How to Record a Video

Because most laptops come with a webcam already installed it is becoming much easier to be your own videographer.  Technology has amazed us all as the mobile phone giants work with manufactures to provide phones with capabilities and cameras that rival some of the professional equipment available.  Simple features now allow you to record a video and upload it to the world in a matter of moments.  Not so tech savvy?  No problem!


So you’re ready to record a video to add to StreetPoetz? It’s simple!!

  • First – You should decide what you would like to do. That’s right, stay organized. Will you be reading your poetry, singing, rapping, or performing in some other way? Think about how you want to appear and if you want to appear at all. Do you want to have music playing in the background, and what will you be wearing? Remember, though you are showcasing your talent… you still want to be presentable because you never know who’s watching.
  • Next – Make sure you have a YouTube account. If you have a Gmail account, you can sign in using your email address and password. At the very top of the page you will see a link that says, Upload. This is the easiest way to go. You can either upload a pre-recorded video or simply record directly in YouTube. A couple of menu boxes will pop up and once you have made your selections, press record and you’re all set!!
