Why can’t YouTube be more user friendly?

Why can’t YouTube be more user friendly?

Or maybe I should say more idiot-proof.

So I’m trying to start a YouTube channel, to chronicle my life as a brain injury survivor. The only problem is, because I have a brain injury, setting up the channel (and recording videos) is proving to be more difficult than I had anticipated.

I have a camera and a microphone, but I just can’t figure out how to get them to work with YouTube. I have to set up something called “encoding software” – but I just can’t figure out how. Google/YouTube’s help articles have been anything but helpful. I guess they just assume everybody knows what they’re doing.

If anybody reading this has a successful YouTube channel, and wouldn’t mind lending me a hand, I’d be forever in your debt. I might even be able to pay you a small amount for your time.

Thanks for reading, and have a pleasant day!
