How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

Being the second largest search engine in the world regarding a huge user base, YouTube has got significant exposure in the tech arena. It was started by two former PayPal employees back in 2005, and Google bought them after a year with a whopping $1.6 billion deal.

After the purchase, Google has made a lot of changes to YouTube be it in algorithm or design. There are millions of people who keep on visiting YouTube before buying a product or getting things done.

So, today I am here with a simple tutorial on how to make a playlist on YouTube.

How to Make a Playlist on YouTube

You don’t have to rack your brain to know how to create a YouTube playlist anymore. In this tutorial, you are going to know how to create a YouTube playlist for public and private uses as well. Moreover, I have added a third section in which you will get to know how to create a playlist on YouTube without logging in to your Google account.

Are you ready to explore the process? Here we go.

How to Make a Public YouTube Playlist

Here I will be walking you through the entire process of creating a private playlist on YouTube. Follow the steps given below to get it done.

N.B. – You must be logged in to your Google account for creating a public playlist through these steps.

Step 1: Go to youtube.com and you can see a sign in button on the top right portion of the screen. Without wasting much time, click on the same. You will be asked to enter the credentials of your Google account.

Enter your username (the user part of your email address without a host) and password correctly. You can use the Forgot password section if you can’t remember the password.

Step 2: Now, you have to select a video to be added to the playlist you are about to create. Don’t worry! You can delete it whenever you want in case the selection goes wrong.

Step 3: I hope you have selected a video for adding. Don’t hesitate to open that video for taking further action.

After opening the video, you want to add to your playlist, send your eyes downward to the bottom of the video. Just below the channel details, you can see three options there- Add to, Share and More.

Step 4: You should click on Add to, and it will display a small box to choose your playlist. As you don’t know how to create YouTube playlists, you have to make one.

And then, click the blue Create button.

Step 6: You have just created a new playlist and added that particular video into it.

How to Make a Private YouTube Playlist

Things are not quite different from creating a public playlist here. The only step is different from here that you won’t find difficult to follow through.

So, you have to follow the three steps of the previous section I have given. That means you must click on Add to.

Step 7: This step is slightly different here compared with the one we used to create a public YouTube playlist.

At first, you have to put a name for your playlist. Don’t worry about the name. You can choose anything as it can only be seen by you.

How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

Then, choose Private from the drop-down menu. Finally, hit that Create button. That’s all.

How to Make a YouTube Playlist without Logging in

When it comes to making public playlists on YouTube without logging in, things start to change. The process is completely different from both the methods I have listed above.

Step 1: We all know that every YouTube video has a unique ID that can be found at the end of their URL. Here, the first step is to collect the unique YouTube IDs of videos you want to include in a playlist.

(The bolded texts in the above YouTube URLs indicate the unique ids of them).

Step 2: Now, you have to enter this one into your address bar.

http://www.youtube.com/watch_videos?video_ids=ID1,ID2,ID3,ID4 where ID1, ID2, ID3 and ID4 represents the unique IDs of videos.

Here mine is http://www.youtube.com/watch_videos?video_ids= PTj9epp2MIM, 1sgeM6DsV40, q37wmlgLAjI, t8aoe213zOA.

As soon as you hit enter after inserting this address, YouTube will create a Playlist for anybody.

My playlist is located at http://www.youtube.com/watch_videos?video_ids= PTj9epp2MIM, 1sgeM6DsV40, q37wmlgLAjI, t8aoe213zOA (The same address I have given here).

This playlist can be seen and played by anyone. Moreover, people can add more videos to it.

How to Delete a Playlist on YouTube

Here, I am going to help the playlists you created.

Step 1: Log in to your YouTube account with correct login details.

Step 2: Click on the three stripes given left to the YouTube logo to uncover more options.

How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

How to Do Hotmail Server Settings for IMAP, POP3 and SMT

Published

on

Hotmail now known as outlook.com is one of the very first email service providers. Like every other email services, Hotmail can be accessed from any computer with the internet connection.

But do you know, you can access your mailbox even from your desktop?? Yes, you heard me right. You can not only have access to all your email on your local computer but other devices including iPhone, Android and tablet.

There are a number of local email client Softwares such as outlook express, thunderbird etc which lets you access your mailbox right on your computer or other such devices.

But, in order to associate your email server to the mail clients, you essentially need to know about Hotmail server settings.

