My 8 year long campaign has finished and the conclusion is now uploaded to YouTube!
It’s pretty long. Thirteen hours of me jabbing with my friends about Dungeons and Dragons. I’ve noticed that people who do this professionally make recap episodes that are about 10 minutes long with summaries and only the best bits of the action. That’s something I might do if a lot of viewers request them.
I’m proud of the visual setup I created for this. The globe picture seems like it would work for any genre of RPG and I have other camera borders ready to go for other genres.
I had some issues with the audio, but they were easy to fix. I’m aware of them for the future.
Skype was also annoying in how the video locations kept changing when people left the call or turned off their cameras. I’ve started looking at alternatives that might have a better interface for capturing the images with OBS. Current list includes: Discord, Hangouts, Jitsi, VSee, and Viber.
Streaming was definitely popular with the members of the D&D group. We’ll keep doing it, if only for ourselves to rewatch.
