Title: Changing a Dreamcast clock battery
Post by: Titan on December 19, 2020, 08:53:52 AM
So I have a lot of free time on my hands so I'm giving this YouTube thing a go (it keeps me occupied lol). I'm trying a new video editing program that can actually run on my ancient computer so I slapped this together as a test. My Dreamcast asks me to put in the time every time it boots. So I fixed that. Video below on how to do that. You can actually see half my gorgeous face and see what Titan looks like IRL  :headbang:

lol titan on seeing half of your gorgeous face on video.  cute indeed.  titan is going to freak out that i said that.  i just skimped to the part that showed your face and then go back to the beginning to watch a little bit of it and didn't bother to watch the whole entire video.  sorry, i get bored easily.

btw, i just checked the stats of your video.  i was surprised that it said the frame rate is 25 fps for the video.  did you shoot this in 25 fps or you edited it to 25 fps?

I dunno. I thought I shot in 60 fps 1080p. The editing program may have downscaled it for YouTube.

Sweet as.. at some point i should do the same with my DC.

Been thinking of doing repair vids for awhile. I repair amps, guitar pedals, guitars and random electronic things every now and then. (outside of repair Motorola radios (my job))

Do it. It's cheap to get the battery and holder. It really does take about as long as it takes in the video I made. For someone like you it's probably a 15 minute repair, if that. I have to hand it to Sega. The Dreamcast is super easy to take apart. I'm also working on a video of Dreamcast controller reconditioning of two trashed controllers and disassembling them is so freaking easy. I should be done shooting today. I can probably make 25 bucks a piece off them too.

If you do make videos share them. I'd love to see them! To get into it you just have to grab a camera and do them. You get better as time goes on. I mean, I went to school for film and TV production so I have a background in shooting and editing so the learning curve on editing was low for me. But I am using a new video editor called Shotcut. It's a free open source video editor that is easy to learn and has a lot of tutorials. It's good for people just starting out. I was using DaVinci Resolve on my laptop but it really works best on a two monitor setup. I can't use it on my desktop because it's 10 years old and doesn't meet the system requirements lol. I love Resolve because it's super powerful and you can do a lot, but it's a steep learning curve if you aren't familiar with video editing programs.
