    Why you need a mixed category?

    With vBTube it is possible to comment and like videos wich are not added into your gallery. If a user comment or like a video in youtube browser, the video is going to your queue.
    Later you can start to add those videos into your gallery with one click. We think, if a video is getting a comment or a thumb up it should be interesting for other users too.

    The mixed category is very important to fetch videos from user profiles.

    If you don't want to use this feature, leave it empty!

    11. Create navigation one time:
