Would people actually watch a video?

OK, so I was turning a steady profit at $10NL a few months ago, moved up, lost some, moved even higher, lost even more. Long story short I dropped down to $100, and due to still not dropping down I got lucky and am now ~$250. So I decided to go back to playing $10NL. Problem is, after almost 4k hands, I'm barely above even. I've looked through the hands in poker tracker extensively, and at least the big hands have been bad beats as far as I can tell, had KK vs. AA twice, AA vs. set twice (one I folded before all my money got in because 2 people were pushing at it, winner showed a flopped set). 3-outer with AQ vs. A3 with an AKK3 board. And yes, I've gotten paid off by some of these plays as well, having a set called by a gut shot and missing, slowplaying a flopped 2-pair and 5-betting into my nut straight on the river, etc.

So my problem I think could be in the smaller pots. Either I'm just getting super unlucky (which I think could be a PART of it) or there's a hole I'm just not seeing in my game. So if I record a video of me 6-tabling $10NL would people actually watch it and comment on my play or would I just be wasting my time?

I personally would gladly watch the vid, as well as comment on anything I think might need improving.

I think vids in general are a great HA tool because they include a whole session as opposed to one hand, and also show the actual hand in real-time - timing actually does have a pretty big effect on your decision, at least imo. The only thing is that vids obviously take a lot more effort than running a HH through a hand converter and pasting it here.

Anyways ya, I'm definitely down to watch it. I know from your posts you're a smart poker mind, but something's gotta be wrong if you're losing at 10nl...

Yep, I'd watch too, though I tend to comment more at hand histories than videos, vids kinda go by too fast too note easily.

Thanks, just recorded a video. One problem, it's 800+ MB. Tried splitting it, but windows movie maker kills the resolution, cards aren't even visible, and I can't find any other software for free to just split the video. It's only 25 minutes too, don't know why the file's so huge.

I use virtualdub to compress vids (just post if you need help using it).

There's an option to split archives in WinRAR, so that shouldn't be a problem.

800MB for 25 mins is pretty huge though (I usually get something like 250MB before compression and 150MB after for half an hour's video). What are you using to record? Drop the quality a little (it's not like it's crucial as long as stacks etc can be read), and make sure you're only recording the part of the screen you need to be recording.
