Etho (born August 20, 1986), known by his YouTube name EthosLab, is a Canadian Let's Play commentator and an active member of the HermitCraft server (he was inactive until the second season, which then he began recording with Docm77). Etho has shared very few personal details apart from mistakes (For example his middle name is Clark - See Sky factory 2.5 episode #49) but Etho has confirmed that he works as a computer programmer. He began doing YouTube full time in mid-2010.
Etho has a popular Minecraft survival single-player series titled "Etho Plays Minecraft." He is notable for creating practical (and extremely complicated) redstone contraptions (For example the Etho hopper clock and Etho door). Etho has participated in Mindcrack UHC since Season 3, except Seasons 7, 12, 14 through 20, and 21. Etho was the winner of Season 8, having killed six other players.
Etho is no longer playing on the Mindcrack Server, and has, in turn, joined the Hermitcraft server. He is no longer inactive on the Hermitcraft server. Etho joined Mindcrack in 2011 and left in early 2015.
Etho joined the HermitCraft Server at some point during the beginning of 2015, with his first official HC Video being released on the 3rd March 2015. He was fairly inactive until the 2016 re-launch of the server when he started playing regularly again. He is always seen in episodes with Docm77, a fellow Minecraft YouTuber.
Some time ago, Etho compiled a selection of his favorite mods and put them together to start a new, modded, series. Although it occasionally crashes, Etho has enjoyed playing this pack, along with the enjoyment of his viewers. If you wish to download this pack that Etho made himself, simply go to one of his modded videos, look in the description, and you will find instructions on how to do it.
Modded Minecraft server for HermitCraft members in 1.10
Etho has two seasons of TerraFirmaCraft on his channel, the first one being very successful on his channel and showing the mod's tech tree as he discovered it. The reason why it ended is unclear (Edit: Etho recently announced the reason for ending the series in one of his 'Etho Plays Minecraft' Episodes). Season 2 of TerraFirmaCraft only recently began, with a better understanding of the mod. Etho has been able to rapidly progress through it. He is hoping to reach the end of the tech tree again after several updates and changes to TerraFirmaCraft by the mod's developers.
Team Canada (Etho, VintageBeef, and PauseUnpause) started a Sky Factory Series and has been quite successful. Sky factory is a modded survival challenge where you start off with a Skyblock Theme and attempt to accomplish quests/achievements The series is only recently been developed and Etho uploads once every two days. In the latest episode (#49) he leaked his middle name - Clark.
Ark Survival Evolved
A game of taming and fighting dinosaurs, Etho has been working on this series for some time now. He is currently posted about every time there is a new update in the developmental stages of development. He is very interested by this game, and has been playing it for a considerable length of time.
Etho started playing this game, and it has now become his 3rd most popular active series on the channel, each video usually gets over 150,000 views.
Etho's Minecraft skin is based on the character Kakashi Hatake from the Japanese manga and anime franchise Naruto. In episode 234 of his LP, he revealed that he chose the Kakashi skin because it was one of the most detailed skins at the time (even though there are better versions nowadays, he still hangs on to this version). He has never changed his skin.
