  1. Great video, Kevin. Love the highlighted mouse cursor.
    Question: how do I revert back to my normal mouse cursor when I'm not wearing my presenter / tutorial hat? It's making my daytime job a bit weird! LOL!

  2. Thank You! 😃

    Can you help with: troubleshooting your webcam, “black screen” after OBS crashed. It’s there… the light is on, but no one seems to be on camera!
    Thank you!

  3. Kevin, I like your tutorials. Very punchy and to the point. I want to know how to replicate your style? Do you have any tips on making neat videos? Personally I am flat out getting to the 30sec mark without having some sort of brain fart or interruption.
    Apart from your natural narrative talent, what do you do to keep your videos on track and focused? Scripts? Lots of editing? Rehearsing? I'd very interested to learn.

  4. Hi, I am following your YT channel for a lot of items and I truely have to thank you for all the efforts you have put into this. I know face the challenge of making a professional logo which maybe later on we can convert into an NFT. Maybe you have some advise.

  5. How to control event sequences in OBS? Say start video source at a particular point of our audio source running below – and then iintroduce a picture at.a particular moment, etc?
