This guide will help show you how to.
2)Converting the video and music:
3)Edit the video:
4)Upload the video on YouTube:
5)Embed the video on the forum:
1)How to record video:
a) To record I use “Debut Video Capture Software” by NCH Software. (nchsoftware.com) Please note this is not free but you can try it for 15 days.
b) Once you have your video you can use the video play back on Debut to capture any screen shots you may want to later add to your video by simply copying and pasting into a paint program.
c) Please also note when you record you will experience some added lag and you can also record sound however I found that the sound quality is very poor so I replace it with music.
2)How to convert the video and music:
a) You may need a video converter to convert the video file to a .mpg file, I use “Prism Video Converter Software” also by NCH Software. (nchsoftware.com). Please note this is not free but like Debut you can try it for 15 days.
b) You may need an audio converter to convert the audio file to a .wav file, I use the webpage “media.io” as you can upload your song and download it in the new format. (No need to download any program)
3)How to edit the video:
a) To edit the video I use “Windows Video Maker” at this point you can edit video scenes, add and edit screen shots or music and add effects like fade.
b) Any screen shots, pictures and music you want to add I would recommend you create before you start to edit your video.
c) Once you have the video edited I would recommend you view the video in Windows Video Maker to make sure you have not missed anything you wanted.
d) I would also recommend that you save the Windows Video Maker as a project file if you have to go back to edit.
e) With Windows Video Maker export your project to a .wmv file to upload.
4)How to upload the video on YouTube:
a) You upload the video on YouTube as you would upload any video.
b) Please note some music you may have used can be blocked by YouTube and you may have to replace the music. (This is why you save the Windows Video Maker project file to edit)
5)How to embed the video on the forum:
a) To embed the video from YouTube onto the AO forum you must first use a webpage for the embedding information. http://www.tools4noobs.com/online_tools/youtube_xhtml
b) Copy the full YouTube link and enter into YouTube embed code generator then enter.
c) You must then use the line of code that is between the " ".
d) Once you have the embedding code go to forum.ao.igg.com use the flash button to enter the embedding code and submit.
I hope this helps and it would be nice to see some new videos.
