    I have one Youtube video up that I knocked off in 5 minutes to show a friend the difference between a trumpet and a flugelhorn. Web Cam and imbedded microphone in my office/practice room. Terrible acoustics, lousy reproduction from the mic, but it was good enough to accomplish what I needed to accomplish. When I really record myself I use a Shure 58 with a X2u USB adapter using a lap top set up with a good sound card. An entirely different process for an entirely different purpose with a dramatically different result. There's some good stuff on Youtube, but there is a whole lot more "get something on video to share with friends" stuff. After all, isn't that what Youtube was originally set up to do.
