Ouranos:

Would it be fair in your opinion to monetise on real Dummies by allowing Google to add adds to those videos?

 

 

Staying on topic, "adds" does not mean advertisements. That would be "ads".

 

 

Typo. But well spotted. I have actually posted that Part 1 of Hybrid Battery For Dummies Video here with no ads:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejMPDOu04Rg

 

Inserted 30 titles so that people who can't understand my accent can read.

 

What is annoying with Google CC (closed captions) is that Google can't understand accents - you may have fun and switch on CC in that 7 minute Video and see how stupid Google is superimposing rubbish captions over my subtitles.

Your captions should replace the autogenerated ones if you do them properly. If you use cards or annotations instead of captions, then people watching on non-browser players will have them not available to them.

Trying to buy something from Amazon, then been told you can't have it because you live in New Zealand. Why can't they tell you that on the product page it's?

Even worse - filtering by items available to ship to NZ, then clicking on said items and finding they DO NOT ship to NZ...

I've been meaning to post this for a couple of days now.

 

 

 

The Apple iPhone 6S TV ad, during the Ad the commentary goes something like 'pictures have changed, they move now'

 

So then that'll be video then not a picture any more??
