I am a content creator. But I find it very difficult to get an audience. I make my videos in Norway, and it seems that even though the title, my voice over comments, tabs and everything else is in English, those that watch my videoes are mainly from Norway and Europe. I'm not sure if YouTube checks the IP adress and show my video titles during search, more in Europe than the USA.
But continuing making videoes and being patient might be the way to proceed. As of now;
10 videos of my chess games during the Norwegian Chess Championship 2009 Class 5
6 videoes on how to start out using HTML
3 videoes on Programming in Java
1 on how to play chess (this is a series which is under development)
Now, putting out the tournament chess games for 2010, Class 4
In the beginning I used Windows Media Encoder.
Video nr 10 of the Championship 2009 was a pure video summary (and so far the most popular video) using Pinnacle Studio. For the HTML, Java and chess games for 2010, I use Camtasia Studios. And I believe I have the correct programs for making videoes. At least I feel comfortable with the programs I use. The only problems I have had, but so far overcome (partly), is getting the sound from the voice over comments to be a normal level.
It seems that the Programming in Java videoes will take over in popularity soon and more will come. I am thinking of doing the same with more mainstream programs like Windows 7. I haven't really got that many comments back on my videoes, so I am not sure if they are well received or not. But I try.
I have no real goal with this yet. Maybe in a few years become a YouTube partner, and since all my videoes are educational and more will be added, it might look okay on a CV if I ever try to make a career change over to computers.
