A New Horizon for Videos

Good news everyone! At least it should be. I’m now going to be operating largely from Ubuntu. This means that I’ve changed the software I use for screen recording. Previously I used the free Microsoft Expression Encoder. Now, don’t get me wrong – it was great software – but it was a free version only, with recording times limited to 10 minutes. Now I’m using Desktop Recorder under Ubuntu so I no longer have this limit.

Serendipitously, at around the same time, YouTube have allowed me to upload videos longer than 15 minutes. These two factors combined mean that now I shall be perfectly able to upload videos as long as I like to YouTube – within reason.

The upshot? My videos can now be more complete, and hopefully split into fewer parts where applicable. If you’ve got a short attention span, perhaps you won’t be too pleased, but frankly I think this is a great way for me to improve my content!

You should be able to enjoy some long new videos soon.
