Have you ever uploaded gaming related videos to YouTube or streamed your play on Twitch?

I did a YouTube channel for maybe a year. I wasn't very good at it. I got up to about 1000 subs and finally called it quits. I just checked and it's dwindled down to around 600 subs now. My most watched video was around 1600 views.

I mostly did indie horror games.

I've never streamed to Twitch.

Every now and then I think I'd like to make a video on something, but it takes so much time that I just never commit to doing it.

How about you all?

I would never stream myself playing, that would just feel weird to me. However, I have thought about making in-game videos of certain games I play, but just the game play; then editing the different segments, putting them together, and maybe adding music.

I haven't really investigated that much, but I do think about it a lot, and I believe it's fairly easy to do with the Nvidia Experience Overlay. I'd love to do some segments of my modded Skyrim or FO4 playthroughs, just haven't taken the time to do it.

For those who have taken in game videos of their gameplay, how much of a resource hog is that going to be on my system, with the video recorder going, the game playing (especially a modded game)?

I know @Frag Maniac probably has before, or maybe he just uploads videos. I am not that observant to notice.

I have never done it myself, I don't want an audience. I don't need followers, I prefer to be ignored.
Yeah sure I've uploaded and posted tons of videos, and even worked extensively on video walkthrough guides of games like Ghost Recon Wildlands, The Evil Within, Doom Eternal, F.E.A.R. , and original Far Cry. When I make a guide it's generally on the hardest or 2nd hardest difficulty mode, and often with no upgrades, or even no HUD like in GRW. With F.E.A.R. and original Far Cry, I did them no scratch on hardest modes.

Generally when I pick 2nd hardest mode vs hardest it's due to the hardest mode being a restart the game if you die thing, or because the AI have robot-like inhuman response times and accuracy, requiring all upgrades to battle, many of which are very unrealistic. This is why Doom Eternal and Ghost Recon Wildlands were done on Nightmare and Extreme. I have beaten GRW on Tier One mode, and made it all the way to actual Tier 1, but it felt very silly and arcade. I had WAY more fun and just as much challenge playing it on Extreme with no upgrades or HUD.

The reason you don't see any of my videos here is I tried posting them one after the other like I've done on other forums, and the staff at the time took it as "spamming my channel", and deleted them. However I've since been told by some of the staff that's not how they do things now, so I may try posting some of them again, just to see how it goes.

I have never streamed though, and don't plan to. It doesn't interest me at all. The main reasons streaming isn't for me are, 1), I typically don't put up spontaneous content. I usually only post stuff I've gotten to know very well and already have a strategy and tactics in mind. 2), I'm not the type that feels comfortable showing myself or even narrating content in a public capacity, for security reasons. 3) there are many performance related problems with streaming that require a pretty good PC and IPS to overcome, if you want good video quality.

i did upload one or 2 videos on youtube but they were like 30 second videos from like Doorkickers and frozen synapse. I think it was more experimenting and visual aid when it game to queries for a particular game. In Doorkickers case i was wondering how i could do a breach, bang and clear move in the game.

Usually just to show off SoulCalibur VI custom characters, though i also record some clips of other games if i feel like they gotta be shared.

There's also the occasional topic that I feel like i need to speak out about, though that rarely comes up unless it's an issue that's personal to me that also happens to relate to gaming.

I think Nvidia Experience is very light weight and shouldn't cause much problem.

Streamed few times. Mostly SC2 ladder when I was still active, and somehow few people wanted to see my gameplay. Not that it was anywhere near good level (like a pro or at least semi pro), but apparently I had such annoying style to play against that some people enjoyed suffering of my opponents.
Or they wanted to see me rage at some cheese or lament the general state of humankind.

Haven't streamed in a long time tho. Never had webcam or barely any overlay.
