Every good YouTuber worth its salt must know the technology and tools with which it works. First of all, and I'm sure we already have a computer. With it we will edit the videos we record and also upload them. It does not have to be the most powerful, but we must ensure that it gives good performance.
Why? Very simple, editing video can be a demanding process for the computer and it is important that you have a good graphics card so you can do it without getting frustrated. What else? A camera, which is included in your laptop is fine to start but we need something else.
We recommend using a high quality webcam, such as this HP model that records in high definition. Another option is to use a camcorder and a tripod, we have many options to choose which solution best suits us. If we are starting on this, it is best to do it little by little.
If we want to record our games to video games, we will need a video capturer. This accessory allows us to take the sound and video signal from the console and record it on our computer and then mount it.

While playing, you can record the sound of your voice with headphones with a built-in microphone. The Ax180 of Tritton are very good and the Turtle Beach Px22 are another good option. We will also need software to mount video, here are many options to choose from. The best, if we are starting, is to take a simple software.

While uploading, we can go putting details to our video: title, description, tags ... Remember that you can then use the YouTube editing tools to add tags to the video or even edit it, in case you don't want to do it directly from the computer before upload it.
Once it is uploaded and processed, we can start sharing the video on our social networks. If we are going to devote ourselves to this seriously, it may be convenient to make an account on Twitter and Facebook to make yourself known. It is free and is an excellent means of promotion.
