:30
for whatever reason on your computer the
01:32
exact operating system is not detected
01:34
then you would click on this drop down
01:36
list and then choose the app or posts
01:42
operating system but it should detect
01:47
your operating system I would say on
01:49
Windows and Mac more or likely you know
01:52
that it should correctly detect your
01:55
operating system but there is a
01:56
drop-down just in case then download it
01:59
to your computer on Microsoft Windows it
02:02
will be an executable dot exe or might
02:05
you know might be set up dot exe install
02:07
a tech co whatever it’s gonna be an
02:09
executable double-click it
02:11
follow the prompts install zoom client
02:17
desktop software on Macintosh most
02:20
likely it will be a dmg file download it
02:25
double-click it or right-click open it
02:27
follow the prompts install zoom on your
02:30
Macintosh computer that’s the first step
02:37
now once again
02:40
caveat emptor if you’re just gonna be an
02:43
attendee you’re not wanting to host
02:45
meeting somebody emails you a link to a
02:48
zoom meeting or however they communicate
02:52
over chat over you know snail mail over
02:58
you know what SOS or you know whatever
03:01
however you get the link then you do not
03:06
need to register with a free account if
03:10
you’re going to host meetings and invite
03:13
other attendees then you must have at
03:16
the very least a free account this is
03:19
the second link I included in my blog
03:21
post up in my website
03:22
Enoch appears calm free zoom account
03:25
this will take you directly to the
03:27
signup page now this could change in the
03:29
future for now it wants you to verify I
03:32
think this is for robots I could be
03:34
wrong but this is easily circumvented
03:36
you can basically select whatever you
03:38
want though I don’t know if there’s a
03:39
late age limit maybe there is an age
03:41
limit to I just don’t know but quickly
03:43
as an example we’re just gonna choose
03:45
you know January and then we’ll pick the
03:48
fifth and then I’m very young now and I
03:53
must it must be the veganism I’m saying
03:57
all right then click continue this data
04:00
will not be stored well I don’t know
04:02
that and we know anyways now it’s going
04:05
to act now as a real-world computer
04:08
technician that works everyday I don’t
04:11
work eight hours everyday but I work a
04:13
few hours a day as a real-world computer
04:16
technician dealing with real-world
04:18
computer problems one problem is
04:22
email accounts and access so here’s my
04:27
tip choose an email address that you
04:32
know that you have access to they you
04:34
you may want to choose an email address
04:36
that you’ve used for many years decades
04:38
or whatever then you have access to that
04:40
you get email on a regular basis that
04:43
again that you have access to your gonna
04:49
most likely be sent an email to activate
04:51
your free zoom account I don’t know I
04:54
don’t have a free zoom account I don’t
04:56
plan on to save my internet footprint I
05:00
don’t want that many accounts anymore
05:02
I just do not know but I’m not suing and
05:04
then also that will be your login email
05:07
address that you use to log into your
05:10
free zoom account so that you can host
05:11
meetings then you would just click on
05:14
signup there’s there’s also reCAPTCHA is
05:18
that Google reCAPTCHA it looks like you
05:21
might have to follow the Google
05:24
reCAPTCHA or whatever now that that is
05:27
my I don’t give out orders I’m basically
05:29
on arcus but that is a tip of mind when
05:33
it comes to a lot of websites I know you
05:36
can sign in with third parties which
05:37
I’ll get to but that is my tip is as a
05:40
real world computer technician I’ve
05:42
noticed less problem no no they’re not
05:43
perfect you could always get the h-word
05:46
somebody could circumvent your account
05:48
lock you out you could forget your email
05:52
address the login you could forget your
05:53
password but fundamentally a lot of
05:56
times when you use third parties to sign
05:58
into websites that that’s another
05:59
problem another layer that could cause
06:02
another problem but that is another
06:04
option another option is you could sign
06:05
in with SSO you could sign in with a
06:07
Google account including Gmail and you
06:10
can also sign in with Facebook that’s it
06:13
so once you sign up for free for zoom
06:16
and you activate it or you respond to
06:20
the email and then you’re able to log in
06:22
correctly now you can host so you’ve
06:26
downloaded the software you got the free
06:28
account so that you can host meetings if
06:31
that is what your you know reason for
06:35
you
06:36
zooom the third and final step is then
06:40
to host meetings this is where you can
06:45
click on the link in the description box
06:46
below down in the youtube video
06:48
description box that will take you to my
06:51
blog post at my website in a computer’s
06:53
comm where i included full instructions
06:56
on how to host a meeting for the desktop
06:58
the desktop software i will there might
07:01
be a little bit over time but i dont
07:03
want to digress
07:04
the instructions for using the
07:08
application on iOS or android might be
07:11
different you know and even operating
07:13
system the graphical user interfaces
07:17
might be different on linux mac and wind
07:23
blows excuse me Windows Microsoft
07:25
Windows but the instructions are written
07:28
in one way they don’t mention the
07:30
differences in operating system so I’m
07:31
assuming the graphical user interface is
07:35
similar or the same you know I’m saying
07:38
okay so what you do to host a meeting is
07:40
obviously you’re going to open up the
07:44
zoom and I don’t really need to screen
07:47
capture the website anymore obviously
07:49
you’re gonna want to open up the zoom
07:51
software on the desk either on Microsoft
07:53
Windows operating system Apple Macintosh
07:56
or Linux then once you open it up you’re
07:59
you you’re required to sign in you have
08:02
to sign in order to host meetings at the
08:04
very least with a free account I don’t
08:05
know of any way around that so you know
08:08
I’m saying then what you’re going to do
08:11
is then click there’s a down arrow click
08:17
on the download arrow there’s a download
08:19
arrow click on it and then choose start
08:23
with video now choose new meeting so
08:28
you’re gonna create a new meeting that
08:29
that’s it that’s how you create a new
08:31
meeting that’s it so look for the down
08:34
load arrow click on it then choose start
08:37
with video if you’re if you’re you know
08:40
wanting to I’m assuming you’re wanting
08:41
to create a video meeting and then
08:43
choose new meeting and that’s it and now
08:47
you just started a new meeting I don’t
08:49
know I don’t I haven’t installed
08:51
software I may make an additional Linux
08:54
video showing you how to install zoom on
08:55
Linux I don’t know yet there could be
08:59
other options I think I know on the home
09:02
page that there’s that’s another place
09:04
you can go to the home page and click on
09:06
new meeting and then it’ll print if you
09:10
don’t have the software installed it’ll
09:11
prompt you to install software if it’s
09:13
installing your computer I think it’ll
09:15
it’ll open it up from the their website
09:20
on their home page I think you can
09:22
choose a video only meeting an audio
09:24
only meeting and I think the third
09:26
option but anyways now how about a
09:28
little bit over time let me I try to I’m
09:31
at the nine and a half minute mark I try
09:32
to keep my videos down in fifteen
09:34
minutes but I have a big mouth
09:35
and I can talk all day and a lot of
09:38
times I over you know extend myself but
09:42
so so far I’m under control you know
09:45
alright over time
09:53
zooom also supports the Google Android
09:57
operating system so most Android you’ll
09:59
be able to install the zoom application
10:01
from the Google Play Store Apple iOS is
10:06
supported I’m assuming I don’t know for
10:07
a fact but most likely possibly probably
10:11
you’ll be able to install zoom client
10:14
software on an iPhone and iPad then you
10:20
would need a user of free at the very
10:23
least a free user account so that you
10:26
can host meetings if you just want to
10:28
participate you can skip the second two
10:31
steps all you need is the software
10:33
either on Microsoft Windows Apple
10:36
Macintosh or Linux Google Android Apple
10:41
iPhone Apple iPad and then you can join
10:43
meetings and you and then you can
10:45
participate to host you must have at
10:48
least a free account and then you must
10:51
then you know learn how to host so that
10:57
those are the three steps and I included
11:00
a little bit of over time about they
11:06
support dumb devices I mean smart phones
11:10
then in closing there’s they also have I
11:14
don’t know why they made them but they
11:16
have two extensions browser extensions
11:19
for Google Chrome and also Mozilla
11:23
Firefox basically alls it does is help
11:26
facilitate starting meetings and
11:29
scheduling yeah you can either start a
11:32
new meeting you what you would be in
11:34
Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox and
11:36
then you would click on the extension or
11:38
there might be a button at the top I
11:40
don’t know I haven’t installed it yet
11:41
but you could either start a new zoom
11:44
meeting or schedule a meeting from
11:47
within your web browser I don’t know why
11:48
they have that I’m not a big fan of
11:51
extensions but that’s also accessible
11:57
you know you can download the extensions
12:00
anything further about zoom maybe let’s
12:04
see I’m at the 12 minute mark
12:05
anything on top of my head I can think
12:07
of that I didn’t include they had some
12:10
other like programs that you can control
12:14
zoom fron or website I didn’t even do
12:18
you even read up on upon that I didn’t
12:20
go into that I just wanted to make this
12:22
video too because because of the current
12:25
alleged health crisis which I’m very
12:29
skeptical about which I’m not going to
12:31
discuss oh if I did and I criticized
12:33
that probably get censored off a
12:35
you know YouTube
12:36
anyways I see this quite frequently now
12:41
that people are either working from home
12:43
or they’re excused from their
12:46
brainwashing in the public schools I
12:49
mean they’re not in school and so they
12:52
got a lot of spare time and I yeah zoom
12:55
pun intended that’s an app riposte word
12:58
zooms business I think is zooming right
13:01
now because I see it on this three-part
13:03
website where I answer real world
13:06
computer support questions you know what
13:09
I’m saying
13:10
computer and Technology questions and I
13:13
see this quite prevalent people you know
13:15
how do I install zoom well you know blah
13:18
blah how do i schedule meeting you know
13:20
blah blah blah what’s the differences
13:21
between the free and the new account
13:23
level kick how do i you know schedule a
13:26
meeting in advance a bubble I’ll give
13:28
you a few bonus added pieces of
13:31
information that I know but real quickly
13:33
because I don’t want to make this video
13:34
much beyond 15 minutes let’s see on
13:39
their website they’ve got a web page
13:43
describing the differences between the
13:45
free and the premium and the enterprise
13:47
the free account is restricted 40
13:51
minutes and now I think it’s unlimited
13:53
meetings but each meeting can only last
13:56
40 minutes you can only I think invite a
14:00
hundred attendees and that’s only for
14:03
one hosting account you can’t with the
14:06
same zoom account you can’t have
14:09
multiple hosts what are the restrictions
14:12
you can’t schedule in advance I don’t
14:15
think with the free account you know I’m
14:17
saying
14:18
and then on
14:19
website you go to zoom dot us and you
14:22
can actually start meetings from there
14:24
you can as a host what else do I know
14:27
some additional overtime information
14:30
that may be productive I think that’s
14:33
basically about it that should be enough
14:36
do you for you to get started you know
14:39
it’s really easy you know just three
14:42
steps man the that link I gave you is
14:45
very valuable because one of the first
14:48
questions on the survey website that I
14:51
actually dealt with zoom was well one
14:54
was you know how do I log in I’m locked
14:57
out another one which I think that’ll be
14:59
a future video another one the second
15:01
one or whatever another one was at the
15:03
very beginning was how do I install zoom
15:06
they went through and they couldn’t find
15:09
the link or didn’t work
15:11
I found the link that will automatically
15:14
detect your operating system and then it
15:17
will so that will be my gold tip if you
15:20
have any problems downloading installing
15:22
it should automatically detect your
15:24
operating system the link I gave you
15:26
that’s in my blog post link down below
15:29
in the description box if not there’s a
15:32
drop down menu you know and there will
15:35
be a download button the button will not
15:37
work it will kind of be grayed out so to
15:39
speak if it did not automatically detect
15:41
your operating system on Windows and
15:43
Macintosh and Linux there could be a
15:46
drop down I know on Linux throw us a
15:47
drop down menu try to pick the exact
15:50
operating system because it can make a
15:51
big difference you know I’m saying there
15:53
for whatever reason it doesn’t
15:54
automatically detect your operating
15:55
system then there could be a drop-down
15:58
menu and then try it to choose your
16:01
exact operating system and then boom
16:03
download it boom run the installer boom
16:06
if you want to become a host create the
16:09
free account you know I’m saying and
16:13
then learn how to host not that
16:15
difficult quite easy and then if you’re
16:18
just wanting to attend meetings that’s
16:21
all you want to do you don’t want to
16:22
become a host you can skip the last two
16:25
steps just download software install it
16:28
open it up just click click click click
16:31
learn the
16:32
you know and then or click on the
16:36
invitation and bam you should be rolling
16:39
on Zoom and I think their
16:43
business is zooming right about now I
16:45
don’t see as many yeah Skype yeah I
16:50
don’t wanted to digress about
16:52
yeah I hate Skype I’ll be honest I’ve
16:54
never actually you will have it I think
16:56
I might have used soom once on Linux
16:58
did I I think I may actually have but
17:01
not as a host it wasn’t that but yeah on
17:04
this website I would say how many how
17:10
many problems do I see come soon versus
17:15
Skype I would say it’s like 50/50 right
17:18
now I don’t know what the market share
17:19
is adios

Close Yahoo Email Account Permanently

I finally got around to closing my Yahoo free email account. I have been planning on getting rid of this account for years now. Free email accounts have their advantages and disadvantages.

Also, I am removing my Internet footprint so to speak. It may be productive for you to learn how to host your own email service. You can obtain a virtual private server and host your own email.

There are paid for email service providers. However, I do not necessarily trust them. Anyways, now I am going to discuss how to close Yahoo email account permanently.

At one time you could delete your Yahoo email account via somewhere in your profile and or account settings. When I went to close Yahoo email account permanently, I could not find where to perform this action. It could be buried somewhere in a menu that I did not find.

You can close Yahoo email account permanently now. You will need to login in or already be logged into your Yahoo email account. You will be presented with a lengthy warning page.

If you scroll down to the very bottom of this page, you will see a “Continue delete my account” button. You will be sent to another web page, where you have to type in your Yahoo email address. A “Yes terminate this account” blue button will be visible.

Once you click on that button, you will see a page notifying you that your account has been scheduled for deletion. Your Yahoo account now actually has been deactivated. There is a 30, 90, or 180 day grace period depending on what country you reside in.

This grace period allows you to reactivate your Yahoo email account. I tested this feature, and you are sent a code to your recovery email address associated with your Yahoo email account. Once you enter in this recovery code, you are then required to change your Yahoo email password.

Once you change your Yahoo email password successfully, then you can log into your Yahoo email account. There are some other stipulations that you might want to read over, before you close Yahoo email account permanently.

