Four Ways to Have Better Sound Quality YouTube Recordings

Four Ways to Have Better Sound Quality YouTube Recordings

YouTube recordings can help you reach out to a number of people and become popular quickly. Not only will people watch you online, but they may also download your video with the help of free and speedy online converting tools like ytmp3 which seamlessly converts the video into an audio format. Before you upload the video, it is important to optimise the sound quality and here’s how to go about it.

1. Take care of the microphone.

One of the main things that decide the audio quality of your YouTube video is the manner in which the sound is recorded. Your computer has a built-in microphone which is convenient to use, but can pick up the sound in the entire room where you are recording. This leads to reduced sound quality of the music or voice meant to be recorded due to a lot of background noise being picked up, especially in the comparatively quieter portions of the recording.

To avoid this, you need to use an external microphone. It will definitely give you a higher quality of sound. This is because when you are using an external microphone you can place it nearer to the source of the sound, which ensures that unnecessary noise is reduced. To record individual voices you can get lapel-clip microphones at cost-effective rates from a number of electronics stores. If you wish to go for group music or group recordings, USB microphones are a great option.

2. Gain adequate knowledge about the supported file formats.

It is good to know that there are certain file formats which are most compatible with YouTube. That is, YouTube operates at its best with these formats. There is always the option of uploading various other types of files, but you run the risk of the final product being of reduced quality and a number of issues cropping up. AVI, MOV, 3GPP,MPEG4, FLV, and WMV are some of the supported formats which are actually common outputs from digital camera recorders, webcams, and video cameras.

3. Do not indulge in excessive editing.

You might think that the more you edit, the better the video, but do you know that too much editing is one of the main reasons behind poor audio quality? As you set about editing a video, take utmost care. Otherwise, it might take a toll on the quality especially if the sound is being manipulated through adding effects.

As per the recommendations of YouTube, to obtain the best possible audio, video files must have maximum similarity to the original quality. Usage of original videos might not always be possible, so in order to reduce the amount of damage you can make sure that the audio track is as long as the video track. This means that both the tracks should start off at the identical time stamp and also end together. Remember that there can be issues with your audio if the timings of the two tracks differ by even a few seconds.

4. Choose export settings of best quality.

The uploaded videos must be optimised for streaming. In order to achieve this, YouTube converts these videos to a format and size that will operate well with the internal systems. One of the drawbacks of this process is that a number of larger video files tend to get compressed while the procedure is being carried out. In turn, this leads to poor quality.

If your aim is to obtain the best quality audio, then follow the recommendations of YouTube which says that you should maintain the original format and size while uploading your file. If you want to keep the quality intact, do not opt for a lower size.

The majority of video editing programs make room for numerous file formats during the export procedure. It is advisable to go for the superior quality settings rather than exporting the video for email or the web.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
