After wrestling with YouTube, I FINALLY have this video up and ready. Needless to say, I have learned a few important things from my first live-streaming experience:
- Do not play background music. Chances are it’s copyrighted, and YouTube will either restrict it or block it. Sorry, Salesforcers in Deutschland, this video won’t work for you. 😦 It also means the last few minutes of audio got muted forceably by YouTube, so I had to annotate it manually.
- Do not check your own stream on the same computer you’re recording on. It’ll pick up and audio and you’ll have two audio streams being recorded simultaneously. It’s kind of like a time machine, thanks to the 20 second delay, but not as cool.
- YouTube’s built-in video editor is OK. It works for what I need. Might need something more advanced someday, but for now, it’s good.
- Need more people in the chat! Had at least one person in the chat contributing, and it was a big help. Thanks lifewithryan!
So without further ado, here’s the video from last week, and look forward to more video coming soon!
