As far as I can tell, my computer can make Let's Play or Let's Try videos. It's just that pressing that record button, knowing that I have to use my voice, and knowing that the intention is to make said videos public, is really, really daunting! I thought doing something "easy" (A Heroes of Might and Magic II play with a hacked save file to showcase the awesome brokeness that is negative spell power) would be a good start, but, that doesn't seem to alleviate the anxiety.

Autotune is your friend ... seriously, I have the same issues. That said, it is only really bad if somebody from real-life recognizes your voice. Then, you get doubly embarrassed. Somebody I'll actually manage to do something and post it, cringing @ potential negative feedback.

Okay, so it's not recording my voice at all? I probably need a different settings, but I... I think I'm okay with not having to talk! Less stress, and all that!

Do an LP, just don't press record.

Yeah, just add some subtitles and you're good to go ...

Well, I can do this, at least?

Meep!

*Edit: Yeah, okay. I think I got this figured out. Will re-upload this in it's proper form, uh, eventually.

Alright, people this is it! My future in making videos relies solely in what responses this gets!

Well, probably not, but feedback would be nice.

It's an MP4 file that I uploaded to my locker. Unless that question was about something else?

So how do we even get a crack @ it?

From what I can tell, one could open that link in a new tab. It doesn't play right away (at least for me), so either wait for the thing to finish loading, or right-click and use the "save video as" option to watch it later.

OK. I figured out how to open it. Your link lead to a new tab with a Flash icon which click on. A rectangle appeared in the middle with no activity in sight. Thus, I used my FF DownloadHelper and downloaded the file and finally got to see the video using VLC.

Anyway, using my laptop's speakers (little or no bass response) with max volume, I felt your voice didn't come through very clearly nor loud enough compared to the game's music and sound effect. With headphones, I noticed there's a lot of background noise (a fan or static perhaps???) in the parts with no music or sound effects. It seemed to me clear that you were trying to en-un-ci-ate your words, which made them come out a bit sloooow. Those are my general observations ...

You'll probably get to hear my narration/comments once the Secret Santa gifts are revealed after X-mas. Unless, I decide to finally redo a LP! I posted a few weeks back with comments included before. Or maybe I won't this year.