stas our own Tony de aina Kabir Khan
00:04
motivator Potter to you or I’m gonna
00:05
finally remove my yahoo email account
00:09
that I wanted to remove now for yours I
00:12
just finally got around to it alright so
00:14
let’s cut to the chase I’ll give you a
00:17
couple of gold tips at the beginning of
00:19
the video make certain though when you
00:23
do delete your yahoo email account that
00:25
you take it serious and then here’s my
00:28
first gold tip according to my studies
00:31
when you delete your yahoo email account
00:33
after the grace period
00:34
you do get a grace period to see the 30
00:36
90 or 180 days depending on which
00:38
country you reside in after that grace
00:42
period is permanent however the second
00:45
person that comes along and uses that
00:48
same email address let’s as an example
00:51
government sucks at yahoo.com govern
00:54
mint sucks at yahoo.com if you use that
01:01
email address for recovery purposes like
01:05
to log in to your dumb device your cell
01:10
phone or your Android or whatever or
01:12
your iPhone or you used it to recover
01:14
your Apple identification or you used it
01:16
as a recovery for your banking website
01:20
information anything a face book
01:22
whatever it is what’s been happening is
01:25
that and you didn’t change your email
01:28
address and you still any tried to
01:30
recover that information the second
01:33
person that comes along would receive
01:35
your email messages and possibly get
01:37
into those websites did you know that
01:41
all right
01:42
my second gold tip is that you might
01:46
want to take it more serious if you’re
01:48
using your yahoo email for important
01:51
information make sure that you’re not
01:55
using it for recovery purposes for any
01:57
websites if you are go login to those
02:01
websites whether it’s a banking website
02:03
Facebook of social engineering I mean
02:06
social brainwashing I mean
02:10
any other website change it change it to
02:14
a different email address that you have
02:17
access to or change it to use a phone
02:19
number instead or whatever because if
02:22
you delete your yahoo email account and
02:25
then you forgot to change your recovery
02:27
address for let’s say a banking website
02:30
and then you forget your password or
02:32
somebody sort of convinced it and locks
02:34
you out and then you can’t get back in
02:37
because you don’t have access to your
02:38
Yahoo government sucks at yahoo.com
02:41
recovery email you might be fucked so
02:45
that that’s my second gold tip alright
02:46
so let’s cut to the chase
02:48
now you might also want to go through
02:50
the account and just delete all the
02:53
folders clean it up backup your email
02:56
messages backup your folders
02:59
I might make a second video showing you
03:00
how to use Thunderbird two to easily
03:04
backup your e-mail from yahoo it there’s
03:08
a little there’s some technical details
03:10
you have to go through a bit it’s really
03:11
not that difficult
03:12
I might make that video I mean I just
03:14
don’t know click on the link in the
03:15
description box below that will take you
03:17
to my blog post on my website and it
03:18
covers com where I will include a direct
03:20
link to where you deactivate your
03:23
account
03:24
I think they removed it at one time it
03:26
was hidden you have to go through all
03:27
these menus either the account settings
03:29
or the privacy settings and then you to
03:32
finally stumble upon you know how do I
03:34
delete my or delete yahoo account I
03:36
think they removed it from everywhere
03:38
now well I couldn’t find it I went
03:40
everywhere I found the direct link so I
03:44
will include that and I will also
03:46
include a link to this help file that
03:49
gives you some tips and some additional
03:50
information I haven’t written with the
03:52
blog post yet but I don’t I might write
03:54
it now or you know sometime in the next
03:58
decade alright so quickly quickly I’m
04:04
not going to read verbatim that will get
04:05
you account terminated from YouTube all
04:09
right quickly so basically you want to
04:12
make sure that you don’t have
04:14
outstanding debt if you if the only
04:17
money you gotta pay that off first with
04:20
your yahoo account if you have any
04:22
subscriptions or maybe you have Yahoo
04:24
Mail Pro also it might be a good idea to
04:27
account you want to cancel any
04:29
subscriptions that you have with you
04:30
yahoo account counsel your yahoo mail
04:33
pro now that might be a different
04:35
process I’m not sure if if you did have
04:38
a yahoo mail pro would you use the same
04:40
link I just do not know that because I
04:42
do not own a yahoo mail pro my point is
04:44
that you there are certain restrictions
04:48
here so now also caveat emptor you’re no
04:52
longer gonna have your emails you’re not
04:54
going to have your folders you’re not
04:55
going to have your Flickr photos you’re
04:58
not going to have your calendar items
04:59
you’re not gonna have your Yahoo fantasy
05:01
garbage and your finance powerful all
05:04
that all the stock market just tanked
05:07
all of that couldn’t have been by design
05:08
do you really think what do you think
05:11
all this is going on in society you
05:12
think it’s all an accident to me it’s
05:14
all by design yeah anyways
05:23
there is it the – there’s a tool to
05:27
download the data but it’s not really
05:29
like a tool that will download it to you
05:31
to your desktop or I tried it and all’s
05:34
it does is it it’s part of my video that
05:36
I might make it helps you set up your
05:39
Thunderbird so that you can access your
05:42
yahoo mail and then I I know of a really
05:44
quick technique so and I’m not going to
05:47
discuss that further because you’re
05:48
gonna have to watch that video if I ever
05:49
record it you can download your Flickr
05:57
photos now I already went over the
06:01
account balance you cannot have a
06:04
outstanding balance here’s the yahoo
06:07
account terminate page which I’m going
06:09
to browse to and then you have a 30 day
06:14
grace period in most countries except
06:17
for Australia India or New Zealand you
06:19
have a 90 day grace period Brazil Hong
06:22
Kong or Taiwan you have a 180 day grace
06:25
period what that means is that if you
06:27
change your mind and you need access to
06:29
your yahoo email account you will have
06:32
either 30 90 or 180 days to log back in
06:35
now quickly did I let me go over what I
06:38
had to do because these are some
06:40
additional tips I had to I I tested it
06:43
out just a few minutes ago what happens
06:45
is that when you try to log into that
06:46
government sucks at yahoo.com email
06:50
account it does not allow you to type in
06:54
a password it automatically sends a code
06:56
to your recovery email address for your
07:00
yahoo account
07:01
I received the code I typed it in and
07:03
then it prompted me to change my
07:06
password I set a new password I was able
07:10
to log in and then so that feature works
07:13
you have 30 days or 90 days or 180 days
07:17
if you change your fucking mind
07:19
as the government brainwashes your mind
07:22
I mean massages your mind your goddamn
07:28
right error and we do
07:31
all right so are anything else
07:37
yeah it you have to verify your recovery
07:41
information which was a code that’s
07:43
that’s how I was able to log back in
07:46
okay so now let me because you should
07:49
always tread cautiously there’s assholes
07:52
and bitches on on YouTube and they will
07:55
all yeah they’ll come after you they’ll
07:57
find one piece of information all of a
07:59
sudden you can’t log into a website or
08:00
like that one YouTube content creator
08:03
which I will not name was swatted on a
08:05
live stream he was just helping people I
08:09
think he was helping people you know put
08:13
a computer together it’s not now you
08:14
don’t build anything that term build a
08:17
computer now you’re putting it together
08:18
anyways yeah he was on a live stream and
08:21
all of a sudden gots water if you don’t
08:22
know what that term means look it up it
08:27
was disgusting alright
08:32
all right now I’m clicking on the yahoo
08:35
account termination page and I just want
08:37
to make sure that there is no and I
08:40
already see it here’s a bonus at a tip
08:43
that is not necessarily dealing with how
08:45
to close your yahoo email account I’m at
08:48
the 8 minute what 49 50 51 second and I
08:51
try to keep my videos to 15 minutes or
08:53
less is that I can’t talk about it
08:57
because Yahoo excuse me YouTube there
09:00
are fascists or crooked there are
09:01
communists there are sensors they don’t
09:03
like they don’t allow free speech on
09:06
their platform there’s a term that H
09:08
word the computer security circumvention
09:14
circumvention there’s a concept called
09:18
social engineering you don’t want
09:22
anybody to obtain any information about
09:25
you because all it takes is one piece of
09:28
information and they can possibly
09:32
circumvent your social engineering I
09:36
mean social networking website you’re a
09:38
bank account you know business account
09:43
login or I’m not making that shit up so
09:46
you should always be cautious of what
09:49
you
09:52
disseminate into the Internet I am
09:59
looking at the sign-in page
10:01
[Music]
10:03
however I clicked on the termination so
10:05
let me try it again oh you know what I
10:08
have to
10:08
oh it makes me sign in I was signed in
10:11
and then all okay I changed my password
10:13
because I tested the reactivation and it
10:17
didn’t keep me inside it so let me sign
10:18
in really quick
10:28
okay I’m it’s signing in and now I want
10:31
now I want to make sure there’s nothing
10:34
here okay it’s all good I’ll show you
10:36
this page now you’re gonna see this page
10:39
so you have to log into your yahoo
10:40
account well duh in order to determine
10:42
it you’re gonna see this page before
10:45
continuing blah blah blah
10:47
yahoo flickr gives you some warnings
10:49
okay there’s billing blah blah blah okay
10:53
now this is what I like to see there is
10:55
a continue delete my account this is
10:57
awesome I have I’ve been waiting for
10:59
this day for a long time I am reducing
11:01
my social footprint on the Internet you
11:06
know I’m saying I’m trying to get rid of
11:08
as many accounts as I can I you know
11:10
what I might just say fuck it and you’ll
11:13
never hear me again you’ll never watch
11:15
another video because I just unplugged
11:17
my computer from the internet I mean
11:19
just fuck it just quit you know just
11:22
quit using the computers quit using the
11:23
internet because all it does is just
11:25
cause problems
11:26
I mean hurry so I’m not going to screen
11:28
capture this because I actually went
11:30
through this process before and it shows
11:32
information that I don’t want anybody to
11:35
see
11:36
you have to type your email message
11:38
excuse me you have to type in your email
11:41
account again so that’s what I’m doing
11:43
here
11:44
and then it’s got a blue button that
11:46
says he has to terminate this account
11:49
but I do not want you to know a certain
11:52
piece of information because I’m a
11:53
real-world computer technician and there
11:56
ain’t not now
11:57
there will be no swatting me fuck you
12:02
motherfuckers if you ever thought that
12:04
you could fucking SWAT me and knock and
12:07
get away with it back the fuck up before
12:10
you get smacked the fuck up because
12:12
that’s not how I roll man all right so
12:19
now I’m gonna click on the yes terminate
12:21
this account it’s thinking all right now
12:25
I can show you this screen and my
12:29
anarchist symbol I mean your account has
12:35
been deactivated and scheduled for
12:38
deletion you no longer have access to
12:40
this account which will be deleted from
12:41
our database got it yes sir I got it you
12:45
got it on and then I don’t think there’s
12:49
anything else but you just never know
12:52
I’m gonna click on the blue got it and
12:54
then where do you want to go to there on
12:57
it just took me back to the Yahoo
12:59
homepage
12:59
all right so we’re pretty much probably
13:02
done with screen capturing I have a few
13:04
minutes left I have two minutes left so
13:05
quickly I gave you a gold tip at the
13:09
beginning about warning you about using
13:13
Yahoo has a recovery apparatus because
13:15
the set the next person that comes along
13:17
to use that same email address
13:19
government sucks at yahoo.com which I
13:23
hope somebody does pick that hopefully
13:25
it’s already taken and hopefully their
13:28
anarchist art is that dot buyer beware
13:32
here here’s an additional tip I don’t
13:35
give our orders get it on anarchist I’m
13:38
against Authority if you’re offended by
13:39
that fuck you get off my youtube channel
13:41
all right
13:44
you may not want to use the free email
13:47
services for important information I
13:51
would not use it not no I don’t give out
13:54
orders it’s it’s fundamentally up to you
13:56
it’s your choice it’s your decision I’m
13:58
giving you some tips as a real-world
14:00
computer technician all day every day I
14:03
could probably make ace an itch career
14:10
out of just accounts all day every day
14:13
on a third-party website which I will
14:15
never reference it ever people get
14:20
locked out of Facebook they get locked
14:22
out of their PayPal account they get
14:24
locked out of their a o L account they
14:27
get locked out of yahoo email account
14:29
they get locked out of gmail account
14:31
they get locked out of hotmail account
14:32
they get locked out of their Microsoft
14:35
account they can’t log in to the
14:36
computer because they’re locked out of
14:38
their Microsoft account they can’t
14:41
access their iPad or iPhone or their
14:45
Macintosh because they’re locked out
14:47
because they don’t know their Apple
14:48
identification
14:53
you know what I’m saying
14:55
if you use Yahoo or any other free email
14:59
service as your recovery option you know
15:03
all where you say oh I forgot my
15:04
password okay we’ll send you an email to
15:06
government sucks at yahoo.com and then
15:09
we got a link for you or we got a code
15:11
for you just type in the code or click
15:13
on the link
15:17
well I’ll get it get it there’s a lot of
15:22
shenanigans going on on the Internet I
15:24
could literally just make a living doing
15:25
that all day I choose not to because I
15:28
don’t know what the success rates are if
15:32
basically if you don’t know your
15:34
password you’re pretty much fun and
15:37
especially if you do not know your
15:38
security request answers to your
15:41
security questions or you do not you
15:43
forgot your ID these people forget their
15:45
email ids or they forget the email
15:48
address or they don’t have access to the
15:50
email address or oh my god they don’t
15:53
have access to the same phone anymore
15:55
they changed phone providers or they
15:57
change their phone number all it just
16:00
goes on all day all day every day it’s
16:02
just like oh fuck man no wonder why I’m
16:04
fucking mentally ill
16:08
oh my god I’m over over the overtime
16:10
period shit well no this is overtime now
16:13
that’s right I gotta run I got like I
16:16
usually try to keep my videos down to 15
16:18
minutes
16:18
I still gotta upload this motherfucker
16:20
alright any other tips
16:24
I gave you that gold one I’ll not go
16:25
over that again what was another one
16:28
since I’m a real-world compare
16:29
technician I used to
16:33
refused to answer well I used to refuse
16:35
to work on those types of because I knew
16:37
the success rate was very low
16:40
this website which I’m not no I’m not
16:42
getting details they change the way we
16:44
are compensated and now as long as I try
16:47
to help the person as much as possible
16:48
most times I get paid for it so now it
16:51
is Padilla Cheryl irresponsible for me
16:54
to help people with their login problems
16:57
are you for you know I worked on this
17:00
website for a decade now off and on and
17:03
back in the day when I first started I
17:06
would help people but I quickly learned
17:07
that the success rate is very low
17:11
a lot of times it’s just mental midgets
17:14
or just however but now over the last
17:17
decade there I could be paranoia I don’t
17:21
believe all the stories sometimes I
17:23
wonder if they’re trying to get me to
17:25
help so that they can circumvent
17:27
somebody else’s account I’m that’s
17:30
another reason why I used to never help
17:32
people because I was like how could it
17:34
be and you’ll get these sob stories like
17:36
well my my wife just died and I need to
17:40
get into their bank account and like
17:43
borrow well how do I know you’re you
17:45
know telling the truth I’m not gonna
17:48
know I’m not gonna knowingly help a
17:50
fuckin crook alright but any other tips
17:54
when it comes to
17:58
this this should be a warning because I
18:01
everyday I see people just they can’t
18:05
login and I’m like well done just I
18:10
would learn try to learn how to host
18:13
your own email
18:16
try to host your own email there are you
18:19
can buy paying email services that are
18:23
not connected to the free email service
18:25
providers but I wouldn’t trust those
18:27
either
18:28
you just don’t know anymore nowadays oh
18:30
I mean all day long people are getting
18:33
locked out of Facebook for no reason
18:35
they’re getting locked out of PayPal for
18:38
no reason they’re getting locked out of
18:41
Gmail and Yahoo and hotmail
18:44
and their Microsoft account their Apple
18:46
identification for no reason and I you
18:49
know why I believe them I’m not gonna
18:51
tell you what bank just a last week I
18:55
had a bank account for decades decades
18:59
and they just closed my bank account for
19:03
no reason I was not no no no I was not
19:06
overdrawn III very rarely used that’s my
19:09
suspicion is I very rarely used that
19:12
bank account and I only really used it
19:14
for like one or two transactions one
19:16
there was one specific bill that I had
19:19
set to auto pay and alls I did was be
19:21
money as soon as I received the
19:26
that that payment went through our that
19:28
that that this company was dead
19:33
and then as soon as I received the email
19:35
from that
19:37
was
19:41
I wouldn’t immediately transfer money
19:45
last
19:46
we herewith never had a problem last
19:49
week outside
19:55
all of a sudden
19:56
I noticed that I didn’t get my
20:05
then I
20:14
every website that I thought was
20:15
important
20:20
and I thought
20:23
and I changed
20:25
recovery information where I
20:27
double-checked
20:29
everyone said it was important
20:36
as we covered
20:40
have access to that recovery
20:58
so yeah
21:02
I’ll count that I’ve had
21:13
he’s trying time that one might get
21:15
close to I think I can be wrong I think
21:18
and stationed in this
21:24
notorious for closing
21:30
and all of a sudden I was able to log in
21:32
but it but I I saw this big pop up
21:36
account closed
21:39
and then I saw the last transaction it
21:42
said closeout or whatever I was like
21:44
but now like I said before I
21:47
is that Bank flight before
21:49
a couple of specific you know purposes
21:52
but I was
21:54
don’t close that account anyways so
21:56
actually actually they helped me down
21:59
and I see you know some money per month
22:03
never charged me so that that’s the
22:05
fundamental
22:13
as the recovery scores
22:16
yeah
22:20
all right so that is how you terminate
22:23
your
22:25
and I might make the second
22:27
showing you how
22:31
mostly
22:35
why they don’t even remember their fuck
22:38
or that idea what that shit off
22:40
well here’s a bonus tip on being a
22:43
pillar traffic
22:46
why right give out free information when
22:49
all you motherfuckers on
22:50
you want everything for free or you can
22:52
play all that’s right I disable my
22:53
comments
22:56
yeah what your videos are too long here
22:59
I’m gonna cut to the chase yeah I get it
23:04
here’s another
23:06
this is only exclusively with job
23:11
because I make money on that one every
23:12
day
23:13
there is a contact form
23:19
if you cannot
23:23
access your yahoo email account
23:26
you know obviously you want to
23:28
use their forgot password’ tool
23:31
got your ID they have a forgot ID tool
23:33
and
23:34
if you forgot your email
23:36
for that go through all that if you
23:38
still cannot access your email or
23:41
have access it
23:44
access to them
24:02
another tip I don’t know why I just
24:08
why oh that’s right cuz I know
24:14
by not getting any mosquitoes we’re
24:16
gonna have
24:21
you can check to a young
24:27
and chat to them and
24:29
I tried him
24:31
nice looking

