This is a big one. If you’ve been putting together YouTube videos for a while then you’ll no doubt have experienced some issues with sound, whether your audio is slightly rubbish or completely unusable.
Your face coz no sound
Sometimes, you’ll listen back to a shot filmed outside only to realise the wind makes it sounds like there’s a banshee behind the camera. Other times, you’ll realise your microphone wasn’t fully plugged into your camera, which means you’ve basically produced a mime tutorial.
You’re sat at your desk slowly watching your video upload, check your watch and then head to Twitter, writing: “Sorry guys, it looks like my video’s going to be slightly delayed tonight!”
This is probably one of the most common YouTuber problems and it doesn’t look like going away anytime soon. Unless you’ve got a great internet connection, slow uploading is here to stay.
Forgetting to leave links in the description
Yes, this is a more minor YouTuber problem than some others we’ve mentioned, but it’s still a nuisance.
It’s easy to forget linking to another clip or article you talked about in your video after promising your audience you’d deliver the goods. Instead, you’ve left them frustrated, tears rolling down their face through not knowing where you bought that new sweater. Shame on you.
Here’s what Twitter had to say on the subject of YouTuber problems:
My main issue is how content creation sort of eats away at you until there’s nothing left but a trembling carcass. https://t.co/OQ3W6gxUou