Hotmail allows access to the mailbox from the server to your computer via the three protocols IMAP, POP3 and SMTP. Where both IMAP and POP3 serve the same purpose and referred as Hotmail incoming mail server protocols.

While SMTP, on the other hand, is referred as the Hotmail outgoing mail server protocol. In today’s guide, we will study in-depth about what are valid SMTP, IMAP and POP3 settings, and which protocol is superior over other, just stay tuned!

How To Do Hotmail Server Settings

Hotmail server settings are a very crucial part, which is to be done very carefully. If not done properly, you can’t establish a connection in between your mail client and email server. In result, you’ll not be able to access your mailbox via your desktop or mobile.

Before going on the settings part, let’s take a look at some points which are mandatory to know!

IMAP or POP3 which one is better??

hotmail-server-settings

As I mentioned above, both IMAP and POP3 serves the same purpose. But there is a major difference in working with both the protocols.

POP3 protocol keeps your email client out of sync into the email server. Meaning, suppose your mail client is associated with your server and you have all your emails downloaded on your device whether it is a computer, mobile or any other compatible device.

Now, if you delete any email after reading it on an email client on one device, it might still be there on your email server or on any other device which is connected to that Hotmail account.

On the contrary, IMAP has no such drawback. IMAP is superior over POP3 in a way that its keeps the synchronization between all your devices and your email server connected to that particular account.

If you read, reply, or delete any message, the simultaneous action would be performed on all the connected devices. IMAP sync in all the activities on every device.

So in every manner, IMAP makes a better choice over POP3.

Now let’s see what are the SMTP, IMAP and POP3 protocols settings you’ll require when connecting your email client to the email server.

Hotmail IMAP Settings

IMAP is responsible for downloading emails from your email server to your local computer. After knowing the difference between both the incoming mail server protocols, you must have decided to go for IMAP since it helps to keep the synchronization between any email app and the server.

If you have decided to go for IMAP, then following are the settings you would require to setting up your email client.

  •  Server: imap-mail.outlook.com
  • Port: 993
  • Encrypted Connection: SSL
  • Username: Your email address
  • Password: Your password

Hotmail POP3 Settings

Even though IMAP is superior over SMTP, but in different circumstances, you may have to select POP3 as the incoming mail protocol. So, here are the POP3 settings you need to know.

  • Server: pop-mail.outlook.com
  • Port: 995
  • Encrypted Connection: SSL
  • Username: Your email address
  • Password: Your password

Note: To setup your email client via POP3 protocol, you’ll require to enabling your Hotmail account to allow POP access. A method for this is given below in the guide.

Hotmail SMTP Settings

Following are the settings you’ll require to setting up your email client with SMTP protocol as the outgoing mail server.

  • Server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
  • Port: 25 (or 587 if 25 is blocked)
  • Authentication: Yes
  • Encrypted Connection: TLS
  • Username: Your email address
  • Password: Your password

SMTP settings will be same for both the incoming server protocols.

Enable POP access on Hotmail

To enable POP access, you need to go to your Hotmail account. Below, I’ve given a step by step guide with screenshots on how to do that.

Step 1. First of all, enter your login credentials and login to your outlook or Hotmail account.

Step 2. Once you are on the home page, click on the small gear icon located on the top right corner just beside your name and display. See the below screenshot if you can’t find the option.

Step 3. On clicking, this gear icon, a list of options will abruptly open. One of the options is “Options”, click on that.

Step 4. Now under Managing your account, click “Connect devices and apps with POP”. If you find difficulty in finding the option, see below.

Step 5. Now under POP, select Enable and click on Save. That’s it!  

Now since you have got all the necessary information regarding Hotmail server settings, you are ready to access your emails from your computer, android or tablets.

Now send as many emails as you want, read emails and delete them if you want. You are completely in sync with the email server.

Whatever activity you’ll perform on your email client on one device whether it’s about reading an email, replying to it, or deleting it, it will get synced back to your email server and it will affect on every device connected to that particular Hotmail account.

You are completely in sync with the email server. Whatever activity you’ll perform on your email client on one device whether it’s about reading an email, replying to it, or deleting it, it will get synced back to your email server and it will affect on every device connected to that particular Hotmail account.

But there are certain requirements which should be possessed by your email client in order to establish the connection and sync in your emails from the mail server.

Make sure the email client you are using supports Hotmail HTTP access. Since Hotmail uses HTTP protocol for connecting email clients to email servers.

