I’m kind of ashamed to be writing about all of this, because of how much I have talked about it in the past. Oh, I’ll be streaming this or that, which I have but I’ve never taken it seriously enough to purse it further. Well, not as much as my writing of course. I wish I could explain it better than this, but this is all I got for now. Do I have plans for the future and such? Of course I do, but I’m taking it a few steps at a time to ensure I don’t screw anything up. I don’t want to lose focus on what I want to do the most, and is that pretty much dish out quality content again and again. I don’t want anything done without my 100% attention to detail.
With that all being said, it arises a new question for me to ask myself. “Am I doing the right thing?”. That is a very broad question to be asking myself. Even today I’m questioning myself on streaming and video content. I’m pretty good at hardware stuff, but when it comes to software… I’m no good. I’ve tried using OBS, and I still have an open subscription to Xsplit, but I barely know how to use both of them and it worries me a lot! I have a few days off a work this week, and I plan on doing a ton of research about it. By research is like reading guides, and watching videos, and taking a lot of notes.
What I am thinking of doing is basically this… Every time I play a game I am reviewing, whenever I am playing I will just stream it. As a sneak peek, if you currently watch the stream, you will see the next game I review. Nobody really watches the stream as of now, so I get to test out settings without revealing anything to much. Yay me. It’s all about perspective! So, basically as of today whenever I am gaming on my PC, I will be streaming. I will configuring settings and such, until I get everything perfect. I think right now I will be using Xsplit Gamecaster, which I like the whole setup/layout and the simplicity of it all. Plus, the (BRB) graphics I have played around with is kind of fun!
Two more problems I would like to talk about before I wrap it all up… What exactly should I be doing when I streaming? Do I need to be myself, along with commentating? It’s a whole new world for me basically. I think eventually I will find my groove as time goes by, let’s hope sooner rather than later of course. I think this problem will be solved in due time, and I shouldn’t worry to much about it, am I right?
The second problem arises… YouTube. Should I upload my streams to YouTube, or try my best to edit for highlights? I know very little about editing software so that would be a whole new world. I know very little, to nothing about editing software, and video stuff in general. I guess to prevent these problems, I should just take baby steps, and let it flow you know. That’s just how I need to approach this situation, and future situations about this stuff. I am super excited about all of this though, it’s a brand new world. I’m hoping my readers of previous series, and current ones will watch in and enjoy the process live with me.
It’s going to an insane, long ride… I hope the people who are reading here and on http://www.mmorpg.com are ready for the ride. It’s gonna be fun! Cheers!
