Future plans for DavidGXtube / setup.

Last Updated: 11/19/2016

Hey folks. I thought I would give an outline of what I want to do and get for my YouTube channel in the not-too-distant future.

I'll update this post as things get bought/set up.

  • Better Lighting

    Status: DONE! Better lighting provided via a couple of LED lamps. Thanks to Mint Plays!

  • Better Webcam Video Quality

    Status: Ongoing. I have a Logitech C920 Webcam at the moment. Since I've recently started doing gameplay videos in 60fps, this would allow me to have my face cam footage at the same framerate. Also the quality would be ever so slightly better.

  • Green Screen for News Bit

    Status: Not Yet. I figure I can probably get a good enough effect with just a green screen since I have decent lighting. As soon as I can get the money, this is a top priority.

  • System Upgrade

    Status: Partial. I recently acquired 32GB of DDR3 RAM thanks to Mint Plays!. I still plan on upgrading my system to a DDR4/AMD "Zen" set up early 2017. At least now I have enough RAM to render videos and not have to close Chrome or risk losing work.

    I'm definitely still looking forward to those new AMD chips. Having 8 high performance cores is going to be very nice for rendering and the silly way in which I record videos using two separate copies of OBS. (If you'd like me to do a video demonstrating that, let me know.)

  • Ask DavidGX Videos

    Status: Too Soon? I'd like to do a regular, or perhaps semi-regular, "Ask DavidGX" where people submit questions and I answer them. I've put out a call for questions to my Ask.fm page but haven't gotten much response. Anonymous questions are enabled so if I get enough (maybe 10 answerable questions) I'll do a video answering them. This might just be a thing I have to wait to do until I have a larger audience.

  • Live Streams

    Status: Not Yet. I'd like to do more live streams. But, again, this may be something I'm forced to wait on until I have a larger audience. I've messed around with streaming a little bit on my Twitch Channel and it's gone fairly well. I'm still not sure if I should primarily stream on YouTube or Twitch. I'm thinking Twitch since it's best not to have all your eggs in one basket. But this is something that will be decided once I have a bigger audience.

That's the list so far. Got any ideas for me? Anything I'm not doing that you'd like to see me do on YouTube? Let me know in a comment to this post, over at my YouTube Channel or on Twitter.
