This tutorial is not good enough?

As well other interesting stuff.

Good job! Hope you'll keep making more vids on UnrealEd. UT99 is still the best.
Here are my comments, I hope you find them useful:
1) In order to keep your video as short as possible (so that viewers will watch the whole thing in one go), have your video start at the latest possible time. In this example, I would have pre-built the 5 rooms, doorways and red buttons. Maybe the PlayerStarts too. So your video starts with you assigning Teams to the PlayerStarts, and changing GameType = Assault. That would reduce the video length by around 6 - 7 minutes. I try to keep my videos under 15 minutes, and if the content is too long then I simply make two videos instead of one.
2) I always write a rough script before I start recording, so I can go through my points faster and not forget any important tips. I have my notes on paper, for easy reading and flipping.
3) Remove all background noise (you had a radio playing or something?). Sometimes my computer fan can get noisy, so I have a solid shield between my microphone and the computer.
4) As somebody mentioned earlier in this thread, most YouTube tutorial videos have "umms" and "ahhs" which are distracting to the viewer and also makes you sound uncertain of your content. Don't worry, it takes practice to consciously avoid saying "umm" and "ahh". The more videos you make, the easier it gets. Here's a video that offers some advice on that subject: https://youtu.be/9sv6Fi70Aug
I still have the occasional "umm" and "ahh", so I know how hard it is to avoid.
