Bulgaria, as some of you may know, is a country in east Europe, near black sea. It has a population of just over 7 million people. Since it was a part of the Soviet Union, it had to transition to a capitalist state and after joining the European Union, certain measures have taken place so it can improve its economy and be worthy as a member.Continue reading
Some of you may have noticed, there is a fight for fame in the most used on-demand video streaming website – YouTube. The currently most subscribed celebrity – Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (PewDiePie), may soon be surpassed by the Indian music record label T-Series. Pew’s fans called everyone for action, to subscribe and keep him at the top place. That’s all fine, but when do you know it has gone overboard? Three days ago, I’ve received the following spam email from one of my hosting providers…
The latest version of the Mozilla foundation browser – Firefox Quantum 63.0, introduces an issue with some websites, where even though there is a valid security certificate, it doesn’t load the page.
The below image shows a website that i usually access using Firefox. Other browsers like Edge and Chrome validate the certificate correctly and display the page.
Previously there was an option to add an exception and continue to the site anyway (which is also described on the help page), but in this situation it doesn’t exist, probably because the certificate is found as valid. While i do not know the source of this issue, the fix is very simple if you encounter it – click on the shield icon in front of the URL and “Clear Cookies and Site Data”. In the popup click OK after verifying the domain name – this will clear all temporary data in your browser for this website and open it clean, the next time you load the page.
In the beginning of this year, YouTube started rolling out a feature they called “Official artist channels”, meant to make it more easy to find content from your favorite artists.
However, while I was browsing, I stumbled upon this video from Lenka:
Only to find a surprise. I liked the song and I wanted to see if there are more like this on her channel… but the link didn’t lead to her channel.
From the screenshot, you can see that, instead, I was led to an empty channel owned by Sony Media Entertainment.
It seems that she was partnered with SME before, but cancelled her contract, so why is the “Official channel” still the now empty SME channel?
I’ve reported this bug on 24th of October 2018 and now, over a month later, it’s still not fixed.
Funny thing is that when embedded, the above video shows the channel name as “LenkaVEVO” while on the YouTube page it shows “lenkatv”.
If you search LenkaVEVO on Google, it will lead you to the correct channel.
YouTube, the community have been asking for some stability to the already existing features, before adding new ones.