Linux SoundConverter – Program Missing 16 kHz Sample Rate Fix

I recently was working on another project where by a program called Pocket Sphinx required sound files recorded in 16 kHz sample rate. My preferred Linux sound converter application at this time is most apropos called SoundConverter. This free and open source Linux SoundConverter program does not have 16 kHz available as a re-sample rate.

One possible solution was to use dconf editor to add the 16 kHz sample rate to this Linux SoundConverter program. However, I could not find any entries under /org for this program. I looked in all the available configuration files using dconf editor to no avail.

I decided to then search for this Linux SoundConverter program files by typing in the following command:

whereis soundconverter

This was the output from that Linux command:

whereis soundconverter
soundconverter: /usr/bin/soundconverter /usr/share/soundconverter /usr/share/man/man1/soundconverter.1.gz

I browsed to the /usr/share/soundconverter directory using this command:

cd /usr/share/soundconverter

I then listed all the files and folders in this directory by performing this command:

ls -al

Here is the output of the ls -al command:

ls -al
total 316
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Mar 12 01:02 .
drwxr-xr-x 332 root root 12288 Mar 12 21:49 ..
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Mar 12 00:36 python
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 135178 Mar 12 01:02 soundconverter.glade
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 24707 Sep 30 2018 soundconverter-logo.svg

You will want to notice the soundconverter.glade file. In Linux, all files including folders are basically files. What this means is that you can easily open them up in a text editor like vi.

VI is and has been my preferred command line editor in Linux for decades now. You do not have to use VI editor to edit this file. However, the command to edit the soundconverter.glade file is below:

vi soundconverter.glade

You will need to become root user as you will notice both user and group permissions for the soundconverter.glade file are owned by root. Glade files are actually eXtensible Markup Language files. Generally XML files are easily accessible with a standard text editor.

You may want to create a backup of this Linux SoundConverter program file just to become safe. I have incorporated the habit of always creating a backup file of any Linux files I edit, in case I make a mistake. It is certainly up to you to incorporate this possible safety measure or not.

You will notice in this soundconverter.glade file an array with these numbers:

  <column type="gchararray"/>
</columns>
<data>
  <row>
    <col id="0">8000</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">11025</col>
  </row>
    <row>
    <col id="0">22050</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">44100</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">48000</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">72000</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">96000</col>
  </row>
  <row>
    <col id="0">128000</col>
  </row>
</data>

You can open up SoundConverter. Then click on “Preferences”. Now look below under “Target bitrate: N/A”.

Place a check in the check box next to “Resample” drop down list. You will notice that 16000 and 32000 for that matter are missing. Now you want to create a new array for 16 kHZ which would be 16000 numerically.

Insert a new line and array using your editor of choice. You will want to enter in the following array:

<row><col id=”0″>16000</col></row>

This will create a new entry in that re-sample drown down list with 16000. Also, you can add any other re-sample rates that you might need, for example 32000. Now you can go into SoundConverter and select 16000 Hz.

