  1. In mid-2012 I wrote a short post on the old forums detailing how I keep up with the overwhelming volume of content DSP puts out, since I noticed people were having issues watching even one or two playthroughs at a time since there were simply too many videos put out. While the basics of what I do remain the same, I've chosen to update the "guide" now since I've been putting these ideas to great use to keep up with the Witcher 3 playthrough. By doing the following, I've been able to cover a 25-minute part in 7-10 minutes while missing very little if any critical content. PLATFORM While I'd love to sit back and watch these playthroughs on a big TV or on-the-go on my phone, the reality is that the control over video playback offered by the full desktop version of YouTube is unparalleled. That said, here's how I've customized the desktop experience: First thing's first - we need a way to save the playlist so that we can quickly return to it. You can access DSP's playlists from his channel, or more quickly, search the name of the game along with "DSPGaming", and one of the first results should be the playlist you're looking for. Upon clicking "View full playlist", clicking the "+ Save" button provides a link to this playthrough in your own saved playlists that can be easily returned to on any platform. Best of all, it updates automatically whenever Phil adds new videos to it, so you won't have to deal with constantly adding new videos to your "watch later" playlist or deleting watched ones, and you won't have to make your own playlists. EXTENSIONS There's really only one Chrome extension I use to modify YouTube, and that's "Magic Actions for YouTube™", found here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/magic-actions-for-youtube/abjcfabbhafbcdfjoecdgepllmpfceif?hl=en Most notably, this extension provides the dark theme for YouTube that makes long viewing sessions much easier on the eyes (Accessible by clicking the light switch seen at the top left corner of the screen). However, I also employ the following particular functions when watching a playthrough (Accessed by clicking the gear (third icon from the left below the video panel)): Instant control over volume - This allows you to control the volume (independently from system volume) by scrolling the mouse wheel while the cursor is placed over the video panel. Enable Auto HD - Very useful for loading videos at a specific quality (I.E. - the quality which you deem best for your internet connection/viewing speed).Enable Auto WideSpeed Booster - While I've yet to take time out to test video loading speed with this on vs. off, there have been reports that total buffering time is indeed shortened with it on.One last thing I'd like to point out is the Chrome extension "AdBlock": https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adblock/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom?hl=en While I use it and feel all Chrome users should, I've long since opted to whitelist DSP's channels. This can be done in the following way: In Chrome, click the Options button > More Tools > Extensions.Find "AdBlock" in the list of installed exensions and click "options". Also, if you don't already have it showing, click "show button".In the AdBlock options menu, check the box labelled "Allow whitelisting of specific YouTube channels"Go to the channel you'd like to whitelist.Click the AdBlock button in Chrome and click "Whitelist ______ channel"Confirm this by ensuring the AdBlock button has turned green while on the channel page you whitelisted.WATCHING THE PLAYTHROUGHS Now that you've got quick and easy access to the playthroughs and a good YouTube player setup to watch them with, it's time to start watching. The upside to DSP's style of uploading raw, unedited gameplay footage is that it provides the closest approximation to actually playing the game yourself. The downside to this is that you may quickly find yourself wanting to skip ahead when there's a break in the action. This can prove difficult, however, since blindly clicking on the video progress bar will often lead to missing something important, then having to tediously backtrack to find out what you missed. Because of this, I usually rely on the following technique to make up time and keep things moving: Upon the video page first loading, bring the main video panel into focus by clicking anywhere in the panel (I prefer clicking the area below the progress bar, as this prevents the video from pausing)(Optional) Hit F to enter fullscreen modeWatch the video as normally, using the right arrow key liberally to skip 5 secondsThis will allow you to exercise the greatest amount of control over how quickly you make your way through videos, thereby preventing you from accidentally skipping important parts. You may have noticed in the past though that sometimes you can get away with skipping whole minutes, if not 10-minute blocks at a time. In cases like these, I like to click and drag the progress slider. If you're watching a fully-processed video, thumbnails will come up along the bottom of the player panel letting you see what's happening at a given timestamp. This is great for skipping larger chunks of time that are easily distinguishable at a glance, such as loading screens, inventory/shop screens, or large sections of backtracking. It can prove especially useful when watching a playthrough of a game where a death, for instance, means having to work your way back through 10+ minutes of progress. VIDEO QUALITY One final thing to consider: How important is video quality to you? Depending on your connection, you may not be able to buffer videos quickly enough to sustain skipping through whole minutes of a video at a time. If you're in this position, the problem may have been exacerbated when YouTube enabled 60 fps video for 720p and 1080p qualities. It might be a tough pill to swallow, but if you're really trying to make your way through a playthrough and don't want to wait for buffering, I'd recommend watching the highest quality your connection can manage that still allows enough buffer to skip freely through parts of the video. CONCLUSION I'd like to thank everyone for reading, hopefully following the steps covered will help you watch a playthrough that you previously didn't have the time for or just found too boring to continue.
  2. Here is the 8K video, are you able to watch it on your pc without the video chopping up? I tried I cant.
  3. Hey there, I wasn't sure where to put this. I've decided that I want to try being a youtube gaming channel, I've ordered most of the equipment(gaming monitor, capture card, mic, headset). The thing I wanted advice on was the whole editing side. I see that the people that use monitors tend to use two, one for gaming and the other being a desktop used for editing. I'm wondering do I have to get a desktop or a mac for editing or would I be able to do that on my laptop it's an Asus, Intel core i5, 750 gig HDD and 4 gig RAM. P.S Editing software suggestions would be good, I'm thinking just go for an Adobe package that includes photoshop and premier pro at £15.50 a month. Thank you in advance.
  4. Dearly Beloved is one of my favourite pieces so I thought I'd have a go at covering it. If you're wondering what happened at the end, I made a mistake and had to cut the video. Thanks for watching anyway.
  5. There's no forum for feedback so i'll just have to post it on suggestions forum but may I ask why Phil always separates the dlc's from the main game playlist? Like a big example if the Resident Evil Revelations 2 episodes couldn't all them simply be added into one playlist? That way people can have the one playlist to watch all the episodes in If I remember right google improved the playlist to hold 1000 videos last year or something so having multiple playlists of the same game with dlc seems rather messy than having a one playlist with everything. I can understand if he made a new Playlist for New Game Plus for like dark souls or Bloodborne but it's just something i wanted to ask about.

    Thumbnail Fanart?

    Hello Phil, I wanted to ask you if you are interested in thumbnail fanart for your playthroughs on your youtube channel? And what do you guys on the Forum think of it? Do you want thumbnail pictures for the Videos or not?
