    hi, just wondered if someone can answer a couple of questions:

    Is it important to fill in info like putting avatar etc in YT profile? If yes for avatar, do you need to use a real pic or can you use a pic of a boat or something?

    When you upload a video, is it necessary to create your own transcript? I see the transcripts for my videos are really weird and have no where near the words used in my video, sounds more like an alien talking gibberish :)

    Using an avatar is always a good idea and it can be anything related to your niche or for personal use otherwise.
    Transcript=Doesn't really matter.

    As far as benefits of using an avatar, it would only matter for branding. It wouldn't help for anything else, like rankings etc. Transcripts, no don't worry about it.
