2 things:

- Stop putting custom music over your gameplay videos. Not just you, but Youtube in general. I am directing this at you because it takes one person to start making a difference and it may as well be you. Combining incongruous outside music with gameplay footage always spoils the entire video. I would not listen to my favorite song over footage of my favorite game; they do not belong together, and so it is with every song addition to every "music video" people make out of their gameplay footage. Besides, the dungeon and boss musics are appropriate enough. In fact, I give tremendous praise to FFXIV's sound team for making the dungeon music and battle music segue together as it does, rather than leaving us to the jarring stop-and-go music effect one finds in the field, or the uninterrupted loop during leves. I hereby submit SE to make all dungeon music this way. But I digress. If an aesthetic reason is not sufficient, I will argue that original audio retains important sound cues for people who would analyze the video: abilities, spells, enemy noises, etc. Yes, even the nasally utterings of your fellow Ventrilo nerd buddies and the chirping of that one girl in the LS contribute more than an abysmal cover of Jefferson Airpine.

lol what an inappropriate song. Though I still can't decide whether it's better or worse than other FF-related videos that feel the need to put One Winged Angel over everything.

@Almalexia wow a whole paragraph about what you don't like... smh. Last time I checked it was our video we use mumble and that sounds through fraps videos (we talk about random crap the whole time I doubt youtube viewers wanna here us talking smack to one another or talking about how someones taking shots of Jim Bean)... wth am i explaining this to you for? And on another note this is not a training video this was just a Batraal getting killed video... wow...

@DoctorMog Thanks to Doc we learned alot from your videos!!! Hands down the best FF XI and XIV videos out!!!
@KaneKitty thanks alot!!

Enjoy~

I'll add my name and make it an entire paragraph about something at least 2 people dislike.

Hmm blue person ranked excellent for a comment... I suppose I should disagree... but I can't. The majority of videos I'm interested in REQUIRE no music (Automtive racing, science topics, and video games). Music is good for some slideshow type things, but I prefer my videos (notice I said prefer)to retain thier stock sound.

I get the comment on the experience of the video, but perhaps it's just a musical distaste thing. I didn't mind the cover, love the original, but I didn't see it detracting from the constant bleeping of the interface and the repetitive battle music.

To the OP, grats on your kill and don't listen to the BGM zealotry. :)

Well I think it comes down to what the video is supposed to accomplish - that is, what it is supposed to be. Is it intended to be a video of someone's fight with a boss monster from a specific game? If so, then the focus is on the game itself and the intended audience is people looking for more information (strategies, etc.) about the game. Or is it intended to be a video about something else in the game, showcasing a humourous occurrence or a dramatic victory in which the focus would be on the characters or the setting - only more generally dealing with the game itself.

Indeed: does it show a strategy - or does it tell a story? The former should have the least amount of intervention possible: the focus is on game and game mechanics; the latter can have all the new voice-overs, cuts, music, and effects it desires, for the focus is on something besides the game.

Look at it this way: if someone uploaded a video of "the final cut-scene," should it feature the original music, sound, and visuals? If someone uploaded a video of "an RP session with my friend," does it matter whether the original music, sound, and visuals are completely preserved?

Ultimately one could argue that it comes down to taste, but I know that when I look up "Fight with Jumbo Cactuar," I'm not watching the one with the Fallout Boy (or whatever the uploader's definition of "kicka$$ music!11" is) loop.

wow it was just a "The Elite beat Batraal" video not something to make a history report about... I guess the part I dont get is... nevermind... welp if you enjoy it great if you dont there are plenty more videos out there most that show strategy this was just suppose to be something fun to watch and promote the visuals of gameplay in this battle... Have a great day and thanks for all the feedback! :D

i also hate when people put obnoxious music over videos. but at the same time they have the right to do so and i have the right to put the volume down and hate them for it on the inside.

i like that your promoting the game. i also like that your not just using the official forums for it. i hate that i didnt see any mages nuking. not your fault, SE just sucked at designing the mages utility in group combat. good job.

Song wouldn't be so bad if he'd used the original Jefferson Airplane version. Such a great song.

As far as what wasn't in the video was what everyone else was doing my bad I forgot I had the camera to zoomed in to show the rest of the folks. Personally I find it boring to watch a game movie and here the everyone conversation on mumble but thats just me.

Motto proves true "Haters will always find something to hate on... Don't believe me? Go ask Jesus..."

You could have muted the sound of the fraps video and just got the Raid dungeon music from the OST.

I know you're missing the point on purpose, but how many people don't realize it, I wonder?
