More quality videos of Minetest!

by runs » Tue Dec 25, 2018 23:33

To Minetest increases popularity needs more videos in YouTube, that squeakers (10-13 years old) love.

Minecraft was Minecraft due to Youtube in part.

just what we need..., servers overflowing with bratty, obnoxious, irritating, and rude babies.
I'm not your buddy, guy...

Is this a troll thread? So you're saying that Minetest Videos should make mod review videos like PopularMMOs? It would be a total disaster. I like how Minetest Videos (Nathan Saplat) presents the mods in a calm and informative way. I hate PopularMMOs tho, his videos look like this:
[Cringy Dubstep music]
Hey guys this is POPULARMMOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
TODAY I WILL SHOW AN AMAZING MOD CALLED MOBS_MONSTERS
The first monster I will show will be... Hmmmmmmmmhhh... A zombie!
Okay... WTFFFF????????? OMG! OMG! OMG! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! F**K I DIED

Yes, it is called entertainment...

Minetest videos are calm = Boring. 30 min or more of the sickle to death, like a documentary about lions in the savannah. The audience is not engaged. It is a big problem!!!

The popular Minecraft videos have millions of visits. Young youtubers that talk with a enthusiastic voice and winking the teen target.

OMG, the Minetets reviewers also do not show their faces. People love to know who are the youtubers, especially if they are young and cute.

The opposite would be to condemn Minetest to the most absolute obstracism...

But watch out, I'm not saying there shouldn't be all kinds of videos, but right now there are only boring videos.

I will do some Minetest videos, but of course, with a lot of secrets, mystery, crazy comments and a lot of fun. And if I have to break a keyboard and get all crazy, I'll do it. :-D

Stay tuned.

Minetest mod review videos are boring? Maybe for you...
I'm not saying all videos should be purely educational, I'm saying that they should be informative and also entertaining but they shouldn't be a copy of each other with slight changes like PopularMMOs does with his lucky block videos. This reminds me of Elsagate(viewtopic.php?f=56&t=21656) a bit

I wish there were such documentations nowadays. But it seems like it’s all about exaggerated screaming and action movie like cuts.

So you’re watching for the person not for the content. That’s fine.

How dare you insult the honest work of Cat5 TV and RobbieF's daughter. Just because its made by and intended for younger audiences doesn't make it cringy.

Personally I think we need more creative content and original games that people will want to check out. Minetest itself is more likely to attract modders than players, but the servers and games built atop are what could really draw some attention.

Many popular series based around MC (such as the Hermitcraft series) don't show player's faces, but this is used for jokes about the players being inside the world of the server and ends up adding to the videos.

Really?
cringy MT videos for 10 year olds

That's an insult, towards the video sure, but it's still an insult.

More Content Creators will come when there is more things worth making content for, because until we have more to show than the standard fork of MTG, we'll still be seen as a Minecraft ripoff with nothing more to offer.

I think something getting lost in here is that apart from whether or not they should ape the flashy kid-oriented Minecraft videos, (they shouldn't!) I feel like the Minetest video community could still improve their craft (heh) in places.

Like I don't wanna point fingers, but some folks could do with maybe whipping up a quick script and/or doing a rehearsal run before they start recording for real. A bit of "oh I should have built one of these to show this part of the mod off.... okay... hang on.. wait that's not right" is fine with me, since I can always skip ahead, but it definitely looks sloppy.

I made a few videos for ITB (See: https://minetest.foo-projects.org/videos.html ). Of course, the purpose wasn't "cool youtube generation entertainment" but more for people who need to learn how to build boxes and use the special blocks. I haven't gotten too much feedback, though, but it was fun making them and trying to put some quality in them.

Very straightforward and informative. Quality is great.

I like that style. And a documentary about lions in the savannah may be great and much more entertaining than say a film about something where the creators forgot the story and just conentrated on special effects. I definitely don't like it if somebody yells loudly. Still, it might be worth if the creator of the video did some preparations and shows what he has to show short and to the point, while other scenes/videos may live from the creator just walking around/building/mining leisurally and talking about some not even MT-related topic.

But then, I'm not a kid anymore. Maybe that audience needs other videos.