Now it’s time to wrap up the article. I hope this guide was helpful to you. If you liked the guide and found the information useful, share it on your share mediums so that other people can take benefits from it.

People have realized the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and have started working towards getting fit. Gym is the first thing that comes to one’s mind when it comes to toning down the body and staying fit. There are millions of gyms across the globe, which aim at helping people build a fitness routine in their everyday life.

Healthy eating habits have also kicked in and a lot of health-conscious people are avoiding junk food and changing as vegans or healthy eaters. People have realized the need to stay fit and started enrolling in gyms. These gyms aim at helping its customers to tone down and stay fit.

Planet Fitness also has the same intention to help people get fit. It is a famous gym franchise, which offers low monthly payments. It requires a contract, which limits cancellation and it also provides a fee schedule for early cancellation. The best way of cancelling Planet Fitness membership is by writing to the Membership Services department.

There are a lot of people who take Planet Fitness membership and after a few months they realize it is not for them and they it. Though cancelling a gym membership is not good news, many people feel that they can instead enroll in to some sport and engage in some sort of physical activity. So this is why in today’s article, we show you how to cancel planet fitness membership.

How-to-cancel-planet-fitness-membership

 

How to Cancel Planet Fitness Membership?

For all of those who are not sure about how to cancel planet fitness membership, here are some things that you need to pay attention to.

#1. Finding the Contract

Even though you might have enrolled with a no signup fee scheme, you still have signed an agreement, which designates how you can cancel the membership and in what situations you may be allowed to waive off the cancellation fees.

#2. Read the Contract  

The contract lays out the terms and conditions, and you should be aware of it. Check if you have a monthly contract or an annual one, whether you paid monthly or annually; it is likely that you signed a one year contract. Check when your contract is up. It will be easier to wait for a month or two until the contract is up.

#3. Be Attentive to the Billing Cycle

Generally, for a monthly contract, one must cancel the membership before the 10th of the month, as you are usually billed before 20th, and the company also needs time to process your request. For an annual contract, you need to cancel before the 27th of the month prior to when you are billed.

Always think of a fitness contract just like a leasing contract, giving 30 days notice and paying fees for early cancellation are usual with gyms.

#4. Get the Gym Fees Waived

If you can provide a written proof that you are injured or that you must relocate out of range of a Planet Fitness, you can have the fees waived.

If you are injured, try getting a note from your doctor confirming that you will not be able to use the gym facilities.  If you are relocating to a new place, it must be at least 40 kms away from any Planet Fitness location. Request your employer to write a relocation letter, and ensure to map out the distance before mentioning where you will be moving.

How-to-cancel-planet-fitness-membership

If the above-stated situations do not apply to you, you will be asked to pay the cancellation fee. However, if you have a solid reason for cancelling the membership, you can escape paying the fee. But be very sure to have written statement of your situation as nobody just takes one’s word these days. 

You should have your membership identification number, personal information like your address, driving license number or your date of birth. Write a single page document requesting to cancel the membership. Ensure that it is in accordance with the contract’s specifications.

Specify in your letter that you want the cancellation fee to be waived off if you are eligible and state the reason. Include all your personal information; you need to mention the last four digits of your social security number and your driving license number and then sign on it.

Here are some important things you need to do when you cancel the membership

  • You can call the respective department requesting for a meeting to cancel your membership.
  • Try meeting up with a representative of Planet Fitness. Tell them that you want to cancel your membership and provide them a written documentation. Once the cancellation is done. Have a copy of the letter with the signature of the representative. It will be useful in future, if they ever get back asking you to pay the fee.
  • Make arrangements to cancel the future monthly payments. Clear off any sort of cancellation fees so that you can be sure that your membership is fully cancelled.
  • Note down the name and number of the representative; this is important in case you get into trouble after canceling, like if you are charged a huge amount all of a sudden, you can reach out to the representative for help.
  • Check your bank statement to ensure that you are not being charged the membership fee on a monthly basis even after cancelling the membership. If you find that you are being charged, then contact planet fitness immediately and fix this issue as soon as possible.
  • In case the gym is still asking you to pay the fee, provide them the written document of cancellation to prove that you actually cancelled the membership.

These are the few things you can do in order to cancel the planet fitness membership. It is of utmost importance to read the terms and conditions when you sign up for something like this in future as you might be charged hefty amounts in case you fail to live up to the terms and conditions mentioned in the contract.

