    Wow I haven't been very active on the forums. That's a lot of support. Just for a simple thought that I figured had been thought of already. Thanks I guess? Anyways, if this were made into a mod, or sent in to Mojang or something. That would be cool :D

    I literally just paused my game as soon as I thought of this. Don't you hate it when you have to break a chest, to move it, and the items go everywhere? And you don't have enough room in your inventory to collect it all up? Well here's the idea:

    When you place another chest beside the chest you would originally break, it makes a double chest right? And when you break the side of the chest that had the stuff in it, all the items will still spew out, right? So what if when you make a single chest a double chest, and break the original chest, all the items transfer over to the unbroken half? Does that make any sense? Maybe not. Support or No Support. I would like to see some opinions.

    Thank you for the advice! I was planning on ditching minecraft for a while and doing stuff like prop hunt, and murder, maybe even team fortress 2. But your suggestions do sound pretty good. I'll definitely try to start making some goals for my videos, unless they are like prop hunt where it doesn't matter what episode.

    posted a message on My YouTube channel needs some help.
    I've made videos for quite some time on my channel, just very un-often. I got myself a gaming pc, and my voice has dropped a decent amount of decibels, and I started making videos again. I just need some help. I don't have a job, as I am only a sophomore, so I'm on a tight budget of lawn mowing money, and holiday money. I really just need some advice and tips. I know my commentary kinda sucks at the moment, but that will improve on it's own, but I have to edit my videos with Windows movie Maker. I had Pinnacle studio 14 on my old computer but... It's on my old computer. So I have to use WMM, which i fortunately am good at using. I also am using a webcam for my microphone. Not too terrible just picks up a good chunk of background noise. I primarily do minecraft, but when I get more people to watch other then my family and friends, then I want to expand to other games. This isn't my way of self advertising, or view farming, I really need some advice, So PLEASE watch the video below (Uploaded today) and give me some help, anything will work, just need something.

    posted a message on What Makes a Good Minecraft Video?
    I understand that minecraft videos are very common, and unless they know what you are doing, most videos will come out being boring, or just straight up terrible. If you are reading this please take some time to reply with some questions, thoughts, or ideas.

    Like most players of minecraft, I am/was tempted to make minecraft videos on YouTube. Why? I thought Maybe I could do something productive with my gaming, rather than just wasting time, Maybe I could even entertain people. I started as a squeaker with 10 fps recordings, using a bandicam demo. I gave up until I could get a better computer. I've been playing minecraft for 5 years. No seriously. I'm 15 now, and I've bought a gaming computer, but I still don't know how to make a good video, regardless of watching many myself.

    So I'm typing this for two reasons: Shameless self-promotion, and asking for advice to improve my videos in any way. Promotion isn't really intended, it's just an added bonus.

    Anywhale, I would ask of you to skip through (or watch all of it if you want), and ask for constructive criticism. And yes, I know it's kinda un-entertaining, but that's why I'm doing this.

    Quote from JohnOptegrove

    HD429/449, or if you have more money M50s, are the way to go.


    I have heard that the M50s are the most UN-comfortable for big ears

    posted a message on Headphones for big ears?
    I really don't want to go make a new account on another forum (already have three different accounts for different forums) so I want to ask around here first. So I just bought the Razer Electra headphones. I was skeptical about how comfy they would be, because my ears are really large, and stick outward a lot. Now that I have them I am experiencing extreme pain after about an hour of use. I have been trying to look for a good pair of headphones under $100 that should fit my huge ears. I could go with on ear headphones, or even in ear, but then I am lacking in sound quality (for most headphones at this price range at least). I was looking at Sennheiser's HD 419s but I don't know about those either. I have tried on Bose's SoundTrue headphones before, and they felt like nothing was there, but I don't know about if they are good for gaming.

    I use headphones for music, pc gaming, and I have a ghetto PS3 audio setup to go to a female 3.5mm jack for my headphones.

    I can hear everything else in the game perfectly fine but I can BARELY hear my footsteps. Is there any way to fix this or is this an audio/headphone problem?

    Quote from CyrusOfSky

    I don't really think there is. There are times when you come across something real unique that someone did with a Minecraft video, but usually that's either in the 3D animation videos, map showcases or redstone videos. I think a lot of people take Minecraft channels as a get rich/popular quick scheme, since a lot of the better known Minecraft Youtubers just make it look really easy, and that's why they're so common now.


