You can find some tips HERE

And why is this here? Because a few folks asked.

And to be frank with you all even though I've given this advice out before when asked I don't see that anyone has ever followed any of it.

I also don't see any PVP channels that are racking up the views.
Or more importantly, view duration.

And yes I do think that there's a relationship there.

On a somewhat related note one guy making PVP videos that some folks don't like, or one guy creating a new channel for a certain style of PVP that some folks don't like is doing far more for the future of PVP in STO than another "who's the prettiest most special PVP flower?' thread.

Whatever else you may think of them, those are people that are sticking their neck out by creating content for the rest of us to enjoy, or to not enjoy as we see fit. I'm not expecting this forum to suddenly become a love fest but you do need to know that even those that /popcorn in the drama threads are doing harm. Likely even more harm as it just encourages that sort of behavior.

I've been there and here's a promise. It's a road you don't want to travel.

So cheers and happy flying my pretty flowers!

And if you DO want some insight into pvp videos you will find it in that link.

Well, in some vids i use talk from TS, but i like music more then narration. that's just me, and that's how i do it. some like my vids, some don't. I mostly try to capture group events im in, amd some personal playstyle montages.
Glad i got over 10k views on STO content. thanks all for feedback.

BTW Thissler. nice tutorial, I agree that videos need to be short as possible, or have diverse content if they are long. That's how i do it.
would like to know what you think of my vids.

I like the ones I watched! I subbed up today. I must say the first one I really watched was the HYT video. Was nice to see someone else using a torpedo to effect like that!

Seriously though it is plain to see that you put effort into your videos. Start using the FREE music that YouTube has for creators. Or subscribe to a music service like I do. The link for that is right on my channel.

The bonus for you? All that work you do gets to be yours. And I think you'll find you gain a broader appeal.
I must admit I really like the mix you did for your summer special video. Do you like that Virtual DJ? I have a access to a huge library of loops etc, just never found a program that a noob like me could use. Is your program something that plays well with loops?

And as far as a mic goes...not so much for me yet. The captioning is working well and as time goes on I see more people doing that as well. And has been said, I like the music!

Peace and thanks for reading folks. And check out my ship giveaway!

thx, and yes, I put some video/music editing effort when making vids.
Most of my music remixes don't get copyright strikes, some do for weird reasons from some AdRev "companies" which i have succesfuly disputed. (like last piece in Summer special which is Swan Lake from P.I. Tschaikowski from year of 1891. was claimed by some AdRev company. hilarious.)
Other times i get false copyright claims from unknown people.
For example in one vid i used quote from sylvester stalone from a movie which has been also used in some random exercise video and few unknown songs, once i had disputed one, the other claim came, but never from original owner. after i disputed 4 or more claims and more kept coming i deleted that video and it was a great match. it's a stupid sys in most part.

There are much more sto pvp and few battlefield and crysis videos on my channel besides HY and Summer special. What i have gathered from this few months of making STO PvP videos is that PvP people want to watch themselves first, or something new, or tight match.
Even more people like to watch new, yet unreleased ships from tribble.
But i don't like making long videos of me looking at stats of some ship.
STO vids that get most views are exactly those that describe some ship by regular guys that don't do PvE let alone PvP.


About VirtualDJ in which i mix music, it is very noob friendly and it's free. version 7 is better then 8 for raw real time mixing, although it's barebones.
I also use Audacity for some effects and adjustments, also i cut&edit it all in video editor as well.
It can get ugly when i start syncing soundFX and video with music flow on 8 or more channels.

I really like your animations in one vid when you explain importance of TT, cute

Thx for the feedback, and music advice, i appreciate it.
