  1. We have found that the combo of live AND recorded is the only way to build a channel. Because the recorded videos take care of the audience building, while the live streams take care of the nurturing of the audience the videos are creating. If you only stream on a channel, unless you already have some sort of existing audience, you will find it very challenging to ever wind up in discovery. I would suggest you stop being stubborn LOL. I would start streaming on your MAIN channel that has all the videos. Just make sure when you do, that you do it consistently at the same time every week or

  2. It is not a small device, no! It is way too big. I really wish I would have opted for the 12 Pro. I may downgrade one of these days.

  4. I will do a video showing the set-up next week. Getting ready to travel today. Stay tuned! It's actually quite easy. One thing that I can tell you to do for now is turn off the headphones for all sources when using the GoXLR by clicking on the gear icon in the audio mixer section. You should see a green headphone icon. Click that and it should turn gray. That means it's off. Then you should at least not get an echo...I will try to get the rest early next week. https://8.d.pr/Flf8If

  5. Hey geek! So, today I ordered a new Streaming Machine. As you may know, I had planned to use an iMac for the overhead camera set-up in the streaming studio, but that was not working as Ecamm was having issues with NDI. Then I had a client that decided he wanted to stick with Mac and not move to PC, so rather than try to figure out how to make the iMac work for other things, I sold it to the client. That was about $5800 total. That gave me $5800 to put toward a new streaming machine that I KNOW would work for what I need, so that is what I ordered. Below are the specs, and let me tel

  6. I just watched a limited series on Netflix called The Queen's Gambit. It's about a chess player. A PRO chess player. I didn't even realize that was a thing. It was pretty good. It is really strange at times, and it's hard to tell what's going on. I got lost a few times, and that is rare for me There was also quite a bit of foreshadowing. I never like when they think the viewers aren't going to get things unless they make them obvious. Like the scientist telling us the entire story leading up to that point. It's so cliché. I do recommend it though as I did find it to be a fu

  7. I have been noticing all of the changes to the Creator Studio separating content into video\live\posts and maybe shorts I don't have that yet so I don't know. I have been very stubborn in my attempt to grow a channel that goes live and uploads pre-recorded video. I usually leave my streams posted in the replays playlist and if subject related. How do you feel about that? I am anticipating the algorithm to analyze content accordingly one day and awarding different scores to content based on its origin. I am wondering if you feel the same way or have a different idea?

  8. Just the features. I'd still use WordPress if I was building a marketing site. Once I get this site all done, the front end will still be WordPress. But just the main marketing pages.

  11. Well first of all, it's not WordPress. 😜 We're using a platform called Invision community. I've been using it for a few years now on client projects but decided to bring it to Geeks Life. Hoping we can grow a nice Community here.

  12. I think there is also a huge difference in managing a live situation and being able to stop and record everything. I once listened to a behind the scenes recording of a podcaster and Youtuber I follow (bright sun films) and he re-records almost every line! That would never work live! And that means a whole load of different skills when presenting live. You make this look easy when live-streaming!

  14. Well...I have been thinking for several weeks. Playing with NEW Facebook features and observing the user experience, and after a LOT of thought and deliberation I have decided what we are going to do. Some of you are going to love it. Some of you may hate it. But one thing is for sure...we are ALL going to have a much better experience in the long run. So, I have tested the Facebook API as well as YouTube and have found that we cannot have single login for the website/forums with either of these and pull your memberships over with them to give you access to members only content.

  17. First of all, thank you for your service, respect👊 there is a lot of resources available to you to help along the way. Your in one of the right spots here. If you want to dive deep into it, start with Tim Schmoyer of Video Creators, Dan Currier of Creator Fundamentals, Darell Eves, Nick Nieman and your already here with David so I am assuming you know Luria as well. The above people will help you a lot and so will we!

  18. I have been attending ProFusion 2020 today and there is an anomaly I have noticed.... that is they can't live stream. With all of the big tech they have, I mean hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gear, they have no idea how to stream. I just wanted to put that out there and maybe we can talk about how we are at the forefront of the next revolution in video production.

  20. Hey Geek! So, it turns out there is some legislation floating around out there that could make streaming copyrighted materials a felony! This is a VERY important conversation. (SOURCE) What do you think? Do you live stream? Will you be taking action? Let me know in the comments below!

