Nice Tips For Recording Xbox 360 Gameplay

“If you’re reading this, then I’m guessing you and your fellow buddies get serious with Battlefield or any other Xbox 360 video game, but a lot of your friends are creating videos to the internet sporting their most recent kill streaks and sniping locations.

Would you like to join the video club and YouTube your own youtube videos? If so I’ll explain how you go about doing it. First, you will want to choose a xbox game card. There are a few types; There are usb and pci cards. The pci gameplay cards must be installed into your computer; you will need to open up the system and in essence you have to be kind of crafty if you make a choice to use this method. However, I highly recommend finding a usb type of recording card. Some great cards are made by Roxio, Dazzle, and Hauppauge.

When shopping around for the best capture card that meets your requirements, try and check to see what kind of connection the card has. For example, The Dazzle card is not compatible with component cables and therefore does not have the capability to record in true HD. Lots of the video clips I see on the Internet are only 480p non-HD. Therefore if you have no concern with the lower quality vids, then the Dazzle card is all you actually would need. Having said that, If you prefer to record in HD, then you will want to consider buying a game card that uses component cables. Two such cards are the Roxio card and the Hauppauge card. Both of these use component cables. The Roxio card records up to 720p (HD quality) and The

Hauppauge cards can record up to 1080i (also HD quality).

Listed below are a few different tips to begin with.

Capture cards are shipped with their own recording and editing software. This software also offers you a setting to promptly publish your recent video direct to YouTube. However, do not use this method! You can achieve better quality videos if at first you export your video to a 720p file, and then log into YouTube channel and manually upload the created file.
For reasons uknown, the game card devices cause distortion when the box is located too close to your television screen. If your screen is seeing blue lines, haze, or a static picture, simply relocate your game card a little ways away from the television set.

If you use a desktop and not a laptop, then the supplied usb cable possibly may not reach all the way to your desktop. You can find extension cables on the web or at any computer stores.

The video recording software is actually very resource intensive, Therefore I recommend that you close all of your other programs as well as any and all open internet windows, etc. before you start recording. And finally, if you are experiencing audio drops in your recordings, you will want to turn off automatic updates for windows, any automatic backups or scans that you may have your virus protection set to, etc. By the way: You can find the Windows Update settings in the control panel under ‘Sytem and Security’.

Well, happy recordings! I hope you found this article helpful.”

Tips When Finding A Domain Name

“If you have arrived at the stage where you have a business that you would like to present online, then you will need to build a website and take care of domain name registration. The domain name that you choose will be your unique website address and you will use it in your advertising and marketing to attract visitors to your site. Right now, because there are so many people starting internet businesses, it can be challenging to find the right domain for your site.

There are many domain registration companies that provide name registration services for domain names. The registrars all have access to and search through a centralized database that contains all of the records of current domain names.

This database includes basic information about who registered the domain, or hostname, and when the registration will expire. When registering a domain, the minimum period of time is one year, yet most registrars allow the domain to be registered for up to ten years.

Most people will choose a domain name that reflects the theme of their website that they plan to build. Their domain web hosting also uses that website address. Others prefer to register a domain that includes all or part of their name, making it very personal.

Choosing a domain or hostname, is an important part of starting a web-based business. The name you choose for your domain it is the main thing that people need to remember so that they can find your website and it is what you will be promoting through your advertising and marketing efforts.

In essence, the domain name for a website becomes the “”brand”” that is most visible through marketing strategies. As anyone who has been around marketing can attest to, branding is a very important and fundamental element in building a name and reputation for any kind of business entity. This is why it can be a challenge to find the perfect name for your site, and why there is so much competition to register names that are descriptive, short and memorable.

Once you have found a good hostname that is available and you have had it registered, be sure to keep your contact information current with the registrar that you used and make a note of the date that your registration will expire. If you have been able to secure a good name, then be careful not to let it expire.

If you don’t renew it because you didn’t receive the renewal email notice from the registrar, then someone else could easily come along and register your domain. When that happens, all of the marketing and advertising you have done will no longer benefit you and your website, but will go to the new owner of the domain.

After the domain name has been registered, the next thing you will need, if you don’t have it already, is a domain web hosting package that will provide the server space where your site files will reside. Your new domain needs to be forwarded to the web servers of your hosting provider, then in short order your site will be live and ready to receive visitors.”
