@barco Thank you, believe me a little encouragement helps
@vasilis_mint Thank you for taking the time, very much appreciated.
really simple and straightforward just like they should be
I'm aiming at young kids with little or poor education who can't do manuals but look things up on youtube.
What I think would benefit the functionality of your videos would be audio commentary
I completely agree with you but first I had to become a camera man for the recordings which I think I've about achieved so the next step is to learn to edit the videos and then to add a sound track.
Remember that most people (me included) would like to see a straight to the point video with as much info as possible in the shortest amount of time!
Agreed for folk like you but would it be right for the folk I'm aiming at? It would be very easy for someone with more knowledge than I to edit the original recordings for more accomplished end users.
WHY you need a swap partition or what an ext4 partition format
I think it would just confuse my target audience but perhaps include a text file describing things in more detail.
I will have to do a video showing how to resize a typical windows install that uses the whole drive as c:\ and then how to add partitions for Linux but I'm still mulling it over in my head how to approach it in a simple way.
On a side note I loled a bit when I saw you select the AMD64 guest additions version and the "non compatible version" message popped up on the terminal before you proceeded on selecting the correct version
Although not a deliberate mistake and easily edited out I have formed the opinion that when teacher makes an occasional error it relaxes folk and shows them how to recover when they make similar errors.
Thank you for the feedback as it's the only feedback I've received apart from barko's words of encouragement so it helps a lot.
I've started playing with Openshot and I'm starting to suss the way it likes to work so I'm developing work practices to fit around it.
I've also played with Audacity and found out how to remove the background hum from my sound recordings.
Mint 11 is due out very shortly and then work will commence on updating Mint Update, Mint Software Manager and possible the Mint repositories and it is then that I plan on recording the videos, at the moment it's all about perfecting my techniques.
This is a short demo of where I'm at at the moment http://lin.me.uk/tutorials/video/lmde/updating-test.mp4
