    These services have a long list of components, for example: The websites front end (UI) Media delivery stack (CDN etc.) Media ingestion and transcoding user management (both viewers and creators/admins) payment processes suggestion algorithms and I'm sure much much more. Some of these need very different skill sets. For web front end you might want to look at HTML, CSS & JS where as for media transcoding you might be looking at C++/Rust libraries. Are there one or two of these components that you are most interested in starting with? If you can narrow down what you are looking to learn first, we can hopefully be of more help.

    KVM & libvirt VS VirtualBox for Windows 10 VMs

    Virtual box has just released V6 with better Display driver support (I believe it is now very similar to VMWare): https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog-6.0#v0 Maybe it would be worth upgrading to see if you get much performance increase without too big a change?

    How much can you find out with a mac adress

    As it is a privacy concern, not a malicious process, I think we should be fine to discuss this. MAC address randomization is becoming quite common to stop WIFI providers from tracking individuals, it is a out of the box option in Android P: https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/03/08/android-p-feature-spotlight-per-network-mac-address-randomization-added-experimental-feature/

    Yeah, that is correct.

    How much can you find out with a mac adress

    MAC addresses are only transmitted within your local network so your ISP wont be able to see your Laptop/phone/PC MAC address. They will however be able to see the MAC address of your modem/router.

    How to make a Web Kiosk? PI time?

    This looks like an possible setup with a RPi and Chrome: https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-kiosk/ And very customisable if you want to make changes. Given you already have the RPi setup, it would be worth giving it a go.

    what programing language should you start with

    I learnt C++ and then moved to Python. There are some advantages to that, e.g. you learn about memory management and garbage collection. But if I was to do it again, I would pick up python first! It is a very personal choice and you will get lots of different opinions. The other way to look at it is to ask what area you want to get into? Web design/data science/robotics/embedded systems/video games/etc... And then pick the language that best suits that goal.

    Need Help! Wireless Audio Solution

    Do you need to use the PC as the source? Could you just plug an old phone in and play Pandora/Spotify/etc. from that? If you do need to use the PC as the source, you can stream over wifi using a old phone at the other end with the SoundWire app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.georgie.SoundWireFree)
  10. My PC (i7 6700 + 1050TI) pulls ~100W from the wall in normal use. So for 4 hours you need a 400Wh battery. This does not include screen so let's round up to say 500Wh. A quick google for a 500Wh portable UPS: https://lithiumbatterycompany.com/product/500wh-portable-lithium-ups-power-supply/ According to the specs this is 7.9LB (3.6KG)
  11. https://revealjs.com would be a good starting point. You would need to add time based transitions and the adverts.

    The POE is really simple - there is a POE adapter in the box, you plug network cable and power cable into POE adapter and then single network cable from adapter to the AP. (Top pic on here: https://www.ui.com/accessories/poe-adapters/)

    I've been really impressed with the Ubiquiti APs, have used in my own home and friends and always seen very good coverage.
