...I'm not sure if I can do video recording on my new computer.
I've been experimenting with it. The new computer is loads faster than my old one. It's basically perfect for video recording, because it can process a five minute video in twenty seconds. No more huge waiting periods in between recording sessions!
The problem is with the microphone. It makes me sound like I'm talking through my nose, from five yards away.
On my old laptop, the microphone was near the hinges of the lid. That is, they were directly above the keyboard. That way, I could talk normally while using the computer, and it would sound okay. On this new laptop, the microphone is underneath the keyboard. I have to literally talk at the keys to catch this microphone's attention.
I know there are some other options, such as record all the commentary on my old laptop, which would be a major pain. Another option is to use an external microphone, which isn't the best idea because those make my voice sound weird, too.
I'll keep looking into this issue, but for now, it's looking like I'm going to have to take an early retirement from making videos. Surprisingly, this possibility doesn't bother me as much as I expected.