Linux SoundConverter – Program Missing 16 kHz Sample Rate Fix Video Transcript

SJS Ronco need a in a computer comm or a
00:05
video about our day always working on a
00:08
project recently whereby I needed to
00:12
convert an audio file there is a free
00:17
Linux software program called
00:23
sound converter hence the term that
00:27
converts sound I’m saying however I
00:31
needed to convert sound into sixteen
00:35
thousand Hertz or sixteen small K large
00:41
H small Z and this program as you can
00:45
see on screen and I will show you I will
00:48
demonstrate does not have when you go
00:53
into preferences and then you’re going
00:56
to convert the file this project
01:03
requires that the file be and sixteen
01:05
thousand Hertz you know what I’m saying
01:09
16 kilohertz whatever now you go down
01:14
here there is sample rate and it’s
01:16
missing so you could you could cheat you
01:18
could convert it to eight thousand
01:21
eleven thousand twenty-five twenty two
01:23
thousand fifty forty four one hundred
01:25
forty eight hundred excuse me forty
01:28
eight thousand seventy two thousand
01:29
ninety six thousand one twenty eight
01:30
thousand so that’s a conundrum well I
01:34
went to the drawing board which is the
01:39
internet if you do not know something if
01:44
you’re ignorant or if you’re running or
01:46
problems internet search internet search
01:48
unless you’re like a you know programmer
01:51
and you’re a coder and you’re like oh
01:53
okay well I’ll just you know go to the
01:55
code alright
02:00
one solution was to use D conf editor
02:04
and let me find it D yep so let me open
02:10
it up and I’ll show you what deep
02:11
competitors really quickly so you’re
02:13
gonna get this warning you can you know
02:16
uncheck it but you know whatever so just
02:19
click I’ll be careful
02:21
now get D Kampf editor it is obviously
02:25
this is Linux and I haven’t titled the
02:27
video yet but well you actually my blog
02:29
post I already yeah Linux is in the blog
02:34
post title which will be the same title
02:36
of this video it just allows you to edit
02:41
certain application files now if you
02:46
notice you see apps see a desktop org it
02:49
was supposed to be under org but there
02:51
is nothing here as you can see there is
02:53
no sound converter there is blue man
02:56
free desktop known gtk on board X I went
02:59
through all these every single one every
03:02
subdirectory could not find a decomp
03:09
edible file so my predicament continued
03:15
then and then I was like well you know
03:18
what
03:18
I am NOT program but I am proficient
03:22
enough that I can use command line you
03:24
should definitely learn how to use
03:25
command line VI Emacs whatever the
03:29
it takes you know I’m saying on Linux
03:31
cuz you’re gonna run into problems Linux
03:33
is not perfect I know you have the
03:35
fanboys just like the wind
03:37
blows fan boys and girls in the Mac and
03:41
crap fan boys and girls Linux tards or
03:44
whatever the you want to call them
03:45
they claim Linux is the best thing since
03:47
you know the wheel and it’s like well
03:52
you know it’s not perfect now I’ve used
03:54
Linux for close to 20 years now maybe I
03:58
think the first time I actually ever use
04:00
Linux was in the mid-90s actually but I
04:03
kind of abandoned it until the early
04:06
2008 ways I digress
04:10
command line so what what I found was
04:13
that there is a Glade file glade GL ad
04:16
now this isn’t a dumbshit capitalistic
04:19
whorish stupid commercial for a
04:22
Glade the that goddamn you know
04:26
do you authorize or wear that
04:28
you spraying in the air
04:30
no Glade is actually an XML file type if
04:34
you know what XML is it’s edible very
04:39
easily edible okay so here is the
04:43
solution click on the link in the
04:45
description box below that will take you
04:46
to my blog post on my website unit
04:48
computers comm where I have the
04:49
instructions written in the abstract I
04:52
have all commands written out spelled
04:56
correctly
04:57
you know I have full instructions on how
05:00
to fix sound converter you’re gonna add
05:05
a entry into the program you’re actually
05:10
going to change the code you’re gonna
05:12
learn how to program a little bit you
05:14
know I’m saying you’re gonna add an
05:16
array is what you’re doing and then
05:20
you’ll be able to choose sixteen
05:21
thousand but I have full detail written
05:26
you know typed out instructions because
05:27
some people learn better that way or you
05:31
can also copy and paste the commands
05:32
alright so what we’re gonna do is we’re
05:34
gonna go to a command line
05:37
let me see if there’s anything I don’t
05:40
necessarily you always should be
05:41
security conscious you know what I’m
05:43
saying especially nowadays all right so
05:46
we’re at a Linux command line now the
05:48
first thing i typed in was where is
05:53
sound converter remember and I haven’t
05:58
do I have instructions on now now I
06:00
don’t think I had any instructions on
06:02
how to install Linux
06:03
Wow sound converter I mean I might’ve
06:05
but anyways so where is sound converter
06:11
there we go where is you might want to
06:14
learn where is that’s an excellent
06:17
command on Linux and UNIX actually it’ll
06:21
tell you it will even tell you where
06:23
configuration files are at it will tell
06:26
you where a program is at because in
06:29
linux everything is a sickly a file
06:31
everything even folders are editable you
06:34
know i’m saying so i want to use or
06:37
share so CD is change directory and then
06:42
I’m gonna go to / user / share / sound
06:45
converter it’s free Linux sound
06:49
converter program it’s excellent it’s
06:51
not about you know it doesn’t have every
06:53
Bell and whistle but you don’t need all
06:54
that notice I don’t now then you do an
06:58
LS – al now here’s a tip you do not have
07:01
to take this tip but it’s highly
07:03
recommended whenever I learned decades
07:06
ago on Linux because I was
07:08
around with config files and what I did
07:11
was I edited the original configuration
07:13
file and then I think it had to do with
07:15
networking and I had to reinstall Linux
07:18
cuz I over wrote it so here’s a bonus
07:21
added possible gold tip when it comes to
07:24
Linux and I would dare say any operating
07:29
system Mac and crap wind blows when
07:32
you’re editing system files any files
07:35
program configuration files create a
07:40
copy if you notice here I created sound
07:43
converter Glade bak you can name it
07:46
whatever you want a lot of times I name
07:49
them back or got save
07:51
back or just something you know I prefer
07:53
dot back because that tells me it’s a
07:55
backup but it whatever you want to you
07:59
know I’m saying and then you would you
08:01
would just do a CP you would do CP and
08:06
then the name of the file and then the
08:09
firt and then the second would be the
08:13
the destination so you’re gonna copy the
08:17
source sound converter dot Glade and
08:20
then space here copy sound converter
08:25
whoops I need to learn how to
08:28
goddamn type dot laid and whoops
08:32
and then sound converter dot blade blade
08:39
blade yeah I’m trying to
08:43
type too fast
08:44
I’m R I’m already getting bored with
08:46
this video I’m very honest I’m very
08:48
blunt if you’re offended by that I don’t
08:49
care you can kick rocks and go
08:51
somewhere else so that’s what you would
08:54
type to copy aren’t quickly now we’re
08:56
gonna edit on Linux there’s a default
08:58
editor command line on speaking command
09:02
line whatever it takes even if you have
09:04
to use you know a graphical user
09:06
interface but you should really probably
09:08
learn how to use command line and Linux
09:11
because when it comes to fixing issues
09:12
most times you’re gonna have to fix it
09:15
in a command line you’re I’m Sam so VI
09:17
has been around for decades actually
09:20
probably ever since Linux was first
09:23
developed and I’ve never used any other
09:25
editor I tried Emacs and I did not like
09:28
that you do not have to use VI my
09:30
blogpost with instructions I use VI that
09:35
certainly if you are more comfortable
09:36
with Emacs or there’s a VI m there which
09:40
is a more graphical VI version I think
09:43
just whatever it takes you know I’m
09:45
saying so you’re gonna do you’re gonna
09:47
open the file with the editor in Linux
09:50
you can just highlight and then middle
09:52
mouse click and then paste windows you
09:55
cannot do that mac and crap I don’t
09:57
think you can do that but I could be
09:59
wrong what Linux you just highlight
10:03
and then middle-click and bam it pastes
10:07
you don’t have to you know control-c
10:08
control-v or you don’t have to
10:10
right-click and select copy that you
10:13
know what I’m saying all right so we’re
10:15
gonna go into this file I already
10:17
created a backup and then we’re gonna
10:19
add an additional array so I have to I
10:22
think if I search slash in VI the four
10:25
slash is what you use to search and then
10:28
you type in after the slash what you’re
10:30
searching for so I think I’m gonna type
10:32
in eleven zero two five and it should
10:34
find that array here it is so and and
10:37
you want to make sure that you’re you
10:40
know got the correct code if you’re if
10:43
you this is how I learn to fix problems
10:46
and Linux I learn VI and then I learn to
10:50
look for configuration or files or study
10:53
errors PHP errors you can use an
10:57
internet search and then you know I’m
10:59
saying then if you are proficient enough
11:01
with the command line and an editor then
11:04
you can actually fix problems on your
11:06
own so you just have to be aware if you
11:09
if you’ve never been familiar with an
11:11
array of any type you know you can study
11:16
on your own look it up on the internet
11:18
you what you could do is probably in
11:21
type into a internet search gch array or
11:26
just an array it’s pretty
11:28
self-explanatory you know I’m saying so
11:31
what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna add an
11:33
array so I’m gonna place it right here
11:35
and so in VI you want to hit oh the
11:41
letter O to create another line and then
11:45
and it’s already going to insert but you
11:48
could escape and then type I to insert
11:50
so we’re gonna insert another row whoops
11:55
okay so I have to escape and then insert
11:59
all right so now okay so right here and
12:03
then you don’t have to but I’ve learned
12:06
that it’s probably a it’s productive to
12:10
keep your code clean however you want it
12:12
just because in case you have to go back
12:15
I think that most programmers probably
12:19
that’s why it’s coated in a certain way
12:21
you know I’m saying it’s up to you but
12:25
Linux spaces are ignored however once in
12:30
a while they can cause a problem that I
12:32
don’t want to digress about that so
12:34
we’re gonna create a row so Row is just
12:38
in the two brackets tells the operating
12:43
system to create a row a new row and
12:47
then we’re gonna add another column so
12:49
I’ll open tick and then column ID equals
12:54
and then you know zero and then in
12:59
parenthesis and then closing tick
13:02
16-thousand and then / the / tells it to
13:07
close that column and then we have to
13:10
add another entry here we have to close
13:13
the role you have to close these
13:15
variables I guess or I’m not a
13:17
programmer so that’s probably wrong
13:19
Burbage but it’s similar to HTML you got
13:24
a you got the opening and you got the
13:27
closing and you have to close with the
13:32
slash before you know what I’m saying
13:34
otherwise it’s not gonna look right now
13:39
I added it accidentally added an
13:40
additional row in VI you just type DD
13:43
twice or yeah two DS for delete and
13:48
they’re gone all right so then I’m gonna
13:51
escape again and then in VI editor to
13:54
save you type the parenthesis
13:57
excuse me the colon the colon you see
14:00
the colon now where the green cursor is
14:03
at and then WQ small a lot of times in
14:07
Linux it’s case sensitive so become
14:09
aware of that and VI it is there’s
14:11
there’s when you when you use VI and you
14:13
tell you type in a capital W you’re
14:16
telling it something different than a
14:18
lowercase W so W Q for write and then
14:22
quit or you wait another thing you could
14:25
do is you could just write
14:27
exclamation point exclamation point
14:29
tells it to write right now Lord Emma at
14:33
our own I knew this guard down program
14:35
fixed by tonight Aaron pronto movie
14:39
Laurent you could hit then hit enter and
14:44
bam it tells you right here sound career
14:47
Glade 26 50 lines blah blah blah blah 13
14:50
135 178 characters written as long as it
14:53
says written if it’s a if you get some
14:56
some permissions if its permissions
14:59
it’ll type it’ll respond in red telling
15:02
you that it wasn’t written or if you
15:06
didn’t type those characters correctly
15:07
you’ll get an error well I’m gonna write
15:10
quit so : BB small W small Q exclamation
15:15
point right now bitch
15:17
alright BAM it’s out now you what you
15:20
can do is when you learn is you can
15:23
double check you can double check your
15:24
work sometimes I still have to do that
15:27
and then forward slash and then 16000
15:30
BAM it’s there and that’s the only place
15:33
I had to place it you’re only adding one
15:36
array and a column and then it’s gonna
15:39
show up in that drop-down menu now I’m
15:44
gonna go to the program I probably have
15:45
to close it I could try but I doubt it
15:48
now go to the resample under the and I
15:52
have full instructions telling you you
15:55
know place a checkmark where every
15:57
sample is so that you can see the
15:59
drop-down full instructions you know I’m
16:02
saying and then click the drop down
16:04
arrow it’s not available because this
16:06
isn’t real time programs aren’t that
16:08
smart yet they probably never will be
16:11
but I well I could be wrong about that
16:12
so I’m gonna have to close sound
16:14
converter and I can show you my blog
16:16
post this is the blog post and let’s see
16:20
I gotta run I gotta run oh my god I’m at
16:22
16 minutes I gotta run I usually have a
16:23
15 minute you know quota 15 minute time
16:27
limit alright so a full blog post you
16:30
know blah blah where’s command and then
16:33
the output how do
16:36
where what folder to go the command LS –
16:38
a LCD to change directory LS the list
16:42
and then what the output should be I did
16:46
not include the copy instructions and
16:48
then VI to open the XML file Glade is
16:53
actually an extensible markup language
16:55
file it’s just a different type of XML
16:59
file but it is technically XML and then
17:01
the array that I noticed and then we
17:03
added a new row in the array we add in
17:07
an additional you know column or item or
17:10
whatever you want to call it in the
17:12
array and then now I’m gonna show you
17:15
let me transition real quick now let me
17:17
open sound converter free program open
17:21
source if I could find it that’s
17:25
what a search box is for think
17:29
dog computers are smarter than me
17:30
alright so now I have the program open
17:35
and there it is now we’re gonna go up to
17:37
preferences and then go down to the
17:39
resample and then hit the drop down and
17:42
there it is sixteen thousand see we
17:46
learn how to program we learn how to add
17:48
an array and which is a row and then a
17:51
column in the drop down array now you
17:54
would click close and then boom now with
17:58
my project I am ready to roll so that is
18:03
how you fix sixteen thousand you know
18:09
whatever 16 kilohertz missing from the
18:13
resample rate I’m not sure why sound
18:16
convertor didn’t include it 16,000 and I
18:20
would say 32 are probably standard but
18:23
eleven thousand 25 that’s it that’s a
18:26
common one actually I anyways I don’t
18:29
want to digress because I’m over my time
18:31
limit and then certainly if you need
18:34
32,000 you could you could add it in
18:37
there rate so you learn something and
18:39
that’s how with that’s kind of one
18:41
reason why I like Linux but but you know
18:44
caveat emptor linux is not like mac and
18:47
well mac and cry
18:48
does actually have bsd unix in it wind
18:52
blows I think wind blows might now have
18:55
some Linux in it or some I don’t
18:58
whatever Windows 10 it that could be
19:01
wrong about that whatever that is how I
19:06
learn back in the day so get comfortable
19:08
with VI you can fix your own issues if
19:12
you know if it’s otherwise you what you
19:16
would have had to have done is what find
19:19
another converter tool that has the
19:22
16,000 or 16 kilohertz available so in
19:27
closing my project which I probably
19:30
won’t get in well I’m still working on
19:32
it here I’ll just tell you what
19:34
the it is I’m trying to create
19:39
automated transcriptions of my videos
19:43
now not for the my YouTube channel did
19:48
you know that YouTube has an automatic
19:50
transcription every time you as a
19:52
YouTube content creator every time you
19:55
upload a video it automatically creates
19:57
it unless can you disable it yeah no no
19:59
anyways but I think by default it
20:01
creates a closed caption or a
20:04
transcription of your video if not
20:08
perfect I think it uses AI or unaware of
20:11
the or some kind of dictionary it’s
20:13
not perfect it’s not bad but it’s
20:16
certainly not perfect you know and
20:19
transcribing is much better obviously
20:21
however you have to pay money for that
20:23
now I’m not gonna tell you what website
20:26
but oh that’s right I was censored off
20:30
of YouTube because I had a different
20:32
YouTube channel where i spoke about
20:33
activism you know capitalism is stupid
20:37
it’s a control mechanism the
20:39
government’s out of control especially
20:41
recently with this fear-mongering with
20:43
this bullcrap
20:43
you know virus that anyways I don’t want
20:45
oh oh oh I better not talk about that I
20:48
better not criticize the system for that
20:50
because oh I’ll get my YouTube account
20:52
terminated tomorrow at midnight by Susan
20:54
Wojcicki and the rest of the crew here
20:56
I’m saying so I have a activism website
21:00
and I and I record videos however that
21:03
platform well I have to they do not
21:06
include a transcription of the video and
21:09
some of my videos are very likely even
21:11
this video that’s way too long now 21
21:13
minutes and Counting you know trying to
21:16
sit there transcribe it I don’t
21:18
have that time or you’d have to pay
21:20
somebody and some of the prices are like
21:23
you know pert they charge you per
21:24
letter or per word or
21:29
prefer sentence it’s like Jesus
21:33
Christ I’m already living in poverty as
21:36
a computer technician and you’re just
21:38
gonna bend me over further and sodomized
21:41
you me because I would just want a
21:43
goddamn transcription now I think maybe
21:47
decades down the road it’ll be much
21:50
better there’s some open there’s paid
21:52
services you can get paid software
21:55
that’s actually maybe maybe I don’t know
21:58
about the best but one of the decent
22:00
ones might be what it let me know any
22:05
good let me search it real quick I
22:07
support this once in a while but not as
22:09
much anymore Dre what is it
22:11
dragon naturallyspeaking is that what
22:14
it’s called yeah that one I heard yeah
22:19
Dragon NaturallySpeaking I still support
22:21
that one is by nuance yeah it’s a new
22:24
nuisance I mean it’s a nuance all right
22:25
and but that I think it I think it
22:30
requires Windows and it cost money so
22:33
I’m trying to find an open source I had
22:35
I was trying to install what is a CMU
22:39
Sphynx or pocket Sphinx which is
22:42
actually an automated transcription
22:45
recorder automated transcription
22:48
recorder what that would do is it would
22:52
open the video fault well it would
22:54
probably would have to be audio say get
22:56
it I had to take a video file convert it
22:59
to audio and then run it through the
23:02
transcriber however I ran into the
23:05
roadblock which was the the resample
23:09
rate when I converted the audio it had
23:13
being 16 kilohertz then I was like oh
23:18
and then as soon as I you know fixed it
23:21
in the program I reconverted that file
23:23
BAM
23:24
it no longer error but yeah I wanted
23:27
address about that I abandoned see Pacus
23:30
Sphynx because i couldn’t get it to work
23:34
yeah you have to have a dictionary you
23:38
got to have libraries and it’s just like
23:40
I just want a transcription of
23:46
my big mouth
23:48
adios

ONN Optical Mouse – Video Transcript

00:00

stas at ronconi day in a kabir comic for

00:05

video but our dear boy a mouse I was up

00:08

at Walmart in my location there’s not

00:12

much there’s not much selection and when

00:18

it comes to like electronics or computer

00:20

there is no micro center store so I was

00:22

there for an HDMI cable then it maybe

00:25

I’ll make a video about a lot of times

00:27

even if I buy small items if it’s

00:30

something new I’ll make a video I

00:32

generally don’t mind buying new products

00:34

especially computer expensive electron

00:36

taha you can go oh Craigslist and get

00:37

all kinds of stuff why the fuck would

00:40

you ever buy anything new but I was at

00:43

the Walmart and I noticed that they had

00:46

onn mice went in is a Walmart brand

00:51

I think it’s exclusive to their stores

00:54

and a lot of the items are manufactured

00:56

in China

00:57

I like their USB flash drives this

01:01

laptop down below here literally is off

01:06

of a USB flash drive this laptop doesn’t

01:09

have a hard drive I’m using the flash

01:10

drive to use Linux and I haven’t had a

01:13

problem alright so I paid 688 not

01:17

including tax for this mouse probably a

01:19

close to $7 including including tax it

01:23

came with the packaging it’s got you

01:27

know cardboard it’s got the brand on the

01:30

front here I’ll just quickly show you

01:31

I already open it up but you know

01:33

whatever

01:46

okay it came with a little optical mouse

01:49

product guide with the model number but

01:51

there’s on the back all’s it is is the

01:53

federal Communist Commission garbage and

01:55

so interference statement but there’s

01:59

nothing about the mouse

02:09

it does have a model number Oh and a-19

02:18

ho0 41 and then the mouse now it’s not

02:23

plugged in but I’m gonna plug it in on

02:26

this computer that I’m recording this

02:29

video this is a port 4 point 9 1 foot

02:33

cable it says on the box so that you

02:36

know it’s not the longest cable in the

02:39

world but it’s not too bad it’s a little

02:41

thin here I’ll show you on camera with

02:43

this is a generic Mouse almost there’s

02:45

no brand on it but eh whatever

03:16

okay so the cable is not very thick but

03:19

I think it’ll last so just something

03:22

very light it’s the light Mouse it’s got

03:24

three buttons and a scroll I already

03:26

showed you on screen it’s not plugged in

03:28

yet – just a standard almost the size of

03:32

I would say original equipment

03:34

manufacturer Dell very similar size to a

03:37

nor the Logitech so let me plug it in

03:40

and then I’m gonna demonstrate so this

03:43

was $7.00 Mouse brand new optical now a

03:46

lot of times I do get mice excuse me I

03:49

get used ones I’ll go to a thrift store

03:51

but this evening my old Logitech the

03:54

small ones I don’t really like him but

03:56

it was Wireless it was this Wireless

03:58

Logitech mouse that I’ve had a long time

04:00

it started to fuck up and I switched out

04:04

the battery it wasn’t that I even you

04:06

know blah blah disconnected the USB

04:10

receiver yeah it wasn’t that size like

04:13

you know what and then I did not want to

04:15

drive that far there’s a savers thrift

04:17

store close by there’s a used computer

04:19

store but they’re well close by now and

04:22

I did not want to wait till tomorrow so

04:24

and I needed to get a HDMI cable anyways

04:27

and so I went to the Walmart that wasn’t

04:30

that far away so alright so let me plug

04:34

it in

04:44

okay uh-oh you know it’s interfering now

04:50

I think okay I plugged it in and as you

04:55

can see on screen it’s powered on now

04:59

okay although I noticed my encoder as

05:03

soon as I plug in this mouse my encoder

05:10

progress indicators are no longer

05:12

working so but I think that I think this

05:14

video is still getting recorded all

05:16

right let me move along and now I’m

05:19

gonna just demonstrate the red lights on

05:21

I can’t really get it much closer

05:22

because of the computers way the fuck

05:24

over here but as you can see you can see

05:27

the red light

05:28

so it’s powered on it and then I’m gonna

05:30

use it it’s worked it’s working now so

05:32

let me demonstrate it with my own

05:34

website which I can’t let’s see

05:50

okay it’s working

06:25

[Music]