  25. Hi David I hope you can help me. I have looked everywhere and in the LSP groups and training but don't seem to be able to find anywhere that explains how to set up the GoXLR on Vmix. I saw your video on how to set up the mic etc but haven't seen anything on the exact steps in Vmix. I have the mini (I didn't get the full one - my wife said I wasn't cool enough to change my voice etc LOL). I thought I had set it up correctly with the info I had but the levels etc don't seem to be right plus I wanted to use the sliders to control the level of audio etc which I think is s

  26. David, Have you thought about sharing how to "produce shows" for others from A-Z? I've done a few during COVID-19 via Zoom and been a MOD for an LA Wordpress Conference (which they used Blaze Networks to produce). I'd love to learn from your experience in this area. Thoughts?

  28. I think this would be a better niche since the health/weight loss is SOO heavily saturated. And you can monetize anything if you have listeners. You just need to have something you can show them. And if you do the hockey thing, you can also do the weight loss thing along with it...but not make that the focus. It would just be something you're doing and talking about sometimes...and see how your audience responds. Bring personal things into your content for sure! And the fact that you are starting now is AWESOME! Just go for it! p.s. so sorry about the late reply. I guess I mis

  29. I have a bit of a dilemma in the fact that I have 2 different ideas I'm passionate about Live Streaming and building a business around but I know I cannot focus on both. I own both of the domain names, already have websites setup and YouTube Channels created as well as social media accounts created for both ideas. IDEA #1: The first idea is about creating a channel about my favorite Hockey Team. Live streaming after every game as well as creating content videos to attract an audience. IDEA #2: The second idea revolves around fitness and getting healthy. I just turned 50 and nee

  32. I know this isn't very geeky, but this is a conversation worth having. What I am hearing on the media these days about this vaccine is scaring me. And maybe it should worry you as well. What do YOU think? Does this concern you at all? Do you feel I am being hyperbolic? If so, you are in a safe place. Let me know how you feel.

  36. Did anyone else see this movie? I had a good friend give a really bad review so I skipped this in the theaters but thought a little differently about it when I watched it a few days ago. I think the movie reached for some type of higher intellectual premise much like they did in “Tree of Life” which was another really weird and slightly disturbing.

  39. Yeah yeah, I know. Make up your damn mind David. I get it. You all think I change phones like underwear, but the truth is I don't. I just make a big deal about it when I DO change, because if I am going to be spending as much as $1300 on a phone, it better be damn near perfect. I am NOT looking for perfect, because I know that doesn't exist. I still feel like it could...it just doesn't because these damn manufacturers don't listen to their userbase enough. The experiment too much for my taste. Just give me a sleek phone that does all I need it to do flawlessly. Simple. So, here it

  42. Soon, I will be doing a review of the NEW iPhone 12 Pro Max! UPDATE: Here's the UNBOXING stream I did on Twitch... UPDATE: Ok phones are IN HAND! That means I will be working on the reviews. We also grabbed the Mini for Jennifer. She LOVES it so far. Personally, as I do find the Max to be HUGE, it is not too bad. I THINK I could get used to it. We will see. Stay tuned! I am working on a video with it called "Will I keep It". I think that may become a series!

  44. So I’ve had my new M1 Mac for two days now, here’s what I’ve found. it is fast, - it’s instantly on, like an iPhone is instantly on. some stuff doesn’t work (yet), you can’t do virtual machines yet, though I understand this is in the works. you can run iPad apps, which is cool and weird! the sound is amazing too. if you do development work, things like Ruby, home brew don’t work properly. Rosetta2 is pretty seamless, though my creative cloud has crashed a few times, I’m sure this will get fixed soon. the battery lasts all day for normal use (ie not inten

  47. I had a VERY popular TV show reach out to me because they had no idea how to run a stream from their home. They were shocked. They were expecting me to tell them it would cost them tens of thousands of dollars, and when I told them they were floored. I mean, when Trevor Noah first started streaming from home it looked like he was using a Logitech C920...and maybe he was...but you would think these guys production teams would know this. I helped Matti Haapoja, a YouTuber, wit his initial live stream set up and he did not realize they could use all their C200's etc. So yeah, it is a pretty

  50. Yeah. That's the route I wanted to go. But I think the camera will be more important for me. I have 14 days where I get it to decide so we'll see. I'm over big phones for sure. I'd actually prefer the mini. 😜 I'll see next week. Fingers crossed.
