Hi Larry,

I'm probably the poorest excuse for a computer expert you'll ever find, but here's what someone told me to do - I think - for the YouTube link:

Switch to Full Reply Screen, click TV Screen icon (Enter a Media Tag), Choose "YouTube Video", Click yellow bar on top to "allow scripted windows", click "temporarily allow scripted windows", click "YouTube Video" icon again, and the "YouTube Video" choice that pops up, put in the URL code from YouTube on top (not Embed code).

Would love to see your videos. smile I'm sure Monica's instructions are much better.

Thanks Ellsa and Rickster. But... after I choose "YouTube Video", there is no yellow bar to allow scripted windows. All I've got is the option to choose UBB or HTML or both, nothing about scripted windows.

If it matters, I using a brand new Apple MacBook Pro and using Safari as the browser.

Elssa ~ I really liked your rendition of, It Had to Be You. It's been a long time since I've heard that!

Also...Thanks to Rick, Ladypayne, CMohr, Larry, Ben, Elssa for your comments and encouragement!

Here are a few more to digest. I've been working on 43 1 for awhile and mistakes keep popping up, especially when a recording is made - that crazy red light...Two more standards (metronome needed) and an improv. Hope you like 'em.

Now...all this talk about YouTube videos has piqued my interest. I suppose all that is needed is a YouTube account, a video camera and nerves of steel? My PC is ancient, which means an upgrade is in order because it will not edit video/audio files. Anything else I should consider? Editing software of some sort so I can combine an audio file with the video file?

Larry switch to full reply. Then click on the little blue square to open the video embed dialogue. Select YouTube Video.


Then go to your youtube video and copy the URI.



Then paste the URI into the box on the dialogue.



Click OK and then Submit.

Voila!

Thanks Dennis, I figured out what I was doing wrong. I needed to copy and paste the embed thing instead of the URL on the video page. Here goes... "blue smoke" [video:youtube][/video] I think this is the first one where I got my camera to pick up the audio from the external mics running through my digital recorder/amp. The piano is too dark, but at least I don't look like an albino as in the other ones in my channel. One of these days I'll get all this stuff right! Maybe the dark goes with the atmosphere of the piece.. This baby has some weird chords in it, I have no idea where they came from or what they are. My teacher is making me learn theory so I can be more savant and less idiot. (Just now when I googled "idiot savant" I spelled idiot wrong!) Thanks to all of you who helped me figure this YouTube stuff out.

Glen, very nice work. So you wrote 43 1? If so, this is a new style for you. Very good.

As far as the YouTube stuff, it's not hard, it only took me a week and lots of help from patient forum members for me to get it figured out! You don't need to mess with editing unless you're really picky about the audio quality. It also allows you to cut and paste sections of songs. But if you get a decent camera, the audio should be just fine. And it's nice to have one into which you can plug external mics. Plenty of folks are just using the camera mics, and it sounds pretty good.

One benefit of recording for YouTube is that the feeling you get while recording is just like what it feels like to play for people, so it's good practice if you ever want to perform in public, which in your case you should definitely consider.

If you don't want to do editing you may be able to get by with your current computer. It's worth a try anyway, but you may have storage issues and problems with processor speed.

So, get with it, my friend. You have such exceptional talent and such an incredible piano that I'm anxious to see some videos!

Blue Smoke is a wonderful composition, Larry. Love it! No doubt you have more to add to your channel?

Thanks for the comments and kind words of encouragement, Larry.

No, 43 1 is the only thing I recognize on the sheet music. The rest is in Russian. I have a piano lesson next week with my Russian teacher and I should get all the low-down on who composed it, etc. Maybe by then, I can get it up to a better tempo with no errors...all this before the investment into a video camera!


Glen

Thanks Glen, glad you like it.

As far as songs on my channel goes: 7 down, 52 to go.

It's really a lot of fun. thumb I'm just using a little Canon PowerShot A550 (about $100.00 new at Ebay), and I was so amazed at its wonderful audio as well as video quality. For editing, you might have Windows Movie Maker in your computer. I use Pinnacle Studio 12, and they have a free version called VideoSpin that's also very good. Would love to see/hear your videos, too! I don't find the video making any more nervewracking than the plain audio recording - same old red-light syndrome. eek laugh

Inlanding (Glen) - I listened to all of your pieces and really enjoyed them. I especially liked Love is Here to Stay and the bluesy feel of GM Piece.

As I usually do toward the end of a month, I have given up on trying to post comments on every piece. I have become overwhelmed by everyone's voluminous output. I have listened to each, and I enjoy and appreciate every contribution to this month's bar.
