Curate YouTube Playlists with New Intro and Outro Video Feature | ↬  Curate ᔥ Tools 'n' Tips | Scoop.it

Robin Good: YouTube has just introduced a great, valuable feature to its playlist service, by allowing playlist authors to add short video clips at the beginning, end and in between any clip, to contextualize, introduce or explain what has been seen or is coming up next.


From the original article on TheNextWeb: "YouTube decided to help out the community a bit by releasing a new intro and outro feature that lets you insert professional clips in between your videos easily.

 

YouTube Engineer Eric Lundberg said: "You can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions and even add royalty-free music tracks. Interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account, and are eligible for monetization if they are at least 15 seconds long."

 

These particular features allow video creators to tell a full story in a series of videos. Even if you’re not making your own videos, creating a playlist is a way of providing a valuable service to the community."

This is a great addition for video curators who can now add their viewpoint, comments and context to any video compilation they decide to assemble.


N.B.: You can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions and even add royalty-free music tracks. Interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account, and are eligible for monetization if they are at least 15 seconds long.


The interstitial video clips can be recorded directly from you webcam.
