Second Life Vlogger Challenge!

Second Life Vlogger Challenge!

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of my blogger challenges so I thought this would be a great time to encourage all of you to try your hand at Second Life vlogging. It was last year, April 4, 2016, when I did my Dancing in Second Life challenge and encouraged everyone to participate and start creating videos about Second Life and uploading them to youtube. So now in 2017 I am bringing it back, with a bit of a different idea.

Challenge instructions: Share a video of your avatar in Second Life introducing yourself, talking a little bit about what you do in SL, how long you’ve been here, what you plan to share on your youtube channel and any other information you’d like to share. Or if you don’t want to talk in the video you can just dance, explore SL or do any kind of video you feel like doing, just make sure it is about Second Life. I encourage everyone to try and share their video on youtube, but you are free to upload it to flickr, vimeo or anywhere else you prefer. Then come back to this post and leave a link to your video in the comments so we can all click over to see and subscribe to your channel. Please remember to add the words “Second Life” in your tags or description on youtube so it comes up when people search for Second Life related content on youtube.

So here is my Second Life Vlogger Challenge video on YouTube:

I really hope you participate in this challenge. Here are some helpful links to get you started on your video:

  1. How to use OBS Studio to record or live Stream Second LifeIf you want to capture video in Second Life and not sure how to do it, click over to my tutorial that I just did today about capturing and creating video in Second Life using OBS Studio. OBS Studio is completely free to use and I go through step by step on how to set it up and get streaming or recording in Second Life and uploading to youtube.
  2. Linden Lab Snapshot and machinima policyThere are certain rules that Linden Lab has put in place that you need to be aware of before you start shooting video at different locations. If the convenant of the sim does not mention snapshots at all, then you are free to take as many pictures as you like there. However, if it doesn’t mention machinima (video) at all, then you must ask permission from the sim owner first before shooting your video at that location. I sincerely request sim owners to please take a moment right now and put in your convenants that you allow snapshots and machinima, to make it easier on vloggers who like to explore and shoot. Thank you!
  3. Machinima Friendly SimsThe generously talented team at the Blogger and Vlogger Network has setup a page where they share Photogenic Second Life locations and beside their names they have noted some information about them including if they are Machinima (video) friendly. So if you are looking for a beautiful sim to shoot at, click over to take a look at that list, they’ve made it so easy for us.
  4. YouTube Audio LibraryYou want to be careful what kind of music you are adding to your videos because if you use something that is copyrighted, youtube may delete or mute your video. Whenever I add music to my videos, I make sure it is safe to use and most of the time I get it from the YouTube Audio Library.

If you enjoy watching videos about Second Life and looking for more SL vloggers to follow, keep an eye on the comments of this blog post and subscribe to those that share their links. Also click over to my subscriptions page on my youtube channel, I try and subscribe to as many Second Life residents as I find on youtube, you’ll find more people to subscribe to over there.

Just remember, there is no time limit to this blog challenge, or any of my blog challenges. You can do it today, tomorrow, next week, next month or next year. But I do hope you do it soon because I’d love to see it! Happy vlogging!

    What a lovely idea. I am looking forward to see all the new youtube channels coming up :D
    I want to say “thank you”. I never thought about giving the permission to take videos in my land description (now its done). And i never thought about trying to make a video because i just dont know how.
    thanks for sharing all informations about it ♥

  4. Jasonkiep Naxos says:

    Love The idea … think i’m going to give it a try ! …

  6. The lovely Jackson Redstar talked me into promoting my own gardens using voice overs. I enjoyed it actually. Thanks for suggesting we share

  7. […] poured myself a lovely cup of french press coffee, opened YouTube, and ended up installing OBS for Strawberry Singh’s vlogger challenge. I had my breakfast in between of […]

  8. I am so happy that more people are taking to You Tube to show off Second Life. I think it is a wonderful medium for sharing and teaching things about Second Life. My You Tube Channel and blog are mostly about the CTS Wardrobe and how to use that specific product. But more generically I have videos on using Second Life in general, managing inventory (even with out the Wardrobe tool) and other things. I do a live stream roughly once every two weeks again mostly on Wardrobe but I am happy to discuss anything.

  9. Neaira Aszkenaze says:

    Thanks for the challenge<3 can't wait to see all the videos!
    Here is my mess, haha

  10. Trinitydawn Destiny says:

    I felt silly, but here is mine lol.

  11. […] Strawberry’s Vlogging Challenge is here. You can compare her videos and Medhue’s. Strawberry gives away that she has notes and a script for her video in the OBS tutorial as she flips from primary to her secondary screen with the script. […]

  12. I did one, wearing a Zaara outfit and a less pale skin, but the audio didn’t work well:

  13. Your challenge gave me the push I needed to jump right into vlogging. Here is my 1st vlog post.

  14. Adius Darkstone says:

    Here goes! My little effort:

  15. I am big fan of SL machinima, or vlogs if you will. Since a few years i am one of the official Photographers for the Fantasy Faire and this year I am doing a daily video as well in my posts. Because I am not a product or fashion blogger/vlogger, my videos are either telling a story, combined with the blogpost’s text or just showing an awesome location.In rare occasions I use voice-over – but mainly make vids to give an impression and to emphasise a location.

  16. Naria Panthar says:

    I did this 3 weeks ago but I mean its a really good introduction into my channel. Thanks Strawberry this is really a cool idea so I can find more people to sub to on Youtube :P.

  22. Maddie Wyatt says:

  23. And all day project but a fun one!

    On SLArtist momentito.

    Hoping this link will paste in the Video, but we’ll see.

  24. It speaks! Although admittedly there was a fair bit of umming and ahhing as I tried to remember what I’d like to say. Thanks for the challenge Strawberry, t’was fun :D


  25. I thought I posted this earlier, but I guess it didn’t work very well!

    I did the challenge! :)



  26. BloodyKitty230 says:

    I did the challenge, I forgot a little to post it here so more people can see!:

  27. Phen Balfour says:

    A bit rough around the edges but I did it!

  28. Thinks for posting this Strawberry! already seeing alot of new videos up! Awesome! Here is my .02 cents!

  29. Took me 20 tries, finally said ok this is it and left it. First one ever, was going to do so anyway because I want to for my project. I am not a furry :P Just sorta somewhat kinda look like one

  30. Yay, I finaly made my 1st videos! I had so much fun making editing, I used to make video effects just for fun. Now I have a purpose! Still having troubles with camera, but I will get used to it. I would like to be able to hide the camera pointer. Let me know what you think about it guys! I am so excited :D All your videos are great, keep it up people!

  31. I think you had a great idea with this challenge. I would be nice if this encourage people to have fun making machinima.
    This is my latest video on vimeo (my mean account). I also have an account on youtube :


    In second life I’m a traveller ;) I’ve posted some little scenes like this one only in my account of flickr. I hope you enjoy them :)

  33. Pepa Cometa says:

    If you want to start making machinima, the four video tutorials by Erythro Asimov (Songularity) are really great. He taught to me everything I know about machinima. You will enjoy them. He has also an account on youtube with great videos.

  34. Hey everyone!
    Here is my vlogger challenge video :P

  35. In a online world where video now dominates over still images (and still increasingly so), the SL machinima policy seems an archaic remnant of a time when online video was rare, even movie trailers were protected, and 360h quicktime was at the pinnacle. It’s about time it was revisited.

    Hopefully I can do this challenge, but life seems so busy! In the meantime, here is my vimeo channel:

    (Youtube is very Creative Commons unfriendly, so I no longer upload there)

  36. Lark's lounge says:

    I’ve been really enjoying watching everyone’s version of this challenge… they’re all similar yet different, each catering to their own personal style of vlogging, which is honestly what I love about this challenge! So, that inspired me to of course try it out for myself, over here on my own youtube channel!

  37. Ravensong Merlin says:

    I’ve never attempted to vlog before, but I thought I’d give it a go! Here is my rambling attempt at introducing myself. :D

  38. Dear Strawberry, here are my 5 cents to your post:

    Thank you for your great idea and encouragement!


    In case somebody is curious – here is the link to my flickr video album:


    ok…so i did it… theres the link, happy watching !
