Ok ill try explain this.

The video was live streamed, similar to how something can be live on TV. It is shown in real time.

But someone recorded this livestream, similarly to how you could record a show off the TV. So now its a video.

Also on the internet, a live stream can become a video when it ends, meaning that someone can go back and watch it as a video after it has stopped being streamed.

Hope that explains it.

Replace windows / Mac os with a Linux variant

Replace ios / android with android that doesn't run google play services. Eg lineage os or similar

Replace chrome with Firefox, on desktop and mobile

Use ublock origin (Firefox addon)

Use cookie autodelete (Firefox addon)

Https everywhere (Firefox addon)

Avoid ghostery

Replace software with open source equivalents if possible

Replace Dropbox / Google drive with syncthing / owncloud / nextcloud

Replace whatever messenger you use on mobile with signal

Delete Google / Facebook / Instagram/ etc accounts you don't need. And if you feel you do need them, try going a week without them and seeing how bad it is.

If you must have a Google or Facebook account, don't sign in on a mobile app, just use a browser.

Dont use the epic games store (im sure steam also collects data, but epic are particularly bad)

Tails is very cool if you need that kinda thing (search it up)

On android, get the f droid store, everything there is open source and more private

Check android apps for trackers on exodus privacy

If you can, deny apps contacts and location permissions or even internet access entirely if there is no reason for them to have it.

Dont give services your phone number unless you must

Use burner email address for accounts you dont care about. 10minutemail or similar

Use something like keepass and have different passwords on all your accounts

Some vpns are better than others, and it can be very difficult to know if a company is lying to you about the service they provide. Eg no logging is impossible to prove and even if they did prove it, nothing stops them implementing logging in the future. Check https://thatoneprivacysite.net/vpn-section/

Eg you post canary's before the date. So if you post monthly, set the date to be a month and a half in the future, or maybe 2 months. You aren't expected to do the canary on that date you set, just any time before it.

Also on the topic of suggestions, include a timezone for the date.

Subnautica if it counts. You can get killed and are technically able to kill other creatures. But the game is balanced around surviving and escaping rather than killing.
