  1. Hello everyone! I am so glad to see that this thread is doing so well and people are able to get their information out there. I wanted to give everyone a heads up and let you all know that starting Monday (5/4/2015) I may not be on here as much. I am graduating from graduate school tomorrow and will be moving on Monday and I don't know how long I will be without internet. I promise you I will do my best to keep this thread updated though. Have a great weekend everyone! ~Casey
  2. Good afternoon y'all! The thread is going great and I'm happy to have a list here. Be sure to spread the word and tell people to comment here so I can add them to the list!
  3. No problem! I'm happy to help however I can.
  4. Good afternoon/evening/morning everyone! I was looking through the forums and trying to think of ways that we can all help out and support each other. One thing I failed to see was a thread dedicated to everyone sharing their Twitter accounts (if they have one). Feel free to post your Twitter accounts below and I will add them to the list as often as possible! I will also do my best to check on the thread every day and update a master list that has all account names posted. Thank you for the responses in advance! ~Casey List: [as of 2:03pm CST, 4/30/15] @Cadele88 @Zyaldar @ShyguyMcFly83 @TheTolsonator @Vazio82 @Stephybot @_chrisabbey @metallistv @TheSilverspud @friedricearoni @MrCrazyXs @JPSXeserox @amdragon713 @BatteryH @mogkash or @mognationgaming @MaveOnline @OrangeLion5 @rickspies @doughboyee
  5. Thank you very much, Zyaldar! I really appreciate the tip and the subscription on YouTube. I will be sure to check out the software after work today and see what it's all about. I don't have the most experience editing videos, but that's just something to keep me motivated and working towards.
  6. Good afternoon everyone, I have been approached by multiple people, including some random folks that have seen some of my streams, that I should really work on my YouTube channel in order to boost my viewer base and raise more money for charity. I would love to do this, but I am not sure of what editing software to use in order to create decent-quality videos. As of now, I am using Windows Movie Maker (yay free things!) and I would like feedback from those with experience. If you care to look at some of my videos for reference, here is my YouTube channel link: A few videos are unedited while the rest are somewhat edited. Thank you for all of the feedback/help in advance! Have a great night everyone! ~Casey
  7. Hey everyone! Since this thread has gotten so big, here is my Twitch link for any new folks. I'll be streaming a lot more now that classes are coming to a close and work is slowing down (kind of). I'm even streaming now! Stop by and let me know what you think of my layout, sound levels, etc. Thanks everyone!
  8. I hope it went well for you!! I had to stop after 15 and a half hours, my body was fighting me every bit of the way. I'm going to make up the other 9 hours throughout this week though in hopes of raising more money.
  9. That's a great idea, thank you. I just hate to be a letdown and I've been spreading the word about the 24-hour marathon all month and to not do it kinda gets to me, but I understand what you're saying. Thank you again!
  10. Hey everyone, This is my first year streaming with Extra-Life and I'm going on hour 16 of my stream. I've been streaming alone this whole time and I can feel myself getting tired, my throat getting soar, and my eyes/head hurting. What are peoples' opinions on giving up early in the marathon? I don't wanna be "that guy" for this event, ya know? Thanks for the help!
  11. I'm going on hour 9 of my marathon and still going strong!! Join me if you can!
  12. Hmm...perhaps I should be downloading stuff for iTunes tonight.
  13. They have? Lol I just need to get back into making my own music again and just avoid that situation. Thanks for the response though!
  14. Does anyone know the official ruling on playing music during your stream? I would love to have Pandora running in the background or something like that, but I don't know if there could be legal consequences for that. Does anyone know of a free music site I can use that offers music to streamers? Thank you so much! ~Casey
  15. One thing I've noticed for myself over the past 2 weeks, I've been trying to prepare for the long day, is to be careful with foods/drinks high in sugar and caffeine. I've tested a few ways of drinking/eating them and I've found that sipping on an energy drink rather than drinking it regularly keeps me more alert for a much longer period of time. I also avoid the sugar crash. The other big thing I've found that really helps is to set your TV or monitor to lower brightness. It takes so much strain off of my eyes and I can stare at it longer without that sharp pain that I think we're all familiar with. Here's an article I found a few days ago. Some of the stuff is useful, but just ignore the bits that aren't...such as "Turn off instant messengers and emails, your cellphone, the TV, and do not surf the internet or play games". Lol that part made me laugh. Anyway, here's the link:
  16. If anyone plays ArcheAge or is curious about the game, I'm about to stream in about 10 minutes!
  17. This is a topic that I've posited to my friends through Facebook and text... When people watch streams, they are generally watching for the entertainment factor, although some watch to simply support their friends. Most games that are streamed, from what I can tell, are fast-paced, PvP oriented games rather than slower-paced, MMOs that require a lot of running around (such as SWTOR and WoW). I love playing SWTOR, but I don't feel as though the content of the game itself would be that entertaining. I could be wrong about all of this and if I am, then that will make things easier on myself. To those of you who stream a good bit: would questing be good content for streaming? I know the commentator really makes the content exciting or dull, but I'm not worried about that because I'm goofy and can make commentary out of almost anything, haha! Thanks for the help!! ~Casey Side note: I've raised $75/$200 so far!!! My first stream was awesome!
  18. That shirt looks awesome! Do you have to be a Platinum member in order to receive the shirt and have raised $200?
  19. I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm doing my first official stream for charity today! I start in about 5 minutes and I'll be playing Smite for a few hours. I've pledged $5 for every win and I'm so nervous right now!! If you wanna check it out, my channel is Stop by and say hello! Have an awesome day everyone! ~Casey
  20. This is such a great idea! I'll certainly be talking to local businesses in my area. Thanks for this awesome idea! Edit: If we do not have a website that we can put their information on, do you think it would be acceptable to put their information on our donation pages??
  21. Thank you! I'll look into what "chroma key" is now and see if I can get it to work out.
  22. Thank you so much! That really did help out. I just did my first real stream ever playing Smite and it was awesome!
  23. After reading and looking at all of the examples of overlays posted on the thread, I did my best to come up with something was simple enough that people weren't confused and something that looked fairly decent (to me). What do y'all think? You can brutally honest, I can take it. Don't mind the goof in the bottom-right... I look so weird without my glasses on, haha! Stupid glare/reflection.
  24. You're an absolute life saver! Like the chewy, watermelon flavored ones (my favorite). Thank you so much!!
  25. I was wondering if anyone uses, or knows how to set up, a stream frame? I don't know if that's the correct term, so what I'm talking about is just a little added "umph" that surrounds the screen that shows your name, your current game, and asks people to donate to Extra-Life. I don't have Photoshop, so that's definitely not an option for me lol (that price). Also, I like to stream using OBS and I'm looking for a way to see my stream chat without having the stream open too. The last time I tried to see my chat while streaming, the first ~10 seconds of audio kept looping. It sounded like there were 3-5 audio tracks going at once. I've looked online for suggestions and I've been offered a few apps that I can download. When I download them, however, it's constantly asking "Download this as well!?" and my antivirus software goes insane. Anyway, thanks for the help y'all!! I'm looking forward to the 25th and all the awesome game content to come!
