MSN (Escargot) Tour Video help


Recently, I have announced I would try to create a
tour video guide, without any voice, to guide newcomers into
Escargot, as well as MessengerGeek.

Although some of it has been done, I still am struggling
about a few things:

  • Should I use Windows XP Music, Wii Sounds and themes or any other copyrighted music? I can’t only use royalty free music. If so, what music should I use?

  • What scheme/theme should the video reflect? (2001-MSN era-like? Live Aero/Vista-like?)

  • Should the video be divided into sections? (Like the Windows ME Video Introduction?) Or should it help the viewer to download MSN and see the features it includes?

  • Should I wait for WLM 2009 to start the tour video? Or should I begin making it
    right now?

It may seem like a lot, but I’m trying to aim for something that the whole community
will enjoy watching, something that represents Escargot in some way.

Thank you for your patience.

Use royalty free music.
I’d prefer the style of one of the tutorial videos that Microsoft did during the WLE 09-era. It’s better to have the iconic Windows Live intro of those videos at the start of your tutorial.

I’d say use KPM music classic library to find fitting music for the tour :stuck_out_tongue:

Only if you feel like it,
besides, I honestly don’t know if I’m up to write scripts lmao.

But I honestly appreciate the proposition, perhaps
it could be an option at some point :eyes:

Could I have a YT link to one of those WLE 09 tutorials?

Also, does that mean I shouldn’t use Windows XP Tour music,
or even Wii Soundtracks music?

and yeah probably for the royalty free it’s not a bad idea


Alright, any music I could use?
I really don’t know which fits best.
