Question about YouTube Videos

1 Answer

Video playtime and photo stills

I just posted a new video on youtube - a little differently than my other two. First the playtime should only be about 3 minutes and is showing as 10 so after it ends there's a black screen for another 6=7 minutes.

Secondly, no thumbnails appeared and I'd like to have a picture if possible.

Anything I can do besides deleting and starting over?

Thanks to anyone that can help.

BTW, I've tried to get on the forum and it keeps telling me to log in to youtube first......and I am!!!!!

I think I know what you're talking about. Did you make this video in windows movie maker? If so, you may have added an additional bit of blank space. Most likely, you are going to need to delete the video and start it over. Videos on youtube, usually are only able to be up to 10 minutes in length, sometimes it lets you up to 15 depending on what it is (I can't clarify that.) Somewhere along the way, something was changed and it shouldn't have been and therefore it left your video in youtube shambles! Your best bet is going to be restarting it, or doing it the way you normally do it.

How to reset my HP photo smart 8150 printer

Oh the PAINSTAKING things HP goes through to make sure you HAVE TO buy your ink from them.. I've always thought if HP put about HALF the time into building a better machine and lowering their supply pricing as they put into STOPPING you from using compatibles, they'd dominate the market...

Oh well, Brother and Canon are "quietly" dominating the marketplace, and soon HP will be where Honda for automobiles is today. Simply equal amongst other competitors.

Now onto the question, as I am digressing...

There is Soooooo many different methods, and honestly, once posted online, HP goes back to their drawing board and recreates updates to their machines and eliminates that method... That's why HP drivers always seem to be constantly upgrading themselves, while other printer drivers don't...

I suggest you go to YouTube and do a search through the many different videos. Honestly, what works today, won't tomorrow, so don't get discouraged if someone's post doesn't work. At one time it probably did and HP closed off that gap...

Just continue to search as YouTube always seems to have the latest and most up to date fixes for resetting HP items.. :)

I have a Canon MX340 printer. For some time now I have had a problem when I print a copy of my bank statement. Several names of items are missing (the date is there). I have uploaded a new driver,

Are you sure all cartridges are full? if in your bank statements are different colours, one colour could stay invisible if one cartridge is empty. My Canon has two different black cartridges. One for photo, one for text. Both should have enough ink.

My screen i showing a light blue/teal tint in areas where there should be white

no photos posted, it takes what, 5min to snap photo and post it?
old CQ56, a relic in PC dog lives, for sure.
pages, what pages,? name one/?
videos, well that is complex topic, videos have vast formats
and the players used and sources, non of which you stated.
whAT OS, XP the virus magnet, never post lacking OS name and version. or its all just fireworks, and bs.

Id reload the unstated OS, of XP for sure.
wow a real model stated, here, fully,
it came new with XP or W7 new. what might yours be?
last year, W7 was upgraded to W10 for free, did you?
we cant guess ANY of that.
Compaq Presario CQ56-115DX Notebook PC birth year 2009/10
still supported by HP, lucky you, that the software for it free while HP still has it.

ill now post on video
videos can be viewed online or off.
Il'l guess you do this online. like youtube.
I use VLC, the player works.
most others dont or can not do some formats, (bad acts)
as in most program apps, xp verison are rife with viruses on line
so avoid XP. unless that is fun, getting cyberattacked.
most sources are malware or worse, use the makers pages.
is best. this is the best I can do lacking OS name, and no photos of the failing app.

I can get to a video site, by searching or browsing. When I get there, however, I see a black rectangle where the video should be, and there is no way (no buttons) to start viewing. This only happened a...

You'll have to wait until the YouTube problem is solved.
I assume the site was HACKED in the A.M. on Wednesday July 6, 2011
( because none of the music videos play ).

Hope this little bit of info helps you.

Videos stop and start. How to fix

It is called buffering. The video's tend to play and stops at some point and then continue playing because it is still loading the video. Just wait for the video to load completely before playing. You will notice this thru the red indication bar align with the play button. If the loading does not finish, try reloading the webpage by pressing F5.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

How can I make slideshows for youtube?

Youtube only accepts video formats like MP4, AVI, FLV, so you have to make a video slideshow.

To make a video slideshow, you can first make a PowerPoint slideshow with your Microsoft PowerPoint, if you are using PowerPoint 2010, you can save your slideshow to wmv video directly, if you are using PowerPoint 2007 or a lower PowerPoint version, you can use a powerpoint to video converter like

Moyea PPT to Video Converter
Leawo PowerPoint to Video

After the conversion, you can upload the video slideshow to youtube smoothly.

What videos can it play?

Any videos that are in the proper format.

Download and install the "Sansa Firmware Updater", connect your Fuze, and run the Updater. Besides making sure that your Fuze has the most up-to-date firmware, it'll allow you to download the "Sansa Media Converter", which can convert most videos directly onto your Fuze in a format that it can play.

I would fist try updating the memory to at a minimum 256MB. You might also try changing you display card an accelerated model. My guess would be you are currently sharing memory with an onboard display card. Not good for Video streaming!
