Do you guys like this format of video coverage? I am thinking of doing more of these "along for the ride" type videos, instead of shooting a monologue to cover what we did after it is over. The downside is of course these can get rather long. This one earlier this week went out to 44 minutes, however we covered all the basics in the first 15 minutes or so.Interesting seeing the process you had to go through to get this working.
I'm old fashioned and I still like to read long articles. But I will watch your videos just because it is HardOCP.
Harder to watch videos than read an article when I'm, ahem, "working".
You would fall over if you knew how much pay for play there is in the world of YT and hardware. There is a lot of it that is not tech journalism, but rather a paid commercial.To echo the sentiments of others, while I have a preference for written articles, I found the video to be extremely informative and actually fun to watch.
It's also a new (well, newish) way to engage with the community and potentially reach out to more members/viewers. I think part of the reason channels like LTT and Jays2cents are so popular is that the viewer feels more connected to both the content (the tech being covered) and the personalities of the hosts. It's not for everyone, but I would much rather watch a no nonsense video from HardOCP than worry about whether Linus was biased by writing a paid review.
Yeah I did. Hence asking for some slack on these as these are totally unscripted and just verbalized train of thought as I go.Did Kyle say 2600 in the beginning instead of 7600? Had to check the date to see if I was watching an old vid. lol
