I freely admit it, I am a total noob when it comes to Youtube. Every time I stream and let it autoload to Youtube but then the video is on the blurry side and looks very amateur. I don’t stream on Twitch or Youtube to be famous or try and earn a living. I am doing it for fun and the experience. It is something that I watched and decided that I would like to try. There is one catch, I don’t want to be a noob forever. I want to produce better videos and streams because what is the point of doing something if you don’t want to get better.
I truly have no idea what to do or what to look for. There are so many products out there and I am not sure what functions I need to look for. Using freeware seems too easy, I don’t think I can get what I need that way. Again, I am not trying to make a living but it would be nice for my videos to look more professional. Youtube has a ton of videos about free video editing software but I am not sure who to trust when it comes to advice. Are there many being honest and truthful or are they just out to get views and bump up their monitization? I feel like I am running blind and hoping not to hit anything.
Questions, Questions, and more Questions
- I would like a logo but at what point do I look for one? It seems like early on, it could be a waste if it doesn’t work out. What do they cost and do they also come in some sort of video format to put on my videos?
- When do I look into getting a nice (not necessarily expensive or over the top) microphone? I am currently using the one attached to my headphones and it sounds like that.
- Mentors or a help channel! Is there such a thing out there that only wants to help others or do they all charge for their services?
- How do you gain viewers when you are a heavy, bald, middle aged male? Can I ever expect to gain more than 2-10 viewers a stream?
- How difficult is it to gain viewers playing multiple games compared to just one or two?
I am worried that the answers to most of these questions will be similar to how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop.