06:30

I’m back towards the end of the first

06:36

part of this video you saw me you know

06:38

at the file look on my face and typing

06:41

away when I plugged in this onn Mouse

06:45

optical mouse with a scroll it caused my

06:52

encoder the Sartre that I used to record

06:54

my YouTube videos

06:55

it caused number one the sound progress

07:00

indicators to quit working and then I

07:02

could not transition because I was going

07:05

to demonstrate the mouse so that’s what

07:07

I’m this will be the last part of the

07:08

video

07:09

and so mice to me are extremely

07:12

important because I’m a computer

07:13

technician a real-world technician and I

07:16

work every day learning mentally ill or

07:19

as his ass for betting my mental illness

07:21

helping supporting Americans and others

07:26

all you know other countries with their

07:29

information technology problems so Mouse

07:31

very important ergonomics price the way

07:35

it feels in your hand and the size and

07:37

then you know also the scroll now I like

07:41

it it’s working

07:42

let me demonstrate on my website and

07:46

here as you can see it works obviously

07:50

and I’m gonna scroll now it could be

07:52

Linux I’m using MX Linux with it which

07:55

is a debian derivation Linux and it’s

08:03

very slow although I do like the scroll

08:05

wheel you can feel it it’s slow but I

08:09

found out with MX Linux that I don’t

08:12

there’s some adjustments but very few

08:16

but there is a program that a file that

08:19

you can install a small program and you

08:21

can actually adjust the scroll but for

08:26

for now this is you know it’s usable

08:29

anything else as far as the mouse so let

08:32

me try and see before I could not

08:35

transition because as soon as I as soon

08:38

as I plugged in this mouse is brand new

08:40

I’m just making a video demos

08:43

I could not transition anymore that and

08:47

I even the keyboard shortcut and then

08:50

yeah but but the video was still

08:52

recording I had to go into a terminal PS

08:56

minus EF pipe grep OS excuse me my

09:00

encoder and then literally kill the

09:05

processes and then it finally stopped

09:07

recording shit I don’t know if I want to

09:09

demonstrate I’m on my desktop you know

09:12

what I’m saying but I guess I could

09:16

let’s see I got a let’s see do I still

09:20

have it I’m using a television for the

09:29

monitor that I actually am monitoring

09:32

the encoder and then I’ve got this other

09:34

24 inch monitor that isn’t the desktop

09:37

when you record videos for YouTube it is

09:40

probably highly productive that you use

09:43

2 monitors even if it’s a laptop monitor

09:46

for what whatever you’re going to screen

09:51

capture and then a second monitor for

09:53

your encoder it makes it much easier all

09:57

right so let me I have to hey it’s right

10:02

here okay so here’s my desktop this is

10:05

MX Linux and as you can see the mouse

10:07

works ok so I just want to show you and

10:10

it it works it’s a good it’s a good

10:14

Mouse it’s working pretty good so I just

10:16

want to show you that I can right-click

10:17

and then I can left-click and then I

10:20

already demonstrated the scrolling

10:23

although it is a bit slow but me I’ll go

10:27

back to my website and I’m scrolling I

10:31

am scrolling normal there is no speed

10:36

that’s not okay that’s as fast as I can

10:38

scroll now this is about normal yeah

10:42

that’s that that’s all

10:45

a little bit too slow because I don’t

10:48

know about you but when I’m out on the

10:50

internet and I have to support customers

10:52

there are these Americans especially

10:54

they’re very very very just uptight Oh

10:59

Oh the other day I got threatened with a

11:03

lawsuit this is the kind of fucking this

11:05

is overtime now although I will what how

11:08

many minutes now let’s see the first

11:09

part was about six minutes twelve six

11:13

foot ten about five minutes maybe a

11:15

little bit over time I got threatened

11:18

with a lawsuit although I don’t take a

11:20

serious these customers on the third

11:24

prior website where I earn supplemental

11:25

income helping people with their

11:27

information technology you probably most

11:29

a lot of they’re fucking assholes they

11:33

threaten you he said you got 24 hours or

11:38

I’m contacting my lawyer and and then he

11:41

asked who I was who are you and I was

11:43

like and I just typed that okay I

11:46

haven’t received a death threat yet on

11:48

this third player website but if I ever

11:50

do it will be public I’ve been cussed at

11:54

you know fuck you oh the last time I

11:58

always report on how I get treated oh

12:00

yeah information technology you get

12:02

treated like garbage

12:04

they could be racist or that maybe they

12:06

don’t I don’t know whatever their

12:08

problem is on this website you know the

12:10

pale skinned Europeans I mean about a

12:13

few weeks ago I had a client telling me

12:16

go fuck yourself

12:17

he was stingy I’m not gonna tell you the

12:21

exact price points but this website will

12:23

have kind of like I don’t know how to

12:27

describe it they will offer really cheap

12:31

low prices for information technology

12:35

services that really they could you know

12:38

could charge hundreds of dollars easily

12:41

but I think it’s just a tactic to get

12:43

also they upsell and they got you know

12:46

membership and I don’t want to go into

12:49

all that he wasn’t paying hardly

12:52

anything pennies on the dollar

12:55

he did not like the fact that he had to

12:58

pay for help and then he did love

13:03

emotional these goddamn Americans

13:06

Americans run off of emotions and they

13:10

refuse to use any logic even the males

13:14

the males are metrosexual bitches a lot

13:16

of them they’re worse than the some of

13:19

the females on this website although

13:21

some of the females just and they’re

13:24

very impatient well if you don’t if you

13:27

don’t have a a the help if you don’t

13:34

have a you know a white pages or if you

13:38

don’t have a novel is worth of help and

13:41

if you don’t get it to them and within

13:43

sight oh yes they can fire us and I can

13:45

fire them these motherfuckers are so

13:50

impatient that within a minute I’m not

13:53

making this shit up a couple minutes a

13:55

minute two minute BAM they fire you well

13:57

it doesn’t bother me anymore I don’t

13:58

care we can fire them too

14:00

Need Online Computer Technical Support? Ask a Computer Technician. Solve Your Computer Problem Now.

