Think that I may take part in this. Don't know whether I prefer a Video Camera or $100 though.

If you use a Mac computer then I recommend Screenium as your screen recording program. Also notepad isn't really professional, a clear, load, formal voice is recommended for the narration.

Natashko, does the video for 'The best uCoz web-services overview video' have to include all of the topics stated or can it only have some?
Kind regards,
Elliott.

The best video tutorial in a foreign language

What counts as a foreign language? If I'm Hungarian, and i make a video in Hungarian too, and i upload it to the English site, or if I'm Hungarian, but i make an English one?

Yeah, this is a signature...

Greetings from
Hungarian
