Vlogging vs Streaming

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Eighty Six]

The edit.

That’s it.

The difference between vlogging and streaming is editing.

But first the news:

Streaming media is multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. The verb to stream refers to the process of delivering or obtaining media in this manner. Streaming refers to the delivery method of the medium, rather than the medium itself.

On Saturday night I’ll do a stream where I’ll do an escape room – edited, LIVE, and I guarantee I’ll mess up. Start over. Fix things on air.

And be VERY human.

A video blog or video log, sometimes shortened to vlog, is a form of blog for which the medium is video, and is a form of web television. Vlog entries often combine embedded video with supporting text, images, and other metadata. Entries can be recorded in one take or cut into multiple parts.

On SUNDAY I’ll edit that the stream from Saturday night to do a highlight reel. It’ll go from a little over an hour to a minute or two in length. There will be no bloopers unless I purposefully leave them there.

And, if I want to, I’ll seem More Human Than Human.

But I Just Wrote A Post Nine Hours Ago

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Eighty One]

Writing one article right before bed and then another right before getting out of bed SUCKS.

But first the news:

I’ve got thirty SIX subscribers on YouTube!! !

Only sixty four more to a pretty link!! !

But, more importantly, I read “How to Shoot Video That Doesn’t Suck” – not just that trailer, but the whole book.

Get ready for some hopefully not as suck videos!

Confessions of a Gamer

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Fifty Three]

Last night I live stream FAILED on twitch.tv, twitter, and youtube – failed in that I got SUPER stuck solving the escape room I was doing and I ended up looking at the solutions and STILL didn’t understand what I did wrong.

But first the news:

Except I don’t actually count it as a fail because I figured out a few things.

UNLOCK! The Night of the Boogeymen #LiveStream

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Fifty Two]

Holy hell, I’m up past my bedtime, my throat hurts from talking for TWO AND A HALF HOURS non-stop, and I was standing that whole time, too.

I have no idea how coherent this one’s gonna be.

But first the news:

Special extra awesome shout out to my bestie from the mid-westie who stayed on the stream the entire time, adding comments and ANSWERING CLUES in real time.

Hi, H!

And another shout out to a second Twitch follower who joined the stream at the end for a few minutes of chats and then a follower from Twitter (?!) who joined from Russia right as I was signing out and as much as I wanted to stay on and chat it up, I was EX. HAUS. TED.


I *am* EX. HAUS. TED.

Escape Room: Enigmati-c-aper Puzzle Room

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Forty One]

Doing a live stream at night isn’t so exhausting in the moment, but afterwards, yeah, I could go to bed NOW.

Maybe Monday night isn’t so wise.

But first the news:

I’m also thinking of night streaming on Saturday nights, which makes more sense because I can actually “sleep in” two whole hours on Sunday mornings, but tomorrow morning? Bright and early at 0715, damnit.

Earlier, if one of the kids says so.