And with this, we come to the end of this article!

Published

on

If you are willing to install net framework 4.5, it simply means either you are facing some issues running a software, or you need it as a pre-requisite for downloading a program from the web.

We often face the situations, where we need to download net framework 4.5 on our systems otherwise the program fails to run and we see an error message saying net framework 4.5 download is required.

Such issues arise since the software we try to get are built on the .net platform. And those programs which are built on .Net framework, can’t run without the .net framework.

To run such programs, .net framework essentially needs to be there on your computer to provide them with the necessary functionality they require to running smoothly.

And if you are a programmer, .Net framework can be an utterly useful tool for you to develop programs and applications. Its gives you a secure environment and easy drag and drop interface to develop applications.

No matter what your purpose of getting .net framework is, we will go through a step by step guide to installing .Net framework. Nowadays, new windows like windows 8 and above come with pre-installed .net frameworks but if you are using windows 7, then you will have to install it by yourself.

But if you already have .net framework 4 installed on your computer and you want to upgrade it to 4.5, then let me tell you, once you install .net framework 4.5, your previous version of .net will be overwritten.

And if at any point of time you want it back, you’ll have to download .net framework 4.0 again. So, if everything is clear to you, we shall move to the guide!

How to Install Net Framework 4.5 in Windows 7

Before we start downloading and installation procedure, your computer needs to fulfill certain criteria. So what are those criteria, let’s figure out!

System Requirements:

Your computer needs to fulfill the following criteria in order to Install net framework 4.5.

#Operating system requirements:

To run the .Net framework smoothly on your computer, you, at least, need to have Operating system Windows 7 with Service Pack 1. Since we are here to learn the installation procedure on windows 7, I’m assuming you already have that! And below is the list of supported operating systems.
  • Windows Vista SP2 (x86 and x64)
  • Windows 7 SP1 (x86 and x64)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (x64)
  • Windows Server 2008 SP2 (x86 and x64)

#Hardware Requirements:

  • To install net framework 4.5, you need to have 1 GHz or faster processor.
  • Minimum 512 MB of RAM is compulsory to have.
  • Since .net frameworks consumes a lot of hard drive space. So, minimum 850 MB of available hard disk space is a must, if you are willing to have the .net framework on your computer.
  • In order to install the .net framework, 2 GB hard drive is also mandatory.

#Internet Connection

Yes, internet connection is also mandatory in order to install the .net framework. If you don’t have it, forget about the installation!

If your system fulfills all the above-mentioned criteria, then read the below installation guide and get the .net framework on your computer. But one thing, there are two ways you can install the framework on your computer.

The first way is to install the framework directly from the Microsoft website i.e. web installer, and another way is to download the setup file first, and then install the framework like a usual software.

Both ways are easy, you can follow any of them as per your suitability. I’ve described below the second method i.e. installation through the setup file.

Step 1. First of all, you need to download the setup or installer file for the .Net framework 4.5. For this, click on this link, navigate to the location on your computer where you want to download the file and click on the save button.

How-To-Install-Net-Framework-4.5-in-Windows-7

Since the installer file is very small in terms of size, so within few seconds the installer file would be downloaded. And you will see a file named dotNetFx45_Full_setup.exe.

Step 2. Once the installer file is downloaded, navigate through it on your computer and double-click on it in order to begin the installation. Alternatively, right-click on it Run as administrator.

Step 3. As sooner you click on the .net framework setup file, you’ll be prompted to allow the program to make the changes on your computer, since the program is authentic, click on Yes! Otherwise, the procedure will be discarded right at the moment.

Step 4. Now rest of the installation process is exactly similar to other Softwares. On clicking the Yes button, you’ll be prompted with the agreement window.

Read the terms and condition(I know you won’t, no one does :P) and accept the license terms by checking the box and click on the Install button to begin the installation process. If there is any confusion, please refer to the below screenshot!

Step 4. Now do as directed on your screen and follow the instructions carefully.

Soon the installation will progress and you’ll see the following screen.

Don’t click on the Cancel button, otherwise, the installation would be canceled.

Step 5. Now once the installation is complete, you will see a screen similar to the following. Just click on the Finish button and you are done.

Once the installation is complete, it is recommended to restart your computer. That’s it! Easy, right??

The .net framework consumes a lot of your hard drive space as I told you in the beginning of the guide, so it might cause you slower system, performance.