    I think, for me, the 'point' is to find a small crowd that you can entertain and have fun entertaining them. From other replies to this topic I have decided that if 1 person likes my content and style of commentary (that I have yet to fully develop) then maybe a few more will too. It was pretty fun to make the videos I have up now. I want to keep doing it too. It's really fun for me to make them. And as long as it's fun for at least 1 person to watch, then why stop?

    He means include them in games you play, if possible. For example, if you're playing GTA Online, add subscribers as friends and play in friend/crew (if you were to make one) only lobbies. When you're a smaller Youtuber, you can play with subscribers without too much issue. However, once you gain more, it'll be a lot more difficult to play due to trolls and immaturity. People griefing, following you around trying to be in the video, etc. There's a reason big Youtubers don't generally play in public servers/lobbies.


    I think I'll be waiting for that as well. I can't record gameplay yet and I don't have very many active subs to be able to do that

    You know, networking, stuff like that? It's alright if you don't have much friends. Luckily they always come! Start talking to other YouTubers or ask here aswell, see if anyone wants to make content with you within your demographic. And yes contracts like Machinima and all the networks like maker studios, rev3 games, TGN, and so forth. Sometimes you'll be binded in horrendous contracts that leave your adsense account (how you make money) locked to the network and your intellectual property becomes theirs.

    Look through it and if you even smell something off you ask about it. I was a affiliate scout so I'd contact channels without a network, arrange an interview of some sort and I'd discuss the reality of YouTube. Sometimes you'll find more or less shady characters who are willing to go each and every step of the way. Lastly explore your opportunities. If you're not being offered something good you might aswell monetize your videos and manage your own adsense and see how far you get off without network resources.


    Ok thanks! I'm pretty sure I'm going to put off Collaboration for a while, as well as signing contract stuff. They wouldn't do much for me right now anyways. I don't think i'm ready for collaborations yet.
    Quote from Videomixer

    As a small-time YouTuber, the only advice I can give from first-hand experience is to
    1. Upload somewhat frequently
    2. Include your subscribers in the content
    3. Talk to other larger than you but still small channel creators to collab
    4. Enjoy making your videos!

    I got many of my subscribers from my Pokemon videos after communicating with RubyCarbuncIe with a simple question.


    (The old YouTube comments, how I miss you...)


    What do you mean by include my subscribers in my content? I can't give them shout-outs or anything because It doesn't show me their channel name when I view my subscribers, and I don't have enough people right now for it to really make a difference.

    I've been a content creator for Machinima since late 2009 and I can tell you, from the posts I've read 99% of them are right. Being a content creator you deal with the ups and downs, the fads, the randomness of community and lastly the business aspect of it. I'd like to go ahead and give my 2 cents if you'd oblige me with it and I'll break it down to give you some insight from a man who has been doing this for a long long time.

    I run my own channel but a couple of flagship channels under their network.

    It's always about the money. I do not want to hear anyone here who has "made" it on YouTube tell you otherwise. YouTube is all about opportunity, you may like making content (i.e lets plays, reviews, random stuff, etc). Would you do your current job for free? Chances are that's a flat out no with little to no hesitation.

    For YouTubers was or is about making content for many reasons, money included. A majority of the people who I worked with as an affiliate scout and a Director either had no experience and created content for personal reasons at the start of their career. Making videos for their family, a funny cat video, a random gameplay video. It always starts somewhere and for many it's all about opportunity. Leads to my next point.

    Consider YouTube a free market. Opportunists can venture into YouTube with an open mind (or you're doomed from the start) and make as much as they put in. If you make good quality videos, with high production value, an audience, scheduled content and an open personality you'll be fine.

    If you're in there for money chances are no one will like your stuff because they'll know it right off the bat. If you're looking for a couple of pointers I'll leave you with this.
    • Have patience. 99% chance you won't hit your demographic or your fanbase automatically
    • Collaborate. Collaborate. Collaborate. Collaborate.
    • Be ready to allocate some money for your investment.
    • Read your contracts and make sure if you're under aged to inform and get your parents involved. If any legal issues occur and they don't know. You're screwing THEM and YOURSELF.
    • Don't negotiate your first contract deal. Renegotiate second for CPM rates.
    • Make good content that you'd personally watch or no one will watch it. Period.
    • Be optimistic and have a personality.
    Any more questions or concerns? Let me know. I'm always here to help!


    How should I go about collaborating? I don't really have any friends... Oh and can you go more in detail about contracts? I have no clue what you are talking about... Do you mean like signing with machinima or something other than just being independent?
