Still playing with vlogging, and now I need your help!

Help me, Obi-wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.


  1. For this I am more like Jar Jar - totally useless. I will say this video looks better than previous ones though. Liked your audial impressions of the special effects. :)

    1. Thanks :)

      Did you view on your phone or a larger, more sophisticated device? My Obi-Wan CALLED me yesterday to talk about frame rates & resolution, and he made good points. Stephen and I are UNABLE to view this (faster, more resolved) video on our phones, because it just buffers endlessly without ever playing. So... I guess I go back to inferior quality if I plan to video blog. :/

  2. I viewed it on my computer at work. Shhh! Don't tell anyone. I was supposed to be working.

  3. I don't know anything about posting vlogs, but I'm a techie so I'll give things a whack.

    You may have found this already, but check this page out:

    Lighting does improve quality, but that has nothing to do with resolution. But to improve lighting, make sure your face is facing the lighting. So if you open a window and most of the light is coming from it, face the window when you're recording.

    Another thing I found regarding uploading your video (skip to #9):

    Not sure if any of this will help.

    1. Thanks for the links; I'll check 'em out before I vlog again! :)

    2. I wish I could help more. I don't blog and I don't know anyone else that does. I think one of my coworkers does blogging, I'll ask him if he's done any vlogs and see.

      If we were neighbors I could help you. But I live up here in the frozen tundra of evil so...

    3. Yeah, to all of that.

      I haven't yet heard from anyone who has expressed an interest in my getting this all settled so I can post more video, so it may just be a thing I'll try for awhile and settle back into the written word. My guru who DID call with advice PREFERS the written word, AND when I called Daddy the other day, I realized that possibly the reason it had been awhile since we'd spoken is because HE had been seeing my face and hearing my voice, so it didn't occur to him to call ME.

      Regarding the climate, I'm sorry but I'm not sorry that I DON'T live in the frozen tundra of evil. It gets cold enough here. I think it was 54º yesterday, and rainy. :/


I LOVE your feedback; give it to me, Baby. Uh-huh, uh-huh.
