How to create a youtube channel

We’re going to look at the simple steps you can take to start your own videos, from uploading a video script to creating subtitles at the end. All of this is really just a guide for those looking to make their Youtube channel or a YouTube channel as part of larger projects. There are lots of different ways to get started, but I’ve picked out three steps that work great for me. So let's begin!

How to create a youtube channel


Step 1) What is it?


This is basically a general overview of what you want to do with this site. You don't need to know anything about web development to be able to figure out the basic steps.

My site is called The Vocal Story, and I have created many other sites before. It's a fairly straightforward blog about one person telling stories and putting them onto film. My website has been written on my laptop and has some HTML and CSS files. In order to do anything at all, you need to install WordPress or something similar. If you're using Google Sites, you also need to submit your AdSense account. Then you'll need a Subscription Key to join. Finally you'll need to create an email address (you'll use free) and post this password so people will come to see your content.


Step 2) Uploading your Videos


The first step is to upload a video script, and you usually shouldn't write that yourself at all. Video scripts usually need to be uploaded from where they are recorded, usually in.avi format. That way they work at 60fps and there's no file size limits, and your viewers always have access to high quality footage. As a result, it doesn't matter if your video starts off slow or fast. This helps both sides of things. On one hand, you want people to watch as much of your content as possible, and on the other hand, you want to avoid any technical issues.

Video script usually comes in two form: A template. A script that gives you specific instructions like the thumbnail, opening, closed, etc. However, because we're talking here about video scripts I'd recommend sticking to a simple template. A template should include a little bit about each type of video you will do. I usually stick to five basic types.

1) Entertainment:

Just shows whatever's going on right now, like when someone is having fun. It's a good starting point for new channels.

2) Education:

It Shows tutorials and guides, usually based on books. Some examples can be found on bookshelves but others are less visible

3) Competition:

Shows competitions and gameplays to show skill, competition and sometimes tips and tricks. A cool example is Minecraft.

4) Motivation:

Takes us into action mode by showing how to accomplish our goals and dreams, then giving hints and hints on areas to explore to get there. Things like this are not so useful for beginners, only for more experienced users.

5) Help & Support:

These videos give extra advice and insight, or how-to information. Maybe you need help with your tax returns in preparation for filing 2019 taxes, how to improve your photography skills, etc. These videos probably can’t be used for competition (that wouldn’t be fair). But for your entertainment and education videos, that's ok.


There are quite a few other types of videos that exist, but these are the main ones I use. You should try to keep it to five types, but if you feel like the video script isn’t working for either case, then maybe this will be too rigid. And you may find you can get away with doing it without getting any better results than you would have if done in other ways.


But if you'd rather you can go ahead and modify the video. For instance, if you're playing basketball or football, you might decide to add some music. Or if you're making films, you can cut the footage or add effects. Or if you want all your shots to be perfect or if you're editing clips, you can add filters or stickers, and even put them around the screen. This is very helpful if you forget that you're doing this (the best thing I've achieved in terms of production output is when a camera person looks up, and says "Can you remove this?"). Other options include adding sound effects and changing your angle.


Step 3) Creating Subtitles


Subtitles are another important aspect of your videocast. Basically, they let viewers know what is happening on a video, whether they want to hear all the dialogue or just follow along closely with how the character moves. You can edit them with a variety of effect plugins such as Nuke. The text you choose to show on screen is also a key factor to make sure your audience sees your title text and not things from social media. For instance, Facebook posts can often contain emojis or gifs, which won’t stand up in titles or subtitle areas.


So, when you're trying to figure out how to achieve subtitles on your video, there are a couple of factors to consider in terms of your video. First of all, a lot depends on your subject. Do you talk about pop culture, science, technology, and art? Maybe you've got a hobby you like to share. Who knows what kind of subtitles will be appropriate? Secondly, you have to know how to work with subtitles. Depending on how well you know how to transcribe, some solutions will only require a paid subscription, while others will work for free. Once again, choose whichever suits you best.
