I bought this book in hopes it would clue me in on just how I could begin streaming my homemade harmonica music videos on the "YouTube" upload.
It wasn't long (a few pages) before I realized this book is all I'll need to be a great success. Needless to say, This really got me excited and into it.
YouTube for DUMMIES has tuned me in, therefor I'm no longer a YouTube Dummie. "Smile" and happy.

I mean ya the book helps you get views and such and how to make an account but youtube is pretty simple just type in a random search or a specific video stream and pick from thee thousands of choices pretty simple if you dont get what your looking for well just try again or look at something else. If you want to also make a account just go to sign in create account put in details make videos on a camera then take out sd card in camera simply slide it into your computer sd slot. Then aa file will ask for permission to open your sd card click yes take video files from the memory card place it in your upload slot and it will automaticly start uploading. Well now if you want to subscribe or like and favorite each video has a like and dislike button and at the top theres the subscribe button.enjoy my youtube learning review this is like a sample or the whole book.

You can litterally put lyrics to a song in youtube and find what youre looking for... and ironically i reckon its not voice activated so if youre literally dumb, you are in the clear my friend.
