Nothing makes a video look bad more than improper lighting, especially when recording in HD off your phone or webcam. For the best setup ensure you have lights facing you and no backlighting which will distort your videos by making them look grainy and give you a halo effect.
In order for you to provide mp3 quality audio in your video, you need to record in mp3. For this you need to use one of my 3 Methods.
You can do this via any of these methods.
You will need to install an internal sound capture application in order for OBS to "hear" your computer. For this I have chosen iShowU Audio Capture by shinywhitebox.
|iShowU Audio Capture (Free)|
Download and follow the installation instructions exactly as outlined. Integration instructions will be provided in the setup instructions.
If you want high quality video you must record in HD. For this task I suggest using a webcam (or even a phone) with at least 1080p or 4K capability. Please note that most laptop webcams only support 720p which is why videos always look better on your phone.
In order for you to properly capture and save the video (and even add in a few extras) you need high-quality (and FREE) software that will allow you to record in full HD. For this task I have chosen OBS which coincidentally is the same software I use for all my actual live streams.
I like this program because its FREE, you can use your webcam (and even phone) as the camera, and it also allows us to add layers such as graphics with our names, logos, and such as an overlay to the video. Also note that while it will look and seem a bit complicated, I will walk you through the setup.
First thing we need to do is tell OBS what to capture our video and audio with. To do this we need to add "sources".
Note: If you do not see video, or chose the wrong camera, double click the video source to change cameras.
OBS lets us add overlays onto our videos such as graphics with logos etc. This is how you do it.
Repeat as necessary
Now we need to tell OBS how we want our recordings.
Now that we have everything setup, let's do a quick test to make sure all is working properly.
