I think most, myself included open a youtube acct. and upload there first then post the video direct from youtube into the forum post or a youtube link.

ok thanx DAPuke, do you just do it in the one hit or can you replay it to see if you make any mistakes and then re record it if you do?

I think once you upload, it can't be re-done. I should have watched mine closer before uploading. For youtube they must be deleted and re-uploaded if you want to make a change.

Once the video is recorded, I think that is it. Without a camera direct to you tube is the best option I can think of. I believe you can edit them right in you tube as well.
Good luck I am looking forward hearing your video!

you can record yourself first using video capture software
here is an article on the subject.


I having tryed the software mentioned so I cant comment on that. But there many others out there Im sure. Check with the maker of your webcam, it may have come with software for it as well or you may be able to download it from their site. One you have a video , there are editing programs you cant use as well, they can be a bit of a learning curve too, especialy if you not experienced with editing, but the basic ones will let you do simple cut /paste and transitions etc.

best of luck with your video , congrats on you musical milestone :)
