Here are five guidelines you must follow if you want to create a gaming channel and gaming videos.
1) PICK A GAME
First thing’s first and that is, pick a Game, your favorite game, the one you play better. Unless of course, you want to make money, in that case you need to choose the newest or most popular game, the one that is drawing the largest audiences. Competition is also important, there are so many millions of“Minecraft” videos that standing out on that space is virtually impossible. So choosing the right game is not always as easy as it seems.
2) CHOSE YOUR TECHNOLOGY
Secondly, you need to choose your technology, you need a potent machine with a lot of RAM memory and fast video processors, you need more than one monitor, good headphones and a good microphone to add your own comments. You need the video capture device if you are recording from a console such as a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. This device allows you to export the video output of the game into your computer, where you will conduct the production and postproduction as well as the distribution of your videos. There are lots of video capture devices in the market. Just make sure the one you buy is compatible with your console and that supports a microphone for live commentary.
When choosing a Microphone and Audio Accessories, find microphones, pop guards, and mic booms bundled together that can save you money and give you everything you need for professional recordings all in one package
When it comes to the computer, the right hardware is crucial for high-quality and efficient video editing. A couple of key considerations include: You’ll need a lot of RAM to process video, ample hard drive space, specially if your game is HD and you want your videos in high resolution. Many times, internal drives are not enough so you will need some external storage too. And video cards powered by processors like Nvidia. You may consider buying a gaming computer that comes packed with everything you need to stream your gaming.
3) GET A RELIABLE INTERNET ACCESS
You need a truly fast and reliable internet access, the more upload speed you have the better. The need for internet access is obvious, but a fast connection with good bandwidth is recommended specially if you want to live stream. But also for uploading your videos, some videos may get really big, in excess of 4 GB so without the adequate internet access, it may take you hours to upload a single video.
4) EDIT YOUR VIDEO AND CREATE YOUR FINAL PRODUCT
Once you have your image and sound, its time to edit your video. There are literally hundreds of options available, it’s probably a good idea to talk to other gamers and ask which programs they use to handle their streaming. When you publish videos to YouTube, make sure you avoid copyright issues by understanding the rules and restrictions that gaming companies impose if you want to use their product to create and even monetize videos. Careful also with the music you use in your video.
5) PROMOTE AND DISTRIBUTE
Once you have everything ready to go, it’s time to publish. As soon as that’s done, you can begin to promote your Gaming Video.
