An attempt of posting a youtube video

For the Ex-Voxers – most of you know this video 😉
For those who don’t know it  some facts:

We call the project “Go For 2” The name of the song is “Valle Gran Rey”.

My friend plays the lead electric guitar (a Gibson “Les Paul”) for the melody and made some improvisations over the groove. Additionally he played  some acoustic guitars and arranged the funky part of the song.

I play the second electric guitar ( a “Strat”) – the second voice on the melody track, the keyboards, synthesizers, drums and percussion (most of that stuff on a step arranger), not to forget some acoustic guitars and the vocals.

The backline arrangements and my vocals I recorded  at my home. The additional lead instruments and the other acoustic and electric guitars were recorded at my friend’s studio where we also produced it and made the final mix.

And here it is!

Thank you for your tutorial freedomsmith, but I have only a link on my post – no image…

What was the mistake I made?


My first impressions when I checked the file (particularly interesting for Ex-Voxers):

1. the quality of the video is much better!

2. I never heard such a authentic sound – so near to the master file we produced as a wav.file

3. It may take some time to upload the stream – particularly the best (720 pixels) version – so what!?

kindest regards

  2. Hello..I spent three harrowing days..wowee..here is what I learned..go to the video you like..copy the URL off the embed code..(it is also on the address bar..may not be complete..and in your ‘history’..copy it..go back to your blog..go to ‘New Post’..make sure your ‘visual editor’ is off and just HTML is on..click the ‘insert video’..when you get there..click ‘URL’..then copy the prefix of the video service..example..[youtube=http://www.you tube.com/watch?v=(this part is always the same)then replace the numbers after the v=with the code you got at the site (just the code after v=)..you can also cut and paste it if you like..there are four ways to do it..this one worked for me..it is the same basically with google and dailymotion. Some of the videos do not download correctly..if the code is correct it is not you fault. Just find another site for the same song. After it is in the command bar press ‘insert video’..it will have the URL on your post..then ‘view post’..the video should be there..if there is a wait or error message do not hold your breath..just do it again..hope this was a help..If you are doing your own..there are a couple of differences..Peace Tony
