How to post links in YouTube Comments?


Using Links with YouTube Comments


THIS POST IS OBSELETE. YOUTUBE NOW ALLOWS POSTING LINKS IN COMMENTS


YouTube doesn't allow posting Links in comments. When you do try to post one, you'll get the "Oops! Remove any web addresses and try again." error.

While there is no proper way to insert a link in YouTube comments, we can apply some tricks to get around with it:

1. Posting other YouTube video URL in comment

While commenting on some YouTube video, users might want to share links of other videos, the method that is used these days to do the same is to post the /watch part. ie. /watch?v=N-xHcvug3WI of the URL for the following case:


The URL can be posted by removing the initial protocol part (ie. http://www. part) and replacing the slash / with backslash \. The link that results will be:
youtube.com\watch?v=N-xHcvug3WI
instead of 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-xHcvug3WI

Browsers these days will fix the slash and backslash error, and proper link will be generated and used, thus other users will be able to copy-paste and use your links without problem.


2. Posting Webpage URL in YouTube comment

While YouTube can't detect the use of sub-domain names (yourname.something.com/) in the comment body, it can detect the use of domain names (www.yourname.com).

To use a custom domain URL, you can shorten the link with Google URL Shortener

And then replace the slash / with a backslash \ and post the link:
goo.gl\9dpXM3
instead of
http://goo.gl/9dpXM3

Post your URL in YouTube comment

After you have done this, you can start posting your link and it will work without problem with copy-paste:

GAME DEVELOP
GameDevelop is a FREE, Open-Source game creation software, allowing you to make games for the web (HTML5) or for Windows and Linux, Android and iOS (through Intel XDK). No programming or coding skill is required! It is easy to use and powerful enough for advanced users.


Events System
Game Develop also features the Events System, which is based on a simple principle: the actions of an event are executed if its conditions are filled:
Actions allow to modify an object, change a variable, change the scene...
Conditions can test the position of an object, the value of a variable, if a key is pressed...
It is also possible to use comments, links pointing to other events, or sub events. Extensions can provide their own events, like functions or loops : Events are so powerful that they can be used to reproduce any structure of a code written in an ordinary programming language.

Compile to Native code 
 
Unlike others, GameDevelop compiles your project to Machine code. GameDevelop is the only game development tool that does not add an arbitrary layer between your project and the machine. And nobody can turn back a compiled game to its original source file so as to steal your creation.

The GameDevelop IDE is available for Windows and Linux.

BLENDER 3D


Blender has its own built in Game Engine that allows you to create interactive 3D applications or simulations. The major difference between Game Engine and the conventional Blender system is in the rendering process. In the normal Blender engine, images and animations are built off-line – once rendered they cannot be modified. Conversely, the Blender Game Engine renders scenes continuously in real-time, and incorporates facilities for user interaction during the rendering process.
Yo Frankie!
The Blender Game Engine oversees a game loop, which processes logic, sound, physics and rendering simulations in sequential order. The engine is written in C++.  Read more >>

LIST OF 3D GAME ENGINES | WHICH GAME ENGINE SHOULD I CHOOSE? | WHICH GAME ENGINE IS EASY?

Acer Latop Touchpad stopped working | MyTechSite


ACER LAPTOP TOUCHPAD SUDDENLY STOPPED WORKING | ACER LAPTOP TOUCHPAD STOPPED DETECTING


If your Acer Laptop Touchpad suddenly stopped working, press the Function button (Fn) and the F7 button at the same time.


The Fn + F7 is the Kyeboard shortcut in the Acer Laptops for toggling the Touchpad On/Off.


New Acer Users unknowingly press this combination, thus triggering the Touchpad Off. In the confusion and panic, they get into "Touchpad Driver" downloads when it's actually not the case.

How to Fix Acer Aspire Laptop Monitor Black Screen Problem? MyTechSite


THE STEPS INVOLVE PHYSICALLY TAKING APART, A PART OF THE LAPTOP OUT, WHICH CAUSES YOUR WARRANTY TO BE VOID.  YOU UNDERSTAND THE RISKS INVOLVED AND AGREE TO FOLLOW THESE STEPS UNDER YOUR OWN RISKS. THE BLOG AND/OR IT'S AUTHORS CANNOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE/S CAUSED BY FOLLOWING THIS ARTICLE. WE CAN NEITHER GUARANTEE ANY ACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION NOR CAN WE BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY INFORMATION CONTAINED HEREIN

THE ARTICLE SPECIFICALLY DEALS WITH ACER ASPIRE 4710 AND MAY OR MAY NOT BE APPLICABLE FOR OTHER SERIES OF ACER LAPTOP

ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP SCREEN FLICKERS DURING AND/OR AFTER STARTUP | ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP SCREEN GOES BLACK DURING STARTUP | ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP SCREEN GOES WHITE DURING STARTUP

First of all, the Black Screen does not necessarily mean there's a problem with your Laptop Screen. There are settings you can choose from - to dim and/or turn off your Display (under your Power Settings).
For Acer Aspire 4710 Laptop, you can turn your Acer Laptop Screen On/Off by pressing Fn + F6 (may be different according to Series, please read your Acer Laptop User Manual).


The Black/White Screen Problem during and/or after powering the Laptop (including the same during Reboot) in generally a problem with your Laptop Screen Wires. These Thin and Small wires transmit the data.
While the same works fine during purchase, overtime, these somehow tend to be loose and your wires do not get connected as they should be.

Acer Laptop White Screen problem
This is generally confused for some sort of physical problem with the display, the immediate and only solution
 to which might seem to be the Screen Replacement. Adding to the confusion is the fact that it might work when the user moves the Laptop Screen when the Black/White Screen is being displayed, thus suggesting some physical problem, pointing to Screen Replacement as the only solution.

Now pay attention to the section of the Laptop as shown in the picture:



As you can clearly see, there is a small gap seperating the main body Section (containing the KeyBoard part) of the Laptop from the section containing the Power Button.
The Section containing the Power Button can be separated from the Main Body Section of the Laptop ie. it's partly detachable (except for the Wire that it's attached to)

Things you will need:
  1. a small pocket knife or very thin object to open the "locks"
  2. a piece of paper

WAIT, CLAM DOWN, DON'T SCREW IT UP

Proceed calmly, don't get too excited, there is a big problem with that Section there. The Power Button there IS attached physically with the Main Section, it's so because the "Thin and Small wires" that we talked about earlier in this Article is the wire connected there, so this means - If you pull out with a force, chances are it (the Wire) will snap. This may result in the permanent damage of your Laptop.

OPEN IT UP

Before you start opening your Laptop physically, dis-connect your Laptop from any Power Source (Dis-connect your Battery too) then  press and hold the Power Button for about 30 seconds to ensure discharge of power.

Take a small Pocket Knife (or something that you can use instead of it) and gently push it from the "Gap" (do the same for the Gap from it's sides) and gently open the upper Section, just enough to get it separated, DON'T PULL IT IN ANY DIRECTION. Pay attention to the Laptop's Power Section, observe (from all angles possible) as to how the Wire is connected with  the two Sections, gently invert the Section, WITH THE WIRE BELOW JUST INTACT.

THE WIRE LIES NEAR THE POWER BUTTON SO DON'T PULL IT, OPEN IT JUST ENOUGH TO GET IT DETACHED.

IT'S ADVISED THAT YOU PROPERLY OBSERVE THE PICTURES IN THIS ARTICLE TO GET A GOOD PICTURE OF HOW THINGS ARE CONNECTED IN THERE. THIS  MAY PREVENT YOU FROM MESSING YOUR LAPTOP UP

So let's take a look at the Wire:


Now take a look at it in more detail:


The Section that is supposed to be detached is marked inside the Red box, the black border makes the immediate area (in inverted position).

Pressing the Wires

At the Left Side of the "Wire" that we talked about, there's another wire, it's color is black and it seems somewhat "fatter" or bigger. Now look at the picture below:


Put a folded paper on it so that it'll be "pressed" when the cover is put back on. Now, get the Section re-attached with the "hooks" (or "locks") properly in place, re-connect your Battery and Power the Laptop up, now your Laptop Screen should display properly without any Screen defects.
