Hi guys, i'm pretty new to YouTube so i was wondering if anyone could give me some honest feedback on my first video. iv decided to start off making gaming videos and if that doesn't take off then ill change and start making programming tutorials (or possibly both!!) but for the mean time i'm starting a Stardew Valley Lets Play. i would love it if i could get some things i can improve on (i'm open to constructive criticism :winky:) anyway i know its a bit of a long vid but iv cut it and that's the shortest i could get it without overdoing the editing.
thank you for reading

Hey Ajax,

I am guessing this was a mistake, but there is no audio for your voice, only the game sound. there is only audio for the very beginning and then it stops after the intro unfortunately. Make sure to go over the video well before exporting it and export both video and sound. The length of the video is great, with let's plays unless you are making like a best moments kind of thing, it is fine to go to between 15 and 20 min, with better more recognised youtubers, they might even go to 30.

If you reupload with commentary I can go over it again.

Hi Valerik,
im not sure whats happening on your end, but your message panicked me a little so i check the video above and the whole on my channel and they both have a commentary after the intro all the way through, iv been told the volume might need to be increased but i can clearly hear my commentary (on my computer).
Thank you for the feedback tho its still appreciated:redface:

Hey Ajax,

I am really sorry to have scared you, but when I played it, for some reason it was only playing the background music and sounds from the game, but now that I reloaded it, it is playing fine. That is one of the weirdest things that I have ever seen, but hopefully it is nothing to do with your video and maybe something on my end, which would be unfortunate either way ;)

I would definitely increase the sound/gain of your voice, it will make it sound much better and more engaging, also lower the game sound just a bit as well. You commentary is really good and interesting though which is nice to hear compared to many other channels that I have reviewed in the past!!

Make sure to add more to the description of the video, like a link to your outro music and especially make sure to add links to your social media. You can have a look at my video description to get an idea. Your thumbnail is nice and simple which is good, but maybe add something to show that it is your channel, such as that moon with the palms and AJ, on the bottom/top left corner of the video, but then make sure you keep it constant throughout videos, do not keep changing its position.

I hope that helps, best of luck :)

I agree that your voice could stand to be a bit louder in comparison to the game audio. There's this program, god I can't remember how it's called, I'm so sorry about that... You could google it, as I'm sure there are a few programs that do the same thing.. Anyways, it automatically lowers the volume of the game sound as you speak, so the in-game sound kinda fades back ad you comment, and then gets louder again once you stop, making everything nice and balanced, audio-wise. A lot of people use it on streams, I'm sure it will benefit you with your videos as well (again, I'm sorry for spacing out on the name).

As for the video itself, I think it's pretty good. The intro and outro music might be a smidge to loud in comparison to the rest, but the actual let's play seems pretty nice and engaging. Though Stardew Valley has that soothing effect on people, it could be that I'm just hipnotyzed by the game :laugh2: Anyway, keep doing what you're doing, your let's play seems off to a good start, I'd love to see more of it! Good luck going forward :thumbsup2:
