“My First MINECRAFT Video!” by Richard F. Yates

Hey folks, I’ve finally taken the plunge and entered the challenging world of video game play through videos… (That sounded weird. Let’s try it again.) I recorded a video of me playing Minecraft, starting from day one and trying to survive! I’m really bad at the game, so that’s kind of fun. I also talk a bit, but I’m nervous, so I’m talking pretty fast and not always making a lot of sense… But HEY! It’s my first try…

PLUS, I really don’t know what I’m doing with either the game OR technically, especially with the video capture junk. It’s all a big experiment. It was fun, though, so that’s something!

Here’s the video, if you want to see it:

And here’s a STEEM related question: Why did I use YouTube instead of D-Tube to post my video? The simple answer is LAZINESS! I already have a YouTube account set up—I’ve uploaded half a dozen stupid videos, which have about two views each—and I didn’t want to have to learn a whole new system…yet. I might try shifting to D-Tube, eventually, once I get more comfortable with the whole VIDEO experience. I’m still new—and I’m obviously REALLY bad at it. (Most of my videos look like Abstract-Expressionist paintings come to life, what with the low quality. I’ve never been able to afford REAL equipment, so most of the videos I’ve uploaded either came off my phone or old digital cameras…)

Still, if the experiment goes well enough, I might try to EXPAND MY HORIZONS: Get some better equipment, maybe acquire some REAL video editing software (although that might involve getting a newer computer because mine ain’t that powerful), and yes, even trying out D-Tube. I’m dabbling at the moment, but we’ll see where stuff goes! DEAL???

Okay, now I have to go put away a bunch of laundry, make the bed, hang some artwork in the living room, and start making dinner… A Dad’s duties are never done!!!
