I've uploaded over 40 videos onto youtube since September and a minority of them have come with commentary. I'd like to know if my commentary is any good or if my videos are better off without me talking over them. There's this Final Fantasy video I uploaded a while back which has commentary:

Perhaps you could tell me if my commentary is any good or if it's poor? It's useful for me to know because that way I'll know whether or not I should do commentary for future videos. Please be honest.

The commentary is just fine. Much easier to listen to then some of the more popular commentators on youtube. What you SHOULD focus on, though, is getting a TV tuner card.

Yes! Your voice sounds very nice and you speak clearly.

Can't beat a southern English accent. :)

Yeah, it was good! Clear and enthusiastic, too. A lot better than half the annoying mumbly YouTube videos out there :p

I liked the video you posted here, just like I enjoyed your Barkhang Monastery videos way back when. Your style is very direct and I like that you actually talk about the game you're playing, versus going off on tangents about random things that your viewers wouldn't have any clue about...unlike other game commentators on Youtube.

The only thing I would do now is focus on jarekhanzelka's advice.

What does a TV tuner card do?

What does a TV tuner card do?

It stops you recording vids by pointing a camera at a TV screen (which always looks pretty bad). A tuner card is a bit of PC hardware, something you can plug your console into and capture video properly using your PC.

I won't be doing many more videos so it probably won't be necessary.

Your accent is definitely easy on the ears, but like others have said - get a capture card! :vlol: Knowing myself, I tend to click away from videos that have been recorded off-screen. :p
