Webcams have a capacity to make significantly quality videos, yet in the event that you can’t afford to buy a smartphone, they will take care of business.
If the laptop or PC you are using doesn’t have a webcam, you can normally buy and install an external camera.
Using a camcorder can also be very good. Camcorders have quality videos just like any smartphones, but the produce preferably better pictures. commonly have preferred show quality over a cell phone or webcam.
You can also use the camcorder SD card to transfer videos from your camcorder to your laptop for editing and upload to youtube. There a handful of camcorders out there, use the ones with removable SD cards and avoid camcorders which use VHS and super 8 cameras. This is because transferring your recorded data can be difficult because of the format used in them.
You can record information from your laptop screen by downloading a 3rd party software. This 3rd party software allows to record contents on your laptop screen, and some of this software also gives you the option of recording live stream contents/videos.

Trending videos are the most watched videos on youtube. Youtube has a large presence all over the world, and this causes a variety of videos to be uploaded daily on youtube. Even though there are thousands of videos posted everyday on youtube, only a few number of them gets a massive attention.
I will give you some ideas of such videos which have a massive view and a good amount of following.
Some of the youtube videos that tend to get massive attention are:
Your idea for a youtube video can be personal, and personal video can only be viewed by people close to you whom you choose. They can only view the video when you share the video URL, meanwhile, those you share the URL with can decide to share it with others. So it’s not really personal when it comes to videos being shared on youtube.
Personal videos can be that of your wedding or friends and family weddings, party videos, tour videos, videos of you giving a speech either in a seminar or in a similar setting. Either way, you have to plan for it so to capture the best moments before moving on to edit the videos to be published on youtube.
