Using your webcam to record video on YouTube

Just an FYI for anyone who has used their webcam to record directly to YouTube.  I was talking with someone today and suggested they might consider doing video recording of family memories as they remembered them directly to YouTube by recording straight to the site.  When I went to look for recording interface, it was gone.  So I went to the YouTube help site, and found the following info:

The webcam capture feature will not be available on YouTube after January 16, 2016.Previously, if you had a webcam built in or connected to your computer, you could record a webcam video on You

So if this is the method you have been using to create content for YouTube, you need to be exploring options, because in about 2 weeks, THIS recording feature is gone!
