How to make a good video

Step 1: Is this a video you merely want comments on (in which case the quality of the video matters less) or a video you may want the world to see?

Step 2: Try to get lighting on your face (with the right color balance)

Step 3: Put the camera somewhat up front, so that the video audience will see you the way much of a live audience would & where you will be making eye contact with the camera.

Step 4: Set quality high.  YouTube recommends as high quality as possible because their wizardry downgrades the quality as needed.

Step 5: Try to minimize extraneous sound.  If possible, a microphone on you will help.
