My 2nd suggestion: you mumble + speed through your name in outro, and likewise during intro to 'Ubuntu 18.04 Should Use KDE Plasma - Part 2' video. Slow it down and make it clear both your name and your site name.
TuxDigital (2 years ago)
That's a new one for me. :) I do sometimes mumble things I say often which I say my name and the channel name in pretty much every video. I just loaded the video up to listen and hmmm, I do mumble it a bit. :) I'll work on slowing that down. Thanks.

Suggestion: ditch the constant music.
TuxDigital (2 years ago)
I did decide to drop the music and the next episode which should be out tomorro will have that fix. Thanks

A great idea and thanks for putting in the effort. Some comments... Pros: I like it that you do not use a live head view... you have a great speaking voice (but see first con) without any extreme accent, and little to no uhm/uhh disfluent fillers... your stream of presentation is clear and focused... love the lack of intrusive ads... don't fall for the friendly discussion mode trap, keep it formal more like a TV news broadcast (there are plenty of annoying chatty linux podcasts). Cons: you need a better microphone with a pop filter with a touch of limiting/compression/reverb... need more titles, screenshots and videos to better illustrate the topics you are talking about (more like the "Why Ubuntu should use Plasma" videos)... need more Plasma/Neon/KDE centric news :-) If you do get popular and go for ads then make them optional and batch them all up at the END of the *cast. Or better still, make dedicated advertorials that are interesting enough to actually want to make (some) folks watch them and keep ads out of the main content altogether. That alone could be an "award winning feature". With a bit of effort I think you could match the Linux Action Show (soon to be Linux Action News, I think) in popularity in as little as a year (if getting reach and influence is one of your goals).

Wow, thanks so much for this feedback. Pros: 1. I don't use a headview right now but it has been requested and I am considering it. I won't make it a focal point or anything but I might include it at some point because it actually unexpectedly makes it a bit easier to edit videos with one. It will be in such a way though that watchers could ignore and audio listeners won't have any reason to care. :) 2. Thanks for the compliment of my voice, I try to keep my "regional" accent as non-existent as possible but sometimes it slips out. If you were to take a guess, where do you think I'm from based on my accent? 3. The uhm/uhh thing is conscious decision because I hate filler so I try to make my videos "All Killer, No Filler". http://www.lyricsmusic.name/img/photos/asum-41-all-killer-no-filler.jpg :) 4. friendly discussion trap, interesting way to put it. I will be testing out some stuff with a friend guesting on the show but it will still have my editing in it so filler will be removed but I think it would be nice to have some occasional variety than just me talking. :) (he has a very distinctive accent though so I'll still do most of the talking) I'm not interested in leaving the news realm into a regular podcast, if I do a regular podcast, that will just be a separate thing altogether. I don't like podcasts that merge it all into a weird mess of no format. Cons: 1. I kind of have a better microphone, the mic I used on the Unity/Plasma videos is what I am using in the next episode of this. 2. I created a new way to handle the titles . . . each segment and topic will have their own title now with this new setup. I have to keep the graphics I make down though because they take a while to do when you combine it all together. This show takes a lot longer than I expected it to. :) --------- I do plan to make more KDE/Plasma related videos as well as many other types of videos. :) -------- As for the ads, I don't like the idea of batching all the ads together because I want the advertisers to feel like there is a reason to advertise with me and if they are batched then everything but the first and last ads are skipped and most of those are skipped. If the ads were at the end then most people would just skip them all. I don't want that. Instead, what I plan to do as a goal for ads is keep all ads at no more than 30 seconds but aim for 15 seconds so they aren't needed to be skipped but also aren't intrusive to the point of frustration. Advertorials is a good idea, and I might just do that but I want to make it a viable option to do all of this for as long as possible. If I could get enough people to support me on Patreon or something then I'd be happy with just doing the videos with no ads. I am not looking to get rich from it, I just want to do it as much as possible and if I could somehow make this my job, even if just making minimum wage from it, I WOULD LOVE IT! Thanks for the comment about the Linux Action Show matching . . . I hope that happens. :) I actually used to be the producer for Linux Action Show, ("Producer Michael"), and still am for Linux Unplugged so the comparison is better than you know. :)

Awesome stuff man, keep it up.
TuxDigital (2 years ago)
Thanks. :)

Cool podcasting, all the best.
ShaTer (2 years ago)
And there you're very much welcome, keep going on.

