YouTube Adding Tip Jar, Crowdsource Captions, and More at VidCon

x Bookmark Last week was VidCon – a conference for Internet Video creators. A great way for people to network and learn how to make their videos better. YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki was on hand and announced a bunch of great goodies for content creators. Fan Subtitles If you have fans that are willing to help, why not have them translate or transcribe a video. Turning this into a major wiki or crowdsource project, the fan subtitles option encourages people to help you expand your reach with subtitles in different languages.

How to Remove the Bounce In Your Podcast Studio

x Bookmark I was just on the community forums and someone was asking about room control for podcasting. As a musician, I’ve seen it all. Foam, egg cartons, carpeting, and more on the walls.  But what is the cheapest and aesthetically pleasing way to do it? I remember one time I went to a friends house to lay down some drum tracks. We weaved through the house into the basement to a room stuffed in the back corner. He opened the door to a room filled with burlap hung from the ceiling and floor. The burlap had couch foam inside...

Time to Clean Your Podcast Gear! How to Improve Microphone Contacts

x Bookmark Not too many people think about it, but after a few years of podcasting, I understand the importance of keeping the gear cleaned up. Especially if you run a mixer with effects rack. The realization of doing this post actually hit me two-fold. In the last couple weeks I noticed an issue in my gear where I would hear some static come through. I also talked with someone about the Behringer MDX compressor where people have noted problems while recording. I look at my mixer and it does have a layer of dust on the surface. The plugs...

Blue Microphones Nessie USB Microphone Review

x Bookmark I spent one week podcasting from the Blue Microphones Nessie USB microphone to get a true feel of how this microphone can work in a podcaster’s or videocaster’s rig.

Use a Selfie to your Podcast's Advantage 0

How To Use the Selfie to Your Podcast’s Advantage

x Bookmark The Sinatra song goes: When you’re smiling, when you’re smiling. Then the whole world smiles at you… Selfies are big business because you can capture the moment by pointing a camera at yourself. Watching social media I see a lot of people are doing the “Ellen Show selfie” hoping to break a record on Twitter. Unless they have Bradley Cooper taking the picture, Samsung hosting the photo, or Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey, or other major stars in it during a prime time event, you’ll most likely not hit that number. You WILL get noticed,...
