Some of you have been so kind as to ask for some samples of my progress in learning to play -

Since I don't have a digital video camera -
perhaps I can use the video option on my basic digital camera to do something-

Last night I tried it and my first effort was with indoor lighting (at night after work) -
it captured the audio but the video is too dark -
So, I'll play with that and see if I can add more light - or maybe do it outdoors.

I'm able to view the video file on my computer.
So once I get a decent file and save it on my computer -

What do I do next  in order to share it with you guys ?
I suppose I would upload it to a site of some kind and then give you a link to that site ?

Are there free sites where I can do that ?
What do you recommend ?

can you say "youtube"?
register yourself with a free account, and then upload it (also for free).
We're waiting...

yes, I CAN say 'youtube' -  bigrin
ok, so...I'll give that a try

I had not thought to go 'world wide' just yet....
but hey, I was once on America's Funniest Videos, ...so why not...sure, I'll try it.

The quality is going to be really bad because its just a cheap digital camera -
so it may look and sound like a cell phone sample !

I really would like to upgrade my computer, get a digital video camera, etc
but I somehow managed to spend what I had on guitars...
Can you say , 'SD-50'    ( and Pavan TP-30 )
I'm sure that never happens to anybody around here   whistling

I would start with just audio instead of video put my old junky computer will not work with the old
pc mike I've got. I downloaded audacity and tired it.

I'll check out reverbnation.com as suggested.

Your digital camera will work fine.
the youtube formatting will be the weakest link in that chain.
If you don't want it to be broadly watched by billions and billions of people, don't list any "tags". These are used by the search engine to bring up the file when someone searches on that particular tag word or phrase.
SD-50. Yeah, I can say it. (seems I've got one around here some place. Oh yeah, here it is.) Great guitar!

thanks Q, that's good to know...so I'll just share with the forum (at least for now).
When I can upgrade to some decent equipment then maybe share with others.

 +1

I've used the video clip mode on my now 6 year old digital camera and results are fine.  Even the cheapest of current crop of digital cameras can deliver video that is more than good enough quality for youtube sharing.  My tips though would be:

[1] Get some good lighting, a carefully aimed desk lamp or two will do the trick.

[2] You may have to have the camera directly in line with sound hole in front of you as mic on camera may not be that sensitive offline

[3] Don't try filming outside..... even in a very slight breeze the unshielded camera mic makes it sound like a hurricane is blowing and chirping birds seemed to be picked up better than guitars...  rolleye

[4] ...you will get "red light syndrome" and mess up when you had a piece down pat.... happens to us all.... just keep playing and let the camera run and go again without stopping and starting the camera... you'll relax a bit that way and you can use basic freebie video clip editors to chop out your best performance.

good luck and have fun

I NEED SOME MORE HELP GUYS ,,,,PLEASE....

1. I was able to use my adjustable desk light to get enough light to make a video
2. the sound does not start recording right away...about 5 seconds into the video it starts,
    I may need to get the camera closer to the sound hole as you suggest- I'll try it

FIRST PROBLEM-
I need a video editor so I can clean up my video before posting.
I tried microsoft Movie Maker - and in would not accept the VLC format file created by the camera.

IS THERE A FREE EDITOR AVAILABLE I CAN USE ?

NEXT-
I tried to UPLOAD my unedited file to YOUTUBE (yes, I was willing to let you see my mistakes)
but it failed. I suspect it was because of my slow internet provider speed -

but does anyone know if Youtube will accept a VLC file such as created by my camera ?

- thanks for any help
Larry
