Frequently Asked Questions
Q. My login doesn't work

A. Try refreshing the page. If that doesn't work, try clearing the cache in your browser.

Q. How do I UNSUBSCRIBE from a Playlist?

A. At the bottom of the Playlist's page there is a CANCEL SUBSCRIPTION button.

Q. How do I PUBLISH my video after uploading it?

A. Click on your channel's name under account settings.

Under the Videos tab click "Edit Video" on the video you wish to publish.

Then check the box "Publish" next to the purple SAVE button at the bottom.

And then click SAVE again and your video will be published.

You will see that it says "Published: Yes" now after you close the edit box (with the X in the upper right corner).

Q. Stripe is not available in my country. Can I signup another way?

A. HowTubes.TV is not available in every country. And our payment processor Stripe, does not service every country.

However, there are two ways to earn through HowTubes.TV. Using the site's Seller Tools does require a Stripe account. Posting your videos for Free gives you the opportunity to join our future ad-share program and earn with AdSense (in the same way you would on YouTube). See Terms for more details.

It has been brought to our attention that Stripe is not available in Africa. So we are currently in discussions with DPO, an African payment processor. 

We hope to connect with them soon. If that does not happen, we will actively seek another payment processor that can service Africans.

We are also seeking to add more payment processors in the future for other countries not served.

Please check back for updates on this issue.

Q. I didn't receive my Password Reset email.

A. First try checking your Spam folder. If it is there, be sure to mark it Not Spam.

If it is not there, try waiting 10-15 minutes as some email servers add a delay for security reasons. 

Q. The site is not showing up (or showing up in a weird way).

A. It might be your internet connection. If refresh doesn't work, turn your device completely off. Then restart it. It should show up now.

Also, HowTubes.TV is not available in every location due to local restrictions.

Q. I've noticed that some videos have more likes than views. How can that be?

A. Staff reviews. When one of our staff views a video it doesn't show up as a view. But they can still LIKE it. Think of these as "Staff Picks".

Q. Can I put my channel on HOLD?

A. Yes. All channels are ENABLED by default. But you can DISABLE it whenever you choose to, for however long you wish.

Go to your channel settings and check the DISABLE channel box. When you are ready to have it back, just uncheck this box.

Q. Can I make my channel PRIVATE?

A. Yes, you can. Go to your channel settings and click the box that says "Hide Videos from Search Results".

Once you have done that, you can give people your channel's url and they can go directly to it. Only those people with your channel's url will be able to access it.

Q. When I try to Follow a channel it just "spins".

A. First try refreshing the page. If that doesn't work, you may not have finished completing your registration. Make sure you have verified your email and have created a Display Name.

Q. My video upload just vanished. Where is it?

A. No worries. If you switch tabs during an upload it will look like it is no longer there, when you go back to it. Just begin again and you will see your edits are still there. And when you hit UPLOAD VIDEO again, it will take you right back where you left off. For instance, it might now say 60% uploaded. Then just wait for it to finish.

Q. My videos are not appearing under "Just Uploaded" on the front page.

A. Mature rated videos do not appear on the front page because our front page ad network will not allow it.

Mature videos have their own mature content friendly ad network, that appears on their viewing pages.

Q. When I try to upload my own thumbnail, it just spins when I hit save.

A. After you click save, close the edit page. Your thumbnail should be there. This is an issue with some devices.

Q. Does it cost to follow a channel?

A. No following is free and it allows you to receive a notification when that channel has uploaded a new video.

You may also subscribe to Playlists, some of which are a monthly recurring payment. These, however, are cancel anytime.