which I do if they get abusive so within

14:07

the last couple of weeks I got eight go

14:08

fuck yourself well a few days ago I got

14:11

a I received a well I’m gonna sue you

14:15

first this motherfucker threatened to

14:17

sue the company I’m working for I’m like

14:19

well I’m an independent contractor and

14:21

they even have a disclaimer basically

14:25

telling the clients that they are not

14:28

gonna be able to that this company is

14:31

not responsible for anything that I talk

14:35

about or any kind of advice or any kind

14:37

of tips or any kind of instructions and

14:40

so however I don’t cave in to the

14:43

fear-mongering false evidence appearing

14:45

real

14:45

then the motherfucker came back and he

14:47

said well you got 24 hours I’m gonna sue

14:50

your company and I’m gonna sue you and

14:52

then they asked who are you and well duh

14:54

I’m not a dumbass I’m not gonna and so

14:57

there I just typed in okay now what else

15:00

with him in the last few yeah so I got

15:03

threatened with that oh there they get

15:05

very impatient

15:07

and so you know anyways now a little bit

15:11

over time as far as mice goes they can

15:15

be very important because obviously you

15:18

have to use a mouse unless it’s a laptop

15:22

and it’s got a built in what’s called as

15:24

the nipple or the little nipple mouse or

15:27

the the track pad

15:29

oh I hate track pads the oh I love IBM

15:34

Lenovo’s nipple mouse as I refer to it

15:37

you know the little Adele also has

15:40

something so Dells yeah there yeah Dells

15:43

even on a Mac Mac and crap computer I

16:02

just fucking hate them the the track the

16:08

those old school mice anyways I don’t

16:14

want to digress too much I’m very

16:16

particular when it comes to – because

16:19

you got these impatient mother fucking

16:21

cockroach Americans that they they they

16:24

want you to fix their computer or

16:28

quagmire and if you don’t respond within

16:31

seconds and and you better you better be

16:34

correct the first time and oh my god if

16:36

they have to pay any money for it that’s

16:38

a big issue on this website

16:40

the Americans are bitches they’re

16:42

literally wine they want they complain

16:45

Americans complaints they’re not paying

16:48

hardly it very little pennies on the

16:50

dollar if I admitted how much I earned

16:55

to support you motherfuckers you’d

16:57

probably laugh at me you or you’d be

17:00

like wondering what the Ferren what the

17:02

fuck you’re a moron or it’s your fault

17:05

or well you you know well you deserve it

17:08

or just shut up or just quit however I

17:12

supplement my income and I don’t have to

17:15

drive in anywhere I don’t have to sit in

17:17

a cubicle

17:18

I get to work wherever I want basically

17:21

as long as I have you know decent

17:23

internet access but our mouse is

17:25

extremely important

17:27

now here’s my litmus test with mice and

17:28

I’ve noticed over the years it really

17:30

doesn’t necessarily matter how much you

17:33

pay although sometimes you do pay you do

17:36

get what you pay for or sometimes you

17:38

don’t my litmus test is a mouse on knock

17:43

on wood that lawsuit will probably go

17:46

through and you’ll never hear from me

17:47

again because fuck you motherfuckers do

17:54

you think you think I was born yesterday

17:55

you think I’m gonna cave in now I talked

17:59

about this before quickly I investigated

18:02

this third party billion-dollar fascist

18:04

crooked criminal corporation that I earn

18:08

income on and there are more than one

18:12

accusations that the CEO of the founder

18:16

the founder of this corporation is one

18:18

of the trolls I think there are trolls

18:20

on this it’s either the moderators

18:23

employees or the executives or the

18:28

founder I’m not making this shit up

18:30

there’s more than one accusation that

18:33

it’s an inside job there are the trolls

18:36

or it could be other technicians I’ve

18:38

read about that too then are greedy and

18:41

when I’ve been on this website for like

18:44

ten years however if I quit for a while

18:47

cuz anyways they rebranded the dumb

18:50

mistake I don’t know some of these

18:53

corporations are the people that run

18:56

these are very arrogant fucking morons

18:59

rebranded themselves and then literally

19:01

overnight when they transition to the

19:02

new website with a different brand an

19:04

entirely different name I mean there was

19:07

nothing I was like are you fucking nuts

19:11

it was like very few you know requests

19:16

to work on and I mean the money just and

19:20

I was like I was like I’m not getting

19:22

the fuck out of here well a few years

19:26

later they corrected that mistake and

19:28

they went to their old brand but I

19:30

didn’t know about

19:31

and I needed money at that well I’m

19:33

always needing money because you know

19:35

the system requires it but at that time

19:37

I decided I was wondering what happened

19:39

to those knuckleheads that fucking made

19:41

the dumbest shit mistake of rebranding

19:43

and then literally overnight no traffic

19:47

no money just homelessness and poverty

19:51

in alcoholism in you have to wonder

19:56

these knuckleheads that fucking our

19:58

executives and these billion-dollar

20:00

crooked criminal corporations anyways I

20:07

went back recently and they changed how

20:09

you earn income but still you know just

20:15

Wow

20:19

anyways this is a noisy fan I’m getting

20:22

distracted by the fan I gotta run mega

20:23

run so mines very important oh it’s not

20:27

always you don’t always get what you pay

20:29

for and you can buy a real expensive

20:32

mice but the my litmus test of a mouse a

20:35

good Mouse versus a average or terrible

20:38

Mouse is what knock on what this is a

20:42

countertop probably synthetic wood that

20:45

you would find in a hotel motel

20:47

maybe apartments or a Kieth type

20:51

furniture very flat I don’t have a

20:54

mousepad

20:55

that’s another litmus test does the

20:57

mouse we’re good without a mousepad that

20:59

it that’s a you know what I’m saying

21:00

very this is excellent I’m right now

21:04

like literally it is very smooth

21:07

it’s excellent there I’m saying even up

21:11

as I can just it’s not perfect oh come

21:17

on now as I say that it’s not perfect

21:20

but it’s very workable I don’t have to

21:24

buy a mousepad

21:25

its optical but not all optical mice are

21:28

the same some you have to have a

21:30

mousepad another litmus test is try it

21:33

on carpet I’m not making this up or try

21:35

it on a couch cushion or a bedspread it

21:38

should be flat but a good working mouse

21:42

with good optics will work on carpet

21:47

because I’ve trust me I know it will

21:50

work on a sofa or the you know the

21:54

cushions on a sofa and it will work on a

21:58

bedspread a really good Mouse doesn’t

22:02

matter what you pay the OP the optical

22:05

mice will work some are horrible on

22:09

anything that is not a mousepad

22:12

whereas I love mice like the I haven’t

22:15

tested this yet on carpet or cushion or

22:19

bedspread but I probably will later and

22:22

you know maybe I’ll think about it but

22:24

probably not but on the counter its

22:27

excellent so far it’s better than that

22:29

all

22:33

logitech wireless mouse i can already

22:36

tell

22:36

now that Mouse is pretty old I don’t

22:39

know if the optics degrade after time I

22:43

don’t know if you you might have to

22:44

clean the surface but this is very

22:47

smooth excellent like I can even show

22:50

the I know this is a mouse video but

22:53

very important because this is how you

22:55

control a computer you know what I’m

22:57

saying and a keyboard is important too

22:59

and the ergonomics hours I’m trying to

23:07

is it there

23:14

oh I almost had it I almost had it and

23:17

then I gotta run I gotta run I did throw

23:19

in some overtime there we go so oh look

23:23

look can you see how fast that is

23:25

that’s as fast I mean it’s excellent

23:33

Walmart up and down it’s great dude now

23:36

the scroll isn’t the best but you know

23:39

23:45

buttons they seem what yeah it seems

23:49

pretty good the scroll some scroll

23:53

wheels you can’t you know what I’m

23:55

saying you don’t know it’s kind of hard

23:57

to explain they scroll really easily

24:00

real loose other ones are thicker

24:04

heavier feeling and they scroll I don’t

24:08

know how to explain it this one is kind

24:10

of in the middle like like you can like

24:12

literally feel the scroll in on my

24:15

finger and you can kind of feel it

24:19

rotating I kind of like that but it’s

24:22

slower but I think it’s in the settings

24:24

some mice the one the lenovo mice the

24:29

original equipment manufacturer their

24:31

scroll the scrolls are real small real

24:35

light and they just been real real fast

Cinelerra GG – Not Launching After Installation Fix

Another computer problem in the world order. This time it dealt with a free and open source application called Cinelerra GG, that I installed on MX Linux. Cinelerra allows you to edit video, create videos, create video documentaries, etc.

I installed Cinelerra on a quad core desktop computer with MX Linux distribution. However, the first time I tried launching this application from the program menu, nothing happened. Further investigation of mine did not lead to a solution.

I tried launching Cinelerra GG via the command line with this simple command:

cin

Cinelerra still would not open. However, by running it in a command line terminal, an error message was displayed on screen. The file libva-drm.so.1 was missing.

I tried installing this missing library file with the following command:

apt-get install libva-drm.so.1

Unfortunately, apt-get could not find this file. This type of fiasco is nothing new in Linux. Especially, if you use a derivation Linux distribution like MX Linux.

Need Online Computer Technical Support? Ask a Computer Technician. Solve Your Computer Problem Now.

MX Linux is a Debian derivation distribution based on Debian Linux. It by no means is exactly the same as Debian, Ubuntu, etc. I could not find this exact Linux library file in any Internet searches.

Finally, I used rpmfind.net and found the correct library file. However, it was named differently. The correct Linux library file to install is:

libva-drm1

The correct command to run is:

apt-get install libva-drm1

This library file successfully installed without adding any additional repository. Cinelerra then successfully launched. These instructions were written for MX Linux 18.3 installed on a quad core computer. However, you can use these instructions as a basis point for other possible Linux distributions.

Initially, I had to enable the IGN cinelerra-gg.org repository in MX Linux, in order to install Cinelerra GG program. These are the types of problems that can arise when using a non standard so to speak Linux distribution.

Office 365 For Mac Download

I received another computer related question on a third party website whereby I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. The question is quoted verbatim below.

Having issues with downloading Office 365 for MacBook Pro.

This individual owned a Macintosh computer with Macintosh operating system Mojave 10.14.2 installed. They were trying to upgrade their version of Microsoft Office Excel. They stipulated they were using an older version of Microsoft Office Excel.

They were trying to download and install a newer version of Microsoft Office Excel from the Apple iTunes store. They were having some kind of authentication issue with their Microsoft IDentification. They were not able to install or use Microsoft Office Excel on their Macintosh computer.

Need Online Computer Technical Support? Ask a Computer Technician. Solve Your Computer Problem Now.

I asked if they had tried downloading and installing Microsoft Office Excel from the official Microsoft Office website, which is Office.com. They claimed that they had not. Yes, normally you are supposed to install it from https://office.com.

Log in with a Hotmail, Outlook.com, MSN.com, Skype, etc. account. You will be able download and install from this site. This individual was able to successfully download and install Microsoft Office Excel from Office.com.

When in doubt always try to download and install software from the original developer’s website. There could be many reasons why it will fail from third party websites. These instructions were written for a Macintosh computer with Macintosh operating system Mojave 10.14.2 installed.

You could certainly use this tip to install Microsoft Office suite and not just Excel onto a computer(s) with Microsoft Windows operating system. When in doubt, go directly to Microsoft in this instance.

Epson 4500 Printer – Not Connected to Macintosh Fix

Another computer printer problem in the world order. This time an individual was no longer able to use their Epson 4500 Printer. The original initial question is quoted verbatim below.

All of a sudden my Epson 4500 printer/scanner says it’s not connected to my Macintosh (operating system Mojave 10.14.3). It has just happened on a frantic work day. What to do?

It is definitely connected.

This is a common problem that occurs on both Apple Macintosh computers and Microsoft Windows based computers. This individual could no longer scan using the automatic document feeder. Also, this type of false positive, so to speak, problem is NOT mutually exclusive to just Epson brand printers.

This type of problem can occur with any brand of printer. When they tried to scan they also received that dreaded not connected error. This individual tried to power off both their Apple Macintosh computer and Epson 4500 printer as well as disconnecting their printer from their Apple Macintosh computer.

You want to power off your printer. Then you want to disconnect the power cable from your wall outlet. Now disconnect the Universal Serial Bus printer cable from both your printer and computer.

Need Online Computer Technical Support? Ask a Computer Technician. Solve Your Computer Problem Now.

Press and hold the power button on your printer for 30-60 seconds. Leave your printer disconnected from the power source for 5 to 10 minutes. Reconnect the Universal Serial Bus cable and power cable.

Power on your printer and see if it will now print and or scan. If this does not fix your problem with your printer problem, then you will need to download and reinstall the printer software and driver.

Remove all instances of your printer software from “Applications”. Remove all instances of your printer from “Printers & Scanners”. Download and install the printer software from the link below.

https://ftp.epson.com/drivers/ET4500_Lite_64_NA.dmg

These instructions were written for an Apple Macintosh computer with Apple Macintosh operating system Mojave 10.14.3 installed and Epson ET 4500 printer. You can most certainly use these instructions as a basis point to possibly solve the same printer problem with the same error on other Apple Macintosh operating systems. You would just need to download the appropriate driver for your specific Apple Macintosh operating system.

Also, you can use these instructions as a basis point for troubleshooting printer not connected errors on Microsoft Windows operating systems. Once again, you would just need to download the specific driver and software appropriate for the version of Microsoft operating system installed on your computer.

How to Upgrade Yosemite – to El Capitan

Another computer question surfaces in the world order. This time an individual wanted to upgrade the operating system on their Macintosh computer. The initial original question quoted verbatim is below.

How do I upgrade my Mac to OS 10.12?

This individual owned a Apple Macintosh computer with Macintosh operating system 10.11.6 El Capitan installed. They needed to upgrade their Macintosh computer operating system to comply with the download and attempted install of Turbo Tax software. This is a common occurrence with tax software.

Depending on the brand, many new tax software releases require you to upgrade your operating system. At this time Turbo Tax required Apple Macintosh operating system 10.12 Sierra in order to work.

You can upgrade via the Apple Macintosh Application Store. Also, you can use the iTunes link below. You will need your Macintosh administrator account password and Apple identification to upgrade.

https://support.apple.com/macos/mojave

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-mojave/id1398502828?mt=12

Need Online Computer Technical Support? Ask a Computer Technician. Solve Your Computer Problem Now.

This individual then claimed that their Apple Macintosh computer was not compatible with Apple Macintosh 10.14 Mojave operating system. You can try this link below.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-sierra/id1127487414?ls=1&mt=12

Also, you can check out the full Apple Macintosh Sierra 10.12 installation instructions. This individual then had forgotten their Apple Macintosh administrator password. If you forget your Apple Macintosh administrator password, there are numerous ways to reset it.

However, you will need some technical skills, which according to my experiences, many Apple endusers lack basic computing skills. This is an excellent time to lecture. You should always know your Apple Macintosh administrator password.

In this day and age what with the Internet, there are no excuses to remain so ignorant of such basic computer skills. Also, you should always know your Apple Identification password. Without either of these passwords, you are fucked, when it comes to being able to upgrade your Apple Macintosh operating system.

Luckily, the Apple Macintosh operating system has some different ways to potentially reset it. However, I would never use this type of feature like a crutch.

Logitech C920 Webcam Mac – Mojave Compatible

Another computer issue in the world order. This time an individual had a question about Macintosh computers and webcam compatibility. Here is the original initial question verbatim below.

I need help getting my new Logitech C920 web cam to work.

This individual was using a Apple Macintosh mini computer with Apple Macintosh Mojave 10.14 operating system installed. They had purchased an application from the Apple Applicatin store called “Web Cam Settings”. What a fucking waste of money.

Anyways, they had watched another Youtube video to try and help them install the Logitech C920 on their Apple Macintosh mini computer with Apple Macintosh Mojave 10.14 operating system installed. This is what solved this conundrum.

You can download and install the webcam software from the following link.

https://download01.logi.com/web/ftp/pub/techsupport/cameras/Webcams/LogiCameraSettings_2.5.12.pkg

Need Online Computer Technical Support? Ask a Computer Technician. Solve Your Computer Problem Now.

They were then able to use their Logitech C920 webcam with their Apple Macintosh mini computer. When it comes to Logitech web cameras and Apple Macintosh computers, it can become a crap shoot. It really depends on the exact model of Logitech web camera you have.

Also, important is what Apple Macintosh operating system you are using. You do NOT necessarily want to assume that your Logitech web camera will work with your Apple Macintosh computer. Also, you do NOT want to necessarily assume that the operating system you are using on your Apple Macintosh computer will be compatible with your Logitech web camera.

You could always first find out what web camera model you have or wish to purchase. Then find out the exact operating system you are using. This example this individual was using Apple Macintosh 10.14 Mojave.

Then you want to verify on Logitech’s website whether or not your Logitech web camera will work or not. Sometimes there will be a software download available. However, depending on the exact operating system and Logitech we camera model, there may NOT be any software download available for your Apple Macintosh computer.

Also, you want to first install the software onto your Macintosh computer. Then once that is accomplished successfully, you connect the web camera to a Universal Serial Bus cable on your Macintosh computer. Finally, you open up a video software application similar to Facetime, Skype, etc. to test your web camera.
