Fantastic video guide! The information you share is really great as it normally takes a pretty long time when self-learning.

Hope you don't mind a small video creation tip. Try get yourself a better microphone. Your voice is not really an issue as your really easy to understand, it's the minor background " echo ". With another microphone then the built-in that I suspect you use, please correct me if I'm wrong, your videos will be even better. (y)

I didn't notice any echo with the microphone. It's the acoustics in the small room, the sound is bouncing off the walls.

I am answering some questions about VirusTotal:
  • What files are controversial on VirusTotal and why?
  • What is the (accidentally) most uploaded file?
  • Why are there so many time stamps? What do they mean?
  • What do I use all those hashes for?

Fantastic! Thanks much.

Exactly my point, and a simple solution is getting another microphone then a built-in as those 9 cases out of 10 can not receive the sound correct and then one end up with a recorded sound like this. Bounce = echo.
Just turn it into a quiet room with foam on the walls if possible.
I partially agree, but more than likely not possible because he got a kid and can't lock himself away in another room.

lol yea I understand but I did say OR. Just turn it into a quiet room with foam on the walls if possible.
That's not possible either. Not at the moment at least.
I think one or two years forward I will be moving, then I might have a proper room for that.

@upnorth I have a proper mic. That's not the issue. I cannot exclude that I am using it wrong, though, because I don't hear if it is bad.
And yeah, my son doesn't like to be alone. He always checks on me when I am in another room.

@oldschool I am glad you learnt something from it :)
