Hi, welcome to the forum. I recommend you change the topic's name to something not so Generic, for example "X-treme Productions youtube channel"
I would recommend not abusing on words like epic and amazing. I will fix a couple of links that you have put in other threads that are not properly placed. I will remove the double posts.
It is great to see people with energy trying to make good videos, you have a good filming equipment, good skills, good style. My advice is to try to film in a more steady way, tripod or something like that. And maybe not so saturate the colors in the editing. I am an amateur, so do not take my advices so seriously, and ask around.

So, here you got an example of why one needs to choose carefully certain aspects when posting on the Internet. Arjan is partially joking, partially being serious, I guess.
If you put words on your videos like "amazing" people will tend to compare it with the other "amazing" videos they know, and when it comes to diabolo there are many videos that are crazy good, and then this one does not look so amazing. It is also true that choosing these words is already a bit mainstream and it makes the viewer to take a certain position, for instance I refuse to watch any video with the following kind of title "This person started to do something and you will never believe what happened", this sentence literally makes me sick.
The second part of the critic, in my eyes, is a critic to how much care people puts into their pieces of "art". This part is a bit unfair to me due to your age. So, in my eyes it makes sense to have a certain degree of requirements for one self, and this, for instance, involves trying to create new things, new concepts, new angles... the underlying idea, for me, is that the Internet is populated with many "things" and trying to improve them is a good thing to do. I think what you are doing is in general lines good enough, and that you have a good direction.
The last lesson one can learn from Arjan's compact humorist ballistic critic is that is very convenient to learn how to laugh at one self, it allows to survive in this sometimes cruel world. So it is a fact that your video has quite good filming, but not such a crazy good diabolo level, at least not considering the films around these days. Probably you acknowledge that fact, so it would be nice if you could already now laugh at it... in my first video I acknowledged that the tricks were not so good, so I called it "Enjoy the views (I will improve the tricks)". The video happens in Norway, so views are great, camera quality is bad, skills were average-low, creativity was average-low.

So, this is my view on it. I hope the comments so far do not damage your willingness to have fun with diabolo. It is all about that.

Edit: about how to rename the videos, I would suggest 'Intermediate diabolo tricks by YOUR_NAME', or 'Diabolo in NAME_OF_YOUR CITY', but my favorite would be something different and more creative, "Gliding around the diabolos" is quite descriptive to me for what one can see in the video, and then you can call them 1 and 2. Anything avoiding the words "awesome", "amazing" "cool" "epic", etc. On the other hand this kind of words can give you more results in random searches, you can also decide that you like it this way, and leave it as it is.

Hey there X-Treme, looking good for your first video! closer to getting 3 diabolos than me anyway! How long have you been diaboloing for?

Yeh, i agree with Wis. Try to avoid putting awesome and epic in your video names (if you are going to be posting it on diabolo.ca) as it automatically raises the expectations of what we are about to witness... there are many people on this forum that have been diaboloing since before you could walk and will find its content fairly un-epic.
Try choosing a name that describes how you were feeling or what you were doing that day you were filming or if anything exciting happened or if you ate a sandwich... it can be anything!
I made a video and i had so many ideas flying about how i was going to make it and what i was going to film but it actually took me ages to work up the motivation to get up and do it. Which is why i named it (low and behold)... Get Up! it doesn't have to be anything special just give it your own stamp and not one you've seen on youtube.

However if its youtube views that you care about then this would be fine as for a non-juggler who has only seen a diabolo that one time when his friend brought it to school and is just gandering about in the very very depths of youtube he will probably find your video awesome and epic.

Keep it up!

Yes, I was being partly serious and partly joking. Thanks to Wis for explaining that, I could honestly not bother, nor could I keep myself from being rude and cruel.
Actually I'm happy for you now you are making your own decisions, whatever they maybe. You choose, period. You choose to keep it epic and amazing, you are epic and amazing. Sure.
Sadly I must realize, I have become somewhat of a hater myself. Ow sad face...  :(

And you even got a bit of controversy in the launch of the video, that is always more publicity. I will surely remember the name :)

Call your videos whatever you want to, you don't need to do anything differently just because some people on the internet get annoyed
Sorry for my awful posts years ago. I was even more anal and un-self-aware than i am now.

Not too bad for your 1st video, but I wish you would complete some of the tricks before cutting it to another sequence. Commendable effort. However as others have pointed out the title is a bit misleading IMO.

Inexperienced diabolist = epic, amazing, cool, awesome etc in video title. More experienced diabolist = some artsy, fancy schmancy crap ("Morning mist with a hint of douche")...what a silly discussion. :-D

Gj on the video overall but I will agree with Wis about the steadyness. 2D repeated suns was the highlight for me. Looks way awkward to do that way when you're used to either c fans or no setup throw.
