Here is the place to organize, propose and post so we can get some video guides for Classic. More will be added when I'm back in the office Thursday.
What we need: Clear, easy to understand guides for novice and intermediate players (as a start) that will help in a large area where RO is deficient: getting started in the game. There are a lot of systems (Guilds, upgrading, building characters) where players are pretty much expected to visit a wiki or read a FAQ to do. I think hearing and seeing guides on youtube would help to ease that learning curve while we also work on other ways to make the game less of an impossibility for new players.
How to capture gameplay: Xellie has a guide here on how to record live video to twitch, you can use OBS in place of Fraps to record
Editing: If you don't want to get a subscription to Adobe premiere, Windows Movie Maker will do in a pinch.
Format: I'll do some research into this on resolution, bitrate and it should be 720p minimum.
Rewards: What I am proposing is a two tier system...1 week of VIP for 5 minute guides or unedited let's plays that show you how to do something. For longer in-depth guides or ones that show editing, captions and narration we can award up to and over 4 weeks of VIP for high quality efforts.
Restrictions: No licensed music, no profanity. That's about it. We do want entertaining guides.
Submission: Post the video in draft or complete form on your own youtube account and share the link with me-preferably it would be posted in this thread for other people to give feedback as well. If it isnt' up to snuff or could use some fine tuning, I'll make suggestions on how to improve. If it looks good, I'll get you a code to punch into the website that will give you VIP time. The video would then be uploaded to the Warpportal Youtube account with credit to the author. The video can be something you have already made, it does not need to be new to qualify as long as it meets the requirements of what we are looking for.
Support we can give: If there are specific monsters, equipment or a testing environment you need to show that you would not be able to replicate by yourself you can ask for what you'll need and we can provide monster spawning, loaned equipment and moving you to the prison map to facilitate the video.
