We will be doing the streaming stuff for the DVDs via youtube. For those that purchased it via the kickstarter, the idea is that they tell me their youtube account and I give that access. Somebody asked me HOW to create a youtube account.
Anybody have any advice on how to create a youtube account in 2013?
They request a lot of info now to create an account. I wasn't comfortable giving google all that info so I found there are ways to do it without providing it. There are YT videos about setting it up without giving up all your data.
I actually remembered that I had an old Gmail account that I didn't use. It was set up years ago before all this data collecting crap. I was able to use that to set up the new YT account.
As a side note, how the hell could you set up a YT account if you had no phone number? Certainly there are people who don't have one right? Seems like an unneeded step to me.

Yeah. It seems that each time I log onto YouTube, they pop up a window trying to get me to switch my youtube account to my gmail account.
If I did that, I could probably expect to get some unwanted email every time I posted a comment @ You Tube.
I already get enough spam without putting my google mail name on everything I post online.
They also ask me for my phone number so they can text me if I need to 'recover' my password.
They're NOT getting it.
That is the main reason I will not try Google Chrome.
They already know too much about me...they're not getting my browsing history too!
