Looking For Some Feedback On A Video I Made

Last Updated on by

I’ve been wanting to do some video tutorials for a while now and finally managed to make one. It’s a video version of my first tutorial on installing the latest version of WordPress. I was looking for some feedback on it, and whether you’d like to see more of these video tutorials like this in the future or not.

Update: Now available on the WordPress video tutorials page.

I know the quality is poor, thanks to YouTube – but hopefully it’s not too bad. Let me know what you think in the comments.

    Its not that bad. Easy enough to read.

    Anywho, seems pretty good dude, keep doing that instead of writting… not many people like reading, they would rather watch a video..

    And its a hell of a lot easyer to talk and show in a video, than to write? No?

    Great tutorial, Leland! I have yet to see a video tutorial on WordPress-related stuff, definitely looking forward to more though.

    And I agree with Anto – it seems to be much easier to explain things when you can actually speak to people.

    Another great addition to the growing ‘lab :-)

    pretty good , i liked it and it’s [ just as the previous posters said ] much easier than reading

    well done

    Sweet. I need all the help I can get…keep ‘em coming! I mean this I CAN do but anything else…not so much! LOL!

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. I’ll be posting more videos like this in the future.

    @ameo: It’s called Camtasia: http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.asp

    Excellent video tutorial, very helpful, clear and precise. I look forward to further videos.

    Good Leland! I like video tutorials b/c it’s much easier to follow (sometimes with written instructions I always worry about missing a step-I’m sort of a beginner internet user). Good job.

    @ leland :

    MAN .. i was praying that you’d say that it’s something other than camtasia it’s 300 $ i remember that there has been a giveaway version with no limitations but i didn’t catch the dead line :(

    I’ll try something else beg techsmith for a free one :D

    @ Leland,

    Really looks good. I have my own video tutorials planned in the coming weeks for a site I’ve been developing. I think I may have emailed you about it???

    @ameo,

    If you’re looking for an inexpensive, and I mean FREE screencasting tool, I’ve tried many and can recommend Cam Studio found here, http://camstudio.org/

    @Adam: Thanks for the kind words. I don’t recall ever receiving an e-mail from you about video tutorials though. Feel free to send again, I believe you have my address. ;)