+Shakir Regalo thank you very much for the feedback
Gabriel Dubatti (2 years ago)
Great work! The background music is a little annoying for me, though.
TuxDigital (2 years ago)
Thanks for the feedback. You are not the first to be bothered by the constant music. :) I will be removing it from the next episode. I'll keep some of it at times but nothing to the extent it has in this episode.
Adam Armstrong (2 years ago)
2 minutes in, and I'm not sure I can keep listening. The background clicking already has me holding a knife to my wife's throat standing in the blood of our already murdered pets and children. #AudioQualityLivesMatter
TuxDigital (2 years ago)
+Adam Armstrong thanks for the feedback. I do intend to make future episodes with myself in it on camera but I don't know about blue screening it though, I'll think about it. I'll figure something out. Thanks again for the feedback.
Adam Armstrong (2 years ago)
you might want to do a blue screened mini talking head on the screen somewhere. it makes the whole thing a little more relatable. at first i was a bit disappointed that it seemed like it the video was just going to be a static background to the audio, but i actually liked the on screen format once it started showing relevant stuff. talking heads make stuff more relatable. humans like other humans. maybe it would suck, test it and see. other than that no other suggestions this time!
TuxDigital (2 years ago)
Thank you for subscribing despite the audio issues. I will be attempting to fix that for the next episode. If you have any tips other than the music being removed, please let me know. I don't mind removing the music so what else? :)
Adam Armstrong (2 years ago)
6 minutes in and the headache appearing made me stop. Skip the pointless background music next time, please. I subscribed anyways.

Thunderbird 52, direkt link from the German site: https://download.mozilla.org/?product=thunderbird-52.0-SSL&os=linux64&lang=de Lightning not working, so downgraded under Arch...
TuxDigital (2 years ago)
Oh, hadn't though of trying a different language download. Thanks. I will update the video description with this link. Yea, Lightning not working is a big issue for a lot of people.

Enjoyed this — and thanks for featuring OMG!
João Jotta (2 years ago)
Not surprised more people are complaining as people tend to do a little further to complain that to praise so... I, as you know, could care less as I would sooner go to KDE that Gnome or Unity but I am glad because this way Gnome should have a lot more contribution from Canonical.
TuxDigital (2 years ago)
I understand people complaining about the news . . . I have seen people claim they were betrayed by Shuttleworth and Canonical for not continuing and those claims are rather funny from their ridiculousness. Oddly enough, I don't like that they chose GNOME . . . I understand why they did but I would rather them pick Plasma, LXQt, or something else. The reason I don't like it is because it means the stubbornness of GNOME proves to be correct and everything they removed despite user pleas mean very little now the DE will become the defacto standard again.

It's really good to see you making videos again. Not only headlines but a ton of information about the subject, I think "This Week In Linux" is off to a great start!
TuxDigital (2 years ago)
+Big Daddy thanks a lot. I appreciate the feedback. I am glad to be back as well. I just needed a kick in the butt to get back into it and the Canonical makes a monumental announcement like that. Good a time as any.
Luiz Felipe F M Costa (2 years ago)
I really like the podcast, but the volume is too low. And will be good see casts with more people :) Thanks for the week news.
Luiz Felipe F M Costa (2 years ago)
Good to know ^^ but make the "This Week in Linux" accessible with audio only, like a podcast, too. It's good to pin the tab while I do another thing. Hey, don't stop to make videos ^^
TuxDigital (2 years ago)
Thanks and yea I agree I need to fix the volume issue. I hope to add more people to the series at some point but it's hard to schedule that kind of thing. In the meantime, I plan to add more visual elements with one being myself on camera. :) You're welcome, I'm glad you liked it.
Thomas Träger (2 years ago)
Welcome back. : D The show is exactly my thing. The most important innovation for me is "the healing brush".
TuxDigital (2 years ago)
- Thanks. :) I meant to return a long time ago but I kept putting it off . . . the news for this week kind of forced me which is probably a good thing. - Great to hear, thanks for the feedback. - yea the Healing Brush feature is fantastic. There is something similar to that in Photoshop that I've used before but I am so excited to see Krita adding that kind of feature.
