If you don't have a full-time professional website team, you might think it is too hard to add custom video to your website. But it is easily done with Windows10 video editor and Youtube. Video howtos improve sales, software products benefit from screen recordings that capture the steps to use the software, and videos always attract attention.
Windows 10 video editor
It is impossible to create the perfect video without editing. But you can create several video clips using your smartphone and then edit and piece them together with Windows10 video editor. To start, type "video editor" in your Windows 10 search bar and open the application. Create a new project and add your uploaded video clips to your new project library. Then drag the pieces into your storyboard in the order you want to show them. The video editor will let you trim or split the clips and add some special effects. Add some background music from the music selections for a professional feel and select the "finish video" option to export to an mp4 format.Read More.
To add this video to your website, you first need to publish on Youtube. Open Youtube.com and from the top left menu - three horizontal bars, choose "Your videos." You must be logged in to a Google account since Youtube is part of Google. Then select "Create" and upload your video. Once uploaded, you can just copy the code provided to embed the video into your own website and the video will stream from Youtube to users of your website. As a bonus, Youtube will track how many times your video was watched.
Capturing your screen
If you need to capture screen activity to demonstrate your product, Free Cam is free and an excellent product. Record your screen activity, export it, than add the export to your Windows 10 video editor project.
Windows 10 video editor accepts multiple video formats, including .,mov, .wmv, and .mp4. However, I have had better experience converting all files to .mp4 before before adding them to the video editor, especially if the clips are longer. Video editing requires more memory than other applications. You can convert files using any of several online free converters.
Don't forget to upload your new videos to your Facebook page and other social media and if you plan to monetize your videos, be careful with your music selection to be sure it is royalty free.
