This post contains a video about my second week’s challenge. I’m picking up many bits of knowledge and skills as I face the challenges. I finally discovered how to change the text colour.
The main part of the challenge is to do a video and upload to Youtube then embed to my blog.
I did the video in two takes. Grreat! then I had to rush out to see a local client and keep other commitments..
When I returned at night, I began to edit. The background noise was terrible.
I left it like that and did my best in the video editor (too late for another take).
Then to upload to YouTube. It’s the worst part because it takes too long and we can never tell if the audio file conversion from editor to Youtube will affect the final sound.
After taking forever to upload, the audio in Youtube was barely audible yet perfect in video editor. I then adjusted in the video editor to compensate for the compression when converted to YouTube and tried to upload another time.
Wait forever…. and forever…. and forever. This is crazy!
I canceled the operation and tried to upload a few times again. I had to leave the house for a few hours so I hoped that it would be complete when I returned.
Five hours away from home and still there was a problem with the upload when I returned! This has never happened before!
I tried to upload a few more times but fell asleep waiting.
When I awoke, I saw that the video wasn’t on YouTube although I tried to publish. I calmly logged off. My deadline was already gone so I simply dealt with what was in front of me with a smile. I needed to go to work on Monday Morning!
I went to the kitchen for a quick breakfast and logged on again. Uploaded once more then got ready for work. When I left the house it was still uploading so I smiled.
When I launch a product one day I ‘ll remember to put everything in place to prevent this nonsense!
I got to work and had an early meeting then I loaded onto Google and checked my video. Clicked publish and … VOILA!
I looked at another video to learn how to embed the code to this blog and here it is.
I have learnt some time ago to always keep composure when I can’t do anything about a bad situation. When it’s out of my control, it is out of control and I need to stay in control.
Rule #5 = Plan for the worst if there is a deadline because time is not mine.
Thanks for reading and watching!
Enjoy the Game!
