In which I slowly learn how to make game videos.

I’ve been experimenting at making game videos. Beneath is my first attempt. Intended to be the first in a series cataloguing my Minecraft adventures, it did not go terribly well, either from a gaming or technical point of view. Playing in widescreen has resulted in Youtube surrounding my video in a black box. I shall need to figure out how to avoid that before I have another attempt at Minecraft episode 1! I should probably have hit the delete button, but it would be a shame to waste it!!

I’ll scout out a map with a good-looking start point before I start recording next time too!

Edit: Figured out how to upload in widescreen, and get Youtube to recognise it! It’ll go all the way up to HD quality if desired. I even added a hideous caption. Here’s the 2nd attempt! For fun, it’s using the beta Youtube iframe embed code.

So, with that figured out, I guess I don’t have any excuses to not make more!
