It appears I've conquered the copyright issue!
Just for the heck of it, I went to see if my Mozart video still had that "matched third party content" stuff on it, and lo and behold those words are gone. So I disputed about five more of my videos with the same issue, and immediately those words were no longer there.
Hooray, hope those words stay gone... always nice when a dispute process works properly.
Yes, but I can't help feeling like it was too easy to do. But so far, as of today, the words are still gone and my videos are still intact.
At YouTube all my video recordings display vertically. Is that odd or what?
Hi David, I know - it's very impractical. You now have to scroll and scroll and scroll in order to see all your 'people's' activities. I actually deleted one of my subscriptions; it was a news site and they put up several videos every day and so that is all I saw on my home page. It's better now that I've 'unsubscribed' to them. I can always just go to their channel if I want to see if there is anything of interest.
Oooh, I'm on a roll...
...just now figured out how to get my 'friends' to show up on my homepage!
Wow, how did you manage that? And did you get the activity feed back?
I'd consider contesting the copyright thing, as it seemed to go fairly smoothly for you, but I have a few historical recordings on my channel which probably do consitute a breach of copyright, so I think I'll leave it as it is.
They've merged the 'friends' with the 'subscriptions'. You now have to 'subscribe' to your friends - at least the ones you want to see on your homepage activities. You are one of my 'friends' that I subscribed to, Andrew. Do you see that on your homepage - like did you get some kind of message that I subscribed to you? Here is the link that makes it easy to 'subscribe' to your 'friends'. http://www.youtube.com/subscription_manager/friends
This is how you are able to see your friends/subscriptions activities on your homepage. Your activity on 'your' channel shows up in the 'feed' tab on your personal channel.
