Youtube Video Commentary Game

I want to promote more video'd games of TS - it's difficult to follow a wall of text, especially if you're an inexperienced player. Now that I'm an intermediate player I'm beginning to film my TS games. See what you think of the one below. Watching back, I didn't play as "precisely" as I believed, but I'm learning more and more every game:

Nice video. I didn't quite watch it all the way through, but the idea does seem promising. What did you use to record it?

I think you underestimate the beneficial uses of Five Year Plan for the USSR player. That is: using it to discard scoring cards, or using it with low-op US event cards to make them less painful. (Like with Truman Doctrine to take control of a Europe country with 3ops that would otherwise have influence reduced to zero.)

Thanks Cal. I used Camstudio, which was problematic because the video file turned out to be huge (2 hours, 3.3 GB) but I was able to repair it.

You're right, that's another mistake that I only identified on the second watch-through of the video, after I recorded commentary. In the previous game that I played, I held Five Year Plan together with a couple of DEFCON suicide cards so it was deadly. Thus in this game I just thoughtlessly dismissed it without thinking about the circumstances, which were quite favourable for the USSR playing it.

Oh, I must tell you that I certainly did.
