Hi :)
At a quick guess the person using the "Libreoffice" name on YouTube might be thrilled to elt TDF 
take over the name.  They probably set it up to give to TDF originally and then found a lack of 
interest at the time.

Howdy Tom,

Absolutely, if you want to start using it today that can happen.

I saw the conversation start and have been late getting into it.

Seriously, the account is ready for anyone that wants to work it - even
if you just have ideas of 'exactly' what you want to see there.

One item that I mentioned before, that is worth a follow up mention.
YouTube supports a non-profit page status, which would make it much
better for the foundations use, the web page discussing states that if
you have a US Tax exempt number sign up is via a web form. I think it's
worth someone, particularly someone who can knows someone in Google
directly, addressing the question of a special exemption of the US
requirement for TDF. Given the legal status in Germany it seems at least
worth an email.

Anyway, again if you want to do something specific with site, or anyone,
just let me know - right now that requires shared account credentials,
for a shared admin, which is acceptable for 2 or 3 people I think. The
non-profit status would be the way to go however..

Skipping everything to only say the most important: If I am not alone, I would try to do this, 
although I am not used to YouTube...

I have tried several search phrases to get only "what is LibreOffice", "about LibreOffice", etc., 
and keep getting info about how to do something or some "non professional" out-of-date video 
talking about LibreOffice.

Is there a link out there of an English language video for "introducing LO" to the general public 
and letting people know why it would be a good alternative to MSO?

There is one from "nixiedoeslinux" that states MSO is 2 years old and there is LO to use.

There is a user called "LibreOffice" but that set of videos seems to show "personal views" by a 
single person, not from TDF/LO.

If the LibreOffice user is not associated with TDF, there might be some problems with getting an 
"official LibreOffice" channel, since there already is a Libreoffice "user".

Still, I would like to find a good more-professional video that is from TDF/LO people telling 
potential users why LO is a good options for them, instead of buying MSO.  It would be nice to 
have it and link to it from the different TDF/LO pages that are geared to provide the initial 
information about LO to the potential users.

The video does not have to be a high-end type of production, but some good audio and video of a 
computer display showing LO in use and maybe some "presentation" style of information about the 
advantages of LO as a users default office suite.
