Youtube, any cloud drive, or some temporary hosting service, like streamable.com/mixtape.moe/etc, etc?

It will demonstrate OpenMPT, it's like a advertising inspired film that durates around 3 minutes.

First it starts of with the screen-recording of opening OpenMPT, and then a tune is loaded which plays as bgm throughout the video.

After the intense-increment of the tune, a slideshow of screenshots and video-clips, showing the process of making modules and usage of the different parts in OpenMPT, starts.

This goes on until the ending of the bgm, when the video transits back to the screen-rec of the bgm-tune. Then in the last 10 seconds of the video, the OpenMPT Title and logo is shown with additional information.

I thought it would be nice to have a video showing of OpenMPT on the homepage of the website.
That's only my own thoughts and ideas tho, and it may be unecessary since videos takes "some" space on drives :/.

Can you just please take another track?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUQ0Q21alKk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCb8r0DyOcc

or something better from my channel for example.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlG2D6obKhs
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tig89UFaEAI

I can capture patterns if it's needed.


I guess, this will attract more people rather than regular modules that wouldn't attract new users except 1.5 of oldschoolers maybe.

I can agree that my track sounds too 80's/90's inspired for getting larger attention, but those tastes makes a hint about where the trackers originates from. What about mixing elements from modern music and oldskool retrostyle? of course it gets interesting if todays music elements are used (I'm stuck in the 00's, maybe thats the reason for the boring track?). I'm not against remixes of the bgm (which are potentially improvements), but yes we can use another tune if more people agree.

Quite frankly I am not very keen on having such a video on the OpenMPT homepage for various, and these kind of discussions are one of them.

I agree with Saga Musix here.

But aside from topics like this, there is one simple reason why we don't really need such video;

Other software is often paid, and then the videos are there both as tutorial and advertisement. To show why you want to try the software, so you can see what it can do even though it will cost you money if you decide to do so.

OpenMPT is free. If you want to try it, you can for free. If you like it enough, you can continue to do so for free. This is a big difference. OpenMPT does not need to prove itself, and has a big enough name so other musicians will find out about it soon enough.

I completely understand, this was just a thought, and I was aware that it would've been turned down anyway :)

That's not true. There is still a chance that someone will randomly find this video and check out OpenMPT. Like you said, "to show why you want to try the software". If it's free, it will attract even more people. We really need new users. Perhaps, someone who would make high-quality commercial music. Only the community will stop being bogged down in chiptunes and grow up into something modern. You may not agree, that's my pragmatic view. I want the best for OpenMPT.

I don't care about what they think. This looks like they live in their small "OpenMPT is only for oldschool, chiptunes" world. That's why OpenMPT is less popular even if it is better than Renoise in some aspects.