If so, you can easily uninstall the software. for this,

  • Click on start menu and go to Control panel.
  • There, search for the option Programs and Features and open it.
  • You’ll see the list of programs install on your computer. Scroll down and search for the program Microsoft.NET Framework 4.5.
  • Now click on Uninstall/Change button.
  • Confirm the process and net framework will be removed from computer.

How-To-Add-People-On-Snapchat

Before going to learn how to add people on Snapchat, let me give a brief introduction of Snapchat for those, who don’t know much about it.

Snapchat is a photo messaging application created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown. This app is a one of the most used and leading apps all over the world.

Snapchat is used to take pictures, record videos, add texts and communicate like any other social and messaging app. The photographs and videos, that are sent to other users are called Snaps.

Despite its being similar to other social and messaging app, there is something very different about the app. The snaps that we send over the Snapchat gets self-destroyed after the 10 seconds as soon as the receiver views them. Isn’t the feature very unique??

If you still want to know more about Snapchat visit the Wikipedia.

Since you are already a user of Snapchat, I don’t feel the need of going much deeper of it. Instead, I’m coming to our guide directly. Adding friends on Snapchat is very easy and just a few steps procedure.

You can add friends on Snapchat by searching their username(If you know their username) or you can find them from your phone’s contact list. I have shared both the ways to find friends on Snapchat let’s check them out in detail!

How To Add People On Snapchat

As I said its very easy for people to add on Snapchat. If you know the username of the friend you want to add on your Snapchat, then nothing can be easier than this. But if you don’t know the username, they need to be in your contact list.

Below, I have shared both the ways to add friends on Snapchat. Let’s head towards that.

Adding Friends Via Their Username

This is the most simple way to add people on Snapchat. The procedure is given below.

Step 1: First of all, open the app on your device and swipe down to find the option Add Friends. I have captured the screenshot for you. Have a look.

Step 2: After you tap over the Add Friend option, a new screen will open up. Which will have another two options Add by username and Add from Address Book. 

Here you will have to decide how would you like to add friends. See the below screenshot to understand better.

How-To-Add-People-On-Snapchat

Step 3: If you know the username of your friend then simply without thinking much click on the first option that is Add by Username.

Step 4: Once you tap over the Add by Username option, you will see a new screen where you will have to type the username of the friend you want to add on Snapchat. Have a look on the screenshot.

Tip: If you want any celebrities or famous person’s Snapchat username you can find that on their Instagram, Twitter, Facebook etc.

And if someone is friend with you on facebook or some other social media then you can ask their username on WhatsApp or facebook or via any medium you are connected through)

Adding Friends Using Phone’s Contacts

This is the another method to add friends using your contact list. If you have your friends already added in your contact list and you want to add him/her on your Snapchat then follow the below procedure.

Step 1: First of all, go to my contacts option by following the same procedure mentioned in step 1 and step 2 in the previous method.

Step 2: Now as you can see there are two options Add by username and Add from Address Book. You have to go to the second option that is Add from Address Book. 

Step 3:  Following the previous step, you will be redirected to the new screen. Where you will have to tap over the large Continue button from the bottom of the screen. You can understand it better if you view the screenshot.

How-To-Add-People-On-Snapchat

Step 4: After tapping on the Continue button, you will be asked to review its privacy policy before giving it permission to access your contacts.

The message will be saying “Snapchat would like to access your contacts. your contacts would be transmitted to our servers and used to find your friends“.  Just similar to the image I have shown below.

Step 5: As it is obvious, tap over Okay and you will start seeing your friends who are on Snapchat. You can add anyone appearing in the list by tapping on the ‘plus’ sign nearby to their name.

And for those who are in your contact list but are not on Snapchat, you can invite them by tapping on the invite button, Just like we invite friends on WhatsApp. Once they accept the invitation and install the app, you can start corresponding with them over Snapchat too!

With the last step, I guess now you have learnt how to add friends on Snapchat and how to add someone on Snapchat. But before starting the search for friends on Snapchat make sure they have apps installed on their phones, otherwise you won’t be able to find them on Snapchat.

If you use Snapchat online then the procedure would almost be same to add your friends. Simply you will have to go to Snapchat login online and follow up the procedure. Sometimes Snapchat online login is easier to find friends. If you have not tried it then you should try it once.

With this, we have reached the end of the article. I hope you enjoyed my article how to add people on Snapchat. If you have any query or doubt, drop the comment.
