    Default Warning

    A few words of warning to those viewing this category. Historically, the videos put out by a great number of people come with an agenda. That agenda is to sell you something. Therefore a lot of videos you will see on Betfair trading will make it look easy, and everyone’s a winner. This is not the reality, and you should be wary of that before viewing any videos you see on this subject matter, either here, or anywhere else.

    The most common deception tactic used is “Blue Peter” videos. These are ones they made earlier, and you will find that several have been recorded, until they find exactly the right one for you to see. There are generally 2 reasons for this...

    1. Marketing - To make it look easy, so you are suckered into parting with your money for some product or another.
    2. Ego - Most people don’t want to put out videos of them losing.

    This can be one factor as to why for the best part historically & probably for the future, the only losing videos you may see by some people is them demonstrating the “Stop Loss” functionality of a software product.

    So please, whether it be here or elsewhere, take all videos you see on this subject matter with a pinch of salt, and never buy anything from anyone using the above mentioned tactics!

    Default Recording a Video

    To record a video, you will need some software to do it. Some are free, some are not, but generally come with free trials.

    Ther free ones are...

    Camstudio - http://camstudio.org/
    Debut - http://www.nchsoftware.com/capture/index.html
    Freez - http://www.smallvideosoft.com/screen-video-capture/
    UltraVnc - http://www.uvnc.com/screenrecorder/
    Virtual dub - http://www.virtualdub.org/virtualdub_docs.html

    And the not so free ones are...

    BB Flashback - http://www.bbsoftware.co.uk/bbflashback.aspx
    Camtasia - http://www.techsmith.com/download/camtasiatrial.asp
    My screen recorder - http://www.deskshare.com/msr.aspx

    Lower screen resolution ensures a much smaller file size. Bear this in mind when recording Videos. Also, YouTube limits the length of videos to 10 minutes maximum I believe.

    When you have one ready, PM me & I will work out with the help of my video expert how to get it on YouTube .
