Tell him to stream. It would probably be better for him to do as youtube is over saturated and he'll be easily overlooked. I put over 1000s videos up and countless hours of editing shit down for my lets play guides and I just never got the attention.
I got a buddy who just finished majoring in philosophy and is now majoring in art. I told him he should start an art channel on YouTube where he just paints really cool paintings and talks about philosophy junk. Would you watch his channel if he creates it?
