What is HowTo-Video?
How do videos get featured?
Featured videos can displayed by default based on the number of hits and rating a particular video receives or directly assigned by the website administration. A user cannot assign a featured video, as this would result in every user featuring his own videos and bloating this way the relative content pages of the website.
The website keeps asking for password and login even though I put in my username and password correctly.
This could be due to the way cookies are set to be handled on your system, so here are the steps to check your cookies for your browser.
1. Go to the Tools menu
2. Choose "Internet Options"
3. Select the "Privacy" Tab
4. Choose "Advanced"
5. First and Third Party Cookies should be set to "Accept".
The steps described above are for Internet ExplorerTM
, but should be similar for other browsers. In any case, we strongly reccomend using a modern, web standards-compliant open-source - based browser, such as Mozilla Firefox
and not a closed-architecture obsolete browser other companies may provide, because such pieces of software are often deprecated in terms of web standards support and usability.
