Steps to Create YouTube Video
Here are the steps I used to help me create a YouTube channel
(I watched YouTube videos to help learn about YouTube)


The main YouTube channel that I used for guidance was

How to Create YouTube Channel
How to Create A YouTube Channel! (2020 Beginner’s Guide)
From Justin Brown – Primal Video
Video does a good job in an introduction of creating a YouTube Video

Broad Overview in the Next Video
I using this example here, for this was the first video I saw that put everything together
* Audio text process
* Audio File
* Video editor

Best Text to Speech Generator for YouTube Videos (REAL VOICE)
From Kavi Senanayake
video focused on having computer text.
The video focused on a particular tool called IBM Watson that would give a person text audio sound.
The video showed a person type in text and then get an audio text file
When I tried it, it did not work (the file would not load)

The reason I am including this – was this was the first video that gave me a broad outline, a broad view of putting a video together, was not the purpose of the video, but the person goes through quickly the following tools

Audio text process– person types in text and then an audio is created
What is important here is the person suggests that if dealing with audio files; break it up into 30 to 45 second segments.  And creates a separate audio file for each slice. Used IBM Watson (did not work when I tried it)

Audio file – used Audacity
Person goes through the steps quickly; but notice that the person puts the audio files in the order of the presentation.
Each audio file will create their own wavelength Row with each row having the wavelength square in the Row.
The person pushes each wavelength square further to the right as to be the next audio file in the presentation.  So it goes like
(1st row) audio file first audio bit
(2nd row)                                  Next audio file second audio bit
(3rd row)                                                                                  Next audio bit
So, he organizes the many different audio bits by pushing each square further to the right.
So, when he starts the audio – the audio machine will reach the first row, the second row, and so on.

He then saves all the different audio into one big file (the big file having all the different smaller audio files). The person uses Audacity to create one audio file to then put in the Video Editor

Video Editor
            Then he uses a video editor to organize the audio and video parts (I do not use the one presented in video)

I was just showing you this video to give broad “outline” of the entire process – or this was a video that gave me the entire broad “outline”

Audacity – the audio file tool

DaVinci Resolve – COMPLETE Tutorial for Beginners!

Here a video to learn how to use that tool.  I think good interview to get introduced to the DaVinci Resolve – some parts lost me; but it is a good introductory video to learn how to use the tool.  Only problem is does not give a description of where to find DaVinci (next video begins with that information)

Other Stuff
How to find music for your video
Video Background Music: Best Royalty Free Music Sites (2020 Review!)
From Justin Brown – Primal Video

Thought the free stuff could create legal problems – thought other paid sites where better – thought Artlist: was a good place to pay for license and then have a great deal of room to use the music (I have not done it myself; but if I use music – I will probably look at Artlist myself)

Photographs (this is from a website)
Looked at web sites that gave permission to use photographs for commercial use.
I found Pixabay to be a good site
Images from Pixabay ( – licensed to allow images for commercial use.
Need images for commercial use check out Pixabay.  Images are free to use.
Check Pixabay “Simplified Pixabay License” for specific details
(at the time of going to the web page – access found by Clicking)
Type in:
            Then click
Explore (located in the right-hand corner of the screen)
Screen will appear under “Explore” the select
FAQ (under the “About” column in screen that appears)
Can I use your images?
                        Learn more
                        Then you will have the “Simplified Pixabay License”)
There were some restrictions if the photograph had people in it; so, I been using photographs that do not have people in it.

How to structure the video

How to Add Subtitles on YouTube Videos Fast & ACCURATE!
Justin Brown – Primal Video

It appears you can have YouTube itself do the Closed Captions automatically for free; but the accuracy may not be there – appears to be an option where you can manually look at it to see if it is accurate.  The person then mentioned a paid option that done by humans (to expensive for me; but an option for people)

How to create the YouTube Banner (that thing on the top when you go to a YouTube channel)
How to Make a YouTube Banner (YouTube Channel Art Tutorial!)
Justin Brown – Primal Video

I did not use the program in the video Snappa – I used Canva myself.  Both Snappa and Canva are free to use (Canva does have some content that one does pay for; but the basic stuff is free).  One aspect to the video is making sure what you design works for different devices; I used Canva – and just centered the thing I wanted which was just words that said “Live Your Life Learning” – but Snappa gives you guidance on how to tell what sections you need to look at (better explained in video)

Happy creating. 😊
