Ten questions about using Linux to make digital video's for (mostly) YouTube and other internet platforms


Ten questions about using Linux to make digital video's. (Note: I'm currently using two Debian-based distro's: Linux Mint (on my Desktop PC) and MX Linux (on my laptop PC), but I plan to try plain vanilla Debian sometime in the future).

1)What is the process for making a digital video and audio recording of myself either sitting at my desktop PC or "on location" out in the world at various different locations and then later using Linux to do it?
2)How do I then do very simple video and audio editing of the file in Linux?
3)What about live-streaming options? How is that done on Linux and which websites are available for it other than Twitch?
4)What kind of video and audio recording camera and software do I need? 5)What is the current video and audio recording standards today in 2019 for sharing videos over the internet, especially current YouTube video and audio standards?
6)How does Patraeon work for a YouTube account?
7)How does a Vlog or Video Blog work?
8)What other internet video hosting concepts are there for me to share my videos on other than YouTube or Twitch?
10)What if I wanted to record myself playing a console video game vs. a PC desktop game? How would the process between those two differ?

If you know the answer to one or any or all of these questions, please write which question number you are answering in your reply. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

This is how Linuxquestions works: You do your own research, share what you found and then ask specific questions. In your particular case, use DuckDuckGo or any other search engine. You could start by literally putting your questions in the search form, for example https://duckduckgo.com/?q=How+does+P...3F&t=h_&ia=web

What if I just wanted to play tabletop pen and paper RPG's and MMORPG's with my friends using a live video and audio feed? How would that differ? ....or would it?

Very specific questions usually don't work well with search engines.

They work very well. Besides, Linuxquestions is great for asking specific questions, but yours are not specific.

This is how I work. LinuxQuestions is, after all, all about asking questions isn't it?

This is how LinuxQuestions works.

Please review that page, especially the linked article, How to Ask Questions the Smart Way.

Please remember that everyone here volunteers their time and may choose which questions they will take the time to try to understand and answer. The better your question, the better the replies you will receive.

In general, asking others to provide a complete set of detailed instructions for performing some task or solving a problem is not acceptable. Do your own research and try to work out your own solutions. Then, if you get stuck you will have a much more specific question, and will have acquired knowledge of your own to help you understand the suggestions offered.

LQ is all about sharing knowledge and helping others to understand specific problems, but should not be treated as a help desk or product support service.

Rather than chastise and lecture me... how about providing an example of how I should have asked an acceptable question instead. Keep in mind I'm a beginner (I loathe the word "newbie", it's such juvenile slang). People now days are quick to castigate and be hateful rather than do what's right and mold the conversation in a more constructive direction by providing a positive example.

Search this: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=How+does+P...3F&t=h_&ia=web. You might read a few articles, such as https://grow.grin.co/overview-youtube-fan-funding/, and have a better understanding how you can use Patreon. Perhaps all your questions are answered, perhaps some questions remain, perhaps there are new questions.

A specific question might be: "I found out how to set up a Patreon account. Are there any special conditions or recommendations for Patreon accounts for Youtube channels? Or perhaps, is there no difference between Patreon accounts for Youtube and for other activities?"

Rather than "how does a vlog work", you might ask "I have found a few recommended video cameras. Which of the following models is supported by Linux?" or "when I research video capture and editing software for vloggers, recommended tools are invariably based on Windows or MacOS. What are Linux equivalents for the following products: ...".

Seems like a classical example of a help vampire asking the Impossible Question.

13 years later, however, this sort of behaviour seems to be the standard and any criticism gets promptly turned around:
